Timely news stories and events are here and not necessarily on the Orlandowise.com website pages because they are usually one time events like a concert at an Orlando location.

Restaurant reviews and attractions reviews by our staff or freelance reviewer(s) usually have a website page that have a link to that page and brief description posted on this blog.

While there are a lot of pages on this website about Disney, we devote the mentions here on this blog to those that have an interest of the collectibles and those that have an interest in the DIS stock.

"Disney Doesn't Discount..." Have you been told this? Well, see SOME of the Disney Discounts here...!

Disney Discounts for Spring 2013

Orlando, FL (Orlandowise.com) January 7, 2014 | Orlandowise :

"Disney Doesn't Discount..." Have you been told this?
Well, here are SOME of the Disney Discounts...

Well, if Disney did NOT actually discount that would make the tickets that are sold on Orlandowise.com among the most competitive available! Yet, since Disney DOES discount – Well, let's just say Disney knows what they are doing and how to hit the market with that! – I respect that, (I do not fear it, seeing someone that knows that they are doing is a pleasure to watch – I consider it growing my knowledge instead of growing my current revenue! We see no reason to lie to you or anyone else for that matter!!!)

So, do you really want to buy your Orlando tickets and such from someone that told you “Disney Doesn't Discount”?

Orlando, FL (Orlandowise.com) December 7, 2013 | Orlandowise :
This is the day that, 2 months ago I asked[edited]:
“On Dec 7 (only one month after the earnings report) look back to the stock price of today, and see if you "wished" that you'd bought it TODAY = 65.30.”

71.46[edited] - 65.30 = 6.16 – $6.16 gain for every share that you owned in a 2 month time frame (all tax free until you sell the stock)!6.16 / 65.3 = 9.4% gain in just 2 months!

Did you act on October 7 or 8 and buy the stock and now you are $6.16/share[edited] richer OR are you now wishing that you did! OR neither!

I repeat my October 6 statement, “I do not know how to go back in time and start owning the stock back then! I only know how to buy it now and wait! Yet, no new “wish list” now.

Casey's Corner, Jim Omohundro Celebrates 30 Years at Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom

Casey's Corner Chicago Dog

Orlando, FL (Orlandowise.com) November 28, 2013 | Orlandowise :

Actually the Chili Cheese Dog is my favorite
the Chicago Dog is more in theme with Casey's Corner.

But, no meal at Casey's Corner is complete without Jim Omohundro's show, the “Rinky Tink” (rickey-tick) piano. Jim, if they are eager, includes Guest, especially children in his show, with usually a 'one note' debut! Then after that number, he puts them in the spotlight (usually a good photo op for their parents)!

Jim has lots of returning friends and he meets and greets all of them.
When I arrive we generally acknowledge each other while I fade into the background.
After his show we often talk for a few moments! Jim, originally part time seasonal in Disneyland, California, is the top reason that I choose Casey's Corner to eat.
