Disney After Hours and Candlelight Processional: How to Book and More
<p><strong>Disney After Hours Events Return in January at Walt Disney World Resort!<br></strong><br></p><p>Disney After Hours events will return to Walt Disney World starting in January 2023, with the kick off on January 4, 2023 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and January 9 at Magic Kingdom Park. </p><p><br>Disney After Hours are separately ticketed events that give you access to the park for three extra hours after regular park closing. You get free ice cream, popcorn and select beverages with your tickets. Tickets are limited for these events, which theoretically means lower wait times for attractions. But in our experience, this is not always the case -- so don't bank on that. "Limited" is a vague descriptor and we have routinely seen wait times of 30 to 45 minutes for popular rides. So that's a big chunk of your three hours.</p><p>With Disney After Hours tickets, you can enter the park as early as 7:00 p.m., which gives you a little extra bang for your buck. You won't get the free snacks until the event begins at park closing, but at least you can get in a little earlier if you like.</p><p>Disney After Hours event tickets for Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios can be purchased by starting October 7, 2022. Prices range from $129 to $159 (plus tax). Guests of select Walt Disney World Resort hotels can begin purchasing Disney After Hours tickets as early as October 4. The advance-purchase window is available to Guests of Disney Resort hotels, Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels as well as Shades of Green at Walt Disney World Resort. </p><p>Disney Vacation Club members and Walt Disney World Annual Passholders can also purchase specially priced tickets for select dates.</p><p>Disney After Hours events at Disney’s Hollywood Studios are scheduled for select nights from January 4 through April 19, 2023. Disney After Hours events at Magic Kingdom Park are scheduled for select nights, January 9 through March 27, 2023. For the full list of events, dates and times, and to purchase tickets, visit the Disney After Hours page of DisneyWorld.com. </p><p>--</p><p><strong>EPCOT ‘Candlelight Processional’ Celebrity Narrators<br></strong><br></p><p>The popular, festive and very moving “Candlelight Processional” is returning to the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays starting November 25, 2022. This tradition has been a part of the holiday season at Walt Disney World since its opening in 1971. If you have never been and you love the holiday season, it's something worth considering. </p><p>You will experience a heart warming retelling of the traditional Christmas story featuring celebrity narrators, the Voices of Liberty acapella ensemble, and a 50-piece live orchestra with large choirs.</p><p>The 2022 line-up of celebrity narrators features new and returning favorites, including actors from some of your favorite movies, TV shows, world-renowned singers, and other talented artists. </p><p>Here is the list of narrators for the 2022 Candlelight Processional at EPCOT:</p><ul> <li>11/25 – 11/26: Simu Liu</li> <li>11/27 – 11/29: Edward James Olmos</li> <li>11/30 – 12/1: Raul Esparza (NEW)</li> <li>12/2 – 12/3: Whoopi Goldberg</li> <li>12/4 – 12/6: Isabella Rossellini</li> <li>12/7 – 12/9: Daymond John</li> <li>12/10 – 12/12: Josh Gad (NEW)</li> <li>12/13 – 12/14: Gloria Estefan (NEW)</li> <li>12/15 – 12/18: Neil Patrick Harris</li> <li>12/19 – 12/20: Mariska Hargitay (NEW)</li> <li>12/21 – 12/23: Cal Ripken Jr.</li> <li>12/24 – 12/26: Marie Osmond</li> <li>12/27 – 12/28: Courtney Vance</li> <li>12/29 – 12/30: Angela Bassett</li> </ul><p>Seating is free, but you can secure a spot at the show by booking a “Candlelight Processional” Dining Package (similar to Fantasmic). Packages went on sale on October 6, 2022 and you can get full details by visiting <a href="https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/events-tours/epcot/holiday-festival/?CMP=ILC-DPFY22Q4wo0922220021A">EPCOTholidays.com</a>. </p><p><br>--</p><p><strong>Thank You for Listening to the Disney Travel Podcast<br></strong><br>Thank you very much for listening to this episode, Amelia and I hope that you enjoyed it.

EPCOT 40th Anniversary Celebrations plus MagicBand+ at Disneyland
<p><strong>EPCOT Turns 40 on October 1, 2022</strong></p><p><br>EPCOT wasn't always a park that was slated for success. A quick look back at the creation of Disney's first park not modelled after a Magic Kingdom.</p><p><br>--</p><p><br><strong>EPCOT 40th Anniversary Merchandise Revealed<br></strong><br></p><p>The new EPCOT 40th Anniversary Collection is available for purchase as of October 1, 2022, with additional items arriving throughout the month. The collection features retro and nostalgic designs that offer a wide variety of merchandise for the entire family. </p><p>Initial reactions among fans have been mixed. This commemorative merchandise will be available at Creations Shop in EPCOT at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Select items will also be available on shopDisney.com.</p><p>--</p><p><strong>Foodie Guide to EPCOT 40th Anniversary Celebrations<br></strong><br></p><p>From the very beginning, EPCOT has always had a food component through World Showcase.</p><p>So it's only fitting that there's a foodie guide to accompany EPCOT 40th Anniversary Celebrations (including our top picks).</p><p><strong>Connections Café </strong><em>(Available Sept. 29 through Oct. 3) </em></p><ul><li>EPCOT 40th Liege Waffle: Brioche dough with pearl sugar  <strong><em>&gt; Amelia's Pick</em></strong> </li></ul><p><strong>Chozo de Margarita </strong><em>(Available beginning Sept. 30 while supplies last) </em></p><ul><li>40th Fiesta: Frozen margarita in a “MEXICO 40” souvenir cup</li></ul><p><strong>Funnel Cake </strong><em>(Available Oct. 1 and 2) </em></p><ul><li>Celebration Funnel Cake with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, sprinkles, and 40th candies <strong><em>&gt; Amelia's Pick</em></strong> </li></ul><p><strong>Garden House </strong><em>(Available Sept. 29 through Oct. 3) </em></p><ul><li>Sake Cocktail Flight featuring Samurai, Mt. Fuji, Tokyo Sunset, and Violet Sake  <strong><em>&gt; Mike's Pick</em></strong> </li></ul><p><strong>La Hacienda de San Angel and San Angel Inn </strong><em>(Available beginning Sept. 30 while supplies last)</em></p><ul> <li>Flan: Vanilla custard topped with blueberries, whipped cream, and a “MEXICO 40” white chocolate garnish</li> <li>Clarified Margarita: Tequila, orange liqueur, lemon, simple syrup,“MEXICO 40” cup &amp; glow cube</li> </ul><p><strong>Nine Dragons Restaurant </strong><em>(Available Sept. 29 through Oct. 3) </em></p><ul><li>Dan Dan Noodles: Spicy pork, Sichuan sauce, peanut butter, sesame, cucumber, and green onion<strong> </strong> </li></ul><p><strong>Space 220 Restaurant </strong><em>(Available Sept. 29 through Oct. 3) </em></p><ul><li>Crema Catalana: Vanilla cream custard, lemon snow, citrus segments, and spicy ginger crumble<strong>  </strong><strong><em>&gt; Mike's Pick</em></strong> </li></ul><p><strong>Sunshine Seasons </strong><em>(Available Sept. 29 through Oct. 3; Mobile order available)</em></p><ul><li>Figment Sponge Cake with honey-lime mousse</li></ul><p><strong>Teppan Edo </strong><em>(Available Sept. 29 through Oct. 3) </em></p><ul><li>EPCOT 40th Saketini: The saketini was on the menu when the Japan Pavilion first opened. This version combines sake and butterfly pea flower to recreate the night sky of EPCOT</li></ul><p><strong>Tokyo Dining </strong><em>(Available Sept. 29 through Oct. 3) </em></p><ul> <li>EPCOT 40th Kaisen Chirashi Don: Celebration sushi bowl</li> <li>EPCOT 40th Saketini: The saketini was on the menu when the Japan Pavilion first opened. This combines sake and butterfly pea flower to create a color reminiscent of the EPCOT night sky</li> </ul><p>--</p><p><strong>MagicBand+ Coming to Disneyland Resort this Fall<br></strong><br></p><p>While MagicBand+ offers very little in terms of innovative new experiences, Disney fans have still been snapping them up to try them out at Walt Disney World.</p><p>With MagicBand+ launching soon at Disneyland, will there be anything different or better in terms of features and experiences? The answer is, unfortunately, no. Here's what you can expect once MagicBand+ launches at Disneyland.</p><p>At launch, you'll be able to connect your MagicBand+ to theme park tickets or a Magic Key pass in the Disneyland and use it for Lightning Lane entrances. Disney PhotoPass photographers will also accept a tap of your band to link photos to your Disney account. All pretty basic and standard MagicBand functionality.</p><p>MagicBand+ will also offer its glow-with-the-show capability at Disneyland. Again, nothing special.</p><p>The <em>Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters</em> interactive quest has vibrations and lights from MagicBand+. This feature has, in our opinion, ruined the landscape of Galaxy's Edge by inserting very non-immersive screens throughout the land. Plus, users have encountered problems with this activity, particularly in terms of rapidly draining the MagicBand+ battery (rendering it useless as far as completing the mission).</p><p>Should you buy a MagicBand+ at Disneyland? The basic functionality of a MagicBand is good, but the enhancements are nothing special at all and not worth it in our opinion.</p><p><br>--</p><p><strong>Thank You for Listening to the Disney Travel Podcast<br></strong><br>Thank you very much for listening to this episode, Amelia and I hope that you enjoyed it.

