    Hello and welcome to the all new News Round Up Thread for 2019! 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. 2019 is sure to be one of the biggest years for theme park news and events in quite some time! This thread wouldn't be what it is without the great DIS posters who contribute to it! Here's to great 2019!

    Watched the Countdown on ABC - noticed the camera for the performers was strategically placed to catch the video advertisements for Dumbo and Captain Marvel

    I made First Page!!

    Have to say - seeing the livestream of Fantasy in the Sky was very MEH for me. I’m sure it’s neat live with all the pyro but I’d take HEA or Wishes any day over that!

    There was a reallocation of points in each resort. Pretty much across the board studios went up in points (in some cases way up)as did 1 bedrooms. 2 bedrooms and cabins/bungalows went down in some cases.
