Disney is building a boulder wall along the shoreline of Seven Seas Lagoon following the fatal alligator attack earlier this summer. Rope fences were already installed but the boulder wall is another layer of protection for guests.

Those refillable resort mugs are getting a makeover! The mugs no longer feature a handle, so they are more like a tumbler than a "mug." Some resorts still have mugs with handles but once those are sold out all resorts will feature the new design.

We're seeing reports that new dining options and a grocery store will be built for Fort Wilderness and Wilderness Lodge. There is no official word yet from Disney on this project.

Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa is hosting a new fireworks party, the Gone Mad Wishes Fireworks Party. Everyone can attend the party on Wednesday nights from 8:30-10:30 p.m. The party is FREE and food and drinks are available for purchase.

Flying Fish has reopened at Disney's BoardWalk! Check out this first look and review from our friends at the Disney Food Blog.

Several new restaurants have been added to Tables in Wonderland including Tiffins and Nomad Lounge at Disney's Animal Kingdom.

If you're making plans to visit the Walt Disney World Resort this holiday season there is a new room-only discount! You can save up to 20 percent on rooms depending on the resort you choose.

And finally, the Disney Cruise Line has been named the Top Travel Brand of the Year in a new Harris Poll.

And there you have it: all the Disney news that's fit to print! What do you think about the new boulder walls being built around Seven Seas Lagoon? Let us know in the comments.

Lots of things happening! I hope that the Grand Floridian Party is still going on when I'm there.
