Universal hikes prices, offers online deals

As expected, Universal Orlando has joined Walt Disney World and SeaWorld Orlando in the annual rite of the raising of the ticket prices. Universal matched Disney's one-day, one-park price hike in going from $59.75 for adults and $48 for children ages 3-9 to $63 and $52, respectively. The increase went into effect on Saturday.

However, Universal has thrown in a twist. If you purchase your ticket online, you can buy it for the old price. (Note: at press time, Universal's web site still showed the old prices, so you could buy your ticket even cheaper until the web site catches up with the new pricing.)

In addition, while two-day, two-park tickets went from $104.95 for all to $107.95 for adults and $97.95 for children ages 3-9 when purchased at the gate, the bonus pass, which is only available online, will not only continue to cost $99.95 per ticket but will also provide admission for up to five consecutive days.

The online-purchase savings is possible because it will allow Universal to lower their staffing needs at the ticket windows.

Everest cast previews

On Saturday, a number of lucky cast members were able to participate in testing of Expedition: Everest. The testing also included the filming of a commercial for the attraction, which is being directed by Rob Cohen (director of The Fast and the Furious). When the cast members reported at 7 a.m., the temperature was so cold that the track had frozen, and portable heaters were necessary to thaw the track in order to free up the brake sensors. By the time that the attraction was ready for them to ride, it was 11 a.m.

Word coming out of the test is that the new attraction is absolutely amazing, the Yeti Animatronic is mind-boggling and the queue may be the best-themed Disney queue yet. We'll have photos and more information in three weeks, following the sneak preview for Disney Vacation Club members and Annual Passholders. If you'll be there for the event, join us for lunch on Saturday at 1:00 at Flame Tree Barbecue (link).

Bastos repeats as marathon winner; Michiganders sweep half marathon

While Brazilian Adriano Bastos finished 28 seconds behind his winning time of last year, he still managed to win Sunday's Walt Disney World Marathon by more than 11 minutes over his nearest competitor. After leaping through the finish-line tape in 2:19:44, Bastos also became the first three-time winner of the event.

On the women's side, last year's winner, Amy Schertzer, finished three minutes behind her winning time of last year, and almost eight minutes behind winner Paige Higgins. Higgins won in her first marathon race ever, in a time of 2:51:38.

Men's and women's champions in the Master's Division for those aged 40 and over were Michael Mollod (41) and Lynn Leonard (40). Mollod finished tenth overall.

In Saturday's Walt Disney World Half Marathon, Michiganders dominated the event, as members of the Hanson's Brooks Distance Project running club in Rochester, Michigan, not only won both the men's and women's events but also took second in both divisions and third on the men's side.

On the men's side, Josh Eberly edged out teammate Josh Moen to win the race in 1:08:12, with Jeff Gaudette 10 seconds back. Melissa White won the women's division in 1:18:34, ahead of teammate Dorothy McMahan. Master's Division winners were Bob Winn and Mandi Kowal. Winn finished fifth overall.

Registration opens today for next year's events (link), which will again be held on separate days. The Half Marathon is scheduled for Saturday, January 6, 2007, while the Marathon will be held the next day.

Half marathoner dies after collapsing at finish line

Not all of the news from Marathon Weekend was happy, however. A former professional golfer collapsed at the finish line and was pronounced dead at a hospital after finishing the Half Marathon on Saturday.

Willie Kane, a club pro from Arizona, collapsed just after crossing the finish line in 2:27:36 and was immediately attended to by paramedics stationed nearby. They began cardiopulmonary resuscitation on Kane, who was rushed to Florida Hospital Celebration Health. He was pronounced dead at the hospital. An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.

Kane, who played golf professionally until 1992, took up running about four years ago in order to help him remain healthy.

It is believed to be the first Half Marathon death at Walt Disney World. In 2000, a 56-year-old died after having a heart attack and collapsing just over a mile into the Walt Disney World Marathon.

Disney Dining Experience price increase

A new price increase has gone into effect for the Disney Dining Experience program, which gives diners a 20 percent discount at most dining locations in Walt Disney World and is available for Florida residents and Annual Passholders only. The base price for Florida residents has gone up from $75 to $85, with renewal prices increasing from $60 to $70. The Passholder discount price has increased from $50 to $60, effective for new and renewal cards. But that's not all. A second card for a spouse or other family member, which used to be free, will now cost $25, the same as for a lost card replacement.

