In Case You Missed It

It’s December!!! What?!

This week, we learn which Disney location is the most Instagrammed, see just how well Coco did at the box office, and more. Are you ready to dive in to what you missed because there’s a lot to get to!

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


It may not be over…Disney may still indeed be eyeing a purchase of Fox.

With Bob Iger officially stepping down in 2019, the pressure is on for the company’s replacement. According to Bloomberg, there’s one name that could be at the top of the list. I’m not sure how I feel about this…personally, I think if you like IP in the parks, this is a decent choice, but if you miss the days of original concepts and were hoping that the next person would allow for more creativity, I don’t know if we’re going to be getting that with Mr. Chapek. If he is chosen, I would like to eat my words, but I don’t know that I will be. 

According to reports, Tokyo Disney is looking at adding an additional theme park. Seriously…if this news is true, this increases my desire to make this bucket list trip. Who wants to pay for me to go to Tokyo? No one? Darn…..

The Disney Conservation Fund supports nonprofit organizations and their work to engage communities in the protection of wildlife and critical ecosystems across the globe. This week, the Fund announced their 2017 Conservation Heroes.

The Disney Company has been on the New York Stock Exchange for 60 years and they celebrated that huge milestone this week.

Disneyland has halted the selling of certain Annual Passes in an effort to aid in crowd control.

Speaking of Disneyland, it was once again named as the most Instagrammed place. Actually various Disney Resorts took 4 of the top 10 spots!

I’m not sure this was needed, but then again, maybe it was. Starbucks will now deliver to you if you are shopping in Disney Springs. Who will be having their coffee delivered to them?

88 million tourists visited Florida in first nine months of 2017, setting a record. Have you visited this year?

The rumor mill was swirling this week about Hall of Presidents. Could it open by the holidays?

If you know anything about me, you know that I was a HUGE fan of The Adventurer’s Club, the former nightclub from Pleasure Island that included improv, yet a fun story, and great characters. Here are 14 facts you may not know about this missed establishment. Kungaloosh!

Coco topped the box office this Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Also Thor hit $500 million internationally too. Not a bad weekend for Disney movies.

Did you love Coco? Now you can update your phone with these great Coco-inspired wallpapers.

So, you want to see Coco, but don’t want to see the Frozen short ahead of the movie? Here’s how to avoid Olaf’s Frozen Adventure.

Aladdin celebrated a huge anniversary this past week! 25 years ago, the film debuted. Here are some things you may not know about the film. (Honestly, there were a number that I didn’t know.)

Lots of news came out about Avengers this week, including the awesome trailer (seriously…did you all see this?!) and the news that we may not see all of our beloved characters make it out of this film. (Oh and if you missed the release of Vanity Fair’s 4 Avengers inspired covers, take a look here.)

Disney’s live action Mulan has its title character.

    What they need is to have Starbucks delivered to your room in the morning…..

    Yes, my family was five of the 88 million! We saw Coco this week and it is a touching story. Olaf’s Frozen Adventure was lots of fun as well.

    A Disney acquisition of FOX could mean the return to the searchlight logo, drums, and horns that preceded Star Wars episodes 1-6 that blends perfectly into the Star Wars theme at the beginning of the movie…

    The Starbucks delivery at Disney Springs feels silly to me. I don’t believe I’ve ever been shopping and couldn’t wait for Starbucks until I was done in that store. It seems ridiculous, though I’m sure some will love it.
