Navigating the Parks: Hollywood Studios!

Hey everyone, I’m Mike, she’s Sophie, that’s Brenda, and he’s Grogu, and we’re On the Road with Mickey! This is episode 156 and our feature topic this week is our Navigating the Parks: Hollywood Studios! 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
    • Brenda: The dates for the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival have been released! The Festival will run from March 1 – July 5, 2023!
    • Sophie: As we all know, Splash Mountain’s last day of operation was January 22nd, and is closed for the makeover into Tiana’s Bayou Adventure. However, while one ride closed, other attractions are reopening! Ariel’s Grotto reopened on January 22nd, and Enchanted Tales with Belle will reopen on February 19th. This is in addition to Pete’s Silly Sideshow reopening recently as well!
    • Mike: Each day we get a day closer to things being completed at Epcot. While we don’t have an exact date yet for Moana: Journey of Water, we do know that the walkthrough attraction will be opening in the fall of this year!
