The 10 BIG Updates From Walt Disney World (and Beyond) This Week (March 13-19 2017)By Amanda Kondolojy, Sunday, March 19, 2017 04:11
This week at Walt Disney World, two new character experiences are announced for Disney's Hollywood Studios, a special PhotoPass feature is extended, plus Disney Springs gets a new occupant and a limited-time event.
Outside Walt Disney World, SeaWorld Orlando extends its newest limited-time event, plus the end is nigh for Blue Horizons.
1. Daisy now joining Donald Duck at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Though Donald Duck has been meeting guests by himself at the front of Disney’s Hollywood Studios since late last year, it looks like this character is going to be joined by his pal Daisy, effective immediately. However, in an interesting change, it looks like these characters will not be meeting together, as there are now two different lines in front of the Sid Cahuenga’s building at this park.
2. The Dress Shop coming to Disney Springs at the end of the month
A delightful new apparel location inside the Marketplace Co-Op known as The Dress Shop will be opening later this month on March 31st. Clothes sold inside this new pop-up shop will be uniquely designed with a special Disney flair, drawing inspiration from characters, attractions and more. Early designs feature Minnie Mouse, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, The Enchanted Tiki Room, It’s a Small World, and more.
3. Date announced for BB-8 character meet and greet at Disney's Hollywood Studios
It has been confirmed that the new BB-8 character experience will debut in just a few weeks on April 14 2017, beginning on the first Star Wars Galactic Nights event. Kylo Ren and Chewbacca, who are currently available for meet and greets, will continue to appear at the Star Wars Launch Bay alongside this new character.
