Are you making plans to attend the 2016 Epcot Food and Wine Festival and wondering how to budget your money? Disney is once again offering a wearable Disney Gift Card that can be loaded with money starting as low at $15. Guests can also purchase a limited-release card activated with $200 that comes with a lanyard, case, and Food and Wine medallion.

If you want to know how much it would cost to eat and drink everything at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival, the answer is $823.96.

Disney is looking to cast a family for a new commercial! Requirements include parents aged in their 20s to 50s, and kids ages 8 to 16. The families will travel to Europe and will receive $2,500 per person plus travel.

The Disney Wonder is currently in dry dock and several enhancements are planned including additions to the Oceaneer's Club, preparations for the new Frozen-themed show, a new contemporary nightclub in After Hours, and more.

And finally from the "we can't make this stuff up files": a doctor in Michigan claims that riding Big Thunder Mountain Railroad might help patients pass small kidney stones. Yes, really.

Leave us a comment and let us know your thoughts on today's news in the round-up.

The wearable gift cards are a MUST for F&W festival goers.. We get them every year and they are a great convenience. I buy one for each day at the festival, so when the $$ runs out for that day, I call it a wrap...

I may sign us up for the chance at doing a Disney commercial. My two kids, Brenden and Mia are 9 and 12, respectively.