D23 Expo: All the Disney Travel News (You Won't Believe What's Coming)
<p><strong>Everything New for Disney Parks and Resorts from D23 Expo 2022</strong></p><p> </p><p><strong>So What's Next for Disney Parks?</strong></p><p><strong><em>You won't believe what's coming behind Big Thunder Mountain at Walt Disney World</em></strong></p><p> </p><p>This is Disney's Blue Sky sneak peak of what's coming down the road for Disney Parks. This portion of the D23 Expo had the biggest cheer of anything announced in 2022.</p><p><br></p><p>First though, Josh D'Amaro announced what's happening with Dinoland at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. It has been languishing and looks forgotten so the announcement of a big transformation coming was welcome. Zootopia and Moana will share the space currently occupied by Dinoland. </p><p>But the biggest news of all...</p><p> <br><strong><em>Disney Villains are Finally Getting a Place to Call their Own</em></strong></p><p>Magic Kingdom will feature new frontiers and it's all hiding on the other side of BTM. The little town of Santa Cecilia will come to life as Coco gets a Magic Kingdom presence. And if you do want to talk about Bruno, you're in luck because you may be able to walk right into the Madrigal's casita. But all is not fun and flowers in this new land...as what if the Disney villains took up residence there as well...beyond Big Thunder Mountain.</p><p>This was presented as conceptual and would likely be 10 years down the road, but Disney would not share it in this way if it weren't going to happen. Big news for Walt Disney World and Magic Kingdom.</p><p> </p><p>--</p><p> </p><p><strong>There's More Coming to Walt Disney World<br></strong><br></p><p>A new nighttime show for EPCOT will debut in late 2023 to kick-off the 100th Anniversary of the Walt Disney Company.</p><p> </p><p>Moana's Journey of Water and the rest of the World Celebration area at EPCOT will open in late 2023. So we'll have to bear with those construction walls for another year it seems.</p><p><br></p><p>Figment is returning in a brand new form for a meet and greet at EPCOT. That will be in place by the end of 2023.</p><p> </p><p>In Magic Kingdom, the perennial favorite Hatbox Ghost will materialize once again in the Haunted Mansion.</p><p> </p><p>And we now know that Tron Lightcycle Run at Magic Kingdom will debut in Spring 2023. We were hoping it would be sooner, but apparently they are working on finishing touches right now. No specific date, just "spring." </p><p> </p><p>Finally, in 2023, a new version of  Happily Ever After will return as part of a new Magic Kingdom nighttime show. This received a good amount of applause.</p><p> <br><strong>What's New and Coming to Disneyland Resort</strong></p><p> </p><p>The DVC Villas at Disneyland Hotel will be called the Villas at Disneyland Hotel. How creative.</p><p> </p><p>On October 16, 2023 Disney 100 kicks-off and it promises to be the biggest celebration ever for Disney.</p><p> </p><p><em>Under the theme of a Boundless Future the following announcements were made:</em></p><p> </p><p>The Mandalorian and Grogu (aka Baby Yoda) will be onsite starting in Mid November 2022 at Disneyland Galaxy's Edge</p><p> </p><p>Over at the Avengers Campus in Disney California Adventure Park, Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, noted "we're just getting started." A new giant Hulk will be at Avengers Campus in California "next week." </p><p> </p><p>Plus, they're bringing the Multiverse to Avengers Campus. Disney is expanding the campus to include a new attraction. In the new attraction you will battle alongside all the Avengers against all the foes from anywhere. You will fight King Thanos. This is a new Thanos -- a Thanos who won. And the Avengers are not too happy about that and you have to help them. More news to come.</p><p> </p><p>Also new to Disney California Adventure, they are reimagining Pacific Wharf into San Fransokyo from Big Hero Six. You'll be able to meet Baymax there. </p><p> </p><p>Finally, they are reimagining Paradise Pier Hotel, as it will become Pixar Place Hotel. It will feature a Finding Nemo splash pad and more characters. All in all, Disney promises that the hotel will feel completely new.</p><p> </p><p>Over at Downtown Disney more than a dozen new or reimagined locations are in the works. More announcements coming over the next year. But the big news locally is a that SoCal favorite bakery Porto's is coming to Downtown Disney. </p><p> </p><p>RunDisney at Disneyland is coming back in 2024. More details coming soon. It's been awhile for Run Disney as the last one took place in 2017.</p><p> </p><p>Mickey's ToonTown Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway are coming along. It was good to hear that it will be a slightly different version of Runaway Railway than the WDW edition, to fit into the Disneyland ToonTown story. It's all opening in 2023.</p><p> </p><p>Tiana's Bayou Adventure will open in late 2024 in both Walt Disney World and Disneyland. The story for the ride is that it picks up where the film (Princess and the Frog) left off. In the new story, Princess Tiana is an entrepreneur and community leader in the year 1927. She is hosting a party for the community and we need to help Tiana to find a special ingredient that she's missing. </p><p> </p><p>Disney promises that the latest tech is being implemented to really enhance the outside of the whole area at night. Mist will be used like a painter's canvas. "True bayou magic." The attraction is to be a love letter to New Orleans. Guests should feel the story is authentic to the city. Another great piece of news is that the original cast will be lending their voices to the new attraction. </p><p><br></p><p><strong>--<br></strong><br></p><p><strong>What's new at</strong> <strong>Disney Cruise Line</strong></p><p> </p><p>The sixth ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet is all about adventure...celebrating Walt's love for exploration. The new Disney Cruise ship is called Disney Treasure.</p><p> </p><p>The Disney Wonder is heading to Australia and New Zealand late 2023.</p><p> </p><p>The island of Eleuthera and Lighthouse Point will be the new Bahamas port for Disney Cruise. 90% of the power will come from solar.</p><p><strong>What's Coming to Disney Parks Around the Globe</strong></p><p> </p><p>Zootopia is opening at Shanghai Disneyland. </p><p> </p><p>World of Frozen at Hong Kong Disneyland will open in the second half of 2023, featuring a Wandering Oaken sleigh coaster.</p><p> </p><p>Disneyland Paris' Frozen Arendelle land is coming along and Disneyland Hotel is being fully reimagined -- opening in 2024</p><p> </p><p>At Tokyo Disneyland, Disney Fantasy Spring will feature Peter Pan, Tangled and Frozen. Plus a totally reimagined Space Mountain will open by 2027 at Tokyo Disney.</p><p> </p><p>Pixar <em>We Belong Together</em> will be debuting at Walt Disney Studios Park at Disneyland Paris next year. The DLP 30th Anniversary celebrations will be continuing until September 2023.</p><p><br>--</p><p><strong>Thank You for Listening to the Disney Travel Podcast<br></strong><br>Thank you very much for listening to this episode, Amelia and I hope that you enjoyed it.

Disneyland Halloween Foodie Guide, Plus a New DVC Lounge
<p><strong>There's a New DVC Lounge Coming to Disneyland</strong></p><p><br>Disney Vacation Club announced the first Member Lounge coming to Disneyland Resort in California and it is expected to open in the first half of 2023. The lounge will be located in Tomorrowland and be called “Disney Vacation Club Star View Station.” </p><p>Located on the second floor of the Star Wars: Launch Bay building, the space-themed lounge will be home to a dedicated Disney Vacation Club Member Services team, plus lots of casual seating, complimentary Wi-Fi, device-charging stations and more.</p><p>Similar to the DVC lounge at EPCOT, the Disneyland lounge will be available to eligible Disney Vacation Club Members with valid park tickets and reservations to Disneyland Park, space permitting. </p><p>--</p><p> </p><p><strong>Is Disney Really Launching a Membership Program Like Amazon Prime<br></strong><br></p><p>Disney is reportedly planning to launch a new membership program loosely modeled after Amazon Prime that would offer discounts and perks for combining streaming services, theme park visits, resort hotel stays, merchandise purchases and more.</p><p>The Wall Street Journal reported on this, so there is some sense of reality behind it. The idea is that Disney would use the membership program to make it more attractive for guests and customers to increase spending on all its products and services. For Disney, it would give more consumer data as to your spending habits and more.</p><p>So would this mean the retirement of programs like D23? How would DVC and Annual Pass perks stack up against this?</p><p> </p><p>--</p><p><strong>Foodie Guide to Halloween Sweets and Treats at Disneyland Resort<br></strong><br></p><p>Halloween season is on now at Disneyland Resort!

