Louise’s Lowdown On Park Refurbishments


Our Discovery Cove giveaway is 2 weeks in! We are loving reading all your favourite attractions! It seems Kraken has the hearts of the people! Don’t forgot to check out our Instagram to enter to bag yourself the chance of winning 4 Ultimate Dolphin Swim Discovery Cove tickets!

This week is refurb week and all about re charging the batteries – which if your like me you turn up to day 1 at the parks with a flat battery where you forgot to put your phone on charge the night before! Epic fail!

We have been going through a semi quiet season for the parks, so this is when a lot of refurbishments take place on our favourite attractions – whilst it’s annoying it does keep the parks open all year round rather than being seasonal (except the waterparks!) We will also touch base on some new things coming for 2023/2024!

Walt Disney World

This week gave us the best thrills with the announcement of Disney 100 celebrations are set to hit this fall with Epcot being the primary host! The soft opening of Tron! If you managed to bag yourself a lightening lane – I want to hear all about it! We have some meet and greet news which some have been begging for… Be ready to greet Moana, Figment and Mirabel this year!
