1. Miss Fortune Falls announced for Typhoon Lagoon
Although we've known about this new ride since June, Disney has finally confirmed that when Typhoon Lagoon returns from refurbishment early next year, there will be a new ride to experience at this park as well. Named Miss Fortune Falls, this new attraction will be a lengthy family raft ride that will tell the story of fictitious Captain Mary Oceaneer, a treasure-hunting heroine who got stranded at Typhoon Lagoon years ago by a rogue storm.
During this two-minute raft ride (the longest raft attraction in all of Walt Disney World) guests will embark on a journey through Captain Oceaneer’s past before plunging into a white-water adventure where they can see unique artifacts that Captain Mary Oceaneer collected on her many treasure hunts around the world.
2. Limited-time discount offered for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disney Springs
