How to Ride Tron Lightcycle Run Before it Opens to the Public
<p><strong>How to Ride TRON Lightcycle Run Before it Opens to the Public on April 4 </strong></p><p><br>Disney travelers are anticipating the opening of TRON Lightcycle / Run, which is scheduled to officially open on Tuesday, April 4, 2023 at Disney's Magic Kingdom Park.</p><p>But did you know that before the attraction officially opens there will likely be an opportunity for certain guests to get a ride? Cast members always get this perk (understandably) but Disney has basically said that Annual Passholders and eligible Disney Vacation Club Members will also be given an opportunity to throw their hats in the ring for this major perk.</p><p><br>We don't know the details yet, but there will likely be a rush to get a spot once details are announced.</p><p><br>The story of the ride is that it picks up after the “TRON: Legacy” story where Kevin’s son, Sam Flynn, has opened a second gateway into a digital world called the Grid. The first portal to this world was built at Shanghai Disneyland with the original TRON Lightcycle Power Run. So it's fun how Disney has worked to continue the story and didn't just make this a copy of the Shanghai version.</p><p>As the ride goes, you will be Team Blue against the Grid’s menacing Programs, Team Orange. Your goal is to be the first to race through eight Energy Gates and secure victory. How this all pans out remains to be seen, but one thing is certain: Tron Lightcycle Run will be one of the fastest coasters at any Disney theme park in the world.</p><p>---</p><p><strong>The Positive Changes at Walt Disney World Resort:</strong></p><ol> <li>If you're a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder you'll soon be able to visit the theme parks after 2:00 p.m. without needing a park pass reservation. The only exclusions are Saturdays and Sundays at Magic Kingdom Park and pass blackout dates.</li> <li>You can once again self-park at Walt Disney World hotels at no cost when you are a guest staying there.</li> <li>When you buy Disney Genie+ you'll also get free digital downloads of Disney PhotoPass attraction photos taken in the park on the day of your purchase.</li> </ol><p>---</p><p> </p><p><strong>The Positive Changes at Disneyland </strong></p><ol> <li>Starting February 4, 2023, if you have a Disneyland theme park ticket with a Magic Key pass or a Park Hopper ticket you can start hopping two hours earlier – starting at 11:00 a.m. </li> <li>Disneyland will offer nearly two-months-worth of $104 park ticket dates throughout 2023, which means more opportunities to enjoy the lowest price one-day, one-park tickets.</li> <li>Disney PhotoPass digital photo downloads taken on any Disney PhotoPass attraction during a park visit will be complimentary for ticketed park guests on the Disneyland app starting February 4 and lasting for the Disney 100 celebration.</li> <li>Disneyland Resort will make select Magic Key passes available for new sales from time to time throughout 2023 as pass inventory becomes available. </li> </ol><p>--</p><p><strong>Tiana’s Palace Coming to Disneyland Park in 2023<br></strong><br></p><p>Just as Tiana transformed an old sugar mill into her dream restaurant in “The Princess and the Frog,” Disney is transforming the French Market Restaurant in New Orleans Square at Disneyland Park into a news restaurant called Tiana’s Palace.</p><p>Tiana’s Palace will feature peach-colored walls and green wrought-iron balconies with elegant fixtures and appointments reminiscent of Tiana’s film life. This should fit nicely into the current vibe of New Orleans Square. The new quick-service restaurant will offer guests an authentic New Orleans menu and expand on the current items served at the location.</p><p>To make the change, the French Market Restaurant (and Mint Julep Bar) will be closed as of February 17, 2023, and will reopen as Tiana’s Palace (alongside the Mint Julep Bar with its famous mint juleps and Mickey beignets) later in 2023.</p><p>---</p><p> </p><p><strong>Moonlight Magic is Back 2023</strong></p><p> </p><p>Disney Vacation Club members, mark your calendars:</p><p> </p><p>Disney California Adventure - February 1, 2023</p><p>EPCOT - February 8 and 15, 2023</p><p>Disney's Hollywood Studios - May 11 and September 13, 2023</p><p>Disney's Animal Kingdom Park - July 11 and August 2, 2023</p><p>Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park - May 23 and August 23, 2023</p><p> </p><p>--</p><p> </p><p><strong>Pool Closures at Disney Aulani in Early 2023<br></strong><br></p><p>Aulani's two popular water slide pool areas are closing for refurbishment.</p><ul> <li>The Volcanic Vertical body slide will be unavailable from January 16 – February 3, 2023.</li> <li>The Tubestone Curl tube slide will be unavailable from February 20 to March 10, 2023 and </li> </ul><p>Aulani's other water features will be open during the closures, including Waikolohe Pool and Stream, Ka Maka Pool &amp; Grotto, the multiple whirlpool spas, Keiki Cove splash zone, and Wailana Pool.</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.

