Weekly Roundup: Flower and Garden, Blizzard Beach and the Polynesian Resort

Celebrating the Release of ‘Raya and the Last Dragon’

To celebrate the release of ‘Raya and the Last Dragon’, Disney World will have several fun things for you to enjoy and to introduce you to these great characters. At Animal Kingdom guests can take a photo with a 40-ton sand sculpture at Discovery Island Stage, learn to draw new characters at The Animation Experience at Conservation Station or enjoy several new tasty treats, all inspired by the film. Go check out the making of the sand sculpture that took two artisans three days to carve. Pretty cool, huh? 

Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival at Disney World

Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival at Disney World is back and here until July 5, 2021! After missing this festival in 2020, we are SO excited about its return! We cannot decide what excites us more…. the flowers, the topiaries, the food, the live music, who knows, but whatever it is…. we are here for it! What are you most excited about? Tell us in the comments.

When you go, you may notice a new look for the main entrance, where six flags of the original Epcot icons were raised for the first time, with new lighting and music. Read more about the Flower and Garden Festival, RIGHT HERE

Blizzard Beach at Disney World is Open

Yesterday was the big opening of Blizzard Beach! For all of you waterpark and Blizzard Beach fans, get excited! You can make reservations NOW. So who is ready to go and have some water fun with the family? Read more about why you should be excited about Blizzard Beach’s reopening, cause, I mean you should be! 

Polynesian Village Resort, Part of the Disney Resorts Collection

Not a lot of news here, but was definitely notable. As you know, the Poly is undergoing some major construction, but come October 1, 2021 you will see some new accommodations and changes just in time for “The World’s Most Magical Celebration”, in honor of its 50th anniversary. For all of you Poly fans, I know this is what you have been waiting for. 

Disneyland News

Okay, so around here at Walt Express Blog, we do not get wrapped up in rumors…. BUT since everyone has been anticipating the opening of Walt’s first park, I wanted to add. The rumor is simple and IS NOT definite, so do not take it to heart. There is a rumor floating around that Disneyland may open April 1. AGAIN, this is not definite, but for sure worth noting. We are so ready for Disneyland to open, safely of course. How bout you? Tell us below! 

So there ya have it! Things are happening quickly as events and such start opening back up and the world gets back to “normal”. I laugh every time I say or type the word NORMAL, because seriously…. what is normal? See ya right here next week for another weekly roundup!
