Characters in Flights at Disney Springs will be closing for a redesign.

The tethered balloon attraction will close on January 9 through January 13.

Part of the refurbishment will include a brand new look for the balloon, complete with a new color scheme. The original Characters in Flight was designed for Downtown Disney, and it is expected that the new look will be more closely aligned with the Disney Springs look.

Disney has announced that Choza Tequila will be opening soon at Epcot's Mexico Pavilion.
The outdoor tequileria will be located near the Mexico pavilion, offering hand-crafted margaritas and classic Mexican cuisine like tacos, empanadas, chips and fresh guacamole.

With the opening of the expanded Norway Pavilion last year, the original Margarita stand was closed. Choza Tequila appears to be the replacement, with an expanded menu.

Florida Resident Discover Disney Tickets are back on sale this year, at a reduced price from 2016.
Beginning today through June 5, 2017, Florida residents can purchase Discover Disney tickets and enjoy 3 days of park fun for $139, plus tax.

A fourth day can be added for $20 more, plus tax. Valid for admission to one park per day. Tickets must be used between January 4 and June 9, 2017.

Blackout dates apply, and tickets can be purchased online.

Two of the stores near to the main entrance at Disney's Hollywood Studios will be closing for lengthy refurbishments.

The Darkroom and Cover Story on Hollywood Blvd are located next-door to each other and will close on January 9 through March 23.

Ears the News: September 27, 2019 Edition

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…