A Disney World Park Pass Upgrade, No Mountain for Moana and More
<p><strong>Walt Disney World Park Pass Reservation System gets an Improvement<br></strong><br></p><p>One of the biggest pains of the Disney World Park Pass system -- other than the fact that it still exists at all -- has been fixed. You can now modify a park reservation, including date, park and party members (subject to availability), rather than having to cancel and re-book.</p><p>You can also book theme park reservations with different admission types – so whether you’re an Annual Passholder, date-based ticket holder or visiting with a Cast Member, you can all make your reservations at one time.  </p><p>The question still remains though: for nearly 50 years we got along just fine without Park Pass. It came into effect during the Walt Disney World reopening stages of covid to limit and monitor crowd sizes. But that need has now passed. So why is Park Pass still here? It's an annoyance and yet another thing requiring advance booking for no good reason at all.</p><p>--</p><p><br><strong>New Details about Moana's attraction at EPCOT: Journey of Water</strong></p><p><br>If you're wondering what's behind those unsightly construction walls at EPCOT, here's the scoop.</p><p>Journey of Water is an upcoming Moana attraction that will allow you to explore and engage with water as it travels from sky to ocean and back again: the natural cycle of water.  </p><p>Fans Disney's Moana will see familiar shapes and characters carved into the rocks and waterways throughout Journey of Water. A great example of this is Moana herself, who will be positioned proudly – celebrating water’s arrival at the ocean.</p><p>So while we would still prefer the often rumored fourth mountain Moana attraction in Disney's Magic Kingdom Park, Journey of Water at least gives Moana a small nod at EPCOT.</p><p>--</p><p><strong>Traditional Character Greetings Return Onboard at Disney Cruise Line<br></strong><br></p><p>Traditional character greetings, up-close character greetings, including autographs, are now resuming across the entire <em>Disney Cruise Line</em> fleet.</p><p>--</p><p><strong>New Dates for Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser Sailings<br></strong><br>New on sale dates have been released for <em>Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser</em>. See below for the booking cadence for voyages through September 2023:</p><ul> <li>August 25: Club 33 and Golden Oak</li> <li>August 26: Invited Star Wars affinity groups</li> <li>August 30: Disney Vacation Club Members</li> <li>August 31: Annual Passholders</li> <li>September 1: Open to the general public</li> </ul><p>--</p><p><strong>Thank You for Listening to the Disney Travel Podcast<br></strong><br>Thank you very much for listening to this episode, Amelia and I hope that you enjoyed it.

Is Disney World Considering Adding a Scary Halloween Party?
<p><strong>Should Walt Disney World Have a Scary Halloween Party?</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>100 episodes ago -- all the way back in episode 38 -- we talked about what we would do if we were in charge of Walt Disney World. One of the things we'd both love to see is a fifth park that has a villains theme. Disney Villains need a place to call their own.</p><p> </p><p>A villains park -- including our Maleficent-themed coaster called Villified -- would be the ideal location for a truly scary Disney-inspired Halloween party. So what would that be like and would you like to see Disney get a bit edgier with Halloween?</p><p> </p><p>--</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>Early Entry and Package Delivery are Now Available at Disneyland<br></strong><br></p><p>Everyone staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel can now take advantage of both Early Entry to the parks and Package Delivery to your room. Overnight Guests at The Happiest Place on Earth can experience these perks and more, including:</p><ul> <li>Proximity and direct Theme Park access</li> <li>Hotel activities like learning to draw Disney characters</li> <li>Direct-to-Room Service</li> <li>Dining Delivery to a Disneyland Resort Hotel lobby from select restaurants in the Downtown Disney District</li> <li>And coming soon, Preferred Dine Access to a limited number of reservations at select hotel table service restaurants during the dates of their hotel stay</li> </ul><p>--</p><p> </p><p><strong>Disney World Hotel Pool Closure Update<br></strong><br></p><p>Pool upgrades are ongoing at Walt Disney World and the latest one began on Sunday, August 14. The Ranchos leisure pool at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort is now closed for routine refurbishment. The pool is expected to reopen in late September, so bear that in mind if you plan to stay there anytime soon.</p><p>During the refurbishment, the Dig Site Feature Pool and the Casitas and Cabanas leisure pools will remain open and available to guests.</p><p><br>--</p><p><br></p><p><strong>Thank You for Listening to the Disney Travel Podcast<br></strong><br>Thank you very much for listening to this episode, Amelia and I hope that you enjoyed it.

Here's a sneak peek of some of the new deli offerings coming to the BoardWalk Deli with inspiration coming from New York and the Jersey Shore. Everything will be baked in house.</p><p> </p><p>For breakfast there's everything from a bagel with eggs, sausage and cheddar to a plant-based ciabatta breakfast sandwich. </p><p> </p><p>For lunch and dinner there are hot and cold deli sandwiches, a classic pastrami reuben and a signature Italian sub.

One new offering is the Guajillo Spice, which is smoked tableside to highlight the rich flavors of roasted guajillo chilis, charred jalapeños, and black peppercorn, as well as a touch of caramelized sweetness from turbinado sugar and fresh lime.</p><p> </p><p>The newly renovated interior has crystal chandeliers, custom murals and new wall coverings that modernize what has always been a lavish location. There are still three dining options, including the main Dining Room serves a tasting menu that highlights seasonal flavors. </p><p> </p><p>The Queen Victoria Room offers a menu created by the chef de cuisine just for you in a setting "fit for royalty," and includes tableside presentations. </p><p> </p><p>The Chef’s Table is the premium one-of-a-kind experience where the culinary team creates a custom tasting menu.

Disney MagicBand+ How it Works and is it Worth it?
<p><strong>MagicBand+ is Here<br>Is it worth the hype and money?</strong></p><p> </p><p>You can now get a brand new Disney MagicBand+ for your Walt Disney World vacation. </p><p> </p><p>Is it worth getting? Do you plan to get one? Is it worth the upgrade from MagicBand 2? </p><p>Maybe, but we think Disney really dropped the ball here. MagicBand+ has questionable value. What Disney really should have done was release a Disney smart watch. We predict that a Disney MagicBand Watch will be the next (and a better) version of this tech -- especially if it works along with Hey Disney.</p><p>In the meantime, here are the minor benefits of a Disney MagicBand+</p><p> </p><p><strong>MagicBand+ does everything your old MagicBand does:</strong></p><ul> <li>Unlock the door of your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room</li> <li>Enter any of the Disney World theme parks and water parks</li> <li>Redeem Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane reservations</li> <li>Charge items, including food/beverages and merchandise, to your resort room (only if staying onsite)</li> <li>Redeem Disney Dining Plan credits</li> <li>Link PhotoPass images to your account</li> </ul><p><strong>How is MagicBand+ different than a regular MagicBand?</strong></p><ul> <li>MagicBand+ costs more than a MagicBand</li> <li>MagicBand+ has some limited park interactions</li> <li>MagicBand+ has to be charged frequently </li> </ul><p><strong>How to set-up a new MagicBand+ and link it to your Disney account </strong></p><ol> <li>Press the button on the back MagicBand+ to turn it on and tap the band to your phone.</li> <li>Open (or set-up) the My Disney Experience app.</li> <li>Follow the app instructions to link the MagicBand+ to your Disney account, assign it to a guest and pair it to your mobile device.

If you like Walt stories and fun facts, you will love this one. </p><p>Here's a fun fact, number 623 on the trolley stands for June 1923 when Walt first came to California.

Dole Whip is Having Its Disney Day, All the Fun Facts About Dole Whip
<p><strong>DOLE Whip Now Has its Own Disney Day of Celebration<br></strong><br></p><p><strong>Fun Facts About Dole Whip</strong></p><p><br><strong>Dole Whip is a soft-serve dairy free and gluten free frozen dessert created by the Dole Food Company in 1984.</strong> </p><p>Since 2013 it has been fully vegan. It first appeared as an attraction in the Disneyland Enchanted Tiki Room. According to the official Dole website, a 2/3 cup serving of Dole Whip contains 110 calories and 25-27 carbs (depending on the flavor).</p><p> </p><p>Remember, the make-at-home Dole Whip recipe that Disney published in 2020 during lockdown is not the real Dole Whip recipe. The real one is made with powder from Dole, plus water and the machine that combines the two into frozen goodness.</p><p> </p><p>Dole Whip used to be somewhat exclusive and very much a Disney thing to many people, but that's now changed and you can get official Dole Whip in more and more places outside of Disney Parks -- including our local movie theatre in Oakville, Ontario, Canada.</p><p>Dole Whip Day is officially July 21, but the Dole Whip flavor extravaganza will continue through July 24. Going forward Disney plans to hold Dole Whip Day on the third Thursday in July – so if you want to plan your WDW vacation around Dole Whip, you now know which dates to book.</p><p><strong>Walt Disney World Resort <br></strong><br></p><p><strong>Magic Kingdom Park  <br></strong><br></p><p><strong>Aloha Isle </strong><em>(Located in Adventureland)</em></p><ul> <li>Pineapple Float: DOLE pineapple juice served with a choice of DOLE Whip, vanilla soft-serve, or swirl <em>(available with Tiki Sipper for additional cost) </em> </li> <li>Raspberry Swirl Float: DOLE Whip and raspberry swirl served with DOLE pineapple juice</li> <li>Pineapple Upside-Down Cake served with choice of DOLE Whip, vanilla soft-serve, or swirl</li> <li>DOLE Whip Cup: Choice of DOLE Whip, vanilla soft-serve, or swirl</li> <li>Coconut Cup: Choice of coconut or coconut and DOLE Whip swirl</li> <li>Raspberry Swirl Cup: DOLE Whip and raspberry swirl</li> </ul><p><strong>Storybook Treats </strong><em>(Located in Fantasyland) </em></p><ul> <li>Soft-serve Cup: DOLE Whip lime, chocolate, or vanilla soft-serve, or swirl in a cup</li> <li>Snow White Cone: DOLE Whip lemon in a blue cone garnished with a chocolate bird and sugar bow</li> </ul><p><strong>Sunshine Tree Terrace </strong><em>(Located in Adventureland;

