The 9 BIG Updates from Walt Disney World (And Beyond) This Week (June 24-30, 2019)

4. Aunt Polly's open this week for July 4th holiday

Magic Kingdom cult favorite dining location Aunt Polly's on Tom Sawyer Island will be open from now through to July 7 for lunch from 11am to 3pm for the Independence Day holiday crowds

Menu items will include Biscuit BBQ Sliders, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, and other picnic-style fare. 

5. Star Wars: March of the First Order to come to a close after next week


According to several sources the Star Wars:  March of the First Order parade will be wrapping up soon at Disney's Hollywood Studios and will have it's last day of operation on July 7, 2019. This entertainment offering has been around for several years and features Captain Phasma leading a group of First Order Stormtroopers from the Star Wars: Launch Bay to the Center Stage area of the park. Though this has not yet been confirmed by Disney, their official calendar does not list this this attraction past July 6th, and according to reliable sources, the removal of this entertainment offering is expected to be permanent. 

6. Primeval Whirl to remain closed until at least July 3

Several weeks ago on June 17, the Walt Disney World Resort released an advisory informing Guests that Primeval Whirl would be closed until further notice due to unspecified technical issues. And though we still don't know exactly what is happening with this attraction Disney has confirmed that this attraction will be closed through at least July 3, which means that while we could theoretically see this attraction reopen on July 4, there's no guarantee that will actually happen, as the July 3 date is a "best case" scenario right now. Guests with FastPass+ reservations for Primeval Whirl during this extended downtime will receive a replacement FastPass for an attraction of the same tier automatically in their My Disney Experience app.
