The Magic Kingdom Park will celebrate 45 years of operation Saturday, Oct. 1.
Since opening to Guests back in 1971, the Magic Kingdom has always been once of the most beloved theme parks on earth, thanks to all its family-friendly attractions, unique environments, and themed offerings that help in transporting Guests to different "worlds" ruled by imagination and fantasy. The Walt Disney World Resort has some small surprises in store for Guests visiting this weekend.

Today, SeaWorld Orlando announced its lineup of new attractions, shows, and events for 2017, delivering meaningful and fun vacation options for Guests.
“We look forward to introducing many new experiences to SeaWorld Orlando in 2017,” said Donnie Mills, President of SeaWorld's three Orlando parks. “We are constantly looking at ways to inspire Guests... Now, with so many new additions our Guests and pass members have more reasons to visit again and again.”

Starting from this week, portions of the area surrounding the South Point Road Pool at Disney's Old Key West Resort will be under construction for a few weeks (it's currently unknown when this project will be completed, but more information may be available in the near future). Work is scheduled to take place Monday through Friday, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. During this time, the pool will remain open to hotel Guests. Be sure to use caution when walking in this area.

Disney Early Morning Magic (the special event where Guests enjoy an in-park breakfast and first access to select rides and characters before park opening) will return to Disney’s Hollywood Studios on Saturdays, beginning October 8.
During this event, a limited number of Guests will be able to enjoy Star Tours – The Adventures Continue and Toy Story Mania! as well as meet Buzz Lightyear, Woody, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and receive a warm hug from Olaf.

The New York themed area of Universal Studios Florida is expanding. In the past, the themed facade of this section of the park stopped abruptly right next to the entrance of Twister. Since the closure of that attraction, work begun to bring the brand-new Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon attraction to life.
As part of this completely new addition, a new facade will soon completely hide the soundstage behind it. But there's even more to see around this great park.

Welcome to the second part of our new Universal Studios Florida photo-report. Be sure to also check out PART 1 of this update if you haven't already done so.
In the previous part, we checked out Production Central and the New York City area (which includes the future site of Race Through New York Staring Jimmy Fallon). Let us now continue our tour of the park to see what's new in the San Francisco and World Expo areas of the park. We hope you'll enjoy the pictures.
