Disney is opening a new 'DisneyStyle' store in the West Side at Disney Springs later this Spring.

Opening in May 2018, the store will offer a curated assortment of fashion forward products, from

Spirit Jerseys with nods to Disney Princesses to playful headwear with a Disney twist.

You'll be able to create stylish outfits perfect for visiting Disney Parks by mixing and matching fun shirts with accessories such as handbags, headbands, hats, socks, and more.

'DisneyStyle' will be located in the former Harley Davidson store just across from Starbucks. Harley Davidson moved to a new location in the Town Center.



The new auction scene is now playing in Pirates of the Caribbean, which sees the famous redhead take on a new role in the iconic attractions, joining the ranks of the pirates.

The pirate auctioneer now oversees a sale of the townspeople’s most prized possessions and goods. In this scene, the familiar redhead figure has switched sides to become a pirate named Redd, who’s just pillaged the town’s rum supply and has something to say about it.

Disney's Design-a-Tee in the Marketplace at Disney Springs is set to close later this month.

The custom t-shirt store that opened in late 2008, presented by Hanes, allows guests to create custom shirts from over 400 images and apply their own text.

Hanes became a sponsor at Walt Disney World back in 2007, and we understand that the sponsorship agreement has now come to end, resulting in the closure of the store. The apparel company also sponsors Rock 'n' Roller Coaster at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

German pop-rock band Durch & Durch are coming soon to Epcot's Germany pavilion.

The new act is set to appear Fridays through Tuesdays from March 30, 2018. Groovin' Alps, the current act, will have its last performance on March 27.

Here is a look at Durch & Durch performing live at Domforum Köln.

Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort is once again offering its "Return to Sleepy Hollow" experience, which includes a group viewing of the 1949 Disney animated classic film "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" inside the resort's historic Tri-Circle-D Ranch stables.

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.

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…
