Ears the News: December 16, 2017 Edition


Welcome to the latest edition of Ears the News

The Magic Kingdom's Enchanted Tales with Belle is no longer part of morning Extra Magic Hours.

The guest-participation show featuring characters from Beauty and the Beast was removed from evening Extra Magic Hours in November 2015.

Disney has unveiled a major new version of My Disney Experience, available now for Android devices.

V4 of My Disney Experience follows the look and feel of the Disneyland app, opening directly into the park map and wait times. The previous main menu has been replaced by swiping up on the character icon, which then exposes the dashboard and all of the apps functions.

iOS users will see a similar update early in 2017 when V4 of My Disney Experience debuts on the Apple platform.

The Magic Kingdom's Walt Disney World Railroad refurbishment scheduled for early 2017 has been extended.

The closure begins on January 9 and was originally scheduled to be closed through to February 16. The closure has now been extended to March 2, 2017.

The Piano Pool at Disney's All-Star Music Resort is closed for refurbishment.

The pool is expected to be closed through February 3, 2017. The Calypso Pool will remain open as normal during the work.

Disney's Animal Kingdom will be adding additional entertainment for the busy Christmas week, starting with Donald's Happy Holiday-O-Saurus Dance Party.

The character dance party will take place from December 18 - 31 2016 in DinoLand U.S.A.

Donald and Friends will not be at their regular charter meet and greet locations during the dance parties.

Stitch's Great Escape! at the Magic Kingdom will return to operation this weekend.

The Tomorrowland attraction will operate from 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM, December 17 2016 to January 2, 2017.

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…

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…