The show takes place at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort &amp; Campground, inside Pioneer Hall. The Pioneer Hall Players are ready to dance and sing as they do best.</p><p>The Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue has historically had some of the best comfort food at Walt Disney World. It’s all-you-care-to-enjoy feast with bottomless fountain drinks and for those over 21, red and white sangria, draft beer, and wine are included.</p><p>The Hoop Salad is a simple but satisfying starter with the signature “hoop” vinaigrette topped with sharp white cheddar, cucumbers, and tomatoes. The House-made Cornbread with delicious honey butter is legendary. There's also some very tasty Creamy Coleslaw before the main course arrives at your table. </p><p>For the main course there's Pecan-smoked BBQ Pork Ribs with BBQ sauce. The other main plate is the one, the only – the Legendary Fried Chicken – and it tastes just like how it sounds … legendary. </p><p>And what about those side dishes? Hoop-Dee-Doo brings its A-game with its side dishes. The Cornbread-crusted Macaroni and Cheese is the ultimate comfort food and the Home-style Mashed Potatoes go perfectly with the fried chicken and pork ribs. Rounding out the sides is the classic Cowboy Beans, because let's face it, you can’t have BBQ without beans.</p><p>For the grand finale, the longtime favorite ‘Ma’s Famous Strawberry Shortcake topped with whipped cream and strawberries. This is a staple at Pioneer Hall and the perfect way to finish up your foodie evening.</p><p>In addition to the bottomless beverages, there are a few new adult drinks options for an added cost. The Giddy-Up cocktail is the barkeep’s blend of vodka, lemonade, and freshly brewed iced tea. You can also choose from a variety of local craft beers including Tampa Bay Brewing Elephant Foot IPA, Cigar City Jai Alai IPA, Cigar City Maduro Brown Ale, Orange Blossom Pilsner, Central 28 UnderDuck Lager, and 3 Daughters Brewing Blonde Ale.</p><p>--</p><p><strong>Minnie Vans Return on June 29<br></strong><br></p><p>Starting June 29, Minnie Vans will be back in service at Walt Disney World.

Big News from Disney Aulani, Plus More Reopenings at Disneyland
<p><strong>Aunty’s Beach House at Disney Aulani will Reopen on May 25<br></strong><br></p><p>Aunty's Beach House at Aulani will reopen May 25 giving keiki (kids) aged 5-12 access to the fun and adventure once again. Plus, there's something new: Aunty's Beach house will offer evening activities for  the whole family for the very first time.</p><p>Aunty's Beach House is designed as a typical hale (or house) where kids might visit their "aunty." The beach house is a Hawaiian kids club where the focus is on holiday fun. Each of the six rooms is dedicated to different activities - from a movie room to computer lab, arts and crafts studio to a game room.</p><p><br>Parents can reserve a playtime in Aunty’s Beach House between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. daily for secured and supervised children’s programming. During these hours, parents choose 1.5 hours of playtime for complimentary themed activities on "Uncle's Side" of the house or 2 hours on "Aunty's Side" of the house for premium activities. This is typically a hot ticket and reservations are required.</p><p>Complimentary activities include interactive games and arts and crafts based on the theme of the day. Premium activities include Surf’s Up, A Surfin’, Fishin’ and Dancin’ Party with Disney friends. Children will learn about the ocean, catch a wave on carpet surfboards with Max and get the scoop  on fishing Hawai‘i waters with Goofy.</p><p><br>NEW! Now the whole family can get in on the fun with "after hours" activities from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00  p.m. when Aunty's Beach House turns into an evening entertainment venue. Families can choose from an assortment of complimentary and premium activities where they can learn to play the ‘ukulele, get together for a lesson in animation, or make lasting memories with photo opportunities in front of surfing scenes and other colorful backdrops.</p><p>These activities used to take place in the community hall, but it sounds like they've now made them paid activities and moved them to Aunty's Beach House.</p><p>Aunty's Beach House will reopen with new operations, safety and health protocols in place. Among them: face covering requirements, capacity limits, physical distancing, spacing between craft benches and play areas and temperature checks.</p><p>Reservations for Aunty's Beach House can be made up to two weeks in advance by calling (808) 674-6943 from 7:00 a.m. – 9:30 p.m. daily. Programs are subject to change.</p><p>--</p><p><strong>“Tale of the Lion King” Debuts May 28 at Disneyland Park<br></strong><br></p><p>Starting May 28, 2022, Disneyland Park will welcome “Tale of the Lion King” to its new home at the Fantasyland Theatre, where this original-story theatre adaptation of “The Lion King” will be staged in an all-new presentation. At the heart of the production is a traveling troupe known as The Storytellers of the Pride Lands who weave the tale of how a cub becomes a king through dialogue, song, dance and percussion. From the scenic and costume designs to the new original music arrangements and choreography, “Tale of the Lion King” honors and is inspired by the cultural roots of this timeless story.</p><p>Also on May 28, Troubadour Tavern will reopen with new menu items inspired by the show.</p><p>--</p><p><strong>‘Fantasmic!’ is now 30 and is Returning to Disneyland Park on May 28<br></strong><br></p><p>If you have never seen “Fantasmic!” this is definitely a must-do (at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World, although we prefer the Disneyland version). Fantasmic is an emotional extravaganza of colorful Disney-animated story scenes, choreographed to an exciting musical score. At Disneyland, the waters of the Rivers of America come alive as Mickey Mouse dreams he is the Sorcerer’s Apprentice and faces several villains, using the power of his imagination to save the day. Along the way, fantastic events and images appear from stories including “Fantasia,” “The Jungle Book.” Fantasmic features live performers, character appearances, enhanced special effects and pyrotechnics.</p><p>--</p><p><strong>A Sneak Peek at Disney Cruise Line Disney Wish Inaugural Merchandise <br></strong><br></p><p>WIth the Disney Wish setting sail this summer, Disney is teasing a little more with a preview of some of the merch that you can take home with you from the exclusive Disney Wish merchandise collection. </p><p>Inspired by the Grand Hall on the ship, the first release of merch reflects the enchantment of the Disney Wish with details that include rhinestones and rich fabrication.</p><p>There is something for everyone, from T-shirts, blouses and long sleeve shirts to pullovers and accessories. </p><p> </p><p>A Pandora charm set features Rapunzel (the Wish's bow character) and Captain Minnie Mouse. </p><p> </p><p>You'll also find a new pair of Minnie Mouse ear headbands to add to your collection and even a matching Loungefly backpack.</p><p>Dooney &amp; Bourke has a tote that's part of the collection, which will be available at retail shops on the Disney Wish.</p><p><br>--</p><p><strong>Thank You for Listening to the Disney Travel Podcast<br></strong><br>Thank you very much for listening to this episode, Amelia and I hope that you enjoyed it.

