I'm only about 2 hours away from Poughkeepsie.
I have no idea. I went to Disney Store and noticed they were sold out there. Sorry.

just got back from wdw. a quick review of the new stuff.
Pandora outside/daylight: A+ everywhere I looked were photo ops. the mountains are epic, the flora was cool, the fauna was... strangely missing. needs an animal or 2. maybe some banshees waaaaay up on the mountain tops?
pandora outside/nighttime: B was certainly as cool as any other disney park area at night, but it was kinda dark (nothing like the movie). also, needs animals or at least animal sounds. admittedly, both times night trips it was crowded and rainy.
FoP: A++ very awesome! enough that we went back on another day and fought crowds to do it again (fp the first time).
NRJ: B could be an A if it was longer and there was more, but we were plenty happy to wait in the 30 minute line the second time (FP the first). it is certainly better than peter pan and that line is always over an hour. the Shaman is absolutely mesmerizing. A+++ for her.
rivers of light: B clearly not a match for the MK show, but we really liked it. I think it fits the park and was a nice way to end the day.
happily ever after: A+ holy cow that show was more spectacular and visceral than I would have thought! saw it twice. bravo disney!
Disney Quest: for something that hasn't changed (in what, 20 years?) we still had a ton of fun. sure wish they could figure out how to keep it around. I'd stop by every single trip if it was more along the lines of $20 for 2-3 hours (and it wouldn't hurt to update some of the graphics from 1998 ). with magic band technology that should be possible. met a cast member (who was apparently filling in during breaks) on the top floor and then 20 minutes later on the bottom floor. he said he was the evil twin
rainbow over the castle: A++ disney really knows how to put on a show
Maybe the sounds were off for you or something. When I was there I found the animal sounds to be amazing. The sounds change as the day goes on and into the night. They really made it feel like animals were out in the background.
I noticed the sounds, too. On one of the nights we were there the banshees were absolutely shrieking. It sounded like they were swooping above us. The other nights we were there we heard the sounds but not quite as loud.
oh good. all I heard could have been a swarm of mutant cricket/cicada hybrids.
Those darn invasive species
Fairly spot on review, I am a bit more critical, only giving NRJ a C and Happily ever after a B+. Good analysis all around.
That's a double rainbow. OMG.
Pixar Film festival at Epcot reopens today with two new shorts.
New Dooney and Bourke bags.
Looks like it is back now - it is before the fun drop and is where they will take your picture (photo from wdwnt.com)
My poor wallet.
This may be bigger news than Pandora to me. I'm exaggerating but not really
My moms too.
Vero Beach gets 4-diamond status
Medal reveal for DLP half marathon weekend.
Serious jealousy right there...
The information we received from Disney specifically said "Guests will enjoy sweet treats, specialty beverages, and prime seating along World Showcase Lagoon" - I don't think they'd say that if seating wasn't going to be offered.
There was a series of cartoon shorts under the Disney Treasures title. They were packaged in a tin case. I own the complete series. They are only available on eBay or Amazon 3rd party. Some of the versions are quite expensive.
side comment - I got my medals in the mail for the RunDisney virtual running series and I was pretty impressed by the size and the heft of them ... I was thinking for being a virtual event they would be scaled back a bit but they are pretty high quality
