Magic Kingdom guests soon will find additional breakfast options at Casey's Corner and the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor on Main Street and at Sleepy Hollow, just off the hub in Liberty Square. Casey's will croissant donuts, bagels, muffins, and a hash brown hot dog. The ice cream parlor will serve Mickey waffles, donuts, and cold cereal from Disney partner Kellogg's. If you want to mash up breakfast with the parlor's typical fare, go for the new donut sundae, which includes a donut topped your choice of ice cream, plus hot fudge, apple topping, peanut butter and chocolate chips, and whipped cream and a cherry. And Sleepy Hollow is adding an egg, ham, and tomato waffle sandwich to its breakfast menu. The new items will be available "in the coming weeks," according to Disney.
Universal Orlando announced last week that its new Race Through New York with Jimmy Fallon ride would offer return time tickets, available at kiosks and through the official Universal Orlando app. Well, it appears that Universal is not waiting until the Fallon ride's debut on April 6 to introduce its new "Virtual Line" service to Universal Studios Florida. A return time ticket option showed up today on Universal's app for Despicable Me Minion Mayhem. Just navigate to that ride's listing on the app, select your party size and return time, and you're booked. As of now, Minion Mayhem is the only Universal Orlando attraction offering the virtual queue.

Despicable ME loads into a pre-show and not the theater. This gives them time to fill as many seats as they can with whichever Guests available. It also lets them manage their queues by loading more from one or another into the pre-show.
Load up Express, Virtual, and Stand by in equal thirds.
Load half Express, a quarter Virtual Queue, and a quarter Stand-by.
Load a row of Express, empty the Virtual Queue into every row, and fill the last seats with Stand-by.
I plan on doing the Sea World Seven Seas food fest, with an annual pass I don't have to try to sample everything in one day and that spam dish from Polynesia does sound interesting.
