In Case You Missed It: Disney News and Rumors – Week of July 10, 2015

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

It’s a great Friday! I’m just about to sail away on the Disney Dream! It doesn’t get much better than that!

So, before I say bon voyage, I of course, have some goodies to share with you! (You didn’t think I’d leave you hanging, did you?) Speaking of Disney Cruise Line, they won a prestigious award from Travel and Leisure Magazine, we have a rumored new restaurant for Disney Springs, and more!

 

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

 

This week, we lost a great Disney Legend. Blaine Gibson, who created many of the sculptures and characters that we know and love, including the beloved Partners statue, passed away this week. You certainly will be missed.

If you were on social media this past weekend, you would have seen the firestorm of activity surrounding the lightning that was taking place at the Magic Kingdom. Here are just a few of the spectacular shots.

Has another restaurant recently been leaked for Disney Springs? Is Chef Art’s Florida Fish Camp coming to the shopping and dining district? Thoughts?

The Anaheim City Council voted to extend its tax break on Disneyland ticket sales for another 30 years.

Disney Cruise Line was named the Top Mega-Ship Ocean Cruise Line by Travel and Leisure readers! (I am on the ship and I would have to agree! 😉 )

There is a new app for Star Wars fans that you need to download.

It took them a while, but Inside Out is finally number one at the box office this past weekend!

This. This right here is why we love Johnny Depp! See what happened as he surprised kids and their families in a hospital in Australia dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow.

The second Star Wars spin off film will indeed be about Han Solo. The movie will come out in May 2018.  Does this excite you?

Well…here’s a movie I didn’t know I needed to see – a live action movie featuring Prince Charming’s story.

Did you enjoy the Mickey Mouse shorts on the Disney Channel? Then I have good news! They are coming back for a third season! They start back up next Friday, July 17.

In Case We Missed It

 

What did we miss? Attach your ideas to a pre-order slip for Disney Playmation and send it to blog@touringplans.com with the words “In Case You Missed It” in the subject line.

    Not sure if I’m excited about it, I wonder if it hurts the chance of Indy 5 with Harrison?

    Ugh! I hate those Mickey shorts…they remind me more of old Ren & Stimpy episodes than anything Disney every made. Warts and all. Just gross.
