News and Views

T-Rex Cafe to be just one phase of Pleasure Island conversion

At publication time last week, it was uncertain exactly where the new 600-seat T-Rex Cafe would be built in Downtown Disney. We now know that the two-story, 25,000-square-foot building will be built between The Marketplace and Pleasure Island. Most likely, it will be built in the park-like area between McDonald's and the bridge near Fulton's, with the bridge being widened. This will effectively connect The Marketplace to Pleasure Island, helping Disney's attempt to make all of Downtown Disney one cohesive whole.

To assist in that plan, Disney is making a number of other changes. With the traffic flow on the East side improved by the new T-Rex Cafe, Disney also came up with a plan to improve flow on the West Side. Now that traffic can freely flow through Pleasure Island, with admission fees only needed for the clubs, there is no longer any need to constrict access points. So the West End stage will be dismantled in the near future, allowing Disney to build a much wider bridge/accessway from the information/ticket booth area to the former location of the West End Stage. There's also the possibility that the change in traffic flow could lead to an additional building being added next to the Comedy Warehouse structure, near (or replacing) the current stairway to the existing trestle bridge.

Superstar Studios closed March 3. DTV, Zen Zone and Missing Link Sausage Company close this coming Sunday, and Changing Attitudes and Reel Finds follow in April 1. None of those locations will return. The Harley-Davidson store will also close this coming Sunday, and it will reopen in the location currently housing Changing Attitudes and Reel finds this summer. On April 1, Kodak Imaging Services will close its current location in order to move to the currently unoccupied Ticket Trolley at the entrance to Pleasure Island near Mannequins.

The Hub Stage will also be demolished in the near future and an open plaza will be created with access to a boat dock. The plaza will provide lake views for visitors. It's likely that the locations being vacated adjacent to the Hub Stage will also be demolished to become part of the plaza.

Family Suites update

A couple of weeks ago (link), we noted that Disney had announced the new Family Suites at the All-Star Music Resort. We've gotten a little more information from our friends at MousePlanet sponsor Small World Vacations that only 52 suites in the Jazz building have been completed to date, but that the previously-announced total of 192 suites will be located in Jazz and Calypso upon completion.

The suites sleep up to six people, plus one child under the age of 3 in a Pak-n-Play crib. The complete list of sleeping accommodations is a queen bed, full-size pullout sofa, convertible ottoman and chair sleepers (4 separate sleepers). Both rooms have 27-inch flat-screen CRT televisions and wireless high-speed Internet access. Best of all, of course, is that there are two full bathrooms.

Animal Kingdom Lodge now certifiably "green"

On March 6, the Animal Kingdom Lodge became the sixth Walt Disney World resort hotel to be designated as a certified Green Lodge by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (link). The hotel was specifically cited for the use of automatic faucets in guest areas, using programmable thermostats and a variety of recycling initiatives.

The Boardwalk and Coronado Springs Resorts were two of the first group of four awards to be given, back on March 10, 2004. On August 3, 2005, they were joined as Green Lodges by the Caribbean Beach, Port Orleans and Pop Century Resorts. With the addition of the Animal Kingdom Lodge, Disney now has six of the thirteen resorts designated as Green to date.

Minnie Marathon Weekend registration open

Registration for the Minnie Marathon Weekend is now open. The three events (15K and 5K races and a 1-mile fun run/walk) will take place the weekend of May 5-7 and will include a health and fitness expo aimed at women. A new finisher's medal in the shape of Minnie Mouse's head will be awarded. So if you've got the Donald from the half-marathon, the Mickey from the marathon and the Goofy from running them both, you've got a new medal to complete the set. (Will they do a race for pets, so that they can give a Pluto medal to round out the Fab Five?)

Early registration fees for the events are $35 for the 15K (register), $25 for the 5K (register) and $20 for the one mile (register). The fees each increase by $5 after April 15. You can register online (link) or you can call 407-938-3398 to have a registration form mailed to you.

The health and fitness expo will begin May 5. The one-mile and 5K will take place on May 6 and the Women Run the World 15K will be run on May 7.

While the weekend, which will benefit the American Heart Association, is designed for women, men are welcome to participate on behalf of the women in their lives.

Beyond Breakfast and Beyond

It's looking like the Breakfast and Beyond character dining experience at Hollywood & Vine at the Disney-MGM Studios will be delayed a little longer. We're now hearing rumors that the meal will not begin service until the beginning of June. Another rumor that we're starting to hear is that the character meal will take place at both breakfast and lunch, possibly endangering the working name of the meal.

Reportedly, characters at the meal will include a virtual "Who's Who" of Pixar characters, including Buzz Lightyear, Sarge (of Green Army Men fame) and Mr. Incredible. Of course, none of this is final until they actually start holding the event.

Quick takes …

…We are hearing that it is a certainty that there will be a new night-time spectacular debuting at Epcot in October 2007 for the park's 25th birthday. No further details are available at this time.

…The Boardwalk Inn will be receiving an extensive refurbishment along the lines of the one currently underway at the Polynesian and Contemporary Resorts, including the installation of flat-panel televisions. This work will begin shortly after work begins on the Wilderness Lodge.

…The on-ride photo system at Expedition Everest is now up and running.

…Disney sees ESPN The Weekend as a fledgling Super-Soap opportunity, and they want to "maximize the Guest experience." To that end, they're considering the addition of different interactive events and additional merchandising.

…Passholders will be able to get 10 percent off the price of Adventures By Disney vacations when they book and submit a deposit by May 31.
