HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS AND RESORTS ANNOUNCEMENTS

Living in Delaware her whole life, Jessica did not know much about Walt Disney World until she went at 13 years old. That initial trip, though, got her hooked on the magic. As the years went on, she did everything she could to learn more about Disney (including watching documentaries and reading books). She did not know many people that shared her passion until she discovered the wonders of the internet and the Disney community found on it. She has gotten involved with as many Disney projects as she can, including writing the weekly news articles for The Disney Driven Life and writing for her own blog, The True Disney Fan. Jessica has also taken on a position with Celebrations Magazine, working the social media aspects of the publication. Through all these platforms, Jessica strives to bring as much Disney magic as possible into her everyday life, and she works to share it with everyone she meets!


Disney Parks Blog made a couple big announcements regarding some new additions to the Walt Disney World Resort last week.

The first announcement is for Hollywood Studios and is about the Block Party Bash.  As of January 1, 2011, the Block Party Bash will no longer be running and, after a couple weeks of rest, will be replaced by a new parade.  There is no word on exactly what this new parade will be called, it seems to be still in the works, but what it will include are some of your favorite Pixar characters along with a couple new additions, including Emile and Remy from Ratatouille and Carl and Russell from Up!

The second announcement is about the brand new resort coming to Walt Disney World property, The Art of Animation Resort.  The Disney Parks Blog has set the opening of this new value resort to the Summer of 2012.  There is even a page on disneyworld.com about the new resort, including some new information that has not been announced yet and a new piece of concept art.  There is no word yet as to when you will be able to start booking your stay at this resort, but I have a feeling we still have a while to wait for that anyway. Click here to check out the resort’s new page.

Stay tuned here to The Disney Driven Life for more information on these and more Disney updates.
