​This week at Walt Disney World, Disney blocks out short hotel reservations, Disney Genie+ launches (and gets a price hike!) plus Disney's next special event starts selling out. 

Outside Walt Disney World, Universal announces the Fear Factor Live stage will be closing for good plus SeaWorld Orlando announces some new park-exclusive Squishmellow toys!

Disney Very Merriest After Hours events on November 9 and 11 are now sold out. These are two of the least expensive nights available, priced at $169, with other nights priced between $189 - $249. You can check availability for other event nights here

2. Single night hotel stays currently unavailable at Walt Disney World through early December

Right now single-night bookings at Walt Disney World hotels are currently unavailable between now and December 5th. There is no specific reason given for the current unavailability but we would suspect that high guest levels are probably behind this current hotel room inventory shortage.

3. Disney Genie+ launches

Disney Genie and Genie+ launched this week and though some guests ran into technical issues, on the whole, the launch went fairly smoothly, with no widespread glitches or outages affecting these new offerings' first day of availability at Walt Disney World. In fact, it looks like a lot of guests are taking advantage of this service, as Disney Genie+ individual lightning lane attraction saw its first price hike this past weekend.
