Good tuna fish.- A demonstration of Milk in a Bag, and whether you need to seal milk shut in your fridge- Epcot Monorail isn’t currently running so you’ve got to take a bus or the Skyliner- Splash Mountain was drained and needing repairs over the last week; not related to the Princess and the Frog overlay they’re planning- The TTA Wedway Peoplemover (Metroliner Non-Stop Now Departing Rocket Tower Plaza Station For A Super Skyway Tour) is still down needing extensive repairs. It’s been closed since March.- The blinking/winking hippo in It’s A Small World is still suffering from wonky eyes (and could maybe use some WD-40)- Primeval Whirl is permanently closed and the cars have been removed from the track, never to come back - presumably because the builder of the ride went out of business and getting replacement parts is too difficult- What’s going to happen with Dinoland? Are any new replacements coming in this economy?- The actor who plays Dr. Seeker is now on Apple TV’s new show For All Mankind (if you’re missing him!)- We touch on renos that aren’t going to go forward anymore due to budget slashing (eg. Spaceship Earth refurb, Mary Poppins announced ride, Space 220 restaurant, etc.)- Halloween Horror Nights and Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party are cancelled this year- RunDisney Wine & Dine weekend is cancelled this year however they’re converting it to a Virtual Race. Unsure the fate of future races at this point.- Grand Floridian Walkway from the Magic Kingdom is complete! So if you’re inclined, you can now walk from the park back to the Ticket & Transportation Centre as opposed to waiting for a monorail or ferry at the end of the night- Brittany is going to time how long the walk is from the Magic Kingdom to the Grand Floridian as well as all the way back to the TTC on her next trip in a couple of weeks and report back to us!- Brittany gives us a rundown on how reserving days at the parks works – for Annual Passholders vs. Regular Ticket Holders and Hotel Guests- There are still no Fastpasses being used, no Dining Plans available, and park hopping is supposed to be available again starting in January 2021- Still no opening date announced for Disneyland or Disney Cruise Line- Brittany gives a really great explainer of what Magical Journeys can do to help ANYONE plan their next Disney vacation, whether you’re a veteran expert or a newbie to Disney. She can handle Disneyland, WDW, Disney Cruise Line and MORE, and it doesn’t cost you a penny! (And NO, you won’t have to sit through any timeshare seminars!)- You can see Brittany’s videos on YouTube – just search for Brittany at Magical Journeys Travel!- If anyone has experience with WordPress, contact John because he could use some help with updating INTERCOT.com!
