A new transportation system at Walt Disney World called the Disney Skyliner was officially announced at last weekend’s D23 Expo.
The gondola-style system will connect Disney’s Hollywood Studios and the International Gateway at Epcot via stops at Disney’s Art of Animation, Pop Century and Caribbean Beach resorts, plus other locations yet to be announced.
It was announced this weekend at D23 Expo the Universe of Energy attraction at Epcot will be closing in August 2017.
The Universe of Energy is one of the park’s original rides, opening on Epcot’s opening date of October 1, 1982. It featured numerous films that presented information on the subject of energy, as well as a ride through a primeval diorama complete with audio-animatronic dinosaurs.
Two new attractions were announced for Epcot at this weekend’s D23 Expo, and one of them will be Guardians of the Galaxy-inspired.
This attraction will not be the same as the recently opened Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!, which debuted at Disney California Adventure park earlier this year..
Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, announced at D23 this weekend that a Tron-themed attraction will be coming to Magic Kingdom‘s Tomorrowland.
Set to open during Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary in 2021, the TRON Lightcycle Power Run is a coaster-style attraction where riders board a train of two-wheeled Lightcycles, similar to the cycle game from the original movie.
The D23 news is flying fast and furious, and word comes that a new space-themed restaurant will be coming to Epcot.
It will be located adjacent to the park’s Mission: SPACE attraction, according to Disney. Perhaps it will occupy the space where the Wonders of Life building currently sits mostly unused, but that wasn’t clarified during the D23 reveal by Walt Disney Imagineer Tom Fitzgerald.
It’s the heart of summer here in Central Florida, but over at Disney Springs, it’s Christmas in July starting today until the end of the month.
Until July 30, there will be special holiday-themed treats, merchandise and entertainment offerings throughout Disney Springs.

Planet Hollywood has been an iconic restaurant on Disney property since it opened, but many wondered if the recent remodel and revamp would change the great food and fun atmosphere.
It did…and for the better, in my opinion.
The finished version of the Planet Hollywood Observatory features three floors of seating inside, with a new outside screened terrace that offers a great view of Disney Springs.
Paddlefish, a seafood-centric restaurant, is now open in The Landing at Disney Springs for your dining pleasure, and it’s definitely a don’t-miss place to eat.

The new design includes a variety of comfortable seating, large windows to enjoy the view of Disney Springs, and three floors for guests to enjoy, including a new rooftop deck on the third floor.
