Disney's Hollywood Studios will soon be home to Echo Lake Eats, a collection of food kiosks to feed the hungry summer crowds. The kiosks will reportedly be: Sliders to the Stars, Hollywood Waffles of Fame, and Bocados del Lago Nachos y Empanadas. They should all be open later this month.

If you're a fan of Disney Dollars we have some bad news. The popular Disney money is no more. Disney stopped printing the Disney Dollars over the weekend. If you still have Disney Dollars you can still use them in the parks since they have no expiration date.

Disney has vowed to use only cage-free eggs at all the theme parks and on Disney Cruise line by the end of this year.

If you like to add some pizzazz to your retail MagicBands there's a new collection of artwork available at the MagicBand on Demand stations at Walt Disney World Resort including Haunted Mansion themes.

And if you just can't get enough Disney news, there's a new Disney newscast from the Disney Parks Blog. Check out the first iNSIDE Disney Parks newscast:

The Walt Disney Company is reporting a drop in attendance at the theme parks between January and March of this year compared to the same time last year.

And finally, permits have been filed for an overhaul of the roadways near the Magic Kingdom.

Are you looking forward to checking out the news kiosk at Disney's Hollywood Studios? Let us know in the comments.

I wonder if the drop in attendance has anything to do with the pricing tiers Disney now has. It has made me rethink my vacation. I'm not sure I like the new system.
