Of course, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge isn’t the only new land coming to Hollywood Studios. There’s also the upcoming Toy Story Land and while it’s not finished, the track for the new Slinky Dog coaster has been fully assembled. All it needs now is proper theming and a full land around it! The land is expected to open next summer.

As announced at D23, Epcot will be the next Disney theme park to undergo a massive refurbishment, but they will still be keeping one foot in the past. After all, it’s the park’s 35th anniversary and this retro-inspired merch looks pretty, pretty cool.

Jiko, The Wave, Olivia’s Cafe, Boatwrights, and The Turf Club are among the Disney-owned restaurants that have joined Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining Month. This program offers a three-course meal for $35, with $1 per meal being donated to charity. Meanwhile, several popular shops in Downtown Disney are being closed down to make room for more dining space.

Speaking of dining in Disney parks, Fantasmic has officially reopened after closing for 18 months to accommodate Star Wars construction. And yes, those dining packages are back, too. Dinner will cost $65 per adult for the Blue Bayou and $45 per adult at the River Belle Terrace. Packages for kids will only be $25. Naturally, the real draw here is guaranteed great seats for Fantasmic itself. For additional reading, here’s a guide to the various Fantasmic-inspired foods and treats coming to the park.

And if you just can’t wait to see it in person, here’s full video of the newly updated Fantasmic show.

Let’s pause the generally cheerful Disney news for a bit to appreciate that Ash vs. Evil Dead is coming to Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights event this year. You can watch the trailer reveal above.

And let’s end this with one more terrifying image. What does an audio animatronic Na’vi look like with its skin removed? Here you go.
