Lots of news about Walt Disney World Parks recently and we wanted to bring it to you in one place. Some things are going away (permanently and temporarily), some things are moving, and there are some schedule changes you will want to know about!
You can read all about the Resort Check-In Testing going on a select Disney Resorts over the next couple weeks.
In princess news, Sleeping Beauty/Aurora will no longer be meeting with Anna and Elsa from Frozen in Princess Fairytale Hall inside the Magic Kingdom. She will be greeting her subjects in the Town Square Courtyard. Snow White will also be moving to this location as well. The best way to meet them will be to pick up a Times Guide as you enter the Magic Kingdom. This paper will let you know the hours of the meets and you can plan accordingly.
The American Idol Experience inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios is slated to close January 2015. This attraction is based on the TV show and if you won the show at Hollywood Studios you received a golden ticket which gives front of the line access at any American Idol audition. And in the last year 3 of the top 13 contestants tried out for the version at Walt Disney World. So if you have always dreamed of doing this attraction, your chances are limited so make sure it goes to the top of your to-do list for your next vacation.
The pool at The Wilderness Lodge has been added to the refurbishment list from late September through November of 2014.
