If you’re spending top dollar to stay at a Disney Deluxe Resort, you want to make sure the amenities you’re paying for measure up!
To keep things tip-top and pristine at the poshest of Disney resorts, sometimes, they need a little TLC.
A major Disneyland refurbishment project has officially begun!
Back in September 2022, Disney announced that the Pacific Wharf area of Disney California Adventure park would be reimagined to become San Fransokyo, the city from Disney’s Big Hero 6. Now, we have a HUGE update about this project! [Read more…]
When planning your Disney World trip, the hardest decision you make can be where you’re going to rest your head at the end of a long park day.
From Value Resorts and Moderate Resorts to Deluxe Resorts and even campgrounds, there are so many options when it comes to Disney World Resort hotels. But, not all Disney hotel rooms are created equally — Disney Vacation Club (DVC) Villas can offer much more than just your average hotel room, and soon there will be even more DVC Villas to choose from. Now, it looks like MORE DVC Villas are going to be getting a bit of an update!
A popular ride might be closed for longer than we expected in Disney World!
Expedition Everest has been closed for refurbishment in Animal Kingdom since early January of this year, and was supposed to re-open in mid-April. We’ve seen some ride testing happening at the attraction over the past few months, but Disney hasn’t revealed an official reopening date. Now, we might be waiting even longer for the ride to return.
Guess who’s back?
Disney World rides shut down for maintenance all the time, and while we hate to see them go, sometimes these rides need a bit of upkeep to make sure they’re in perfect condition. Plus, we get to celebrate when they come back. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad fans rejoice; the iconic attraction is back!
Does anyone else dream of those warm summer months when you can chill at the pool all day? Is anyone else sick of the cold weather and snowy conditions? There aren’t very many places in the U.S. that stay warm enough for a wintertime trip to the pool, but sunny Orlando Florida is a rare (and magical) exception. Looking to hit the pool during your next trip to Disney World?
If you’re staying at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort soon, you might want to keep this news in mind!
At DFB, we love the classics, and there’s nothing more classic than the original Disney park…Disneyland! Between the two parks in Anaheim, California, there is SO much to see and do! Disneyland is full of unique attractions, characters, and even festivals! Even the attractions that eventually made their way to Disney World, like “it’s a small world,” the Haunted Mansion, and Pirates of the Caribbean are actually DIFFERENT in Disneyland!
There’s one iconic attraction that is exclusive to Disneyland, though, and we have an important update to share regarding the ride.
Heading to Disney World soon?
You’ll want to make sure you’re prepared for any of the closures that are happening inside the parks or resorts. Whether for construction, updates, or other changes, Disney World will occasionally close different attractions and other things around the parks. We’re looking around at all the refurbishments going on to see what rides and hotels will NOT be available in November. [Read more…]
We’re used to seeing construction walls around Disney World as Cast Members update attractions and areas around the parks.
Recently we’ve seen some walls come down in Disney’s Magic Kingdom, both around the Main Street Confectionery and from in front of the Country Bear Jamboree. Over in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, however, we recently saw some new walls go up around a ride that has closed forever.
UPDATE: This post was originally written in April of 2021. The refurbishment timeline has been updated. See the latest details below.
The summer will be here sooner than you know it, which means that a lot of Disney-goers will be headed for the resort pool at some point during their stay.
Disney tends to prepare for the summer pool crowds throughout the winter season, with refurbishments happening when most guests aren’t hitting the pool to cool off. In 2021, the Hippy Dippy Pool at Disney’s Pop Century Resort and the Big Blue Pool at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort got an update, along with some refurbishments at other hotels. Now Disney’s Vero Beach Resort is planning for a refurbishment of their own.
