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

In celebration of Mickey’s birthday, if you share a photo of you wearing mouse ears on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook with the #ShareYourEars, Disney will donate $5 to Make-A-Wish! I’ve shared my photo on all three! Also, if you missed the 90th birthday special for Mickey, here it is for your viewing pleasure.

This week, a woman left  her newborn with a stranger at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.

This is an interesting look at a trend that’s happening among us Millennials. We are really all in on the “experience economy“, especially in relation to theme park touring. What do you think about this idea?

I have a fantastic deal for you! Head to the Coca-Cola Store Rooftop Beverage Bar at Disney Springs and purchase this refillable Coke bottle and you can get refills for $1! No word on how long this offer will last, but if you’ll be visiting soon, this may be something you want to look into.

With the recent flop of The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, we wonder why Disney keeps relying on live action remakes of their animated classics. (That’s sarcasm, by the way.)

Why is it that the recent “original” live action Disney films have performed in a lackluster manner at the box office lately?

Want to know who will be performing during the Walt Disney World holiday specials this year? The list is out! Who are you excited to see?

Looks like there will be no Boba Fett film. Are you sad by this news?

Looks like we’re getting more Shrek and Puss in Boots films.

    I have to admit, I’m not saddened by the news that there will not be an entire feature film devoted to a character who only had a couple of lines, but was bizarrely fixated upon by fans simply because they thought his helmet looked cool. Boba Fett was the Figwit of Star Wars, there, I said it.
