As Downtown Disney continues to transform into Disney Springs, Cast Members and Guests will see more roadwork on Buena Vista Drive in the coming months to support the area’s future growth. Buena Vista Drive is being widened from 7 to 10 lanes with dedicated bus lanes, to ultimately improve the traffic flow.
Additionally, two pedestrian bridges and an additional slip ramp will open soon to provide our Cast and Guests easier access to and from Downtown Disney.

Work on a new exit lane for non-Disney operated buses is currently taking place near the Unicorn parking lot at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park.
For this reason, drivers are encouraged to exercise even more caution and be aware of their surroundings while this work takes place (it is expected to last a few more weeks). Once the work is complete, there will be a dedicated exit lane for buses and a dedicated exit lane for Cast Members leaving the parking lot.

Both Busch Gardens Tampa and SeaWorld Orlando are honoring Florida first responders through September. Between September 1-30, first responders will receive free admission to both Florida parks, and a special offer for additional tickets. In addition to complimentary admission, qualified first responders wil be able to receive up to four discounted tickets per park for friends and family for just $50 per ticket, resulting in savings of 48 percent off general admission.

It's hard to believe, but September is already here. This means that summer is almost over (at least, according to the calendar), and the very popular "Frozen" Summer Fun event will soon come to an end at Disney's Hollywood Studios.
While it will be sad to see the amazing nightly firework show gone, Guests visiting the park will be able to enjoy much lighter crowds and lower wait times in the next few weeks. Goodbye busy summer season, hello (brief) light season!

Welcome to the second part of our latest Disney's Hollywood Studios photo-report, OTPN Readers. We encourage you to check PART 1 before proceeding. In the previous part of this update, we took a look around the entrance of the park, the Center Stage, the beautiful Chinese Theater, Pixar Place, and more.
Let's now continue to walk around the park, as there are still a few other news to report, including an update on the construction of the new flex theater.

Like many other Central Florida attractions, the Skeleton Museum (located in the I-Drive 360 area) is offering a September Promotion for all first responders and military members. They will receive a 50% discount on the regular price of admission, which is currently $19.99 plus tax. Family members and friends (up to 6) accompanying them can receive admission for $12.99. This offer is valid through Sept. 30, 2015. A valid ID is required to take advantage of this discount.
