'Spring Forward - Fall Back'.

:: Soarin News: Starting up 'Beta Testers Group' ::

As you've last recall, we've announced the 'LIVE' page over at Themagical for our upcoming simulation 'Soarin'. 

If you haven't, here's the direct link to it: 

Right now, we are taking requests for being part of our 'beta testers group'.  We've made a post about the new requirements that you must follow in order to participate the testing.

We do this periodically so others who haven't got a chance to test the latest simulation project can get there chance.

Soarin...The sky is the limit!

© Disney  |    ©

Hey There Friends!

As today marks 2 years in current development of the 'upcoming simulation' for

It's been a long progress of building and coding this simulation from the 'blue sky phase > research  concept design > development > internal testing ...' .

We are still at 'internal testing' due to the previous status from our simulation developer Josh Stauffer who's been very busy working on this project. 

Quick recap to Josh's post in September 30, 2013: 

  "It's been a while since the last update on Soarin', so here is the latest. It's been slow progress due to lack of time over the summer and some challenging puzzles in the code. The toughest parts have now been solved though, and I'm very near firing up the complete new peep engine that I've been working on for months. I'll be sure to update when that happens!" - Josh Stauffer September 30, 2013 via Themagical's Facebook Group Page.

As we prepare for the upcoming simulation, we've made the page 'LIVE' so you can get ready to play once we announce the launch. 

Just to remind you that we've haven't released a 'beta version' for our 'beta testers' quite yet.  We have to enter that phase before we feel its ready for the public.

We appreciate your support and patience as we are eager to release this new simulation.  Make sure you keep your eyes peeled at our social feeds, this blog, and Facebook pages / Group Page for the latest updates!

You can take a sneak peek at the page here: 

Until Then,

October is here, Soarin Updates, Happy Halloween!

© Disney

Hello everybody!

We hope you are having a great month of October this season! Ahhh *inhales the fresh crisp Autumn air* the fall season is already in full force as summer is now completely gone from our memories. But most of you have been or having been enjoying fall festive treats like pumpkin pie, apple pie, apple cider, pumpkin roll danish, etc...

As you may know by now that our local and amusement parks are in the process of closing the 2013 season. But that shouldn't make you wait for the summer when you can still get ready for the next season by following up with them through their newsletters, youtube channels, twitter, blogs, etc....


:: Soarin Updates ::

Here's the latest updates on 'Themagical's Upcoming First Of It's Kind HTML 5 Simulation: 

  "It's been a while since the last update on Soarin', so here is the latest. It's been slow progress due to lack of time over the summer and some challenging puzzles in the code.

:: Halloween 'Trick Or Treat' Tips & Safety Reminders ::

Here's some helpful tips that you should keep in mind when you do trick or treating:

bullet Children should always go out trick or treating accompanied by a responsible adult. If you have a group of kids going, the parents should choose two or three of them to go along and keep an eye on things.

bulletSome towns set a curfew for trick or treating which makes it easier for townsfolk to know who's coming to their door. Make sure and stick to the curfew times and stick to subdivisions and areas with a lot of homes so your kids can get in as much trick or treating as possible in a few hours time.

bulletPlan a safe route so parents know where their older kids will be at all times. Set a time for their return home. Make sure that your child is old enough and responsible enough to go out by themselves. Make sure that they have a cell phone. 

bulletLet your children know not to cut through back alleys and fields if they are out alone. Make sure they know to stay in populated areas and not to go off the beaten track. Let them know to stay in well lighted areas with lots of people around. Explain to them why it can be dangerous for kids not to do this. If they are going out alone, they are old enough to know what can happen to them in a bad situation and how to stop it from happening.
bullet Instruct your children not to eat any treats until they bring them home to be examined by you. This way you can check for any problem candy and get the pick of the best stuff!

bullet Make sure your child carries a flashlight, glow stick or has reflective tape on their costume to make them more visible to cars.

bullet Let them know that they should stay together as a group if going out to Trick or Treat without an adult.

*Tips source from:


Well, we hope you have a safe "Halloween" trick or treating. Please be safe and careful where you go trick or treating this season.

Even if you don't observe the holiday season, its good to keep in mind to be safe and careful who you get candy from and as well make sure an adult double checks your candy to see if some candy or deserts are in question. Always a good rule of thumb. ;)

Until Then,

© Disney  |   ©

Back To School: Summer is almost over

Hey Friends!