February special events at Pleasure Island

Pleasure Island will host two special party events in February. On February 10, 11 and 14, the Island will host Sweetheart Island, with Cupid roaming the streets, "Love Prophets" foretelling guests' romantic futures in the West End Plaza and loads of heart-shaped balloons and feather banners.

And once again, the Island will celebrate Fat Tuesday with the Parti Gras party on February 24, 25 and 28. Special entertainment will include the "Krewe of Confusion" and the "World's Dinkiest Mardi Gras Parade." Jester heads and giant beads will be the decor du jour.

Because of the special events, demolition of the West End Stage has been put on hold, so that The Leonard Brothers can perform during the Sweetheart Island celebration and Doo Wah Riders can do the same for Parti Gras.

New fire station construction

Disney's growing infrastructure has necessitated the construction of two new fire stations for Reedy Creek Emergency Services, which protects the resort property. Station 3 is being built near the Grand Floridian, while Station 5 is under construction in the south service area of the property. The new Station 3 replaces an old station in that area, and will support the Magic Kingdom, the resorts in that area and the support facilities backstage in that area. Station 5 will cover the new Western Beltway that was constructed through Disney property, as well as the south service area and any other structures to be built in the area.

Reminder: Those interested in the Reedy Creek fire stations can tour Station 1 (the brick-and-Dalmatian patterned buildings on Buena Vista Drive) between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. No appointment is necessary, unless your group is very large. Also, at Station 4 (the new station near the Saratoga Springs Resort with an entrance shaped like a firefighter's helmet and a fire hose fountain out front), "Protecting the Magic" T-shirts are available for purchase.

Two more gates go empty at Orlando airport

Thursday's shutdown of Independence Air will leave their two gates empty at Orlando International Airport. If Delta is successful in its legal action to abandon 16 gates, that will create a total of 18 gates looking for airlines to fill them.

Passholder suites for Braves game back

Following last year's sellout, Disney will again have a special Passholder suite day for the Atlanta Braves' spring training game against the New York Mets at 1:05 p.m. on March 11 at Crackerjack Stadium. For $57 (adults) and $45 (children ages 3-9), Passholders get admission to the game, a collectible progran and an all-you-can-eat buffet, not to mention run of a climate-controlled suite. The extremely limited tickets go on sale on February 1 at 407-938-3223.

Gooding's declares bankruptcy, remains open

Citing massive debt loads created by the construction, opening and closing of a location in the town of Celebration, Gooding's Supermarkets, Inc. filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on December 30. A lawsuit against its Celebration landlord, Unicorp National Developments, Inc., is still pending.

The chain's catering business and two remaining locations, at Crossroads Plaza and on International Drive, will remain open during the bankruptcy proceedings.

Ears to the ground

…We've got an additional note about the Royal Anandapur Tea Company. The new food location near Expedition: Everest actually features loose-leaf tea, brewed fresh in the cup using tea drops (kind of like a loose filter that hangs over the edge of the cup and can be lifted out when the tea is dark enough). This provides a much fuller taste to the teas.

…We're hearing that some people who were expecting their tickets for the tapings of "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" at the Disney-MGM Studios this coming weekend have not yet received their tickets and were given no way to follow up to find out where their tickets are. While we have no answers for them, we would suggest showing up and hoping that their names are on a list of ticket reservations. Also, we have heard that there may be a limited number of tickets available on a same-day basis. If you are one of those who did not receive expected tickets and you attempt to get into the tapings, please let us know how it goes.

…The 24-hour pool at the Grand Floridian (including the children's pool and hot tub) closed for refurbishment on Tuesday, and will be down for an undetermined length of time. The themed pool and slide will remain open during the closure, but will continue to operate at its normal hours, leaving those who wish to swim in the middle of the night out of luck.

…Catching up on news from a couple of weeks ago (link), the baby elephant born on December 19 has been given the name Nadirah, which is Swahili for rare, precious or gift.
