Walt Disney World has announced that beginning in October 2016, a new live entertainment offering featuring The Muppets will be offered at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World. The event, which will occur multiple times per day, is titled ‘The Muppets Present … Great Moments in American History’ and will take place in the Liberty Square section of the park.

An unbeatable lineup of blockbuster attractions will debut at Walt Disney World Resort this year starting with the April 4 launch of a new live stage show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. On Earth Day, April 22, a sweeping immersive, animal-themed theatrical production, ‘Rivers of Light,’ will premiere as the first-ever nightly show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
The official Disney Parks blog today announced that Disney’s Frozen will find a permanent home at the Norway pavilion in Walt Disney World’s Epcot in the future, replacing Maelstrom, which had been in place since the pavilion was first added in 1988. According to the news, the new attraction ‘takes our guests to Arendelle and immerse them in many of their favorite moments and music from the film.’ Anna and Elsa, who currently offer a meet and greet at the Magic Kingdom after having started at the Norway pavilion, will resume meet and greets at the new attraction when it is constructed. As of now, there is no announced timeframe for Maelstrom’s closure and replacement.
Confirming an earlier report by Stitch Kingdom, although the game has not yet been officially announced by Disney Parks and Resorts, the iOS version of Disney’s ‘Mayhem at the Mansion’ is now available as a free download from the iTunes App Store.
As we previously pointed out, the idea behind the augmented reality game is to go to certain locations marked on the Magic Kingdom’s Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party event map, find one of the hitchhiking ghosts who have escaped from the Haunted Mansion and capture them using the ‘spectre collector’ in the app. Interactions can be saved and shared before returning the ghost to his rightful place back at the Haunted Mansion.
It was just a matter of time. With so much going on outside those walls that house 999 happy haunts for more than four decades, some of them are bound to get restless and seek some time away and now they’ve managed to do just that. And now, now it’s up to you, the foolish mortals, not only to find them, but to capture them — capture them and return them to the Haunted Mansion before it’s too late! And if you happen to grab a souvenir photo along the way, all the better.

Although the Walt Disney World Resort differs in its philosophy for entertaining guests than its west coast counterpart, Disneyland — as the latter relies far more heavily on locals and keeping them amused — the Magic Kingdom’s nighttime fireworks program remained mostly unchanged for over a decade. Conversely, within that same time period, Disneyland has had three different shows debut. In other words, it may just be time for ‘Wishes’ to be retired.
While rumors have circulated for about a year regarding a replacement for ‘Wishes’ in either 2015 or 2016, one of the strongest pieces of evidence may in fact be one of the least reliable: domain names.
Walt Disney World Resort has just released additional details surrounding its newest attraction at the Magic Kingdom, the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, which will have an official opening ceremony ceremony on May 2. A springtime opening is planned for the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, a rollicking family-style coaster and the crown jewel of New Fantasyland. Walt Disney World Resort guests will be treated to an exciting, musical ride into the mine ‘where a million diamonds shine’ as the lovable world of Sleepy, Doc, Grumpy, Bashful, Sneezy, Happy and Dopey comes to life. One feature will be first-of-its-kind ride vehicles mounted in cradle-like pivots that allow the vehicles to swing back and forth during the ride. Adding to the fun, the journey will be accompanied by beloved music from the Disney film classic. On their adventure, riders pass by animated figures of Snow White, the Seven Dwarfs and playful forest critters.
