More and more attractions have undergone plexiglass makeovers, both in ride queues and on the rides themselves. And the latest attraction to experience a plexiglass-addition is Pirates of the Caribbean in Magic Kingdom!
We’ve really been enjoying Baby Yoda and the second season of The Mandalorian, as well as all the interesting animals on Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom. And we LOVED The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special! And there’s even more amazing stuff to watch next month in December! [Read more…]
There’s a common theme in many of Disney’s movies, and that’s the concept of family.
From the idea of “Ohana” in Lilo & Stitch to Elsa and Anna’s relationship in Frozen, Disney gets family. And although the upcoming Disney+ movie Safety is disguising itself as a sports movie, at its heart, it looks like it’s about brotherly love.
If you’ve ever been a Cast Member, perhaps spoken to a Cast Member, or even taken a backstage tour at Disney World, like the Keys to the Kingdom Tour, you may have heard about Disney’s four keys to a great guest experience — Safety, Courtesy, Show, and Efficiency.
For decades, these keys have served as guiding principles behind Disney’s guest service.
We’ve seen Walt Disney World make a lot of changes in an effort to keep its guests as safe as possible. From requiring all guests to wear masks in its theme parks, to keeping things extra-clean and sanitized, a lot of changes have been made around the parks.
But it’s not just the theme parks that are working to keeping guests safe. Walt Disney World is also taking extra measures at its golf courses. Fore!
Disney released guidelines set by the CDC for acceptable forms of face-coverings that are required for entry. One policy is that that masks should “be secured with ties or ear loops.” This caused some confusion as Neck Gaiters, a popular face covering that slips over your mouth and nose, don’t have earloops and are not secured with ties.

We’ve come to the end of Walt Disney World’s historic closure, and wow, what a roller coaster ride it’s been (and we’re not talking the fun kind).
Disney World’s theme parks have reopened after a 4-month closure with some significant changes, but many people are relieved to see any semblance of normalcy return, even if the parks look a little bit different than we remember. And yet, we’re wary. Could a closure like this happen again? As much as we’d like to say no, it’s a little more complicated than that. Take a look.
Earlier this week, we reported the National Basketball Players Association and NBA had finalized their plans to finish their 2019-2020 season at Disney World’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.
But despite having all of their terms agreed to by Disney as well as the NBA executives and athletes, worry seems to be looming over the resumptive games.
Disney Springs is set to have a phased re-opening of its third-party stores and restaurants on May 20th with Disney-owned locations following on May 27th.
Ever since the parks first closed, we have been trying to imagine the impact the closures will have on a powerhouse like Disney.
We’ve seen execs taking pay cuts, Cast Members being furloughed, the company taking on new debt, and even purchasing a new parcel of land. To those of us on the outside, it appears as though Disney has been thoughtfully planning their moves not only to protect themselves financially but to ensure a future for the parks we love. Former Disney CEO, Bob Iger, spoke to how the latest events have impacted the company’s vision moving forward in a recent interview with Barron’s.
