1. After Hours Boo Bash ticket prices revealed
Though this fall's Disney After Hours Boo Bash will have fewer activities than the former Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party it looks like Disney will still be treating this event as a premium experience with ticket prices starting at $129 – $139, plus tax for August and September nights, $159 – $169, plus tax for October nights, and $199, plus tax for Halloween. This price includes complimentary snacks and ice cream novelties, as well as after hours access to the Magic Kingdom. You can read more about this event here.
2. Parks pass availability refreshed due to increased capacity
While Walt Disney World has not confirmed specific numbers, we do know that the resort has been raising capacity as the effects from the COVID-19 Pandemic ease in the United States. And now it looks like those who have been unable to score a Disney Parks Pass for their park of choice may finally be able to get into their park of choice as Parks Pass availability has once again been refreshed for the summer.

3. Canada Far and Wide closing in June
Though it has only been open since early 2020, it looks like Canada Far and Wide at Epcot will be closed indefinitely beginning June 27 2021. Some have speculated that this circle-vision film is being closed to potentially make space for the upcoming EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival, but nothing has been confirmed yet about why this closure is happening, and when (or if) this attraction might return.
