Shop at Disney Stores and Make Money!

Featured

I wanted to share this little secret with everyone about my shopping habits. I’m a sucker for the Disney Store (go figures, right?) well, I found a way to get money back from shopping there and take advantage of using my Disney Chase rewards card, which is free btw, get a 10% discount from the rewards card if it’s a purchase of over $50, plus the rewards money from every $100 spent, and get back 3% on top of that! How?

I shop online using EBATES and I thought it was a scam or something, but I tried it out and I seriously did receive cash back. It comes in form of a check that is mailed to your address. If I were you, I’d definitely do this, it saves money when you shop at various stores, click here to register for EBATES to start earning some cash back from your shopping. I also think that if you have a credit card that gives back a certain percentage you will benefit from this as well too!

I’ve used this for other stores to like Groupon which already gives you a discount and on eBay too. Every little bit of money counts especially when it’s going towards a Disney vacation!!! HAHA! Anyways, I’d just thought I’d share this information. Thanks.

Guardians of Galaxy takes over the classic Tower of Terror !

Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, announced at San Diego Comic-Con that the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror ride at the Disney California Adventure is going to be remodeled with a Guardians of the Galaxy theme!!

The attraction is called Mission: Breakout is said to open in the summer of 2017. Tower of Terror will have its final drop in early January.

The concept for the revised theme is said that when you walk in you will be walking into a fortress-like museum run by the mysterious Collector.

The Guardians of the Galaxy have become the Collector’s latest prized possession, suspended in display cases over a vast abyss.

Rocket the raccoon escapes and plans to rescue his fellow Guardians involving the audience and the museum’s elevator.

How do you feel about the new take of “Guardians of Galaxy” on an old classic ride?

Disneyland’s New Luxury Hotel- Coming Soon

Last year, Anaheim adopted a tax incentive to encourage development of luxury hotels by allowing 70% of the Transient Occupancy Tax paid by guests for the next 20 years, well you can guess, Disney is taking advantage of it. Smart move!

Here are two concept arts on what the hotel would look like:

o8f7r7-b88729849z-120160607142828000gi7h0591-10

The hotel would be part of the Disney-owned hotels at Disneyland with Disneyland Hotel, Paradise Pier Hotel and Grand Californian Hotel.

This “flagship” hotel is a 700-room four-diamond hotel on 10 acres at 1401 Disney Drive which is at the north end of the Downtown Disney parking lot. Construction will begin in 2018 and is expected to open in 2021.

I better start saving. Is planning a trip in 2021 to far away? LOL

 

Finding Dory Raises Questions

In excitement for watching “Finding Dory”, I watched “Finding Nemo” with my 8 month old son. After watching Crush and Squirt (sea turtles) talk with Marlin and Dory, I began to wonder if sea turtles really do swim in the East Australian Current.

I had the privilege to ask Dr. Stephen Dunbar, a professor at Loma Linda University School of Medicine department of earth and biological sciences, about this topic for an article piece called “Finding sea turtles: a green sea turtle’s view“. I found out, yes, there is such a thing as the EAC, although it’s not like a vacuum tunnel as portrayed in the movie. The current is moved by trade winds that occur in the Pacific westerly and easterly plus the Coriolis Effect due to earth’s rotation.

Sadly, in reality, baby sea turtles don’t have a family to be with, instead they find their way back to the ocean by themselves. Baby sea turtles are immediately self-sufficient with no parental care and they don’t go with their siblings.

In the movie, the sea turtles are swimming together in hundreds, however, they do not do this in real life. They are individualistic creatures.

I also found out that turtles like Crush and Squirt are green sea turtles and they eat sea grass sometimes even injured lobsters, so Marlin and Dory were definitely lucky they didn’t eat them after they were injured by the jellies. Surprisingly enough, sea turtles can protect themselves from other preys by turning sideways and making themselves look bigger.

The most important question is…

Do sea turtles live to be 100 or 150 years old?

The answer is unknown because there is no possible way to find out.

So, go to Disneyland’s Turtle Talk with Crush and make sure you ask Crush questions about his sea life! It is just Toooootalllyyyyy Sweeeeeeet!

Thank You

A quick thank you to our subscribers, readers, MDC fans, and Disney fans.

It feels like forever since I last blogged or reported about anything, as many of you know, I recently had a baby- Raeden. Getting adjusted to being a full-time working mom is definitely tiring, but seeing a 1 second smile on Raeden’s face warms my heart.

Thank you for being patient with me as I slowly start to get back on the swing of things, to keep what I love going on, and I welcome any tips and advice you might have.

Let’s continue to share the magic of Disney.

Sincerely,

Jenny Favela