How to Claim Your Spot on Cinderella Castle, plus Cosmic Rewind News
<p><strong>Claim Your Own Unique Place on Cinderella Castle as it transforms with Disney PhotoPass Photos<br></strong><br></p><p>Disney PhotoPass Service is introducing a unique new offer called “Cinderella Castle Mural of Memories.” It will let you transform Cinderella Castle with your PhotoPass photos using augmented reality technology, brought to life through Disney’s collaboration with Snap.</p><p><br>Here's how it works:</p><p><br><strong>Step 1: Claim Your Place on Cinderella Castle</strong><br>While in <a href="https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/destinations/magic-kingdom/">Magic Kingdom park</a>, go to Cinderella Castle and open the My Disney Experience app to see available areas where you can pin a photo. Then select an available area on Cinderella Castle.</p><p><strong>Step 2: Select Your Disney PhotoPass Photo</strong><br>Choose one of your eligible photos (to be eligible, the photo must be taken by a Disney PhotoPass photographer in a picturesque theme park location). Or, use an iconic Disney photo for your memory.</p><p><strong>Step 3: Explore Memories and Share Your Own</strong><br>See the memories of family, friends and other park Guests. You can also download your memory and share it, too! <br> <br>There's a one-time fee of $9.99 per memory and includes the download of your memory photo.</p><p>Here's what you get for $9.99:</p><ul> <li>A spot on Cinderella Castle to digitally pin a photo, which will be waiting for you (and all guests) to view during visits to Magic Kingdom Park throughout the 50th celebration and beyond (for at least three years).</li> <li>A video of your PhotoPass photos photos flying from the castle for downloading and sharing.</li> <li>The ability to download a high-resolution version of the pinned photo from your Disney PhotoPass gallery (a $16.95 value) both in its original form and a version with a special border that includes your first name. If you’re a Disney cast member, Annual Passholder, Disney Vacation Club Member, or Club 33 Member you’ll get a personalized border fora your affiliation.</li> </ul><p>Over time, new sections of the castle will be released, so they'll be new spots to pin your memories. </p><p><br>--</p><p><strong>Final Playlist and a Villain are Revealed for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT<br></strong><br></p><p>Not surprisingly when <em>Guardians of the Galaxy</em>: Cosmic Rewind launches on May 27 it will have its own playlist to power your journey.</p><p>Disney Imagineers came up with a list of more than 100 potential songs for the Starjumpers’ onboard sound system. How did they narrow it down to six? The team rode the attraction over and over again testing how various tracks fit with the spirit and the movement of the coaster. They finally settled on the following six songs in their original classic versions:</p><ul> <li>“September”</li> <li>“Disco Inferno”</li> <li>“Conga”</li> <li>“Everybody Wants to Rule the World”</li> <li>“I Ran”</li> <li>“One Way or Another”</li> </ul><p>You won’t know which track you're going to hear until you blast off. Plus we now know that the theme of the ride is to help stop Eson, the Celestial villain who is trying to complete an evil plan. </p><p>--</p><p><br><strong>Connections Café &amp; Eatery is Now Open at EPCOT<br></strong><br></p><p>Connections Café &amp; Eatery is open and ready to serve in the World Celebration neighborhood.</p><p><br>The restaurant’s design includes nods to Walt Disney’s original plans for EPCOT. There are two experiences – an eatery on one side serving lunch and dinner menus, and a café and pastry shop on the other open all day long. </p><p><br>When walking past Spaceship Earth on the way into the park, Connections Café and Eatery is on the left. Floor-to-ceiling windows give a full view of the open space featuring modern décor and tempting smells of pastries baking, fresh coffee brewing and burgers on the grill. Since World Celebration is located in the center of the park, Connections Café &amp; Eatery offers some great views as well.</p><p>A colorful mural called “Global Gathering” covers one wall and reflects the heart of the restaurant – people from around the world gathering around food. It’s one of the biggest murals Walt Disney Imagineering has ever created. Take note how the scenes blend seamlessly from sunrise to sunset.</p><p><br>You can also see chefs at work in three show kitchens. Watch them grilling, sautéing and baking everything from burgers to pizzas and sprinkling pixie dust on fun desserts from milkshakes to waffles.</p><p>Whether it's coffee or tea, you'll find it here showcasing how various cultures enjoy their favorite drinks.</p><p>As always at WDW, don’t forget to look down. There are three original floor inlays inspired by Walt’s 1966 “Florida Project” site plans, where EPCOT was to serve as the “center” of Walt Disney World. These details honor Walt's original dream of EPCOT. </p><p>--</p><p><strong>‘Finding Nemo: The Big Blue… and Beyond!’ Opening Summer 2022 at Animal Kingdom Park<br></strong><br></p><p>The Nemo show is getting an update: “Finding Nemo: The Big Blue… and Beyond!” – opens this summer at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park.</p><p>The fully updated, 25-minute show incorporates live performers and puppets, along with many of the favorite songs from the original “Finding Nemo: The Musical.”</p><p>In addition to a new script, the show features new set pieces and a new LED video wall designed to visually extend the world created by the physical sets on stage. We aren’t talking small set pieces either. Watch for a 32-foot-long sunken submarine and a fish tank volcano standing nearly 15 feet tall.</p><p>--</p><p><strong>How to Treat Mom for Mother's Day at Disneyland and Walt Disney World<br></strong><br></p><p>Mother’s Day May 8 is almost here and Disney chefs have put their best creations forward to celebrate. </p><p><strong><em>Disneyland Resort</em></strong><strong><br></strong><br></p><p><strong>Disneyland Park<br></strong><br></p><p><strong>Plaza Inn </strong></p><ul><li>Mother’s Day Brunch: Drop “inn” to enjoy a meal with family on Main Street, U.S.A. with classic American fare joined by Minnie Mouse and her friends.

Reservations will be available starting May 26 for showtimes beginning June 23.</p><p><br>The Pioneer Hall Players lead the way on this frontier-style family fun dining experience in Pioneer Hall at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campground. First debuting in 1974, Hoop-Dee-Doo is a rousing Wild West performance, featuring singing, old style comedy with lots of fun (including audience participation). The food is also great, featuring fried chicken, smoked BBQ ribs, a variety of savory sides and even strawberry shortcake for dessert.</p><p><br>This show is the longest running performance at Walt Disney World.

What does this mean? You will once again be able to hug Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and more friends, and get an autograph from your favorite Disney Princess (or villain). </p><p>To manage expectations, Disney notes that not all locations will be available immediately for character interaction, but they are planning to reopen in phases throughout the spring and early summer of 2022.</p><p>--</p><p><strong><em>Late-Breaking News:</em></strong><br><strong>Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind Roller Coaster Debuts on May 27</strong></p><p>In an early gift of summer, Disney announced that the Cosmic Rewind coaster at EPCOT will officially debut on May 27, 2022. </p><p>While the coaster itself promises to have elements of Crush's Coaster from Disneyland Paris, there is also a pre-show. As the story goes, Xandarians are coming to Earth and building the first “other-world” showcase pavilion at EPCOT, called the Wonders of Xandar pavilion.

It's a casual quick-service restaurant with a global culinary feel.</p><p>If you love burgers, there's the <strong>French Bistro Burger</strong> with caramelized onions, bacon and brie, or the <strong>Southwestern Burger</strong> featuring a roasted chipotle-corn salsa and guacamole spread. That's not all, you can also enjoy the Vietnamese-inspired <strong>Banh Mi Burger</strong> or the Greek-inspired <strong>Mediterranean Burger</strong>.</p><p>For a lighter option, there are salads inspired by French and Chinese cuisines. The <strong>Niçoise-style Salad</strong> is packed with potatoes, white and green beans and olives drizzled with a delicious Dijon vinaigrette. For an Asian flare, the <strong>General Tso Chicken Salad </strong>features ingredients like broccoli slaw, red bell pepper, mandarin oranges and crispy wontons.</p><p>There are four types of pizza as well, including a classic <strong>Meatball Pizza</strong> and a plant-based <strong>Curry Spice Pizza </strong>topped with carrots, potato, peas and lime “yogurt.”</p><p>And for the little ones there's a <strong>Grilled Chicken Bao</strong> or classics like the <strong>Chicken Nuggets Basket</strong> or <strong>Cheeseburger</strong>.</p><p>Connections Eatery will also have a dessert-style dish: the <strong>Liege Waffle</strong>. This treat is made with brioche yeast dough stuffed with pearl sugar and finished with tasty toppings.</p><p>For the milkshake lover, there are two options: A <strong>Mango-Coconut Milk Shake</strong> topped off with a pomegranate molasses drizzle, and the delectable <strong>Apple Pie Gelato Shake</strong>.</p><p>Both adults and kids can enjoy specialty beverages at Connections Eatery. The <strong>Watermelon-Mint Agua Fresca</strong> is alcohol-free. For adults there are multiple wines and draft beers available, along with the <strong>Cucumber and Thai Basil Cooler</strong>, a specialty cocktail filled with freshness and flavor.</p><p><br>As a reminder, Connections Café is the future home of Starbucks at EPCOT.</p><p>--</p><p><strong>Exclusive Merchandise and Enchanting Memories Await Aboard the Disney Wish<br></strong><br></p><p>The Disney Wish will feature an elegant retail district that runs between the Grand Hall and the Walt Disney Theatre on deck 3. On either side of this shop-lined promenade, five distinct outlets will offer exclusive Disney merchandise and luxury gifts like jewelry, watches and accessories.</p><p>One of these shops, Treasures Untold, will be the go-to destination for signature Disney Cruise Line collectibles, including the largest selection of Pandora Jewelry ever, plus limited-time Artist Spotlight collections and guest-favorite Dooney &amp; Bourke handbags.</p><p>In a new location on deck 5, returning Disney cruisers will find a familiar sight: Mickey’s Mainsail, a fleet mainstay filled with Disney Cruise Line themed souvenirs and gifts, plus even more Disney Wish exclusives — like the special-edition Loungefly mini-backpack and headband above. And on the upper decks, Dory’s Forget-Me-Knots will feature swimwear, water-play gear and fun graphic tees inspired by favorite Disney stories.</p><p><br>--</p><p><strong>Thank You for Listening to the Disney Travel Podcast<br></strong><br>Thank you very much for listening to this episode, Amelia and I hope that you enjoyed it.

