Show 44 - DDG Doing The News

Michelle and Jayne chat through the news on this weeks podcast and below you can find some of the details discussed together with pictures. Remember, if you want to help us please leave an iTunes review for us.

First item in our news, was the announcement of some of the presentations that will be happening during D23 at Anaheim between 14th and 16th August 2015. 

The Disney Legends Awards Ceremony, hosted by Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger, will kick off the Expo on Friday, August 14. Later that same day, The Walt Disney Studios will give fans a sneak peek at all the latest from Disney Animation and Pixar.  To accommodate more attendees, Disney is creating “Hall D23,” a new 7,500-seat venue located in Hall D of the Anaheim Convention Center, so that more guests than ever can see the presentations live and in person. Do you have plans to attend? Tickets for D23 EXPO 2015 are available at a discounted price until June 30, 2015. Adult one-day adult admission is $67 but if you are a D23 member you will only pay $58. Multi-day tickets are also available. For more information, visit their website.

Now, lets move to Tokyo. The Disneyland Resort, which is operated by the Oriental Land Company, has announced major expansion to the parks.

Disney Sea is to get a Frozen-themed area and this will be part of a land based on Scandanavia. This area will make the resorts 8th port. Disneyland Park will have an expansion to double the size of its Fantasyland with a new elements themed on Beauty and the Beast and Alice in Wonderland. Exciting times ahead!

The last piece of news we are sharing in this post, is Star Wars Weekends related.  Star Wars Dining Experience Announced has announced there is going to be a Rebel Hangar and it sounds like it is going to be the place to find shelter and good quality food and drink during Star Wars Weekends. Rumour has it, this lounge experience was once a place for all the cool rebel pilots, aliens and smugglers to kick back. This will take over part of the Backlot Express area at Disney Hollywood Studios and requires a reservation.

Prices range from $5.49 and and $16.99 I gather there will not be any characters wandering around but it does add – you never know who might be dining there!
