As it was reported just two days ago, Comcast has officially stated that a new King Kong-themed attraction is coming to the Universal Orlando Resort. This shouldn't come as a surprise to our Readers as we have known for months that this would be the theme of the new Island of Adventure ride currently under construction (Orlando United forum member HTF originally broke the news).
Let's go back to the construction site to check the progress that has been done:

Be advised that Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park will be closed on Friday, February 27, 2015 due to forecasted low temperatures (upper 60s).
Disney’s Fantasia Gardens and Winter Summerland Miniature Golf Courses are expected to be open following normal business hours. As a reminder, Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park is currently closed for refurbishment. Continue to check back here on Orlando Theme Park News for any additional updates. 


It is hard to believe it, but this will be our very last photo-update covering the demolition of the Sorcerer's Hat, the former icon of Disney's Hollywood Studios.
While this section of the park's hub is expected to be behind walls for a few more weeks (a new stage is rumored to be coming to the former location of the hat, but don't worry, it will not obstruct again the view of the Chinese Theater), all of the visible parts of the hat have finally been taken down. Take a look!


Merlin Entertainments announced today that the company is partnering with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and The LEGO Group to bring a completely new 4D animated film based on the popular characters of The LEGO Movie, from Warner Bros. Pictures, Village Roadshow Pictures, and LEGO System A/S, to guests at LEGOLAND Parks (including the Florida location) and LEGOLAND Discovery Centers around the world later this year. 


A month ago, an authentic mask artisan began to be available at the Jackson Square Gifts and Desires store, located at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter. The artisan is part of an immersive merchandise pilot that will last for an unspecified amount of time (this test began January 30, 2015).
These New Orleans treasures, including mask necklaces and earrings, will be sold on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings only for the time being.
