Walt Disney Imagineering Launches "Project H" Near Disney's Hollywood Studios

intercot.com - Tue, 2018-04-03 01:17
Walt Disney Imagineering has recently filed two permits with the South Florida Water Management District for "Project H" near Disney's Hollywood Studios.

The first permit (Application #:180402-434) is an exploratory permit to perform a geotechnical boring in the Project H site.

The second permit (Permit#:48-00714-P) is to clear the 9.5 Acre Project H site (shown in Blue).

The details and diagrams for the two permits are summarized below:

Issuing Office: ORL/SFWMD
Permit Type: Environmental Resource (New General Permit)
Project Name: Project H Wetland Borings
Project Acres: 0.02
Landuse(s): Commercial And Services
Location: Orange S31/T24/R28

Project Name: Project H - Clearing/ Stockpile
Project Acres: 9.5
Landuse(s): Commercial And Services

Based on the proximity of the 9.5 acre project site just south of the future Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge land, it is anticipated that "Project H" is the yet-to-be-named Star Wars Hotel. Attached Images

New Digital Room Key Coming for Bluetooth Enabled Devices at Walt Disney World

intercot.com - Tue, 2018-04-03 00:53
Walt Disney World has announced a new "Digital Room Key" feature to roll out for Bluetooth Enabled Devices using the MyDisneyExpereince App:

Quote: Originally Posted by Disney Parks & Resorts

Coming soon to Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, a new feature in the My Disney Experience app will allow guests to quickly unlock their hotel room using a digital key on their mobile devices, providing them with another seamless room entry option that brings added ease and flexibility to their experience.

Guests can also use their digital key to unlock the hotel entrance gate and common area doors requiring a key, which may include pools, fitness centers, elevators and club level lounges. Arriving travel parties that have checked in online may even use their digital key to bypass the need to visit the front desk, giving them the opportunity to go directly to their room when it is ready and start their vacation even faster.

The feature represents the latest evolution of keyless room entry, which we began offering with the MagicBand, the unique all-in-one device that effortlessly connects the vacation choices guests make in My Disney Experience. Guests may use either or both options to enter their room during their stay.

So how does it work? To use their digital key, guests can opt in and activate the feature on their check-in day through a brief set up process in the app. To enter their room, guests tap the “Unlock Door” button and then simply hold their phone against the door lock.

... Bluetooth®-enabled mobile devices with the latest version of the My Disney Experience app are required to take advantage of a digital key for room entry. And don’t forget to wear your MagicBand for all other uses including park entry, FastPass+ redemption, room charges and more.

The new feature is expected to be rolled-out in phases to other Walt Disney World resort hotels, much like the MagicBand Access Points were initially.

Overnight refurbs at AK

intercot.com - Mon, 2018-04-02 12:44
A few months ago I rode Dinosaur and it was in terrible shape. Many AAs not working, sound was off, even the big dinosaur at the end didn’t come down. I’ve been riding this ride every couple weeks since and I was happy to see that things slowing were getting better. We rode it just last week and it was absolutely perfect. All effects were right on and the dinosaur chase now sounds like the dinosaur is chasing you.

I noticed the same thing at the It’s Tough to Be a Bug. The screen was blurry, Hopper didn’t come up at all and they were running a shorter version a few months ago. Now, it’s all like new again. All effects working.

Just goes to show you that Disney can refurb at night. They probably didn’t want to reduce park capacity during Spring Break, so they refurbished the ride at night. I wish they would do this with all the rides. It’s sad when a family only comes once every few years and rides are closed for refurbishment.
