    Slinky Dog queue isn't wearing well

    Depending on where the bad welds are, they could either make new gates off site and install them after hours, or get a couple of crews in overnight to inspect, grind off the paint, re-weld and repaint before the hoards arrive.

    More Changes at Disney Springs

    We drove by DS on I-4 Sunday and saw how far along the next garage is. Those garages are a far cry from the old parking lots where you circled endlessly trying to find a spot. I'm glad that Disney has another hit on their hands, but because it's so crowded that's just another reason I will steer clear of the place. We went over there about a year ago, it was so mobbed we fought our way from the boat landing (which had a huge line of people trying to leave) over to the bus depot and left. I think we went in the Mis-Matched shop and that was it. It was almost as crowded at the premium Outlet Mall on Vineland!

    Tent camping in July with Family!

    Aww, c'mon, you're a Floridian, no problems tenting in July! We did it for a week 2 years ago for the 4th. No A/C, just fans (and a lot of pool time). Waiting to see the rest of the story!
  7. https://www.orlandoweekly.com/Blogs/archives/2018/07/17/disney-springs-has-tons-of-new-stuff-but-some-of-the-biggest-additions-are-yet-to-open Disney Springs has tons of new stuff, but some of the biggest additions are yet to open Disney Springs has seen dozens of new shops and restaurants open as part of the massive update to the former Downtown Disney complex. The crowds have discovered all the new offerings ranging from new retail shops, to new themed dining experiences, to a complete overhaul to the World of Disney store, but some of the biggest additions have yet to open. At least five major new additions are still in the works for the shopping district with various smaller ones, including a reimagining of the Basin store, currently in the works. The first of the five additions to open will be the Chicken Guy counter service restaurant on the ground floor of the Planet Hollywood Observatory. The location, tucked in beside the Planet Hollywood retail shop, was initially rumored to be a burger joint but is now focused on fried chicken, a signature item on the Planet Hollywood menu. Hiring is already underway for the new fried chicken fast-casual concept that will include made-to-order sandwiches, salads, wraps, and soups. Just across the pathway from Chicken Guy will be another new restaurant, though this one will be notably finer dining. The Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill will be the second Wolfgang Puck restaurant for Disney Springs after the, now closed and extremely dated, Wolfgang Puck Café in the West Side district. The new Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill has moved from the West Side to the newly created Town Center section and has shed the 1990’s cartoon-like aesthetic for a sleek, California inspired modern design similar to the Wolfgang Puck Bar & Brill in L.A. The former Wolfgang Puck Café location was leveled entirely and, in its place, another new restaurant is rising. This waterfront site will be the sixth location for Jaleo by Chef José Andrés and the first in the southern U.S. The multi-level tapas-focused restaurant will be the largest and, according to the restaurant's official website, the most spectacular Jaleo yet. Jaleo should open this fall in its brand new glass and metal clad building. Caddy-corner to Jaleo is what will be the most substantial addition yet to open at Disney Springs. According to the Disney Parks Blog, the new NBA Experience will include “immersive experiences, a retail store and an adjacent restaurant” in a high-tech venue that draws inspiration from NBA arenas around the nation. Slated to open summer of 2019, the NBA Experience replaces the now-closed DisneyQuest, but like DisneyQuest, this attraction will include interactive games alongside the new restaurant and retail shop. The final new addition to Disney Springs is an original show at the Cirque du Soleil location next to the new NBA Experience. No details on what the new show will be or when it will open have been shared, but late last year Cirque did confirm the new show will focus Disney's animated films. The show will be a collaboration between Cirque du Soleil and Disney. (Now that sounds interesting!) With the new show still likely a year or more away some have speculated that a temporary show might fill the live entertainment demand in the meantime. According to WDW News Today, the original plan was to open the touring show this summer, but parking concerns pushed it back until this upcoming spring after the third parking garage, currently under construction, opens. In the same blog post, WDW News Today points to Luzia as the potential temporary show headed to Disney Springs. The Mexican culture-inspired touring show has no scheduled shows after December 23. Currently, Luzia uses a giant whimsical looking circus tent for its shows. The tent might be used in Orlando allowing for extensive remodeling on the current Cirque Du Soleil theater while still meeting the demand for the show in Orlando. According to WDW News Today, Luzia should open at Disney Springs sometime in the spring of 2019. Past the five additions that have been confirmed other additions to the Disney Springs area includes a new hotel tower at the Best Western Lake Buena Vista on Hotel Boulevard, for which new public documents were just posted on Orange County’s website despite no announcements from any groups involved, and a rumored overhaul to other pre-existing establishments, including both Bongo’s and the Rainforest Café. There’s plenty of new things to check out already at Disney Springs, but the plan looks like Disney wants to keep that fact alive for years to come.

    Disney Employee Killed In Accident Near Pop Century

    When I went to school back.in the dark ages we covered journalism as part of English class. We were taught that only major stories that affected the world or the US went.on the front page above the fold. Then minor international/IS stories went below. The only exception was something gigantic affecting the local population. Now, every time a Kardashian sneezes it's front page headlines.

    Disney Employee Killed In Accident Near Pop Century

    Hey, who needs any sort of schooling in journalism anymore! I think they meant he was working and driving a utility cart. Where are the editors to catch these mistakes? Oh that's right snowflakes can't be criticized/corrected about anything or they will have a melt down while running to their attorney.

    Camp site trailer restrictions

    The fort is the biggest breaker of their own rules. They really don't enforce the partial site restrictions, including allowing dogs in tents and pop ups. I've seen plenty of trailers and small RVs in the 1500 and 2000 loops. Of course that doesn't mean you won't get a CM that is a stickler for the rules

    Toy Story Land Opening Day

    https://www.orlandoweekly.com/Blogs/archives/2018/07/12/video-shows-orlando-city-players-taking-on-green-army-men-from-disneys-toy-story-land Disney is keeping TSL in the media... And I can't see the video, maybe if you all follow the link you can. Video shows Orlando City players taking on Green Army Men from Disney's Toy Story Land In a match-up of massive cross-promotional proportions, Orlando City players and the Green Army Men from Disney's latest Toy Story Land attraction recently faced off on the pitch. In the short clip, players Jonathan Spector, Joe Bendik, Uri Rosell and Sacha Kljestan do their best footwork against the Army Men with a massive inflatable Pixar ball. According to Disney, Toy Story characters will also "play big" at the July 14 match against Toronto FC at Orlando City Stadium. Tickets are available here.

    Just like driving an old VW Beetle on icy roads.... no weight in the front end to give the tires any bite. I used to carry old antifreeze bottles filled with sand in the trunk to give the front end some weight in the winter. But it is an interesting concept, just would be better on bigger vehicles.

    Monday was a bad day for workers at WDW Man injured in fall at Walt Disney World hours after worker was killed in separate accident A worker was injured in an industrial accident at Walt Disney World late Monday, hours after a man was killed in a separate incident, according to authorities. The accident happened shortly after 10:30 p.m. at 2901 Osceola Parkway, the address for Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Deputy Ingrid Tejada-Monforte said. A man had fallen and injured himself before calling 911, Tejada-Monforte said. He was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. Disney spokeswoman Andrea Finger said the company is focused on assisting the worker and his family, but did not provide any additional information about the accident. “We wish him a full and smooth recovery,” Finger said. Monday night’s incident came about 12 hours after Juan Alberto Ojeda, 33 was killed in a reported accident near the Pop Century Resort. Details about what caused his death haven’t been released.
