What’s the one ride you could go on forever and never be tired of it? Take a look at a few attractions that are different every time you go. (Before you click through, can you guess one of them?) (via TouringPlans)

What’s on the Menu at the 2017 Flower & Garden Festival
OK, we’ll admit it. We love the festivals for the FOOD. Now that every Epcot festival features food booths, we say, keep those festivals coming! Here are all the food booths and menus this year. (via DFB)

DisneyQuest Closing July 3
We knew it was coming, but now we have an official date. Go see it while you can, because it will soon be closed to make way for the NBA Experience. Since we’re huge video game fans and meh on basketball, we see this as a crushing tragedy. (via Attractions Magazine)