The Rides Closing Temporarily (and Forever) at Walt Disney World
<p><strong>What's the Future of Rock'n'Roller Coaster?<br></strong><br>Is Aerosmith done at Walt Disney World? That's what Disney travelers want to know.</p><p>With the New Year upon us, we know of a number of new rides and attractions coming our way at Walt Disney World and Disneyland.</p><p> </p><p>But there are also several that are closing for good or that have a future that's simply up in air with more questions than answers.</p><p> </p><p>Permanently closing or already closed at Disney's Hollywood Studios:</p><ul> <li>Jedi Training Academy: Trials of the Temple, </li> <li>Star Wars: Galactic Spectacular and </li> <li>Voyage of the Little Mermaid.</li> </ul><p>At Disney's Animal Kingdom Park:</p><ul> <li>Kali River Rapids will close on January 9, 2023 for refurbishment (with no estimated completion date) and </li> <li>the demolition of Primeval Whirl will soon be completed.</li> </ul><p>At Disney's Magic Kingdom Park:</p><ul> <li>Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is closing for a short refurbishment in January, </li> <li>while Splash Mountain will close on January 23, 2023 for the Tiana ride overhaul. </li> </ul><p>Most of the talk now is focused on Rock'n'Roller Coaster, which is closing for a long refurbishment on February 20, 2023. Disney has said it will be reopening in the summer of 2023.</p><p> </p><p>With the Aerosmith agreement now expired (in 2022), will the refurbishment also become a full ride re-theming of Rock'n'Roller Coaster? </p><p> </p><p>At Disneyland Paris the ride was re-themed into an Avengers ride. But this probably wouldn't be a Marvel re-theme due to agreements in place between Universal Studios Florida and the Marvel Cinematic Universe.</p><p> </p><p>So what would be a likely re-theme? Keep it as Rock'n'Roller Coaster and just update the band to a younger and newer artist or group? Or would they do what they have done in so many other cases at Walt Disney World and re-theme the ride into a Disney character property?</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.

10 New Attractions Coming to Disney World and Disneyland in 2023
<p><strong>Walt Disney World Railroad is Back...with an All-New Voiceover<br></strong><br></p><p>The WDW railroad was an original opening-day attraction in 1971 and it's back with a completely refreshed track and another new surprise...one you may or may not like.</p><p><br>Walt Disney Imagineering introduced a new voice to share stories as the train circles Magic Kingdom Park. </p><p><br>Disney's release stated that the narration is "a voice our guests can envision and resonate with. Someone who grew up on Main Street, U.S.A., dreaming of the day they’d be on the railroad. They’ve now achieved that dream, and they know everyone and everything at Magic Kingdom … an unofficial mayor of sorts." For us, the jury's still out on whether or not this was a good thing as my initial reaction is that I don't care for the PeopleMover vibe on Walt Disney World Railroad.</p><p><br>So what do you think? Is the new voiceover a great addition or an unnecessary distraction?</p><p><br>--</p><p><br><strong>Chef Mickey’s transitions back to buffet-style dining March 1</strong></p><p><br>Starting March 1, 2023 Chef Mickey’s will go back to buffet-style dining, something many fans have been waiting for as they enjoy either breakfast or dinner at this popular character dining location in Disney's Contemporary Resort.</p><p><br>--</p><p> </p><p><strong>So What's Ahead for 2023?

<p><strong>Trip Report: Walt Disney World December 2022<br></strong><br></p><p>The latest from Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom Park, including crowd levels along with the good parts and the not-so-good parts. Is Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party worth it?</p><p>Also, an update on EPCOT Festival of the Holidays and the Candlelight Processional 2022 edition. Is the dining package worth doing?</p><p><br>Our thoughts on this and the current state of Club Level at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and more in our latest Walt Disney World trip report.</p><p><strong>--<br></strong><br></p><p><strong>Disney's Grand Floridian Resort Will Get Some Updates in 2023<br></strong><br></p><p>The resort has been receiving some <em>grand</em> touches that weave familiar storybook charm into the Victorian elegance of this flagship resort. Guest rooms are currently being updated as we speak with more to come as the beloved Grand Floridian ushers in its 35th year of magic. The ongoing renovation will also include an upcoming refurbishment of the lobby, which will maintain the classic theming guests know and love with some fresh new enhancements.</p><p>--</p><p><strong>What’s Cooking at Disney’s BoardWalk</strong></p><p>There's a new coffee shop opening soon on the BoardWalk called Carousel Coffee. This new location will be good spot for Joffrey's coffee beverages, tea options, and indulgent pastries.</p><p>The menu will include a Dark Cherry Mocha Frozen Blended Coffee with Whipped Cream. This iconic cherry flavor is known in seaside getaways and is a staple of coffee shops, delis, and ice cream parlors.</p><p>There will be seasonal coffees as well, such as a Cinnamon Bun Frozen Blended Coffee with Whipped Cream. </p><p>The Nitro Cold Brew Coffee is a freshly batched, extra smooth, dark-roasted cold brew coffee infused with nitro. This one aims to capitalize on the popular nitro craze of cold brews.</p><p>For tea lovers, Carousel Coffee has a Pomegranate-Green Tea Lemonade featuring fresh-squeezed lemon juice blended with pomegranate green tea and a touch of agave. This is naturally sweetened and served over ice.</p><p> </p><p>For sweet treats the Crunchy Raspberry Danish is a must-try. This features crispy sugar dough layers with hibiscus fondant and raspberry. Think of a cross between a croissant and muffin.

