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 The previous main menu has been replaced by swiping up on the character icon, which then exposes the dashboard and all of the apps functions.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

Exciting Disney World Activities Outside of the Parks

Have you ever wondered what there is to do around The Walt Disney World Resort beside visit the Theme Parks or shop at Disney Springs? There are so many great recreational activities right on property. If your family is ready to step outside the parks and see what other fun excursions are offered, check out this list of ideas: Golf Tee off at one of Disney’s three award winning, Arnold Palmer designed, 18-hole courses - Disney’s Lake Buena Vista, Disney’s Magnolia, or Disney’s Palm Golf Course. Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course is a 9-hole course which is great for families or beginners. Golf instructional clinics are available for both adults and juniors, as well as personal lessons with a PGA qualified instructor.  The use of a golf cart is included in your greens fee for the 3 large courses. Oak Trail is a walking course. Want to get a quick game in on the back 9 before heading to the Parks? Reserve the "Sunrise 9" option, and breakfast is included! Reservations: 407

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could
