August 6, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

Disney’s Grand Floridian Spa will close its doors September 19, 2011 for renovation and reconstruction. It is scheduled to reopen 18 months later, in the spring of 2013. Rumor has it that the construction project at the Grand Floridian will be the newest addition to the Disney Vacation Club.

Guests who wouldn’t dream of a Disney vacation without visiting a world-class spa can still book treatments at the Spa at the Saratoga Springs Resort.

HOT HOT HOT

Summer is here and if you are at any of the Walt Disney World theme parks you know what HOT is.

Disney World July 2010 Updates

June 30, 2010 by · 1 Comment 

Epcot Character Spot

Confirmed Character Changes:

  • DAK’s Good Times Gathering Spot is home to an interactive character experience this summer; June 13th-August 7th, 10:00a-3:00p daily.
  • Power Rangers are leaving DHS on August 8th.
  • Vidia is going to start making appearances at Pixie Hollow in August.
  • Duffy the Disney Bear is going to start making appearances at Epcot in September.

Rumored Character Changes:

  • Rapunzel, Mother Gothel and Flynn are expected to start making appearances in the Magic Kingdom in October.
  • Phineas and Ferb have already made appearances in the Christmas Parade, a Disney 365 spot, and at the WDW Marathon, so when are they going to be available in the parks? Not this fiscal year. Disney has recognized the demand for these popular boys, but do not expect to see them until FY2011.
  • Perry the Platypus and Agent Oso have popped up as characters, but no sign at WDW.

Fantasyland Expansion:

  • Mickey and Minnie are moving to Exposition Hall once Toontown closes (announced for spring 2011). No word on if this will become their permanent greeting location, but most indicators point to yes.
  • Princesses are moving to Exposition Hall as well. Once the Fantasyland Forest is complete, the princesses and fairies will move to their appropriate locations.
  • Ariel is appearing in the Adventureland Veranda with Prince Eric. Once the Fantasyland Forest is complete, Ariel will move to her new grotto.
  • Pooh and Tigger are moving to Town Square. No final word on if the new Fantasyland Forest will include the 100 Acre Woods.
  • Fairies are moving somewhere once Toontown closes, possibly a different park. They will probably not fit in Expo hall as initially announced, more information to come.

Shows and Parades:

  • Disney’s Electrical Parade (DEP) has returned to the Magic Kingdom, the currect expected end date is August 14th.
  • The Hoedown has transformed into a Flash Mob in Frontierland! This change occurred on February 26th.
  • The Pirate Tutorial is performing on a new stage in Adventureland! The stage was tested in summer 2009, but has become permanent as of January 5th.
  • Tiana’s Showboat Jubilee was discontinued after January 3rd with little momentum to support a possible return.
  • Totally Tomorrowland Christmas was considered a success in 2009 so there is a strong indication it will be back in 2010!
