    Hello Moms & Dads. I just read that The Great Movie Ride & Ellen's Energy ride are closing on August 13th Will the final day to experience these be the 12th or will they be open on the 13th? Would love to ride one last time.

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Linda!

    As Walt Disney himself once said: “Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious...and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” With this mindset, it is not too surprising that The Great Movie Ride and Ellen’s Energy Adventure will be saying goodbye to bring in new, exciting Attractions to Walt Disney World Resort. The last day of operation for both rides is in fact August 13th, 2017 (subject to change). I certainly hope that you get to hear Ellen say “Stupid Judy” or watch the gangsters have their fight scene just one last time before they close their loading bays for good.

    There are so many new and exciting additions and transformations coming to Walt Disney World Resort! I feel as though every time I take a peek at the Disney Parks Blog I am delighted with new wonderful news! Toy Story Land, a “Guardians of the Galaxy”-inspired attraction, Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge, just to name a few!

    Have a magical day and come and visit us again soon!
