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 The previous main menu has been replaced by swiping up on the character icon, which then exposes the dashboard and all of the apps functions.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

Royal Caribbean - Taste of Sabor Experience

I recently sailed on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's Liberty of the Seas for my Honeymoon.  The trip itself was quite amazing, but we had a special dinner at Sabor that wasn't on any pre-planning options.  While at dinner at the Chef's Table earlier in our cruise, a nice gentleman from Sabor came by and told us about a similar experience they were trying out at that restaurant.  Of course we decided we had to give it a try! We got the menu to look over and our host for the night came to greet us and go through what to expect etc. This was a new thing they were trying, so we didn't really know much about it going in other than "if you liked the Chef Table, come try this!" He was wonderful, and we had a great time with him. We were at a big table off to the side as you went in (our whole Chef's Table party decided to go for this, so we were old friends at this point!) The table was semi-private, but still somewhat part of the normal dining area so we could pee

Topolino's Terrace Breakfast Review

Breakfast at Topolino's has been getting quite the hype since it opened, so I was thrilled when I snagged a reservation with my fellow Agent Maci on our trip to celebrate Magic Kingdom's 50th birthday. This restaurant is located on the 10th floor of Disney's Riviera Resort, the newest to open on Walt Disney World property. The d├ęcor is modern and bright, with floor to ceiling windows and a balcony to continue to take in the views right outside. Breakfast is a character dining experience, with Mickey and friends being dressed in their artsy best! Park attire is welcome, but you could just as easily get a little fancy and feel comfortable. We were told it would be about 10 minutes so we went to the bar where I ordered a Bellini and Maci got a Mimosa, light on the OJ! The excellent bartender barely had time to make our drinks before our table was ready. We were quickly greeted by our server Chris from Orlando and we're pretty sure we found the OG! For
