Grab your favorite beverage, sit back, and relax, and tell us in the comments below what you think! Here’s the rundown of what we talked about:

  • Cheddar from the Big Cheese
    • Reports from D23:
      • Sophie: The completion of World Celebration neighborhood will happen in late 2023. Additionally, Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana will open in late 2023. Lastly, fan-favorite character Figment will also appear live to park guests by the end of 2023!
      • Brenda: At the Magic Kingdom, TRON / Lightcycle Run will open in Spring 2023, not 2022 as was reported earlier. Happily Ever After will be back to light up the skies over Cinderella Castle in 2023. At the Haunted Mansion, the Hatbox Ghost will materialize in 2023.
      • Mike: Coming to Disney Cruise Lines: the Disney Treasure, the sixth ship in the DCL fleet, which will sail in 2024. Sadly, it sounds like Harmonious will not live much beyond the end of the 50th Anniversary celebration. Not sure when it will be changed, but word is sometime in 2023.

  • A little bit of Walt
    • “The motion picture will never fully replace the printed word, but it will go a long way in becoming its most valuable adjunct. There seems little question that the human mind will absorb picturized information much quicker than by means of the printed word.” – Walt Disney
