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


You may remember the story of Walt Disney Company employees who had to train their replacements from about a year ago. Well, a couple of the former tech workers are filing a lawsuit accusing the company and two outsourcing firms of conspiring to replace workers with less costly foreign ones using H-1B visas.

This is a fantastic interview! D23 recently interviewed Disney Legend X Atencio about his days as a Disney storyteller.

Could a new Hawaiian retailer be coming to Disney Springs? According to the Orlando Business Journal, that would be a yes.

A new venue is on tap to be built for the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex. What would you like to see?

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. If you are not reading Floyd Norman’s blog, you need to be! This week he talks about the Walt Disney that he knew.

Star Wars and Marvel…looks like they are continuing forever.

Disney Historian David Gerstein shares his thoughts about the recently rediscovered Oswald Short that will be able to be found as part of an exclusive digital bonus on the Disney Movies Anywhere app.

To make way for the refreshed The Muppets which comes back from its winter hiatus next week, a fun video was released that flashes back, in a good way.
