Friday round-up: Building new fences, homes, and floating mountains
June 17, 2016, 5:08 PM · Disney builds its wall It appears that we are getting much more than new warning signs around waterways at the Walt Disney World Resort. After Disney confirmed yesterday that it would install new, more detailed warning signs around its waterways, today guests saw work crews installing fences around the Seven Seas Lagoon, to block people from entering the water at all.
The moves come in response to Tuesday night's fatal alligator attack at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, which claimed the life of a two-year-old boy.
Anna and Elsa move into their new home Also at Walt Disney World today, the new meet and greet for Anna and Else opened in Epcot. The Frozen sisters return to their Norway pavilion home in the new Royal Sommerhus, which should offer a much higher capacity (and shorter wait times) than their old home in the Magic Kingdom's Princess Fairytale Hall, not to mention their original home in the Norway pavilion's shops.
How can one meet and greet have higher capacity than another, you're asking? Through the magic of multiple greeting rooms. Which means, yes, (spoiler alert!) multiple princesses working at once. If you're curious, the MK's Princess Fairytale Hall has replaced Anna & Elsa with Rapunzel and a rotating princess of the day.
May the Force be with you... getting out of that parking lot Later tonight, the new Star Wars themed nighttime spectacular debuts at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular will employ fireworks, projection mapping as well as the beloved John Williams score. Update: And here's one of the fan videos of the show:
Getting psyched for Pandora Finally, an insider dropped us this picture of the floating mountains of Pandora, now under construction at the new World of Avatar land in Disney's Animal Kingdom.
