Mickey and pirates and scares, oh my! Orlando Sentinel tourism reporters Dewayne Bevil and Katie Rice discuss the return of an updated “Fantasmic” to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Universal Orlando’s plans to close five KidZone attractions, an early Halloween Horror Nights announcement and a new opening date for Legoland’s Pirate River Quest boat ride. “We love new things, even the old new things,” Dewayne shares as he reassures listeners that key parts of the spectacular remain and that E.T. is not closing.
