These drinks would be perfect for the bar at the Hunger Games Dinner Adventure!

The Eats

It’s finally here! The Hunger Games! I never thought I would get sucked in to a series like this, but I find myself so completely absorbed by it all, that I can’t stand myself. I mean today I read something about a Hunger Games inspired workout – a bit much,  I have to admit.  Though I am beyond excited to see the movie, I am not beyond crazy and going to the midnight showing tonight.

Instead, I may possibly just celebrate in my own way and have a Hunger Games-themed cocktail such as a Mockingjay or the sting of Tracker Jacker (we all know that isn’t good, or is it?)…  I know quite a few people that will also be excited for these fabulous concoctions to honor Panem, so without further ado… “may the odds be ever in your favor. Happy Hunger Games”

May the odds…

Got a quick image of the Coming Soon signs up at the old Dixie Stampede building. Looks like maybe we’re getting the Hunger Games Dinner Adventure after all.

I’m excited for this idea to go in the old Dixie Stampede building in Lake Buena Vista!



Immerse yourself in the world of the Hunger Games trilogy in an exciting new story line, spectacular sets, thrilling music, and a cornucopia of  surprises.

 ORLANDO, FL (May 24, 2012) – Fans of the Hunger Games will be able to immerse themselves in the world of Panem in the Hunger Games Dinner Adventure, in an all-new nighttime theatrical experience, soon to be known as the “World’s Most Action Packed Dinner Show.”  

Guests begin their adventure with a visit to  District 12, where they will witness the Reaping of the tributes for the Hunger Games. During the Reaping, guests will be able to sample classic District 12 hors-devours, including their famous baked goods including Mellark’s Bakery Goat Cheese and Apple Tarts. Previous winners of the Hunger Games will be available for photographs.

The Peacekeepers will lead the guests into the Hunger Games theater, an elaborate arena hosted by the Capitol, celebrating the spectacle of the games. The guests will be seated in Districts where they will enjoy a special menu put together by Effie Trinket, featuring the finest foods from around Panem, including Katniss’ favorite Lamb Stew with Dried Plums, salads, and a scrumptious dessert. Complimentary beer, wine, coffee or soft drinks are included during dinner, and vegetarian meals are available upon request.  

Guests will be introduced to their tributes in interviews with Caesar Flickerman himself, who will continue to narrate the Games, beginning with the spectacle of the chariot rides as the tributes enter the training center. Throughout dinner, guests dazzled, thrilled, and entertained with spectacularly choreographed swordplay, aerial artistry, dynamic duals and special effects as the heroes of Panem battle in the arena. Guests can watch the action in the arena before them or via one of the most technologically advanced centerhung video displays from Daktronics. 

Guests will be able to interact with the tributes and control the outcome of the Games by using their smartphones and other devices, voting for their favorite heroes and choosing sponsorship gifts to send into the arena to help their heroes. Over 150 guests each night will find themselves in the middle of the show as they don costumes of the finest Capitol fashions and join the action. The show ends with a spectacular, pyrotechnics-filled, audience-involving final scene with a surprise ending guaranteed to raise the roof.

The celebration of the Games victor continues in the post-show area, where guests can mingle with the heroes of the Games. And after the last performance of the evening, guests can party in the Capitol Club, included with each paid admission.  The high-energy DJ disco party features a state-of-the-art sound and special effects system and dancing to a wide variety of music.    

Guests who visit the Hunger Games Dinner Adventure earlier in the day will be able to tour the arena, and the museum where they will be able to see props and costumes from the Hunger Games film and interact with animatronic muttations, sing with musical mockingjays, and visit the Control Room for the Games. The one hour tours are free and begin at 4pm and 5:30pm, but space is limited and reservations are recommended.

Casting Wonder Woman

My friend Stepheney and I were discussing The Avengers success. We both loved the movie. And apparently DC Comics is exploring a Justice League film to get a piece of the superhero team pie. They already have a successful Batman franchise, and they’re working on yet another Superman. Ryan Reynolds is signed on for more Green Lantern films, as far as I know. So that leaves Wonder Woman and some minor characters that need some tie-in films. I personally am hoping the Wonder Twins get a chance to activate.

Stepheney said she and her friends couldn’t come up with viable actresses who could do a good job with Wonder Woman, so I wanted to do some dream casting. I’ve heard Olivia Wilde suggested, but I don’t think she has the right look. I’ve also heard fanboys squee for Olivia Munn in the role. I’ve never seen her act, though. So let’s skip the Olivias.

Here are my suggestions… Let me know what you think in the comments! Continue reading
