Let’s face it. Everyone has been lost at Walt Disney World or Disneyland Resort at least once. These are huge places and they can certainly be overwhelming for first time visitors. I’m the “tour guide” whenever I take my family to the parks. In fact I came to realize that they weren’t paying much attention of how to get everywhere and really relied on me for that! Well now Disney has made getting around the parks and Walt Disney World a little bit easier. An update is coming to the My Disney Experience app that will feature navigation. Hit the jump for more details on what’s to come.
So the big nighttime spectacular for Disney’s Animal Kingdom, a park that until now has never been open at night, debuted this past week. Jungle Book: Alive With Magic shows off the new Jungle Book movie on the lake near Everest in Animal Kingdom. Now, this is not Rivers of Light that was first announced to be the show in Animal Kingdom. Jungle Book: Alive With Magic is here for a limited time and I would think of it has a precursor to the more permanent Rivers of Light. Hit the jump to hear some reactions of the new show.
There’s probably one question that I get asked more than anything else. That question is “What’s your favorite, or best, attraction at [INSERT PARK NAME HERE]?” This question is very subjective but there are certain attractions that I must experience every time I’m at Walt Disney World in Florida. Since this seems to be a popular question I decided it would be a good idea to put my answer here on the site! Check out my full list after the jump!
The holiday season is one of the best times of the year to visit Walt Disney World. There’s nothing quite like strolling along Main Street USA with Christmas music playing in the background (and it might even be snowing!!). I count the holiday season at Disney World as something everyone should experience at least once in their lives (every year would be even better!). Each of the parks has its own holiday traditions & decor. Hit the jump to see how you could be spending the holidays at Walt Disney World.
Over the last few days Disney has updated rules for it’s US parks and installed metal detectors outside the entrance to each park. It’s unknown if these changes are permanent or just for the holidays since the week after Christmas is the busiest time of the year at both Disney World & Disneyland Resort. Hit the jump for details on the new security procedures and what to expect for your next visit to the parks.
Disney’s biggest event, the D23 Expo is starting soon! The expo is a huge draw for Disney fans. Star Wars stole the show last year and this year big park news is expected to be announced. We’ll be covering the expo here, so make sure to stop by August 14-16 for the latest news about the parks. Hit the jump for more about what’s expected to be announced.
Construction for the highly anticipated “Pandora: The Land of Avatar” or Avatar Land in Disney’s Animal Kingdom can now been seen from within the park. Avatar Land is expected to house several attractions, restaurants and retail shops. Disney is working closely with James Cameron on the development of Avatar Land. Pandora: The Land of Avatar is expected to open in early 2017.
