Laundry-How much has doing it at the resorts changed in 7 years?

intercot.com - Thu, 2018-02-08 03:46
Doing the math, it has been 7 years since I have done laundry at the resorts. It seems like most everything else has changed about staying on-property, so figured laundry has also. Can you still pay with quarters? Or, do you have to use your wristband? :laundry2:

Disney Parks & Resorts is giving a first look at the Alien Swirling Saucers attraction in Toy Story Land:

Once the aliens have powered up their flying saucers, you’ll get to climb into a toy rocket and hang on as aliens lead the way on an interstellar romp set to an out-of-this-world beat. And if you’re really lucky, you just might get “chosen” by the claw! As speculated, the attraction appears to be a re-themed version of Mater's Junkyard Jamboree from Disney California Adventure.

Star Wars TV Series is close, says Disney CEO Bob Iger

TheDisneyBlog.com - Wed, 2018-02-07 06:18

We’d heard about the potential for a Star Wars television series by Disney CEO Bob Iger after Disney bought Lucasfilm back in 2012. Of course, we’ve had a couple great animated series since then, but we still haven’t had a live-action television series set in the Star Wars galaxy. Last...

Marvel Studios Retrospective: Captain America: The First Avenger

Did anyone think Chris Evans would be a good choice to play Steve Rogers/Captain America? Rogers is an uptight, level-headed, no nonsense soldier.

Toy Story Mania Wait Time Impact Winter Through May 2018

Toy Story Mania has begun work to re-route the attraction to be entered and exited from inside the soon-to-open Toy Story Land. For the coming weeks, Guests may notice longer than recent wait times as phased closures occur on the third track followed by the two original tracks. After the phased closures, a full attraction closure is expected to complete the project closer to the Summer 2018 opening of the new land.
In addition to the extended wait times due to partitioned refurbishments, Studios Cast have now reported a temporary suspension of FastPass+ for the popular attraction. FastPass+ has been reportedly suspended from April 9th through May 7th, 2018.

The omission of this attraction from FastPass+ selections is also expected to put heavier demand on the other attractions in the same tier during this period.
