For years people have showed up early to be among the first to enter the Magic Kingdom. As a bonus they got to see the Magic kingdom welcome show. But now Disney is replacing the Magic Kingdom welcome show with something totally different.
The current welcome show actually takes place outside of the Magic Kingdom. Guests line up in front of the Mainstreet USA train station. Performers sing a welcome song. The mayor of Mainstreet USA makes a little speech and then the Walt Disney Railroad brings in Mickey and his friends. Disney has normally selected a family from the crowd to “help” Mickey. Eventually Mickey counts down from 10 and the gates are opened.
250 local people lost there homes to a fire just before Christmas. Many individuals and organizations stepped up to help make Christmas a little more magical for these families. Disney donated rooms to help fire victims.
The Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort is the most visited theme park in the world but there is one thing some guests have been missing. They would like to have a drink. Until 2012 that was completely impossible. Since 2012 it was not easy to get alcohol in the Magic Kingdom but starting next week it will get a little easier according the the Orlando Sentinel.
The Magic Kingdom will still be drier than the other theme parks. There will still be some major restrictions for alcohol in the Magic Kingdom. In fact Disney is only adding alcohol to the menu at four locations which means there will be five places total in the Magic Kingdom where you can get something a little stronger than a Dole Whip Float.

Wondering how to save some money on a Walt Disney World vacation? You are not alone! It is no secret that a Disney vacation is expensive. From parking at one of the parks to eating nothing is cheap but tickets are one of the most expensive things to buy. Now there is a new (limited time option) for New Cheaper Four Day Disney Tickets. Unfortunately there are some strings attached.
What is the new cheaper four day Disney tickets
The cheaper four day ticket is called the 4 Park Magic Ticket and it is only available until March 5th of 2017. It must be used by May 26th, 2017. The cost is $279 for adult and $259 for children ages 3-9 (under 3 is free!)

Are you a fan of the Kermit, Mrs Piggie, and all their muppet friends? Well these is good news for you! Starting October 2nd Disney will debut a new Muppets show at the Magic Kingdom.

Lights Motors Action Closing will be closing on April 2, 2016. This announcement follows a long list of closures at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in preparation for the Star Wars Land and Toy Story Land expansions. Continue reading Lights Motors Action Closing→
The fact that Disney has announced a nearly year long refurbishment has many people asking, ” Is Pizza Planet at Hollywood Studios Closing?” While at first the idea seems crazy (Pizza Planet is very popular!) there are some very good reasons to consider it.
First is the fact that it will be closed from January to November. That suggests more than just updating and giving everything a fresh coat of paint. It suggests a complete overhaul. It suggests that the building that houses Pizza Planet today is going to house something totally different come November.
Second is location. Like the real estate agents tell you it is all about location. Pizza Planet is located right next to the Star Tours -The Adventure Continues. That location seems prime to be the center point of the new Star Wars Land and a Toy Story themed Pizza Planet would create a disturbance in the Force.
Speaking of locations Star Wars is not the only new land coming to Hollywood Studios. Toy Story is getting its own land. But where will it go? Disney is in the process of adding a third track to Toy Story Midway Mania which is probably the most popular ride at Hollywood Studios. So the logical place to place Toy Story Land is near the already existing attraction. That attraction, as you can see from the map below, is half-way across the park.
So maybe Pizza Planet is not closing for good. Maybe it is just moving to a new home. We can hope!
Disney Quick Service Seating has always been first come first served (with Be Our Guest being the only exception.) Recent tests conducted at some Quick Service locations could indicate that is about to change.
Walt Disney World is the most popular theme park in the world. It should come as no surprise that there are often long lines for the rides. If you try to eat at the normal meal times you will probably find out there are long lines at the quick service restaurants too. After all everyone has to eat right?
