In Case You Missed It!

Um…somebody please tell me how it’s now AUGUST?! I don’t understand how that happened already! Where did summer go?

This week we have lots of great articles, including some fun stuff about Guardians of the Galaxy, an 80s television tribute video for “Let it Go,” and more. Read on for more!

In Case You Missed It – Disney and Universal Orlando News and Rumors


If you are in Orlando this weekend, and you love yo-yos, make sure to check out Duncan Toys’ International Yo-Yo Competition being held at the House of Blues at Downtown Disney.

The Four Seasons Orlando opens this weekend officially to guests and since the resort is on Disney property, it has a few Disney-related influences. Find out what they are in this Orlando Sentinel article. 

When visiting the Orlando area, there are a ton of free things that you can do. This Parade article talks about not only some of the free things that can be done at Walt Disney World, but also around the whole city. Something to keep in mind on your next trip.

Disney Cruise Line won several awards in the inaugural “Bon Voyage Awards” for The ships won for “Best Mainstream Cabins,” “Best On-board Evening Activities,” Best Services for Children under Three,” and “Best Services for Children Ages 3-12.” Congrats!

Today, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy was released and I’ve heard excellent things about this movie. Matter of fact, it is expected to do so well that they are already working on a sequel, which is slated to come out in theaters July 28, 2017!

Speaking of Guardians, with the release of the movie, the press has been booming with articles. One of them shows what a good guy Chris Pratt (who plays Star-Lord) really is, by surprising an audience at a charity screening. Also, read about how Nicole Perlman made history as the first female writer credited on a Marvel Studios film. Who’s going to see this movie this weekend?

Some people are so talented that it just blows my mind. I ran across this YouTube video of “80s TV Sings Let It Go.” This is so neat and had to have taken a LOT of time to create.

I wish to see the first trailer for Disney’s Into the Woods, which gets released on Christmas Day this year. I see my wish has come true! Check out the trailer for yourself!

For those who are excited about Star Wars, guess what? Even Mark Hamill is thrilled that he’s in the upcoming movie, according to this interview with Time.

What is one of the keys to Disney’s success as of late? The Motley Fool believe one piece of the puzzle is that the company has and creates its own content. Make sure to read on to see what the other piece is.
