Why? Oh, just because October 1st happens to mark a teeny, tiny event in Disney history (sarcasm heavily implied) — it’s the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World! October 1st will have it all — 2 new fireworks shows, a new ride, a new restaurant, new EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival booths, and MORE! Want to try and tackle it ALL in 1 day? We’re breaking down our suggested plan for any of you out there brave enough to try it! [Read more…]
We’re just days away from the 4th of July and we’ve already seen a number of themed snacks arrive in Disney World.
We’ve had a stand-out treat at Beaches & Cream, and a 4th of July cupcake at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. Today we spotted a classic snack in Disney’s Hollywood Studios that has received a bit of a makeover just in time for the 4th!
QUICK! Name Disney World’s glitziest theme park!
If you said Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you got it in one! We’ve made a few visits to this v. popular park over the last few days and now we’re bringing you an update on everything NEW in food, construction, and merchandise!
Although guests can visit the quick-service Ronto Roasters or Docking Bay 7, one of the most unique experiences in the land is at Oga’s Cantina (which is one of he HARDEST reservations to get in all of Disney World). If you’ve been wanting to visit the Star Wars drink spot but haven’t been able to score a reservation yet, now’s your chance!
With the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary celebrations approaching quickly, we’ve been seeing a lot of preparations and changes underway!
Fireworks have returned to Magic Kingdom and EPCOT, Cinderella Castle has already gotten a royal makeover, and there are even more rides, restaurants, and shops to come when October 1st kicks off. But, even with all the exciting things announced for the 18-month long part-ay, some Disney-goers are wondering when perks like FastPass+ and Extra Magic Hours (or its upcoming replacement — Early Theme Park Entry) will come back. And, if you’re one of those folks, we’ve got a brand new update for you!
Any Disney merchandise can be great but we especially love some Tower of Terror merch!
The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is an ICONIC attraction in Disney World and the spooky vibes make for some very cool merchandise. Whether we’re buying water bottles with a bellhop hat lid, color-revealing mugs, or Hollywood Tower Hotel leggings; we dig repping the Hollywood Tower Hotel. And now, a fan-favorite Tower of Terror souvenir has RETURNED!
Welcome to Hollywood Studios, friends!
We go to the parks alllll the time to check out what’s new or different so we can keep you updated! And we have a TON of new merch to tell you about from our last trips to Hollywood Studios, so let’s get started!
But, the truth is you just never know what you’ll find in Disney World and that’s largely due to the people who make the true magic in the parks — the Cast Members! The special experiences that Cast Members create in Disney World can be totally unexpected and absolutely fantastic. Today, we spotted some Cast Members making magic in a surprising and TOTALLY adorable way! And it served as an important reminder that you’ve ALWAYS got to be paying attention to the little things when you’re in the parks!
Since Disney World reopened last summer, pre-shows were removed from rides as a safety precaution.
Since the reopening, many pre-shows have been unavailable. But as restrictions have been changing around Disney, we’ve started to see the return of some pre-shows! Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster featuring Aerosmith had the band back in the recording studio, Haunted Mansion’s room is stretching again, and Dinosaur saw the return of Dr. Seeker. And now, we found another awesome pre-show reopen in Disney’s Hollywood Studios and so is a missing animatronic!
Disney World crowd levels have certainly changed over the past few months.
With changes to capacity limitations and the continued use of the Disney Park Pass theme park reservation system, we’ve been keeping a close eye on the number of people in the Disney World parks. Well, today we noticed a SURPRISING crowd level in Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