It's that time again where schools are getting back into session (or already have in several states in the United States). 

We hope your summer went well and enjoying the hot summer days too!

As the summer season is coming to a close, fall is just around the corner.  Officially right after Labor Day (September 2) is the sign where schools start the new school year.

We hope you have a great school year and getting ready for the fall season too!

Until Then,

Hey Friends!

As you pretty much know about the above image. "JOBS" .  For those who aren't aware of this new released movie (starting today in the U.S.) what this movie is about. 

::Short Summary::

Starring Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs, and tracing the Apple co-founder's career from his early years in that Palo Alto garage to his rise as one of the computing industry's most admired innovators. By focusing on the key moments that drove Jobs' success and the conversations that made him such a controversial figure among critics, Sternand screenwriter Matt Whiteley present an intimate portrait of a driven, deeply complex man who dedicated his life to revolutionizing the way we use computers. 1)

Rated: PG-13 **For Drug Reference and Brief Strong Language 

============(Notice: The embed videos isn't enabled for mobile users. Sorry!)
First Video Link (Official Trailer):

Second Video Link (Chris Prillio Review):


::Personal Take::

From the preview trailer, I can take some notes that this is a small tidbits of things that 'Steve Jobs' did in his early years of life. Now, as those who followed 'Steve Jobs' career know that the filmmakers missed a lot of important events.  One example is when 'Steve Jobs' acquired Pixar in 1986 but in the movie its not even mentioned.

Why should you watch this movie, you've asked?  Well, I think its important how 'Steve Jobs' not only was a world changer in the technology aspect but how he was involved with Pixar by which today is the largest grossed CGI animation studio to date!

Steve helped created the booming technology that many thought it wouldn't happen or if it did would only loose its buzz in the end.  He helped in the early 90's & mid 90's bring back the personal computer to a new re-fresh twisted and re-invented the personal computer. 

We all know by that revamped made Apple become the largest grossed company in the world and as well still booming in the creativity of technology products that is changing on how we use it in our daily lives.

::Closing Thoughts::

I recommend watching this movie.  For myself, I will be watching and as well admiring how people help change the world through the medium of the personal computer and technology. 

But as well how Steve Jobs helped the company Pixar become the largest CGI animation studio that we all love to this date.

For any Disney & Apple fan (and Apple user), should watch this movie!

Until then, 


Saturday, August 10, 2013 server transfer...UPDATE!

Hi folks! will switch to a new server within a month. This means that the site will be transfered from a Windows to a Linux server, and that means we will put the website in a read-only mode and login disabled (UPDATED: Themagical's website is now running fully. You can now sign in with your account. 08/16/13), so the site can be transfered to the new hardware and the DNS can be adapted.

I will keep you up to date about the coming changes.

Thanks for understanding.

Fall is approaching soon!

Hey There Friends!

I hope you are enjoying the remainder of your summer vacation break!   I think a few of our readers have already gone back to school already since in the United States is different times when students return back to school.

There is still time to enjoy the summer activities at some local amusement parks since they still operate in the fall/winter times.  

We hope you had a great time this summer as the team is 'preparing' for a beta launch *coming this fall with Soarin.   

Again, this is only *'forward-looking statements', which is prescribed as statements of upcoming projects, that may or may not come to past due to lack of free time, software glitches/bugs/crashes, data losses, delayed launch, etc...

We are looking forward on releasing more details on when we'll be doing 'beta' on Soarin as we get closer to finishing up coding cleaning up /performance tweaks.

Enjoy the rest of your summer! We'll talk more about Soarin this fall!

Until then,

Saving Mr Banks: A MUST SEE

© Disney
Hey Friends!

Here's a movie that's 'A MUST SEE' for all Disney fans and fans of Walt Disney's Mary Poppins movie.

Here's the telling of the untold story how Walt Disney was able to get the rights from the author who wrote 'Mary Poppins'.  

Not only getting the rights but as well a very picky and demanding author who wanted to keep the integrity of the story about the real life person 'Mary Poppins' that impacted the author's life.

It will be releasing this Christmas 2013 !  If you haven't seen the trailer, I would recommend watching it!

Summer is Here Officially & Holiday July 4!

