Peter Pan’s Flight over at the Magic Kingdom will be seeing a month-long refurbishment, starting September 28 and lasting through October 31. It will reopen on November 1.
The Senses Spa over at Disney’s Saratoga Springs has been under refurb for quite a few months now. It is slated to come out of it’s redo on July 25. Features of this newly remolded area include ten treatment rooms offering an array of services including water therapy, massage and facials. Heated loungers (like what can be found on some of the cruise ships), plus a whirlpool and steam room will be available in the wet areas. In addition, three manicure stations and four pedicure stations round out the services offered.
Currently, Disney is testing it’s MyMagic+ experience, with the largest experiment of MagicBands. Because of that, the resorts that are taking part in the test, The Contemporary and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, are currently selling some of the accessories that can be purchased to make your MagicBand, your own. These include the CoverBands, which slip over the entire MagicBand to give a completely different look. MagicSliders, which go around the Mickey head icon touch point that can be found on the bands are also available. Finally, to put in the little holes that aren’t being used on your magic band (like the holes of a watch) are the MagicBandIts. These are similar to the little jibbits that are sold to be put in Crocs. No word yet on when the entire system will be rolled out, but rumors have indicated that it will be done by the end of the year, though will continued testing, that time frame could very well change.
This week, there are a couple of smaller Limited Time Magic opportunities. First off, guests can visit the Disney Parks Blog to vote on which Long-Lost Friend they would like to see in the second of the Long Lost Friends Weeks. Also, guests will be able to pick up a mug in the shape of a boot, featuring the logo of The Lone Ranger, (which comes out in theaters on July 3), over at Pecos Bill’s, filled with a root beer slush. In addition, they will be serving up the “Masked Ranger Favorite”, which is Deluxe Angus Cheeseburger with Bacon and Onion Rings. Finally, for those who watch the Disney Channel, well you know all about Teen Beach Movie. To celebrate that, over at Typhoon Lagoon, until September 1, guests can partake in a special dance party, featuring a DJ and some fun games and activities.
