Disney Releases Adult Coloring App “Color by Disney”

Taking a cue from the adult coloring book craze, Disney has launched a mobile app, Color by Disney, which allows users to color in templates featuring Disney characters or scenes from their movies. The app currently has hundreds of designs available for coloring.

The app is being marketed toward adults, as coloring has been thought to reduce stress. Features on the app allow you to choose which design you want, your pen type, and colors. Since it is from Disney, it differs from other coloring apps by including color palettes reminiscent of the films and more importantly, the option to add pixie dust! It plays pleasant music in the background, which also sets it apart from other apps.

If you like your work, you can share it on social media or save to your own device.

Download the app for free on the Apple Store, Google Play Store, or Windows App Store. To get unlimited access to the Disney art, there is a subscription service with three different packages – one week for $2.99, one month for $7.99, or one year for $39.99.

Well worth the price, if you ask us…

Magic Kingdom Cabana Rentals Ending

Disney World’s Magic Kingdom cabana rentals are ending in February 2017.

We were never a fan of the cabanas; it may have been worth the extra $500-700/day (yes, you’re reading that right!) if there had been Air Conditioning in the cabanas!

Disney World implemented the unsightly cabanas in 2016 as an add-on item to gain more revenue from existing park guests.

Good riddance!
