Character Dining Returning

While character dining has returned to many restaurants in Disney World, there are still a few more that have yet to bring back their character visitors. This week, however, Disney announced that Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast at Cape May Cafe in Disney’s Beach Club is coming BACK! We haven’t seen this breakfast buffet experience since 2020.

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Issues

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster closed again in Disney’s Hollywood Studios and we couldn’t help but notice that there has been a pattern of technical difficulties. On July 3rd. the ride shut down twice in one morning.

Ready to ROCK?!

According to a Cast Member, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster has not gotten a full refurbishment since Disney World reopened in 2020, and as a result, it continues to experience some issues. It’s possible that we could expect an upcoming refurbishment so stay tuned for more news!

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster is having a ROUGH year in Disney World!

Frozen Sing-Along Celebration

And this week we learned that the For the First Time In Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration will be temporarily closing soon in Hollywood Studios on August 22nd. We don’t know a reopening date yet, so we can only take guesses about how long this closure could last.

Refurbishments happen all the time in Disney World, and the length of closure time can vary considerably. We’ll be keeping an eye on this developing situation!
