Pandora Opens at Walt Disney World and More News You Need!

Welcome to the News You Need! May was an exciting month for the Disney parks, and as you know, all the great news makes your DVC memberships and those contracts you’re looking at worth even more. So let’s find out what’s happening!

Double Days at Castaway! – If you’ve ever been cruising with Disney, you’ve fallen in love with the cruise line’s private island, Castaway Cay. And while most sailings spend one fantastic day on the island’s white sandy beaches, nine different sailings this summer will spend double the days on the island! Check out Disney’s article to find out which cruises get you double island days, and call your favorite travel agent to book!

Meet Baby Groot and Starlord! Disney’s Hollywood Studios is under heavy construction, but that hasn’t stopped the park from adding new exciting shows and some great meet and greets. If you can’t wait to say hello to Baby Groot and Starlord from Guardians of the Galaxy II, head over to One Man’s Dream at Studios to say hello to the tiny tree and the universal defender. Be sure to check your Times Guide or the app for meet and greet times!


Lularoe is doing Disney Coming soon, your favorite leggings and dresses (and more!) will feature Disney prints. Lularoe is doing a Disney collaboration and while no release date has been set, it’s rumored that the collection will be out before Summer is up!

What Time is the 3:00 Parade? We’ve all joked about the afternoon parade and Disney guests who don’t know what time it starts. It’s called the 3:00 parade, but it actually rolls through different parts of the Magic Kingdom at different times. Beginning in August, the parade will officially step off at 2 p.m. instead of its usual time. There’s speculation that this time change will make room for a new night parade at Walt Disney World, and we’ll keep you posted!


PANDORA The World of Avatar is Open!  The long-awaited new land at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is officially open and guests are obsessed. Both rides have gotten great reviews and the land itself is stunningly beautiful. If you’re headed to Animal Kingdom over the next few months, remember that Pandora is new and take advantage of FastPass+ and Extra Magic Hours.
