Share This!

It’s been another pretty busy week at the In Case You Missed It office! There’s been a lot of great small tidbits and many things, I bet you missed!

What did you maybe miss? Oh how about the new dessert menu offerings on the Disney Dream. Or maybe you missed who is rumored to be cast as Timon and Pumbaa. Or just maybe you missed a new character for Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom. Whatever you missed, we’ve got you covered!

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


I think….I think that Johnny Depp made an appearance at Disneyland as Captain Jack Sparrow on Pirates of the Caribbean. I say that because my collective Twitter timeline lost it for about it for a good two days.

If you are in Disneyland and you visit Starbucks, you can try the Pink Pegasus. If you are in Walt Disney World and visit Starbucks, you can try the Pink Flamingo!

When you ride Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission BREAKOUT! at DCA, you’ll get to enjoy some great music. Find out which tracks are going to be included in the attraction. Which do you want to hear most?

I have to say that this, so far, is the best article I have read regarding Pandora – The World of Avatar. It goes into depth about what we are expected to experience when we step foot in the land at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

With Pandora, there will be an additional 700 Cast Members hired. Also, take a look at the new costumes for the land and learn what each person’s role will be.

A new “character” has debuted at the Magic Kingdom. A new talking robot named iCan is now appearing in Tomorrowland. Would you like to meet him?

Speaking of Tomorrowland…is the Incredibles Dance Party coming to an end?

About 500 Walt Disney World employees could be affected by a federal immigration agency’s recommendation that the United States soon end temporary protections for about 50,000 Haitians.

This quarter’s injury report for Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando has been released.

A new rumor is floating around about a potential volcano coaster being added to the Magic Kingdom, courtesy of Jim Hill. Would you like to see this come to fruition? (Also, what do you think of the other rumors mentioned? You can certainly tell that it’s almost time for D23 Expo. The rumors always fly at about this time of year on Expo years.)

Disney Cruise Line is introducing a Signature Dessert Menu on the Disney Dream! Which ones sound the best to you?

I think, with this trailer, the Cars franchise has redeemed itself from that terrible abomination of Cars 2. (Can you tell I didn’t like Cars 2?) I am officially excited! Oh and I have a new favorite quote that came from the trailer….”Don’t fear failure. Be afraid of not having the chance.”

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will see its world premiere at Shanghai Disneyland!

Want to know the upcoming slate of Disney movies? Disney has set the timeline for the next few years.  (Frozen 2!) Take a look. Which movie are you most excited about?

Seth Rogan and Billy Eichner? As Pumba and Timon? Ok….

In Case We Missed It

What did we miss? Attach your ideas to a H20 Sea Marine & Sea Salt Spa Collection and send it to with the words “In Case You Missed It” in the subject line.
