Walt Disney World is now requiring kids ages 3 to 9 years old to scan their finger as they enter the theme parks. Adults and children older than 10 years old are already required to do this in order to prevent the use of stolen or shared tickets.

If you're making plans to attend Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party this fall, you'll want to check out the party-exclusive treats including holiday-themed cupcakes and Candy Corn Soft Serve Ice Cream!

Disney recently moved the fireworks launch site for Disney's Hollywood Studios and last month a mis-fired firework shell landed on World Drive and reportedly struck a vehicle. No one was injured, but it's still quite scary.

And finally, it seems that more people are choosing Golden Oak as their permanent home. While many of the million dollar homes were initially purchased as vacation homes, more than 40 percent of the residents now live in the neighborhood year-round.

What are your thoughts on requiring kid finger scans at the parks? Do you dream about living in Golden Oak? Leave us a comment and let us know what you think.
