Walt Disney World News Round-up For Friday July 6th, 2019

Happy Friday! We've made it through another week and I hope that yours was filled with 4th of July fun. I'll kick off the news round-up with an interesting tidbit, to the best of my knowledge there were no park closures down at Walt Disney World which is unusual. Looks like the creative pricing Disney is currently using has actually made an impact on one of the busiest days of the year. Now let's get on with the news!

March of the First Order Ends at Disney's Hollywood Studios July 6th, because Disney's Hollywood Studios is starting to get ready to welcome Star Wars:Galaxy's Edge on August 29th, 2019! This week we found out the Menu for Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo. It has a change from the Disneyland menu with a popular vegetarian dish missing.

If you want to add a little extra umph to your Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge Experience in Walt Disney World be sure to book a VIP Tour Guide to show you the sites of Batuu. This VERY special trip and tour is available on Ebay as part of an auction for The V Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to saving lives by helping to find a cure for cancer.

Speaking of the The V Foundation auction. If the Magic Kingdom is more your speed, you can also bid on a trip that includes one night in the Cinderella Castle Suite.

Guests planning to ring in the new year at Walt Disney World can add on one of three spectacular parties at Disney's Contemporary Resort to their night. From exquisite elegance to family fun, you can't go wrong kicking off 2020 at Walt Disney World.
