Our in-parks team is in Disney theme parks every week recording wait times, trying food, soaking in the atmosphere, and looking for any changes that might impact your vacation. Here’s eight changes that stood out to us this week.

Nighttime Show Returns to Hollywood Studios

Although Fantasmic continues to be on hiatus, there is some nighttime fun to be had at Disney’s Hollywood Studios with the return of Wonderful World of Animation. Some of the effects on the Chinese Theater are really impressive and overall the show is a fun way to end your evening.

Fall Comes to Magic Kingdom

Over at Magic Kingdom, fall decor has started to appear on Main Street USA. It’s hard to believe, but Boo Bash events start next week! You can see more pictures of the transformation of Main Street here.

Refurb Work in Fantasyland

Over in Fantasyland, refurbishment work to spruce everything up before October 1 is ongoing, and so you may see interestingly placed planters or scaffolding during your day.

Hall of Presidents Reopens

Meanwhile in Liberty Square, Hall of Presidents has reopened with the new President Biden audio-animatronic in the show.

New Paint Added To Small World

Small World is getting some colorful new accents. It really helps the queue area pop! What do you think of the new paint job?

Toledo and Yachtsman Steakhouse Reopen

Around the resorts, Toledo at Disney’s Coronado Springs and Yachtsman Steakhouse at Disney’s Yacht Club have both reopened. These are wonderful options if you’re looking for a higher-end meal.

Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor Reopens

If corny jokes is more of your thing, Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor has reopened. Maybe we could have That Guy buy us dinner at Toledo?

Columbia Harbour House and Tomorrowland’s Cool Ship Reopen

Fan favorite Columbia Harbour House has also reopened, along with Cool Ship in Tomorrowland. Every reopening feels like a reason for celebration, but there’s a lot of people on the team who are especially excited for Columbia Harbour House!
