While the official "World Oceans Day" is recognized Monday, June 8, The Seas with Nemo & Friends pavilion at Epcot will celebrate this special occasion on Wednesday, June 3, to get a head start on celebrating the beauty of our oceans and the creatures that live there. Guests will have the opportunity to explore the 5.7-million-gallon saltwater aquarium, learn interesting facts about the animals and play at different ocean-themed areas inside The Seas from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Guests visiting Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park should note that, due to a special event happening June 3, DinoLand U.S.A. will have a hard close at 6:30 p.m. This will be accurately listed in the Times Guide that is available to Guests.
Other areas of the park (including most of the rides, attractions, and dining locations) will be open until 7 p.m. on that same day. Be sure to stay tuned here on Orlando Theme Park News for additional advisories and updates.

Universal Orlando Resort today announced a project of remarkable vision: to bring to life an entirely new water theme park experience. Called "Volcano Bay," it will join Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure and become the resort’s third incredibly immersive park. Universal’s Volcano Bay will be a place for the entire family. It will be a completely new generation of experience that reimagines what it means to be a water park. 

Beginning from this month, the operating hours for the Beach Pool (located at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa) will be 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily.

Be sure to stay tuned here on Orlando Theme Park News for additional news or updates in regards to these services.

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.”
