An updated map was installed by Disney for the start to EPCOT’s International Flower and Garden Festival. In this new map you can see that the France expansion has been added and that includes the Ratatouille ride as well as the new courtyard and crepery.

This year’s Flower and Garden Festival runs through June 1st and since these new expansions are on the map it is highly likely that the area before the Festival ends. On May 26th Spaceship Earth will be going under an extensive two year refurb and opening the expanded France pavilion could be a great way to supplement that closure.

Fastpass Coming to Monsters Inc. and Autopia at the Disneyland Resort

Wow… so this is one of the negative effects of Maxpass in my opinion. In order to capitalize on the profitability of Maxpass, Disney is now adding attractions to the lineup that do not need it whatsoever.

For those of you that are Disneyland Resort regulars, you know that Autopia and Monsters Inc. rarely ever have a line long enough to warrant a Fastpass. In fact the addition of Fastpass to these two attractions will increase their lines significantly. Disney has not announced when these rides will be added to the lineup, just saying they will be coming soon.

What do you think of these new additions to the Fastpass lineup? As you can tell I am not in favor of them at all, but let me know your thoughts down below and follow this blog for constant theme park updates!

Flight of Passage Evacuated Due to a Reported Fire

Guests at Disney’s Animal Kingdom were evacuated from Flight of Passage earlier today because of a reported fire. About three hours ago guests went to Twitter to say that the attraction had caught on fire.

Turns out the fire alarm just had an issue and it was a false alarm thank goodness. It must have been scary for guests mid ride to be abruptly evacuated due to the reported fire. Apparently, ever since this ride opened two years ago there have been issues with the fire alarm.

Have you ever been evacuated from an attraction for any reason? Were you excited or was it a dream come true to finally be evacuated from a Disney attraction? Comment your answers down below!

Cedar Point Has Set Their 2020 Announcement Date for December 19th

Right after Knott’s Berry Farm announced their new 2020 attraction, Cedar Point teased a new 2020 addition of their own. Cedar Point has said that on December 19th they will announce this mystery new attraction.

I have some thoughts on what this attraction may be based on what we can observe at the park right now. I can tell you this will not be a roller coaster as there have been no permits filed with the city and construction has not begun anywhere in the park for this new addition.

It could be a partnership with Triotech in bringing a new or refurbished/rethemed dark ride to the park, which I think would be a great addition to this park full of coasters. Cedar Point could also be partnering with Triotech to add animatronics to their river rapids ride as well. What do you think it will be? What do you want Cedar Point to get next?
