Walt Disney World Resort Update for March 14-20, 2017by Alan S. Dalinka, staff writer
Walt Disney World Resort Update for March 14–20, 2017
Writer's note: The "This and That" section this week has quite a few news items, including a few more passholder discounts we have spotted (in addition to those mentioned in other sections). I only had a chance to visit Walt Disney World once since last week's Update was published, but it was a great (and long) day that began as the sun rose over Seven Seas Lagoon as I approached Magic Kingdom, and it extended well into the night with a visit to Trader Sam's at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. But before we get into this week's news and views and a new edition of One Passholder's Tip that was reinforced (at least in my mind) by my very early Sunday morning visit to Magic Kingdom, have a look at another "streetmosphere" group of entertainment cast members that make visiting Walt Disney World just that much more magical than your average park.
Miss Adventure Falls Now Open At Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park | Closer Elephant Encounters Now Available at Disney's Animal Kingdom | Pandora Promotional Efforts Picking Up Steam | Views around the World | One Passholder's Tip | This and That | Crowd Forecast
Miss Adventure Falls, the new family raft attraction, is now open at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park. Riders board 4-person rafts to ride, though, as Orlando Sentinel's Dewayne Bevil reports, that does not seem to mean four (or even three) adults can ride comfortably together. The attraction officially opened on Sunday with the completion of Typhoon Lagoon's seasonal refurbishment.
The new attraction's story line is tied to many other attractions in Disney Parks and Resorts around the world—like the World Famous Jungle Cruise, Skipper Canteen, the late lamented Adventurers Club, and an increasing number of others—through the (imagineered) Society of Explorers and Adventurers (S.E.A). We included quite a bit of additional information about S.E.A. in my article following last fall's Disney D23 Destination D event.
Located near the "pineapple fields" of Crush 'n' Gusher, as the story goes, the new family-raft attraction is owned by Captain Mary Oceaneer, a member of S.E.A., who is a world-famous oceanographer. As a "sea-faring treasure hunter," Captain Mary "made it her goal to sail the seven seas and collect treasures to share with the rest of the world."
Typhoon Lagoon is where Captain Mary's ship ended up after a "rogue typhoon swept it and some of her artifacts to shore, where the locals then repurposed the goods and statues to create this family raft adventure." An "aquatic conveyor belt" carries the rafts into the water slides, carrying riders past some of Captain Mary's artifacts and Duncan, her "old diving partner—a talking parrot who's still hunting for treasures."

Numerous Disney water park ticket purchasing options are available on DisneyWorld.com, including one day adult admission for $62 plus tax. As Disney Parks Blog notes, admission to Typhoon Lagoon includes water park hopping admission to Disney's Blizzard Beach when both water parks are open. Through October 1, passholders can get a 1-day water parks ticket for only $45 plus tax per person for themselves and for up to three additional guests at any Guest Relations or vacation planning booth.
Note: as of very early Tuesday morning, Orlando Sentinel reports that the forecast of colder weather in Central Florida on Wednesday and Thursday will keep both Disney water parks closed on those days.
On Sunday, Disney's Animal Kingdom debuted a new behind the scenes experience named "Caring for Giants," which gives guests an up-close look at the park's African elephants and what it takes to care for them. The 60-minute, $30/person experience is led by dedicated animal specialists who provide for the care and wellness of the herd. African cultural representatives also discuss Disney's relevant conservation efforts in their homelands.
Guests on this experience get approximately 80 to 100 feet away from the elephants, closer than other existing in-park experiences. Like other experiences, during portions that take place backstage, cameras and cell phones may not be used. Photography is allowed and "encouraged" in other areas. On other tours, guides typically make it clear when photos are and are not allowed, and we expect that is true with this experience too.
Groups are scheduled at several times every day between 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Reservations are available by calling (407) WDW-PLAY or (407) 939-7529. Guests check in 15 minutes prior to the start of the experience at the Animal Experiences booth across from the entrance to Kilimanjaro Safaris. Late arrivals may not be allowed to join the experience.
Be aware, of course, as an outdoor experience, weather may be a factor (published information does not specify whether the experience will be cancelled for rain; if lightning is in the vicinity, we expect that delays or cancelation of specific groups may occur). Comfortable shoes and appropriate attire are strongly recommended. Guests must be at least 4 years old to participate and those under 18 years old must be accompanied by a participating adult who is 18 or older. Guests must walk by themselves, or be assisted by a member(s) of their party in a courtesy wheelchair to participate.
Note: the experience visits outdoor areas containing common allergens such as dust and hay, as well as biting/stinging insects. Additional accessibility accommodation information and applicable service animal policies are available by calling the park's Guest Animal Experience team at (407) 938-1487.
