Disney Turkey LegDisney Did You Know

Tip Of The Week

If you are traveling with a little one who isn’t a fan of the dark, or with someone whose eyes have trouble adjusting to the dark quickly, bring a mini flashlight to use in some of the queues. This mini flashlight will also come in handy for reading menus in darkened restaurants and for navigating your hotel room during the night while everyone else is fast asleep.

Walt DisneyWalt’s Words

“A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.”

Disney Did You Know

There are really only 107 ghosts in the Haunted Mansion not 999.

Tip Of The Week

If you are traveling with young children not used to drinking out of regular cups yet, it is a great idea to pack some straws. Some places in Disney World only sell bottled beverages which can be difficult for little ones, and a straw can make all of the difference. I also cut a few down to a smaller size and use them in the drinks provided on the airplane.

Disney's Hollywood Studios

Entertainment Experiences Slowly Returning To Hollywood Studios

If you have visited Disney’s Hollywood Studios in the last few years, you’ve undoubtedly noticed the increase in crowds and longer wait times throughout the park since the openings of Toy Story Land and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. The decreased park capacity along with numerous shuttered attractions due to the COVID-19 pandemic have brought these issues to the forefront. Luckily, entertainment is slowly returning to Hollywood Studios to help accommodate and spread out visitors. Earlier this month, “For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration,” pop up celebrity motorcades, and “Disney Junior Play & Dance!” have been added to the line up of fun offerings eager guests can enjoy during their visit to the park.

Disney Parks Blog shared some exciting details…

Frozen Sing-Along CelebrationYou can once again join Erik and Aria, the Royal Historians of Arendelle, for their comedic retelling of the unique story of their kingdom, filled with delightful, sing-along moments from Disney’s “Frozen” and special appearances by Anna, Elsa and Kristoff. “For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration” will be the same incredible show guests have loved for the past six years, with some adjustments to staging and audience seating to allow for appropriate physical distancing.

Hollywood Studios Celebrity MotorcadeRolling intermittently throughout the day, you never know when some of your favorite characters might pass by, so have your camera ready! Each celebrity motorcade features stars on the street and others – like Mickey Mouse, Edna Mode or Doc McStuffins – riding in colorful custom convertibles powered by Chevrolet. Mickey and Friends Motorcade highlights Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto and their friends Chip ‘n’ Dale, accompanied by a bouncy musical score inspired by Disney cartoon shorts. The Pixar Pals Motorcade takes the Incredibles, Woody, Buzz Lightyear and others down the avenue, waving to their fans to the beat of the Green Army Drum Corps. And the Disney Junior Stars Motorcade brings favorite TV friends Fancy Nancy, Doc McStuffins and Vampirina to Hollywood Boulevard.

Disney Junior Play & Dance! Disney Junior fans are also invited to join the fun at “Disney Junior Play & Dance!” in the Animation Courtyard. Each party performance throughout the day features a dynamic DJ spinning favorite songs from Disney Junior TV shows, plus special onstage appearances by Disney Junior stars such as Mickey Mouse, Vampirina and more.

Along with these recent entertainment additions, guests can also enjoy the following attractions:

  • Alien Swirling Saucers
  • Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy
  • Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway
  • Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run
  • Muppet*Vision 3D
  • Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster
  • Slinking Dog Dash
  • Star Tours – The Adventure Continues
  • Toy Story Mania!
  • Vacation Fun
  • Walt Disney Presents
  • Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

Hopefully, as conditions improve, we will see more attractions, entertainment, and experiences returning to Walt Disney World once again!
