Breakfast will begin at 8:00 AM through to 10:00 AM, and will be quick service prix fixe at $19.99 plus tax for adults, and $11.99 plus tax for ages 3 - 9. Each breakfast begins with a pastry basket for sharing, and then a choice of entree and self service beverage.

Breakfast at Be Our Guest will be on the Disney Dining Plan with 1 quick service credit, and just like lunch, it will require a reservation even though it is a quick service offering. Walks up will be offered if space is available, which is very unlikely.
Unlike lunch, pre-ordering of menu items will not be available, and selections will be made inside the restaurant.


Reservations began on March 17 using My Disney Experience for dates from March 20 through to June 18 2015.

The traditional parking permits that are issued for Walt Disney World Resort hotel guests are soon to be discontinued.

Beginning the roll-out this week at Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resort, the parking permits will no longer be handed out at check-in, with guests now being asked to use their MagicBand for parking access.

At the theme parks, guests will present their MagicBand at the auto plaza booth to validate free parking permission. When returning to the resort hotel, guests can enter the dedicated guest lane and use the MagicBand for access through the barrier.

Those guests that do not have a MagicBand can use their RFID Key to the World cards instead.

The change to a paperless parking system is especially important following the recent introduction of the direct to room capability that allows guests to bypass traditional check in.

Following the initial introduction of the new system at Yacht and Beach Club, expect the roll out to continue to the other resorts over the next few months.

Disney has revealed more details for this summer's “Frozen” Summer Fun LIVE at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

The format is largely the same as last year, minus the Wondering Oaken Trading Post and Ice Skating
rink. Perhaps of most interest is the relocation of For the First Time in Forever: A "Frozen" Sing-Along Celebration from the Premier Theater to the home of the former American Idol Experience. Previously named Superstar Television Theater, the location will be renamed to 'Hyperion Theater.'

Also new this year will be two performances of the Frozen Royal Welcome cavalcade. Last year there was only one performance, resulting in a very congested parade route.

"Frozen" Summer Fun LIVE begins on June 17 2015 and continues daily through September 7 2015 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and is included with park admission.

Here are the full details from the official Disney Parks Blog.

Frozen Royal Welcome – Twice each day, Anna, Elsa and Kristoff take part in a festive cavalcade throughout Hollywoodland, accompanied by the Royal Arendelle Flag Corps and a flurry of skaters, skiiers and ice cutters – along with lovable snowman, Olaf. Anna leads the procession in a beautiful horse-drawn sleigh, with Elsa gliding by on a stunning, ice palace float. The entire procession pauses twice along the route in tribute to these visitors from Arendelle, as everyone in Hollywoodland is invited to join in singing “Let It Go!”

For the First Time in Forever: A “Frozen” Sing-Along Celebration – Just in time for this year’s “Frozen” Summer Fun LIVE event, this popular show moves into the beautiful Hyperion Theater (formerly Superstar Television Theater), located right in the heart of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The Royal Historians of Arendelle host a fun and comedic retelling of the unique story of their kingdom, filled with delightful, sing-along moments from “Frozen,” plus all-new in-theater effects and special appearances by Anna, Elsa and Kristoff.

Olaf’s Summer Cool Down – Several times each day, the Ambassador of Hollywoodland brings Olaf and some of his friends to the Event Stage to have a little fun with everyone “In Summer.” And as temperatures heat up, Olaf happily shares a burst from his personal snow cloud to cool things off.

“Coolest Summer Ever” Dance Party – Once the sun goes down, a dance party takes over the area around the Event Stage, with DJ Chill and some of your favorite Disney characters. Using a special event hashtag, you can share song requests and photos over social media, to be featured onscreen during the party.

“Frozen” Fireworks – As the night comes to a close, Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf come together at the Event Stage for a grand finale to the day’s festivities, kicking off an awe-inspiring fireworks display set to the glorious music of “Frozen” and, of course, a flurry of snow!


The Magic Kingdom's "it's a small world" is scheduled to be closing for a short refurbishment in April.
The ride will close on April 14 through to April 17.

Space Mountain in the Magic Kingdom will also be closing for a 4 day refurbishment in April 2015.

The refurbishment begins on April 20 through to April 23.
