ICYMII’m starting to get the fall spirit. This past weekend, I decorated my house with some new fall decor, I need to go buy some Halloween candy, and I’ve been enjoying pumpkin everything. What about you?

This week, learn about the status of Disney and Twitter, see what new book you’re going to want to read, and more.

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

 

Disney has a new marketing campaign for this upcoming year. It’s called The Magic is Endless. What do you think of this new campaign?

A number of Disney Resorts earned accolades from the 9th annual Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards. They include Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, Disney’s BoardWalk Inn, Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts, Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort, the Disneyland Hotel, Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort, Disney Cruise Line, and Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa. Curious about all the winners? They can be found here

It appears as though the flag-waving show at Epcot’s Italy Pavilion has ended its run. Will you miss this show?

One of the things we haven’t seen a lot of information about recently is what’s going on with the DVC expansion that’s occurring at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. Take a look at at the progress so far.

Oh my gosh! This is so incredibly cute! It may be the cutest thing you see all day. Meet Yahoo! (And no, I’m not talking about the search engine.)

Dole and Disney have partnered to offer even more Disney-themed produce in your local grocery store.

It appears that Disney has decided against making a bid for Twitter. See the interesting reason why.

Bob Iger has inked a deal with Random House to write a book on business leadership and management once he retires from Disney. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to pick up this one.

Forbes had an in depth article taking a look at some of the things you may not have known about the new Frozen Ever After attraction.

Disney has had its best year at the international box office, setting a record for the company.

To tie in with Moana, if you’re flying with Hawaiian Airlines, you could potentially get to fly on a plane that debuted this week that’s themed after the upcoming movie.

    “Bob Iger … write a book … once he retires from Disney … I can’t wait to pick up this one.”

    Hmm, I wonder what you’re implying 😉

    “The magic is endless” unlike your favorite attractions. Come see them before they’re closed.
