Happy Friday! Here’s what’s been going on this week in the world of Disney Parks.

Two Sumatran tiger cubs were born at Animal Kingdom. Fewer than 500 of this species exist worldwide. You can see them along the Maharajah Jungle Trek in the next few months.

Disney World is transitioning from offering mini toiletries in hotel rooms to these dispensers. People are kind of freaking out.

Check the replies to that thread for just a taste of the hubbub. Personally I’m excited for one less thing to inevitably clutter the cabinet under my sink, but to each their own.

Mobile ordering has expanded to 15 locations across Walt Disney World, but you still can’t pay with your dining plan.

Though there was a recent update to the My Disney Experience app that will show you all your dining plan credits, the two systems are not yet integrated.

If you felt left out looking at snaps of everyone’s adorable Mickey-adorned coffee drinks at D23, you’re gonna want to head to Disney Springs.

This map of all the transportation options at WDW is fantastic.

I went a tiny bit crosseyed trying to follow all its paths, but huge kudos to WDWFocus for creating this. Check out this link for options to purchase a high-res, printable image or a framable copy.

This year’s exclusive Sorcerer’s card for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (which starts tonight!) is perfection.

Please someone send me one so I don’t end up spending $90 to get into the party just for this.

And since Disney World’s Halloween season kicks off today, what better time to add some more names to the narration lineup for Epcot’s Candlelight Processional.
