Blizzard Beach

If you get to the top of the slides at Blizzard Beach, you get a view of the Walt Disney World property. The only thing that can be seen is any building taller than the trees. This view is toward Hollywood Studios: the Tower of Terror is in the middle of the horizon. It is very difficult to imagine you are in the middle of the “vacation capital of the world” since all you see are the tree tops!!!

La Nouba

La Nouba translates to English as “to party, to live it up,” and this theme is evident in the energetic performances, the colorful costumes and the moving live music. La Nouba features a mix of mesmerizing high wire and flying trapezes, stunning acro-gymnastic performances and other dynamic displays of coordination and strength. There is no other Cirque du Soliel show like la Nouba—so it is a one of a kind Disney experience

Did You Know?

The talking trashcan that moves around Tomorrowland is named PUSH. Push is part garbage can part audio system. Push does not have a microphone in him so the one who controls Push has to stay very close so he can hear the questions. Look for a man who has his right hand most of the time in a bag and looks as if he is biting his fingernails. That is how he can talk to the guests. He can even sing Happy Birthday!!! My kids LOVE him!!!
