We recently unveiled new technology at our Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings Showcase this past Saturday- and I couldn’t wait to share it with you! A wedding cake is probably the most significant confection you’ll ever eat (and buy) – so why not turn it into a living piece of art? With imagery that scrolls over icing like a mini movie, Walt Disney World Resort wedding cakes can now be transformed with fully customizable image mapping projection technology. Whether you want to showcase a photo slideshow, home video or your favorite quote fondant is refashioned into an enchanted canvas that is sure to impress. But don’t take it from me, check out the video below and see for yourself.

Just when you thought we couldn’t work Disney’s hit animated film “Frozen” into ONE MORE blog post, we are excited to announce the addition of Jonathan Groff to the lineup of celebrity narrators for the 2014 Candlelight Processional at Epcot.
Groff, who voices the character of Kristoff in Disney’s “Frozen,” is also a Tony-nominated veteran of the Broadway stage (“Spring Awakening”) and TV (“Glee”).
This year’s event will also have a little “Scandal” with everyone’s favorite Gladiator Papa Pope Joe Morton, who plays Kerry Washington’s secret-agent-father on Scandal. Morton’s career has spanned more than 40 years with hits on Broadway, TV and in film.
Groff and Morton join an illustrious list of celebrity narrators for this year’s event including newcomers Ana Gasteyer and returning favorites like Whoopi Goldberg and Neil Patrick Harris. They will be just part of the Holidays Around the World celebration at Epcot, the Candlelight Processional is one of the most beloved holiday traditions at Epcot – a joyous retelling of the Christmas story by a celebrity narrator accompanied by a 50-piece orchestra and a glorious mass choir.
