Find a Walt Disney World Hat for Every Occasion
A trip to Walt Disney World ® isn’t a trip without seeing or purchasing Mickey Mouse Ears or some sort of Disney ® hat. And if you grew up when the only hat Disney ® offered were those standard black Mickey ears with the red Disney ® logo than you’ll be surprised at just how far (and how exciting) Disney ® hats have come. Here are a few of Orlando Fun Tickets favorite Disney ® hats:
Glow with the Show hats – Walt Disney World’s ® latest hats really aren’t your typical Disney ® hat, or hat in general. These colorful Mickey ears are more than just two ears that sit on your head. They actually interact and light up during the nighttime spectacular Fantasmic! at Hollywood Studios ®, Wishes fireworks and the Celebrate the Magic nighttime projection show at Magic Kingdom ®. During this holiday season the Glow with the Show hats even “perform” during The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights and “Holiday Wishes: Celebrate the Spirit of the Season.”
Mickey Ears – Since Mickey Mouse Ears are one of the best-selling hats in Walt Disney World ® it’s only fair that we discuss all of the different variations of the famous ears you can accumulate on your visits. Purists can enjoy the classic Mickey Mouse ears we discussed earlier in this post. There is also the R2D2 Mickey hat, which features the famous droid from Star Wars; the Tower of Terror Mickey ears that resembles the bell hop’s uniform with Mickey’s ears on top; Pirate Mickey ears, which feature a bandana with skull and crossbones and sometimes even an earring hanging from one of the ears; the Mater Mickey Ears showcase one of the most popular characters from Disney/Pixar’s “Cars;” Jack Skellington Mickey hats feature the kinda creepy character from Nightmare Before Christmas in black and white and Goofy Mickey ears are just as they sound, Mickey Mouse ears with Goofy plastered on the front. There are definitely many more Mickey Mouse Ear hats to choose from so make sure you look around before purchasing your favorite!
Character hats – Mickey Mouse ears aren’t the only hats that adorn guest’s heads during a Walt Disney World ® trip. Character hats featuring Pluto, Donald, Goofy, Chip and Dale and many more are also a popular hat seen throughout all four parks.
So many hats, too little time! To find the Disney ® hat that best fits you, Mickey Ears or not look for discounted Walt Disney World ® tickets right here on Orlando Fun Tickets.

Get a New Taste of Morocco at Spice Road Table in Epcot
Guests to the Morocco Pavilion at Epcot will soon be exploring new tastes from the country when the Spice Road Table opens in 2013. The restaurant joins Tangierine Café and Restaurant Marrakesh as the third Morocco dining option in the area. Spice Road Table is said to showcase Morocco’s authentic charm along with its delicious dishes from every region.
As you approach the new Moroccan restaurant you will feel like you’ve stepped into an outdoor café in the Mediterranean. The restaurant’s exterior is whitewashed with icy blue accents reminiscent of the famous “Blue City” of Chefchaouen in the North African country’s Rif Mountains. Spice Road Table will feature terrace seating for 120 guests and room for 60 indoors with awesome views of the World Showcase lagoon. This will be the fifth Epcot ® restaurant to offer a view of the World Showcase Lagoon, joining the United Kingdom’s Rose and Crown Restaurant, and its Yorkshire County Fish Shop and Mexico’s La Hacienda de San Angel and La Cantina de San Angel. These restaurants are typically popular areas to watch IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth nighttime show.
The design will also feature a Moroccan “souk” where guests can purchase Moroccan themed items like henna tattoos before sitting down to their meal, as well as olive oils and ingredients from the restaurant and the dishes so you can try to re-create your favorite Spice Road Table dish at home.
And now onto the food! So far the food and drink offerings have been described as a “Food and Wine Festival all yearlong” with tapas, small plates, olive oils and ingredients, and great wines representing specific Mediterranean countries. Guests will be able to taste every region of Morocco by either ordering a grouping of dishes from the same country, or mix and match for a variety of flavors.
Dishes include zesty harissa chicken drummettes; a Mediterranean omelet with sausage; potatoes and caramelized onion; mussels with preserved lemons and tomato sauce; Moroccan merguez sausage with a tomato salad; and garlicky jumbo shrimp in a spicy chile pepper sauce.
To the left of the Morocco pavilion will be a walk-up window bar selling beverages, cocktails, wines and pastries. This window will replace the current Morocco pastries kiosk.
No word yet on the opening date but you can bet Orlando Fun Tickets will report back as soon as we know more. In the meantime you can enjoy the rest of the Morocco pavilion and its food with discounted tickets right here on Orlando Fun Tickets.

Inside Honey I Shrunk the Kids Play Area at Hollywood Studios
If after watching the hit 1980’s movie “Honey I Shrunk the Kids” you wanted to see what life would really be like, well shrunken you can now do so at Honey I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure at Disney’s Hollywood Studios ®! Kids of all ages, and some adults will love shrinking down to the size of a bug and climbing and crawling their way through the many movie set props at this interactive play area inspired by the Disney ® movie.
When Professor Wayne Szalinski accidentally shrinks his children and then tosses them out with the trash in the Disney ® movie “Honey I Shrunk the Kids” your first thought may have been horror, but what ensues is a thrilling and fun day where the kids discover a whole new world and begin to appreciate nature and the life they have. At this unique movie set adventure you and your kids will also discover what it’s like to be shrunk down to size and encounter the little things, like bugs, hoses and dogs that we often times don’t think twice about.
As you enter the play area you’ll instantly be transported to the movie set and a much smaller size as giant anthills, massive spider webs, garden hoses and much more loom above your head and around your tiny feet. Once the kids see all of the things to climb on you probably wont’ see them for the rest of the time you’re in the play area. It’s that cool, and that big!
The Honey I Shrunk the Kids Set Movie Adventure is an 11,000-square-foot play area that includes all things gigantic like 30-foot-tall blades of grass to meander through, a 52-foot-long leaking water hose where you’ll try not to get soaked, a massive bumblebee, giant plant-roots you’ll try not to trip over, a slide designed to look like a giant roll of Kodak film, an enormous sniffing dog nose designed after the dog from the movie, a spider web of climbing ropes, convoluted anthills and mazes to explore and hide in and much more giant-sized fun.
If you’re not sure where to go first, make sure you check out the map at the entrance to the playground
