Watching Wishes With FastPass+

wishes-fastpass-plus-viewingWith the addition of FastPass+ came new options for using your FP selections.  One of these is Wishes. You can now reserve a spot for you and your party at Wishes!

New Dumbo at Disney World

New Dumbo at Walt Disney WorldOne of the new Dumbo rides is already open, then other is being tested.  But what's under the tent?  The Disney Parks Blog released two photos today! According to the Blog: This innovative queue area will completely redefine what it means for guests to prepare for a Disney attraction. Here’s how it will work: Guests arrive at Dumbo’s big top and receive a circus ticket pager that virtually holds their place and notifies them when it’s their turn to board the attraction.
