Sure, Mickey’s new permanent home at Magic Kingdom Park debuts in early April. But this week, we shared another early peek of Town Square Theater with Disney Parks Blog readers – before Magician Mickey begins greeting guests. Walt Disney Imagineering has designed the entire experience to be magical.

Also this week, we offered a video update on Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa. You can now see some of the key recreation elements taking shape in the Resort’s central Waikolohe Valley, including one of the great landmarks, Pu‘u Kino. It means “hidden faces in the lava” and if you look closely, you may already be able to detect a few of the hidden images.

Now, here’s a look at some of the other stories we worked on this week.
