There will be kiosks near paddlefish at Disney Springs and where the old DVC kiosk used to be (near LaBrea Bakery) in Downtown Disney for guests to learn all abput the streaming service including pricing and what shows the service has to offer.

While most of Epcot is under a massive refurbishment, Mickey’s old meet and greet location is currently under construction. Mickey will have a new meet and greet location next year as part of the Disney and Pixar Short Film Festival.
The Disney and Pixar Short Film Festival is an 18 minute film festival featuring shorts from Disney and Pixar and will be in 3D so guests can really feel like they are in the Short themselves!
Are you excited about the Film Festival? Are you excited to be meeting Mickey again at Epcot? What do you think about the renovations going on at Epcot right now? Let me know in the comments below and please follow this blog for constant updates on the progress of Epcot!
Tron is rising very quickly at the Magic Kingdom and thanks to Midway Magic on Instagram I have some construction progress photos for you!
In this photo you can see that all of the track inside the showbuilding is complete and that the building is quickly rising around the track. In the foreground you can see tons of supports and launch track for the beginning of the ride.
There is a closer look at the launch track. Next up we should see Disney install the iconic swooping high banked outdoor turn and after that the track will most likely be complete. From there they just have to install the show elements and the showbuilding and the queue and then it will be ready for opening in 2021. Here is a look at what the final product will like below!

There is an early rumor that Hollywood Studios will be receiving an entirely new Fantasmic! just in time for the show’s 25th Anniversary in 2023. There are very few details on this rumor as of this time, but based on Disneyland’s Fantasmic! refurb we can have an idea of what could be coming to this new version if it is in fact coming.
Disneyland’s Fantasmic! took about one year to refurb and added a couple new scenes such as the controversial Pirates of the Caribbean scene. No idea if the same scene would come to the new Hollywood Studios version or not, but if the show is going to get a refurb then expect the show to go down sometime in 2022 for a reopening in 2023.
Do you want a Fantasmic 2.0 in Hollywood Studios or do you like the current show? What new scenes would you like? What scenes are a must keep? Let me know in the comments below!
The Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland may not be finished yet in terms of enhancements with rumors increasing swirling of something to replace Stitch’s Great Escape.
Great Escape was moved to seasonal operations last year due to declining attendance and now has apparently been fast tracked for retirement and relatively soon. Rumor has it that a Wreck it Ralph attraction will be replacing Great Escape and that this Wreck it Ralph attraction will be using some sort of Virtual Reality (VR) system.
Not much else is known about this rumor, but as soon as more details come along I will be sure to update you! Thank you for reading and if you would like to leave a donation or subscribe for exclusive content the options to do so are below and are very much appreciated!

The highly anticipated Disney Skyliner opened today at Disney World with three lines that connect portions of the southern half of the resort. The Skyliner so far connects locations like Hollywood Studios, The Caribbean Beach Resort, The Art of Animation and Pop Century Resorts, The Riviera Resort as well as Epcot.
Now some people are asking if the Skyliner will replace the Monorail and my answer to that is no. I think both transportation systems will complement each other very nicely. The Monorail covers resorts and parks in the North section of the resort while the Skyliner is starting to cover the Southern parks and resorts.
Another great thing about the Skyliner is that the gondola system is cheap and quick to build and does not take up a lot of space. It is also meant to go high which means the cables can easily go over existing buildings while providing great views for guests who are riding it. Further expansions of the Skyliner could include The Coronado Springs Resort as well as Animal Kingdom.
What do you think of the Skyliner? Do you prefer it over the Monorail? Will you be riding the Skyliner next time you are at Disney World? Let me know in the comments below! If you like this content please subscribe for constant updates and articles!
So in an effort to increase attendance at the resort Walt Disney World (WDW) resort Disney is thinking of introducing some new ticket options for the new fiscal year. I will go over each option below.
Disney World would give guests purchasing a 4 day ticket free park hopping capabilities. I think this would be a great incentive for guests coming to the resort because most guests would not come just to see 3 or fewer of the 4 parks.
Option 2 would give guests restricted hours to go to the parks. It would essentially expand the current one day noon ticket into a multi day ticket where you can only enter the parks after 12 on each day.
Option 3 is called “Long Duration Benefit/Free Days” which would give guests who purchase a 4 day theme park ticket two additional free days, so it would be 6 days for the price of 4.
All of these ticket options are a great way to increase attendance and hopefully will help out the resort. I am wondering if Disneyland will implement ways to increase attendance at that resort. Some ways I am thinking of could be unblocking more passholders for more days as well as more SoCal resident deals. A major reason for the decline in attendance seems to be Galaxy’s Edge not being as guests anticipated it to be or that guests felt like the land would be way to crowded and decided to avoid it. Another reason for the decline could be that so many new things are opening and happening in 2021 and people could be waiting until then to go and cover everything including Galaxy’s Edge.
What do you guys think of these new ticket options? Will it entice you to go to the parks? What do you guys think is the cause for the decline in attendance in the resort?
