In Case You Missed It: News and Rumors – Week of October 19, 2018

The leaves are changing now and that fall chill is in the air. (Well, for some it may feel more like winter already.) I’m soaking up these cool autumn days while I can because I know they will be very fleeting.

This week, Hocus Pocus fans will want to make sure their DVR is set, see what new Disney music is available to listen to, and more.

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

Do you miss Rainforest Cafe at the Downtown Disney District? Well, with the cancellation of the fourth Disneyland hotel, the restaurant would like to return. Also, here are six ways that the cancelled project will affect those visiting the theme park.

Get ready to listen to some great theme park music! Happy Haul-O-Ween and Season’s Speedings albums from Cars Land can now be heard on Apple and Spotify!

I’m green with envy. Aulani has a pumpkin spice flavored Dole Whip….who else wishes they could try this treat?

Ugh! I just missed it! A brand new show has debuted on Disney Cruise Line called “Disney at Sea with D23” and gives sneak previews of upcoming Walt Disney Company projects.

The Walt Disney Company has donated $1 million in aid to support those communities impacted by Hurricane Michael.

Did you catch the first teaser trailer for the live action Aladdin? What did you think?

This weekend, Freeform is celebrating the 25th anniversary of Hocus Pocus this Saturday with a star-studded TV special. Who else is watching with me?

While most people think about spending New Year’s Eve at a Disney theme park, Universal also has a great shindig to ring in 2019. Have you ever celebrated the holiday at Universal?
