Ears the News: March 23, 2018 Edition


Welcome to the latest edition of Ears the News

Brought to you by our friends at WDWMagic.com.


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.

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

Resort Highlight: Disney’s Riviera Resort

Disney’s Riviera Resort opened in December 2019, so it’s just been open for over a year. The beautiful resort is themed to Walt Disney’s travels through Europe and his love of the French and Italian Riviera. The special touches like a library, bistro, terraces, and manicured grounds at this resort invoke a feeling of being in such a place. The Riviera is considered a Disney Vacation Club property, and as such it offers only villa accommodations, including a Tower Studio that sleeps two, a Deluxe Studio that sleeps five, a One-Bedroom Villa that sleeps five, a Two-Bedroom Villa that sleeps nine, and a Three-Bedroom Villa that sleeps 12. One of my favorite things about the Villas are how the smaller rooms – particularly the Deluxe Studio – can comfortably accommodate a family of five. In addition to a queen bed, there is also a queen pull-down murphy-style bed as well as a twin pull-down bed. There is plenty of sitting room for the daytime once these beds are folded in, including a table
