To accommodate upcoming road work needs, overnight construction will occur in phases at a couple of locations along World Drive the week of August 29.
For your safety and the safety of those working on this project, those who will be driving around the area are encouraged to follow all signage and directions and take extra caution. Continue reading this post to learn more about what will be involved in this construction project and how it may impact your travel plans.

Guests staying at one of the Magic Kingdom Resort Area hotels in the next few days should be advised that overnight rehearsals will be taking place at Magic Kingdom Park on August 26, 28, and 31. Show-level audio and pyrotechnics will be seen and heard throughout the park (which will be clear of Guests when the rehearsals will take place) and potentially at surrounding resort hotels on these dates. The rehearsals will take place in the Castle Forecourt Stage area.

Guests can now book a trip to Universal Orlando Resort and receive two extra days of admission to Universal’s theme parks for free with purchase of vacation package starting as low as $89 per adult, per night. This new vacation package option gives guests the chance to experience all the thrills and excitement of Universal Orlando Resort at a value price. Guests will also be able to upgrade their vacation package to stay at one of Universal’s themed on-site hotels.

Summer is almost coming to an end. While this means that the theme parks will be less crowded and the weather will get cooler, it also means that park hours will be slightly reduced. Fortunately, this year, Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park will continue to remain open after sunset even in September and October, meaning that most of the nighttime experiences will continue to be available to Guests throughout the rest of the year. Let's take a look around the park now.

Welcome to the second part of our newest Animal Kingdom photo-report. Don't forget to go back to check out PART 1 of this update before proceeding.
In the previous part, we took a quick look around Discovery Island (which also includes the park's hub) as well as half of DinoLand U.S.A. Let's now continue our tour of the park by walking around the rest of this land and then moving on to Asia and Africa. We really hope you will enjoy the rest of these pictures.

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is very excited to announce a baby spotted hyena has just been introduced to the park’s hyena  group or clan at the Edge of Africa habitat. The 20-week-old male cub was born at the park on April 3, 2016, and is named “Mandazi” for his sweet personality after a traditional pastry found on the Swahili coast. The cub is healthy and is being cared for by first-time mother, 8-year-old Taziki, who was also born at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.
