Ears the News with Richard


Pete's Silly Sideshow in Storybook Circus will be changing its hours of operation starting 4/7/2013. The meet and greet location will open 45 minutes after the park opens, except on Extra Magic Hour mornings and during busy periods. Closing time is one hour prior to park close.

The Courtyard Pool at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort has reopened following an extensive refurbishment that has seen a near complete rebuild of the pool.  A new zero-entry side has been added during the refurbishment, which has changed the mood of the pool from a quiet pool to more of a family pool, as young children are now enjoying the very shallow zero-entry side of the pool.

Disney has confirmed the speculation from late last year that a new restaurant will be added to Epcot's Morocco Pavilion.  Details are limited, but the restaurant will be called 'Spice Road Table', and will serve various small plates and refreshments inspired by the Mediterranean. Seating will be both indoors and out, and will be open by the end of 2013. Construction walls have already been put in place to begin the construction work.

The resort service fee at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort has been increased to $17 +tax from 4/1/2013. This change does not in any way effect the Disney owned resorts.

Things are beginning to happen at Downtown Disney in preparation to begin work on building Disney Springs. The setup of the construction trailer compound has begun in Lot Q behind Cirque Du Soleil on the West Side. These trailers will allow the current Cast Members who located in the offices behind Pleasure Island to move out, freeing up that space to begin construction on the main areas of Disney Springs. It should not be long before we start seeing heavy work taking place on the Pleasure Island site.
