A new nature inspired resort will be opening at Disney World in 2022. I think that it looks nice.

I'll be leaving for Orlando in 3 weeks, 1 hour, and roughly 17 minutes. (Give or take a few minutes.) One day at Universal/Islands of Adventure, one day for EPCOT/Hollywood Studios, one day for Magic Kingdom, one day for Animal Kingdom, and a couple of non-theme park days.

One of my close friends took her family to Disney World for the first time just recently. They had a great time, but on their last day a family member, who is a little girl, fell off a ledge at Epcot and broke her elbow.

Also, here's a look at the newly re-opened World of Disney at the Disneyland Resort.

In order to make wider walkways, Disneyland has been removing benches. They are compensating for this by adding more seating in restaurants.

I just read about this elsewhere. The park really can get overcrowded and with 'Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge' opening in less than year, they need to prepare for more crowds coming.

First details of the new Marvel attactions coming to California Adventure.

https://wdwnt.com/2018/10/breaking-f...eyland-resort/

The former “it’s tough to be a bug” Theater building is being repurposed for the new Spider-Man attraction where guests are given a web-shooter of their own to use. The ride appears to be mostly screen-based (likely 3D in nature), so think Toy Story Midway Mania, but with guests shooting webs instead of darts, balls, and rings. The entrance to the building will be rerouted to the opposite side of so it can be accessed from the hub of this new land. The central hub is a large Avengers symbol in the ground that is surrounded by all of the land’s offerings. Think of this as The Avengers’ California Campus.
The Spider-Man queue is attached to the former “tissue box” restrooms of A Bug’s Land, which will be remodeled and kept for the new area.
Nearby, Doctor Strange has his own show experience where guests will meet the Avenger in a round courtyard. We expect this to be similar to an offering currently on the Disney Cruise Line.

If you’re hungry, there are some dining options nearby. There is a counter service restaurant and microbrewery in the plans. Who do you theme a microbrewery to? Well, Ant-Man of course. This explains the giant canned beverage that appears on the poster. This can will be located on the second level of the building.

The giant canned beverage sits on top of the Ant-Man microbrewery.

While we’re looking at the poster, it’s worth noting that what you see is what you will get. While not absolutely true to life, this will pretty much be the view guests will have down the main thoroughfare of the Marvel land heading towards Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission Breakout.

The Quinjet is located in front of the Phase 2 offering (not flying like in the poster), a truly massive Avengers E-Ticket attraction that is expected to be a roller coaster. As for story elements or anything beyond that, details are scarce at this point. All we know is that it is HUGE in scale.

Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway will no longer be an East Coast exclusive ride when it opens at Hollywood Studios. It will also be coming to Mickey's Toontown at Disneyland.

Disney originally wanted Harry Potter attractions at their parks, but they were going to be tiny.

This was tiny. Itty bitty. There were two attractions. Basically, it was going to be Buzz Lightyear. You were going to be in an Omnimover attraction with a wand instead of a gun, and you were moving through basically a Dark Arts teaching class. The other aspect was going to be a Care of Magical Creatures Petting Zoo.

I suppose if that happened, maybe they would've eventually purchased Warner Bros. properties like they did with Fox's Star Wars and Avatar.

Lol, Tony Goldmark had a skit in his Wizarding World video that played exactly like that...

Well put like that it makes perfect sense why JKR went off to Universal instead.

Ralph and Vanellope von Schweetz will be visiting Disney Parks next month right around the time Ralph Breaks the Internet hits theaters.

A brand-new shop, Globus Mundi Travel Agents, opened at Diagon Alley, Universal Studios Florida this past week. There's plenty of merchandise to buy there.

The vehicles for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy ride at Disney World's Epcot have been revealed.



https://insidethemagic.net/2018/11/g...ride-vehicles/

The Disney Skyliner gondola system for Disney World has been announced to begin transporting guests in the fall of 2019. This will make traveling around the resorts and parks much easier.

A new nighttime spectacular is coming to Disney World's Epcot in 2020.



Plus, the France pavilion will be receiving a Beauty and the Beast sing-along show and the upcoming Ratatouille attraction will be called Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure. The 'O Canada! 360-degree show' at the Canada pavilion will also be receiving an update.

https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/bl...ced-for-epcot/

Lots of details about 'Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge' were also released along with this video of the upcoming Millennium Falcon ride.



https://insidethemagic.net/2018/11/b...destination-d/

Disney also debuted a clip of the 'Rise of the Resistance' ride as well.

https://ew.com/movies/2018/11/17/sta...he-resistance/

And finally, we can listen to the new score that John Williams has composed for the land. He clearly hasn't lost his touch.

To this day, I still find it disappointing that 'The Great Movie Ride' is no longer a part of Disney Hollywood Studios. New details about the Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway have been released.

Just saw a video where someone does the actual math and research to how expensive, and what sacrifices you would have to make, if you wanted to live in DisneyWorld for a full year.

And not as in those insanely pricey mansions that people actually live on Disney Grounds in for around 2 1/2 million or more. But what it would cost and require to live in Disney World inside one of the resorts 24/7 for a full year. Both the cheapest path and even just for giggles the most expensive path (spoiler: It's a lot of money)

It's an interesting watch and I wish some writer or youtuber or something would attempt that. Oh well if I win the lottery maybe I will try... of course... I will probably need to at least buy a ticket someday if I want to do that.

Disneyland Paris will have doubled in size by 2030 according to this report. Lots of new attractions might be added and there might even be a third park opening in the future.
