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.

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.
