Ears the News with Richard

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.

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…

During the work, the walkway alongside the castle is restricted, and the crane may be visible from Main Street U.S.A.

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…
