Toy Story Land Construction Update

It’s been quite some time since I’ve shared an update on Toy Story Land’s construction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida, but that’s not because of a lack of progress.  Progress has actually been quite steady, and the constant influx of aerial photos online have been difficult to choose from!  But with the land’s opening less than six months away now, let’s take a look at the current state of things in Walt Disney World…

D23 Expo 2017 Recap: Toy Story 4, Toy Story Land and Beyond!

It’s been nearly five months since the D23 Expo back in July, and I’ve been working on this post here and there since then, trying to collect my thoughts and photos from our experience – there was a lot about the event to process, and I’ve been rather overwhelmed with the thought of summarizing it all.  However, with the recent controversy over John Lasseter’s allegations of misconduct, my recollections are now rather bittersweet.  I’m thankful, though, that we attended the Expo while the magic was still unsullied for us.  And since I refuse to let anyone destroy my love for Pixar or the toys – I will continue to view the studios as the sum of all the talented people who work there, not as one sole person – I’d like to look back, and share what we saw and learned at the Expo in regards to Pixar, and Toy Story specifically.

Jessie Snubbed Again in Magic Kingdom Character Switch

For the past eight months, I’ve been putting up quite a fight for Jessie, whose meet and greet in the Magic Kingdom fell victim to apparent budget cuts last September.  Besides a steady stream of social media posts, countless emails have been sent to Walt Disney World, by both myself and other fans; conversations have been shared via phone and in-person; and a petition and Facebook page have even been created, all in an attempt to get Jessie’s presence reinstated in the Disney Parks.  But sadly, once again, another character change-up has only lengthened Jessie’s absence.

Why I’m a Toy Story Fangirl… and Why Jessie Matters

collage_jessie

I received confirmation a couple days ago that Jessie is in fact slated to be cut from meet and greets at Walt Disney World, and needless to say it hit me like a punch in the gut.  But since Jessie never gives up, and I’m going to continue to fight to keep her as a meetable character in the parks, I thought this would be as good a time as any to write something more personal, and share just why this character and her fictional world mean so much to me.  Although I’ve written before about why Jessie is important as a character in the Toy Story series of films, these are my own reasons why she matters, to me…
