The Latest Disney World News
- The last day to see the Main Street Electrical parade roll through Magic Kingdom will be October 9th before it is shipped off to Disneyland for an unspecified “limited engagement” in early 2017. An replacement has not been officially announced yet.
- The Epcot International Food and Wine Festival is now in full swing! Be sure to watch the Pixie Dust Daily Facebook page for some delicious pictures this weekend. If you’re planning on visiting the Festival, you can find the Eat to the Beat concert series lineup and dates here.
- Over at Magic Kingdom, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is running on select nights through October 31st. We put together an extensive article with all the details and tips to help you get the most out of this after hours event! You can find all of the helpful information here.
- In other Magic Kingdom news, it was announced that Stitch’s Great Escape will only be open during seasonal demand. I doubt anybody was too disappointed and we can only hope a replacement is in the works for the near future.
- The new Muppets Great Moments in American History show will premier in Magic Kingdom’s Liberty Square October 2nd. Disney Parks Blog has a few details about the show and we’ll post some video on the Facebook and Twitter accounts soon!
- The Rivers of Light water pageant at Animal Kingdom still does not have an official opening date, though rumors are swirling around that they are wrapping up practice soon. Keeping my fingers crossed that we’ll get to see it in October.
