ICYMIAre you planning your summer vacations? I know I am and I’m excited for all the Disney fun that I have in store for our family this year! What about you? What are you most looking forward to?

This week, we learned that Disney’s earnings weren’t so hot, have incredible glimpses of Shanghai Disneyland, and much more!

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

 

This week was the Disney earnings call for the quarter. It appears that things weren’t as rosy as they have been.

During the call, one of the topics of course, went to Tom Staggs departure and Bob Iger’s successor. Many wonder if Bob will be sticking around, but as of right now, it appears he will not.

Also, Disney has decided it is going to fold its interactive department, including Disney Infinity. Are you shocked or saddened by this news? Who is selling the Disney Infinity characters on ebay now?

Is a new entryway on tap to allow easier access for Disney’s Hollywood Studios? Upcoming roadwork may suggest that it is possible.

In addition, a new entrance is potentially in development for the Magic Kingdom’s entrance.

    After seeing on-ride video of Tron and Pirates of the Caribbean in Shanghai, I feel like we here in the states are getting gypped. Hopefully that changes when Star Wars Land (Experience?) opens (and does so soon!)
