May the luck of the Irish be with you! I hope you have a great St. Patrick’s Day weekend! (PS: Walmart has adorable Minnie Mouse St. Patrick’s Day-themed ears….so if you’re interested, head to your nearest store now, but hurry! They were selling out fast when I went to pick up mine.)

This week, we learn a bit more of what to expect with the Fox merger, see which movie has been moved up on the Disney release timeline, and more.

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

Is Disney making a mistake with how they are opening Galaxy’s Edge, especially at Disneyland? What do you think?

I love this. Here are the reactions of some of the people who found out they would be working on Batuu.

Our thoughts are with the family of a man who died this week at Epcot.

So for the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival, the China booth is offering a ginormous cotton candy creation. I’ve seen it in person, so let me tell you that this thing is mammoth and you should definitely share it! These are gorgeous works of art and watching one be created is incredible.

Soon you’ll be parking in newly named lots at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Instead of Film, Music, etc, you’ll be parking in Mickey, Minnie, Woody, Jessie, Buzz, Olaf, and BB-8. What do you think of the name changes?

Disney has officially purchased a new island in the Bahamas. It’s known as Lighthouse Point on the island of Eleuthera.

There is a great Easter egg at the Captain Marvel meet and greet at Disney California Adventure.

The Disney/Fox merger looks like it will be finalized on March 20.

Holy cow! Captain Marvel made $455 Million worldwide this past weekend. Did you see the film? What did you think?

Did you lose your mind when you saw the new trailer for Avengers: Endgame?

Did you catch the latest trailer for Aladdin? Did it alleviate your fears of the film or were you already on board? (Or are you still not excited about this one?)

Dumbo is tracking to make about $55-$58 million on its opening weekend. What do you think about this film? Will you be seeing it in theaters? I’m torn myself.
