Walt Disney World using drones?

News is that Walt Disney World will be using drones for their new holiday show at Disney Springs. They just recently got permission from FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) to be able to fly drones around the parks.

Disney has said that they have permission from now till November 2020 to be able to have drones fly around the Disney parks in Florida and California. According to the FAA the waiver can be cancelled at any time and that Disney has to have drone operators who have their pilot certificates and they are allowing the aircraft to be flown at night.

The Haunted Mansion Holiday has now arrived at the Disneyland Resort. With the arrival of the layover comes a new gingerbread house and a new character. Sally has now arrived in the graveyard scene and as the gingerbread house. In past years of the layover Sally has only been featured in the hallway to Doombuggies as one of the portraits and at the very end as the guests are leaving the ride telling Sandy Claws to hurry back.

So welcome Sally to the Haunted Mansion Holiday.

Frozen Fever has hit again at Disneyland.

December of 2015 we saw the Aladdin show at the Hyperion Theater close for the last time. The show ran for 13 years. Since December they have been gearing up for the Frozen show that will replace Aladdin. There have been very much mixed reviews about the Frozen show to people who are very excited to see the show to those that just wishes that Disney would just "Let it go."

Starting today, May 27,2016, Frozen has opened it's doors for guests who want to know what has replaced the Aladdin show. The new show brings the audiences into the world of Frozen and show the journey of Anna and Elsa. Director Liesl Tommy, who has been nominated for a Tony Award, brings elaborate costumes and sets, cast and crew of more then 200 people, six musical numbers and there will be a 2,200 square foot video wall.

On May 31st the House of Blues will be closing their doors at the Disneyland Resort's Downtown Disney to be moving to Anaheim GardenWalk which is a much bigger property then they had at Downtown Disney.

Anaheim GardenWalk has been struggling with attendance and believes that adding the House of Blues and a Latin dance club that they will be bringing the people that they need to make the property worth their wild.

From May 31st to when the new property opens up the 300 employees will be laid off. They will all be brought back as employees at the Anaheim GardenWalk location.
