Yet further clarification of the "90+10" dining reservation window

Due to some miscommunication, last week we did not correctly pass along the process for making "90+10" dining reservations when you've booked your stay through a travel agency. We stated that, because travel agency reservations are entered into the Disney travel system differently than those made directly by individuals, if you had booked your reservation through a travel agent, your agent needed to make the call to take advantage of the extra 10 days of reservations. That is incorrect.

In fact, what was misunderstood is that your reservation number from the travel agency is not the number that would be in Disney's reservation system. You would need to get your Disney confirmation number from your travel agent, and then you can use that to make your own dining reservations. It is the travel agency reservation number that would not appear in the Disney system. We're sorry for that confusion.

Thanks to MousePlanet readers Rob Kucinski and Lisa Cantwell for bringing that error to our attention.

Living Seas construction curtails tank tours

Last week, we reported that, despite the closure of the Living Seas pavilion for refurbishment, in-tank Epcot DiveQuest, Seas Aqua Tour and Dolphins in Depth programs would continue to operate unless the construction interfered with the residents of the tank. We are now hearing that at least the Dolphins in Depth tour has stopped accepting new reservations for tours from August 22 through November 30, though currently scheduled tours during that period have not been cancelled at this time. Dates during that period may be released with short notice, most likely based on the construction schedule, so keep checking back if you really want to go on the tour during that time. At this time, the Epcot DiveQuest and Seas Aqua Tour are unaffected.

Seasonal hour reductions appear on schedule

Disney has begun scheduling late-season hour reductions at the parks. Beginning August 21, the Magic Kingdom is dropping nightly performances of SpectroMagic and Wishes (with Wishes running at 10:00 each night) to running SpectroMagic along with Wishes three times a week and Wishes running at the 9:00 p.m. park closing time four nights a week. Effective September 1, Wishes runs at the 8:30 park close four nights per week, with Spectro continuing to run three nights a week. Starting September 11, on the four nights per week that the park closes early without Spectro, Wishes runs at the 8:00 park closing time.

Over at the Disney-MGM Studios, the Lights, Motors, Action! stunt show has shifted its schedule earlier in the day, with performances now taking place at 11:00 a.m., 1:55 p.m. and 4:40 p.m. Through August 20, the Stars and Motor Cars Parade will run at 5:30 p.m. and Fantasmic will run at 9:30 p.m. From August 21 through September 17, the parade will run at 5:00 p.m. while Fantasmic will begin at 9:00 p.m. Starting September 18, the parade kicks off at 4:30 p.m. and Fantasmic starts at 8:30 p.m. It's uncertain as to whether the stunt show will change its schedule on August 21 and September 18, as well.

Finally, starting on August 14, Disney's Animal Kingdom will move its closing time up from 6:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily, except for August 16, 18, 19 and 20, which will still have a 6:00 closing time. Epcot, as always, will be unaffected, continuing to close at 9:00 p.m.

Disney has also begun seasonal adjustments at quick service eateries in the Magic Kingdom. The Tomorrowland Terrace Noodle Station and El Pirata y el Perico Restaurante have closed for the month of August. The Pinocchio Village Haus Restaurant have shortened their operating hours during August and will only be open from 11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Outdoor vending carts will also reduce their hours.

Epcot Extra Magic Hour news

Twice-a-week Extra Magic Hours at Epcot have been extended through the end of August. We are hearing that the only attractions closed during these evenings will be Universe of Energy, Innoventions, and the films in France, China and Canada. Some World Showcase table service dining locations will also be open late. It has not been determined whether the closure of The Living Seas later this month will trigger the opening of another attraction. In addition, there are now six locations at Epcot where you can pick up your EMG wristbands. The six locations are the main entrance, the breezeways at Innoventions East and West, the main walkway between Future World and World Showcase, the bridge between World Showcase Plaza and Mexico, and the American Adventure.

Teen diver nearly drowns during underwater restoration work near Dolphin resort

A 16-year-old diver was rescued after nearly drowning in Crescent Lake while doing shore restoration work near the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort, and remains in critical condition at press time. Alan Kringel was working for Anchor Marine Environmental Services, doing underwater work on a barrier in the lake. The company had been hired to perform the restoration project.

