As we get closer and closer to the holidays, expect less and less news from Disney outside of the usual "holy crap, there were HOW MANY people today!?!" stories.
We're tracking Hurricane/Tropical Storm/Tropical Depression/Whatever Its Called Today Ida as it moves through the Gulf of Mexico. At the moment it appears to be headed towards Alabama, possibly hitting the panhandle or, unfortunately, New Orleans. Disney seems to be in the clear. Right now, the Weather Channel is reporting that the National Weather Service has issued a "Lake Wind Advisory" which probably means nothing to a lot of you (it warns boaters that gusts on open water are going to be stronger than on land and possibly small enough to flip your boat...in other words, postpone your fishing trip for another day.) The biggest chance of rain is tomorrow with the storms tapering off Wednesday, and an absolutely perfect weekend ahead (high 70's to low 80's.)
Mickey Xtreme has an update on Flamingo Crossing. Yeah, I totally forgot about this thing too.
WDW Magic is speculating that the Lights of Winter may not be performed at Epcot this holiday season, citing the fact that the lights are not in place nor are they even in the usual staging area. It is, of course, also possible that they are in a different staging area or are being installed later than usual this year.
The Daily Disney reports that Mickey Mouse will be appearing in Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade for the first time this year.
In closing, I didn't get a chance to mention it over the weekend but our thoughts and prayers go out to the employees and families of RS&H after the shooting in Orlando on Friday and, while we're at it, to those affected by the shooting at Fort Hood.
