Now is the time, now is the best time, now is the best time for MiceChat! It's the MiceChat Round-Up; your weekly highlights from our discussions of Disney and theme park news around the globe. That's right, you can read about a fabulous trip to Disneyland and take a trip back in time to it in 2008. You can also go along on a beautifully photographed report from Walt Disney World and read about a new 500' Ferris wheel coming to Vegas. We also have a great Q&A session with D23's Disney Geek, Jeffrey Epstein about the upcoming D23 expo. All this plus a new MiceChatter video from Sarah, and links to all the top news and discussions of the week. - CakvalaSC

More of Darth Vader this week, A Birthday Celebration at Disneyland, and it has been nearly ten years since Pooh kicked the Country Bears out of Critter Country. Is it finally time for the Bears to return? ~ Aladdin
Happie Burffday ME! - 10/6 celebrates his Birthday at the Disneyland Resort, and has tons of photos of several recent changes around the entire resort!
Country Bear Jamboree in DCA?
More than 10 years since Pooh lead an uprising in Critter Country, and robbed the Country Bears of both their Theaters in DL. To this day, fans of the Jamboree still want to see the Bears return to the Disneyland Resort. Add your thoughts here!
Howdy, Pardners! If you are in the area check out the Orange County Fair – lots to do and to eat as well! (try the deep-fried beer-battered bacon!) This week we highlight HalloweenTime ideas, a new ‘third gate’ idea, and John Carter of… Frontierland?! Please keep posting your rumors and ideas as you never know…they might just make next week’s Round-Up! -Demigod-
John Carter in Frontierland?
MiceChatter Liquidspaceman wonders if the new John Carter of Mars movie that’s coming is a big enough hit, if it’d show up somewhere in Frontierland. Do you think that would work?
Halloween Time Expansion
Mice Chat member DisneylandMaster offers up some theme expansion ideas for HalloweenTime at Disneyland.
World of Color daytime shows
From disneyseeker comes a thought about adding a few little WoC shows during the daytime – sort of like how the Bellagio in Las Vegas does it.
Retheme of California Screamin’
Mice Chat member 999happyhaunts posts some ideas on changing how California Screamin’ looks. A name change, too! Check out the drawings after the jump!
Summer is prime trip planning time down in Florida - so this week's Round-Up has some trip questions, trip reports, and the discussions our board is known for. So, let's take a look what's going on at Walt Disney World. ~yoyoflamingo
Trip Report: July 18-21
You might remember Yackerz from his trip planning questions on the forum. Well, the time has come and he shares with us his trip report from the Wilderness Lodge. See if all our advice paid off!
Has Spontaneity at WDW gone the way of the Dinosaurs?
An interesting topic that has appeared every once in a while on the boards: is there any spontaneity left at the Vacation Kingdom? With the dining plan, FastPass, and more crowds than ever is there any way to keep spontaneity alive?
Are there any specific places you can meet Aurora, Belle in her blue and white villager outfit, and/or Wendy from Peter Pan? Share your character knowledge here and help make PrincessAurora18's vacation dreams come true.
Last D23 Expo? Homan feels like D23 isn't getting any bigger and is now contemplating whether this year will be the last Expo. So, what do you think are there more Expos in the future or could this be the last?
Some odd, new threads have appeared in our Main Lounge, but the thread you must check out is the first one out the gate! ~ Trekkie Dad
MiceChat Nights of Horror - full listing of events
These events are hugely popular with Mice Chatters, and our own Fishbulb starts this thread with the granddaddy of them all. This is a thread you will want to watch as dates and ticket prices are announced.
8/1: Dateline Disneyland - Matterhorn and Dinosaur Refurbs, DCA Construction
Despite the huge summer crowds surging through the gates, it was a slow news week around the Disneyland Resort. Nevertheless, construction continues throughout Disney California Adventure as the park readied to open its new temporary main entrance detour as heavy construction ramps up in the park's new Buena Vista Street entry complex.

Now go inside the DVC Ko Olina Resort on Oahu
