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

 

This year’s TEA report is out and most theme parks saw growth, even in spite of ticket increases.

STK Orlando has now opened at Disney Springs. Are you excited to try this restaurant?

Now you can download a free e-book to celebrate the Disney Conservation Fund’s 20th Anniversary.

Disneyland AP holders are getting a nice perk this summer! Take a look!

Shanghai Disneyland has already seen one million visitors and it isn’t even open yet.

This week’s can’t miss video was from Candace Payne and her new Chewbacca mask. But did you happen to see her on James Cordon? She got to meet a surprise guest.

In a video you didn’t know you needed to see, but is all kinds of entertaining, watch different characters sing “Hello” from Adele courtesy of one man. Definitely talented.

Earlier, I gave you all a partial list of DCOM movies that will be airing this summer, as Disney Channel is slated to air all 100 Disney Channel Movies. We now have the full schedule, which can be found here. Which is your favorite? (My sleeper favorite…The Luck of the Irish…could be because I had a thing for Ryan Merriman at the time…)

Miles from Tomorrowland starts its new season soon. Is this a favorite in your family?

Captain America: Civil War is now officially the highest grossing movie for 2016 worldwide! It has now earned 1 billion!

Looks like Thor: Ragnarok got some more star power behind it, as some big names just joined the cast.

Did you all catch the sneak peek trailer for Beauty and the Beast? What did you think?

Speaking of trailers, we got another one this week for Finding Dory. The more I see from this one, the more excited I get. I don’t know about you.

The voice of Unca Scrooge passed away this week.

Are you excited about this one. Beginning in September, Netflix will become the exclusive home of the latest films from Disney, Marvel, Lucasfilm and Pixar.

I LOVE this engagement photo shoot taken at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter!
