→ More Delicious Details for Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar, Opening This Fall at Downtown Disney

I think I’d give the calamari flatbread a shot.

→ Disney to reinvent the theme park shopping experience with new mobile app

From WDW Magic:

Called ‘Shop Disney Parks,’ the app will allow guests to locate, order, and ship merchandise from any Disney operated retail store at Walt Disney World.

By linking in with My Disney Experience, the app will also honor discounts, such as Annual Pass and Disney Vacation Club discounts.

Though I don’t have any doubts about the “Shop Disney Parks” rumor, I will be the “honor discounts” part when I see it.

→ Breakfast at ‘Be Our Guest Restaurant’ becomes a permanent addition at the Magic Kingdom

Shocking. I’m shocked.

→ Newest Rumor: One Man’s Dream and Voyage of the Little Mermaid to Close in September

It will be interesting to see if this takes place. If they’re going to do this, D23 better have some big announcements.

→ Garden Grill Restaurant Breakfast and Lunch Reservations Open Today

I wonder how this will impact early morning touring. Being right next to Soarin’ before the park opens could be a “game changer.”

→ Disney’s Hollywood Studios: Is It Still Worth Your Time?

Linking this to give James Rosemergy a plug on his first piece at TouringPlans. Congrats, James!

→ Complete Guide to Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto Tiki Mugs

I admit, I really want a Hippopatamaitai in one of the tiki mugs.

A good reference for people who can’t remember all of the details of the past few Marvel movies.

→ The Princess and the Frog, Frozen, and Tangled Added to Fantasmic! at Walt Disney World

I’m glad to see they are working to revamp this show, even in advance of the more full revamp rumored for next year.

→ Dates confirmed for this year’s Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights

It looks like Elyssa and I will be running through the Osborne Lights in November.

→ Celebrity Spotting: Marvel’s Falcon, Anthony Mackie, at the Magic Kingdom

I just think this is awesome.

→ First Promo For Guardians Of The Galaxy Animated Series

I’ll probably watch this (and, by “watch this”, I mean I’ll watch an episode or two and then fall way behind.)

→ New Trailer for Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur

This looks fantastic.

→ New and Returning Marketplace Items to the 2015 Epcot Food and Wine Festival — easyWDW

Speaking of Food and Wine, here’s the Easy WDW post about all of this year’s menu changes.

→ Don’t Miss The 20th Epcot International Food & Wine Festival!

There have been a lot of posts about this year’s Food & Wine festival, but here’s the official Disney Parks Blog one.

→ The BOATHOUSE at Disney Springs now offers passholder discounts

Good news for us annual pass holders.

→ Disney Announces Attraction Line-Up for Shanghai Disneyland

Yes, I am a little jealous that this stuff isn’t coming to Disney World.

→ February 2016 at Walt Disney World

Just in case anyone is going to see if they can get a glass slipper.

Some Disney World Hotel Links

Here are a couple of links about non-Disney hotels at Walt Disney World that might be useful as you plan your next WDW vacation:

→ ‘Frozen Ever After:’ An Exclusive Look at Disney’s Upcoming Attraction – Speakeasy – WSJ

Some really interesting bits in this Wall Street Journal article:

Maelstrom, on which visitors ride a floating log on a tour through Norwegian mythology, has been “gutted,” Ms. Mangum said, and is currently getting “a whole new overlay with ‘Frozen.’” While the logs and the path will remain the same, everything you see along the way is being replaced.

The audio-animatronic characters will be cutting edge, Ms. Mangum said, using a new technology that includes projectors behind the faces to enable more lifelike animation. It was first used on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train ride that opened in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom last year.

There is no doubt that the ride is going to be a huge hit, but I think it’s going to be a really good experience, too.
