Shades of Green Resort, the Walt Disney World hotel reserved for members of the military, closed temporarily in March. The closure was scheduled to last until July 1st and was later postponed to July 15th.
Walt Disney World is preparing to reopen this weekend. Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom will open on July 11th with Hollywood Studios and EPCOT following closely on July 15th.
Cast Member previews gave us insight into how dining, shopping, and attractions will be handled when the theme parks have officially opened. Disney just released a short video depicting how Cast Members are preparing for the park’s official re-opening the public since the closure in March. [Read more…]

Set the kitchen timer to midnight! We just spotted an adorable new kitchen accessory that’s fit for a princess.
We were busy running around Walt Disney World during Cast Member re-opening reviews yesterday. We took note of the new mobile order process, discovered what it was like to revisit our favorite characters, and experienced what it is like to shop at Disney World. While scoping out the Emporium, we found a NEW item that is elegant enough to wear to the ball…or at least to the kitchen counter.
We recently saw a curious-looking big blue wall go up in the middle of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. (Spoiler: it was installed to isolate the visiting NBA players from Disney guests.) While taking a ride on the monorail, we noticed progress on a different Grand Floridian construction project we’ve been keeping our eyes on for a while.
When Walt Disney World announced that the theme parks would be reopening, they also shared that select experiences such as fireworks, parades, and character meet and greets would be temporarily suspended.
Although Disney has put these experiences on hold, for now, they told us that guests would STILL be able to see some of their favorite characters in new and exciting ways! TODAY, during Cast Member previews at Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, we got to see some of these new entertainment offerings for the first time EVER!
Magic Kingdom in Disney World officially reopens on July 11th. But we’re inside reporting LIVE today from Cast Member previews. We were invited by a friend, which means we can give you a sneak peek of what to expect when the parks officially reopen in just a few days.
A lot has changed…and we mean LOTS! Not only are there new health and safety procedures, but even the castle is a different color. Follow along with us as we journey through the park this week to check out what it’s like to dine, ride, and shop in Disney World.
Disney World is reopening THIS WEEKEND — but that doesn’t mean that everyone will get their chance to head back to the parks.
First of all, Disney hasn’t reopened ticket sales for 2020 dates yet, so only those currently holding valid tickets or annual passes, PLUS a Disney Park Pass reservation, are eligible to visit the parks at this time. Beyond that, there are a number of restrictions on travel for international AND domestic visitors. We’re taking a look at all of the states that have a travel advisory into or out of Florida to help you understand how that could impact your ability to visit Disney World!
