1. Space 220 restaurant delayed until 2020

Though it was originally slated to open this year, with only a few weeks to go and no opening date announced, many were wondering if there had been a delay with the opening of this location, and now a recent job posting by Patina Restaurant Group seems to confirm this suspicion. According to the job posting, this new location will open in early 2020, potentially in February.  the operator of the upcoming Space 220 restaurant at Epcot, suggests an opening of the new restaurant in early 2020.

2. Magic Kingdom's Early Morning Magic gets a Cinderella plus-up


Disney is adding some extra fun to the Magic Kingdom's Early Morning Magic upcharge for eight event dates from February 11, 2020 through March 3, 2020. On these special dates, this early morning event (which includes a buffet breakfast and pre-park opening access to Fantasyland attractions like the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Peter Pan's Flight and the Princess Fairytale Hall) will include special enhancements themed to the film Cinderella. 

In addition to special Cinderella themed breakfast menu items, guests may see some of their favorite characters from this film like as Suzy, Perla, Fairy Godmother, Drizella and Anastasia, and Prince Charming popping in to celebrate this special occasion.

3. Living With the Land gets holiday overlay

Epcot is celebrating the holiday season in Future World with the debut of a new holiday overlay: Living with the Land: Merry and Bright Nights. This new evenings-only offering allows guests to experience this attraction with an overlay of holiday lights and decorations in the greenhouse section of this Epcot favorite. Because of the seasonal nature of this attraction, Living With the Land will be extending its operating hours and will now be open until park close from now through the end of the year. 

4. Jock Lindsey's "Holiday" Bar overlay coming this week

And speaking of holiday overlays, it looks like, Disney Springs watering hole Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar will be transforming into Jock Lindsey's Holiday Bar on Monday, November 25th. Though we don't exactly know what this entails, we'd guess some holiday decorations, specialty drinks and music will be on offer during this seasonal overlay.
