Due to the ever-increasing number of projects taking place inside the park, the OTPN Team has decided to start posting multiple photo-updates focusing on just one or two themed areas of Animal Kingdom to avoid posting too many photos at once, slowing down some devices. This evening, we will focus on Discovery Island, which is currently one of Animal Kingdom's busiest themed lands, thanks to the large amount of work taking place in this particular area.

John, Paul, Ringo, and George continue the major British Invasion at Madame Tussauds Orlando this summer as their wax figures descend upon Florida and take their place, for a limited time only, inside the famed wax attraction on International Drive. The figures of the Fab Four are set in a pose that pays tribute to the 1969 Abbey Road album cover, which captured all four members walking across a zebra crossing (or crosswalk) outside of Abbey Road Studios. 

Another important test will take place at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on August 5-6, 2015 for all park Guests holding a FastPass+ entitlement for Fantasmic!

This temporary procedure will apply to all parties, no matter their size. Continue reading for additional details and information about this test.

The very ambitious project that includes a vertical mall and Orlando's first 7-star hotel has slightly changed. As some of our Readers will remember, the brand-new iSquare Mall and Hotel was announced back in 2014, and it is expected to include a massive 7-star hotel with a panoramic tower, a rotating restaurant, an indoor mall, and much more. Just recently, though, many news outlets reported that some changes had to be made for the project to be approved by the county.

Starting November 8, Guests can enjoy Character dining at the Garden Grill restaurant all day long.

For breakfast, look for favorites such as biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, crispy bacon, and more. At lunch, all of the selections present on the diner menu will be available.
