kick-off of Summer with cook-outs and BBQ's, this edition of the Insider is
sizzling with the latest hot news from the Walt Disney World resort. From
attraction upgrades, to the return of a classic show, to a brand new resort
hotel; INTERCOT.com has been buzzing with news and in this edition we
round-up these important news bytes. It's Insider Time!
Returns to Epcot>>
The classic musical spectacular, which
thrilled Epcot guests from 1986–1994, is scheduled to return to Epcot on
July 2. The film’s return to the Imagination pavilion will provide new
audiences the opportunity to experience the original 3D production for the
very first time, as well as a nostalgic look back for longtime fans wanting
to see Jackson in a rare performance created for the big-screen. To make way
for the change, "Honey, I Shrunk The Audience" closed on May 9th.
<<Lotso Lands at the
Lotso, the new Teddy Bear character
from Toy Story 3, has arrived at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Lotso began
Meet & Greet appearances in the Magic of Disney Animation building and
joined the line-up of Pixar characters in the Pixar Block Party Bash parade
on May 9th. The new Lotso Meet & Greet, in the Magic of Disney Animation
post-show area, has replaced the location that was recently vacated by the
characters from UP!. Lotso is currently appearing intermittently from 10:30
am till 2:30 pm and from 3:45 pm till 6:00 pm daily. Lotso can bee seen in
the Pixar Block Party Bash daily at 3:00 pm.
Mania! Adds New Characters & Game>>
New characters from the
soon-to-be-released Disney - Pixar film “Toy Story 3” were added to the
ride-game attraction Toy Story Mania! at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on May
23rd. At “Rex and Trixie’s Dino Darts,” the new characters will invite
riders to shoot their virtual darts at all-new balloon targets in a primeval
world promising volcanic levels of excitement. Game players are welcomed by
Rex (the nervous Tyrannosaurus rex) and his new friend Trixie (a blue
Triceratops and one of the toy characters from the new film) cheering them
on. The new game (it replaces “Bo Peep’s Baaa-loon Pop”) turns up the fun
with more hidden surprises. The “Hamm & Eggs” game will now be hosted by
Hamm and Buttercup (a toy unicorn with heart-shaped nostrils). In the prize
scene, Trixie, Buttercup, Dolly (a doll), Mr. Pricklepants (a
lederhosen-clad hedgehog) and one other surprise – all from “Toy Story 3” –
will appear with Woody and Jessie.
<<Power Rangers Set to
Leave the Studios>>
The long running Power Rangers Meet
and Greet at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will come to an end later this

selling the rights to the Power Rangers back to Haim Saban. The Meet and
Greet in the Streets of America section of the park is currently planned to
cease operation on August 7, 2010. The Power Rangers are currently making
Meet & Greet Appearances at 10:30 am, 11:30am, 12:30 pm, 4:30 pm and,
5:30pm. If you visit between now and August 7th, check with Guest Services
