News by Parks:

Magic Kingdom

No significant news to report

Animal Kingdom

UP! A Great Bird Adventure” has been performed in the Caravan Theater for the last few years, but for now, “Feathered Friends in Flight” will be taking over with a more socially distant show. Russell and Dug no longer appear, instead there are just a couple of Cast Members.

Epcot:

On reopening day, people noticed that Spaceship Earth and Mary Poppins had been removed from the show at the EPCOT Experience. Disney then released a statement confirming that the projects are in fact postponed:

“As with most businesses during this period, we are further evaluating long-term project plans. The decision was made to postpone the development of the “Mary Poppins”-inspired attraction and Spaceship Earth.”

Hollywood Studios

Guests can request to join the virtual queue for Rise of the Resistance via the My Disney Experience app at three different times during the day: 10 AM, 1 PM, and 4 PM (ET). Previously, all virtual queue spots were released when the park opens. Guests must be within Disney’s Hollywood Studios to request a queue spot.

Once inside the park, open up the My Disney Experience app and then scroll down until you see this Rise of the Resistance. Finally, tap the “Join” button to enter the virtual queue. The request process will open at each of the three scheduled times.

Annual Passholders:

Walt Disney World to Increase Number of Park Reservations Available for Annual Passholders Starting July 16th; Disney’s Hollywood Studios Excluded

It’s important to note that this will launch on July 16th for select dates in July and August at Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Disney’s Hollywood Studios is not included in the added availability. Annual Passholders are still limited to just 3 theme park reservations at a time, on a rolling basis.

Note: this is not an increase in actual park capacity. Health and safety guidelines set park capacity. However, increases the percentage of annual passholder spots to individual ticket sales.  

Annual Passholder now save 30% until August 14th

Rumor: Reflections speculation continues.
