Disney World Surprise Doesn't Go Quite As Planned, Video Posted On Youtube | Abc7news.com

(YouTube) Tuesday, July 08, 2014 Disney World is supposed to be the happiest place on Earth, but one family's reaction from their son wasn't quite what they were expecting when they told him he was going there. The family posted a video showing the adorable reaction on YouTube . The description reads: "My wife and I decided to completely surprise our kids with a trip to Disney World. We packed up the car, then woke the kids up and put them in the car." It only takes a moment or so for their daughter to realize where they are going. She's excited, but her little brother starts bawling. The story does have a happy ending. The family says the little boy ended up having a great time at Disney World and is asking to go back. Disney is the parent company of KTRK-TV.

Walt Disney World through the years gallery Day after day, anxious guests have spent up to half of any given theme park day in line for a chance to interact with Anna and Elsa, the new belles of the Disney ball. Logically, the ladies debuted at the Norway Pavilion at Epcot, but when crowds overwhelmed the area, the meet and greet was moved to Princess Fairytale Hall at the Magic Kingdom (evicting previous resident princesses in the process). Though better equipped to accommodate the throngs of Frozen fans, Princess Fairytale Hall is not the end game for the resort's Frozen push. Disney Parks recently announced plans for "Frozen Summer Live", a special event to run from July 5 - September 1 at Disney's Hollywood Studios. "Frozen Summer Live" promises a slew of spontaneous surprises, but Disney has provided a glimpse of what's in store for park guests during the maiden run of this new event: Anna and Elsa's Royal Welcome - Daily, at 11:00 AM, Anna and Elsa will make their way down Hollywood Boulevard in a horse-drawn carriage (complete with their chilly entourage) to the Sorcerer's Hat Stage for an official welcome to park guests. For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration - The Premiere Theater sets the stage for Anna, Elsa, and the Royal Historians of Arendelle in this musical, storytelling re-creation of their famous tale. "Coolest Summer Ever" Dance Party - As the day melts away, the music will play! This DJ-led dance party takes over at the Sorcerer's Hat Stage for a mix of frozen summer hits where all are welcome to shake out some of that energy.

Sea Rescue and The Wildlife Docs are New this Weekend!

SeaWorld?s switch to PlantBottle plastic in its refillable cups is expected to remove 35 metric tons of CO2 emissions annually -- the equivalent of saving more than 80 barrels of oil a year. The unique PlantBottle technology is popular packaging for Coca-Cola?s bottled beverages. SeaWorld takes this technology to a new level, creating the first commercially available consumer product: a refillable plastic cup. Since The Coca-Cola Company introduced PlantBottle technology in 2009 as the first recyclable PET plastic bottle made partially from plants, more than 450,000 barrels of oil have been saved. And, more than 20 billion PlantBottle packages have been distributed in 31 countries worldwide. "Once we fully realized the power of PlantBottle technology, we knew it had real-world, global applications well beyond our own products," said Scott Vitters, general manager, PlantBottle packaging platform, The Coca-Cola Company. "This collaboration with SeaWorld demonstrates that PlantBottle technology can be applied anywhere that PET plastic is traditionally used, but with a lighter footprint on the planet.? Colorful in-park murals and point-of-purchase displays promoting environmental advocacy will help inform park guests of the new product.

These wristbands act as your one stop shop for everything you need to do within Disney World's parks, hotels, and restaurants. Want to buy food while you're at the park? Just scan your wristband and enter a PIN. Tired of scrambling for your hotel key? Simply tap the wristband to your door. The wristband is connected to a credit card and is capable of replacing your wallet, keys, and theme park tickets throughout Disney's sprawling campus. It essentially acts as a digital ID that you wear around your wrist. The sensors within the band are also contextually aware and can detect where you are. Here's how Bajarin described one experience: But these RFID bands also had proximity features so when we were on a ride like Splash Mountain where they take a picture of you as you start the downward slide, it automatically sensed from our bands we were on the ride and that picture was automatically sent to our Disney picture site as well. Bajarin notes this mobile identity aspect could be crucial for the success of the iWatch.
