Disney’s Imagineering teams have multiple projects on the go at any one time. Let’s take a look at 10 new lands that are either confirmed or rumored as being on their way to the company’s theme parks.
Though FastPass+ (and the larger MyMagic+ system) has had its share of critics since it began its test phase in mid-2013, this system has been an enormous success for Walt Disney World.
Today I came across some not-so-Disneytastic news; both Disneyland and Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios are debating whether they should have the Annual Passholders be blocked out for two months due to the opening of Star Wars Land. The crowds are going to get insane, which means more of the moolah for Disney. As many of us AP Disney-Lovers know, we don’t have to pay for a new ticket when going to the Disney parks DUE to the Annual Passes. So, Disney doesn’t make that extra hundred to two-hundred bucks when entering the parks. What does that mean for the Annual Passholders? You guessed it! Annual Passholders would have to buy a regular Disney Ticket in order to enter Star Wars Land for those first two months. Lame, in my opinion.
It’s been stated that a 67-year-old man from Tennessee died after riding Star Tours at Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios. It was reported that this man had a pre-existing heart condition (as they somehow all do).
Seven years is an eternity in the entertainment business, and that’s just how long it’s been since James Cameron’s Avatar arrived on the scene and did some rather boffo box office (as in biggest box office in movie history). But a lot has changed since then, movies come and go, and the public consciousness is fleeting. Still, Cameron is pressing on with four planned sequels, and now we have more news of Disney involvement. Pandora — The World of Avatar is opening next summer at Disney’s Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World in Florida. No specific date has been announced yet.
If you want to imagine how the world will look in just a few years, once our cell phones become the keepers of both our money and identity, skip Silicon Valley and book a ticket to Orlando. Go to Disney World. Then, reserve a meal at a restaurant called Be Our Guest, using the Disney World app to order your food in advance.
Deb Wills’ preview blog features an extensive look at the new member lounge, located on the upper floor of the Imagination Pavilion. The lounge will be staffed by Disney Cast Members who can assist with vacation planning needs–from future DVC resort reservations to FastPass+ scheduling.
This week we sit down at the table and talk about all the exciting new offerings coming to Orlando this summer.
Every epic-Disney fanatic knows that Disneyland food is magic. There’s no other way to put it other than it is Magical. It’s like they put some kind of “secret ingredient” (or something else) to make it 10 times better than every other places’ food in almost the whole world. Grandma’s home-made pie is even put to shame with the splendid dining at Disneyland. However, Walt Disney World is a whole new realm when it comes to eating. Disclaimer: this is honest opinion and feedback from anonymous Disney Fans. This is not full-fact, just honest opinions from Disney-Lovers, such as yourselves.
There is a lot going on at Disney’s Hollywood Studios these days, so let’s take a look at what’s new and exciting in our very latest photo report:
Hello everyone I am doing this thread as a helpful place to keep a list of updated dates for ongoing or upcoming WDW projects. This list will be edited and updated as things are announced and completed.
La Cava Del Tequila abruptly announced via their Twitter account @cavadeltequila this afternoon that its Margarita kiosk will be closing as of today, May 31st. The kiosk is currently located in the Mexico Pavilion at Epcot’s World Showcase.
There’s been talk of a New “Millenium Falcon Ride” once Star Wars Land opens. It’s said to be a flight simulator ride (like Star Tours) that takes you on a secret mission, customized of course. There haven’t been any dates confirming when it will be open (as we can see Star Wars Land is just a big pile of dirt at the moment), but they have confirmed that the ride will exist. Not only is there talk of the Millennium Falcon ride, but there’s a First Order dark ride? No idea what is to come of that, but sounds some-what interesting, if you ask me.
Memorial Day weekend has come and gone and that means that seasonally, if not scientifically, summer has officially begun. It also means that we have officially passed the 60-day mark for our upcoming trip to Walt Disney World this summer.
I always look forward to returning to the Boardwalk Bakery to check out the latest cupcake creations!
Disney World and Disneyland have a variety of the same rides. From ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’, to ‘it’s a small world’, the family favorites can be found in both places. However, Disney World has the 2 best attractions when comparing the two parks.
The first attraction is The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train in Disney’s Magic Kingdom. This thrilling roller coaster takes you into the infamous mine where the Seven Dwarfs work all day, digging for diamonds and other precious gems. Not only do you get to experience the magical mine where “a million diamonds shine”, but the mine train you’re sitting in rocks back and forth. It’s a very exciting ride for children and adults, and if you’re lucky, you can get a Fast Pass for this amazing attraction. Just try to get this Fast Pass a month before your trip, or you’ll be stuck waiting in line for 80 minutes (and that’s not even the most you could be waiting) or refreshing you Disney ‘My Experience’ App every second to get lucky to snag one.
Slowly over the last few years, we have seen Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom undergo a radical color change as various attractions have slowly received new, more colorful paint schemes. Carousel of Progress is the latest victim of the winds of change:
