Take Flights To Italy To Attend The Grand Pistoia Blues Festival 2010 In Italy! Even though Christmas is more than 7 months away, and is one of the furthest things from most Long Islanders" minds, but this cold and dreary weather this week has me thinking of happier times while wearing a sweater... FUNKFEST festival wristbands 2012 will hit the city of Orlando to bring back Old School R&B, Funk, Old School Hip-Hop, Blues, Jazz and comedy. It will be in 2 day festival this coming March 30 and 31, 2012at precisely 5:00 in the afternoon, until 10:00 pm. The gates will be opened as early as 3:00 pm. This will be held at its best fitting venue, the historic stadium of Tinker Field. Mickey"s very Merry Christmas Party is a great way for you and your family to have a unique experience in Walt Disney World while celebrating Christmas. The park is open only to those guests who purchase the party tickets. There is a bit of a jam entering the park since it is only open 7pm-12am, but you can enter as early as 4pm with your party tickets to avoid the rush. We received event wristbands upon entering the two times my family attended the party and then the entire Magic Kingdom is open for your enjoyment. If you are going for the rides then you will luck out because there is no wait for majority of the rides once the party begins depending on the date of your party. At any date, your wait should not exceed 15 minutes for any given ride.
