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!

David Blaine is an American magician, illusionist and endurance artist. He is best known for his high-profile feats of endurance, and has made his name as a performer of street and close-up magic. He has performed all over the world and has set and broken several world records.
On May 19, 1997, Blaine’s first television special, David Blaine: Street Magic aired on then NBC. According to the New York Daily News: “Blaine can lay claim to his own brand of wizardry. The magic he offers in tonight’s show operates on an uncommonly personal level. When asked about his performance style, David explained, “I’d like to bring magic back to the place it used to be 100 years ago. Time magazine commented, “his deceptively low-key, ultracool manner leaves spectators more amazed than if he’d razzle-dazzled. The concept of focusing on spectator reactions changed the way that magic has been shown on television. The New York Times wrote: “He’s taken a craft that’s been around for hundreds of years and done something unique and fresh with it.
Blaine starred in a 90-minute ABC television special, “David Blaine: Real or Magic”, on November 19, 2013. The special was directed by Emmy Award winning director Matthew Akers and featured Blaine performing magic for his favorite celebrities and public figures including Woody Allen, Robert De Niro, George W. Bush, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Harrison Ford, Kanye West, Jamie Foxx, Ricky Gervais, Woody Harrelson, Stephen Hawking, Lenny Kravitz, Macklemore, Olivia Wilde, Katy Perry, Michael Phelps, Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith, Jon Stewart, Psy, Emmy Rossum and Jason Sudeikis.
Marlon “Magic Man” Starling was a two-time US world champion boxer.
Starling was born in Hartford, CT in 1959. He turned professional in 1979. After 25 straight wins, he lost his first fight. He lost a 12 round decision to Donald Curry in 1982. Starling had a rematch with Curry in 1984, challenging for the WBA and IBF welterweight titles. Starling lost by a 15 round decision.
Starling’s second world title fight came in 1987. He knocked out Mark Breland in the 11th round to win the WBA welterweight title. In his third title defense, Starling lost the title in controversial fashion to Tomas Molinares. Molinares hit Starling with a punch that was clearly thrown after the bell. Starling went down for the only time in his career, and the referee counted him out. Molinares was declared the new champion by knock out. However, the decision was later changed to a no contest but the Colombian kept the title.
In 1989, Starling knocked out Lloyd Honeyghan to win the WBC welterweight titles. The following year, Starling challenged Michael Nunn for the IBF middleweight title, but lost by decision. In his next fight, Starling lost his welterweight titles on a close decision to Maurice Blocker. That was Starling’s last fight. He retired with a record of 45-6-1-1 (27 KOs).
Paul “Paulie” Malignaggi is an Italian American professional boxer. He is a former IBF Light Welterweight Champion and the current WBA Welterweight Champion.

He also had a small role in the movie Undefeated featuring John Leguizamo, and had a feature documentary on his life leading into his fight with Miguel Cotto titled “Magic Man,” which later aired on Showtime.
Japanese video game company Nintendo used him as the model for their character Little Mac in the new sequel Punch-Out!! for the Wii, and also featured him in the commercials as well. Malignaggi is a featured fighter in EA Sports’ Fight Night Round 4 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Malignaggi is set to defend his WBA Welterweight title against undefeated two time world champion, former WBO Super Featherweight champion and current WBC Lightweight champion, Adrien Broner on June 22, 2013 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Ocean Cay is founded on a deep commitment to ecological principles that shape everything from how the venues are built and how the island is run, to the kinds of activities featured on the island.
Formerly a sand extraction site, MSC Cruises has made significant efforts to clear the island and the surrounding ocean bed from all discarded debris – while removing a total of 7,500 tons of scrap metal – and relocating coral with the longer-term vision of encouraging coral to grow and repopulate.
These efforts will give guests the opportunity to learn about the protection of the oceans and the importance of preserving coral reefs through dedicated edutainment programs.
It was truly a great experience for 7 days, it was our first cruise ever, and I am glad we had the honor of cruising on MSC Meraviglia, so much to do and see while you are on the cruise.
We went to all the shows at The Broadway Theatre, with seeing all six shows, which included 2 magic shows, Broadway show, disco show and much more.
The Food was excellent, foods from all over the world were served on different days, so you are not eating the same food each day, included, Italian, Indian, Chinese, Spanish, Caribbean and many more countries. Food is Kosher and Halal. Breakfast was great you can sit in a restaurant and enjoy waiter service at no cost or you can go to the breakfast at the buffet and enjoy varieties of breakfast.
Dinner in the night again you can sign up for one of the restaurants, where you get table service by waiters who work in the restaurant from all over the world. We had great waiters taking care of us, and asking us over and over again if we need anything else, they did this on all seven days as we ate in the same restaurant, food is served very fast, from appetizers, to entrée and desserts. Food was fresh daily and you can eat buffet up to 1am in the morning. You can leave a tip if you like which I think is necessary, but not mandatory.
We enjoyed attending shows at 6 days while we were on the cruise, The Broadway Theatre, which holds close to 1000 Thousand people and was packed each night, the shows are unusually forty-five minutes each. You can take a drink in the theatre as you watch the show.
There was a 2 Broadway shows, a live entertainment by a Canadian singer titled from the stage to screen. Then there were two magic shows, card tricks, mentalist and an illusionist.
The entertainers and singers perform in 4 of the six shows, and also the lady dancers were also host’s helping out with Magicians shows.
I would have liked to see a different cast every night not the same group over and over again. With that said, the entertainment was average in my opinion.
There were many outdoor pools, Jacuzzi’s which you can swim or relax throughout the day. There was no line or waiting period you were able to find something immediately or just jump in with a stranger which did not mind.
There were many activities for Baby’s Kids and young adults, gaming rooms, Computer rooms, daycare centers, while the parents are enjoying a night out, there is all kinds of activities for kids while they are being cared by one of the staff members.
The was dancing every night starting at 10-45 pm till 2am in the morning, at the promenade, with a live DJ and live entertainment bands, music from all over the world. I enjoyed Bollywood dancing and Bob Marley Tribute. There is local bars and waitress’s coming around serving cocktails, soft drinks, Ice cream and chocolate stores are close by if you want to take a break from dancing and indulge in a dessert you like.
We had a pleasure of speaking to master Chocolatier Albert Fabian Sim, who works for jean philippe, world renowned Chocolatier, you would be able to see exclusive interview with him in our Video below.
We stopped by Nassau capital of Bahamas, visited the Atlantis Resort, Cabbage beach and different locations throughout Nassau. We were not able to do too much because of the weather.
We were not able to go to Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve, because of a storm and was instead diverted to Miami in Florida, I was really interested in visiting. But we had to be safe, maybe will get another opportunity next time.
One an average I would recommend this cruise, for couples or a family as there is so many things to do, eat and enjoy.
