Disney Parks ‘InsidEARS’ Website Now Live as Beta Site

Disney Parks InsidEARSFor several months — over a year in fact — we have been talking about a new Disney Parks and Resorts program titled the ‘Disney Parks InsidEARS.’ Although the anticipation has been high, a recent announcement on the official Disney Parks blog did hint at a name change for the Walt Disney World Moms Panel, a possibility we did speculate on in the first article.

Today, we are pleased to announce that we have discovered that the official ‘Disney Parks InsidEARS’ website has gone live. Currently there appears to be no movement on the Facebook and Twitter accounts (assuming they are even legitimate), although the InsidEARS website does mention them as specific locations one could find an InsidEAR.

Report: Obama to Visit Walt Disney World Thursday (Updated)

Recently the White House confirmed that President Barack Obama would be visiting Orlando this upcoming Thursday, January 19, 2012, to speak on the economy. All was quiet on the rumor fronts until today when a flurry of entertainment and operational changes found their way to the internet this evening, leading many to assume it meant the President would be visiting Mickey Mouse when in town.

Among the changes are evening extra magic hours being offered at Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, but not at the Magic Kingdom. In addition, Disney’s Hollywood Studios will feature a special fireworks display at 7 pm titled ‘Rock the Night!’ All of this, it is suggested, is to drive guest traffic away from ‘the event.’

WDW Refurbs: Dumbo Re-Opening Delayed Until End of March (Updated)

Some unfortunate news comes way of the official Walt Disney World Resort website today as it notes that the re-opening of Dumbo has been postponed from its original re-opening date of February 18 until March 12 March 31, 2012. The news is unexpected as construction has wasted no time in dismantling the attraction from its current location behind Cinderella Castle to its new location at the Storybook Circus area of the New Fantasyland Expansion, in the area formerly occupied by Mickey’s Toontown Fair.
