My Disney Experience has changed! Change isn’t always a good thing. I’m not 100% sure all the changes to My Disney Experience were necessary and for the best. Sure, they have attempted to make it more accessible and easier to use. There’s a new “My Resort Dashboard” for guests who are staying on property that includes reservation information, directions, and a direct link to the Resort Front Desk. But there is a little bit of a learning curve if you were happy, and used to, the old version. CLICK HERE FOR THE FULL STORY


Learn to speak Na’vi Get on board with the World of AVATAR and learn to communicate via the Na’vi Translator. Coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom in May, the translator helps you learn how to pronounce 90 Na’vi words. The Translator Device will sell for $19.99 which includes 15 cards. Additional cards will be sold separately for $6.99 each. This looks like it will be fun for the kids, but I’m not sure about the adult appeal. Would you get one? Let Dad know.

New Restaurant to open in Disney Springs! The Polite Pig is set to open in Disney Springs on April 10th. The cuisine features barbecue with a twist. Pair that with southern sides and a choice of over 50 types of bourbon for a unique dining experience. The restaurant hasn’t made its way to the My Disney Experience app yet, but appears to be fast casual or quick service and not a part of the Disney Dining Plan at this time. We’ll keep you posted if that changes. CLICK HERE FOR THE FULL STORY
