You might even get some pro-tips of where and when it's best to get those free Mickey Premium Bars during the brief 3-hour party window.

It's time for a news round-up! Disney's announced A LOT in the last month or so, so we figured we'd take a step away from the parks to chat about how these changes are impacting future trips to Disney World. We cover the new Genie app experience, Genie+, Lightning Lanes, Annual Pass tiers and pricing, the proposed Star Wars Starcruiser schedule, a small mention of Boo Bash, and the "now-Not-So-Magical Express...

That's right folks, it's eatery time. Sure, we tried to add all of the eateries in The Official Disney List For Cool Kids Who Like Good Stuff ® - EPCOT Edition and realized our mistake about a quarter of the way through World Showcase. But it's time to fix that list and give those restaurants their own eatery bracket!

So join us as we fix 👏 that 👏 list 👏and then run through the bracket to determin...

This week on Rope Droppin' we've reached the back half of the World Showcase in our home country: America! before stopping by the Italy pavilion. Just one big attraction this time: The American Adventure and boy is it a long one, but it is packed with animatronics, so maybe it's worth the stop? Otherwise, get ready for some tummy-filling barbecue and beer, followed by tasty Italian pastas and pizza.

"So raise the curtain and light the lights!" This week we're outside the bubble with the 1990 television special: The Muppets at Walt Disney World, aired on the Magical World of Disney. Being a massive Muppets fan, Danielle *might* have forced this on the World of Commotion crew, but how could we pass up a nostalgic visit to the parks with the Muppets? AND we get to see the duo we've been waiting for: Rizzo and Char...

This week, we're heading over to the Morocco and Japan pavilions! We get a short history of the origins and funding for Morocco and stop by the many eateries, like Spice Road Table and Restaurant Marrakesh in this beautiful area. Japan's another food-filled extravaganza, but we of course couldn't forget the shopping at the massive Mitsukoshi Department Store and the amazing Taiko Drummers.

Bonjour! This week, we make our way past the International Gateway (yes, there is boat-talk) to stop by the France Pavilion. There's food, and more food, and pastries! We take a long luxurious nap through Impressions De France before...hate-watching(?) The Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along. We have feelings.

But let us know what you think!

This week we chat about Disney's online (and sometimes offline) digital experiences across go.com, My Disney Experience, Play Disney, and of course: Disney+. It's been a long road since the early days of go.com and while we rely heavily on the newer apps like My Disney Experience when visiting the parks, we can't exactly overlook some of those glaring pain points.

We've been dropping hints about some gripes with ...

From Star Wars, to Disney Animation, to Pixar, and Marvel, we cover it all.
