To preview, purchase and download your Frozen Ever After photo, you must be wearing a MagicBand during your ride. Your photo will be automatically associated to your My Disney Experience account, where it can be viewed at MyDisneyPhotoPass.com or in the My Disney Experience mobile app alongside all of your images from Disney PhotoPass Service.
Images can be purchased individually, or can be included as part of the Memory Maker package.

Wheelchairs will no longer be complimentary at Disney's water parks.

Like at its main theme parks, Disney is to begin charging for wheelchair use at its water parks.

Both Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach now charge $12, with a $100 refundable deposit, which is returned once the rental is completed.

The new policy makes the wheelchair rental process consistent across all of the Walt Disney World Resort properties.

Beginning August 28, 2016, there will be a new direct bus service from all Walt Disney World theme parks to Disney Springs from 4:00 PM to 11:00 PM (or until 2 hours following park close, whichever is earlier) daily.

The new service is one-way only, meaning to return to a theme park, guests will need to first go to a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, and then transfer to a park bus from there.

Disney Springs recently opened its new bus terminal, which has much more capacity than the old Downtown Disney stops, and drops guests off right in the center of Disney Springs.


There will be a number of changes to the bus system at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort beginning on August 29th.

A new internal bus service will begin running on August 29th. This dedicated bus will now run internally, stopping at the seven bus stops approximately every 20 minutes.

A new route will be added that will run directly from the Congress Park stop to the Typhoon Lagoon water park.

Lastly, bus service to Disney Springs is being discontinued. Guests being able to choose to take the Sassagoula River Cruise water taxi from the boat dock, or take the walkway from Congress Park.
