About behindthemouse

Over the last few years we have been trying to about creating a website that is both fun for us, but has interest for the reader. We thought long and hard, but everything we thought of was not long term interesting to us. We needed something we could love and bring life to it, that is when it hit us, we should start a website about Disney. We knew though that there were many websites out there that already touched on many Disney subjects, we needed something to be different. It dawned on us while building the website that our love of runDisney could be combined with our excitement for all other things Disney to bring to life not only a resource for those who run Disney, but to Disney fans alike. We wanted to bring a bit of magic, and we hope you hang on for the ride as we explore the magical world of Disney World .

New Security Measures Coming Soon To Disney Parks


Disney Parks Brace For New Security Rules

As happy families everywhere start to pack their bags for a summer full of fun, the Walt Disney Co. has announced plans for further increases in security in their theme parks. The first of these measures will start in two weeks and will take effect in all six US based theme parks.

In 2015 Disney added metal detectors to the entrances of its parks, guests are randomly screened prior to entering the turnstile area. This security measure added to the bag check which started shortly after 9/11. The bag check is currently performed on all guest bags prior to entering the park.

In addition to the metal detectors, Disney also banned Selfie Sticks, costumes for adults, masks, swords and toy guns in 2015. They also stopped selling toy guns in the parks. These guns have been a popular purchase for boys since the park opened in 1971.

As of April 14th, guests entering Disney parks in California and Florida will be required to surrender all liquid filled containers. This includes water bottles, soda bottles, prepackaged juices and other beverage containers. One exception will be expressed milk for breast fed babies under the age of 2 years. For guests having special medical needs, a drop-off of medically necessary beverages can prearranged though Guest Services.

“We continue to place guest security at the top of our list when it comes to introducing new security measures in the parks,” stated Joe Fox, a Disney spokesperson. Mr. Fox continued, “We have decided to give our guests a two week notice in order to allow for guests to rearrange their plans. In addition, we are offering a $.50 per bottle discount on all waters purchased in the parks to help defer any costs to our guests for the next year.”

As always, guests are welcome to ask for a glass of water, at no cost, at any quick service location, as well as enjoy any one of the chilled water fountains throughout the parks.

Further security plans will be released throughout April as they gear up for a Disney Summer!

Disney Is Magic In Any Language

The Mansfield Speaks Their Own Language With Disne

One of the thing I truly enjoy about Disney is how they reach out to every guest in their own way. Even those who feel separated from the world they live in can be reached though the power of Disney Magic. Watch the video below and see how Minnie reaches the hearts of these two precious kids.

I remember the days when working at the Festival Of The Lion King at Animal Kingdom when I would get to see the signing performers. They would not just stand their like you see on TV and sign, to them this was a performance. They were in with the show and watching them was just as exciting as the show itself.

One day I ran into one of them after the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular at Hollywood Studios. I asked her about what she does and found out some interesting facts. I didn’t know, but they are an outside vendor that Disney hires. They also do performances for Sea World and Universal. They are only in the parks a few days a week, so guests with hearing disabilities need to check with guest relations prior to their trip to make sure they can see all the shows.

Does Disney speak to you in a special way? Tell us below what way it hits your hear.

So Many Cool Adventures Coming Your Way at Disney

8-19-2015 10-42-44 AM

I am so excited to hear the new adventures coming your way at the Disney Parks and Resorts. Not only will we be getting a Star Wars Land in Florida, but also one in California. Bringing Star Wars to life will be a huge expansion for the Disney and Star Wars partnership.

Coming next year will be an all new Sorin’ Over The World. This magical journey will add to the Sorin’ Over California adventure in both parks.

Toy Story Land will be making a big expansion to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. With the current expansion of Toy Story Mania opening later this year, we can expect lots of cool adventures to come, including an Andy sized room where you are made to feel like a toy.

Disney will continue to integrate the Marvel brand into the parks as they are working on an Iron Man ride.

Of course, lets not forget the coming Avatar Land opening in the coming years. This high tech adventure will make you feel like you are on Pandora.
