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


Are you a fan of Fantasy Football? If so, consider attending the inaugural ESPN Fantasy Football Convention, where guests will have unprecedented access to ESPN Fantasy Experts, experience an exclusive Tailgate Party, sit in on a live broadcast of Fantasy Football Now on ESPN2, and more! While it’s a lot costly ($641.00 per person-based on double occupancy), it does sound like a once in a lifetime experience.

I came across this intriguing article about the history for building AudioAnamatronics. I always find it so fascinating to learn this kind of stuff.

Thinking about cruising with a baby? Disney Cruise Line was named by USA Today as one of the best cruise lines to take an infant or toddler on.

In “what the heck did I just see” news…apparently Pearl Jam performed a bit of “Let It Go” at a recent concert….so…there’s that…Also…I found this video parodying “Do You Want To Build a Snowman” featuring Star Wars characters…this is a weird week for Frozen stuff…

The more I hear about the upcoming Pixar movie, Inside Out, the more excited I get. This article, from Vulture talks about “What Pixar’s New Movie Will Mean To Girls.”

For those of you who grew up in the 90s, one of the best shows (that has currently achieved cult status, as of late) is “Boy Meets World.” Well tonight, on the Disney Channel, “Girl Meets World” premieres. This is officially your reminder to set your DVRs! Welcome back to TV, Cory and Topanga! (Why do I have a feeling this show is going to be watched by more adults than any other age group?)

Jimmy Fallon had Pitbull on his show in Orlando last week and for those who missed this epic giant Duff Beer pong game, here it is in all it’s glory!

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley’s opening day is rapidly approaching (11 days and counting…not that I’m excited or anything.) Being based off the Harry Potter books, one would expect that there would be a ton of hidden gems found inside this new area of the park. Of course, that assumption would be correct. The media got a sneak peek of the area last week and I found not one, but two articles featuring hidden details. (There are a couple of repeats in the articles, but for the most part, good information to know for fans.) Of course, if you want to be completely spoiler-free, then don’t click on the links. For more Harry Potter info, get ready, because fellow TouringPlans blogger Seth Kubersky is set to release a bunch of great articles all about this new area next week! I can’t wait to read them!

Speaking of Harry Potter, there will be a really cool special airing on NBC on Monday evening (June 30) all about the construction, as well as behind the scenes looks at Diagon Alley, hosted by Meredith Viera. If you are excited about this new land, you are going to want to catch this hour long special called “Harry Potter: The Making of Diagon Alley.”