And, of course, a Mickey Brownie.</p><p>Nearby is The Cake Bake Shop at Disney’s BoardWalk, which we covered in a recent episode.  Not only will there be table-service offerings, but also a quick-service bakery to pick up sweet treats on-the-go.</p><p>There aren’t just cakes here. The restaurant and bakery will serve cookies, French macarons, brownies, dessert bars, pies, and cheesecakes in addition to the handmade cakes.</p><p><strong>--<br></strong><br></p><p><strong>Disney’s DuckTales World Showcase Adventure is Now Ready to Play<br></strong><br></p><p>Join Scrooge McDuck, his nephews and friends as they travel EPCOT World Showcase on a quest to find the Seven Plunders of the World —and return them to their rightful owners. For this expedition there are treasures are hidden in each country pavilion:</p><ul> <li>Mexico</li> <li>Norway</li> <li>China</li> <li>Germany</li> <li>Japan</li> <li>France</li> <li>United Kingdom</li> </ul><p>Each country has three assignments and one finale; so each mission takes 25-30 minutes to complete. You can even replay countries if you want because there are variables in missions (you might not always get the same one). When a country is completed, you'll unlock an achievement in the Disney Play App. Once all countries have been completed, you'll unlock the finale mission, which is playable within the app itself.</p><p>To play you'll need to create an account for the Play Disney Parks app if you don't already have one.</p><p><br>--</p><p><strong>The Princesses are Coming Back to Cinderella's Royal Table<br></strong><br>As of Tuesday, February 28, 2023, Cinderella and her Disney Princess friends will once again be back for character dining at Cinderella's Royal Table in Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World.</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.

The Genie+ Change that Should Never Have Been Needed
<p><strong>Genie+ Adds a Minor Improvement Allowing You to Modify Lightning Lane Selections<br></strong><br></p><p>To make it easier to change plans on the fly, you can now modify<strong> </strong>Lightning Lane<em> </em>selections made with Disney Genie+ without having to cancel and rebook your selection.  This should have been included from day one and it's hard to believe it took this long to add, but at least it's there now. </p><p>To make a change select the three dots on your current Lightning Lane selection from the <em>Tip Board </em>or <em>My Day </em>tab of Disney Genie, and then select “Modify Plan” from the menu that appears.</p><p>After selecting “Modify Plan,” available Lightning Lane experiences from the same park will appear.

The pork vindaloo is prepared with paprika, garlic, tomato, vinegar, and a house-made spice blend.</p><p>The Short Rib Grilled Cheese has slow cooked short ribs with a house-made spice blend, tamarind, and red wine until tender. It's on buttery brioche bread with gouda cheese and pickled onions.</p><p>The Mara also has new items. There's a Marinated Sun-dried Tomato and Herbed Ricotta Flatbread with fresh herb ricotta, tomato sauce, four-cheese blend, and arugula.</p><p> </p><p>There are three new bowls: The Chermoula-spiced Shrimp Bowl has grilled shrimp, pilau rice, kale slaw, cucumber-tomato salad, and chermoula sour cream. The Oak-grilled Chicken Bowl has marinated chicken thighs, slow-roasted over an oak fire.</p><p> </p><p>Rounding out the new additions is the plant-based South African Vegetable Bowl, a perfect balance of curried vegetable stew, pilau rice, kale slaw, dried fruit achar, and avocado-tahini sauce.</p><p>At Jiko: The Cooking Place there's a new appetizer to try – Sweet Potato-Groundnut Soup. This soup features spiced groundnuts, finger lime, pickled red chilies, and sorrel. Groundnuts are actually peanuts.</p><p>Finally, to celebrate Avatar: The Way of Water, Animal Kingdom Lodge has a new signature cocktail at Boma: Flavors of Africa, Sanaa, and Victoria Falls Lounge.

