INTERCOT Community Raises $1000 to Benefit ThyCa and Thyroid Cancer Awareness!

This year’s #runICOT event was a huge success and the final tally is in. INTERCOT.com raised a total of $941.31, a number that sounded a little Goofy... yes, a Disney pun. So, John (as he promised he would in the INTERCOT Insider Podcast) kicked in the final share to bring the total to an even $1000 donation to THYCA. At this point, there’s only one thing left to ask. ARE YOU IN FOR #runICOT 2016?

Confirmed: Adventureland's New Restaurant

The new restaurant (formerly Adventureland Verandah), will be tentatively be called the “Skipper’s Cantina”, themed around the Jungle Cruise attraction. The rumored back story: Seems the skippers are not making enough money driving the boats and need to open a restaurant for some extra cash. Current thought is that it will operate similar to "Be Our Guest" in that it may be counter service for lunch and table service for dinner. Disney's goal is to open in November, 2015.

Disney's Hollywood Studios Changing Names Again

During an annual shareholders meeting today, Disney CEO Bob Iger hinted a name change was coming to Disney's Hollywood Studios (formerly Disney MGM Studios)... again. "Now we can announce that. It's not been announced right? We'll announce that we're changing the name but we won't announce what we're changing it to." Iger stated. With changes in store rumored to expand on both the Pixar and Star Wars franchises, it's not surprising, however no further comment was made during the meeting.
