Friday News Round-up September 21st, 2018

Have you stayed in the know with all things Disney this week? Don't worry if you didn't have a chance, we're here with the Friday news round-up to bring you up to date!

Big news continues to com out regarding Epcot, with the unpopular announcement regarding the closure of Illuminations: Reflections of Earth at the end of summer 2019. Never fear though because the show will be replaced with a new magnificent fireworks show at Epcot immediately following.

Captain Jack Sparrow's Pirate Tutorial in the Magic Kingdom will have its final performance on September 29, 2018. This closure comes alongside other entertainment budget cutbacks such as several performers from the Citizens of Hollywood Streetmosphere team at Hollywood Studios.

Our friends over at the Disney Food Blog offered some interesting updates including a first look at the new food coming to Centertown Market at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, and allergy-friendly updates to MyDisneyExperience mobile ordering. There's always something good to read on the DFB.

The new partnership with Ziploc bags can now be seen in full force at Walt Disney World where Magic Kingdom guests will find Disney Branded Ziploc Bags being distributed at Splash Mountain. Families visiting over at Epcot will also find that Ziploc is the new sponsor of the Kidcot Fun Stops. While I find the partnership slightly confusing after Disney's commitment to reduce plastic use, I must admit that the printed branding on the bags is cute, and I really enjoy the concept of the Kidcot promotion.

Finally - in a special test program of the Disney Armed Forces Salute ticket program Walt Disney World Resort has recently announced that Department of Defense Civil Service workers and Contractors will also be eligible for the salute and ticket discounts from September 13th until December 19th, 2018. This test does not include the Room Discount.

I can't wait to see the new show that will replace IllumiNations!

And I totally agree about being somewhat perplexed and confused by the plastic/no plastic contraction - ha! I like the little bags though.
