MyMagic+ rollout going well, Disney exec says

Contrary to some of the other comments that have leaked out from the Mouse House but...

Walt Disney Co. Chief Financial Officer Jay Rasulo said even though the rollout of MyMagic+ is taking longer than hoped for, the theme park company is pleased with what it's seeing in terms of behaviors in the use of it, the Orlando Sentinel reports. 
Rasulo's comments came at a conference last week organized by UBS Securities LLC. He said Disney expects to recoup its investment in the billion-dollar MyMagic+ project in two ways: One, as people do their vacation planning from home, they tend to plan more of their time at Walt Disney World since they are less bombarded by other things they can do in Orlando. Second, since the technology lets Disney know where the person using it is in their itinerary, it allows the theme park to not only look at ways to enhance the visit but also up-sell.

new topiaries, food around World Showcase, Village People

Yes, the most important thing about the headine is Village People:

Disney World has released details about its upcoming Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, which will feature topiaries and other attractions based on "Phineas & Ferb," "Monsters University," "Cars 2," "Oz: The Great and Powerful" and more. The 20th annual festival, which runs March 6 to May 19, will add special food kiosks in World Showcase and add the Village People to its Flower Power concert series for the first time.

Starbucks

While I'm thrilled that WDW will finally have some decent coffee (although Kona was a good reason to hop on the monorail) in a couple of parks...I hope they keep some of the goodies at the Main Street Bakery instead of replacing with Starbucks "not so tasty treats".

Two new Starbucks opening at Disney


Two new Starbucks locations will open in 2013 at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom and Epcot theme parks, Local 6 reports.

The cafes will replace the Main Street Bakery at the Magic Kingdom and The Fountain View at Epcot, and are included in the six Starbucks locations set to open at Disney parks in California and Florida

The bakery will close for refurbishment in January and open as a Starbucks early next summer, while The Fountain View will close in March and re-open as Starbucks in midsummer.
