Pandora: The World of Avator

Wow, has it been awhile as work got crazy busy and I also got married, but I’m back with some Disney information. Biggest news first is that over the Memorial Day Weekend Pandora: The World of Avatar had it’s grand opening at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. I was there on May 27 and will give you the rundown below. Suffice it to say the area is absolutely amazing and Flight of Passage is pushing hard to nudge out my all time favorite The Tower of Terror as my favorite attraction.

Tiered Ticket Pricing and More

Every year for the last several years, Disney has had a price increase. One of the things that has popped up in the speculation for the last few years was whether the increase would incorporate a tiered price level similar to how the tier resort rooms. Well this year, the mouse has jumped tickets into the tiered bandwagon. Starting yesterday February 28, one day tickets are broken into the tiers: peak, value, and regular. Each month will be split among days having each type, with the amount of each being determined by the expected traffic. IE: Expect say July to have more Peak days than say September. The prices are $97, $102, and $114 respectively for Epcot, Hollyood Studios, and Animal Kingdom. Magic Kingdom still runs higher at $105, $110, and $124. Note: when I say each type means it may have a type or it may not. The aforementioned July has 0 value days allocated. You also now have to select what day you’ll be going to purchase a one-day ticket. Tickets also have expiration date currently of December 31, 2017. The catch is your ticket is valid for that “season” or any tier below it. So if your plans change from say regular to a peak day, you’ll have to upgrade your ticket to get in. Note: If you use a higher tier for a lower tier day you do not get a refund of the difference. Anyone that has already bought their ticket for an upcoming trip can still use those ticket(s).

Universal’s Little Mermaid Going Blonde?!?!?

Ok first off I’m going to say up front this is largely going to be a rant so take the bulk of this as pure opinion. The news part of this is that ChloĆ« Grace Moretz, who will be starring in the live action adaption to The Little Mermaid, announced that the little mermaid will be blonde, not the redhead from the Classic Disney animated film. This is because the original work the live action and Disney animated version draw on by Hans Christen Andersen never said she was a redhead. Disney just named her Ariel and made her a redhead, along with a couple other story deviations. The movie is being done by Universal and will be out in 2017.
