Though this was a big week at Disneyland with the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, there was some news at Walt Disney World you may have missed, including new information on an upcoming character experience, the re-opening of a popular Disney's Hollywood Studios eatery and more information about what's coming next for Epcot! 

Outside Walt Disney World, SeaWorld teases a new roller coaster and Busch Gardens offers a June freebie for passholders!

2. ABC Commissary reopens after refurbishment 

ABC Commissary

The ABC Commissary has reopened this week after a brief refurbishment that brought new decor, furnishings, and self-serve beverage stations to this dining location.In addition, guests can make reservations via My Disney Experience for dinner at this location, which now offers a "fast-casual" experience where guests can order at the counter and then have a seat while their order is prepared and then delivered to them.

3. Leave a Legacy monuments now half gone

Construction walls went up around the Leave a Legacy monuments several weeks ago as work began on the new Epcot entrance design, and now it looks like over half the concrete slabs that were a part of this project are now gone, which means we're likely looking at only a week or two before all traces of Leave a Legacy are gone from the front of the park.
