It seems like less than a week before, I was in Disneyland checking out new areas of ‘Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two,’ but here I found myself once more in the presence of Junction Point director and driving force Warren Spector at a press-only event at New York Comic-Con. This time, however, we were also joined by Peter David, who penned the graphic novels for both games, as well as a lustrous career writing comics, particularly for Marvel.

img_4115

I must start by making two startling confessions: first, despite being an avid fan of ‘Project Runway,’ I never really understood equating fun with fashion; second, up until last night, I don’t believe I have ever stepped foot inside a Target store (only because where I live makes it particularly difficult). Both of these errors of my ways were corrected last night, however, as I managed to find my way to the clothing departments of a Target just a couple of hours away.

Fortunately for us, Josh Siegel (@Crushinat0r) was on hand to capture some of the newly installed magic (literally speaking) and share it with us.

Magic Kingdom to Offer FASTPASS to Meet Mickey Mouse Beginning Spring 2011

Concept art for new Mickey Mouse meet and greetMagic Kingdom officials have a hunch a really “hot ticket” in their realm this summer is going to be something other than a ride, a snack or a show. Rather, it’s a first-ever opportunity to nail down a time to meet with Mickey Mouse.

When meet-and-greets with Mickey move into a permanent new location in Town Square later this spring, Magic Kingdom guests will be able obtain a Disney’s FASTPASS ticket specifying a one-hour window when they can return to see the popular character for hugs, photos and autographs — without waiting in the standby queue. It will mark the first time the complimentary, computerized service has been available for a character meet-and-greet at any Disney Park.
