Holidays are steamrolling into the parks; time for the magic of a castle decorated in snow and a parade to celebrate the season. This week’s Round-Up also has a few fun Halloween trip reports to wrap up the season too. And we're here once again with a collection of the week's most noteworthy discussions, photos and news on the Disney theme parks. Plus, we have the latest videos from Sarah and Matt, along with an update from the boys who built their very own Pizza Planet truck on MiceTube. Enjoy! ~ CakvalaSC

We recently had the opportunity too visit Disney's new Aulani resort and Spa on Oahu and found it to be amazing. What's more, we were able to work a special deal and are offering a trip to this new resort at up to 40% off the regular rate. This is going to be an affordable chance to enjoy this resort along with all of the other things Oahu has to offer. This trip will take place June 23-30, 2012, and we have locked in PHENOMENAL deals on rooms of all sizes (even ocean view!). Come feel the ocean breeze with your MiceChat friends. Take tours, luau, snorkel and experience Hawaii as you never have before.

How does Will Rogers twirl his lasso????
Audio-animatronics sure have come a long way since Disney first created them. Some of them can just down right impress you with what they can do nowadays. SparkChaser is really fascinated by the Will Roger's animatronic and wants to know how he twirls his lasso? Do you have any idea?
Walt Disney World TV loop from 2001-02
Back during the 100 Years of Magic Celebration, back 10 years ago, the hotels at the resort featured a Tour of the World. It's nostalgic if you were there and even fun if you have never seen it. Share your memories and thoughts here!

10/28: Remembering Superstar Limo Werner Weiss of Yesterland remembers one of the most unfortunate of Disney attractions, Superstar Limo at Disney's California Adventure.