As the May 27 official opening of Disney's Animal Kingdom's new land, Pandora–The World of Avatar, approaches, Disney's promotional efforts are moving into high gear. Florida television increasingly shows different commercials for the new land. This week, Disney-owned ABC-TV programs got on board too with ABC-TV's The View's week of episodes from the park.
Specifically with regard to Pandora, The View sent Whoopi Goldberg into the new land with its co-creator James Cameron in a segment that aired on Thursday's show and which can be seen in its entirety here (though, until March 16, login with a participating television provider is required; the site indicates that login will not be required after that date but it does not say how long past episodes will be available). The View also posted a video clip on Twitter later in the day which is embedded below.
Promotion of Pandora also is underway on ABC's Good Morning America. In part promoting Thursday's episode of The View, GMA tweeted its own clip about Pandora.
As of at least this Monday, the new (so-called E-Ticket Attraction) Avatar Flight of Passage now appears in the My Disney Experience App under the "Attractions" heading. Of course, it is listed as "Temporarily Closed." Whether its inclusion means unannounced, unscheduled "soft openings" are rapidly approaching or that Fastpass+ reservations may soon be available (subject to the usual rules or otherwise) one can only hope.
As I wrote in the "Writer's note" atop this week's Update, I was away from Walt Disney World for most of this past week. However, on Sunday, a non-local friend who wanted to to get to Magic Kingdom in time for its rope drop opening was in town with one free day, so I finally got to see the new "Let the Magic Begin" welcome show in front of Cinderella Castle that debuted back in January. Also, perhaps as a result of reading fellow MousePlanet writer Roan Poulter's article, I again dined at Skipper Canteen (which, by the way, did provide a 20% passholder discount at lunch) and I even took it a step further by revisiting Trader Sam's Grog Grotto at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. Enjoy this week's Views Around the World with a bit more news sprinkled within.

Like the one tested last year in the exit area of Space Mountain that is now closed, this Guest Services location provides the same services as City Hall including ticket upgrades, express transportation add-ons, and answering other guest inquiries. Photo by Alan S. Dalinka.
As we reported last week, the new Joffrey's Revive kiosk opened in Tomorrowland near Space Mountain. It seemed to have a longer queue on Sunday than I have typically seen at Joffrey's Epcot and TTC locations. Photo by Alan S. Dalinka.
Disney's Polynesian Village Resort
With the S.E.A. theming for the new attraction at Typhoon Lagoon, and my visits to Skipper Canteen, Jungle Cruise and even the Tiki Room all in one day, a visit to Trader Sam's seemed appropriate. Photo by Alan S. Dalinka.
For those that are not familiar with this tiny bar located on the lower level of the Grand Ceremonial House at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, it ties in to the S.E.A. story and is filled with related artifacts: it is "owned" by Jungle Cruise's Trader Sam, the "Head Salesman." Artifacts and scenery are brought further to life by a highly entertaining bunch of Cast Member servers and bartenders depending on what drinks guests order. Photo by Alan S. Dalinka.
This section of the Update provides our MousePlanet readers with the benefit of my years of experience as a longtime Walt Disney World annual passholder, and lots of personal trial and errors, one (hopefully weekly) tip at a time.
One Passholder's Tip: Week 8
Arrive before park gates open rather than when the park opens to avoid the biggest lines at security.
As I mentioned in the Views Around the World, I made a very early visit to Magic Kingdom on Sunday. Indeed, I believe it is the earliest I have entered the gates of a Florida Disney park as an adult (media-invited events excluded)! And its earliness was made all the earlier by the fact that just a few hours before my arrival, we moved our clocks ahead an hour for the start of Daylight Saving Time.
Having said all that, I have been at Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney Studios (Paris) when their respective gates opened in the morning. I have also seen "rope drop" (that moment when Cast Members allow guests to enter the lands where the attractions are located) at Epcot.
The one thing I have observed on all of these mentioned early occasions is that arriving before the gates and turnstiles (or the more recent Florida TouchPoints) open results in much smaller crowds and waits to get in to the park. Sure, once you get in to the park, you then need to wait until you can actually visit an attraction, but, of course, the crowd is spread out and you may actually find you have some room to breathe.
Particularly during that hour after the official park opening and rope-drop, the security lines and park gates can be quite crowded, as they were this past Sunday. My friend and I had the luxury of being the only two guests aboard the Walt Disney World Railroad as it pulled in to Main Street Station from Fantasyland at about 9:30 a.m. The crowd on the Seven Seas Lagoon side of the berm was much, much larger. Of course, as I like to say, your mileage may vary.
Don't keep it to yourself!
