Walt Disney World Updates 14th January 2021

🟪BLIZZARD BEACH – As of December it was announced that Blizzard Beach will be reopening on 7th March 2021

🟪EARLY THEME PARK ENTRY – Early Theme Park Entry is to replace Extra Magic Hours. With Early Theme Park Entry, both Disney and their partner Hotel guests will be able to enter ANY PARK EVERY DAY 30 minutes early. This will be introduced later this year.

This is from Disney

Early Theme Park Entry: We know how much guests enjoy extra park time, so coming later this year as part of our 50th anniversary celebration, Disney Resort hotel guests and guests of other select hotels will be able to enjoy more fun with 30-minute early entry to ANY theme park, EVERY day. It’ll be a great way to get a jump start on your Disney day, no matter the day! As a reminder, the Extra Magic Hours benefit was suspended when Walt Disney World Resort reopened last summer, and as we continue to manage attendance with health and safety top of mind, Extra Magic Hours will not return. The new early theme park entry benefit helps us better spread visitation across all four theme parks, while providing added flexibility by giving guests extra early park time on each day of their vacation and in the park of their choosing. Please note that guests need valid admission and a park reservation made via the Disney Park Pass system to enter a theme park.

🟪TOMORROWLAND TRANSIT AUTHORITY (TTA) – The TTA has been seen up and running. Currently without Cast Members or Guests, but we are thinking this is a sign that it will be open to guests soon after being closed from before the Pandemic early in 2020.

🟪DISNEYS MAGICAL EXPRESS (DME) – The DME airport service is set to come to an end in 2022. Luckily the company Mears have stated they will continue the route, but sadly is won’t be included in the price of your holiday. According to the official Disney Parks Blog announcement https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2021/01/a-look-ahead-at-walt-disney-world-resort/

Vacationers have more options to choose from than ever for transportation, including ride-share services that save time and offer more flexibility to go where they want, when they want. In light of this shift, when Disney Resort hotel bookings open for stays in 2022, we will no longer offer Disney’s Magical Express service for airport transportation, starting with arrivals Jan. 1, 2022. We will continue to operate the service for new and existing reservations made at Disney Resort hotels for arrivals throughout 2021. Additionally, complimentary transportation options – such as buses, monorails and Disney Skyliner – will continue to be available within Walt Disney World Resort for Disney Resort hotel guests, including to and from all four theme parks.

🟪RUMOURS – There is talk that the Mandalorian and Baby Yoda will be introduced into Galaxy’s Edge at Hollywood Studios – maybe as Characters that walk about the land and interact with Guests.

Success! You're on the list.
