Disney World Employees Find Wedding Rings for Park Visitors

The Magic Kingdom earned its title yet again when a Massachusetts couple, their five year anniversary rings, and a dumpster came together.

While tidying up their villa as they prepared to leave the park late last week, Paul Campanale dumped a cardboard bowl, not knowing the container inside it held his wife Karen's engagement, wedding and five-year-anniversary rings.

Park employees warned the couple from Worcester, Mass., that recovering the jewelry was all but impossible. So on Friday, the Campanales and their two children loaded onto a Magical Express bus and headed to the airport.

Back at the Wilderness Lodge resort, executive housekeeper Drew Weaver realized that trash from the Campanales' villa hadn't reached the industrial-size compactor yet. He and seven other volunteers donned protective clothing, emptied a parking lot bin and waded through bag after bag of rubbish to find the rings. And they did.

Paul Campanale, 37, a chemist, received the good news on his cell phone and Weaver met the family to deliver the rings. Karen Campanale, 35, a teacher, said she was shocked by the find.

"That's not the first time we've gone through trash — oh, no," Weaver said. "We don't always find things. Many times we come up empty. But we didn't this time."

Travel Smart to Orlando in Recession

With the cost of fuel at all time highs and the economy showing signs of weakness, it is definitely time to travel smart. Seems as if everything around us costs more, and that makes the prospect of vacationing seems to slip further away into the distance.

Instead of disappointing the family this year use these tips to save your Orlando vacation.

Use the internet is the first tip. The internet is your friend when you know how to use it to find deals. Once you find a website you trust with a guaranteed low price like Kissimmee Guest Services, you can take comfort in knowing you saved yourself a lot of money.

Now once you've gotten your tickets to Disney World, Epcot, Universal, Sea World from the web, go on over to your social networking site like FACEBOOK or MySpace and see if they would like to accompany you to a fun Florida trip. Traveling in groups is a truly cost effective way to travel.

Ok now you've got tickets to the park, friends to come along, so you're almost there. Scramble back to your computer and find a travel discount site like Travelocity or Priceline and find the best priced tickets. TIP: best to look midweek to find the best airline deals to anywhere domestic or international.

So what would be the most efficient way to lodge a group of family and friends? We saw a neat way to house any group on Click the link below and find out how.

Orlando is for Lovers

For years the greatest love stories have come from our friends at Disney. Without Disney there would be no Prince Charming and Cinderella, Lady and the Tramp, and of course Mickey and Minnie. What better place to celebrate your love than Orlando?

Here are some specialties brought to you for your next trip to Orlando:

Disney World is a couple's dream. After a full day of rides with your someone special there is a perfect way to end the day. A couple can let the daily fireworks show rekindle the flame in their relationships at the Magic Kingdom while swaying to the soothing melodies in the distance.

Universal Orlando has so many ways to wow your mate. You'll find excitement at the
Islands of Adventure and dance to the live music at City Walk. After all that fun you can have a romantic meal at one of the many fine eateries Universal Orlando pride's itself upon.

Other sites that are best for romantic getaways include the Sea World’s Discovery Cove, and so much more. Discover more romantic ways to enjoy Orlando by calling Kissimmee Guest Services.

Disney's Hollywood Studios

On January 7, 2008 Disney’s Hollywood Studios opened their doors for the first time after shedding its MGM license. What will magic of Hollywood bring to Orlando, you ask?

Toy Story Mania arrives on set this summer. Have your 3-D glasses ready as you board your spinning craft to travel through carnival inspired virtual worlds. The ride seats up to eight passengers and records each individual’s score accumulated by firing toy cannons at virtual targets!

There’s more…

GO WILDCATS! The kids and songs of East High invite you to sing and dance along in the feature of “High school Musical 2:School’s Out!”

Look for the arrival of some new friends at Playhouse Disney this February! Starring Little Einsteins, Mickey Mouse Playhouse, and Handy Manny to name a few!

Be a part of the “Block Party Bash” deemed one of the most interactive parades in Disney history. With retro tunes, high-flying acrobatics, and trampolines there are bound to be a few surprises! Joining in the fun is more than 20 partying Disney-Pixar Film Pals to include the Incredibles, Monsters Inc., Toy Story 2, Bug’s life, and much more!

The hope is the new attractions will inspire a new view of the park as more than just a thrill seekers indulgence. But, while there is still much chatter and speculation about the future of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, I believe that this will be the year that the park makes it’s come back.
