- Spice Road Table, the new tapas restaurant in the Morocco Pavilion at Epcot opened this week. It serves small bites like Cod Croquettes, Fried Calamari, and Spicy Shrimp. The restaurant has seating both indoors and outdoors with views of Illuminations each night.
- FastPass+ testing for both onsite, as well as off-site guests, will begin taking place at the Magic Kingdom. This test will begin on January 14. It will be similar to the test that’s currently taking place at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. For off-site guests who wish to make FastPass+ reservations, they may do so via the MyMagic+ kiosks that will be found throughout the park. (They will not be able to make reservations via the My Disney Experience app at this time. Resort guests will continue to be able to use the full My Disney Experience to book FastPass+ choices in advance at all four parks. Legacy FASTPASS will cease to exist at the Magic Kingdom, but off-site guests will still be able to obtain Legacy FASTPASS tickets at both Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. (The other two parks are expected to get rid of Legacy FASTPASS by the end of the month.)
- Avatarland has officially broken ground this week. The land is expected to be finished by 2017 at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in the former location of Camp Minnie-Mickey.
