A New Magical Castle – DISNEY Reporter

Welcome to this week’s edition of the DISNEY Reporter. Each week we share the top five Disney and geek headlines. This week there are a lot of fun things to cover.

At the Disneyland Resort, Buena Vista Street is now open as an expansion of the Downtown Disney District. This comes as the parks continue to remain closed. The DAPS MAGIC was on-site opening day to cover this reopening of Buena Vista Street.

Hong Kong Disneyland is celebrating its 15th anniversary. Part of the celebration is the official unveiling of the Castle of Magical Dreams. DAPS MAGIC has tons of photos, video, and factoids about this new iteration of Hong Kong Disneyland’s castle.

Josh D’Amaro also provided updates about the future of Disney Parks this week. The Chairman of Disney Parks, Experience and Products provided updates earlier this week about where various projects are and are going at all of the Disney Parks around the globe!

EPCOT is one park that is getting quite a few updates. One of these enhancements is the nighttime spectacular Harmonious. This show will utilize many different special effects and some of them will remain in the World Showcase Lagoon during the day! This will provide a new fountain icon in the middle of the lagoon.

Finally, Park Hopping is returning to the Walt Disney World Resort! Park Hopping will begin daily after 2:00 PM in January.

Those are the top Disney and geek headlines for the week. What story do you think is the biggest of the week? Share your thoughts and opinions in the comments below! We’ll see you in the parks!
