This week, we followed up our coverage at D23 Expo 2017 with more details on several exciting Disney Parks announcements, including new information about our Minnie van transportation service that begins at the Walt Disney World Resort later this month. Guests at Disney’s Boardwalk Resort and Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts will be able to arrange their own private Disney van right from their smartphone. Here’s our latest story.
We also shared more details on new adventures coming to Mission: SPACE at Epcot. There will be an updated Orange Mission and a brand-new Green Mission. The updated Orange Mission will make an even more visually stunning trip to Mars, while the all-new Green adventure will allow guests to blast off for an orbital adventure around planet Earth.
And we even posted an update about new technology being used for a new film at the China pavilion at Epcot. Taking a cue from Walt Disney, who pioneered many different storytelling and motion picture innovations, we’ve developed a next-generation digital camera system. Our teams are going to be taking this immersive camera system on the road first to film a brand new seamless Circle-Vision show for the China pavilion. Check out this week’s story.
