News and Views

All Star renovations hit snag, now targeted for next year

Due to construction delays, the renovation of rooms at the All Star Resorts is being pushed back. The standard rooms at buildings 3-8 at the All Star Music Resort has been postponed until after January 1. (Rooms in buildings 1, 2, 9 and 10 that have not been converted into suites are already done or being completed.) Rooms will be getting new furniture, drapes, coat racks, beds, and a privacy curtain on the vanity area. The rooms will have a more retro look.

The All Star Sports Resort will get its own round of renovations, but not until Music is completed, which is estimated for June 2007. Those renovations are expected to run until November 2007.

2007 dates announced for Flower & Garden Festival

Dates have been announced for the 2007 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. The festival, which will run for a record 60 days (up from 52 last year), will begin on April 5 and run through June 3. It appears that all of the popular events from last year will likely return.

For more information about the festival, see MousePlanet's park guide page to the event or go to the official page on the Disney Web site.

Laugh Floor Comedy Club has target date and more details

Disney is now saying that the Monsters, Inc. The Laugh Floor Comedy Club attraction will open in mid-to-late January in the former home of Timekeeper in the Magic Kingdom's Tomorrowland, which has had 385 seats installed into the former Circlevision theater. Disney calls the show "an immersive and interactive attraction in which guests can laugh, joke, match wits and laugh some more with comedian wannabes recruited by Mike Wazowski, the one-eyed hero from the Disney-Pixar animated film Monsters, Inc. Mike has opened the comedy club to collect laughs that will generate power for the monster world of Monstropolis."

Disney Wonder to get makeover while in drydock next month

The Disney Wonder is in line for loads of upgrades while it's in dry dock for the first couple of weeks in October. Most visibly, a jumbo LED screen will be mounted on the aft side of the foreward funnel on deck 9, overlooking the Goofy Pool. The 336-square-foot screen will provide the same type of entertainment as has been available on the Disney Magic since it received a similar screen last year.

An extension to the Mickey Pool on deck 9 is targeted at the smallest cruisers. The new 385-square-foot extension, shaped similarly to Mickey's sorcerer hat, is a water play area with interactive fountains and splash zones specifically for toddlers who are not yet toilet trained and in swim diapers.

For the older kids, the Oceaneer Lab and Oceaneer Club will also get upgrades, with a new computer simulator in the Lab and additional computer games and stations in the Club.

Adults aren't being left out, either. There will be three new spa villas at the Vista Spa and Salon, with indoor spa treatment suites connected to private outdoor verandahs with personal hot tubs, open-air showers and chaise lounges. The fitness center at the spa will double in size, adding an additional 1,700 square feet. The entire Vista Spa complex will expand to a total of 10,700 square feet. The Quiet Cove adult pool see the addition of waterfalls cascading from the two hot tubs and new tack chairs.

And for those who have to do business while aboard, the Peter Pan, Fantasia and Steamboat Willie conference rooms on deck 2 are getting major upgrades. Wi-Fi Internet stations are also being added to the Cove Cafe on deck 9.

The Wonder is expected to return to service in time for its scheduled October 15 cruise.

Magic Kingdom entertainment enhancements begin

It appears that the new entertainment events that we told you would be coming to the Magic Kingdom will all debut this week. Starting today, the Main Street Family Fun Day Parade kicks off down Main Street while the new Let's Have A Ball: The Happily Ever After Party (formerly called the Royal Court Academy) begins in Fantasyland. Starting Wednesday, Woody's Cowboy Camp takes place in Fantasyland while the High School Musical Pep Rally kicks off in Tomorrowland. Finally, the new castle forecourt stage show (called "Dream Along with Mickey") will debut on Saturday.

Orlando International Airport slates upgrades for airside terminals

There's some good news for those who fly to Walt Disney World on United, US Air, Northwest and other airlines that use Airside 3. The terminal, which opened in 1981, is slated for some upgrades over the next two and a half years that will see the addition of a mini food court, skylights and mechanical and electrical upgrades. The work is scheduled to start next month.

Airside 1—home of Continental, American and other airlines—will undergo similar renovations at a later date. Airsides 2 and 4 are newer, and are not currently slated for further upgrades.

Magical Express, Lynx to swap locations

We noted a couple of weeks ago that Disney's Magical Express is moving its location at Orlando International Airport from the "A" side of the terminal to the "B" side, effective October 3. Apparently, the other half of the equation is that Orlando's Lynx public transportation system buses will be moving from the "B" side to the "A" side on the same date. The switches will allow both services to get to and from their stops without having to circle around the airport to get where they're going. An interesting note is that Magical Express is currently advertised on the main page of Orlando International Airport's Web site.

Quick takes …

…ESPN The Weekend will return to the Disney-MGM Studios from March 2-4 of next year. It appears that events will likely be the same as—or similar to—last year.

Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex will celebrate its tenth anniversary when the Atlanta Braves return for their tenth full season of spring training next February.

…The Walt Disney World Swan Hotel has closed Palio, their upscale Italian restaurant. Plans are in the works to replace the restaurant, but there are no details yet. In the meantime, those looking for Italian food in the area can head to L'Originale Alfredo di Roma Ristorante in Epcot's Italy pavilion or Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano at Disney-MGM Studios' Streets of America Backlot.