Some Big News for Walt Disney World that You Might Have Missed
<p><strong>Disney Plans to Make a Major Theme Park Investment at Walt Disney World to Respond Universal's Epic Universe</strong></p><p> </p><p>It looks like Bob Iger's return may mean that Disney will be seriously upping its game when it comes to theme park enhancements and new builds. Several media outlets have reported an SEC filing by the Walt Disney Company that calls for spending $6.3 billion on capital expenditures in the parks in 2023. That means new builds and infrastructure and it's a huge increase over the spend in the past for building Galaxy's Edge.</p><p> </p><p>We may not know Bob Iger's vision just yet, but remember all of those great things we saw at D23 Fan Expo -- like the new Villains land in Magic Kingdom Park? It's beginning to look a lot like some big news may be just around the corner</p><p> </p><p>--</p><p> </p><p><strong>Florida Changes Course on Punishing Walt Disney World for Don't Say Gay Stance</strong></p><p> </p><p>In a story by the Financial Times, it looks like Florida lawmakers may be looking to reverse their plans to strip Disney of its right to operate a private government around its theme parks. And it appears that Bob Iger may be the reason why, at least in part.</p><p> </p><p>Bob Iger made a comment that is seen to have calmed tensions between Disney and the Florida state government. He said: “What I can say [is] the state of Florida has been important to us for a long time and we have been very important to the state of Florida. That is something I’m extremely mindful of and will articulate if I get the chance.”</p><p> </p><p>All in all this is good for the Disney traveler, as any negative impacts from the original plan to strip Disney World of its current rights would likely have trickled down to all of us who visit.</p><p><br>--</p><p><strong>A New Scene and New Critters Are Introduced for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure</strong></p><p><br>We now know a little bit more about Tiana's Bayou Adventure including a new scene for the ride and some of the brand-new characters being created for the attraction. The new scene is said to be a "thrilling moment" when you first drop into the bayou and encounter bayou friends both new and familiar.</p><p><br>Fireflies will light up the night and invite us all deeper into the bayou. With all of the fuss Disney is making about this we can only assume that it will be a pretty cool new effect.</p><p><br>Once the ride gets going we'll meet the full group of critters, including an otter, a rabbit, a racoon, a beaver, a turtle and others.

The Essential Guide to Disney's Festival of the Holidays at EPCOT 2022
<p><strong>EPCOT Festival of the Holidays 2022 is Here and Runs Through December 30</strong></p><p><br>In <a href="https://share.transistor.fm/s/2bcbf4a8">last week's episode</a> we shared the complete Foodie Guide for the 2022 EPCOT Festival of the Holidays (including our top picks), this week we share everything else you need to know for EPCOT Festival of the Holidays...</p><p><br>Disney rides are getting into the holiday spirit at EPCOT. Living with the Land – Glimmering Greenhouses is a holiday overlay version of this popular ride, featuring Christmas light displays throughout (and a few other Christmas surprises). While over at Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind get ready for an all-new holiday remix with a Guardians twist.</p><p>The Candlelight Processional is nightly at America Gardens Theatre. It features celebrity narrators retelling the Christmas story accompanied by the Voices of Liberty a capella ensemble, a 50-piece live orchestra with herald trumpets, and choirs that include Disney cast members and local community groups.</p><p><br>Celebrity narrators making their debut this year include Gloria Estefan, Josh Gad, Simu Liu, Mariska Hargitay, Raúl Esparza and Daymond John. See the <a href="https://www.1923mainstreet.com/main-street-news/disney-after-hours-is-coming-back-to-walt-disney-world-in-2023">full line-up of Candlelight Processional celebrity narrators and performance dates on our previous post</a>.</p><p><br>Other Festival of the Holidays highlights include:</p><ul> <li>“JOYFUL! A Celebration of the Season” is an uplifting performance of music celebrating Christmas and Kwanzaa on the World Showcase Plaza Stage, with multiple performances daily.</li> <li>Global holiday traditions come to life in World Showcase with storytellers, musicians and more. Watch for Las Posadas Celebration featuring Mariachi Cobre at the Mexico pavilion, the Canadian Holiday Voyageurs in the Canada pavilion, a Hanukkah storyteller on the promenade between Morocco and France and more storytellers in France, Italy, Japan, Norway and UK.</li> <li>Holiday Kitchens offer festive recipes and drinks—from spiced pumpkin punch and cranberry mimosas to slow-roasted turkey with stuffing and pork schnitzel with braised red cabbage. Treats are everywhere, from linzer cookies and maple bûche de noël to chocolate-peppermint donuts.</li> <li>Latin-American heritage is celebrated at the all-new Nochebuena Cocina Holiday Kitchen, featuring traditional dishes served during the holiday season. </li> <li>The Holiday Cookie Stroll gives you the opportunity to embark on a sweet adventure. Buy any five cookies from the official Cookie Stroll locations and collect matching stamps in your Festival Passport. Then bring it to Holiday Sweets &amp; Treats and you'll get a specialty cookie.</li> <li>Olaf’s Holiday Tradition Expedition Scavenger Hunt is on to search for holiday traditions Olaf has gathered from around the world.</li> <li>You can Christmas shop at EPCOT with unique shopping from around the globe. </li> <li>And finally, no holiday celebration is complete without visiting Santa. Now through Deceber 24, Santa Claus pays a visit to The Odyssey, giving you the opportunity to say hello, pose for a photo and ask for some items from your Christmas wish list.</li> </ul><p>--</p><p><br><strong>Lunar New Year Celebration and Disney California Adventure Food &amp; Wine Festival are back in 2023</strong></p><p><br>Two festivals return to Disney California Adventure in 2023.

