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.
