News and Rumors 2/28/11 - 3/6/11

 Hi guys!  Hope you're doing well!  I wanted to apologize for not having an article earlier this week.  Things were absolutely CRAZY around here and I simply did not have time to post.  (I hardly had time to be on the internet!)'s the news and rumors for the week!


Magic Kingdom
  • It didn't take long to figure out what the permit that was filed for Skyway work will entail.  Apparently the first guess that was had was correct because Disney will indeed be taking the Fantasyland Skyway station and including new restrooms in this area.  In addition, Disney will be closing the restrooms by Peter Pan's Flight and using this area to help create a larger, NextGen Queue for Peter Pan.
  • LeCellier is now a Signature Dining Establishment at Dinner. This will require 2 Table Service credits for dinner, but lunch will remain 1 Table Service credit.  To check how the menus were affected, click here for dinner and here for lunch.

Disney's Animal Kingdom

  • This park is now no longer offering Evening Extra Magic Hours.  No idea if this is a permanent change, but for the foreseeable future, Evening Extra Magic Hours are not scheduled.  Morning Extra Magic Hours are still listed on the schedule for this park. 

General WDW News
  • The store, Mickey's Groove will close April 2nd.  In it's place, the Harley Davidson store will relocate here, making for a bigger store in all by incorporating the former Little MissMatched store area too.

  • Haunted Mansion queue work could be done in as little as 3-4 weeks
  • The expected opening date for Town Square Theater is April 1st.
