Cindy's adds character lunch

Beginning Monday, June 10, Cinderella's Royal Table added characters to lunch. Prices are $23.99 per adult and $12.99 per child (ages 3-11). The new meal is subject to the same $10/$5 deposit and cancellation policies as breakfast.

Expect the same set of characters at lunch as those that appear at the character breakfast, but be aware that Cinderella will not be seen in the dining room during any performances of Cinderellabration, since she cannot be in the dining room inside the castle if she is on stage out in front of the castle.

For those counting 90 days back from June 10, the first meals are available for booking now.

Union asks Disney to reopen contract

After approving a contract offer under pressure from Disney on last November 18, the Service Trades Council Union (STCU) has asked the company to revisit some health care provisions of that contract. The union, which represents about 40 percent of all workers at Walt Disney World, recommended that its members adopt the contract after Disney warned that they would not extend the previous contract past the date of the vote, and would begin unilaterally enforcing the higher health care costs in the proposal without the proposed raises.

Now, the 22,000-member STCU is asking the company to implement an on-site pharmacy dispensing free generic drugs to employees, and freeze health care co-payments that are scheduled to rise in the contract's final two years.

Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees (HERE) Local 362, which is one of the six member unions of the STCU, is pushing the free generic pharmacy as a cost-saving measure for both Disney and its employees, stating that switching to a model that gives more incentive to buy generic drugs would save the company over a billion dollars and employees well over half a billion. The union is using numbers from an analysis provided by Sav-Rx Prescription Drug Services, which runs a similar pharmacy for the union's divisions in Atlantic City, Chicago and Las Vegas. The analysis was presented during contract negotiations and rejected by Disney, which claimed that the problem with the concept was that costs for brand-name medications would increase dramatically and offset any savings created by the generic drugs.

The STCU claims that, with tourism and Disney's profits from the resort both up, the company is in a position to help out the employees. Disney responded that they are planning to honor the terms of the contract, and would be willing to discuss changes during negotiations for the next agreement. The current contract expires on April 28, 2007.

Light, Motors, Action! soft opening/test and adjust

Two new attractions begin soft opening dress rehearsals this week, while two seasonal shows are also opening up this coming weekend for a two-week run.

The Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show at the Disney-MGM Studios held cast previews on Sunday, and soft-opens to guests on Monday. We have details from a source at the Studios:

While Lights, Motors, Action! will be opening March 14th, it will only be for ONE WEEK (March 14-19) for ONE show a day at 3 pm in order to get reactions from guests, test the queue configuration and Fastpass system.

These shows will be a test and adjust viewing. Once the week is up, the attraction will close again to finish the last bit of tweaking they need to do. (The show currently runs at 45 mins, they want it at a 35 min show.) Also, because the crew needs to get used to performing with the jet skis (which won't be ready until some time in April, due to circumstances beyond their control).

However, occasionally it will open for a day or two, only one show a day again for another test and adjust.

More openings

The new Cinderellabration show debuts at the Magic Kingdom on Thursday, March 17 at 10:40 and 11:40 a.m. and 4:35, 5:35, 6:35 and 7:35 p.m. Beginning Friday, March 18, is adds a 9:40 a.m. show and drop the 7:35 p.m. show from its regular schedule. No word yet on how many changes have been made to turn Tokyo's nighttime show into a daytime show for Walt Disney World.

Epcot's Wonders of Life pavillion begins its Easter-time run this coming Sunday, March 20, and opens through April 2. The three main attractions (Body Wars, The Making of Me, and Cranium Command) are expected to be up and running.

The Timekeeper at the Magic Kingdom opens for business this coming Saturday, March 19, and runs through April 2.

Food and beverage news

The Tomorrowland Terrace Noodle Station, formerly the Plaza Pavilion, holds its grand opening on Tuesday.

Aunt Polly's Dockside Inn on Tom Sawyer Island reopened on Friday, and remains open (operating from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.) for the foreseeable future.

El Pirata Y El Perico Restaurante reopened yesterday, and operates with hours of 11 a.m to 4 p.m. until March 19th, then with hours of 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. from March 19 through April 2 before closing back down until the next peak season.

Last Monday, all four Magic Kingdom Park hot dog carts began offering a bundled meal featuring a hot dog, chips and a large beverage for $6.50.

