    News Disney launches Discover Disney Ticket starting at $59 per day for summer 2024

    Two tiered system - out of state pays ridiculous park entry while FLA residents get more than 50% off. These discounts should be for the people staying at resorts. They are the ones supporting the local economy. Would likely fill resorts again like they did pre pandemic, when they treated Disney...

    Disney Genie and Genie+ at Walt Disney World

    Why does Disney offer a discounted rate for FLA residents? Was this an agreement made pre 1971 when D received tax $ to build DW? In Ontario Canada, my local tourist attractions don’t have an elevated price hike for tourists. I wonder how many parks outside of FLA do this. Can recall if Hershey...

    Disney unveils deliciously themed 2024 Merch: Disney Eats and Stitch Snack Collections

    If the Stitch merch and pillow are made in partnership with Squishmallows, they will be a hit!

    Hyundai teams up with Walt Disney Imagineering for special IONIQ 5 Disney100 Platinum electric car

    I’ll stick to my Disney antenna foam balls. That’s as close to a Disney themed car as I can afford.

    News Early close for Disney’s Hollywood Studios on December 10, 2023

    Double dipping again. If parks are closing early for a private event, ticket price should reflect that, or guests at HS should have free park hopping from 7pm to until close at another park to accommodate for this.

    Potential Major Hurricane Idalia Possibly to Impact Central/Northern Florida 8/29

    Send videos from the resorts and parks (if you can and if they remain open). Would like to see how bad it actually gets. CNN only reporting on coastal areas. Not sure why Disney would put employees and families at risk by keeping parks open. Yea families can stay at resorts but employees can’t...

    News Reedy Creek Improvement District and the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District

    Is this a contractual benefit or a “perk”? How does he get to take his grandchildren? For free? If this is a matter of just giving out tickets when requested, DW is like an open bar for employees where taxpayers foot the bill. The $1000 stipend restricts employees from inviting more than just...

    Scentsy and Walt Disney World are bringing a new guest experience within Fantasyland in Magic Kingdom

    Capacity issues? They use these evening themes (Halloween from July to Nov, Christmas from Nov-Jan) as a means to have 2 groups of people in the park with a 3 hr overlap. Kick the regular people out at 7pm, without a reduction in ticket price. The capacity issues/ticket prices will only get...

    News Holiday crowds at Walt Disney World theme parks 2022

    You really have to do the research and try to justify if a trip to Disney right now is worth it. Would love to know how many rides people get on today, with or without G+. As a Disfam that went annually since 2008, we have no interest with the gong show that G+, LL and the overall experiences...

    Disney Genie and Genie+ at Walt Disney World

    100%! This genie model was supposed to reduce overall wait times from the chatter a few years back and to be a better system than the free fast pass model. However, if people support it by paying for it, it will never go away. Still waiting to see wait times for the less privileged guests to...

    Disney Genie and Genie+ at Walt Disney World

    What an emotional ride for guests. This feature should not fluctuate in price from day to day. I hope the new price stays stable and reflects the fact that Iger wants to bring guests back, removing price gauging efforts my Chepak. It should be a standard. The price of food and snacks doesn’t...

    News Walt Disney World's iconic Twilight Zone Tower of Terror billboard to be permanently removed

    I’ve read all these responses. I saw ToT as an accent that drew attention to the park for families, especially kids, not as an advertisement or attraction. I can recall my kids seeing it and wondering about the ride, scared to try it but curious too. They loved seeing the structure on the way to...

    News Disney's Magical Express to end after 2021

    Agreed. We flew down and rented a car as we split our Disney stay (perk was fast passes, dining plan) with off site stay. We loved eating out at more affordable dining in the Orlando area. Parking was free then at resort and parks. Now... what is it? $25 a day at resort AND still have to pay at...

    News Frontierland Shootin' Arcade at Magic Kingdom switches to free play

    We’ve done Disney many times but never did the shootin arcade. Not sure why. But it was never busy. Very outdated for sure, seeing as arcade games now are using more realistic and modern gunfare. I never thought it fit with the Disney model, similar to the few carny games at AK Dinoland. Just...

    News Disney KiteTails coming to Disney's Animal Kingdom October 1

    It’s at least something to do while waiting with young kids who can’t go on EE. It’ll be like the monkeys in front of KRR. They are there but I don’t need to stop and stare at them foe 40 min. We often bring a towel to the parks with us, or a change of clothes for KRR, so those can be used...

    More buffets and restaurants returning to Walt Disney World including Crystal Palace and Biergarten

    Do the CM chefs serve and pass the plates along the inside of the buffet as you pick your food choices , or are people still touching the spoons and breathing over the food as they load a plate?

    News 2021 EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival

    I’ve always wondered why Disney didn’t open the showcase for a dining experience in the evening. Opportunity to bring in a paying adult crowd for dining using the Boardwalk entrance (small charge for entrance). They could’ve figured out a way to block off entrance to the ride section and use...
