Disney’s Resorts Orlando Florida-2017

On its vast 47sq mile property (one-and-half-times territory of Manhattan island in NYC!), WDW constructed as many as 23 themed resorts, operating today under its brand name. The original Contemporary and Polynesian resorts have blossomed from their introductory $13/night pricing to some $1000/night in highly demanded school break weeks! The grandeur of Grand Floridian tops them all, marble and all: its lobby orchestra, its gigantic hand-crafted bird cage, the reputed Faberge eggs we observed this Easter season and the ceiling-high Xmas tree at year’s end, the magnificent Wedding pavilion, the glam restauranteurs…And then the timeless ingenuity of the craftsmen of the gigantic Wilderness Lodge, seemingly erected yesterday 40+ years later – although one struggles to spot a single nail within its seven-story authentic wooden majesty!

We thoroughly enjoyed exclusive “pirate boat” rides along the natural Bay Lake – all the way between the Magic Kingdom and the Wilderness Campground, with its Saloon-styled dinner shows and the Perscheron champion horses. 2400lb of a horse!

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Orlando Florida-2017

AK is a wholly zoological theme park, and is the largest theme park in the world (580 acres)! When conceived, AK was to focus on three broad classifications of animals: those that exist in today’s reality; those that did exist but are now extinct (dinosaurs); and those that only exist in the realm of fantasy! AK opened on Earth Day April 22, 1998, and is the newest completed WDW park themed entirely around the natural environment and animal conservation, a philosophy pioneered by Walt Disney. AK is accredited by the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums, in that it has met or exceeded the standards in education, conservation, and research. AK’s symbol is the Tree of Life. AK hosts10m+ visitors annually, the fourth-most visited amusement park in the US, right behind the other three WDW parks! AK is divided into six themed areas, notably Discovery Island, Africa, Asia, DinoLand U.S.A.  From parking, or off the Disney bus, enter Rainforest Café prior to entering The Oasis (main entrance), whosepaths lead deeper in AK via Discovery Island. This is the center of the park, in the middle of the Discovery River waterway, the central hub connecting the other sections of the park.

The Tree of Life, the park’s sculpted, man-made 145-foot-tall 50-foot-wide Baobab tree, is surrounded by trails and animal enclosures. Beneath it lies It’s Tough to Be a Bug!, a wonderful 4D experience based on the 1998 Disney· Pixar  film “A Bug’s Life”.

Disney’s Magic Kingdom Orlando Florida-2017

On April 11th 2017, World Liberty TV were guests of the Walt Disney World’s (WDW) oldest (Magic Kingdom- MK) and newest (Animal Kingdom- AK) parks.

Built in 1971, MK is the world’s most visited theme park in the world. Current attendance is 20m+ every year, and rising! MK was built on a man-made hill, allowing Cast Members (CMs) and VIP guests to move unseen via underground tunnels. MK is comprised of six Lands: Main Street U.S.A, AdventureLand, FrontierLand, Liberty Square, TomorrowLand and FrontierLand.

Guests initially reach park entrance via a huge ferry, small pirate boats, 6 original monorail trains, resort shuttle buses — all of which are part of WDW’s complimentary transportation system within its vast 47sq. mile territory. Those brave enough to fight incoming (and outgoing in the evening) traffic, pay parking toll at remote gates, find a spot likely a mile away, and then await for the long golf-style trains to carry them toward security check-in and turnstyles (do yourself a favor: go green and use Disney Transportation instead!)…Once inside MK, we traveled on its exclusive mile-and-half railroad, getting on and off in at least 3 lands!

National Puerto Rican Day Parade NYC-2024

BY: Adal Hussain, Chief Editor,  Ntl  Puerto-Rican Day Parade , 44st ,5th Ave NY, June 9th  2024.

2024 Celebration dedicated to San Germán and Puerto Rican communities of Hawaii and Special tribute to traditional Puerto Rican folkloric dance.

The Board of Directors of the National Puerto Rican Day Parade (NPRDP) made its first announcements of themes, tributes, and honorees for the 67th annual festivities. Under the 2024 theme, Boricua de Corazón, the two- week celebration of Puerto Rican culture, history, and contributions to global society culminates in its iconic procession up New York City’s Fifth Avenue on Sunday, June 9, at 11am EDT.

This year’s Parade celebration is dedicated to the municipality of San Germán, Puerto Rico and the Puerto Rican communities of Hawaii.

Affectionately known as “La Ciudad de las Lomas” (City of the Hills) and settled in 1511, San Germán is Puerto Rico’s second-oldest municipality and one of its first Spanish settlements.

Known for its colonial architecture, cobblestoned streets and rich cultural heritage, San Germán is home to over one 100 historic buildings, including the iconic Porta Coeli, a church and convent built in 1609.

With roots that date back to the late 1800s, the Puerto Rican communities of Hawaii have built a long legacy of maintaining cultural heritage while embracing their Hawaiian identity, enriching the diverse tapestry of the Hawaiian people, and contributing to local economic development.

Jovet is recognized for being Puerto Rico’s first female TV presenter, in 1968. Her illustrious, decades-long career has earned her numerous awards and accolades, including the Emmy, the José de Diego Award and an honorary Doctorate in Criminal Justice from John Jay College in New York City. Jorge Rivera Nieves, also a TV news anchor in Puerto Rico, is recognized for his award-winning career spanning almost half a century.

He received the 2021 Silver Circle award from the Suncoast Emmy Awards in recognition for excellence in journalism and contributions to the industry.

For that reason, NPRDP pays tribute to select folkloric dance groups that preserve, perform, and give energy to traditional Puerto Rican dance. These include: Areyto Ballet Folklórico Nacional de Puerto Rico, San Juan,   BombaYo, New York City, Bombazo Dance Company, New York City , Danza Fiesta, New York City,  Escuela de Bomba Tata Cepeda, Kissimmee, Florida, Pleneros de la 21, New York CityAnd Segunda Quimbamba Folkloric Center, Jersey City, NJ.

Health and Well-being of Children: Every year, the NPRDP raises awareness of a prominent cause or non-profit related to issues of importance to the Puerto Rican community. In 2024, the NPRDP recognizes the work of Fundación de Niños de Puerto Rico.

A non-profit organization in Puerto whose mission is to improve the quality-of-life of children diagnosed with cancer, malformations, or chronic diseases.

La Fundación helps families pay for medical services and treatments not covered by health insurance plans. NPRDP recognizes Fundación de Niños for their commitment for their positive impact and commitment to assisting Puerto Rico’s most vulnerable.

Under its slogan, Un Pueblo, Muchas Voces (One People, Many Voices), the NPRDP promotes Culture, Arts and Education, with special tributes to historical figures and key themes to raise awareness of critical issues and causes to our community.
