The 10 Big Updates From Walt Disney World (And Beyond) This Week (February 15-21)

7. Mako vehicles unveiled 

Mako Car Reveal

Talk about a special delivery! Today we unveiled the custom-built, lead Mako car. Take a behind-the-scenes look below! #NothingFaster

Posted by SeaWorld on Tuesday, February 16, 2016

This week, SeaWorld Orlando gave fans a first look at Mako’s custom-built lead car. SeaWorld’s animal experts and ride engineers collaborated to make a first-of-its kind roller coaster vehicle that was not only functional, but also inspired by the look and physiology of an actual Mako shark. You can learn more about this new car (and how it actually resembles a shark!) in the video above.

8. Halloween Horror Nights packages unveiled 

Though Halloween season is still quite a ways off, guests who are looking to get a jump on their fall planning can now book special Halloween Horror Nights vacation packages that includes a three night stay at Loews Sapphire Falls Resort, a two day park-to-park Universal Orlando Resort ticket, one night’s admission to Halloween Horror Nights and a $150 hotel dining credit. You can learn more about this package deal here.

For those who aren’t looking for a package deal, Universal has also made Halloween Horror Nights Add-On tickets now available for purchase. This ticket allows guests to add admission to Halloween Horror Nights (Sunday-Friday) to the purchase of a regular Universal Orlando Resort theme park ticket for $59.

Tickets for just the Halloween Horror Nights event will go on sale later this year.
