It’s time for the Frog Family’s weekly roundup of Disney and Orlando theme park tidbits from the interwebs.

We love comments! Drop us a line below if you have something to share.

This week’s highlights:

  • Wedding Vow Renewals at Magic KingdomMy personal highlight of the week — beyond presenting Mommy Frog with a humongous bouquet of lilies (her favorite) — was seeing photos of the 50 couples who renewed their vows at Cinderella Castle, including one pair who had gotten engaged in Magic Kingdom 10 years ago this month.
  • Not to be outdone in the Valentine’s department, Lily surprised Tad with a hand-made Mickey Mouse card from our friend Steph at Crafting in the Rain. His response was priceless.
  • Madagascar Live! Operation: Vacation, a live-action musical starring the wild and woolly zoo animals of the super successful “Madagascar” movies, is coming to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.
  • Orlando Informer took a look at the gluten-free menu options at Mythos in Islands of Adventure, one of the best-themed restaurants of all the Orlando theme parks.
  • Chocolate tree at EpcotThe Disney Parks Blog paid homage to the glorious chocolate trees that are in bloom at the Land Pavillion inside Epcot.
  • Club Penguin has released its first music EP, following in the footsteps of World of Warcraft and Moshi Monsters.
  • Ready to run for your life? Registration opened this week for ‘The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-Miler Weekend’ coming up in October.
  • Ed Roland of Collective Soul and Taylor Dayne are headlining the Velvet Sessions in February and March respectively at Universal Orlando’s Hard Rock Hotel.
  • Street performers at Universal Mardi GrasTad brought us video from Universal’s Mardi Gras festivities, which continue on Saturdays and select nights through April.
  • In baby news, SeaWorld San Diego welcomed an orca calf, weighing in at 300-350 pounds. Despite the 18-month gestation, mommy orca Kasatka only spent an hour in labor.

That’s all for this week. Until next week, happy planning!
