4. Star Wars Weekends start today in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Listen to the Generation Mouse crew, and special guest Matt Hochberg, talk about them on their most recent podcast.

5. Disney Cruise Lines released exciting details about its newest ship, the Disney Fantasy, yesterday. It’s not just a clone of the Dream (which is also a fabulous ship). The Fantasy will include unique and interactive dinner entertainment, an all-new Broadway-style Aladdin stage show, a Bibbity Bobbity Boutique (that transforms into the Pirates League for Pirate Night), and an adults-only entertainment district with European themes. The Fantasy sets sail for one-week itineraries starting in 2012. A Fairytale Journeys by Dis Dads travel agent would be happy to help you book a fantastic Fantasy vacation.
