Have you ever been in any of the runDisney races in Disney World? Believe it or not, there USED to be runDisney events in Disneyland, too, but those paused back in 2017. However, Disney has announced that runDisney events will return to Disneyland!
It’s pumpkin spice season!
Yes, yes, we know it’s still REALLY hot here in Florida. But pumpkin flavors are popping up everywhere — in our pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks, in our liqueur, and even in our bath and body products. But one of our favorite pumpkin spice things has also just returned to EPCOT!
After Disney World’s historic closure and reopening two years ago, we’re still waiting on some things to return to normal at the parks.
There are still some shows that haven’t returned (yes, we’re looking at you Fantasmic!). We’re still waiting on certain restaurants to open! We’re also still waiting on the return of Minnie Vans, although Disney recently said they would return this summer. But now, we know exactly WHEN Minnie vans will be back at Disney World!
Kermit the Frog once sang, “Why are there so many songs about rainbows?” And honestly we are HERE for all the rainbow content.
We got a Rainbow Connection-inspired overlay at EPCOT for the Festival of the Arts and when Pride Month arrives every summer we get a ton of rainbow merchandise, snacks, and more. But now we’ve learned that a delicious rainbow snack is making an epic comeback!
It’s been an exciting week of announcements about new and returning entertainment at Disney World! Not only did we find out when Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade will begin, but we also got a reopening date for the Festival of Fantasy parade, which will once more feature the fire-breathing Maleficent dragon!
We even know when the new castle stage show, Mickey’s Magical Friendship Faire will debut and when the Frontierland Hoedown will return. However, a new photo shows signs that another very popular Disney World show could be set to return soon!
There’s just something amazing about classic Southern food.
We’re talking BBQ, grits, and collard greens, and we’re just getting started. Throw in a few biscuits and we’re in our Southern comfort food heaven. Now, there’s a new Chef’s Special at Disney Springs that’s got us saying, “Hey, ‘y’all!”
Things are slowly beginning to get back to “normal” at Disney World.
We’ve seen the end of many of the resort’s health and safety guidelines, the return of summer crowds, the return of entertainment, the return of fireworks, and the return of ride pre-shows. We’ve also seen the company announce the return of in-person runDisney events AND the return of the Disney College Program.
If you’ve ever made a huge merchandise purchase at a store in a Disney theme park and then had to lug it all around the park throughout the rest of the day, you know how annoying that can be! But hey, when you gotta get that new merch, you gotta get that new merch!
Prior to the park closures, you could have items held for you at the front of the park or sent to your Disney World hotel (so you wouldn’t have to carry them around). When the parks reopened, however, these types of package pickup and delivery were suspended. Disney’s Animal Kingdom tested a modified merchandise holding system earlier this year, but now package pickup could be returning!
Coffee lovers, BEWARE!
It’s almost that time of year when the leaves start to fall off the trees and the smell of delicious PSL fills the AIR!
Something very strange is happening at EPCOT right now!
Some of our favorite items that weren’t on the menu when Taste of EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival first began on July 15th have strangely returned! For instance, back by popular demand, you can now get the Italian Margarita at Italy’s booth and now another fan-favorite item has just popped up in Japan!
