Since the introduction of MyMagic+ and the My Disney Experience mobile app, Guests have had the convenience of managing their entire Walt Disney World Resort visit on the go. As more Guests have begun using this powerful tool to access real time information about all of their offerings (including park maps and showtimes), The Walt Disney World Resort has an opportunity to reduce the usage of paper guidemaps and times guides throughout the park.

Surfacing summer 2016 at SeaWorld Orlando will be Mako, a new, 200-foot-tall hypercoaster that will reach 73 mph along 4,760 feet of steel track (nearly a mile long) and leave riders feeling both breathless and weightless. Named for one of the ocean’s fastest known sharks, Mako will be the tallest, fastest, and longest roller coaster in the Orlando area. Hypercoasters are known for high speeds and steep drops and hills that create a feeling of weightlessness or “air time.”

Guests visiting the Walt Disney World Resort in the next two days should take note of the following advisory (it should impact a limited number of Guests):
From 11:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. on May 28–29, 2015, there will be traffic impacts due to an electrical manhole repair on Vacation Club Way. Flaggers will be in place to direct traffic and help Guests to safely drive through the construction zone. As a result, be sure to drive with caution on Vacation Club Way.

The "Spring Fever" has almost completely disappeared from the Orlando area, as summer crowds start heading to the parks and temperatures keep climbing.
In the meantime, work continues in the central hub of the Magic Kingdom Park, which has been busier than usual in the past few days due to the extended holiday weekend. This afternoon we will check on the progress that has been done since our last visit to the park (dating back to the beginning of May).
