In Case You Missed It: News and Rumors – Week of June 12, 2020

Share This!

I am excited! This weekend, I am headed to Orlando and I’m going to get to experience Disney Springs and CityWalk (I am pretty sure I’ll also be heading to CityWalk) since both the destinations closed. Don’t worry! I plan to constantly wash my hands, keep properly distanced as best I can, and I’ve got my mask ready to go!

This week, find out what closure is really hitting me hard, see what new musical Disney has in the works, and more.

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

The Walt Disney Company pledges $5 Million to support nonprofit organizations that advance social justice.

Comcast, which is part of NBCUniversal, will also be donating to fight injustice and inequality.

If you know anything about me, you know that the charity that I hold near and dear to my heart is Give Kids the World. This is the location where critically ill children get to visit when they request their Make a Wish trip. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, this facility is going to have to close indefinitely until things change and lay off most of their staff. My hope is that things can rebound quickly and this wonderful facility can go back to making kids wishes a reality once again here soon. You can learn more about Give Kids the World here.

I love this! Learn how to make adorable Winnie the Pooh themed letters for your child’s room!

In things I never thought I’d read news, apparently Disney may be working on a musical based on Lionel Richie called All Night Long. I can’t make this up.

Oh my gosh!!! We have “floating” coins for Super Nintendo World in Japan! This is gonna be such a cool experience when it opens in Orlando eventually.
