News & Rumors 6/28/10 - 7/4/10

News and Rumors are gathered from various different websites. All rumors are rumors and are to be taken as such.

  • Space Mountain is now the second attraction to offer their on-ride photos for Photopass. However, it appears to work just a little different than the version for Test Track. Now, you have 3 options if you want your on-ride photo. 1. Purchase the photo as a print. 2. Purchase the photo as a digital download from the Photopass site. 3. Purchase the photo as a digital file and combined with other bonus digital content on a Disney-themed USB drive. The charge is $24.95 for the USB Drive and the first ride photo. Additional photos can be added to the same USB drive as part of the same transaction for $9.95 per photo. The USB Drive will include the Guest's ride photo plus 7 extra professional stock photos of the Space Mountain attraction. Purchase must be made immediately after riding the attraction.
  • Captain EO is now showing in the former Honey I Shrunk the Audience theater.
  • If you are looking for a FastPass for The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, at least temporarily, you're going to need to get it from the Mickey's Philharmagic FastPass machines while work is being done in the current Winnie the Pooh area.
  • New entertainment options are being tested in the Pleasure Island area, including street performers and various other acts.
  • Disney has a new device that helps those who are blind experience the parks in a new way. For more in depth info, read here.

As an aside, thank you to all who listened to the Be Our Guest 12 Hour Live Show! Thanks to the generosity of Disney lovers, like yourself, we managed to raise over $1800 for Give Kids the World! We couldn't have done this without you all! So...a HUGE thank you!!!