In Chinese culture, the rabbit has the unique characteristic of waiting for an opportune moment and then leaping into action. The rabbit symbolizes luck. Disney will also be recognizing the Vietnamese zodiac calendar during the Lunar New Year celebration, which marks 2023 as the Year of the Cat.</p><p>Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse will be there in their festive attire, plus Mulan and Mushu from Mulan.</p><p><br>The centerpiece will be “Mulan’s Lunar New Year Procession,” a vibrant performance hosted by Mulan and Mushu, that features dozens of spirited parade performers as they honor family, friendship, and the potential for a fortune-filled new year. For 2023, the procession will be extended throughout all of California Adventure with the parade route from Paradise Gardens through Hollywood Land.</p><p><br>The culinary landscape will expand with two new Lunar New Year marketplaces: Bamboo Blessings and Wrapped with Love. They will join the returning marketplaces, including Lucky 8 Lantern, Prosperity Bao &amp; Buns, Red Spice Traders, and Longevity Noodle Co. With the Sip and Savor pass you can taste you way through six food &amp; non-alcoholic drink selections from participating marketplaces and dining locations.</p><p>World of Color's “Hurry Home – Lunar New Year Celebration” is the heartwarming nighttime water show that tells the tale of a little lantern’s quest to reunite with family for the annual celebration of good luck and fortune. Check the Disneyland app for showtimes.</p><p><br>More fun includes crafts, Chinese calligraphy demos and the Lucky Wishes Wall, where you can write your hopes for 2023. More festival items will be at Paradise Garden Grill and Lucky Fortune Cookery.  </p><p>Beginning January 20, Raya will be there. Under a forest canopy deep in the heart of Redwood Creek Challenge Trail, you may find Raya for a meet and greet.</p><p><strong>Disney California Adventure Food &amp; Wine Festival, March 3 – April 25, 2023</strong></p><p>For 2023 the festival includes 12 marketplaces that feature sweet and savory foods along with cocktails, beer, wine and non-alcoholic drinks. The Sip and Savor pass will be available for purchase at the festival.</p><p>Entertainment includes the Jammin’ Chefs, Chef Goofy, and the Alice’s Wonderland Bakery Unbirthday Party show.

These include the Carthay Circle Winemaker Receptions, Trader Sam’s Mixology Seminars, a Craftsman Grill mixology seminar and a Grand Tasting event at the Disneyland Hotel.</p><p><br>--</p><p><strong>Aulani, A Disney Resort &amp; Spa Refurbishment Update: Ka Maka Pool</strong></p><p><br>Ka Maka Pool and Grotto, including Ka Maka whirlpool spa, will be unavailable from December 5 - 9, 2022.

Top Picks: 2022 Disney World & Disneyland Christmas Foodie Guide
<p><strong>Disneyland Adventureland Treehouse will Return with a New Look in 2023<br></strong><br></p><p>There are more details about the future of the treehouse in Adventureland at Disneyland park.</p><p><br>When it reopens in 2023 the Adventureland Treehouse will be themed after Walt Disney’s Swiss Family Robinson tree house--just as it is in Walt Disney World. This is likely because Disney is working on a remake of the 1960 movie as a new Swiss Family series on Disney+.</p><p><br>The renewed treehouse will have new environments created among the branches of the giant tree on the shores of the Jungle River. From the mother’s music den to the young sons’ nature room to the teenage daughter’s astronomer’s loft, everything is created from found objects, natural resources, and pure ingenuity (just like the Disney fairies do). More news to come as it's released</p><p><br><strong>--</strong></p><p><br><strong>Walt Disney World Pool Closure </strong></p><p><br>The Oak Manor leisure pool in Magnolia Bend at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort Riverside was recently closed for a brief refurbishment.</p><p>Ol’ Man Island and other leisure pools around the resort will remain open and available. The Oak Manor pool will reopen at some point in mid-December.</p><p><strong>--<br></strong><br></p><p><strong>Festive Foodie Guide to Resorts at Walt Disney World</strong></p><p><strong>Available at Various Resorts </strong></p><ul> <li>Apple Tart: Classic apple tart with crunchy streusel and cinnamon glaze <em>(Available Dec. 25 only; mobile order available)</em>; Available at: <ul> <li>World Premiere at Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort</li> <li>Intermission at Disney’s All-Star Music Resort</li> <li>End Zone at Disney’s All-Star Music Resort</li> <li>Landscape of Flavors at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort</li> <li>Centertown Market at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort</li> <li>Sassagoula Floatworks at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter</li> <li>Riverside Mill Food Court at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside</li> <li>Everything POP Shopping &amp; Dining at Disney’s Pop Century Resort</li> </ul> </li> <li>Christmas Feast: Roasted turkey dinner, cornbread stuffing, mashed potatoes with turkey gravy, seasonal vegetables, and cranberry relish <em>(Available Dec. 25 only; mobile order available)</em>; Available at: <ul> <li>World Premiere at Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort</li> <li>Intermission at Disney’s All-Star Music Resort</li> <li>End Zone at Disney’s All-Star Music Resort</li> <li>Landscape of Flavors at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort</li> <li>Centertown Market at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort</li> <li>Contempo Cafe at Disney’s Contemporary Resort</li> <li>Sassagoula Floatworks at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter</li> <li>Riverside Mill Food Court at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside</li> <li>Capt.

