In Case You Missed ItHappy Cinco de Mayo everyone! I wish I was in Orlando dining at La Cantina de San Angel enjoying some tacos or empenadas

This week, take a look at where you can get unique Disney-themed Snapchat filters, break out your crayons (what?), and more. Let’s get to the In Case You Missed It fun!

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


This has to be the hardest thing I’ve ever done. What’s that, you ask? I’m attempting to avoid most major spoilers for Pandora – The World of Avatar. (Crazy, I know! But I’ll be there for sure on opening day!) If you want to see what the land and more looks like, check out this sneak peek.

Looks like Disney may be heading towards driverless shuttles. Very interesting. What do you think of this rumor?

Is there going to be updates to the Jungle Cruise or isn’t there? Dwayne Johnson says yes, Disney says no. Moviefone takes a look at what may be happening.

Rumor time again. Is a Haunted Mansion restaurant coming to Walt Disney World? Would you want to dine here?

Are you on Snapchat? Oh My Disney has shared where you can get special filters themed after some of your favorite attractions and lands.

Disney Cruise Line is the first to sail through the the updated Panama Canal!

Are you going to Hong Kong Disneyland any time soon? You may want to consider staying at their new resort! (From the photos I’m seeing, it reminds me a lot of Aulani.)

Well, while it won’t have my favorite Mouseketeer, Justin, I’ll be curious to see how this new iteration of Mickey Mouse Club on the new Disney Digital Network called Club Mickey Mouse is gonna do.

Could Ewan McGregor be attached to the potential Winnie the Pooh reboot film?

Rumors have been floating this week that two Halloween Horror Houses could be themed around The Shining and Evil Dead. What franchise would you like to see a house themed around?

Fate of the Furious continues to dominate the box office. I think it’s clear from this why Universal is creating a full attraction around the franchise.

I love this! Universal shared some fun coloring pages that can increase your hype for Volcano Bay! Looks like I’m going to need to break out my crayons and colored pencils!

Comcast’s earnings were released this past week and attendance has increased again.
