These go with the DCL ones we showed you last Saturday

Check out for more info.--Finally, we turn to the New York City World of Disney store, and rumor has it (confirmed by several WoD Cast Memembers) that the store will be closing at the end of the year...

--One final piece of food news is the Wishes Dessert Party has been extended from August 28th (original closing date) till October 31st,. 2009. I guess it proved successful enough to extend it. (When i went in July all 5 nights i was there were sold out)

--Also in WDW news, the parks have begun decorating for Halloween, many people are suprised. I am not, becasue the Halloween Parties start on September 4th, so this is late in my opinion.

--Moving to the West Coast, "Murphy" the new Maly Dragon for Disneyland's Fantasmic was tested during the day (why? i really dont know) the other day. And was the first to come with the pic of it... Check out more info about Murphy at There are many rumors (most likely fact) swirling around the internet that "Murphificant" (as the WDWNT crew and @WEDway named it) will make her offical debut on Monday. And that there has been an additional show added tonight through Thursday (making two per night), and then starting next Friday (the beginning of Labor Day weekend) through Monday there will be three showing of Fantasmic! per night.