Walt Disney World Trip Report Spring 2022, Plus Disney Travel News
<p><strong>What's it Like to Visit Walt Disney World Right Now?<br></strong><br>Walt Disney World is pretty much back to normal in many ways. Masks are a thing of the past. In fact, we felt like the only guests wearing masks at all. We still required a negative Covid test to board a plane home, so we had to be extra careful (although this mandate for Canada is set to expire on April 1, 2022). It's very rare to see a mask on guests at Walt Disney World, except on monorails and buses, where they are still required (although we feel that this mandate won't be here for much longer.</p><p>As Walt Disney World continues to emerge from the pandemic, there are still some things that are catching up. For example, there are not boats running from Disney's Contemporary Resort. This is because Disney World lost a large number of boat captains over the pandemic and they are currently trying to hire and train new captains as quickly as possible. On a related note, we were told that the SeaRaycer mini speedboats would not be back. Apparently, the boats sat around for too long over the pandemic and simply got gummed up and required too much service to make the fleet worth keeping. We don't believe they will be replaced based on our discussions with Disney Cast Members.</p><p><strong>Is Lightning Lane Better than FastPass+?</strong></p><p>In short, no.</p><p>Disney's Genie + and Lightning Lane make visiting the parks at Walt Disney World much more challenging and frustrating versus previous methods of FastPass and FastPass+. We share full details in the episode, along with some tips and tricks for how to make the most of the current Lightning Lane and Individual Lightning Lane.</p><p><strong>Disney World Rides and Attractions Continue to Experience Downtime</strong></p><p>Consistent with what we had been hearing before this visit, many Disney rides and attractions continue to experience more downtime than was previously "normal" for Walt Disney World. Once again, we believe that this is due to staffing challenges and hopefully this will be remedied once Walt Disney World returns to more robust Cast Member staffing levels. </p><p>This was particularly noticeable on things like the Disney Vacation Club Moonlight Magic Special Event. When you only have three hours in a park (in this case, Epcot), having Ratatouille down and Spaceship Earth down and Frozen Ever After experiencing issues etc., it's not a good thing. It led to longer lines at the few attractions that were open and overall was a poor experience as a result.</p><p><strong><em>In other Disney Travel News...</em></strong></p><p><strong>Connections Café Will Be the New Home of Starbucks at EPCOT</strong></p><p><br>This spring, Connections Café will become the new home of Starbucks at EPCOT. Like other Starbucks locations throughout Walt Disney World Resort, this Starbucks will be designed to fit the theme of its surroundings.</p><p>To make way for Starbucks to move to its new location in World Celebration, Traveler’s Café in World Showcase will close this spring. </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>Facemask Requirement Dropped for Disney Skyliner</strong></p><p><br>As of March 16, face coverings are now optional for fully vaccinated guests on the Disney Skyliner. Face coverings will also be optional for fully vaccinated guests on Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser.</p><p>At this time, face coverings remain required by all Guests (ages 2 and up) on monorails and Disney buses.</p><p><br><strong>Thank You for Listening to the Disney Travel Podcast<br></strong><br>Thank you very much for listening to this episode, Amelia and I hope that you enjoyed it.

What's New and What's Coming Back Soon at Walt Disney World
<p><strong>A Look at the Newest Entertainment at Magic Kingdom Park<br></strong><br></p><p>Magic Kingdom Park has more favorites returning, plus new entertainment filling the streets and the castle stage as part of the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary celebration.</p><p>“Mickey’s Magical Friendship Faire” is newly enhanced that features characters from “Frozen,” “The Princess and the Frog” and more as they join Mickey Mouse and all his friends in a musical extravaganza on the Cinderella Castle Forecourt Stage. </p><p>The opening and finale of the show feature a new song and sparkling EARidescent fashions designed exclusively for the 50th. </p><p>The Festival of Fantasy parade is now back – with not one, but two runs each day! Of course the show features the fire-breathing Maleficent dragon – along with just about every major Disney character favorite.</p><p>And sharing the same parade route is the recently launched Adventure Friends Cavalcade. It takes over the Magic Kingdom streets several times a day with nearly 30 of your favorite Disney and Pixar friends including Moana, Nick and Judy from “Zootopia” and Miguel from “Coco.”</p><p>--</p><p><strong>More Experiences Added to Disney Genie+ Service<br></strong><br></p><p><strong>Two new experiences are now available in</strong> <strong>Disney Genie+ :</strong></p><ul> <li>Magic Kingdom: <strong>Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade</strong> </li> <li>Disney’s Hollywood Studios: <strong>See Disney Stars at Red Carpet Dreams</strong> </li> </ul><p><strong>--<br></strong><br></p><p><strong>Connections Café and Eatery Opens This Spring at EPCOT</strong></p><p>Connections Café and Eatery recently celebrated a new milestone, with the installation of the first of five marquees. While no date has been announced, the restaurant will open at some point this spring giving EPCOT visitors a new fast-casual restaurant and adjoining café. </p><p>It is in the World Celebration neighborhood of EPCOT.</p><p>The name Connections Cafe was inspired by the core EPCOT idea of “connecting”– by the common bond we share over food and the gathering of people across cultures.</p><p>--</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>Update on Hawai‘i’s Safe Travels Program &amp; Safe Access Oahu Program</strong></p><p>Starting March 26, 2022, Hawaii's Safe Travels program will end, meaning passengers arriving from within the U.S. will no longer have to show proof of a COVID-19 vaccination or a pre-travel negative test result upon arrival to Hawaii in order to avoid quarantine. </p><p>However, international passengers still have to follow the travel requirements put in place by the federal government, so testing is still required. If you are traveling from outside the U.S., remember to check before flying.</p><p><br>Also, Honolulu’s Safe Access Oahu program has also ended, and visitors no longer have to provide proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test to dine on property.</p><p>What hasn't changed: the State of Hawaii still has a face covering mandate for all indoor locations. </p><p><br>At Disney Aulani Resort, face coverings are required for each Guest age 2 and up, and must be worn in all indoor locations, including Laniwai - A Disney Spa, except when actively eating or drinking while stationary and maintaining appropriate physical distancing. Face coverings are optional in outdoor common areas at Aulani Resort.</p><p>--</p><p><strong>Thank You for Listening to the Disney Travel Podcast<br></strong><br>Thank you very much for listening to this episode, Amelia and I hope that you enjoyed it.

Disney Springs has plenty of great food, and that includes healthier option menu items.</p><p><br><strong>Erin McKenna’s Bakery NYC</strong> – Focus on diners with gluten, dairy, egg, and soy sensitivities, the health-minded, and those with allergies (especially kids) who can't find good food. Everything here is vegan, gluten-free and promises to be delicious.</p><p><br><strong>Frontera Cocina</strong> – The Taqueria Ensalada features Arcadian lettuce, poblano rajas, carrot, radish, avocado, tortilla strips, Cotija cheese and an avocado-lime vinaigrette-grilled chicken breast or the Mojo garlic grilled shrimp can also be added.</p><p><br><strong>Planet Hollywood</strong> – The Hollywood Bowl is a standout salad that features Romaine lettuce, house-roasted turkey breast, hard-boiled egg, avocado, Roma tomato, and cucumber. It comes with bacon, swiss cheese and croutons, but you can omit those if you’re aiming for a lower calorie meal. While the recommended dressing is Thousand Island, feel free to swap in a balsamic vinaigrette if desired.</p><p><br><strong>The Polite Pig</strong> – The Polite Caesar and Cobb Salads (without bacon) are satisfying bets, while the Chicken Salad Wrap is great for those who want a handheld option. There are even healthy choices for little ones including the Roast Smoked Turkey Breast and Grilled Skinless Chicken Breast.</p><p><br><strong>Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant</strong> – This Shepherd Went Vegan is a plant-based Shepherd’s Pie, and the Raglan Risotto is a vegetarian dish that spotlights wild mushrooms, glazed baby vegetables, tarragon and shaved parmesan. Raglan Road is also celebrated by those with gluten sensitivities as many of their popular menu items are gluten-free.</p><p><br><strong>Yesake</strong> – The Tofu Power Bowl is a hearty mix of organic tofu, avocado, spinach, carrot, cabbage, cucumber, tempura crunch and wasabi ponzu. Best of all? Guests can modify it to your liking.</p><p>These are just a few of the healthier items you can find at Disney Springs. But remember to ask your server for recommendations and d forget you can always ask for a dish to be modified. </p><p><br><strong>Foodie Guide 2022 Epcot International Festival of the Arts</strong></p><p><br>Running from January 14 through February 21, 2022  the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts will showcase visual, culinary and performing arts from across the globe. </p><p><br>Here's the long awaited Foodie Guide to the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts!</p><p><br><strong><em>Pop Eats!

