SeaWorld Orlando's Rescue Team is currently caring for an approximately two-week old baby male manatee that was found abandoned last week in the Halifax River, off the east coast of Florida. The orphaned calf was spotted a week ago, on Wednesday, July 20 and transported to SeaWorld Orlando’s Rescue facility by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). The calf still had its umbilical cord attached, weighed 58 lbs and was 115 cm. long upon arrival.

In early August, Guests visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be invited to stop by the "Pete’s Dragon" activity table at Rafiki’s Planet Watch (located in front of the national parks map) to learn more about our wonderful natural world.
At these locations, Guests can pick up a “Pete’s Dragon” button and take part in a puzzle game about the amazing national parks located across the U.S. In the film, one of the main characters is a ranger working in a Pacific Northwest Park.

Every few months, some of the characters meeting Guests at the Walt Disney World Resort move to different locations for a variety of different reasons.
Among the latest changes, we noticed that Goofy, Chip & Dale, as well as Daisy & Donald are now greeting Guests at new locations around Disney's Hollywood Studios. Goofy, Chip, and Dale can now be found on Commissary Lane across from Writer’s Stop, while Daisy & Donald now meet Guest by the main entrance.

On Friday, July 29, 2016, Guests are invited to come out and show their stripes as Busch Gardens Tampa hosts its fourth annual Global Tiger Day celebration.

Back in February, the Walt Disney World Resort announced plans to build a new sports venue at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Yesterday morning, new details were released, including the design of the new state-of-the-art venue.
The new indoor sports venue, which will be adjacent to the Jostens Center, will feature a flexible design that can morph from a large competition space capable of seating more than 8,000 fans to as many as four separate competition areas.
