It’s good news time! DIS Con, a HUGE Disney fan convention happening this fall at Disney’s Coronado Springs, has added four new celebrities to the lineup, and we’re so excited to spread the word!
If you’re a hardcore EPCOT fan (count me in that category), the park’s classic walkaround Dreamfinder, Ron Schneider, is back this year to share stories from his time as the park’s iconic character. P.s. he’s the nicest guy. Don’t miss this chance to meet him.
Is The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror a favorite attraction of yours? Mark Silverman, narrator of the attraction à la Rod Serling, has joined the list of DIS Con panelists. I personally can’t wait to hear the behind-the-scenes stories of his performance.
If you’re a Fuller House fan, you’re going to want to know that Michael Campion, who plays Jackson Fuller on the show, will be in attendance at DIS Con. Cue me heading to Netflix to binge Fuller House...
Last (and certainly not least), Ike Eisenmann of Escape from Witch Mountain, will be joining the DIS Con fun. Eisenmann played Tony Malone in the 1975 film, and also appeared in Return from Witch Mountain and Race to Witch Mountain. But me? I’d love to ask him about 1982’s Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Think he has any stories about working with Shatner? We can only hope.
DIS Con will take place on September 30th and October 1st, 2022, to benefit Give Kids the World Village in Kissimmee. Give Kids the World is the largest wish granting organization in the Central Florida area for critically ill children and their families.

And if you’re someone who loves a good party in the Disney parks, we’ll also be having an After Hours Party in EPCOT on the park’s 40th Anniversary from 10:30pm (10/1) to 12:30am (10/2)! Tickets for the party are $199, with $80 of every ticket being a direct donation to the Village. You can purchase After Hours Party tickets here.
Deni loves all things Disney, and, in 2013, moved to the Magic from Maryland. Walt Disney World is her happy place, and she loves getting to share it with others. Deni and her husband of almost 26 years have 2 grown children. Her favorite WDW snack? A Mickey Bar, of course. Is there any other?!