…Following up on a recent Update, the new Tangled-themed luminous lantern Disney PhotoPass photo opportunity near Rapunzel Tower in Fantasyland (also known as the Tangled bathrooms) has been extended indefinitely (weather permitting). It was previously scheduled to conclude March 15.
…St. Patrick's Day is coming up this Friday, March 17, and in addition to the Raglan Road at Disney Springs Might St. Patrick's Day Festival we previously told you about (March 16-19), around Walt Disney World Resort there are a number of other ways to celebrate.
- Casey's Corner at Magic Kingdom debuted a new gourmet hot dog that is topped with traditionally celebratory corned beef, Swiss cheese, and sauerkraut (along with whole grain mustard) this past Sunday. (We do not know whether this item will continue beyond St. Patrick's Day.)
- On St. Patrick's Day, Fountain View at Epcot and Main Street Bakery at Magic Kingdom (both are Starbuck's locations) will sell a cupcake topped with a leprechaun hat made of chocolate sandwich cookie and a marshmallow with three "gold nuggets" (from the mythological "pot of gold at the end of the rainbow" of course).
- Disney's Contemporary Resort will offer its own Leprechaun's Pot of Gold Cupcake in Contempo Café.
- Epcot's Rose & Crown Pub at the United Kingdom pavilion will have green beer available, and its restaurant also serves corned beef and cabbage.
…Even more details of the (so-far one night only) Star Wars: Galactic Nights Event scheduled for April 14 at Disney's Hollywood Studios have been announced on Disney Parks Blog. With the announced addition of Vanessa Marshall, the voice of Hera Syndulla from Star Wars Rebels as host of the "Inside the Saga: Celebrity Chat Show" the event is increasingly resembling a separately ticketed, miniature version of the "Star Wars Weekends" that the park held for the final time in 2015. Tickets (which appear to still be available) are $129/person plus tax on WaltDisneyWorld.com. Passholders can take advantage of a $10 per ticket discount on the event.
…At Epcot's United Kingdom pavilion, Rose & Crown Dining room has added "Sunday Roast" to the menu but, as its name suggests, only on Sundays. Sunday Roast is a traditional British meal, typically consisting of roasted meat, potatoes, vegetables and Yorkshire pudding. At Rose & Crown, the dish will alternate weekly among roasted pork, turkey, or lamb with mint sauce. Customary sides such as roasted potatoes, peas and carrots, sage and onion stuffing, Yorkshire pudding, and gravy accompany the roast.
…Brunch With a Twist returns to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa on May 6. Again hosted by Cítricos, the five-course brunch features the award-winning chefs at Disney's Grand Floridian: Executive Chef Scott Hunnel, Chef Dominique Filoni, Chef Noah Estabrook, Chef Nick Mussara, Chef Lawrence Searl and Executive Pastry Chef Erich Herbitschek. The menu represents Victoria & Albert's, Cítricos, Narcoossee's, Grand Floridian Cafe and the Grand Floridian Bakery. Cost is $169 plus tax (gratuity and valet parking included). For reservations, call 407-939-3463.
…Passholders can save 40% on the Wonderland Tea Party through June 30, 2017, at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. The crafts, games, storytelling, and cupcakes party for kids ages 4-12, is held Mondays through Fridays from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at 1900 Park Fare at Grand Floridian. The non-discounted price is $49 plus tax. Call (407) WDW-Dine or (407) 939-3463 for reservations. Children must be potty-trained and a parent or guardian must sign a waiver/consent for the child to participate.
…Speaking of ABC-TV's The View (as in the Pandora promotions), your friendly (and then sunburned even though you would think he would have known better) Update Writer had a few brief orange t-shirted appearance on the show that was broadcast on Friday, including behind some of the food being prepared by Chef Morimoto. No breaking Disney Parks news was revealed during the episode, but it can be viewed in its entirety here (subject to the same login discussed above). You can see a wrap of of The View's week at Disney's Animal Kingdom, including a "behind the scenes video," on Disney Parks Blog.
…And finally, Walt Disney World Resort's annual "March Magic" bracketed battle for the "Ultimate Disney Attraction" begins today on its Facebook page. Merchandise featuring the graphic logos of the competing attractions will also be available on DisneyStore.com. Full details and all the appropriate links can be found at Disney Parks Blog.
…The MousePlanet Newsletter is here! The newsletter contains a recap of the week's articles (in case you miss a day), news that may have developed since the weekly Updates were published, and tips about what's happening at the Disney theme parks for the coming weekend. We'll also include a fun bonus, such as an Eye Spy or a trivia question. To subscribe to our free newsletter, just enter your e-mail in the box below.
