In Case You Missed It: News and Rumors – Week of July 13, 2018

Happy Friday the 13 everyone! I hope everyone is having a great day and no bad luck befalls you!

This week, see who’s influencing your theme park vacations, learn who’s returning to Star Wars, and more.

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

Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Mr. Ojeda, who tragically died due to an accident this week.

Disney faced a major problem this week when a massive network outage took down not only their websites, but My Disney Experience, the Disneyland app, and even ESPN was impacted. Were you one of those who faced issues?

According to Joe Rhode, don’t count out the Yeti just yet. He still claims a fix is in the works for the broken AudioAnamatronic that can be found inside Expedition Everest. At this point, more people have seen the ride broken than those who have seen the Yeti actually working. (I’m one who has seen the attraction when the Yeti actually worked, by the way.)

50 Theme Park Influencers were selected by Blooloop. Learn who was selected and how!

Disney did some movie moving this week. Those who are looking forward to seeing Mary Poppins Returns will get to see it a little bit earlier and Indiana Jones 5 has been pushed back, plus more.

We’re going to see a return of Lando! Billy Dee Williams is going to join the cast of Star Wars: Episode IX. Who else is excited for this news?

Topping the box office this weekend was Ant-Man and the Wasp, which brought in $76 million stateside. Did you see the film yet?

What did we miss? Attach your ideas to an Alien Glowing Plush (Yep…it actually glows!) and send it to blog@touringplans.com with the words “In Case You Missed It” in the subject line.

    My two wishes, inspired by this news roundup:

    1. For the Yeti to move again, and
    2. For the word “influencer” to go away.

    OH NO! They’re going to kill Lando!

    First Han in episode 7, then Luke in episode 8, now it looks like Lando’s number is up.

      Hopefully a hero’s death, and on screen. It will be better than what is likely the off-screen death of Leia.
