In Case You Missed It: Disney News and Rumors – Week of November 3, 2017

Share This!

In Case You Missed ItDo I say Jingle Halloween? I feel like this week really is like The Nightmare Before Christmas….what happens when two holidays collide! You have the remainder of the Halloween festivities, but Christmas is quickly approaching with decor appearing quite rapidly. My head is spinning!

So….who is going to see Thor: Ragnarok this weekend? Are you totally excited, or what?

This week, we have news about a restaurant closing at Universal Orlando, a look at who Kristen Bell dressed up as for Halloween, and more.

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

Just call Len Testa, The Disrupter! Make sure you read this recent Popular Science article that talks about TouringPlans and what the author learned. You may learn some things too.

Big changes are coming to Disneyland Resort and the OC Register looks at some other changes that need to happen before the bigger changes start coming on line and crowds get even bigger. What do you think and which suggestion do you think is the best overall?

With it being Halloween week, take a look at the magic behind one of a beloved Disney attraction, The Haunted Mansion, straight from someone who had a hand in the creation of this famous ride.

Ok all…this looks pretty legit…what do you think about the cast of The Lion King. (I still think there should be a cameo of JTT…#AlwaysAFangirl)

Looks like we know who Kristen Bell’s daughter’s favorite Frozen character is.

Speaking of Halloween costumes….you all know my love for Justin Timberlake is well, large….well this year, his family took the cake for adorable. (I promise, there’s a Disney reference here….LOL!)

Universal Orlando has purchased another 101 acres of land. The plot thickens.

Speaking of interesting, looks like big changes are also in store for Universal’s hotels because the chain behind them, Loews Hotels, as they mentioned in an article that in the next several weeks, they plan to announce a big project that will be our largest investment so far in Orlando in terms of both rooms and dollars. Again, things are getting interesting.

Emeril’s Tchoup Chop in the Loews Royal Pacific Resort will close on December 31.
