Disney used to produce weird movies, create weird plots, craft weird food and of course create weird Disney attractions. Truthfully most of Disney’s past is weird. Human sized talking mice, singing tiki birds, banjo-playing bears, politically correct non-sexually assaulting pirates, this stuff is just bizarre.

The media tells me that Rogue One is the Star Wars prequel fans have been dreaming about since 1977.

Stitch’s Great Escape (formerly Alien Encounter) at Magic Kingdom showcased secret technology to teleport an alien named Skippy. Here’s how.
The show building now known as Stitch’s Great Escape has seen a lot of changes over the years, but through it all, one thing has remained constant: Stinky chili dogs.
