News Bites and Weekly Update – August 16

Another busy week for the Dad For Disney blog.  I’m going to close the week with a couple of news bites and some goings on at the blog for the next 10 days.

First, the news bites:

  • The Frozen Sing Along at Hollywood Studios is now a Fastpass+ attraction for the rest of its run.  The attraction is scheduled to end on September 28.
  • The closure date of the American Idol Experience has been moved up from January 2015.  The attraction’s last day is now scheduled for August 30, 2014.

The next 10 days are going to be travel filled days for me.  I’ll be going to Hershey and Philadelphia for my annual dad-daughter road trip.  After we return from Philadelphia, my wife and I will be traveling to Walt Disney World for the Villains Unleashed party.  As a result, I will be blogging less (this is a one man show) but tweeting more.  So, the best way to stay up to date, especially during the Villains Unleashed party, is to follow me on twitter: @DadForDisney.

Here’s a recap of this week’s blog articles:

Today marks the three-month anniversary for the Dad For Disney blog and wanted to thank everyone for taking the time to join the Facebook group, follow me on Twitter, and read the blog.  Without your support, this blog would not be possible.

On to a bit of news.  Disney announced, this week, that the EPCOT After Hours Wind Down has been extended until November 9th.  This takes the event through the entire Food and Wine Festival.  The event costs only $35 and provides guests the opportunity to enjoy snacks and beverages at one of four restaurant lounges: Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar in Italy, La Cava del Tequila in Mexico, Spice Road Table in Morocco, and Rose and Crown in the United Kingdom.  I will be attending this event at the end of the month.  I will be posting a review of this event on the blog when I return.
