Filed under: In Case You Missed It

July is winding down…which makes me sad. July is my favorite month. (Maybe it’s because it’s my birthday and anniversary month.) But there is a silver lining. We are just about one month out from fall. Well, Walt Disney World fall. You see by the end of next month, we will already have started both Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and the Epcot Food and Wine Festival. Who else is excited?

This week, learn what stores will be closing at Downtown Disney, see what new resort may be popping up at the Walt Disney World Resort, and more.

Soon we’ll be hearing that famous phrase once again…. “This is American Idol” and it will be brought to us by none other that Ryan Seacrest.

Did you know that there is a new documentary being made about Howard Ashman by Don Hahn? Take a look at the trailer for the film.

The rumors seemed to be true. It’s time to say goodbye to Dragon Challenge as it makes way for a new attraction. What do you think about this news?
