Wow! This week I found a TON of great information for you, so without much delay, let’s just dive right in!

Have you heard the latest rumor of what new restaurant could be making it’s way to Disney Springs, seen the new trailer for Inside Out, or heard what latest accolade Disney Cruise Line received? I’ve got all of that and more. Check it all out on this week’s edition of “In Case You Missed It.”

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

 

Bob Iger recently talked with Variety about his experience testing out the upcoming Banshee attraction for Avatarland, as well as information about the upcoming Star Wars expansion. Finally, don’t miss the rest of the overall interview, which can be found here. All three pieces shared lots of great little nuggets. Which was the most interesting to you? (As for me, I’m certainly curious what’s going on with Star Wars…even though I’m not a Star Wars fanatic. Also, I’m wondering if it’s a great idea seemingly hitching the upcoming updates to what appears to be the new trilogy and stand-alone films. Again, we’re playing the wait and see game.)

Will another restaurant in Disney Springs be operated by the same company who operates Raglan Road? It certainly looks like it will be possible.

Have you set up your Holiday decorations yet? I am so woefully behind! My tree isn’t up, but at least my house has Christmas lights on it! So, that’s a step in the right direction.

This week’s articles are Frozen heavy, because well…it’s 2014 and it’s clearly the year of Frozen. In addition, this week appears to be pretty rumor heavy…with rumors about upcoming movies, upcoming Disneyland refurbs, and upcoming Universal additions. Make sure to read on to find out more!

The movie rumor of the week…is Frozen 2 in the works? According to many reports, the answer is yes. (I mean one would think it would be happening. I can’t see Disney not choosing to make a sequel off the popular franchise.)

The Motley Fool had a detailed look at “21 Interesting Facts About the Walt Disney Company.” I certainly learned a lot reading this article, and I think you will too.

Seriously, if you are not reading former Disney artist Floyd Norman’s blog, you should be. This week he wrote a great piece about what it was like to work for Disney in the 1960s. That story about the horse is fantastic. It’s so great to hear about the company from someone who lived it.

Who turned off the heater outside? I know that the cold weather is just getting started, but I am already tired of it. (I moved south for a reason!) Stupid polar vortex.

Veterans Day was this week, and along with a great article posted here, I also came across another fantastic article discussing the flag retreat at Disneyland. Thank you to all those who serve in the U.S. military and if you are a Disney fan and seen (or if possible, taken part in) the flag ceremony, I hope you have the chance to it soon.

In Case You Missed It!

We are so excited here in our house! You see, today is opening day for Big Hero 6! My hubby has been anxiously awaiting this film. Honestly, I think he’s more excited than I am. (Anytime we came across a Big Hero 6 preview when catching up on our DVRed shows, he’d always go back to watch it.) So, you know where we’ll be this evening! Who else is excited to finally meet the squishy Baymax via the big screen?

This week, check out the Marvel special that aired on ABC, find out just how many Elsa dresses have been sold in the past year, and so much more!

Every time you go to Disney parks, you see little girls dressed as Elsa, and I’m sure that during Halloween you saw quite a few on your doorsteps. But just how many Elsa dresses have been sold? The “Reader’s Digest” version is: a lot.¬† (Find out the actual number by reading the article.)

Wow! It seems like just yesterday that Raglan Road opened its doors, but it has officially been in operation for 9 years! Find out why the way this restaurant is run makes it so popular with both locals and tourists and what they think about the upcoming Disney Springs refreshing of Downtown Disney.

Is it true? Is Babycakes NYC going to be included in the new Disney Springs update? The Orlando Business Journal seems to think so. Guess we’ll find out sooner, rather than later, but I bet a ton of people would be excited if this would indeed happen.

We are one week from Halloween! I’ve already bought my candy (um…I may need to buy more; I can’t say there’s much left). I have also got the pumpkin all ready to carve. There are so many options, but I think I want to try to one of these choices. (I really love the Tower of Terror one!)

Today, I bring you a ton of articles about upcoming movies, including ones about Big Hero 6 and the upcoming  2016 film Moana, plus more!

Forbes released an intriguing article this week. It took a look at how Disney is interacting with its customers in these changing times of fast-moving marketing and how to stay relevant to guests wants and needs. Of course, we know the answer is MyMagic+, but, the article shares some thought-provoking points, nonetheless.

While ground has officially broken for two new Marriott hotels in the Flamingo Crossing area of Walt Disney World property, we could actually be seeing a few more hotels in the area; potentially 5 more. Hmmm….
