As previously reported, the Allergy Kiosk located on Discovery Island (at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park) is currently closed for refurbishment, and is scheduled to return to operation on September 2, 2015. Starting from September 2 through September 22, the Beastly Kiosk in Asia will be closed for refurbishment. That location is scheduled to reopen on September 23. During this time, menu items from the kiosks will not be relocated to other kiosks.

Yesterday morning, a veterinarian at SeaWorld Orlando successfully removed a fishing hook embedded in the mouth of a rescued loggerhead sea turtle.
This juvenile loggerhead sea turtle currently weighs approximately 60 pounds and was rescued near Jetty Beach (located near Cape Canaveral, Florida) by the Sea Turtle Preservation Society. The injured animal was promptly brought to SeaWorld Orlando for immediate medical attention and rehabilitation.

To further align resort and park processes, as well as match industry standards, courtesy Guest wheelchairs will no longer be available at Walt Disney World Resort hotels starting from next month (at the moment, the rumored date for the implementation of this change is Tuesday, September 8, 2015).

In addition to that, the faux mountain range behind the rockwork is finally getting painted. Take a look around this new themed area inside Islands of Adventure:

Just in time for Labor Day travel planning, Discovery Cove is offering Florida residents a special offer that continues giving through 2016.

For the first time ever, the popular service that lets Disney Parks Guests reserve their favorite attractions and shows before they arrive is coming to the Eat to the Beat concert series, taking place at Epcot during the Food & Wine Festival.
