New Years At Disney World
Walt Disney World Resort ushers in 2004 with a dazzling display of entertainment, parades, fireworks, thrills and extended hours throughout the Vacation Kingdom. In the spirit of the "dropping ball" in Times Square, Epcot guests experience a special New Year's Eve Countdown Spectacular -- while both Epcot and Magic Kingdom also feature an earlier evening fireworks spectacular so that families with children can join in the revelry before they retire.

Wonders of Life Moving To Seasonal Operation - Room Rates Discounted for 2004

The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that the Walt Disney World Resort, anticipating the seasonal slowdown in tourism that begins right after New Year's Day, will slash rates at its new Pop Century Resort and its three All Star Resorts to a rock bottom $55 a night and will temporarily move its Wonders of Life pavilion at Epcot to "seasonal operation".  Is this the first step towards the "Horizonization" of the pavilion?

Magic of Disney Animation Tour Reopens - Only Ghosts Left...
Disney-MGM Studio's backstage tour of its animation facility reopened last month with a new tour featuring Mushu from the animated film Mulan, but there's one thing missing: Animators. Walt Disney Studios halted production in November on its long-troubled animated project, A Few Good Ghosts, raising questions about the future of the Orlando facility and its 258 artists. When INTERCOT staff members recently asked where the artists were, tour guides responded "they're taking a break in between productions". Disney is expected to announce "a more concrete plan" for the Orlando animation studio by January.

Pop Century Comes on December 14th

After being put on the back burner due to a variety of economic reasons, Disney’s Pop Century Resort (click here or on the logo at right for a resort map) is finally opening to the public on December 14th with Cast Member previews this week. An addition to its value resorts offerings, with rooms starting at $77 a night (depending up on the season), the Pop Century Resort is an amalgam of all of our childhood memories. From 45s (remember, those vinyl things with a big hole in the center that played music), to enormous Rubik’s Cubes and a towering Yo-Yo or two, Pop Century is bound to play a nostalgic string or two from your past. We hear it has a killer food-court too.
