Ears the News with Richard

Disney's Animal Kingdom is shuffling two of its character meet and greets beginning May 24 2015.
Tarzan will be meeting guests on the Discovery Island Trail, near to the Cotton Top Tamarin exhibit at the Tree of Life.
Pocahontas will be moving from that location and heading to the Discovery Island Character Landing, with the entrance just opposite the Flame Tree Barbecue.

Disney looks to be moving ahead with plans to add waterside Disney vacation Club villas to the Wilderness Lodge Resort.
Permits and plans have been filed with the South Florida Water Management District showing a series of one story lodging buildings to the east and west of the Lodge fronting onto Bay Lake. Also included with the project are new restaurants and recreation buildings (also one story) together with new pools and upgrades to existing pools.
Wilderness Lodge already has a DVC component to the resort, so this will further add to that inventory and continues to expand the DVC presence at Walt Disney World.

Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort will be introducing brunch from May 31 2015.

To include brunch, breakfast operating hours will be extended to 2:30 PM, with brunch menu items added to the buffet from 11:30 AM. Breakfast will continue to be served from 7:00 PM, with the new

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could

Star Wars : Rise of the Resistance is an attraction like we've never seen before with multiple ride systems and is a truly thrilling, one of a kind experience. No spoilers here (aside from some pictures), but this attraction is absolutely amazing! Unfortunately, it can also be challenging to actually get to experience. Rise of the Resistance is currently the only Walt Disney World attraction that requires guests to join a virtual queue. There is no standby line, FastPass+ or Single Rider Line available at this time.
