Ears the News with Richard

The 'Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show' at Disney's Hollywood Studios is scheduled to be closed for a brief refurbishment in November. The closure begins on 11/18/2013 through to 11/21/2013.

A new snack kiosk offering nutritional information and gluten-free snacks is now open at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Called 'Gardens Kiosk,' you can find the new location just outside the Adventurers Outpost meet and greet on Discovery Island. The kiosk is unique in that it offers information about allergies and intolerances for restaurants throughout Disney's Animal Kingdom.  Guests can still talk to a chef at each individual restaurant, but the kiosk gives an opportunity to gain more information prior to arrival at a restaurant. Secondly, the kiosk also offers a range of pre-packaged gluten-free snacks. The following is available:

Actor Neil Patrick Harris is now confirmed to be joining the celebrity narrator line-up for the 2013 Candlelight Processional, part of Holidays Around the World at Epcot. 

The actor who is known for roles such as Barney in “How I Met Your Mother”, and Doogie Howser, MD is a huge Epcot fan himself, and a fan favorite narrator. He will be appearing on 12/2/2013 and 12/3/2013.

As the busy summer period comes to an end, things are moving rapidly in the parking lots at Downtown Disney as site preparation for the first of two Disney Springs parking garages nears.
Parking lots I and J now join lot H as being closed. All are now walled off, and construction trailers are in place on lot H. Lot K will be closing soon to be part of the parking garage space. To help orientate you, lot H is directly across from Planet Hollywood, and lots I,J,K run from the AMC Dine In Theater all the way to Splitsville. A lot of parking capacity has been lost with these closures, and Disney has put in place alternative arrangements using off-site parking.

The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details.

As expected, lightning will be addressed by the Skyliner system closing when lightning is forecast. The system does feature lightning protection, but Disney will obviously be keeping guests out of the sky during bad weather. Bus service will be available during weather closure of the Skyliner.


Disney Skyliner is able to carry 10 guests per cabin, and guests may also travel with strollers, wheelchairs and service animals.

There are five stations in total covering the 3 lines - at Caribbean Beach, Pop Century/Art of Animation, Disney Riviera Resort, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot International Gateway. Caribbean Beach is the main gateway and you will transfer there to each destination.

Although Disney Riviera Resort doesn…

Disney Villains After Hours Event

This summer, the Kingdom Konsultant Agents took on a full day of training followed by a late night Magic Kingdom adventure at the Disney Villains After Hours Event.  The night promised low crowds, special effects on attractions, specialty food items available for purchase, a unique stage show and PhotoPass opportunities, and Maleficent at night. In addition, there were complimentary soda, bottled water, popcorn and ice cream novelties with our event admission! We couldn't wait to see what we could accomplish! Pro tip: you won't be able to accomplish it all in one night, there is just too much to see and do!

Walking in to Main Street was a little hectic with the day guests leaving and the party guests arriving.  We almost missed the guide map but managed to double back to grab some so that we could all make a plan! You notice right away a different feel to the park with little hints of the villains all around.



The two main attractions with overlays were Pirates of the Caribbean…
