Splash Mountain's annual refurbishment is much shorter than usual in 2016, with just 4 days of downtime in the New Year. The refurbishment begins on January 10 through to January 14 2016.

Peter Pan's Flight at the Magic Kingdom will be closing for a short refurbishment in early November 2015. The closure begins on November 2 and runs through to November 7 2015.

The bridge linking Aruba and Jamaica to Old Port Royale food court and shops is currently closed for refurbishment.

The work began on September 5, and will continue through to November 26 2015. If you are staying in Jamaica or Aruba, you will be able to use a shuttle from 6:30 AM to 12:30 AM daily, with pickups every 20 minutes from the parking lot area.
A boat will also be available from 9:00 AM to dusk, with service from the Barefoot Bay Bike Works to the Aruba beach.

Disney is about to begin a major new national marketing campaign for both Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort.

'Unforgettable Happens Here' is the main message, and will make extensive use of Social Media, highlighting moments that families and friends share together in the parks.
Look out for the first commercials airing this week on Disney's TV channels, including ABC and Disney Channel.

The new campaign will replace the 'Disney Side' message from the past few years.

Here are two videos from Disney Parks.

The new boat dock is located between the recently opened Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar and Paradiso 37.
Service to Disney's Saratoga Springs Springs and Disney's Old Key West Resort is available from 10:30 AM to 11:30 PM. Water Taxi service to the West Side and Marketplace is available from 9:00 PM to 1:30 AM.
Transport to Port Orleans Resort continues to be available from the Marketplace Dock.

The technical problems affecting Summit Plummet and Slush Gusher at Disney's Blizzard Beach appear to be more complex than originally thought.

After a series of closures, both Summit Plummet and Slush Gusher are now to remain closed through to the end of the season on October 3 2015.  The park closes for its annual refurbishment from October 4 2015, and will continue to operate as normal until then.
The problems began on Friday, which closed the entire park, and although the park reopened on Saturday, Summit Plummet and Slush Gusher remained closed.

Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for.