According to an Orange County Sheriff's Office report, only Kringel's hands and arms surfaced when he finished work Tuesday. Worried, the other members of his four-man team tugged at a rope attached to his helmet, but only the helmet surfaced. Crew members found him tangled in another rope used for diving and hauled him back into the boat, according to the sheriff's report.

Kringel was not breathing and had no pulse when pulled from the water, and rescuers performed CPR to rescusitate him. He was transported to Orlando Regional Medical Center by helicopter.

Kringel, who received his diving certification eight months ago, had been working for the company for about six months. The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating the incident.

Increasing Internet usage blamed for closure of Disney call center

Due to increasing usage of the Internet for purchase of merchandise from Disney Direct and reservations at Walt Disney World, Disney is closing its call center in Kansas City by February. The Disney Direct Marketing Onstage Teleservice office is currently staffed by 50 full-time managers and workers and about 200 part-time and seasonal employees. The office's primary function was handling sales for the Disney Catalog, but they also handled overflow calls for Walt Disney World reservations. Some workers at the office, which opened in 1990, are being offered the opportunity to transfer to other call centers. The remainder will get a severance package.

MouseFest events announced

The schedule for MouseFest 2005 is starting to fill up. Many Web sites have announced gatherings to be held all over Walt Disney World and aboard the Disney Wonder during the event. Check the MouseFest Web site (link) for details.

Thus far, MousePlanet is sponsoring three events for this third annual gathering of the Disney Internet community. First and foremost is a mini-MouseAdventure event, a shortened version of MousePlanet's signature event (link). This marks the first time that the event has been held in Florida. (Last year, a "taste of MouseAdventure" was included in the MouseFest program guide). The event will run from approximately 10:00 a.m. until noon on Thursday, December 1. The mini-MouseAdventure will be immediately followed by our second event, the second annual Mike Scopa Dole Whip Meet, at Aloha Isle in Adventureland.

Our final scheduled event will be the first annual MousePad Shocolate Mousssse Meet at Boulangerie Patisserie in Epcot's France pavilion at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 3, following the Mega Mouse Meet event at the Walt Disney World Swan hotel. For more on the origin of the Shocolate Mousssse phenomenon among MousePlanet readers, please see this thread on our MousePad discussion forums.

More information will be released about these events in the near future.

Ears to the ground

…Reservations for the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival are going fast. In fact, over half of the available reservations for the entire festival were sold out by the second day. If the event that you want to attend is sold out, Disney has started a waiting list. Call 407-WDW-FEST (407-939-3378) to make a reservation or get on the waiting list.

…Preparations are apparently underway to reopen the toy shop on Main Street, U.S.A. The store, currently home to the Disney's PhotoPass staff, will continue to house the photographers for another couple of months before being converted back to retail space. Additional telephone and computer wires are reportedly being run into the shop, and the back stockroom has bee filled with toys.

…We are hearing a rumor that Disney is considering bringing back an Ultimate Park Hopper-type ticket some time next year. In the wake of the conversion to Magic Your Way passes, the all-inclusive ticket appears to be the pass that guests miss the most. Of course, if it does return, look for pricing to similarly front-weighted to the MYW passes, where the price per day gets drastically cheaper the longer you stay.

…The Magic Kingdom is continuing to ramp down from peak status. The Enchanted Tiki Room, Hall of Presidents, Liberty Belle Riverboat and Carousel of Progress are no longer included in Extra Magic Hours.

…With the launch of the space shuttle Discovery, Epcot's Mission: Space attraction is running with an active shuttle program for the first time. Opened a few months after the Columbia disaster, the attraction has not had the benefit of a space program to help pique interest.

…The Chip 'n' Dale meet and greet that normally takes place near the Jungle Cruise is moving to the Adventureland Verandah, displacing Aladdin and Jasmine, who are moving to the Agrabah Bazaar near the Flying Carpets ride.
