Lights, Motors, Action! In-car View

Remember this attraction? It was a fast-paced action adventure that used specially designed cars, jet skis and motorcycles in a high speed pursuit.

Coronavirus and Its Affects on Disney

As you all probably know, Disney World is closing its parks tonight. We know Disneyland had a huge farewell Friday night as guests left the park. Check out the video below. Disney is making the right choice here by closing its doors to Guests in order to protect everyone and implement the social distancing we are all asked to do. But, how much does it hurt?
