What we are talking about: Disney and Universal Orlando News and Rumors
This is a beautiful story about a family who visited Walt Disney World on the opening day and returned 50 years later to recreate the image.
John says: I love this story about mom and son – I have a great photo I took with my mom on the main street on our first trip in 1976. I guess I need to start planning our own photo shoot here at five – when my mom does it be 99!
Now, during the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World, guests have the opportunity to thank the cast members. Now Disney has added the option to provide a praise of the cast to its My Disney Experience app. It’s true that it’s not perfect, but at least it’s one thing.
Becky says: It is important to say that these compliments, while easy to give, are not related to a specific person. Therefore, if you want to call a cast member, it is even better to do it in an “old” way so that they get credit for it.
Joe also agrees: Unfortunately, it lacks real utility. You can specify a team member, only a general area. I can’t explain why, just choose a list. Do what I do: Save your names, locations, and hometowns in a Notes app and send an email after you return from vacation.
If you’re reading anything this week, read this Hollywood Reporter article about Bob Iger’s departure. This is really fascinating.
Joe says: I’ve read this and all I’ve thought about is that “Bob Chapek is worse at cheating and public relations.”
Bob had the thought I had when I saw this picture: The image makes him look like Lex Luthor or The Kingpin.
A spin-off of “WandaVision” starring Kathryn Hahn is being developed for Disney +. Kathryn Hahn would reprise the role of Agatha Harkness in the series. This is impressive news.
Becky agrees: If that happens, I am EVERYTHING. I will watch all the episodes. I will find information behind the scenes. I’m going to buy silly mashup t-shirts. Kathryn Hahn is a treasure.
Bob is also excited: Wait … it was Agatha all the time and now you say it’s Agatha once again? I am totally inside.
Last week we lost a Disney movie legend. Tommy Kirk died. He was in Old Yeller and Swiss Family Robinson, as well as other Disney movies.
Bob says: I’m old enough to remember seeing him at the Hardy Boys and I thought he was great.
It’s official. Shrek 4D will close at Universal Orlando Resort. Both he and the gift shop will close on January 10, 2022. Will you miss these attractions?
Joe has the best line: So nah nah nah. So nah nah nah. They, they, they. Bye.
