Disney World Just Got More Fun With New Wine Slushies!!

New Wine Slushies from Disney Spring

Who said Disney World was only fun for children?! A recent announcement by the Disney’s restaurant Amorette’s Patisserie located in Disney Springs is going to make your trip to Disney World a whole lot more fun!! Disney’s restaurant is now serving strawberry wine slushies!

It is a fact that Florida’s sun can be very difficult to endure during hot clear days and if you add the humid heat to the crowds that you have to maneuver through during the day, you’d certainly feel like a chilled refreshing drink and a glass of wine would help sooth your day! Well, Disney is known as the place where wishes come true and they take it seriously. Disney has indeed heard the wishes of thousands of mom’s (and all legal adults) visiting the parks every day and has decided to make it a bit more fun for them too.

The slushies are more of a wine cocktail than just chilled wine as you will be able to get a strawberry wine slushie (with red wine) or a mango slushie (with white wine)! These refreshing and tasty drink will lighten your day before you start queuing for a popular attraction. Each slushie costs $8, which isn’t so bad when you’re roasting under the sun!

This is obviously an adult-only drink to be consumed within reason!!

Guardians of the Galaxy: The New Epcot Attraction

Epcot Guardians of the Galaxy Attraction

Epcot is about to undergo major changes. Indeed, Disney World recently announced that the old “Universe of Energy” is soon to be replaced by the a brand new “The Guardians of the Galaxy” attraction. This is the first ever Marvel-themed attraction to come to Disney World Florida! Epcot will host our favorite Guardians of the Galaxy characters who will bring a whole new dimension of fun and games to the ageing park.

The brand new attraction will be an E-ticket attraction and is likely to feature ‘Groot’ and ‘Rocket’ as Disney revealed to the D23 Expo guests. The idea is to re-energize Epcot with some Disney “wow” factor, and what better way to inspire young and old generations with the funny and adventurous movie “The Guardians of the Galaxy”?

The many changes announced by Disney this year for its Orlando parks are taking a distinct ‘out-of-this-world’ path which will take guests on many space adventures, and Epcot is not being left behind! The reason to “The Guardians of the Galaxy” coming to Epcot is directly linked to Peter Quill (aka Star Lord in the movie) visiting Epcot when he was a child.

The current “Universe of Energy” attraction has already been closed since earlier this August and guests who are eager to meet ‘Groot’ are likely to have to wait a few years before the attraction opens to the public! In the meantime we will follow the advancements of this new attraction very closely in the future!

Epcot Space restaurant D23 Expo

Disney World recently announced that the famous theme park will undergo a bunch of upgrades as part of its 35th anniversary! Disney came up with a new visionary dining concept for guests, sending them out of this world for a dinner under the stars.
Epcot restaurants are famous for being completely original and immersing guests into different culinary worlds, but this one will literally send them into space! The new restaurant will be established next to the “Mission Space” attraction, a NASA-style simulator, which will re-open next summer.

Disney presented the space restaurant design during the D23 Expo this year, which showed guests dining in a space station floating above Earth. Disney sets the standards high using digital technology to make the illusion possible! Guests will even be able to interact with astronauts floating on the outside of the station.

Menu is yet to be established but one can only imagine the futuristic forms, colors and tastes the delicious space food will take! As for the name of this new space diner, it is yet to be announced!

New Disney Transportation Project Will Lift You Up!

Disney Skyliner

It has been made official that Disney is preparing for the construction of its new transportation project: Disney Skyliner!

This amazing new transportation will connect hotels and parks from Epcot International Gateway to Hollywood Studio via the Art of Animation, Pop Century and Caribbean Beach resorts. These flying gondolas will revolutionize the transportation systems at Disney World. Each gondola will be able to accommodate 10 passengers and will feature some of your favorite Disney characters! Passengers will be able to experience Disney from above, giving them a stunning view of the parks and attractions. Unlike the previous Skyway ride that used to link Magic Kingdom’s Fantasy Land to Tomorrowland and which closed in 1999 after a tragic accident, these brand new gondolas will be completely enclosed, therefore ensuring everyone stays inside while being transported in the air!

Disney World is hoping to set an example for the whole of the United States with this new mode of transport which could revolutionize transportation in American cities!

Another transportation system is also about to come to Disney World, and will surely contribute to making your holiday at Disney World a unique experience: Minnie Mouse themed vans! This new point-to-point service will take guests anywhere they would like to go around Disney World Resort in a classic styled Minnie Mouse decorated car!!

No date was set for the opening of either of these two new transportation systems yet, but both the projects are well on their way.
