    Magic Kingdom Fireworks Expected to Resume in July

    Disney has been quietly testing fireworks at Magic Kingdom. Assuming 1st dose vaccination rates keep going up and case rates keep going down in Florida, the goal is for nightly fireworks to return to the Magic Kingdom by July. This seems to be very achievable. Shows could resume before then, but...

The last day for Employee (Cast & Imagineer) temperature checks will be on May 7th and May 15th will be the last day checking the temperatures of Guests. This is most likely in response to Orange County...

    News 5G Cellular Service Installation Under Way at WDW

    It appears that new 5G cellular towers are popping up all over Walt Disney World. So far they are mostly being installed at the resorts first, but certainly more to come. 5G works best with direct line of sight to your device, and the towers are very short (only 10-30 feet tall in most cases)...

    Rumor Muppets to Take Over The Hall of Presidents

    Well, it looks like the cat is about to be unleashed. The Muppets will be taking over The Hall of Presidents. From what I understand, the Muppets will have mostly a narrative role in the show, with the basic principle of the show remaining in tact. The Muppets just posted a cryptic message on...

    Rumor 40% Capacity Soon? What if I Told You That We’re Already There

    My sources are telling me that WDW has increased the park capacity from 35% to 40%. This happened on January 1st, and it was a part of the park hopping rollout. You probably will see the difference in the parks when visiting in the days ahead. Also, all parks now allow same-day reservations...

    Staggs is Back?

    Tom Staggs was recently (as in the last couple weeks) sighted at Walt Disney World wearing a Disney name tag and greeting cast members. He was surrounded by other executives. Has anyone seen him lately?

    Rumor Is Indiana Jones Planning an Adventure to Disney's Animal Kingdom?

    Hello everyone, it has been quite a while, but I'm back once again. This time I'm hearing lots of rumors from multiple sources about Indiana Jones coming to Disney's Animal Kingdom. The most extreme of them include all of Dinoland USA being replaced with an Indiana Jones themed land. This would...

    News WDW Resorts to add fees for parking

    Well, I know it's been a while, but now I'm back with some new news. I wish I could say it was good news, but I don't know how to see this as anything but bad. WDW, by leadership of Bob Chapek, is planning to start charging resort fees and parking fees at all WDW resorts. They should begin as...

    News Disney Not Renewing Great Movie Ride Sponsorship Deal with TCM ; Attraction to Close

    I've heard from a very reliable source inside Turner that The Great Movie Ride Sponsorship Deal (Only a 3 year contract was signed) is not up for renewal. This was not a TCM Decision, it was Disney's. Evidently they have plans for a new attraction to take the location. The current ride will be...

    Ellen's voice is back in the ride... but her animatronic is probably gone for good.

    So, after riding Universe of Energy yesterday, I can tell you that it looks like they made a decision to re-work the "ellen vs. snake-like-creature" sequence permanently. They decided to edit the audio so Ellen is just heard and not seen in that sequence, and the snake-like-creature has been...

    I don't think the new building at DHS is a theater after all...

    Okay, so I've been doing some digging, looking at plans, and speaking to sources. Here's what I've been led to believe: It's becoming more and more apparent that the new building going up near Tower of Terror isn't going to be a theater at all. It is a black box venue... but only temporarily...

    I have received word that the new Pandora store-within-a-store has opened inside the Magic Kingdom inside Uptown Jewelers. Anyone have photos?

    More Wrapped Buses

    On a recent visit to WDW I have noticed a vastly increased number of wrapped Disney buses driving around the resort. No photos from me because I was driving, but I was curious if anyone else has noticed the same thing. Agent Carter was on the most recent wrap I saw.

    Some little things at the MK

    So, I was in the Magic Kingdom this last week. Besides basically not riding any major attractions (Though I did get on Seven Dwarfs' Mine Train since it only had a 20min wait around 12:50am), I did notice some new details that haven't been brought up on here. First, the main middle railing is...

    Updates for the New Year

    Hi Everyone. It has a been a while since I've had anything fun and interesting to share, recently I've mostly been limiting my posts to single comments about topics posted here and there. But I wanted to let you know that I'm not completely silent and out of the loop. I've been quietly reading...

    Epcot almost sunk. (Part of it)

    I heard something interesting a few days ago. Evidently all the construction going on near the back of Club Cool wasn't planned. A construction worker that was taking down the Butterfly Garden Structure was digging and hit a major water line. The entire area was flooded and almost became a...

    Gravity Wheel Not Turning at Mission: SPACE

    I noticed the other day that the giant gravity wheel isn't turning at Mission: SPACE. Being that it's essentially the only major element in that queue, it's a bit troubling. Anyone know how long it has been this way? Any plans to fix it?

    Curtains Missing and No One Seems to Care?

    I'm sure people may have noticed, but I've found that major curtains that are essential to the story transitions from small screens to wide screens are missing at Ellen's Energy Adventure and Mickey's Philharmagic. I also noticed that the curtains at the American Adventure are terribly out of...

    Well, the prep work has finally started to appear for the new direct access ramp off of I-4 Westbound. The ramp will actually begin on the current Epcot Center Drive exit ramp and take it between the back of the Team Disney Building and the Typhoon Lagoon parking lot, crossing Buena Vista Drive...
