MyMagic+ Rollout Delayed
According to the Orlando Sentinel... "Walt Disney World's
billion-dollar plan to outfit theme-park visitors with wireless
rubber bracelets and get them planning more of their trips in
advance has fallen behind schedule.
At a minimum, it will likely be several more months before all of
the giant resort's customers can use "MyMagic+," which includes a
new reservation system allowing visitors to book ride times weeks
before their vacations and microchip-embedded "MagicBands" that act
as all-in-one park tickets, room keys and credit cards."

in early November, Jungle Cruise at both Disneyland park and Magic

the Skippers have grown homesick for the holidays, so they’ve added
holiday cheer to the Jungle Cruise queue and boathouse with
decorations that have been mailed to them from home (plus a few
they’ve created themselves). The Skippers have also added a slew of
new jokes to their tours that are the perfect way to get guests in
the holiday spirit. Additionally, Jungle Cruise boats have been
renamed with the holidays in mind, and if guests listen carefully,
