In Case You Missed ItIt’s certainly been a week of crazy. I know that I cried my eyes out watching live videos of Wishes last night, what about you? What are some of your favorite memories of Wishes? With all that said, I think it’s time to get to the crazy that is Disney and Universal news for this week, right?

This week, see which resort is most popular on Instagram, learn about a TV show that’s coming back, and more.

In Case You Missed It – Disney and Universal Orlando News and Rumors

This week, Disney released their quarterly earnings. They did exceeded expectations with film, TV, and theme parks, but faltered in one big area. Bob Iger shared his thoughts on Bloomberg too.

#Disneyland. It’s the most popular location according to Instagram. Do you like to share your photos of Disneyland (or Walt Disney World) via the social network? I certainly do! 

The Rivers of America at Disneyland is in the process of returning. Water is currently flowing back into the waterway! Hooray!

Want a piece of Disney history? You could have it for the right price. (Which is a hefty price tag.) What is it? It’s a map, drawn by Walt Disney himself, of Disneyland.

Have to say this was a pretty creative advertisement for Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!

American Idol is on….ABC?! What? That’s right! The show is being revived on ABC. And there could be auditions that take place at Walt Disney World. This is one I certainly didn’t see coming. (Also, now I bet they are regretting that they got rid of American Idol at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and are probably wondering how they can get it back in the park.)

Did you catch the Disney Fairy Tale Weddings special on Freeform TV? What part got you reaching for the tissues? (I may have teared up a few times.)

Beauty and the Beast, after all this time is still killing it. It’s now the highest grossing PG movie ever.

Speaking of killing it….Disney’s newest release Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 did gangbusters this past weekend. Did you see it yet? What did you think?  Also, which summer film are you most excited about?

Michael Giacchino is working on the music for The Incredibles 2. Does this make you excited?

Do you watch “Impractical Jokers“? Are you a fan of Universal? Watch Q, Murr, Sal, and Joe play pranks at the Universal theme parks.
