It’s about time for a hearty helping of news nuggets. As you are probably aware, new Star Wars offerings opened at The Studios this week, but since Star Wars is so important (both to Disney, and to Elyssa and me), I will be saving a recap of that coverage for another post.
On to the nuggets!
- The Lumberjack Show won’t be returning to the Canadian Pavilion. – Off Kilter was so popular, that I think whatever replaced them had to be a home run. Though I didn’t mind this show, I don’t think it was as outstanding as it needed to be. I assume the next act will have a bit of an easier time.
- International holiday food items available at World Showcase – The Food & Wine festival might be over, but there are still some special treats available at Epcot this holiday season as part of Holidays Around the World at Epcot.
- Acoustic Group “Quickstep” Debuts in the United Kingdom Pavilion at Epcot – Huh. This seems like something you’d find in Portland or Austin, not Epcot. It’ll be interesting to see what people think. (Here’s a video from WDW Magic if you don’t want to wait to see them live.)
- Clown slide at the Boardwalk closed. – The big reason I’m posting this is so that people staying at the Boardwalk while the slide is closed know that they might be able to use Stormalong Bay.
- New “Grab-n-Go” Food and Beverage Option coming to Animal Kingdom “Thirsty River Bar and Trek Snacks” should open on or about December 12, and is located in former Expedition Everest Fastpass location.
- Enchanted Tales with Belle no longer part of evening extra magic hours. This makes sense. They only do a show if there’s a certain number of people, and I imagine that number is hardly ever reached late at night.
- Sum of All Thrills closed for Refurbishment until December 5 It’s a quick closure, but it helpful to know if you’re visiting Disney World this week.
We’ll close out with some links to the various Christmas decorations that are up around Disney World, including gingerbread sculptures at Contemporary, Mickey’s Village at the Yacht Club, and the famous gingerbread house at the Floridian.
