Drop what you’re doing and head over to Walt Disney World’s All-Star Movies Resort. You’ll thank us later. It’s time to discover Disney’s next great late-night snack: the all-new Cinema Popcorn Caramel Sundae has arrived!
This sundae starts with a base of caramel popcorn (and caramel sauce), layered with Dulce de Leche ice cream, more caramel popcorn, whipped cream, and another drizzle of caramel sauce. Oh my! It’s worth noting that Dulce de Leche is not among the regular flavors offered and is only available in this sundae.
What makes this the perfect sundae is the balance it has achieved between sweet and salty, soft and crunchy. Every bite can be loaded with ice cream and popcorn, the ideal blend. But dig in fast! The whipped cream on top is piled so high it’s likely to fall off before you find a place to sit.
At $6.99, the sundae isn’t one of the cheapest options on the menu, but it’s definitely the most bang for your buck. We ordered ours in the keepsake mug for an extra $3 (because let’s face it, we only ever want to eat ice cream out of this from now on) and were able to split it and still be satisfied. In truth, the popcorn makes it more filling than a regular sundae, and the caramel adds enough sweetness to satiate your sweet tooth. The only people who won’t like this sundae are the diners sitting at the next table who can’t keep their eyes away.
You can find this sundae over at the World Premiere Food Court, just look for the sign that says “Rialto.” Whether you’re staying at the All-Star Movies Resort or not, you’ll want to make a special trip over to try this one. We’re sure glad we did!

Originally Darth Vader was meeting and intimidating guests when the Launch Bay first opened but was replaced by Kylo when Star Wars Episode 7 came out.

According to a report from TheHollywoodReporter (THR), “The six-and-a-half foot statue, which weighs 188 pounds, consists of 35,119 bricks and took Lego Master Builders 225 hours to design and build.”
The team of Lego Master Builders finished the life-sized statue in time to be revealed for San Diego Comic Con this weekend (July 18-July 22, 2019). Marvel Fans will be able to see the statue first hand on the floor of the convention. So be sure to check your convention maps and have your cameras ready for this fantastic lego sculpture!
The nano-tech lego suit of armor from Avengers: Endgame is even decked out with working light features inside the chest, arm, and gauntlet of the statue! How cool is that!
Iron Man is far from being the first Marvel themed Lego Statue found at popular conventions. Other Marvel characters who have been turned into statues for such events are: The Hulk, Captain Marvel, Thor, Captain America, Thanos, Rocket and Groot, Wolverine, Spider-man, and more.
The inspiration for this years statue comes from the final battle scenes of Avengers: Endgame after a rousing game of hot potato with the new Infinity Gauntlet ends with Tony Stark proclaiming “I am Iron Man.” and snapping back the fallen and destroying Thanos and his armies in what is now being referred to as “The Blip” in the MCU.

In the news, Disney heiress Abigail Disney says she was ‘livid’ about the intolerable worker conditions after going undercover at the Disneyland theme park. Her comments were revealed on the program Yahoo! News’ “Through Her Eyes” Opens a New Window. The heiress said she decided to conduct her own investigation after a distressed worker contacted her on Facebook.
“Every single one of these people I talked to were saying, ‘I don’t know how I can maintain this face of joy and warmth when I have to go home and forage for food in other people’s garbage,’” she told Yahoo!
Disney has shared with us the following statement in response to her comments:
“We generally avoid commenting on such baseless reports like this, but this one is particularly egregious and we won’t let this stand.
We strongly disagree with this characterization of our employees and their experience at Disney. This widely reported stunt is a gross and unfair exaggeration of the facts that is not only a misrepresentation but also an insult to the thousands of employees who are part of the Disney community. We continually strive to enhance the employment experience of our more than 200,000 employees through a variety of benefits and programs that provide them the opportunity, mobility and well-being.
At our parks in Orlando and Anaheim, The Walt Disney Company currently pays its hourly workers an average of $19.50 an hour, significantly above the federal minimum wage. But we understand the challenges workers and families face in 2019 are complex and go beyond the paycheck. That’s why we provide a wide range of benefits and initiatives to improve our employees’ lives at and outside of work: from subsidized childcare to generous leave policies, from convenient access to pharmacies and clinics to free college degrees and vocational training programs for hourly employees.
We recognize the economic challenges facing all working families. And we continually meet with our employees in the process of developing even stronger programs. Still, we’re proud of the work we’ve done to improve the lives of our employees, and of the more than 45,000 jobs we’ve added in the United States since 2005. The men and women who make Disney parks such a special experience for millions of people are dedicated, hardworking and proud, and we will continue to listen to, empower and reward them. That’s what this company has done throughout its history and will continue to do in the future.”

