Epcot – One Adventure ends & a new one Begins in August

The Universe of Energy has been open since October of 1982.  During it’s 35 years in operation it educated people about the energy around our world.  We always thought of this lengthy attraction as a way to get out the the rain or cool of for a nap on a hot day.

It has recently been announced at D23, that the Universe of Energy attraction will be closing on August 13th, 2017 and I can’t help but look forward to what has been announced to replace it.

The new Guardians of the Galaxy attraction will be inside the current Universe of Energy building.  Disney has not released an opening date for the attraction but Disney Parks Blog says “Epcot’s brand new E-ticket attraction will be based on the rockin’ and action-packed world of “Guardians of the Galaxy” and is the next step in how guests can encounter these characters at the Walt Disney World Resort. Epcot just may be the perfect place for a “Guardians”-inspired attraction”

Mission: SPACE has been under refurbishment recently and now we know why…

in just a few weeks, guests will be able to enjoy new adventures at Mission: SPACE – an updated Orange Mission (more intense training) and a brand-new Green Mission (Less intense experience).

Disney Parks Blog states “The updated Orange Mission will make an even more visually stunning trip to Mars, while the all-new Green adventure will allow guests to blast off for an orbital adventure around planet Earth.”

Which mission will you take the next time you visit this attraction?

One other announcement has been made for Epcot at D23 and that is the opening of a Ratatouille inspired attraction in the France Pavilion. Guests will be able to shrink to Remy’s size and scurry to safety in a dazzling chase across a kitchen with the sights, sounds and smells of Gusteau’s legendary Parisian restaurant.  According to Disney Parks blog this attraction will open sometime in 2021.

I look forward to bringing you updated information about these attractions as they open in the parks.  Stay tuned…

Breaking News: SeaWorld Whale Program Changing

Today SeaWorld has announced some major changes coming to their Killer Whale program in their parks.  These evolutionary changes seem come from recent pressures of society and the concern for the whales’ safety and care.

It has been announced that the Orca Whales, currently in the care of SeaWorld, will be the very last generation of Orca Whales kept there.  These animals will continue to be given top care as they live out their lives in the parks.  Furthermore, the Orca breeding program has come to an end for SeaWorld; they will no longer breed whales in captivity.  It has been almost 40 years since SeaWorld has brought whales from the wild and their whale program will end with the whales that currently live there.

SeaWorld has also announced that the parks will be bringing their theatrical whale shows to an end and replacing them with new, natural Orca encounters that will focus on the natural world along with research, education, care and respect.  The Orca show, One Ocean, will end starting next year in San Diego followed by San Antonio and finally SeaWorld Orlando in 2019.  Although the end date is a few years away, this does show SeaWorld’s dedication to doing what is best for the animals in their parks.

All of these changes bring about a new partnership with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).  Now that they share common ground, both organizations will happily proceed forward hand in hand, focused on the health of the oceans and the animals that call them home.

My personal experience in the SeaWorld Parks has always been a positive one.  I do believe that their goal and mission is to protect and care for marine life.  If you have any doubts about this, try taking the “Behind the Scenes” tour next time you visit their park.  This tour will put you up close & personal with animals that they are working to rehabilitate and protect.

I too am very passionate about the animals and natural world around me.  I am also a Travel Agent.  If you have ever thought about visiting a SeaWorld Park, maybe even as a part of your next Disney vacation package, I can help you book & plan your trip at NO additional cost to you and it all starts with a free quote.  Don’t hesitate in seeing the historical Orca shows while they are still around.  They will soon be closed forever.
