January is usually one of the slowest times of the year at Disney World, but there’s still plenty of  Disney news going around:

The Disney Blog has a few thoughts on the arrival of Legoland to Central Florida and the possible impact it may have on Disney World.
Theme Park mom talks about rides for the under-five crowd at Hollywood Studios.  I think DHS is a hugely underrated park for small kids.  Don’t forget all the great shows while you’re there.

The Disney Food Blog on the iconic Disney World funnel cake.  I stand firmly behind my contention that the funnel cake is a vegetable.

It’s award show season and Disney Geek Dad has come up with his own, very funny list of awards for Disney Podcasters.  Go check it out; you might find a new podcast to listen to.

Progress City has a great collection of drawings from the proposed Fantasyland expansion.

Even Central Florida gets cold during the winter.  The World According to Bruce is thinking about Disney fireplaces at the resorts.

WDW News Today has some interesting new photos of refurbishments around the Magic Kingdom, including Splash Mountain.  If you’ve ever wanted to see the moat around Cinderella Castle being cleaned, this post is for you.

Finally, go check out Jack over at the AllEars blog writing about Spaceship Earth. Great history and photographs.

Happy Monday!