Hey There Friends!

It's been awhile since there's been new postings, thank you for your patience for waiting for new content.

::Summer is HERE!::

So since schools are now out of sessions and most of you guys and gals are now enjoying your summer break before going back to school in August/September months.

I'm just as excited and anxious to start the summer time to enjoy the beaches, camping, amusement parks, plus so much more! What are you excited about the summer time? Do you like the summer or prefer another season?

::Happy 4th of July"::

For those outside the country readers, Independence Day (July 4th) honors the birthday of the United States of America and the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. It's a day of picnics and patriotic parades, a night of concerts and fireworks, and a reason to fly the American flag.

Not only that but its the History where here in America we bare the freedom of independence as the founder fathers of our great nation wrote down so that all of those living in past, present and future can enjoy this.

::Closing Thoughts::

Hope you have a safe summer! Be safe and be sure to wear a lot SFP ( Sun Factor Protection ) while in the hot summer sun.

Until Then,

Soarin News, Mystery Sim, Help Needed....OH MY!

© Themagical  |  © Disney

Hey There Friends! 

Hope you are doing well since its been another quiet news on my end.  But in this posting we have a few things to cover, so without further ado....


::Soarin News::

Recently over at our 'Facebook Group Page' for Themagical, one of our community member asked about 'Any Updates'?

Josh has been working behind the scenes development for quite some time since our last talked on Facebook chat.

Here's what he had to say about the progress of the Soarin Simulation:

"I've been making lots of progress on Soarin' recently, but don't have any interesting milestones to report on yet. I'm just as excited to get this finished as you all are to play it!"

Source:  (Themagical's Facebook Group Page)


::Mystery Simulation::

The new simulation is slated for Q4 (4th quarter: October, November, December), as we are getting closer to release Soarin Simulation. 

Our beta testers will be getting hands-on once we feel its 'beta-ready' quality to be tested.  We feel this is a nice move from the 'stand-by mode' on Test Track Simulation due to the trip of our webmaster visited with his family this year. 


::Help Needed::

First of all, we want to 'thank you' for your continual support at Themagical website/blog.  It sounds dumb to mention it over and over again but its necessary how much we really appreciate our fans & community members. 

We really can't do this without your help and we are greatly appreciate you by spreading the word about our simulation creations through word of mouth, website blogs, social media, etc....

Things aren't cheap and keeping a website running online is expensive. By you clicking on the graphical ad-placement on our website & blog, is helping us keep the site running, paying hosting, and as well investing into better software in order to bring a more enjoyable online experience.

By your help, we are keeping the magic alive and hopefully making better simulations from the outcome.  I'd say that's a nice deal, right?


::Closing Thoughts::

As summer rolls around the corner, we want you to be safe and have a great summer vacation.  We are hoping to release more news about Soarin and revealing the opportunity to help us out to beta test it. 

Keep up on the latest updates here!

Until Then,

Moore, Oklahoma: Thoughts, Prayers and Donations

Yesterday (05/20/2013), a terrible tornado struck the town of Moore, Oklahoma (just south of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma).  The death toll as of right now is about 24, 9 are children. An neighborhood is destroyed and those who are alive are gathering whatever is left of their belongings from their homes.

( Image © KFOR-TV | © WFMZ.COM )

The tornado that touchdown was an EF-5, winds up to 200 MPH. As you can see an image above of the actual tornado hitting Moore, Oklahoma.  The chart below shows the old "F" scale to compare to the new "EF" scale of how bad this tornado was. 

( Image © WFMZ.COM )

Though I've only lived 3 year there, I still call this my 'second home'. I know many of you see this on TV and act like 'glad I'm not there'. I know the feeling of going through not one but 3 tornados within the years I was there for college. It's something I'll never forget and the experience it something of itself. 

My heartaches for the lives lost and those of who made it out alive but their homes are gone.  I ask for those to keep your thoughts for the people there and prayers. Even if you want to donate can help out the people there. I know the people there will 'thank you' for whatever support you do.

:: Donations ::

You can support by sending your donations to the "American Red Cross" for the Oklahoma City Shelter. All proceeds will be going to those in Moore, Oklahoma.  

Click here to send any mount that you can. 

Or  you  may  also  text the word AID, followed by a space and the amount to 28950
