In Case You Missed It: Disney News and Rumors – Week of May 29, 2015

In Case You Missed It!
In Case You Missed It!

I love short weeks, don’t you? This week just breezed right by! (Maybe that’s because I slept a lot…I went down to Disney for the 24 hour event and after working, driving down, and touring in the parks, I was up for 27 hours! It was a lot of fun and totally worth it though!) Did you happen to attend the 24 hour day at either the Magic Kingdom or Disneyland Resort? Let me know your thoughts in the comments about the event and if you’d ever do it again!

This week’s articles include a great article about EPCOT, an interview with Neil Patrick Harris about his duties as host of World of Color, and much more!

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

 

This is the must read article of the week:  A look at EPCOT, Walt’s plan to build the city of Tomorrow.  Thoughts?

A new solar energy facility will be built near Epcot courtesy of Duke Energy.

What else can people wear so that Disney can expand its MyMagic+ system? That’s the question the company is currently asking itself, according to this article. Is there anything you wish you could use to have access to the Disney parks? The most common request I hear is that Disney works with Apple to allow the Apple Watch to function like a MagicBand.

Is Disney planning to change it’s ticket price system again? While nothing is official, Disney is floating this idea in surveys. I don’t know about you, but this is starting to all get very confusing. I very much dislike this way of handling ticket pricing.

Time takes a look at why Disney is poised to just dominate with its incredible winning streak, as of late. (And it is incredible…let me tell you!)

We all know that Neil Patrick Harris is a big Disney fan like all of us. So what is it like for this Disney fan to be a part of the newly updated World of Color? The actor gives his thoughts, as well as some other great tidbits in this interview. (Oh on the off-chance he’s reading this, seriously…NPH…anytime you ever want to talk super nerdy Disney stuff…I’m here for ya baby! 😉 What? It could happen…but probably not. )

Did you happen to catch these 6 Disneyland Easter eggs in Tomorrowland?

Speaking of Tomorrowland, while it was a sluggish Memorial Day Weekend at the box office this year, Tomorrowland was still the top dog. What were your thoughts of the film?

Staying at the movie theaters, The Avengers:Age of Ultron have officially assembled $400 million in box office earnings; the fourth ever fastest film to do so.

    I am totally confused about the suggestion that ticket prices should be different depending on what day you visit. We like to visit from UK for 2 or 3 weeks – I plan an itinerary but things change so we may swap the day in Epcot and a day by the pool around for example. After all we are on holiday aren’t we? I hope they don’t introduce it 🙁
