But now there’s one more place for you to go grab that margarita at the end of a LONG day on your feet in The Most Magical Place on Earth, and it’s over at Disney World’s BoardWalk.
Today, as we were walking past Splash Mountain in Magic Kingdom we noticed that things looked a bit different. Instead of floating around like usual, the boats were actually being evacuated! Ever wonder what an evacuation looks like on Splash Mountain? We’re sharing it all with you here!
Ever wanted to remember a SUPER special moment in Disney World?
That’s where Disney’s Capture Your Moment service comes in! This experience is a professional photoshoot with a PhotoPass photographer, intended to recognize special occasions like birthdays, engagements, adoptions, graduations, and SO much more. Previously, you had to call Disney to book this service. But now, Disney’s made it way easier on ya!
Disney World has changed their face mask policy a few times over the last few months.
Recently, Disney announced a BIG change in its mask policy when it comes to photos. Previously, guests had to keep on their masks at all times (except when actively eating and drinking while stationary and physically distanced from others) — and that meant that masks had to be kept on while taking photos. Disney just made a change to that policy when it comes to outdoor photos and today we got to experience it in action.
Did you know Disney dabbles in community-building?
Most recently, Disney has been at work developing Flamingo Crossings Town Center, a community that will include shopping, dining, and housing. And in the past, they’ve developed both the Celebration and Golden Oak communities in the area. But now, it seems like the company’s looking ahead, as they are in talks to build yet another mixed-use community.
And while some of this merchandise is relatively inexpensive or pretty “typical” in terms of price, today we found some new items that are QUITE expensive. Would you pay OVER $200 for Disney’s latest merch?
There’s one Disney World theme park that’s a little bit harder to get to than others.
Since the theme parks reopened last July, the Disney Park Pass theme park reservation system has been implemented to help keep the parks at limited capacity. It has been notoriously difficult to get into Disney’s Hollywood Studios and now it could be OVER TWO MONTHS until some guests can get in.
Earlier this year, Disney announced that it would be making some changes to Disney World and Disneyland’s classic ride — the Jungle Cruise.
As part of the refurbishments/retheme, the rides will get a new storyline, a skipper animatronic will be featured IN the ride itself, and more changes will be made. And, today we found that one of this ride’s signature characters was totally GONE!
ICYMI: a train is currently in the works that will connect the Orlando International Airport to Disney World!
It’s part of Brightline’s high-speed rail service, which is currently in development and will also travel to Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and more. Although the train was originally targeting a 2023 opening date, it has been delayed to 2026. And now, we have an update on an alternate path for the train through Orlando.
