TWIDN: Feb15th-21st

The Walt Disney company is an ever-changing business. It seems like every day there is some type of news that comes from it. Whether its a new movie announcement, a ride that is being refurbished, of they are coming out with a new Mickey shaped treat! There is just always something going on. Sometimes its hard to keep up with it all. So I have decided to do a breif Friday weekly round-up of news called ‘This Week in Disney News’, or ‘TWIDN‘ for short. Now come and get your Disney News fix!

1. New Clip from Toy Story 4

Good Morning America premiered an exclusive clip from “Toy Story 4”! This new clip features Woody, Bo Peep, Jessie, Buzz, Slinky Dog, and Barbies trying to help RC who is outside stuck in the rain.

2. New Interface for Mobile Ordering on My Disney Experience App

This new interface looks a lot easier to navigate! This update features new photos of the food on the menu and new icons to help you sort through the menu.

7. New Play Pavilion Will Replace Wonders of Life at Epcot


Exciting things are coming to Epcot just in time for its 50th aniversery! This indoor pavilion will be unlike anything Disney has ever made before! I mean, look at that photo! This new Play Pavilion (the name is still in the works) will replace Wonders of Life. This pavilion will come alive with your favorite Disney characters, interactive and playful experiences, and hands-on activities!

8. New Epcot Park Entrance Announced


Epcot is going through a world of change! Coming soon, Epcot will have a new entrance that will be themed to the original park entrance. (probably to coincide with their upcoming 50th anniversary). As you can see from the photo above, the entrance will have new pathways, more greenery, and a newly reimagined fountain. Worried about what they will do with Leave A Legacy? Never fear! Disney will move it to an area just outside the park’s gateway.

So what do you think about TWIDN? Any story that you are excited about? Let us know in the comments down below!

I'm a lover of all things Disney! I have an adorable son named Andy (after Toy Story), and an amazing hubby named Aaron. For my family and I, Disney isn’t just a hobby or someplace we casually go when on vacation, it's a way of life. We try to go back 'Home' twice a year. My hope for this blog is to help families navigate their crazy, magical times through Disney and reach their Disney Dream!
