Summer Awakens at Walt Disney World!

Summer Awakens at Walt Disney World

No one can deny that this is a year of change for Walt Disney World and Disney Parks in general. Here in Florida, however, some of the biggest changes are well underway. While we still wait on an official timeline for the new lands coming to Hollywood Studios, this week saw a lot of official information coming out.

We tend to avoid news here because we can’t hope to keep up with some of the other site out there but with all of the new info that hit we felt it would be wrong to completely ignore it. So we decided to help consolidate everything that we learned. We broke down everything we learned by month and then, where available, specific day. Here, we have compile all the information we have about what, and when, to expect at Walt Disney World as they attempt to Awaken Summer!

Updating Walt Disney World

Nowadays it is pretty hard to miss the fact that Disney Parks are going through a bunch of updates and expansions. A lot of exciting new experiences are on their way and quite a few icons of a generation are also on their way out. There is no doubt that all of the new attractions will breathe a new life into their respective areas but there are still many areas that have been kind of forgotten. So today we’ll look at some areas that could use a lot of attention and would go a long way to updating Walt Disney World.

Future World – Day Tripping WDW

For many planning a Walt Disney World vacation, a single park visit can take up an entire day. But for some of us, that can be just part of our day. Whether you have a dining reservation, need to go cool off from the Florida heat, or have a flight to catch, sometimes you just want to fit in as much park magic as you can in a short day trip. Today, I’m going to discuss experiences and tips for Day Tripping to Epcot’s Future World!

Day Tripping Future World

Day Tripping Future World in Epcot

For a short day trip, Epcot can be quite wonderful. Because the park opens in sections, crowds tend to be a bit smaller to start the day. Also, there is currently only one ride in the World Showcase area, so you can knock out most (if not all) of the Future World rides by lunch! With the compact size of Future World, you could fit in quite a bit of magic before having to move on to your location. But if you’re not aware of some factors, your trip could be more frustrating than fun.

Standing In Long Lines – 11 Things To Do

Although we don’t wait in long lines very often, we realize that others will, especially if you can’t get a Fastpass+ for a ride with a notoriously long standby wait like Toy Story Midway Mania. Here are some things you can do to pass the time while standing in long lines.

Top 11 Things To Do While Standing In Line at Walt Disney World

  1. Take in the scenery. Many of the line waits have things to look at and interact with. For example, Under the Sea- Journey of the Little Mermaid has a tiny interactive crab that will follow you through the outside wait queue. Haunted Mansion has many tombstones to read. The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh has things to play around with in line, and Peter Pan has bedroom scenes set up in the inside standby area.

Figment – Dragons of Disney

Disney’s fifth dragon is a bit of a departure from the others. Though Madame Mim had one of the shortest spans of time on film, this next fellow has virtually no screentime whatsoever. And yet despite that, he’s become one of Disney’s most consistent performers over the last thirty-plus years and an icon of Walt Disney World. He is, of course, the lovable Figment.

There, Voila, You’ve Got A Figment

Towards the back of EPCOT Center’s Future World stands the Imagination Pavilion. Inside the original Journey Into Imagination ride back in 1983, a man known simply as the Dreamfinder sought to show audiences the power of our own creative sparks. To help guide us through this journey, he creates one of his favorites figments of imagination, mixing two tiny wings, big yellow eyes, horns of a steer, childish delight, and royal purple pigment. What we get is the fifth Disney Dragon.

Figment

For about sixteen years, Dreamfinder and Figment would have visitors humming along to their song “One Little Spark” and the purple dragon propelled into stardom. Our joyful, little Figment became a symbol of EPCOT Center. But he became a victim of progress in the late 90s.
