Ears the News: March 18, 2017 Edition


Welcome to the latest edition of Ears the News

Brought to you by our friends at WDWMagic.com.


Miss Adventure Falls, Disney's newest water park attraction is officially open at Typhoon Lagoon.

The family raft ride tells the story of Captain Mary Oceaneer, a treasure-hunter whose collection and ship now reside here after a rogue typhoon swept them to shore.

Miss Adventure Falls features two firsts for a Disney water park ride - a conveyor lift to the top of the ride, and an audio animatronic figure. Check out the video below for a first look at the new attraction courtesy of our friends at WDWMagic.com

Celebration at the Top has been extended through until September 24, 2017 at Disney's Contemporary Resort.

Originally announced in February and lasting through to March 26, Celebration at the Top costs $99 per person plus tax and gratuity, and includes canapés, a selection of sushi, a selection of flatbreads and other small plates. A complimentary bar offering craft beers, California wines, cordials and coffee will also be available.

Following the food and drink in one of the California Grill's banquet rooms, comes a viewing of the Magic Kingdom's Wishes fireworks show.

To conclude the night, petit four desserts are available in the private banquet room.

Reservations can be made now on select Sundays through September 24, 2017 via 407-WDW-DINE. Valet parking is included with the cost.

The Marketplace Co-Op at Disney Springs will soon open The Dress Shop, offering a collection of Disneybounding outfits.

In a posting by Steven Miller on the official Disney Parks Blog, Disney Parks merchandiser Donna Sorrow said, “We designed The Dress Shop collection for guests who want to emulate their favorite Disney characters or theme park attractions in a fun, retro way. These items aren’t costumes, rather the collection contains perfect outfits for guests who have a passion for Disney style.”

“The dress styles are classic in design and contain incredible little details,” continued Donna. “Yet all the styles have modern fits which make them wonderful outfits to wear when visiting Disney Parks.”

Outfits include nods to Disney attractions such as Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room, “it’s a small world,” The Haunted Mansion, and the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

The entire collection at The Dress Shop on Cherry Tree Lane opens inside the accessories boutique at the Marketplace Co-Op in Disney Springs on March 31 2017. Some items will also be available mid-April at the Magic Kingdom, but will not be sold online or in the Shop Disney Parks app.

BB-8 is coming to Star Wars Launch Bay next month, and Hong Kong Disneyland has given us a first look at what we can expect.

Chris Lannuzzi, Puppet Master for Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Creative Entertainment, has just posted this video of the new experience on his Facebook page. Click here to view the video on Facebook.

BB-8 will appear from April 14, 2017, beginning on the first Star Wars Galactic Nights event. Kylo Ren and Chewbacca, who are currently available for meet and greets, will continue to appear at Launch Bay.

Daisy Duck is back meeting and greeting guests at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Daisy is meeting along with Donald Duck in front of Sid Cahuenga’s One-of-a-Kind near the main entrance.

Both have separate queues, giving you the option of which Duck you'd like to meet.

Disney has released another preview video showcasing the upcoming Pandora - The World of Avatar.

In this video, we get a close-up look at the Pandora Valley of Mo'ara landscape, and take a ride on the Na'vi River Journey.

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 décor 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
