Skyliner and Minnie Mouse Ride Hailing

Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, unveiled the companies plans to add two new forms of transportation to Walt Disney World.

First is the long rumored return of the gondolas, dubbed "Skyliner's," as a means of connecting  Disney’s Art of Animation, Pop Century and Caribbean Beach resorts and other locations with Disney’s Hollywood Studios and the International Gateway at Epcot.

These look EPIC and make me want to continue with Pop Century as my go-to for many years to come.

The next form of transportation is a Disneyfied ride hailing service, a la Lyft/Uber, that everyone outside of Disney seems to want to call Minnie Vans. You'll be able to call a customized Chevy Traverse decked out in the colors and patterns of our beloved Minnie Mouse to take you around the property for around $20. This is super tempting, especially at peak bus times.

The Minnie van service is now available at select resorts. No dates have been unveiled for the Skyliner's though construction has begun. 

Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway

Disney this weekend unveiled another new attraction for Disney's Hollywood Studios, Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway.

Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway, the first attraction ever to star Mickey Mouse, is headed to DHS and will replace the beloved, yet often polarizing Great Movie Ride (the only remaining opening day attraction).

The attraction will put you inside the wacky and unpredictable world of a Mickey Mouse Cartoon Short where you’re the star and anything can happen. This zany out-of-control adventure features surprising twists and turns, dazzling visual effects and mind-boggling transformations that happen before your very eyes. - Thomas Smith, Disney Parks Blog

What's incredibly revealing about this announcement, paired with all of the others about DHS, is that you are PART of the story, not observing it. When MGM Studios debuted, it was a movie set that you got to walk onto. Now, you're the star. Very interesting.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge First Look

This weekend, Disney unveiled the first detailed look at a scale model for the new lands coming to Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disneyland Resort.

The lands, which we now know are called Star War: Galaxy's Edge, are incredibly immersive and provide the biggest Star Wars fans with an opportunity to become part of the story for the very first time.

This is going to be EASILY the most detailed undertaking by WDI to date. [Hard] Hats off to them for the amazing work they are in the process of doing to allow us to live our dreams on the dark side.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge debuts in 2019

We're happy to pull back the curtain and give you the first detailed look at the model of this new land, which will be on display this weekend at the 2017 D23 Expo.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge

This weekend, Bob Chapel, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, unveiled the official name for what we have been referring to as Star Wars Land: Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.

You know, I never really gave much thought to the idea that it wasn't going to be called Star Wars Land (I mean, we have Adventureland, Tomorrowland, etc.) but with Disney announcing it's official name, I definitely understand why it needed one. Oh, and I love the name.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opens first in Disneyland followed by Walt Disney World in 2019.

Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, revealed the official name of the Star Wars-inspired lands that are currently under construction at the Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts, and shared details on the immersive experiences guests will be able to enjoy when the lands open in 2019!

'Through the Years Collection' to Debut at D23 Expo

The incredible Steven Miller reporting originally on Disney Parks Blog: Article Link

These merchandise collections will celebrate key milestones at Disney Parks, such as the Pirates of the Caribbean 50th Anniversary, Space Mountain 40th Anniversary, Epcot 35th Anniversary, and Star Tours 30th Anniversary.

Richard Terpstra, Graphic Designer with Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media Creative Group, and his team knocked it out of the park (no pun intended...) with these collections.

Our home office already has a lot of Disney memorabilia in it but if I can get my hands on the EPCOT poster, pin or shirt with the Dreamfinder and Figment trust me I will add it to my collection with no hesitation.

If you're headed to D23 this year, make sure to check out these awesome collections while you're there.
