Ears the News with Richard

Ears the News is brought to you courtesy of our friends at WDWMagic.com.

Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party has already sold out for Halloween night on October 31 2015. While Halloween always seems to sell out, this comes 3 weeks earlier than it did last year. We also saw a lot of odd dates selling out last year so if you plan on attending Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, but your tickets sooner rather than later.

Breakfast at  the Be Our Guest Restaurant  in Magic Kingdom will become a permanent offering. Reservations for October 4th and beyond began earlier this week.

The price has increased from the original $19.99 plus tax for adults to $21.99, and $11.99 plus tax for ages 3 - 9 to $13.99.

Pizzafari at Disney's Animal Kingdom is set to close for a refurbishment later this month. The closure is planned to start on August 24, through to October 19 2015.

The closure is likely to be connected to the addition of a full table service component to the restaurant, expected to open later this year.

Primeval Whirl is closing for a 3 month refurbishment later this month at Disney's Animal Kingdom Dinoland U.S.A. The spinning coaster is scheduled to close on August 17 through to November 12 2015.

The Flying Fish Cafe at Disney's BoardWalk resort will be undergoing a major refurbishment in early 2016. The closure will begin on February 1 2016, lasting through to November 2016.
During the closure, both the kitchen and dining room will be renovated, although no changes to the concept of the restaurant are planned.

Disney has announced the holiday line-up for the Magic Kingdom, which sees a return of last year's favorite - 'A Frozen Holiday Wish.'

Debuting to large crowds last year, 'A Frozen Holiday Wish' features Queen Elsa transforming Cinderella Castle into a shimmering ice palace, complete with spectacular lighting and firework effects.

Also returning this year is the 'Jingle Cruise' holiday overly to the Jungle Cruise, and of course, the already announced Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party on select days from Nov 8 to Dec 18 2015.


The hard ticket event features special holiday entertainment including Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas! Dance Party, 'Celebrate the Season' musical stage show starring favorite Disney characters, and “Holiday Wishes: Celebrate the Spirit of the Season” fireworks spectacular.

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
