Hello and welcome to the all new News Round Up Thread for 2020! This is a continuation of the old threads. This thread is for sharing the smaller news stories that happen around WDW, construction updates, rumors, observations, etc. We try to keep discussion to a minimum here on this thread. If a news story generates large discussion that will be moved to a new thread where more in depth discussion can take place. 2020 is sure to be a great year filled with more construction, announcements, and attraction openings! This thread wouldn't be what it is without the great DIS posters who contribute to it! Here's to great 2020!

    Maybe I’m reading into this, but in the second paragraph it says “As you can see, Mickey and Minnie are at the wishing well and we thought it was the perfect artwork to begin our countdown series and a new year of magical wishes!” I can’t do it from my phone, but “new year of magical wishes” is italicized. Think that means anything? I know they had “Year of a Million Dreams” before, so maybe this a new kickoff to the 50th that will last 2 years?

    Or did I have too much champagne last night? 😂

    I miss the fastpass lanyards from year of a million dreams. I got lucky at Disneyland and got them at least 3/4 times throughout the promotion.

    Those words are definitely in italics so could mean something .... Also could just be emphasising it as like their "New Year's" beat wishes / greeting

    I remember those from WDW and they were a way a lot of people would "pay it forward" and give their u used ones to other guests. We got more that way than from CMs

    We did get the special Ear Hats though - we were seated to ride Star Tours and CMs came in and handed them out to everyone in the ride vehicle before the ride started

    Wishes they would do more little things like that - doesn't cost them much and to this day is something I vividly remember
