Ears the News: December 16, 2017 Edition


Welcome to the latest edition of Ears the News

Brought to you by our friends at WDWMagic.com.


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 The previous main menu has been replaced by swiping up on the character icon, which then exposes the dashboard and all of the apps functions.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.

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. 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. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

You Must Be This Tall to Ride... Universal Orlando Resort Edition

Universal Orlando Resort has branded itself as the more grown-up vacation destination in central Florida. With advertising campaigns like "kids grow up, so do vacations" and "grow bolder", it should be no surprise that there are many attractions at the Universal Theme Parks with height requirements.  If you're visiting the Universal Orlando Theme Parks with little ones, it's very important to familiarize yourself with the ride height requirements so you know which attractions your little ones can, and can't ride, based on their height. You'll find these helpful signs with height requirements for all of the attractions when you enter the Universal Orlando Theme Parks. Universal Studios Florida 34 inches - E.T. Adventure 36 inches - Woody Woodpecker's Nuthouse Coaster 40 inches - Despicable Me Minion Mayhem 40 inches - Fast & Furious - Supercharged 40 inches - Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon 40 inches - The Simpsons Ride 40 inches -

Toledo Review - A Tale of Two Tapas

I have dined at Toledo twice. Shortly after Grand Destino Tower at Disney’s Coronado Springs opened in 2019, I ate there with my mom, and most recently with my fellow agent Maci during our visit for Magic Kingdom’s 50th Anniversary. Located on the 16th floor, the atmosphere at this dinner only restaurant is just lovely. Floor to ceiling windows with tasteful d├ęcor offer lots of light. You will get a view of all the parks, but some are certainly better than others depending on which area of the restaurant you dine in. Even if you aren’t facing the windows, the ambiance of the orange and pink stain glass on the ceiling and greenery from the trees in the restaurant are a welcome sight. Toledo is self described as serving Tapas, Steak, and Seafood. I ended up only ordering tapas and drinks both times I dined here. On my first visit, my mom and I weren’t too hungry and on my most recent visit, they were unable to serve us the special 50th Anniversary dish because it was technically the da
