Disney moves to PhotoPass automation at select Walt Disney World character locations
A Disney spokesperson has confirmed that automated cameras will be installed at nine character greeting locations at Walt Disney World, replacing the Disney PhotoPass photographers once stationed there.
Beginning in early 2019, multiple cameras installed in these areas will capture memorable moments during character interactions. According to Disney, this will give guests the opportunity to choose from a wider variety of character photos than in the past.

These new cameras will be housed in themed boxes, in which the camera will use an AI software to take candids and posed character photos, just as a PhotoPass photographer would do. However, these cameras cannot move from their stationary position, so it will become an obligation of the characters and guests to make sure they’re in view of the camera’s lens.
Despite Disney PhotoPass cast members being phased out of these locations by next summer, they will continue to support over 100 other locations across all four parks and help take personalized photos for guests.
Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge rides have been named
The names of the two rides opening with Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland and Walt Disney World were finally revealed at D23’s Destination D: Celebrating Mickey Mouse event.The names of the two new rides are “Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run” (Millennium Falcon attraction) and “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance” (Battle Escape attraction).

On Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run, Hondo Ohnaka and Chewie borrow the Falcon and recruit guests to take on one of three unique roles in the cockpit. On Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, guests are captured by the First Order and will face off against Kylo Ren.

Kissimmee’s newly refurbished Old Town to re-open April 2019
With this new multi-million dollar renovation and expansion, Old Town’s classic charm is now bigger and better, yet still offers that authentic, all-American feel.

“This refurbishment has solidified Old Town’s reputation as one of Central Florida’s most popular ‘must-visit’ attractions,” said Thearon Scurlock, vice president and general manager of Old Town. “We are excited that Old Town has embarked on a new era in its history and welcome both locals and tourists to rediscover its simple pleasures and classic American fun.”

The refurbishment features 12,000-square-feet of added retail and restaurant space, including a variety of new shops and three new dining options: Froggers Grill & Bar (now open), Shoney’s Restaurant, and Bobby’s Garage Bar that will open in spring 2019.

The original area of the complex has been entirely renovated with the addition of a new 86-foot Ferris Wheel imported from Italy, as well as refurbished store interiors and storefronts, four new fountains, a new entrance sign, upgraded restrooms, property-wide LED lighting, a new sound system, a renovated event space, a new parking lot with 660 spaces, and valet parking on Fridays and Saturdays.

Old Town’s musical performances have been upgraded as well, and show frequency has been expanded to include Wednesdays, and Fridays – Sundays. Karaoke has been added to every Tuesday, free family movie night every Sunday, and a revamped Bike Night on Thursdays. The year-round haunted house will also operate as usual, and the Great Magic Hall will still offer multiple magic shows daily.

“The restoration of this iconic Orlando-area attraction is reinventing the Kissimmee landscape,” said Scurlock. “We are dedicated to preserving and resorting this classic venue while giving locals and visitors an entirely new experience built on years of tradition.”

Das Universal Studios Orlando Resort haben bislang noch nicht viele Details, zur kommenden neuen Harry Potter Achterbahn bekannt gegeben. Doch nun hat der Freizeitpark, aus dem Nichts, dass Eröffnungsdatum von „Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure“ bekannt gegeben. Die Achterbahn Neuheit wird am 13. Juni 2019 für die Parkbesucher geöffnet sein. Nach unseren Informationen aus Orlando, ich hatte Mailkontakt mit der dortigen Presseabteilung, soll es nach derzeitigem Stand ein Pre Opening geben. Da wir Ende Mai in diesem tollen Resort sind, hoffen wir Euch weitere News zu übermitteln.

Die Fahrt wird eine spannende Fahrt zu den magischen Kreaturen aus der Harry Potter Welt sein. Die Fahrt voraussichtliche rasante aber familienfreundliche Fahrt, geht durch den magischen Wald in dem Hagrid seine Hütte hat. Weitere Details möchten die Universal Studios Orlando im März bekannt geben.
