BREAKING NEWS: Chadwick Boseman Has Passed Away and I am Balling My Eyes Out!!

AP: Black Panther Actor Chadwick Boseman Dies After Cancer Battle

OH MY GOODNESS! I am so incredibly sad right now! This news came so out of left field that I am still incredibly shocked by it.

It was announced just moments ago that Chadwick Boseman, our lovely Black Panther, has passed away from colon cancer. Apparently, he was diagnosed with the cancer four years ago and has kept it quiet ever since.

Chadwick Boseman was a great actor in many great movies and of course shined and had his big break with the over one billion dollar Black Panther movie. From what I have seen on interviews with him, he seemed like a very humble and genuinely nice dude and it is such a shame that he passed so gosh darn early in his life. Please take a moment and let me know your favorite Chadwick Boseman moment below! #RIPChadwickBoseman

Mulan to be Released on Disney+ Sept. 4th For Additional Cost

Mulan Full Movie 2020 - Celebrity Tadka

It was just announced on the Disney earnings call that Disney plans to release Mulan on Disney+ Labor Day weekend, but for an additional cost. To be able to see the film you MUST be a Disney Plus subscriber but then have to pay an additional $29.99 to purchase the film.

It is a PVOD exclusive to a streaming service and I think that is a very interesting way to release movies for the time being. I wonder if other major Disney movies such as Black Widow will be doing the same thing if the situation does not improve in November? What do you think?

Knott’s Scary Farm 2020 Cancelled!

It was just announced today that Knott’s Berry Farm has decided to cancel its haunt event for 2020. There was some hope it could happen due to them doing Taste of Knotts and still erecting haunted house facades, but unfortunately that is not the case.

Six Flags is still looking to do a modified version of Fright Fest in some markets so we shall see how that goes! What do you guys think of this decision?

Peoplemover at Magic Kingdom To Get an Extensive Refurb

VIDEO: Take a 360° Ride on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority ...

Earlier this year the Tomorrowland Peoplemover was having several issues that led to multiple unexpected down times. That had caused Disney to close the attraction up until the eventual theme park closure which closed due to covid-19.

Well the theme parks have reopened, but the peoplemover is still closed and many guests have been wondering why the attraction has not been open recently. Well according to insiders, Blog Mickey, and Cast Members at the entrance of the attraction, Disney has decided to a full refurb of the attraction starting soon and lasting for nearly two months.

During this refurb Disney will replace every single LIM (Linear Induction Motor) along the track and these motors are custom made leading the ride to be down for a pretty extensive time period. At one point it was also rumored that the scenes inside the attraction were going to be updated for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary, but due to budget cuts those additions have been cancelled, so this will be a purely maintenance based refurb.

Downtown Disney Rule Updates and Restaurant Openings!

Disney today updated their face mask policy for Downtown Disney and the rest of the Disneyland Resort. Disneyland now matches Disney World with the mask restrictions that include the banning of neck gaiters and bandannas. Guests must also be stationary while eating and drinking. This avoids people walking around without their mask on and will be enforced when the parks reopen as well.

On some other news, two restaurants reopened in the shopping district with takeout and limited patio dining available. Those restaurants are Ballast Point and Tortilla Jo’s. Disney has plenty of seating set up in the AMC courtyard for guests on the West side of Downtown Disney to enjoy their food. Guests on the East side will struggle a bit with limited seating and to solve I suggest Disney set up tables in the Esplanade so guests can enjoy their meals while looking inside their favorite theme parks!

What do you guys think of the updated mask policy? What do you think of the outdoor seating situation at the district?

Hong Kong Disneyland To Temporarily Close Again After Jump In COVID 19 Cases

BREAKING: Hong Kong Disneyland to Reclose After Increase in COVID ...

Starting on July 15th Hong Kong Disneyland will close after Hong Kong is experiencing a spike in Covid 19 cases. After three straight weeks of not recording a single case, the city now has over one hundred new cases. In response, the government has tightened restrictions of gatherings limiting them to 10 people instead of the previous 50 people.

These restrictions will be in place for seven days and then will be re-evaluated, so it is possible the park will be able to open up in the next week or two. Hong Kong and China in general has excellent contact tracing and they have been able to nip any local outbreaks quickly and I expect the same for Hong Kong.

During this time, the resort hotels will still be operating on a modified schedule and adjusting their needs based on demand.

Walt Disney World Ticket Sales and Hotel Bookings Resume Tomorrow for 2020!

After an underwhelming response for existing ticket holders on the Parks Pass Reservation System, Disney has just announced that they will be resuming new ticket sales and hotel bookings starting July 9th.

There is high demand from Annual Passholders, suggesting that for potentially years to come Walt Disney World and Disneyland will have to focus on the local market as much as possible. Disneyland should have no problem with that, but Disney World may see a bit of an issue.

I also think they should only sell park hopper tickets at least in Disneyland or allow park hopping for annual passholders. What do you guys think? Let me know in the comments below!

BREAKING: Disneyland’s Reopening Delayed

Well well well, due to Gov. Newsom not giving any theme park reopening guidelines until after July 4th, Disney has released a statement saying that it is impossible for them to reopen July 17th. Downtown Disney and the hotels will reopen on schedule as they have already been approved.

I must say I am disappointed, but I can’t say I didn’t see this coming. There was tremendous pressure from the unions to delay the opening and Newsom listened to them. I just really hope everyone wears a face covering whether they like it or not and that everyone can come to an agreement to open up the parks sometime next month. This hereby “delays” Universal, Six Flags, and the other California theme park reopenings as all of the ones mentioned were preparing to reopen next week.

I will have a lot more to say in tomorrow’s livestream on my youtube channel so check it out and subscribe for all of my thoughts on that, but what do you think of this news? Let me know down below!

Downtown Disney Reveals Opening Procedures!

Downtown Disney Hours Adjusted Starting Monday Due to Coronavirus ...

Disney has gotten approval to reopen Downtown Disney on July 9th. The Grand Californian and Paradise Pier Hotels have gotten approval to reopen July 23rd.

Disney has stated that all guests visiting Downtown Disney starting July 9th will have to only enter and exit through the Simba Lot and undergo temperature checks.

Not all stores and restaurants will be open July 9th, but Ballast Point and World of Disney have confirmed reopening dates of July 9th with more announcements I am sure that will come soon.
