News and Views

Not a lot of new news this week, but a number of updates.

MousePlanet events at MouseFest

Just a reminder that MouseFest is scheduled for November 30 - December 5 (land) and December 4-8 (sea). MouseFest Gold Sponsor MousePlanet is organizing three events and officially participating in a fourth during the land portion. For more information and how to let us know that you're coming, visit our MouseFest events page (link). For more information on MouseFest, visit the MouseFest event site (link).

Update: Theater in the Wild

Last week, we ran a new rumor from one of our intrepid reporters, who heard that the Theater in the Wild would be completely demolished after the Tarzan Rocks show closes in March. We have since confirmed that the theater will not be demolished. The stage, lighting and sound system will all be gutted and the theater will be completely enclosed, as with the Lion King theater in Camp Minnie-Mickey. When the theater is completed, a new Finding Nemo-based show will debut in late 2006 or early 2007.

Update: Family suites at All-Star Music

Last week we reported on the status of the test of family suites being created from two smaller rooms at the All-Star Music Resort. We've since learned that there are only two of the suites created so far, and not a whole heck of a lot was done to create them. The inside doors from connecting rooms have been removed to make an open walkway from one room to the other, and the windows have been replaced. The kids will have beds in one room and the parents will have another. The information regarding the possible completion of Phase 2 of the Pop Century Resort as all-suites is still valid, though.

Update: Disney-MGM Studios renaming

Still nothing confirmed, but I'm going to modify the prediction that I made last week. Due to a change in several of the indicators that I based it on, plus a tip from a little birdie, I'm going to predict that the change in the name of the Disney-MGM Studios to Walt Disney Studios Florida will take place on January 1, rather than December 1. Oh, and disregard the fact that Fantasmic does not appear on the park schedule on the Walt Disney World Web site. It will be taking place. We haven't heard anything about any closure for refurbishment.

Update: Timekeeper

Last week, in a short note regarding the Carousel of Progress' return to “seasonal” status, we also noted that the seasonal Timekeeper attraction had not even opened for July 4 this year. Reader Michael Patalano has pointed out that we did indeed miss the fact that Timekeeper was in fact open on July 3 and 4. We stand corrected.

Merchandise news

The next couple of weeks are filled with merchandise events at Walt Disney World. On Friday, October 21, author Ridley Pearson signs copies of his book and Audio CD, Kingdom Keepers, on the Contemporary Resort's fourth floor Concourse near BVG Gifts, from 9-11 a.m. and 5-8 p.m. (link). Meanwhile, that same day over at the Days of Christmas shop in Downtown Disney Marketplace, Christopher Radko holds a signing event for his new “Cinderella Castle – Golden Edition” Christmas ornament from 5-8 p.m.\ (link).

The next Tuesday, October 25, Imagineer Jason Surrell signs his latest book Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies at the Pirates Bazaar in Adventureland at the Magic Kingdom from 1-3 p.m. and 5-8 p.m. (link). Next Friday, there is a release of the newest Walt Disney Classics Collection, “To The Head of The Team, Zero!” at Art of Disney at Downtown Disney Marketplace, Art of Disney at Epcot and The Animation Gallery at Disney-MGM Studios (link). The piece will also be available by phone. Be warned, however, that the piece goes on sale at the Disneyland Resort one week earlier, so there's no guarantee of how many of the 500 numbered pieces will be left by the time they go on sale at Walt Disney World.

Update: Disney's Magical Express

Disney has begun some new changes on the departure end of Disney's Magical Express. Airline check-in hours have been changed to 5 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Hours were formerly 6 a.m. to 2 p.m.) This helps those with early morning flights, but for those with late flights, you've got to check your luggage and get your boarding passes before you leave for the airport.

Meanwhile, the layoffs continue with car and shuttle services in competition with Disney's Magical Express, while protests continue to escalate. Taxi drivers staged a job action a couple of weeks ago, filling slots but refusing to pick up passengers. In addition, several Mears cars and vans got flat tires when a load a nails was spread in their parking lanes.

Disney has avoided getting involved in the fray, complying with the changes imposed by Orlando International Airport. Starting November 1, greeters meet DME customers at baggage claim on Level 2 instead of in the terminal on Level 3. Also as of November 1, Disney will stop allowing guests without reservations to use the DME service. All Disney literature will be updated to reflect the new process.

Ears to the ground

…It appears that another water pipe burst in the Contemporary Resort on Thursday night, leaving the hotel temporarily without hot water and shorting out the escalator between the monorail station and the fourth floor concourse. Hopefully the ongoing plumbing problems will be addressed as part of the ongoing refurbishment of guest rooms.

…The Mandara Spa in the Walt Disney World Dolphin resort is now open. With 13 treatment rooms, a steam room, a tea garden, meditation garden and nail and hair salon in its Bali-themed 12,000 square feet, it sounds like a great new option for those looking for a spa treatment at Walt Disney World.

…In the category of “you knew it was going to happen,” the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party on October 31 has sold out.

…Raglan Road Irish Pub has started a soft opening leading to its official grand opening later this week.

…Tiger Woods has finally committed to play in the FUNAI/Walt Disney World Classic this week.

…The Auto Show in Motion is returning to Epcot November 3-6.

…Magic Kingdom's late-December fireworks schedule will have Holiday Wishes showing from December 22-29 and the special New Year's edition of Fantasy in the Sky December 30-31.

…We're hearing that Cirque du Soleil's La Nouba has been struggling to fill seats recently.
