Share This!

ICYMIHappy Easter everyone! I hope you enjoy your Easter weekend and that if you’re traveling, you travel safe.

This week, I have a great Zootopia nail tutorial, a way to potentially meet Chris Pratt, and much more. Are you ready to gain some premium knowledge? Than let’s get started!

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


A small fire broke out at the Festival of the Lion King earlier this week. No injuries occurred.

This is such a tragic story and makes me want to put out the reminder. If you are struggling with depression and thinking about taking your own life, there is help. Call 1 (800) 273-8255. And know that there are people out there who care.

Muppets Courtyard…it could be a thing at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Have you wondered what River Country looks like now? This photographer shares a look. (Don’t try this unless you want to be booted off Disney property.) Do you remember River Country?

Do you listen to Disney podcasts? This article shares some of the best. (Though I may be a bit biased towards a couple of them that just so happen to be listed…)

The Walt Disney Company ranks number 2 on the list of the World’s Most Reputable Companies for 2016, published in Forbes.

If you’ve been to an Orlando theme park this week, you already know this.  (Hello crowds!) Orlando is the number 1 destination for Spring Break.

This was neat. See the actors posed next to their characters from the upcoming The Jungle Book. Are you anxious for this film?

Disney and Marvel could potentially need to find a new location to film future movies.

Looking forward to Rogue One? You’ll get to catch a prequel of the prequel in comic book form!

A chance to hang out with Chris Pratt on the set of Guardians AND the ability to help raise money for a wonderful charity? Sign me up!

As a binge watcher, this makes me very happy to see.  Now if some of the other networks could get on board.

If you’re a gamer, you may want to look into downloading Disney Magic Kingdoms on your mobile device. It’s similar to Roller Coaster Tycoon in that you build the world. Have you played with it yet? What are your thoughts?

Speaking of fun games…play Heads Up with a Disney twist!

Learn how to paint your nails in a cute Zootopia-inspired way!

The Incredible Hulk coaster is incredible and whole once again!

    We stayed at Ft. Wilderness several times when River Country was still there and it was always a must visit. Too bad they couldn’t find a way to keep it open. It would be like Ft. Wilderness having it’s own water park.

    I continue to be fascinated by the fact that River Country is still there, on property, just rotting away. Something about that seems so bizarre and un-Disney to me. I don’t blame people for being tempted to sneak in and get a look, honestly.