Disney's Typhoon Lagoon has Reopened (now for the bad news)
<p><strong>Disney's Typhoon Lagoon has Reopened, but it's not all good news<br></strong><br></p><p>The surf’s up once again at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, but that's only part of the story. The tropical-island-inspired water park reopened to guests on January 2, 2022. Unfortunately, Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park closed to guests (temporarily at least) on New Year's Day, January 1, 2022. Disney giveth and Disney taketh away.</p><p>There's always a lot to do at Typhoon Lagoon, but with the Walt Disney World 50th anniversary underway, there are a few more things you should know.</p><p><br><strong>What's New and What's a Must-Do at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon in 2022</strong></p><p><br><strong>Create Your Own Custom Dole Whip </strong></p><p>The Snack Shack next to Typhoon Tilly’s allows you to sample items from a menu of all-new frozen dessert bar items. You can even mix and match some favorite Dole Whip flavors (including mango, pineapple, lime and raspberry) to build your own custom Disney Dole Whip. Adults can choose to electrify their Dole Whips by adding tequila, coconut rum or dark rum. Plus, there are new Moana-inspired Dole Whip cones as an option to make your Dole Whip into something a little different.</p><p><br><strong>An Old Favorite is Back: Surfing at Typhoon Lagoon</strong></p><p><br>You can learn to surf with professional instructors at the Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool, America’s largest outdoor wave pool. This is one of our all-time favorite things to do at Walt Disney World and it's a definite must do for anyone who wants to learn to surf and for experienced surfers alike (they will bring the big waves for you).</p><p><br><strong>Crush ‘n’ Gusher: The Disney Water Coaster at Typhoon Lagoon</strong></p><p>What do you get when you combine a water slide and roller coaster? A water coaster of course. There are three tropical fruit-themed chutes: Pineapple Plunger, Coconut Crusher or Banana Blaster.</p><p><br><strong>50th Anniversary-Inspired Menu Items</strong></p><p>From Walt’s Chili Nachos, which offer a special twist on one of Walt Disney’s favorite meals, to the EARidescent Ice Dream Cone, a birthday cake-flavored soft-serve spectacular, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon is home to a variety of delicious anniversary-themed treats.</p><p><br><strong>Castaway Creek, The Typhoon Lagoon Lazy River</strong></p><p>If water slides aren't your thing or you just want a little time to slow things down, Castaway Creek offers a "peaceful drift" down a 2,000-foot lazy river, floating past shady grottoes, thundering waterfalls, overhead rope bridges and lush rainforest landscapes.</p><p><br><strong>Don’t ‘Miss’ Out on Miss Adventure Falls</strong></p><p>As the story goes, Miss Adventure Falls is owned by Captain Mary Oceaneer – a sea-faring treasure hunter whose haul got caught in the rogue typhoon. This thrilling family-friendly adventure is the newest attraction at Typhoon Lagoon and gives you the opportunity to hunt for Captain Mary’s scattered global treasures during their voyage.</p><p><br><strong>Relax in a Beachcomber Shack, a Private Cabana</strong></p><p>If you want to splurge for your own private space, you can relax in an piece of paradise by booking a Beachcomber Shack, a luxury cabana space featuring cushioned seating, secluded shade and exclusive menu.</p><p><br>Beachcomber Shacks include room for up to six guests, and they have amenities such as towels, cushioned chairs, refillable drink mugs, a locker, and a cooler stocked with ice and bottled water. They make an excellent home base for your stay and you get your own personal attendant.</p><p><br><strong>Hurry to Humunga Kowabunga</strong></p><p>It's not quite Summet Plummet, but thrill seekers will love the near-vertical drops at Humunga Kowabunga, a downhill flume slide that uses the steep slopes of Mount Mayday.</p><p><br><strong><em>In other Disney Travel News...</em></strong></p><p><strong>Explore Europe with 2022 Adventures By Disney Danube and Rhine River Cruises</strong></p><p>If you've ever dreamed of taking an Adventures by Disney river cruise to see the towns and landscapes of Europe, Disney has announced a special offer.</p><p>Adventures by Disney guests can save $500 per person on select 2022 Danube and Rhine River cruises. Departures must be booked before February 28, 2022 and your travel dates must be between June 26 and August 4, 2022.

From the classic railway-inspired bus designs to staff dressed as 1920s rail conductors and engineers, the motorcoaches effectively serve as time-machines, offering a glimpse into 1920s rail travel.</p><p>According to Frank Sherman, CEO of TMS: “Everyone knows the magic of Disney once they’re inside the park gates. But through The Sunshine Flyer, we’re able to give guests the chance to start their vacation from the minute they step off the plane and turn what used to be a procedural drive into the beginning of an adventure to remember.” </p><p><br>With 25 years of experience as a large events transportation company working with world-class events such as the FIFA World Cup, NBA Finals and various PGA TOUR Tournaments, TMS is primed to offer a streamlined and well-executed service through The Sunshine Flyer. </p><p><strong>What's inside The Sunshine Flyer buses?</strong></p><ul> <li>There will be entertainment on the buses</li> <li>Complete with a bathroom</li> <li>You can attach your <strong>child car seat</strong> to the three-point harness on seats</li> <li>For <strong>wheelchairs</strong> request an ADA bus when booking</li> <li>USB chargers and </li> <li>three-point seatbelts for the comfort and safety of all guests </li> </ul><p>And yes, the buses will serve all Disney resort hotels </p><p><strong>How to Make a Reservation for The Sunshine Flyer<br></strong><br></p><p>You will <a href="https://sunshineflyer.com">book tickets online</a> and receive a QR code that you will scan once you arrive at Orlando International Airport. Presumably this will be around the luggage carousel area. The goal is to ensure smooth timing and departures to the Resorts. </p><p><br>No luggage handling option at launch, but they hope to add it at some future time. </p><p><br>Located in the Main Terminal Building of Orlando International Airport (MCO) in Terminal B, Level 1, in the Ground Transportation area</p><p> </p><p><strong>What You Want to Know</strong></p><p><strong>Will buses depart WDW four hours before flight?</strong> <br>Unclear. "Your bus is scheduled based on your specific flights. We monitor both inbound and outbound flights to make sure your trip is scheduled properly. We will email/text you a more exact departure window the day before your scheduled trips."</p><p> </p><p><strong>How long will it take to get to your hotel?</strong> <br>According to Sunshine Flyer: "We are using a dynamic routing software that customizes each day’s transfers based on specific riders. We can set the parameters to how long the ride is or how many stops the bus makes. 65 minutes is the longest anyone will be on a bus once it leaves to the final destination."</p><p><br>“By combining our storied expertise in mass transportation management with a creative, themed experience, we have the unique opportunity to offer an experience that’s both stress-free and engaging,” added Sherman. “Disney guests deserve a trip to remember, right from the start. Whether they’re young or old, travelling in a group or solo, we hope The Sunshine Flyer sparks the imagination and excitement of all of our guests from the moment they step on the bus.”</p><p><br>In celebration of Disney’s 50th anniversary, the Sunshine Flyer will donate 50% of all revenue from the first 50,000 passengers during the first 50 days of business to Make-A-Wish Central &amp; Northern Florida.<br> </p><p>As a part of the Sunshine Flyer’s commitment to giving back, all Make-A-Wish children and their families will receive complimentary service from the Sunshine Flyer for their Disney wishes indefinitely.</p><p><br>Tickets for The Sunshine Flyer must be booked at least four days ahead of arrival. Tickets are $17.00 per adult, $12.50 per child each way. For more information and to book tickets, visit <a href="https://sunshineflyer.com">www.sunshineflyer.com</a>.</p><p><br>Cancellations 72 hours in advance for full refund, credit if less than that.</p><p><br><strong>In other Disney travel news...</strong></p><p> </p><p><strong>Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort Will Reopen at Walt Disney World Resort in 2022</strong></p><p>Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort will welcome Guests back starting March 31, 2022. Reservations are now open to book your stay.</p><p>With this announcement it means that, as of Spring 2022, all Walt Disney World Resort hotels will be operating by for the first time since Spring 2020.</p><p><br><strong>Thank You for Listening to the Disney Travel Podcast<br></strong><br>Thank you very much for listening to this episode, Amelia and I hope that you enjoyed it.

Unbelievably Shocking Tales from Our Disney World Vacation
<p><strong>Three Amazing and Rather Shocking Stories from our Disney World Vacation<br></strong><br>Our Walt Disney World vacation of August 2021 was challenging enough, as we visited WDW in the height of Covid and the Delta Variant. So to have all of this happen to us on top of dodging Coronavirus was definitely a challenged that tested our resolve.</p><p><strong>A Follow-Up to Our Trip Report in from Episode 86</strong></p><p>In our last episode we left you with a bit of a cliff hanger as to the impact that some of these stories had on the outcome of our August 2021 WDW vacation, so the time has come for us to share our stories here on the show.</p><p>Amazingly, the two biggest (and worst) stories of all are things that (thankfully) have never happened to us before. We truly hope that they never happen to you, but if they do, you can hear how we handled each one of these situations to hopefully help you out along the way.</p><p>So buckle up and join us for what was definitely the wildest ride in the wilderness that we've ever had at Walt Disney World (or on any vacation anywhere, for that matter). Hear why <strong>The Medical Concierge of Orlando should be avoided at all costs</strong> and how they take no accountability for botching medical services. This and more in Episode 87.</p><p><strong>Thank You for Listening to the Disney Travel Podcast<br></strong><br>Thank you very much for listening to this episode, Amelia and I hope that you enjoyed it.

The Disney Vacation Glow: What is it and how long will it last?
<p><strong>The Glow of a Disney Vacation<br></strong><br>There's a certain glow you get with a Disney vacation to Walt Disney World, Disneyland or pretty much any Disney travel destination.

The Best (and Worst) Ride Lines and Entrances at Walt Disney World
<p><strong>Some Disney World Ride Entrances Draw You In, While Others, Not So Much<br></strong><br>Should the entrance to a Disney ride draw you in and make you want to see what a ride's all about? We think so. And what about the ride line itself? Is a basic utility line good enough or should Disney Imagineers spend more time upping the quality of even more ride queues in Disney Parks?</p><p>In Episode 74 of The Disney Travel Podcast at 1923 Main Street we explore ride lines and ride entrances at Walt Disney World to determine which offer the best guest experience (while doing justice to the ride itself), and which could use some improvement. After all, the line is part of the overall ride experience and it helps to set the tone (and your mood) before you even board a ride or attraction.</p><p><strong>Thank You for Listening to the Disney Travel Podcast<br></strong><br>Thank you very much for listening to this episode, Amelia and I hope that you enjoyed it.

