INTERCOT Runs For ThyCa at Disney World’s 2016 Marathon Weekend - Join Us!

In 2013, after getting the all clear from his doctors following his battle with thyroid cancer, John Yaglenski decided to use the power of the Internet community he built to raise awareness and money to support thyroid awareness and research. John runs INTERCOT.com, one of the largest Disney vacation planning websites on the Internet.

INTERCOT’s community banded together with #runICOT, an annual gathering at Walt Disney World’s Marathon Weekend. With dozens of runners and supporters in Orlando for the events, and thousands participating at home through social media and daily podcasts, #runICOT became a unique opportunity for a community to show how kindness and encouragement can change lives.

This year, INTERCOT is proud to partner with the ThyCa: Thyroid Cancer Survivors' Association, Inc. for #runICOT 2016 to support thyroid cancer awareness and research. From Wednesday January 6th through Sunday January 10th 2016, the INTERCOT community will gather at the annual Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend, right through the heart of many Walt Disney World icons and you're invited to join in the fun!

Confirmed: Adventureland's New Restaurant

The new restaurant (formerly Adventureland Verandah), will be tentatively be called the “Skipper’s Cantina”, themed around the Jungle Cruise attraction. The rumored back story: Seems the skippers are not making enough money driving the boats and need to open a restaurant for some extra cash. Current thought is that it will operate similar to "Be Our Guest" in that it may be counter service for lunch and table service for dinner. Disney's goal is to open in November, 2015.

It's not been announced right? We'll announce that we're changing the name but we won't announce what we're changing it to." Iger stated. With changes in store rumored to expand on both the Pixar and Star Wars franchises, it's not surprising, however no further comment was made during the meeting.
