Here’s a look at what’s happening in Orlando, FL this week. The Police Experience takes over at EPCOT, Long Lost Friends Week returns to Magic Kingdom, Transformers The Ride in 3D is open at Universal Orlando, and all month long the Florida Mall is open late!
The Police Experience in Concert at EPCOT July 14-20
As part of EPCOT’s Sounds Like Summer concert series tribute band The Police Experience will perform 3 times nightly at 5:30, 6:45, and 8:00pm at the America Gardens Theater. The concert is included with regular park admission so you definitely don’t want to miss it! We suggest going to the late show so you’ll still have enough time to ride the newly redesigned Test Track and catch the fireworks which begin promptly at 9pm. More info: DisneyWorld.com.
If you missed the tribute to the Eagles last month at EPCOT don’t worry we had our camera’s out and ready. To see pictures and videos from the event find us on Facebook.
Long Lost Friends Week Returns at Magic Kingdom July 15-21
Thanks to votes cast by Disney’s blog readers rarely seen Disney characters will come to life this week on Main Street U.S.A in Magic Kingdom. Parents will get a blast from the past as they meet their childhood favorites while younger fans will have a chance to meet lesser-known Disney characters like the gang from Robin Hood, pictured below, Chicken Little, Brer Bear and Brer Fox, and many more!
