Abigail Disney, Roy E. Disney’s daughter, has lit the Twitter-verse on fire this week thanks to an article that ran in Fast Company. Read what she thinks about the pay that Bob Iger makes, and more in another article that she shares in the Washington Post.

Disneyland Cast Members won’t be able to get into Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge until after the summer is over, at least for now. They will be blocked out until August 31.

Disney held a HUGE premiere for Avengers: Endgame.

The cast of Avengers: Endgame recaps the entire Marvel franchise on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon by singing their own superhero version of “We Didn’t Start the Fire.” And it is epic (and you may need tissues for the end…)
