Bog Iger, chairman and CEO of the Walt Disney Company, first announced that Star Wars was coming both Disneyland and Walt Disney World at the D23 Expo in August of 2015. He promised a unique and immersive experience but did not really give much in the way of detail. In fact he did not even give this new Star Wars land a name. In August of 2017 Bob Chapek, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, told us this new land will be called Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge but what else do we know about this new Star Wars land?

Tron Coming To Walt Disney World

Tron Coming To Walt Disney World

When Shanghai Disney opened in 2016 one of the biggest attractions was a Tron roller coaster. To be honest when I saw the videos I was more than a little jealous . When rumors started floating around I got a excited.  But rumors are just that which leaves us with the question, is Tron coming to Walt Disney World? I cannot give you a definite answer. Bob Iger won’t return my calls but we can look at what the Tron coaster is, how likely it might show up in the States and where it might fit.

Update: Woman Accused of Choking Teen

Woman Accused of Choking Teen

A few days ago I brought you the story of a woman accused of choking a teen at the Magic Kingdom. If you missed it you can read it here. Like I said in the original article I am not judging anything about the case because I was not there. Because I was not there I did not have both sides of the story.

Well now we have the other side of the story. The accused has hired a lawyer and tells things a little differently then the alleged choking victim. I am just telling you there is another side. I am not taking either side because I was not there.  Continue reading Update: Woman Accused of Choking Teen

Woman Accused Of Choking A Girl at Disney

Did you ever think you would read a headline like this one, “woman accused of choking a girl at Disney”? Well now you have. Not only has the woman been accused she has been arrested!

 

Woman Accused Of Choking A Girl at Disney

Now before we get into the details I want to make one thing clear. A woman accused of choking a girl at Disney is not a woman convicted of choking a girl at Disney. It is an allegation at this point but the story is taking some Disney sites by storm and I wanted to bring it to your attention.

The accused woman is 41 year old Tabbatha Mature. According to the reports she was sitting in the Magic Kingdom waiting for the fireworks. Seated in front of her were several teenagers who were travelling with their school.Woman accused of choking a girl at Disney

When the fireworks began the teens stood up and Mrs Mature (if this is true the name certainly doesn’t fit!) began to complain. The teens then allegedly began to leave telling Mature she could have their spot. Continue reading Woman Accused Of Choking A Girl at Disney

Pandora Update Including Possible Opening Date

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park has always had an image issue. People think of it as a half-day park or an overpriced zoo but Disney has been working to change this perception. They added a nighttime safari. They are working on a nighttime show and most importantly they are adding a new land, Pandora: the World of Avatar.

But change has been slow in the coming. Disney announced Pandora in 2011. Construction did not begin until 2014. Guests were left to wonder if and when Pandora would ever open. In late 2016 Disney finally gave a hint at an opening date. They told us it would be summer 2017 but we may have a more specific time frame now.

A clue to when Pandora opens?

The Florida Resident Discover Disney ticket recently returned. This year it is cheaper and has fewer restrictions on when you can use it. But there is one restriction that has some people scratching their head. It is not valid at the Animal Kingdom from the end of May through the first few weeks of June. You can use it at any other park but not the Animal Kingdom?

 

Those who follow Disney know that the Animal Kingdom is not the most popular park so why is a black-out date necessary? Whenever something big is added to any park people flood in to see it. Is Disney trying to control the crowd for the opening of Pandora by blocking those dates for this deeply discounted ticket? It seems likely but only time will tell.

So what do we know about Pandora so far?

Pandora: The World of Avatar is based on the movie Avatar the James Cameron’s blockbuster from 2009.  The film takes place on a planet called Pandora.

The new land replaces Camp Minnie Mickey. Most serious Disney people will know that Camp Minnie Mickey was not part of the original design for the Animal Kingdom. Camp Minnie Mickey was a cheap replacement for the Beastly Kingdom.

Disney cancelled the Beastly Kingdom after construction costs on the rest of the Animal Kingdom went over-budget. The Camp was definitely in need of an upgrade if not a complete replacement. Enter Pandora: The World of Avatar.

The new land features two attractions.  The first is Avatar: Flight of Passage. Avatar Fight of Passage is an E-ticket simulator. Guests will learn to fly a mountain Banshee as seen in the movie. The second attraction is Na’vi River Journey. This boat ride features small drops and animatronic figures.

Of course  no Disney expansion is complete without opportunities to spend some money. Pandora will feature a new restaurant called Satu’li Canteen and Pongu Pongu for those wanting a drink.
