It’s official! Spring is here. Ok…maybe not by the actual calendar, but this week was the kick off for the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival, which is my sign that spring is upon us! And I’m ready to stop and smell the roses!

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

 

Add another notch on Victoria & Albert’s belt. They received 5 stars on the Forbes Travel Guide.

Could a Black Panther attraction for a Disney park be in the works? According to Bob Iger, it’s possible.

Speaking of rumored attractions, this week, the rumor of Indiana Jones is popping up once again. What do you think of this possible rumor?

Both Coco and Avatar Flight of Passage were honored by the Visual Effects Society (VES).

Well, my 8 year old self is pretty darn happy….because Disney and McDonald’s have partnered together once again for Happy Meals!

What?! The Rocketeer is coming back? It’s slated to air on Disney Junior and features a new story, but it will still be based off the comic.

In addition, speaking of new shows, Disney Channel will be introducing two new shows, Amphibia, a comedy about a girl who gets transported to the titular world, and The Owl House, a horror comedy about a teenage human girl who stumbles upon a portal to the Demon Realm.

While I’m not sure that I love the idea of a new character (and what appears to be the removal of another favorite character) I’m still kind of excited about the Muppet Babies tv show. And this week we got to hear the theme song.

Things are getting a little more interesting with the Redbox/Disney feud. Take a look at the latest. What are your thoughts on this?

Color Of Change and AMC Theatres are teaming up to provide tickets to underprivileged children for screenings of A Wrinkle in Time.

Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m certainly ready for Ralph to break the internet.

The Walt Disney Company is donating $1 million to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s youth STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) programs in celebration of Black Panther.

Frozen deubted on Broadway this past weekend and there’s a new song called “Monster” from Elsa. Take a look and let us know if you like the song.

This is kind of cool. Take a look back at the various nighttime lagoon shows for Universal Studios Florida.

These look incredible. Hard Rock Hotel is adding new Future Rock Star Suites. While these suites are geared towards tweens and teens, I think they look kind of fun too!
