Opening on March 31, The Dress Shop on Cherry Tree Lane will open in the Marketplace Co-op. This shop features dresses and accessories for guests who enjoy "Disney Bounding" - clothes with a nod to specific Disney characters or attractions, without being costumes. The dresses will come in a range of sizes, with select styles offered up to a 3X. Earlier this month, Kiehl's, the skin and haircare company, opened a new shop in the Town Center section of Disney Springs.

Disney Parks Blog gave readers a sneak peek at the construction of Star Wars Lands at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland. The lands will feature two new attractions, "one that lets guests take the controls of Millennium Falcon on a customized secret mission, and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance." And most exciting for me personally - AT-ATs! Star Wars Land will open in 2019.

Satu'li Canteen in Pandora to Offer Mobile Order Option

The Disney Parks Blog gave readers a first look at the menu for the Satu'li Canteen in Pandora, opening May 27. But almost more interesting is that the Canteen will offer Mobile Ordering through the My Disney Experience app! "The fast-casual restaurant will also be the first to offer Mobile Order, a new convenient option to order and pay for meals on-the-go within the My Disney Experience app, allowing guests to bypass the queue to order when they arrive at the restaurant. Using the app, guests can select menu items, customize their order and pre-pay for their meal. When they arrive at the restaurant they will tap an “I’m here” button in the app, which will notify the kitchen to prepare the meal. When ready, guests will be alerted through the app to pick up their meal at a designated window. Additional fast-casual and quick-service restaurants will begin to offer Mobile Order later this year.
