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!