Exploring the Controversy of Branding in Disney Parks
<p><strong>Is Too Much Disney Branding a Bad Thing? </strong></p><p>I think so and here's why.</p><p>Obviously Disney branding is going to be prominent (if not everywhere) in Disney Parks. After all, their Intellectual Property (IP) is what fans love and what drives the Disney economic engine.</p><p>But there is an increasing threat on the horizon that ironically the new Disney IP is displacing many historic Disney Parks icons that hearken back to the original magic that was, in fact, Disney.</p><p>In Episode 66 of the Disney Travel Podcast at <a href="https://1923mainstreet.com">1923 Main Street</a>, we take a closer look at exactly what is happening in Disney Parks and the risks that this presents to the Disney icons that actually created the magic in the first place. Not only that, this trend is working its way into classic Disney resort hotels. We've already lost Mizner's Lounge and the Boardwalk pool slide to Disney IP. So is Disney's immersive theming now at risk to overt branding consuming all that was Disney?</p><p>Join us for a lively discussion this week on the show.</p><p><strong>Thank You for Listening to the Disney Travel Podcast<br></strong><br>Thank you very much for listening to this episode, Amelia and I hope that you enjoyed it.

How Will a Disney Vacation Affect the Rest of Your Life?
<p><strong>You May Not Know it Going In, But You'll Never Be the Same After Taking a Disney Vacation<br></strong><br>A Disney vacation is a funny thing. More than almost any other destinations on the planet, more people visit Disney Parks and Resorts than just about anywhere else. So what does that mean? As soon as you take your first Disney vacation, you become part of a global group of travelers who universally bond around discussing Disney Parks and Resorts, sharing experiences, asking and giving advice and more. </p><p>In fact, for many travelers, the influence of the Disney vacation sphere of magic can start even before you set foot on Disney property for the very first time.</p><p>In Episode 51 of the Disney Travel Podcast at 1923 Main Street® we explore the unique and universal appeal of Disney travel and how it can (and likely will) affect your life, whether or not you want it to.</p><p><strong>"What? You've never been to Disney?"<br></strong><br>How often have you heard someone utter those words? Once you become part of the Disney travel multitude, it becomes hard to believe when a friend or acquaintance admits that they've never set foot in a Disney Park or Resort. Especially if they are a family with younger kids. </p><p>As mentioned in the episode, if you have never watched this <a href="https://youtu.be/HVldRjNb4BE">Hot Date video with a Disney travel twist</a>, it's definitely worth a view.</p><p>Here is a link to the LinkedIn post that I refer to in this episode: <a href="https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/what-ive-learned-business-from-100-trips-walt-disney-world-mike/">What I've Learned About Business from 100 Trips to Walt Disney World</a></p><p><strong>Thank You for Listening to the Disney Travel Podcast<br></strong><br>Thank you very much for listening to this episode, Amelia and I hope that you enjoyed it.

The Stories Behind the Disney Parks Icons at Walt Disney World
<p><strong>The Disney Parks Icons: The Story Behind Some of the Best-Known Disney "Wienies"<br></strong><br>Every Disney Park has its iconic symbol. These are often the most well know images associated with the parks.</p><p>In most cases, the icon is something that you can see as soon as you enter the park. Walt Disney called these "wienies."

Disney's Polynesian Village: Likes, Dislikes and Hopes for the Future
<p><strong>Likes, Dislikes and Future Hopes for Disney's Polynesian Village Resort<br></strong><br>Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is a classic original Walt Disney World hotel. So what's great about it? What's not so great about it? And what should we hope to see in the future? </p><p>Disney has announced that the Polynesian is undergoing a (much needed) refurbishment and is expected to reopen in the summer of 2021. The refurbishment will cover guest rooms and the Great Ceremonial House (the main lobby) and will include themes, colors and textures from the Pacific Islands and Moana theming. </p><p><strong>Can Disney's Polynesian Village Resort Return to its Former Glory?<br></strong><br>The questions remain, however, will this be enough to help a sorely aging property return to its former glory?</p><p>Join us as we discuss Disney's Polynesian Village Resort in its current state, including what we like about it, what we don't like about it and what we hope to see once the refurbishment is completed in 2021. With such a big following, hopefully Disney will do it right and give the property some much needed TLC.</p><p><strong>Thank You for Listening to the Disney Travel Podcast<br></strong><br>Thank you very much for listening to this episode, Amelia and I hope that you enjoyed it.

The Future of Walt Disney World Vacation Planning
<p><strong>What Does the Future Hold for Walt Disney World Vacation Planning?</strong></p><p>With all that's happening in Disney Parks these days and with the Disney Genie planning app supposedly coming our way (possibly later in 2020 or even 2021), what will the Walt Disney World vacation planning process be like and how will it be different?</p><p><strong>Walt Disney World Vacation Planning will Never Be the Same<br></strong><br>As Disney explores new ways to manage FastPasses, dining reservations and more, several factors are impacting how the entire Disney World vacation planning process will change (and hopefully progress) in the months ahead. Covid-19 summer rules at Disney Parks are affecting Disney's FastPass+ system and dining reservations (and more) and the impending release of the all-new Disney Genie planning app is on the horizon for release in later 2020 (although this date may no longer be in play). Plus, the Park Pass has now been launched, but will this be only temporary? </p><p>With all of these factors in play, one thing we know for sure is that the current mottled process of trying to plan a Walt Disney World vacation is going to change (and hopefully for the better). The current system can be very stressful, which is something that needs to be addressed as Disney looks for ways to enhance the overall guest experience.</p><p><strong>Pay for Play at Walt Disney World<br></strong><br>One thing that we think may become even more prominent is the pay for play model. We expect to Walt Disney World joining other theme parks (include other resorts of their own) in offering more paid upgrade options to get more FastPasses, extra access to events and so on. Where do we stand on pay for play? Listen to the show to hear our views.</p><p><strong>How Will the Walt Disney World Vacation Planning Process be Different?<br></strong><br>In Episode 26 of our Disney Travel Podcast, we take a look at what the future may hold for Walt Disney World vacation planning and how the process may be drastically different than it is today. </p><ul> <li>Will the Disney vacation planning process be better or worse? </li> <li>Will travel agents still have a prominent role in planning Walt Disney World vacations? </li> <li>Will the Disney Genie app fill the needs of all types of Disney travelers?</li> </ul><p>Join us for a look ahead at what the planning process might be like and what we hope to see as frequent vacationers to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.</p><p>As promised in the episode, we have included a link to <a href="https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2019/08/revolutionary-new-digital-offering-disney-genie-coming-to-walt-disney-world-resort/">the official Disney announcement for the Disney Genie app</a> from August 2019.</p><p><strong>Amelia and I Thank You for Listening<br></strong><br>Thank you very much for listening to this episode, Amelia and I hope that you enjoyed it.

The Secret Disney Vacation: Walt Disney World for Adults
<p><strong>What to Do on an Adults Only Walt Disney World Vacation</strong></p><p>The Secret Disney Vacation is an adults-only Walt Disney World vacation where the kids stay at home and the adults sneak away for a covert Disney vacation. In Episode 21 of the Disney Travel Podcast, hear how to craft a Secret Disney Vacation and everything to do with Walt Disney World for adults.</p><p><strong>What is a Secret Disney Vacation?</strong></p><p>Walt Disney World is super fun when you go with the kids, but sometimes you might wonder what it's like to experience the Disney magic without having the kids in tow. That's where the Secret Disney Vacation comes in. The Secret Disney Vacation is a term that I created many years ago when I was a Disney travel advisor. It started with one couple who wanted to plan a Disney vacation just for the two of them. So they needed everything to be covert so the kiddies wouldn't catch on. </p><p>In this Episode, I have put Amelia in the role of hacker telling us all the ways that a kid may find out about the Secret Disney Vacation, so that you can use this intel to avoid getting caught.</p><p><strong>Walt Disney World for Adults: What to See and Do</strong></p><p>Above and beyond the Secret Disney Vacation, most of Episode 21 is all about what to see and do on an adults-only vacation to Walt Disney World. We share the top picks and must-dos to help you plan the perfect Disney World vacation for adults, whether or not it's a Secret Disney Vacation.</p><p>Sometimes we have fun matching the episode numbers to the topic. Episode 13 was all about <a href="https://share.transistor.fm/s/ac8fd031">What to Do When Things Go Wrong on a Walt Disney World Vacation</a>. We felt it fitting that Episode 21 should be all about Adult Disney Vacations.</p><p><strong>For More Information:</strong></p><ul><li><a href="https://mikebelobradic.com/the-secret-disney-vacation-walt-disney-world-for-adults/">The Secret Disney Vacation: Walt Disney World for Adults</a></li></ul><p><strong>What Happens in Walt Disney World Stays in Walt Disney World</strong></p><p>We hope that you enjoyed The Secret Disney Vacation. If you have tips or advice -- or a story about planning your own Secret Disney Vacation -- be sure to share it with us. We would love to hear from you.</p><p><br><strong>Amelia and I Thank You for Listening<br></strong><br>Thank you very much for listening to this episode, Amelia and I hope that you enjoyed it.

Knowing what to do ahead of time can make the difference between a minor blip and a ruined vacation.</p><p><strong>How to Fix Issues on a Disney World Vacation<br></strong><br>In Episode 13 of 1923 Main Street: A Daddy Daughter Disney Travel Podcast, we cover seven of the most common issues or problems that you may encounter on a Disney World vacation.
