This week, it’s been all about the return of Pumpkin Spice Latte. While normally I’d think it was a bit too soon, this year….it’s fine….it brings a lot of happiness to people, and that’s what we need more of. Happiness. So, go get your Pumpkin Spice Latte, if that’s what you’re into. After this year, you deserve it!

This week, see where you can get unique Star Wars content, find out what Josh D’Amaro has to say about reopening the theme parks, and more.

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

I’ve been to Walt Disney World now, in the heat, wearing a mask. It may be hot and uncomfortable at times, but whatever you do, don’t be like this guy.

Good news! Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis says the state supports the Central Florida theme parks adding capacity.

They are just waiting for the ok! Disneyland Resort is ready to reopen its theme parks as soon as California guidelines allow it according to Josh D’Amaro. Hear more from Josh on the Dow Report.

This was not the “theme park” news we were expecting this week. But, Star Wars Kids has some new videos themed around Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. This also wasn’t the news that was expected that the world of Batuu awaits your Sim with The Sims 4 Star Wars Journey to Batuu Game Pack which will be available on September 8!

We’ve got a first look of the upcoming Disney film, Raya and the Last Dragon.

ABC has released their fall schedule and it’s pretty heavy on unscripted stuff….which makes sense….pandemic.

    Just a little suggestion for us colorblind folks: could you please make the links in each paragraph a completely different color? I had to tap on every single word in that first paragraph because I couldn’t identify which word was the link. Thanks!

    Question on predicting crowd levels… Have you (or anyone) ever used dining reservation availability (via the Disney world app or website) to predict crowd levels? For example, I’m looking at Hollywood Studios for a Tuesday visit… no dining availability for a Tuesday visit, but plenty of availability on Wednesday and Thursday of the same week. Thoughts?
