If you had plans to go fishing at Walt Disney World, you should now know that you need to leave your pole at home! Following the recent alligator attack, fishing is forbidden unless it’s a part of a Disney-sanctioned excursion.

Is this how they are going to bring the world of Pandora to life? Seems like it’s possible.

The latest random Guardians of the Galaxy attraction rumor…it could be taking over Ellen’s Energy Adventure. At least it’s a better fit than Tower of Terror was for Walt Disney World. It’s still one where I’ll believe it when I see it.

In Case You Missed It: Disney News and Rumors – Week of June 17, 2016

by on June 17, 2016

ICYMIThere are some weeks I wish we could miss. This one is clearly one of them.

While I don’t live in Orlando, the city is my second home and it has had its fair share of horrible events this week. I cannot express my prayers and thoughts enough for all. #OrlandoUnited

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

 

I have made it clear that the Team Members and Cast Members at the Orlando theme parks are some of the most incredible people during this trying time. These are family and friends of those who were lost and have had an exceptionally hard week, all while having to go back to work, put a smile on their face, and be “happy” for those on vacation. So, I loved that those in Central Florida have banded together this week, in a symbol of unity, to create the viral love that is being displayed. (PS: my brother is in one of those photos.)

Disney Springs will be adding more security cameras.

My heart aches for this family.

Friends of the Earth released the 2016 edition of its Cruise Ship Report Card and Disney Cruise Line was the sole cruise line to earn an “A” for transparency by responding to information requests.

Here are 19 firsts related to Shanghai Disneyland.

Also, happy early Mother’s Day to all the moms and the mom-like figures! We appreciate everything you do for us!
