Welcome to another weekly recap, for the week ending May 5th. From work on Tron to a new logo for Hollywood Studios and everything in between, let’s check out what happened this week at the Disney Parks!
Tron Roller Coaster Goes Vertical at Magic Kingdom
We’ve been following the Tron roller coaster construction pretty closely this past week, issuing two photo updates of the work. First, we saw the footers get installed, but more recently we noticed that the support columns have been installed too! Check out the post for a closer look.
Magic Kingdom Entrance Overhaul
We’ve seen the work at the Transportation and Ticket Center, we’ve seen the work at Epcot, and we’ve seen the work at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. We’ve even spotted the permits for an entrance overhaul at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Now it’s Magic Kingdom’s turn for an entrance overhaul. We detail the work coming and look at permits filed with the state.
Special FastPass+ Offer Allows You to Park Hop!
For the first time ever, select guests will be able to book FastPass+ selections at three different theme parks for the same day when they book select packages. Check out the article for more details.
Disney Cancels Early Morning Magic for September…
With so many moving parts and operational questions unanswered for Walt Disney World when Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens, we’ve received reports that Disney has started to cancel September Early Morning Magic reservations at Magic Kingdom…and we may now know why…
…to Allow for All-New “Extra, Extra Magic Hours”
It would seem that Disney cancelled the Early Morning Magic reservations to allow for the all-new “Extra, Extra Magic Hours” that will be running daily at Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom.
And here’s the BREAKING news…guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort will be able to enjoy 3 hours of Early Morning Magic in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge starting in September! Read on for more details.
A Family of Ducks Shut Down Splash Mountain
While visiting Magic Kingdom, we noticed that Splash Mountain was not operating. Upon asking a Cast Member for more details, she revealed that a family of ducks were responsible for the closure! We have more details and a photo of one of the ducks on our story.
