Disney enchantment

This week at Walt Disney World, EPCOT gets ready to soft open its newest attraction with previews in the coming weeks, new information is released about the upcoming 50th anniversary nighttime spectaculars, plus mask mandates return to Disney's theme parks. 

Outside Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando Resort adds Express service to one of its newest attractions, no masks at Universal and SeaWorld, plus new details are revealed about the new theme park opening in central Florida in 2022!

Walt Disney World may be waiting until its 50th anniversary to officially debut the new Remy's Ratatouille Adventure attraction at EPCOT, but it looks like Cast Members and potentially annual passholders as well will be able to get a sneak peek at this attraction soon, as Disney has announced that previews for this new ride will start later this month. No details have been made immediately available, but we'll share them when they are. 

2. Masks are now required at Walt Disney World for all guests in indoor spaces

In response to rising COVID-19 cases in the state of Florida Disney has changed its official mask policy, now stating that masks must now be worn by guests and Cast Members indoors regardless of vaccination status. This aligns with the recommendations from Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

3. Schedules for Disney Enchantment and Harmonious Released

We are exactly two months away from the debut of new nighttime spectaculars Disney Enchantment and Harmonious at the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT, respectively, and now Disney has updated their official times guide with schedule information about when guests can expect to catch these new shows. When they debut, on October 1 Disney Enchantment will have a 9:00 PM showtime, and EPCOT's Harmonious will have a 9:45 showtime. Several days later on October 5, Disney Enchantment will move to an earlier 8:00 PM time. You can check out Disney's official times guide here for more. 



I had a trip planned to WDW since they had lifted the mask mandate but I will not be going to WDW, I will be going to Universal. I hope every employee at WDW walks out and goes straight to an attorney since they are being forced to take a shot that could kill or paralyze them. This is supposed to be a Free Country!!!
