Pirates and Princesses to return in August

The decision was made so recently that no dates have yet been determined, but Disney's Pirate & Princess Party will return on "selected dates in August." Disney is hoping that they'll get a better turnout this time, because they were very disappointed in the number of tickets sold during the first 13 parties held in January through March.

For more information on the event, take a look at our park guide page on the party, or listen to Episode #5 of our MouseStation podcast to listen to interviews of some of the people behind the party and a summary of the event.

Little Ones Travel Time to return this fall

Walt Disney World will again promote Little Ones Travel Time this fall, as toddler-themed entertainment and special Fantasyland-only Extra Magic Hours return from August 26 through October 28. Live concerts already scheduled (subject to change, as always) include The Doodlebops, Johnny and the Sprites and Dan Zanes.

New discounts announced for everyone, plus passholder and Florida resident rates

Disney has announced new discount codes for room-only and package stays for mid-April through late May. It appears that the discounts are approximately 15 percent off of value and moderate resorts and 25 percent off of deluxes. (Values start at $84 per night.) The rates are valid April 15-19, April 22-26 and April 29-May 23. Use rate code BUC, for room-only reservations. For Magic Your Way packages, use ZHD, and use ZHE to add dining to your package. You'll have to book these rates by April 14.

Annual passholders and Florida residents have longer to book their discounted rates, as their rates are available through the end of the promotional period, subject to availability. Passholder and resident discount dates are for most nights from April 15-19 and April 22-May 24. Passholder rates start at $10 less per night than the regular discounts (as low as $74 per night for value resorts), while Florida resident rates are $5 less than the regular discounts (as low as $79 per night for values). Full hook-up campsites for RVs start at $55 per night for passholders, $60 per night for Florida residents.

Disney, other theme park operators named in patent suit

In the "frivolous misuse of the U.S. Patent system" news, the Orlando Sentinel is reporting that Safety Braking Corp. of Newport Beach, California, is suing Disney, Universal, Six Flags, Busch and Cedar Fair for infringing on patents on magnetic brakes used on roller coasters. The company claims that the theme park operators infringed on patents that they exclusively licensed from Magnetar Technologies Corp. and G&T Conveyor Co. Safety Braking, Magnetar and G&T Conveyor are seeking a jury trial, an order to stop infringing the patents and royalties on its usage.

Now, why the three companies are going after the theme park operators rather than the companies that made the coasters is highly questionable, even if the coasters in question do use the patented part. It's like suing everybody that buys a mobile phone that uses an infringing part, rather than the manufacturer of the phones. Even if the parks specified that the parts should be used in the construction of their coasters, it was up to the manufacturers to license the patent and build that expense into the cost of the coaster.

The lawsuit was filed in federal court in Wilmington, Delaware on March 1. We'll see if anything actually comes of this.

Hotel tax numbers show Disney's strength

Despite the fact that Walt Disney World has less than 18 percent of all hotel rooms in the Orlando area, it was responsible for 33 percent of Orange County resort tax collections in 2006, and 22 percent of Osceola County's resort tax dollars. The numbers are likely a combination of higher occupancy rates and higher room prices. Throw in the Downtown Disney Resort Area hotels on Hotel Plaza Boulevard, and it's easy to see that Disney is really the big dog on the block. Come 2010, when the Four Seasons Hotel is built along Vista Boulevard and the value-priced hotels are up and running (and perhaps even the long-awaited Pop Century Phase II is completed), hotels on Disney property will have a tremendous share of the area's hotel dollars. That would likely give Disney an even greater amount of power in determining how the resort tax dollars are used. As it is, much of the money raised right now is going to promoting tourism in the area, which of course carries a tremendous benefit to Disney. We'll see what happens in a couple of years, when the target of the resort tax collections is scheduled to shift toward construction of a new arts center and arena for Orlando, as well as a major upgrade for the Citrus Bowl.

Mansion finally slated for refurbishment

The long-awaited refurbishment of the Haunted Mansion has finally hit the official Disney schedule. The popular attraction will receive some much-needed care while it is closed from June 6 through September 12. (It will return just in time for the first night of Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party.) During the three-month refurbishment, the unintentionally-creaky portions of the attraction's infrastructure will be fixed up, and (if rumors are to be trusted) the attraction will receive a copy of some of the recent enhancements created at Disneyland's version of the attraction, including the new bride and the floating Madame Leota crystal ball. Even if those enhancements to not materialize, it will still be nice to see the failing audio and other pieces receive some much-needed TLC.

Roof work around the world

Some major work is on tap for the flat roof portion of the Great Ceremonial House and monorail platform over at the Polynesian Resort. Officially-filed paperwork notes that the "[m]onorial [sic] station roof may have to be stripped down to rafter system and structural system constructed. This location will require extensive scaffolding and coordination with monorail operations." So if you're planning to stay at or just visit the Polynesian Resort in the near future (there is no exact date attached to the legal notice), be aware that this work may be going on.

Meanwhile, over in Epcot, while the Rose & Crown is closed for renovations, it's going to have some roof repairs done, and the China pavilion will also be undergoing repair and full fabric coating of its roof.

Quick takes …

…Annual passholder previews for the Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor Comedy Club will be held March 30 – April 1.

…We've finally got dates for the 12th annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. The popular event will take place from September 28 ? November 11.

…The refurbishment of the Mitsukoshi restaurants (Teppanyaki Dining Room, Tempura Kiku and Matsu No Ma Lounge) has been pushed back again, this time to April 15 through August 25.

…The "Meet the Robinsons" walk-around characters first seen at last week's annual meeting of shareholders are now in the parks to promote the film.

…The Maelstrom attraction in Epcot's Norway pavilion will be closed from April 30-May 24. It is rumored that the new film for the attraction will finally appear when this is completed, though there's no confirmation of that at this time.

…The Disney Wildlife Conservation Fund is one of three organizations that bought a large plot of Brazilian land in an attempt to protect the endangered Lear's macaw. The organizations teamed to purchase over 3,000 acres of habitat for the rare bird. Only 451 of the birds remain.

…An additional stroller parking area is being created behind the Nemo photo spot outside the Seas With Nemo and Friends pavilion.

…The storefront awnings along the Boardwalk are slated for replacement. That work should begin shortly, if it's not underway already.

A personal appeal, for the second year

I'm spending my birthday at the end of April participating in the March of Dimes WalkAmerica to prevent birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. Last year, through your generosity we raised $2,525 in just four weeks. This year, let's beat that. We're starting much earlier this year, so let's see if we can raise $4,000. I think we can. We're already over halfway there, with a month and a half to go! Please visit my fundraising page for more information.