…We've received a report that a new "pictorial souvenir" book has been spotted in the gift shops. The approximately 200-page hardcover book doesn't include the updates to Pirates of the Caribbean, but has some nice new layouts for other attractions and resorts. List price is $21.95.

Trivia question of the week

This week's question: In what order did the three All Star Resorts originally open? Stay tuned to next week's park update for the answer.

The answer to last week's question: "How many tons of candy has Disney brought in for all the of Halloween parties?" is:

Disney is storing 150 tons of candy for the parties in trailers in the backstage area of Main Street.

Current Discounts & Promotions

Room discounts available for passholders, Florida residents and general public through end of September

Disney has announced new room rate discounts for travel through September 30. New, lower room rates are available to the general public beginning August 19 as room-only reservations or as a Magic Your Way package with or without dining.

Passholders and Florida residents get even lower rates, with value resorts starting at just $59 per night. These rates start August 27.

To make reservations at the general public rates, use promotional code BPN or BPO for room-only reservations, YYC for Magic Your Way packages and YYD for Magic Your Way Plus Dining. Passholders should use promotional code FAU or FAV, while Florida residents should reference code FAR.

Passholder, Florida resident room rates, general public package deals announced for October through December

Annual passholder rates have been announced for October 1 through December 23. Of course, there will be no AP rates during peak Christmas Week dates of December 24-31. The rates very by season (the period covered spans regular, value and holiday seasons), but they'll give you approximately $20 off per night at Value resorts, $40 off per night at Moderates, and $71-$80 per night at Deluxe resorts. The booking code for these rates is FBZ. (The passholder Web site says FCB, so I would guess that both would work.)

Florida Residents have their own discounts, using booking code FBY. Availability dates are October 5 through December 23, and rates are $5 more than the AP rates.

Both of these rates can be booked up until December 23.

The general public has not been left out, either. Disney has announced a special discount for packages purchased through September 30. For vacations between October 1 and December 23 (with the possible exception of November 19-23 and December 2-8), a great low rate, with the example rate given as $355 per adult for five nights at a value resort, based on double occupancy, with lower per-person rates for juniors and children staying in the same room. The Disney Dining Plan can also be added to these packages.

To book online at the Disney Web site, click "Special Offers" on the left side of the Tickets and Reservations part of the site to see the offer.

To book via phone or through a travel agency, use code ZBG for Magic Your Way packages and ZBH for Magic Your Way Plus Dining.

Disney Rewards Visa cardholders got access to the same discount three days earlier, and can also book through September 30. It's unknown whether they get anything more than the general public, but the cardholders can book with code ZBC for Magic Your Way packages and ZBD for Magic Your Way Plus Dining.

Special offer for Super Soap Weekend travel from Small World Vacations

Small World Vacations, a MousePlanet sponsor, has announced a special offer for those traveling during this year's Super Soap Weekend event. The travel agency will give one free One Life, Many Voices CD with each qualifying Disney Magic Your Way Vacation package that falls during 2006 Super Soap Weekend (November 11 and 12) booked with Small World Vacations (link).

The One Life, Many Voices CD is an independent fundraising effort with 100 percent of net proceeds going directly to aid 2005 Hurricane Disaster Relief, created by the stars of the ABC soap One Life to Live.

The free CD will be mailed with final travel documents. If the guest cancels their Super Soap vacation reservation, the offer is null and void. Small World Vacations' minimum night stay policy applies. Small World Vacations has donated to the One Life, Many Voices Hurricane Relief Fund on behalf of their guests.

New Radisson discount offer

The Radisson Resort Orlando - Celebration, a MousePlanet sponsor, has announced reduced rates for MousePlanet readers that book their trip by September 30 for trips through the end of the year. Rates start at $59.95 per night through October 5 and $79.95 from October 6 through December 21!

Cirque discounts for Passholders and DVC members

Passholders and DVC members get 25 percent off Category 2 admission to performances of Cirque du Soleil's La Nouba through September 30, 2006. Each passholder or DVC member can buy up to four tickets. Tickets should be purchased by phone at 407-939-7604 up to 30 days in advance, and must be picked up at the box office with valid Passholder or DVC identification. The show will not be performed on Sundays and Mondays, as well as September 17?25.

Golf Price Slice returns

A round of golf at Walt Disney World will be less expensive after 10 a.m. again this summer as the resort is bringing back the Disney's Price Slice promotion. From May 22 through September 30, greens fees will be "sliced" to $55 for the Magnolia and Eagle Pines courses, $49 for the Palm course and $45 for the Lake Buena Vista course. The rates include the use of an electric cart and are discounted from the before-10 a.m. prices of $89 (Magnolia and Eagle Pines), $79 (Palm) and $69 (Lake Buena Vista). The Osprey Ridge course is not involved in the promotion, as it will be closed from May 15 through September 23 for refurbishment. The Tifdwarf grass on the greens is being replaced by TifEagle turf, tee boxes are being laser leveled and other work will also be done. The annual makeover of a selected course has been extremely well-received, with the Palm course going first in 2004 and the Magnolia getting upgraded last year. It is unknown at this time whether the Eagle Pines or Lake Buena Vista course is scheduled for next year. To reserve a tee time, call 407-WDW-GOLF (407-939-4653) or go to the Disney Golf Web site (link). Note that the site appears to have difficulty with browsers other than Internet Explorer.
