In Case You Missed It: Disney News and Rumors – Week of March 31, 2017

Please tell me how it’s already the end of March?!

No matter, it is in fact the last day of the month, and the excitement of spring is now upon us! Who else is taking a vacay down to Florida for a little getaway?

This week, we learn about pricing for Volcano Bay, updates for Disney Cruise Line, and just who really did break the internet?
