Very cool! Consider me there!!! – cantgetenuff
I think this is great for people who are into the Disney parties and especially for families. If you are not into Pirates/Princesses...then this probably isn't lighting your fire. – QTPie68

- Mickey's Magic Show Premieres at MGM Studios -

Abracadabra! It’s Disney Live! presents Mickey’s Magic Show! Mickey, Minnie and a host of Disney friends come together with magicians to perform magic from legendary Disney films right before your eyes. The presentation, is part of "Playhouse Disney in Concert," at Disney-MGM Studios. The entertainment offering is part of Magical Beginnings, a new program created to make traveling to Disney parks with preschoolers and toddlers easier than ever.

Other preschool favorites scheduled to appear throughout the seven-week series, August 13-September 30, include The Doodlebops, The Wiggles and Johnny and the Sprites.

I hope they keep doing this kind of stuff a few years from now when we start to have children.

Off Topic with ChipDale  >>

Summer’s in full swing, the kids are out of school, the graduation parties are over and we celebrated Father’s Day. It’s hard to believe that June passed us by so quickly!

What’s blooming where you live? Advnt05 (Atlanta) has Gardenias, Jasmine, vegetables and Day Lilies, Jeri Lynn (Massachusetts) has Iris, Azaleas and Rhododendrons, and ldn34 (Pennsylvania) and Tinkerfreak (Maine) both enjoyed the sweet smell of lilacs coming in through their windows.

Jamie’s Friday parties for June included the Grab a Dozen Donuts as You Leave the Office Early Party, the Happy Birthday Bret it’s Friday too Party (in honor of SgtTigger’s birthday), the Fantastic Father’s Day Festival, and the Start of Summertime Smash Bash. Thank you Jamie, Nigel and Cabana Boys™ for entertaining us each week!

If you could live anywhere, where would it be? redandfuzzy polled INTERCOTees and got some interesting responses. vizsla chose Honolulu, Hawaii, RAIDER: “Room Service for the rest of my life at the Sandals Atlantis resort in the BAHAMAS”, MsMin – a house on the beach near Destin, aprilisis – Olympic Peninsula on Puget Sound, goofy89 and AvonleaCF – a penthouse overlooking Central Park, and murphy1 picked Tuscany, Italy or Santa Barbara. So, where would you choose to live?

Congratulations to all of our INTERCOT graduates! Rosanne (BS, St John’s University), Sticky Mickey (8th Grade), Mickey052501 (Masters degree), Lacy (Masters degree, Georgia Tech), snowflakegirl (Masters of Science and Sixth Year Certificate, University of Hartford), Bethanymouse (double Masters, Montclair State University), White Rose (High School), and Disney_nut (High School).

Dining Out with MickeysGirl and Nigel  >>

Hello, and welcome to another yummy edition of Dining Out! Welcome to Morocco. Country of mystery, of enchantment, and the finest food this side of World Showcase Lagoon! Now, we know what you're thinking: you want me to eat where? Relax, we tried it, and we loved it! We can't believe we waited this long to try it out. There's delicious food, belly dancers, wonderful wines. Did we mention belly dancers?

Marrakesh is open for lunch and dinner. Lunch, served from 12pm until 3:45pm, features several dishes offering couscous. There's chicken couscous, lamb couscous & vegetable couscous -- can you tell we love saying couscous? Try it with us: couscous! See? Fun, eh? Lemon chicken, chicken kabobs, and roast lamb are also available. Prices range between $14 to $20 per person.

Dinner is served from 4:00pm until park closing. Most of the lunch items are available, as well as a Moroccan Feast (soup, rolls, lemon chicken, beef shish kabob & pastries). Dinner prices go from $17 per person to $27.

Several Moroccan wines are also available, which were really exquisite, as well as other drinks and desserts. Kids can choose from grilled chicken breast, hamburgers & vegetable couscous. And let’s not forget the entertainment. Plenty of music is to be had within a very regal atmosphere. Excellent service makes for a great experience and then there is always the belly dancers (Nigel really likes the belly dancers…).

The Disney's Dining Experience card as well as the Magic Your Way with Dining Plan are accepted at Marrakesh. Though we were able to snag a very unexpected Dining Reservation on our last trip (just about 30 minutes out), this hidden treasure isn’t always so open, so Advanced Dining Reservations are recommended (407-WDW-DINE).

So hop on your magic carpet and head over to Marrakesh, we know you'll be glad you did! It's an exciting experience that's not to be missed! You might even catch a glimpse of Aladdin, Jasmine or the Genie on your way to dinner! Hop on by and enjoy an Arabian Night!

Hey, is that a lamp over there?

<< Conclusion>>

And that wraps it up for this edition of the Insider as well. We’ll be invading your inbox next month as well, with more great tips, advice and opportunities to make the most out of your Walt Disney World vacation. ‘Til then, see you on the discussion boards!
