Welcome, DFB Friends, to Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
Here the stars shine just a little brighter than anywhere else at Disney World, and we’ve been all over the park to see what’s new since the last time we visited.
If you’ve planned a magical vacation that you’ve been waiting months for, the last thing you want to do is get kicked out of the parks!
There are a lot of ways to break the rules in Disney World and Cast Members have seen a wide variety of “creative” ways that guests try to push the limits. But recently, there have been some new policies and procedures put in place at Disney World — meaning that there are 5 NEW ways you could get kicked out of the parks!
In recent years, especially since the parks reopened in the summer of 2020, technology has become a crucial part of the Disney World experience. From planning your vacation to checking into your hotel room to ordering food and beyond, there’s a variety of times where you’ll be relying on technology to make sure your trip is a success.
While some of us are more tech-savvy than others, there are a few specific examples of times when technology can get the best of all of us! Luckily, most of these incidents just require a little bit of planning before your vacation so you can be prepared!
When visiting Disneyland or Disney World, it’s an inevitable — and harsh — reality that some rides, restaurants, and shops could be closed at random. There’s nothing quite like that feeling of showing up to the parks to find your favorite attraction closed. We’ve all been there.
So our thoughts go out to Disneyland attendees today, especially those who were excited to try and get a boarding group for Rise of the Resistance…because we’ve got some sad news for you.
If you’re planning your first trip to Disney World, there are a lot of things you need to know!
You’ll want to learn as much about the parks as you can — from the restaurants to the rides and everything in-between. And as a first-time guest, there are a few ways that Disney tries to trick you. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with the full list so that you know what to expect!
Welcome back to Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
We’re takin’ a trip around the park to let you know everything that’s new in food, merch, and more. Let’s get started!
UPDATE: The following day, May 21st, Rise of the Resistance was up and running as usual.
To get on Rise of the Resistance, you’ll need to join a boarding group which can be difficult enough on its own. But, aside from getting a Boarding Group, technical issues and other problems can arise (just as they do with any other Disney ride) that cause Rise of the Resistance to close temporarily. And it looks like today is one of those days, as Rise of the Resistance is temporarily closed in Disney World.
A LOT has changed in Disney World lately!
On Friday, Disney announced that face masks would no longer be required in outdoor areas (with a few exceptions). We’ve seen plexiglass start to disappear on certain attractions, and some shows have reduced physical distancing, but now one of the most popular rides in all of Disney World is seeing some changes!
Here at DFB, we’ve been lucky enough to spot quite a few celebrities in the parks!
Just like us, they like to visit Disney World with their families and enjoy a little magic from time to time. Whether they’re there for work or pleasure, it can be a little challenging to spot them if you’re not looking in the right places — the parks are pretty big, and usually, these people are just trying to blend into the crowd. But don’t worry, if you’re looking to find some famous people, there are a few places where you can always find them in the Disney World parks!