Gingerbread Guide to Christmas Holidays at Disney World and Disneyland
<p><strong>Foodie Guide to Disney Holiday Gingerbread Treats and Displays 2022<br></strong><br></p><p>If you've ever been to Disneyland or Walt Disney World during the holidays, you know that the sights and smells of Disney gingerbread displays are the true showstopper. </p><p><br>So Disney pastry teams have been hard at work bringing gingerbread holiday traditions to life for 2022. </p><p>Here is everything you need to know about Disney Christmas gingerbread for this holiday season.</p><p><br><strong><em>At Walt Disney World<br></em></strong><br></p><p>As always there are multiple gingerbread displays to discover at Disney resort hotels. The biggest and most famous of all is the gingerbread house at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort &amp; Spa. This life size gingerbread creation features clouds of cinnamon smoke puffing out of its chimney. The gingerbread for this storybook gingerbread house is made from a classic Austrian recipe. The Grand Floridian gingerbread house decked out with white chocolate, candy canes, edible snowflakes, sugar poinsettias, and 25 hidden Mickeys! On the porches surrounding the house, you’ll find an 85-pound chocolate Santa, nutcrackers, toy soldiers, and snowmen that have all been hand-painted by the Grand Floridian Bakery team.</p><p>This year, for the 50th Anniversary celebration at Walt Disney World Resort, the gingerbread displays feature extra colors and accents inspired by the signature EARidescent look.

Since 1999, this resort has been home to the life-sized carousel (and it actually turns). This carousel and its horses are created with chocolate, sugar, and fondant along with hand-painted characters and hand-crafted gingerbread shingles and snowflakes decorating the display.

It arrives on November 11 at 11:00 a.m. The 50th Anniversary Themed Castle Display is a Mary Blair-inspired castle designed by Walt Disney Imagineers and will feature a brand-new 50thanniversary overlay… and 11 hidden 5-legged goats! </p><p>Don’t forget to check for the limited-edition pins, mugs, and holiday ornaments to remember the season.

Dates and times will vary by resort.</p><p>At the Disney World Parks</p><p>·       The American Adventure at EPCOT will have a display beginning November 25. This unique display recreates classic monuments in America and EPCOT with gingerbread versions of the Lincoln Memorial, Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, The American Adventure building with Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts &amp; Barbecue, and a Festival Kiosk.</p><p>·       The gingerbread displays are not just found on land – they’re also taking to the high seas with the Disney Cruise Line fleet! All five ships will continue the yearly tradition of having the pastry teams onboard build a unique atrium display on the ships. The Disney Wish will join for its inaugural holiday season with an 8-foot-tall, eight-layer masterpiece. Each gingerbread house is unique for each ship and the Disney pastry teams compete to see which Disney ship has the best house!</p><p><strong><em>At Disneyland<br></em></strong><br></p><p>Inside the Haunted Mansion, Disneyland guests will uncover the Haunted Mansion Gingerbread House. The pastry team takes over 20 days to bring this nearly 300-pound creation with three moving elements to life. </p><p>Starting November 14, Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel &amp; Spa will be home once again to one of its best holiday traditions – the “Grand” Gingerbread House. This giant gingerbread replica of the hotel is a holiday highlight and a must-see in the lobby. Standing 7 feet tall and 12 feet wide, the structure is created from more than 600 pounds of gingerbread, 600 pounds of powdered sugar, 250 pounds of fondant, 1 pound of pixie dust, and features 25 hidden Mickeys!</p><p>After taking in the display, you can buy a Limited-Edition Snow Globe Pin featuring Chip ‘n Dale or stop by the GHC Holiday Cart to get holiday treats, including:</p><ul> <li>Mickey Gingerbread</li> <li>Poinsettia Cookie</li> <li>Snowman Cookie</li> <li>Christmas Cookie</li> <li>Hanukkah Cookie</li> <li>Holiday Cookie Box</li> <li>Assorted Macarons <strong><em>(New) </em></strong> </li> <li>Kwanzaa Sweet Potato Loaf <strong><em>(New) </em></strong> </li> <li>New Year’s Cookie <strong><em>(New) </em></strong> </li> <li>Rice Krispie</li> <li>Hot Chocolate</li> <li>Hot Apple Cider <em>(Available with Bailey’s Irish Cream, Captain Morgan, Grand Marnier, or Rumchata)</em> </li> <li>Waffle Shot <em>(Available with milk, low-fat milk, chocolate milk, or eggnog) </em> </li> <li>Waffle Shot <em>(Available with Bailey’s Irish Cream, Captain Morgan, Grand Marnier, Rumchata, Amaretto, Butterscotch Schnapps, Rumple Minze, Crown Royal Apple, Skrewball Whiskey, Fireball Whiskey, Louis the 13th) </em> </li> </ul><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.

