Ears the News: September 22, 2017 Edition


Welcome to the latest edition of Ears the News

Brought to you by our friends at WDWMagic.com.


Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground is back open following a near two week closure for Hurricane Irma. Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue and Mickey’s Backyard BBQ have also reopened.

A lengthy clean-up job of the resort's landscaping and uprooted trees meant a longer closure than other impacted Disney resorts on the coast.

Typhoon Lagoon has reopened today following a week long closure due to the impacts of Hurricane Irma.
Blizzard Beach opened earlier in the week, but the additional landscaping at Typhoon lagoon has taken longer to recover.

The Savannah Bee Company has moved from its former kiosk location into a new store location in The Landing at Disney Springs.

Taking over the space from the now closed Sound Lion, the Savannah Bee Company offers all-natural honeybee-inspired body and beauty products alongside artisanal honey.

The Honey bar offers a variety of honey flavors, including a sampling area where you can try everything on offer.

Savannah Bee Company is located across from Jock Lindsay's Hangar Bar next to The Ganachery, and is open Sunday - Thursday 10:00 am to 11:00 pm, Friday - Saturday 10:00 am to 11:30 pm.

Vince Camuto in the Town Center at Disney Springs is now permanently closed. The chain is in the process of closing all of its stores across the country, and as a result the Disney Springs location was forced to close.

Disney has announced that the Epcot International Festival of the Arts will take place from January 12 to February 19 in 2018.

Like last year, the event will run for 5 weeks, bringing together the visual, culinary and performing arts.

Pros of the Disney Skyliner

Disney’s Skyliner, a gondola system connecting several resorts and two theme parks, opened a little over a year ago in September 2019. Before its opening, resorts on the Disney World Monorail, which connects three deluxe resorts and their related villas with two theme parks, were considered the most coveted accommodations … but has that changed now that the Skyliner is here? I recently stayed at Disney’s Riviera Resort, which features a Skyliner station with direct access to the back entrance of Epcot as well as the BoardWalk area and the Yacht & Beach Club. In the other direction, passing through the hub next door at Caribbean Beach Resort allows for access to the front entrance of Hollywood Studios in minutes. Other resorts with Skyliner stations include Art of Animation and Pop Century, which in my opinion raises the value of these Value Resorts. The ability to get to so many resort areas for shopping and dining is a bonus. The continuous cycle of Skyliner gondolas means the lin

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

Can a Disney Vacation Be Educational?

Travel is one of the most educational life experiences to give a child. A trip to Walt Disney World is no different. Disney Parks attractions are interesting, educational, and fun at the same time! There are valuable learning opportunities for your children in every subject area. For geography buffs, there are entire countries to explore. Get hands-on, in depth experience from around the world in Epcot’s World Showcase. Epcot offers cool "Kidcot" stops for extra learning fun! Children can try food and drinks from other countries, and even meet Cast Members from those actual countries who come to work at Disney. Your child will also see the different architecture and dress, hear languages and music, and taste foods of many different cultures. Canada Far And Wide and Reflections of China are Circle-Vision 360° movies at the Canada and China Pavilions. These take the viewer on a tour of the natural beauty and historical structures and buildings of these countries.  For thos