Daisy Ridley Discusses Her Emotional Last Day On Set for Star Wars: Episode IX. She opens up about how she cried through her final scenes and compared leaving set to feeling like she was in a music video.
“I just can’t remember it,” she first admitted. “I remember [director] J.J. [Abrams] making a speech and I sort of remember a couple things he said, like I’m always on time, which I appreciate him saying. And then he went to pass me the mic and I was the last person to wrap. It was my final shot and I’m just crying in the shot… It was incredibly dramatic.”
“Literally can’t remember what I said,” Ridley recalls of that moment when she hugged her costars John Boyega and Oscar Issac. “Hugged a number of people and then got in the car and looked out the window like I was in a music video: tears rolling down my face, hand to the window, thinking about days gone past.”
Daisy Ridley predicts fans will be “very satisfied” with the conclusion to the Skywalker Saga. “Everything we were doing felt like, in the moment, really good,” she stated during the interview.
Star Wars: Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker will be the final installment in what is being referred to as the “Skywalker Saga” of Star Wars, aka Episodes I-IX. The Rise of Skywalker will conclude the over 40 years of storytelling that began with Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, and Han Solo, and is ending with the shared stories of Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, and Kylo Ren/Ben Solo.
Star Wars: Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker premieres in theaters December 20, 2019.

For the first time ever, Sony Pictures’ classic film, Ghostbusters, is coming to “Halloween Horror Nights” at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort – bringing the most memorable scenes, characters and supernatural spirits from one of pop culture’s most iconic films to life in immersive mazes based off the 1984 classic at the nation’s premier Halloween events, starting this September.
Ghostbusters has entertained generations with its comedic yet frightening tale of four paranormal investigators on their quest to eradicate supernatural threats from creating chaos throughout New York City. As the film marks its milestone 35th anniversary, guests will have the unique opportunity to live the action and terrifying scares they have seen in the hit film when it comes to life at Universal Studios’ “Halloween Horror Nights” in Hollywood and Orlando.
In each maze, guests will follow in the footsteps of the Ghostbusters – Peter, Ray, Egon and Winston – as they venture through artfully recreated scenes from the film, including the firehouse, New York Public Library and the Temple of Gozer, as an army of ghoulish spirits, hideous specters and ectoplasm-dripping phantasms attack from every corner. As they delve deeper into the maze, guests will come face-to-face with an array of paranormal creatures, from the voracious Slimer to the all-powerful Gozer the Gozerian and in its ultimate destructor form – the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, to brave the demonic spirits and survive the night.
Universal Studios’ “Halloween Horror Nights” is the ultimate Halloween event. For more than 25 years, guests from around the world have visited “Halloween Horror Nights” to become victims inside their own horror film. Multiple movie-quality mazes based on iconic horror television shows, films and original stories come to life season after season. And, the streets of each park’s event are transformed into highly-themed scare zones where menacing scare-actors lunge from every darkened corner.
“Halloween Horror Nights” begins Friday, September 6 in Orlando and on Friday, September 13 in Hollywood. Additional details about the events will be revealed soon. For more information about “Halloween Horror Nights” and to purchase select tickets at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort, visit www.HalloweenHorrorNights.com.