Here's what's in store in the new Blizzard Beach.</p><p><br><strong>Frozen friends at Tike’s Peak</strong></p><p>Tike’s Peak is the kids' area and it now features Frozen fun for the little ones. Mini slides and attractions, an Anna and Elsa igloo castle, a wading pool area with Olaf and friends, there's Frozen fun for every kid.</p><p><strong>Blizzard Beach for the Holiday Season</strong></p><p>Feel the holidays there are limited-time food and beverage offerings such as Orange Bird DOLE Whip cone and Peppermint Milkshake. Through December 31, there will be a merry atmosphere with daily snowfall, holiday music, festive inner tubes and even a tropical-dressed Santa.</p><p><strong>Take the Plunge Down Summit Plummet</strong></p><p>Did you know that Summit Plummet is the fastest attraction and scariest ride at Walt Disney World? Descend Mount Gushmore in a near-vertical drop on the tallest and fastest freefall body slide in town.</p><p><strong>New and Old Favorite Food and Drink Creations</strong></p><p>New food at Blizzard Beach includes Cajun Shrimp and Grits, and Watta-Melon Passion Lemonade from Lottawatta Lounge. Returning favorite flavors include seasonal DOLE Whip offerings, a Double Bacon Cheeseburger and the iconic 50th Ice Dream Sand Pail Sundae.</p><p><strong>Polar Patios are the Way to Go for Upscale Blizzard Beach</strong></p><p>You can rent a private patio at Blizzard Beach complete with polar perks like comfortable seating options and refillable drink mugs for a relaxing break from the action.</p><p><strong>Toboggan Runners, the Race is On</strong></p><p>Get in the holiday spirit and zoom down a water slide toboggan style. The course is full of dips, hills and fierce competition as you race against friends and family to see who will win.</p><p><strong>Family Fun at Teamboat Springs</strong></p><p>Teamboat Springs is one of the longest whitewater raft adventures in the world. There are twists and turns, unpredictable rapids and drenching sprays of water as these oversized inner-tube rafts venture down the waterslide.</p><p><strong>The Ski-riffic Way to the Top of Mount Gushmore</strong></p><p>Take in the view of the snowy setting and embark on a leisurely journey to the top of Mount Gushmore on the Blizzard Beach chairlift.

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.

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?

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.

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;

Victoria and Albert's, Hoop Dee Doo and More Dates You Need to Know
<p><strong>When is Victoria &amp; Albert’s Reopening at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort?</strong></p><p><br>Victoria &amp; Albert's at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort is reopening on Thursday, July 28, 2022 and you can make reservations starting June 20. </p><p><br>The reopening has "enhanced flavors" and a newly reimagined Victorian-style dining room complete with murals &amp; wall coverings that showcase timeless elegance and subtle inspiration of a whimsical garden.</p><p><br>If you want to up your experience even further, the private Queen Victoria’s Room or the upscale Chef’s Table (with a front-row seat to the chefs at work) are other options. The world-class wine collection has over 500 options in the wine cellar and is perfectly paired with the dishes by V&amp;A sommeliers. There are also delicious non-alcoholic cocktails that can be paired as well. </p><p>Dishes on the tasting menu are continually evolving. When it reopens, you will be able to sample dishes such as Colorado Lamb with pickled blueberry and violet mustard, and line-caught turbot with fennel fondue, and Pernod beurre blanc. If the finest of beef is your thing, you can experience the Wagyu A-5 Miyazaki with sauce romesco and potato rösti. Chocolate lovers will enjoy the Spectrum of Chocolate, an ombré featuring specialty sourced chocolates with accents of buttermilk, Grand Mariner, and vanilla.</p><p>A reminder about Victoria &amp; Albert’s dress code. This is an upscale and intimate dining experience and the culinary crown jewel of Walt Disney World. Guests are required to dress accordingly for the upscale experience with semi-formal to formal attire that respects the restaurant’s elegance and opulence. There is also a minimum age limit of 10.</p><p>--</p><p><strong>What's on the Menu when Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue Reopens on June 23, 2022<br></strong><br></p><p>The long-running classic Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue will be reopening its doors on Thursday, June 23, 2022 with an updated version of this fan favorite musical extravaganza accompanied by a family-style feast. 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.

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.

