This provides an opportunity to remind people that the number-one safety danger in theme parks actually is the weather. Heat and sun send more people to the first-aid center at theme parks than any other source of illness or injury. So please take a moment to read our theme park safety tips when you're sitting in the shade or air conditioning and helping yourself to a drink of water tomorrow. If you're out in the parks, stay out of the heat as much as you can. When it's 100 at Disneyland, if you don't have the words to the Tiki room show memorized by the end of your visit, you're not doing it right. (Remember, they'll let you take your Dole Whip floats into the theater!)
In other news from the Disneyland Resort:
Disneyland's now using the return-time ticket system for its Anna and Elsa meet-and-greet that the Magic Kingdom was testing earlier this year. That means no stand-by wait for the Frozen stars — instead, you'll pick up a return-time card and come back then for your photo-and-autograph op.
The 4D "Magic Eye Theater" in Tomorrowland appears to be turning into Disney's sneak-peek theater, as the park has announced plans to show previews of Big Hero 6 in the theater, starting September 26. Over the summer, the theater was showing previews for Guardians of the Galaxy. Hey, anything to keep Captain EO from returning.
Last week, we wrote about/mourned the loss of the flatbread pizzas at the Boardwalk in Disney California Adventure. This week, the menu changes continue — this time at Flo's V8 Cafe in Cars Land. Off the menu are the sliced roast beef, pork, and turkey breast platters, replaced by a rotisserie chicken, turkey dip sandwich, roast beef & cheddar sandwich, and barbecue ribs. I guess Disney figures it will sell more if they put more stuff on buns? Anyway, the citrus turkey salad and veggie tater bake survive.Tweet
Hint: Target sells an Elsa costume for $20. It isn't he higher quality costume usually sold at the Disney Stores or World of Disney at DD, but then again, you can't buy them there anyways.

I use to love Disney World, but between not putting in E tickets, my Disney experience (ie fastpass plus), and all those stupid as heck add ons, it's just not worth the money to go to Disney World. Disneyland maybe, but for that price (I'm from Chicago), I can just wait another year and go to Disneyland Tokyo.
Great job Universal. You've got my money for at least the next five to seven years.
