January 14, 2018

This was a week of new beginnings in Walt Disney World®! From restaurant openings to the first Disney Cruise Line® special sailings of the year, there is a lot to share with you about the happiest place on Earth. In case you missed it, here's what was announced this week across the world of Disney.

 

"Circle of Life: An Environmental Fable" in Epcot's The Land pavilion is permanently closing on February 3rd. 

 

There are three new Italian restaurants open in Disney Springs®! Maria & Enzo's and Enzo's Hideaway officially opened on January 4th. The Edison opened on December 31st. All three restaurants are open for walk-ins and reservations, though please check with your MousePros agent on hours of operation and dress code for The Edison.

If you've ever been to Disney Springs or Downtown Disney, you have likely been to The World of Disney, the most magical store at any park. Both the Walt Disney World and Disneyland locations are going to be reimagined started February 2018.

Both the 2018 Marvel Day at Sea and Star Wars Day at Sea debuted this week on Disney Cruise Line. We'll have more information for you about both of these special sailings later in the week. 

 

Though this next bit of news has not been officially confirmed by Disney Parks & Resorts, it has been reported by several related news outlets and is something to ask your MousePros Agent to confirm for you. Reports are saying that the Children's Activity Centers at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, and Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resorts are ceasing operations on August 1, 2018. Your MousePros Agent can confirm this news for you if it impacts your travel plans.