From March 20 to April 2, Cosmic Rays will be serving breakfast from 7 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. The food choices, which will only be available at the Chicken bay, will be very similiar to the breakfast offerings at the Electric Umbrella at Epcot.

Tom Joyner returning to Walt Disney World

Showing no concern after being washed out last year by Hurricane Frances, the Tom Joyner Family Reunion will try again this year. The event, scheduled for September 2–4, features performances by musicians, comedians and gospel acts, centered at the Coronado Springs Resort and the Disney–MGM Studios. Performers scheduled so far include Damon Wayans, Ashanti, Omarion, Hammer, Shirley Caesar, Dr. Bobby Jones, Smokie Norful and Lil iRocc, with more to be announced. For more information, check out Joyner's Web site (link) or call 1-888-TJ-FAMILY (1-888-853-2645).

Hour extensions

It's well-known that the weeks before and after Easter are two of the busiest weeks of the year at Walt Disney World, and park hours are lengthened in response. This year is no exception, as Disney is instituting what may the the longest regular hours since opening, if you include Extra Magic Hours.

From March 20 through April 1, the regular hours for the Magic Kingdom park are 8 a.m. until midnight, for a 16-hour regular day. However, the park is holding Morning Extra Magic Hours every day during that period, lengthening the day to 17 hours.

And just in case the overnight custodial staff didn't have enough problems resetting the park in less than seven hours every day, on March 23 and March 30, the evening Extra Magic Hours have the park hours for resort guests run from 7 a.m. until 3 a.m., for a whopping 20-hour day! If you are in the park first thing in the morning on March 24 or March 31 and the custodial staff is still busy making the park nice and fresh, give them a nice big thank-you for making it all happen in four hours.

In addition, during that stretch from March 20 to April 1, the Magic Kingdom's Share a Dream Come True parade makes its way through the crowded park twice a day, at 12:30 and 3:30 p.m.

Also, Disney's Animal Kingdom operates from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day from March 20 to April 1. Morning Extra Magic Hours open the park at 7 a.m. on March 26. Evening Extra Magic Hours make for very late nights at that park, running until 11 p.m. on March 22 and 29.

Expanding the nursery at Disney's Animal Kingdom

In the wake of two elephant births at Disney's Animal Kingdom over the last two years, the park is celebrating the birth of a rhinoceros calf. A Southern White Rhino named Kendi, who was herself the first rhinoceros to be born at the park in 1999, gave birth to a female calf named Kayla after 16 months of gestation. Kayla makes her public debut later this spring.

Also later this spring, another elephant birth is expected at Disney's Animal Kingdom. A 26-year-old African elephant named Ibala is expected to deliver her calf in April. The new calf would join Tufani, born in May 2003, and Kianga, born in July 2004, as the prime progeny of the park's very successful elephant breeding program.

Resorts host egg hunts

Disney Vacation Club and Walt Disney World Resort hotels host a variety of special activities to celebrate the Easter bunny on March 27. The Beach Club, BoardWalk, Saratoga Springs and Hilton Head Island resorts are among the many Disney destinations planning candy-scramble events for Easter Sunday. A whistle signals that it's time for participating children to collect as much candy as they can.

The Old Key West resort is taking a different approach, as children will collect plastic eggs that can be redeemed for candy. The youngest children will still take part in a traditional candy scramble. There will also be some surprise events, so be sure to check at the front desk for details.

Vero Beach update

Repairs at Disney's Vero Beach Resort continue in the wake of the destruction from the direct hits by hurricanes Frances and Jeanne. While the majority of the resort has been repaired, reconstruction work continues on the resort's boardwalk through April, and taking at least through the summer to complete roof repairs.

In the meantime, the rest of the resort's operations continue. DVC members can pre-book turtle-walk programs, which take place on Monday evenings in June and July, through the Caribbean Conservation Corporation. The program costs $20 for the first family member and $10 per additional family member. Participants receive membership in the CCC and an adopt-a-turtle packet containing sea turtle “adoption” certificates for each family member. Pre-booking the program allows family members to name the sea turtles that they adopt. To register to take part in the turtle walk, call 1-800-678-7853. Space is limited.
