In case you’re new to this strange saga, there’s a holiday scavenger hunt happening in EPCOT that guests can complete to win a prize. That prize keeps changing, and we’ve seen some very interesting options available to guests. But today we FINALLY found the official prize for this scavenger hunt! And it makes way more sense than any of the other prizes. [Read more…]
Did you know that there are TWO entrances to EPCOT? One way in, of course, is at the main entrance by Spaceship Earth that most guests are familiar with. The other entrance is way in the back of World Showcase called International Gateway!
Both of these entrances are available to guests each morning, so today we thought we would start our day from the back of the park!
Headed to EPCOT for some fun at the 2020 Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival?
Well, if you’re planning on entering through the International Gateway entrance (a.k.a. the “back” entrance), you may experience some issues. It appears Disney is experiencing some technical difficulties today with this back entrance to the park that is preventing guests from entering.
We’ve been hard at work in the parks scoping out all the latest news for you! First, a few things to remember…
- We have a BRAND NEW T-SHIRT LINE! If you’ve been waiting for DFB t-shirts, they’re HERE! Use Promo Code SNOWFALL for a 10% discount through December 31st!
- There are lot of BRAND NEW 2020 DISCOUNTS for Disney World Hotels and Packages, and we’ve got them all here!
- FULL Menus and EVERY SINGLE food photo is up for Disney World’s Festival of the Holidays! And be sure to check out our BEST of the Fest!
We have a lot to share with you this week, so let’s jump right in…
And, although we’ve been keeping you up-to-date on the International Gateway’s construction (next to the Skyliner station in Epcot), we’re finally taking you INSIDE the completed Guest Relations building!
It’s the day we’ve waited for — the Disney Skyliner is OFFICIALLY OPEN!
We’ve already taken to the skies previewing the newest transportation at Walt Disney World, witnessed the dedication ceremony, and answered all of your biggest questions ahead of its opening to the public, and now it’s your turn to soar over Disney World on the Skyliner!
The Disney Skyliner gondola system is a mode of free transportation at Disney World. You can take flight at Disney’s Hollywood Studios; soar to Caribbean Beach Resort, Riviera Resort, and Art of Animation and Pop Century Resorts; and touch down at EPCOT’s International Gateway.
But as with anything built for the Disney Parks, Skyliner is not without controversy or questions. So DFB is sailing into action to answer all of YOUR questions. Read on, and be sure to reach out in the comments if you’ve got a question that we didn’t answer about the Skyliner.
The Skyliner, as you’ll recall, is a gondola system at Walt Disney World that connects two theme parks and four Resort hotels. And thanks to a DFB pal, we got a chance to see it from the sky!
Disney is everchanging and evergrowing, especially with the massive transformation taking place at Epcot.
And while there are a lot of exciting changes taking place, we were wondering (and we know you are, too!) if the construction and overall transformation taking place at Epcot will affect the Food and Wine Festival this year. So, let’s take a look at a few of the changes taking place around Epcot to see how they affect the Food and Wine Festival this year. ):
When the Disney Skyliner Gondola System becomes operational for the public on September 29, 2019 (see the announcement here!), it begins a new phase of transportation (and views!) in Walt Disney World. We’ve learned a lot about the Skyliner since the system’s announcement in 2017 (like how it’s designed to keep riders cool!); but now that all the pieces are essentially in place, guests have a TON of questions before they take their first flights on the new transportation system.
We’ve got the pro tips you need to make the most of your rides on the Disney World Skyliner!
