An update to the Walt Disney World website now allows changes to be made to existing dining reservations.
Previously, any changes to seating date/time, and number of guests had to be done over the phone or by cancelling and starting over. The new website functionality allows these to be changed online up to 20 minutes before the reservation.
The new feature is currently only available on the website, and not on the My Disney Experience apps.

Disney has filed permits with the South Florida Water Management district for an expansion to the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex.
The plans call for a new multi-story building located behind the Josten's Center, adding 286,000 sq ft of space, using a 179,000 sq ft footprint. This is a significant addition, with the existing Josten's Center being 70,000 sq ft.
Also part of the plans is a new parking lot, located on the right hand side of the complex behind Jostens Center.

Ahead of the upcoming major remodel of the Flying Fish Cafe, more changes have been announced for Disney's BoardWalk.
Seashore Sweets will permanently close on February 1 2016. Located next door to Flying Fish Cafe, the old fashioned store sells cookies, salt water taffy, crisp rice treats, chocolates, candies, ice cream, and candy gifts.
Also now permanently closed is the Yard Arcade and ESPN retail store, located between The ESPN Club and the BoardWalk Bakery.
Disney has not yet revealed what will be replacing the closed stores, but the location of Seashore Sweets would perhaps suggest it will be used to expand Flying Fish Cafe. That refurbishment is expected to be complete in November 2016.

"The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60" TV special will include a preview of the new Star Wars themed lands coming to Walt Disney World and the Disneyland Resort.

Harrison Ford, who plays the part of Han Solo in the Star Wars movies will present the preview, which promises to reveal new details about the huge Star wars expansions on both the east and west coasts.
"The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60," hosted by Dancing With the Stars pro dancer Derek Hough will air on Sunday February 21 2016 at 8pm EST on ABC.

Also confirmed to be part of the show are Elton John, Josh Gad, Witney Carson, and a live orchestra performing the music of John Williams.
