Returning to the Magic – A Review of Walt Disney World September 2020

Since reopening in July, many guests have made their way back to Walt Disney World to a new kind of magic.

Exploring a new destination, new world or new Galaxy and immersing yourself in the culture of its citizens is an immensely rewarding experience. But it can be even more rewarding if we take care to observe the customs of the places we visit. And visiting Batuu is no different:  the locals are essentially hosting you on their home Planet! Here are 5 pointers that I picked up on my recent travels to the Black Spire Outpost on the planet of Batuu! First of all, the people of Batuu are Batuuans and they speak Batuuese.  It sounds very similar to English; [...]
