For those of you with Apple devices, with the introduction of the new iPhone6 and iPhone6 Plus will come a new way to pay for purchases called ApplePay. The news also stated that Disney would be one of the companies that would accept this form of payment. It will be able to be utilized at Disney Parks and Resorts, as well as at Disney Stores and will officially be rolled out by the end of December.

Big news! Frozen is officially coming to Epcot! A new attraction is going to be built in the Norway Pavilion.

In addition, a new meet and greet location featuring Anna and Elsa will be included, so guests will be able to meet the sisters in Epcot. Of course, with this addition, it was announced that Maelstrom will be closing. Maelstrom’s last day of operation is slated to be October 5.

I’ve got more Frozen related announcements! For those who will be visiting the Magic Kingdom this holiday season, it was announced that Elsa will be the one this year to turn the castle into the ice palace that it typically transforms into each night. (Previously, the Fairy Godmother was the one who created the iced-out castle.) And for those who will get to see the “Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade,” they will have the opportunity to see Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, and Olaf who will be joining the parade this year.
