This is the weekly news, rumors and refurbishments update for Walt Disney World for the week of April 12, 2015.

Here are the three biggest updates from around the resort for the past seven days

1. The Great Movie Ride is being repainted

With the removal of the Sorcerer Hat, The Great Movie Ride is now the center of attention at the end of Hollywood Blvd. Unfortunately the show building has been neglected for the past 14 years, with issues like peeling paint marring this once-grand icon. 

Fortunately, some much needed love is being brought back to the only original attraction left in the park. The roof of the facade is being painted and the original spires in front of the attraction (which were removed several years ago) are scheduled to make a return in the very near future.
