You know what else is here? Halloween Horror Nights! Who is looking forward to getting their wits scared out of them? Which house looks the best this year?

This week, see what to expect from black-ish‘s season premiere filmed at Walt Disney World, Woody and Dory together (?), and more!

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


Two Cast Members have been selected as the new Walt Disney World ambassadors. This is a honored position where these individuals will represent their co-workers and the company.

Both Disney and Universal won 2016 Amusement Today Golden Ticket Awards. Find out which ones they took home. What do you think of the rankings?

This year will be the final year for the Turner Classic Movies Classic Cruise on Disney Cruise Line. No questions are popping up about what this means for their recent partnership too.

Castaway Cay was honored as the top cruise line private island by Cruise Critic. The top-rated destination was chosen by cruisers. It’s an honor that I think is well deserved.

Apparently Disney almost built a Myst Island area. What do you think of this potential idea?

The cuts just keep coming within the Walt Disney Company as about 250 jobs were lost in the consumer products and digital media staff.

Make sure to set your DVRs! Black-ish‘s Walt Disney World episode will air next Wednesday. I’ve got mine set already! Take a peek at what you can expect.

Well this is ridiculously awesome. What if Woody from Toy Story and Dory from Finding Nemo met? Also, Ellen and Tom Hanks’ conversation about filming these movies is spectacular. I can say I learned something.

I am so ready! This is a movie I am very much looking forward to. What do you think of Moana?

Who is ready to go amuck, amuck, amuck over Hocus Pocus and other great Halloween movies? Freeform has released their schedule for their 13 Nights of Halloween.

Get ready for Dreamworks in the theme parks. That is, at least, according to NBCUniversal CEO Steve Burke. He stated that all the DreamWorks characters will start to emerge in the theme parks. Who do you most want to meet or have an attraction based off of from this collection of characters?
