    A presentation was given in Hong Kong that talked about the in-production Iron Man Experience ride that's coming to Hong Kong Disneyland in 2016. Micechat got some images from the presentation that makes the ride look like a new version of Star Tours. Here are a few images.

    Disney Imagineering did a full fan Q&A to answer questions of Walt Disney World's new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and finished the presentation by debuting a new video of the ride. You an read the full Q&A here, a recap here, and watch the video below.

    Some new images of an under-construction Tron ride at Disneyland Shanghai have been snapped, via Disney and More. These will eventually be walled in so the whole ride will be indoors, ala Space Mountain, but in the world of Tron.

    Finally, Disney has announced their next 24 hour Disney party, both at Magic Kingdom and Disneyland. It's May 23. Read more here.
