by Matt in Fantasmic!, FASTPASS - Comments

Disney's Hollywood Studios will test the viability of FASTPASS for Fantasmic! during the week of April 22 through 27, 2013.

Cast Members will distribute FASTPASS tickets at the tip board (junction of Hollywood Boulevard and Sunset Boulevard).  The Fantasmic! FASTPASS tickets are not tied into the regular FASTPASS system, so guests may obtain a Fantasmic! FASTPASS without being prevented from obtaining another FASTPASS ticket for a different attraction.

Hola Amigos!  Meet Team Studios Central runner, Yulady Rodriguez.  Married and a mother of two children, a 16-year old boy and 12-year old girl, Yulady has been a local Orlando resident for the past 16 years who is very fluent in the Spanish language.  Originally from Maracay, Venezuela she moved to Orlando after earning her degree in hotel management and tourism.  She’s now a stay-at-home mom and is grateful to be able to spend a lot of time with her children. 

Yulady remembers when she was a skinny twig and a very accomplished swimmer up until the age of 10.  At that point the weight challenge began in her life.  She’d gain and lose weight consistently until 2011 when she made a conscience decision to lose it and keep it off for good. ...

We're hearing reports that both Pixar Pals Countdown to Fun and Disney Channel Rocks will end on April 6 with no replacements to follow.

From what we understand, the performers in both attractions were notified of the change already by Disney's Hollywood Studios' Entertainment department.

The other rumor we are hearing is that the cancellation of both events is because they're going to work on backstage roads so the floats cannot move around.

If the reports are true, this would mean there will be no afternoon parade in Disney's Hollywood Studios for the foreseeable future.  Pixar Pals Countdown to...
