On Tuesday, January 10, SeaWorld San Diego provided a first look at the all-new orca encounter that will debut in the theme park later this year. This new education-based Orca Encounter (which will also come to the Orlando and San Antonio parks) will give Guests the chance to learn how killer whales move, hunt and navigate, what they eat, and even how they communicate. Everything in these new experiences will reflect the natural world and will focus on the research, education, and care. 

Now that one of the busiest times of the year is finally behind us, the Magic Kingdom Park is starting to work on some of the areas of the park in need of a refurbishment.
As you will see in this update, the Walt Disney World Railroad is currently closed for a quite extensive refurbishment, and some of facades around the park are behind tarps. In addition to that, The Hall of Presidents is also temporarily closed and will reopen in June with the addition of the new President. Come and check out the park with us.

Welcome to the second part of our newest Magic Kingdom Park photo-report. Don't forget to also check out PART 1 of this large update by clicking on this link.
In the previous part, we took a look around the esplanade in front of the entrance of the park, Town Square, Main Street U.S.A., the central hub, and Tomorrowland. Let's continue to walk around the park to see what else has changed since our last visit. We can assure you that there's always something new to see around the Magic Kingdom.

Welcome to the third (and final) part of our latest Magic Kingdom Park photo-report. Once again, we recommend you check out PART 2 of this update before proceeding.
In the previous two parts, we took a quick look around the park's entrance, the hub, Tomorrowland, Fantasyland, and more. Now we will focus on the rest of the theme park, including Liberty Square, Frontierland, and Adventureland. Be sure to share with us your thoughts and opinions at the end of this update. We love reading comments!

Both Fun Spot America locations in Kissimmee and Orlando feature some of the most extreme go-kart tracks (especially the ones found in Kissimmee). Fun Spot America's official website points out that the "multi-level tracks are U.S. patented and completely unique in design. With four tracks to choice from, [there is] something for everyone!"
If you have ever wanted to ride these go-karts, you will be happy to know that you can virtually experience them through a new 360-degree video posted by Best of Orlando.
