Disney After Hours Summer 2018

Walt Disney World is a great place to go (I know big surprise you would find that opinion here) but that does not mean everything is great. One thing that is not great is sharing the parks with up to 50,000 other people. Disney knows this and Disney also knows some people will pay for the privilege of having lower crowds.  That is why they offer Disney After Hours. This year the event will be returning the Magic Kingdom on select nights from June through September.

What is Disney After Hours?

Disney After Hours is a hard ticket event. That means your standard Disney admission ticket will not get you into the event. You must purchase a special ticket for the event and Disney limits the number of tickets available. Unlike normal theme park tickets the tickets for this event are date specific and are normally non-refundable. Continue reading Disney After Hours Summer 2018

Fans of the Mouse have been clamoring for new monorails for some time.  Rumors have come and gone that a new fleet was on the way but no new monorails have arrived. This week the rumor mill was kicked into high gear when it was confirmed by Disney legend Bob Gurr (who worked on the original designs for both the Disneyland and Walt Disney World monorails.)

“There is a contract… contracts are underway. You will see (new monorails). If everything works right, it will be the same company, Bombardier.”

Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge

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.
