After a short trip to the happiest place on earth to check out Pixar Fest (check back next month for our breakdown), the media machine that is Walt Disney company keeps moving right along! Here’s everything you may have missed about Disney this week!
Avenger’s Infinity War – Spoiler Free
It’s here!! It’s here!! It’s finally here!! Do you have your tickets? I was lucky enough to catch this movie last night, and I will definitely be going again soon. Nobody likes spoilers, so I won’t do that to you lovely people. But I will tell you it was worth every penny. It’s gotten great reviews, from fans and critics alike.
Trouble in Pandora
There’s been reports of multi-day closures in Pandora – The World of Avatar. On Tuesday, April 24, Flight of Passage and Na’vi Journey were closed intermittently throughout the day. Then, for the first time since the land opened last year, both rides were completely shut down on Wednesday. Flight of Passage re-opened sometime on Thursday, but as of this morning Na’vi River Journey is still closed. It’s no secret that both rides have been plagued with technical difficulty since the beginning, but we haven’t seen anything like this before. Some sources are reporting it could be related to the fire alarm system, but we’re just not sure. Hopefully this fan favorite comes back to life soon!
Free Dining Offer Was Released
This popular promotion was released by Disney World on Tuesday morning, with more restrictions than ever. The promotion is available for most arrivals between 8/20 – 9/29, 11/24 – 11/27, and 12/7 – 12/23, for stays of at least 5 nights with 6 day park hopper passes. Let me tell you, these rooms are going FAST! If you’re looking to take advantage of this deal you’ll need to do it fast follow me on Facebook. Be sure to for updates about the latest offers! It seems like Disney is offering less and less dates for this promo each year, and requiring more and more of the guests to grab it. It even has some speculating if the offer is being eased out.
Mickey’s FUn Wheel is No More
New concept art was released for the revitalization project going on at the California Adventure Pier, along with a new name. While the ride will remain, the carts are getting a fun Pixar makeover. When the attraction re-opens in June it will become the Pixar Pal-A-Round
Dumbo Live Action First Look
I’m just going to say it; this is creepy. I’m not sure who green-lighted Tim Burton, the man behind The Nightmare Before Christmas, to direct this but I don’t think they thought it through. Maybe it’s just me though, let me know below what you think of this new look.