The Longest Running Show at Walt Disney World is Coming Back
<p><strong>Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue Returns Summer 2022<br></strong><br></p><p>Get ready to welcome back another old favorite as the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue returns this summer to Walt Disney World. 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. When it returns, Hoop-Dee-Doo will have a few updates to its script and scenery, while staying true to the treasured experience that it’s been known for all these years.</p><p>-- </p><p> </p><p><strong>Olaf Will be Pleased, as Hugs are Back across the Disney travel universe<br></strong><br></p><p>As early as April 18, Disney will start reintroducing traditional character greetings at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts, as well as aboard Disney Cruise Line and at Disney Aulani Resort in Hawaii. 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. Guests will learn more about their technology and culture as they move through the pavilion, and discover how our two cultures are similar in so many ways.</p><p>We will report more details as they emerge in future episodes. So stay tuned to 1923 Main Street as the news comes in.</p><p>--</p><p><strong>2022 EPCOT International Food &amp; Wine Festival Begins July 14<br></strong><br></p><p>The EPCOT International Food &amp; Wine Festival is returning to Walt Disney World Resort this summer, from July 14 through November 19, 2022.</p><p>It will be back with everything that you know and love about the festival and we will share full details on the event as it draws nearer. But if you plan to attend, you now know the dates!</p><p>--</p><p><strong>Connections Café and Eatery Opening Soon<br></strong><br></p><p>Connections Café and Eatery will soon open its doors at EPCOT. This new dining experience embraces cultures from around the world and will bring them to life in true EPCOT fashion. </p><p>Here is a preview of the menu for this highly anticipated restaurant. 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.

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.

What's Replacing Disney's Magical Express? The Sunshine Flyer
<p><strong>The Sunshine Flyer is Ready to Replace Disney's Magical Express<br></strong><br></p><p>Ever since Disney announced it would be ending its popular Magical Express service in January 2022, Disney travelers have been wondering: So what now?</p><p>This week, Transportation Management Services (TMS) announced <strong>The Sunshine Flyer</strong> as a new service that would transport guests from MCO to Walt Disney World resort hotels. </p><p><br>The Sunshine Flyer offers a themed experience that is based on old-fashioned railway passenger cars and vintage stream train engines. </p><p><strong>A Design and Themed Experience that Walt Disney Would Love<br></strong><br></p><p>The service aims to take the stress of airport transportation for Disney guests in Orlando and help to kickstart the magic of a family vacation from the moment they board the bus at the airport. Some key facts about The Sunshine Flyer:</p><ul> <li>The exteriors of the buses are designed to look like old-fashioned locomotives or passenger cars (and there are several different designs)</li> <li>Staff will be dressed as 1920s rail conductors and engineers</li> <li>The buses will have entertainment throughout the trip</li> <li>Ticket pre-sales are now available and service begins on February 1, 2022</li> </ul><p>There is also a charitable component to the launch of The Sunshine Flyer in honor of Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary:</p><ul> <li>For the first 50 days of service, 50% of Sunshine Flyer ticket sales will be donated to Make-A-Wish Central &amp; Northern Florida.</li> <li>Make-A-Wish children and their families will receive complimentary service from the Sunshine Flyer for their Disney wishes indefinitely</li> </ul><p>The Sunshine Flyer’s buses are late model, premium motorcoaches. 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.

There are special things to do not typically available during regular park visits.</p><p>With each ticketed Disneyland After Dark event, you get up to four hours of fun after the parks close to regular visitors. Plus, you can arrive early for a three-hour pre-party mix-in at the same park before the event begins.</p><p><br>At each event, you also get unlimited digital downloads of Disney PhotoPass photos taken during the party, plus commemorative keepsakes including a souvenir credential and event guide map.</p><p><br>Here are the details for each of the upcoming themed nights:</p><p><br><strong>Disneyland After Dark: Sweethearts’ Nite</strong></p><p><em>February 1, 3, 8, 10 and 14, 2022, at Disneyland Park</em> (now on sale on <a href="https://disneyland.disney.go.com/events-tours/disneyland/after-dark-sweethearts-nite/">Disneyland.com</a>)</p><p><br>Sweethearts’ Nite at <strong>Disneyland Park</strong> on five separate nights in February.

Planning a Disney World Vacation During Covid: What to Consider
<p><strong>Not Your Usual Walt Disney World Vacation</strong></p><p>Planning a Walt Disney World vacation during covid is very different. With no FastPasses, limited park hopping and a desire to keep safe and healthy during our stay, we had to do a lot of things differently. </p><p>Plus, with not every resort hotel or restaurant fully available for booking, there are extra layers of things to consider. In Episode 85 of <strong>The Disney Travel Podcast</strong> at <a href="https://1923mainstreet.com"><strong>1923 Main Street</strong></a> we share what we discovered as we worked hard to craft a unique Walt Disney World vacation that would work for our family.</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.
