Ears the News with Richard



The Flying Fish Cafe at Disney's BoardWalk Resort will be offering breakfast for a limited period in the fall of 2014. Reservations are open now for breakfast between October 1 and December 7, with seating from 7:30 AM to 11:00 AM.

Menu items include dishes such as waffle with tiramisu mascarpone, soft polenta with fennel sausage, and frittata with roasted red pepper and prosciutto.

As I am sure most of you know, Disney can put on some rather impressive fireworks displays. It should only follow that the ones they put on for the 4th of July are impressive turned up to 11. WDWMagic was kind enough to post a video of them for all of us to enjoy- click here to view it!


Frozen Summer Fun LIVE at Disney's Hollywood Studios is officially underway. WDWMagic has posted some video of the park decor and a look inside the skating rink at Soundstage 1 along with

Anna’s & Elsa’s Royal Welcome which takes place each day at 11:00 AM and the fireworks that take place in the evening.

Ears the News: September 27, 2019 Edition

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…
