Share This!

Who is like me and just soaking up every possible second of summer that’s left? I can’t believe that were are just a few days away from September and the start of pumpkin spice everything. (Though, of course, technically, pumpkin everything has already started at the Magic Kingdom, what with the start of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party tonight.) How are you soaking up your last days of summer?

This week, learn what new Instagrammable treat you’re going to want to get, see who’s joined the cast of Kim Possible, and more.

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

Our thoughts are with the family of the worker who was killed this week at the Walt Disney World Resort.

Looking for the newest WDW food craze? Look no further than the Mermaid doughnut which will be found in the Magic Kingdom. Who else is going to be getting one of these beauties?

A new mandrill was born at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and it’s so adorable!!!

The rumor that the Wreck-It Ralph attraction as the replacement for Stitch’s Great Escape are swirling again.

I think this broke the internet this week. Take a look at the Disney Princesses in a way you’ve never expected to see them, courtesy of Ralph Breaks the Internet. What do you think of this?

You all may know that I have a slight thing for the band ‘NSYNC, right? (I mean….that’s where my obsession for Justin Timberlake got started….) So, imagine my delight when I came across this article where former ‘NSYNC band mate and also former Mickey Mouse Club alum stopped by to talk with the new Club Mickey Mouse cast. He also did a little interview with Oh My Disney.

Have you seen this little teaser for the upcoming Jungle Cruise film? I can already feel the hype. Really excited about this one.

Two actors who were in the original Kim Possible will be in the live action version that’s slated for next year! Who else is excited?

The dates for Universal’s fun annual event, Mardi Gras will be returning once again in the late winter! This really is a great event, if you haven’t been to it yet.

    Also in Disney news this week D23 is stopping international members from renewing and joining as D23 Gold members. The decision was made August 15th and I received an email August 16th.

    Was anyone else shocked and disappointed by this announcement?
