First Look at WestJet’s Sorcerer Mickey Disney #MagicPlane

westjet magic plane disneyWestJet and Walt Disney Parks & Resorts (Canada) today pulled back the curtain on their most exciting adventure yet — a custom-painted Boeing Next-Generation 737-800 series aircraft featuring Mickey Mouse in his most famous role, Sorcerer Mickey.

WestJet and Walt Disney Parks & Resorts (Canada) first forged a relationship in 2004 based on a shared vision of creating memorable experiences for their guests. Known in the social media world as the #MagicPlane, the aircraft will perform its inaugural flight on December 3, 2013, from Calgary to Orlando, Florida, home of Walt Disney World Resort. Following the flight, the Magic Plane will fly throughout WestJet’s domestic, trans-border and international network.

Fun facts about the Magic Plane:

  • The two sides of the aircraft are mirror images of each other in all aspects but one. We’ll leave it to our guests to decide what that is!
  • There are a total of 36 different paint colours on the aircraft.
  • It took a team of 26 people 24 days working around the clock to paint the Magic Plane.
  • The painting crew consumed more than 150 doughnuts over the 24 days.
  • The painting crew consisted of people from four countries, five states, two provinces and 12 cities.
  • The cookies that will be served on board are a special treat in the shape of Disney characters.
  • Over the next five years, the Magic Plane will fly more than 400,000 guests a total of nearly eight million kilometres.

On board the Magic Plane’s inaugural flight on December 3 will be 16 members of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada from various cities across the country. Along with club chaperones and WestJet volunteers, the group will travel to Orlando for three days of fun at Walt Disney World Resort, “pay-it-forward” charity activities, team building and leadership training.

WestJet serves Orlando, home of Walt Disney World Resort, with a total of 39 flights per week during peak winter months from Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Hamilton, London, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Halifax, Moncton and St. John’s, Nfld.

Gaylord Palms ICE! Featuring Frosty the Snowman – With a Giveaway!

2013 ICE gaylord palms resort orlandoThe 2013 ICE! Display at Gaylord Palms Resort in Orlando has captured my heart even more than any previous year.  For a moment, I felt like I had stepped back in time and become part of one of the most nostalgic Christmas movie of my childhood. Each year as a child, I would tune in to watch “Frosty the Snowman” in front of the television and the tradition continued with my own child which makes this year’s display even more moving.

Follow along as this classic tale unfolds room by room inside ICE! at Gaylord Palms…

Frosty the Snowman was a jolly happy soul. With a corn cob pipe and a button nose and two eyes made out of coal.

2013 ICE Gaylord Palms Frosty the SnowmanFrosty the Snowman is a fairy tale they say. He was made of snow, but the children know, how he came to life one day.

2013 ICE Gaylord Palms Frosty the SnowmanThere must have been some magic in that old silk hat they found. For when they placed it on his head he began to dance around.

2013 ICE Gaylord Palms Frosty the SnowmanFrosty the snowman was alive as he could be. And the children say he could laugh and play just the same as you and me.

Thumpetty thump thump, thumpety thump thump. Look at Frosty go. Thumpetty thump thump, thumpety thump thump. Over the hills of snow.
