Disney Rumors

If you are visiting Epcot between now and the Christmas holidays, be sure to visit one of my favorite attractions Journey Into Imagination. Why, you might ask?

Rumors around the Disney fan community say the Imagination pavilion will close for a year long refurbishment on 1/4/14. The rumors also suggest that this "re-Ferb-ishment" will give us a whole new attraction staring Phineas, Ferb, and Dr. Doofenshmirtz. You will help Phineas, Ferb, and Perry defeat one of Dr. Doofenshmirtz's evil innators in an all new attraction.

So, you have until the end of this year to see Figment and the ride in its current form. If you're a Captain EO fan you need to visit the 3D theater next door to Figment, because the King of Pop is leaving as well.

Disney has not yet officially announced the closure of Imagination or announced a new attraction for the pavilion. So, everything is still just rumors, but I expect to see something happen at this pavilion soon.

Lastly, expect big changes coming to Disney's Holloywood Studios. There are several rumors circulating that mention Carsland and Star Wars Land. I'll cover those in our next rumors post.

Needing A Disney Drink Fix?

I'm not sure where you live, but where I am it is HOT! Perfect time to dream of cold Disney drinks!

Citrus Swirl at Adventureland

LeFou's Brew at New Fantasyland

Grand Marnier Slush at Epcot

The beloved Dole Whip from the Poly (or Adventureland)
Months away from your next Disney fix? Put on your Mickey ears, turn on your fan, and make an at home version of these Disney treats! Here is a favorite from

Homemade Dole Whip Recipe

  • 2 cups frozen pineapple
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice (Try canned coconut milk for piƱa colada soft serve!)
  • 1/16 tsp salt
  • pinch pure stevia extract, or 2 tbsp sugar of choice
  • scant 1 tbsp lemon juice
Blend all ingredients until smooth. Scoop out with an ice cream scoop, or squeeze through a pastry bag, yonanas machine, or a plastic bag with an edge cut off. (If your blender is not super-powerful like a Vita-Mix, you may need to add a little more liquid and then freeze a bit before serving, or churn in an ice cream maker.) For soft-serve that holds its shape longer, freeze the swirled dole whip at least 20 minutes prior to serving. Makes 3 servings the size of the pineapple whip in the photos.
**Note: The Dole Whip and all of the variations (strawberry, mango, etc) are Vegan, yay!**
