We have officially made it through the first week of March. Nearly one year ago was when lives were turned upside down as the Covid 19 pandemic started to hit. It is crazy to reflect back on what a year it has been. Things are definitely starting to move in the right direction and Disney World has remained open since the reopening in July. It looks as though Disneyland Resort may also be heading toward reopening and we are so excited. Every week we at Chip & co. and Disney Addicts bring you the latest Disney news, tips, and tricks. Here is our Weekly Roundup in case you missed anything this week!
The Best Places to Shop on Your Disney World Vacation– There are so many things to look forward to about a Walt Disney World vacation. Visiting parks, the amazing food, and of course shopping!

Sugar Rush Needs to Replace Tomorrowland Speedway in the Magic Kingdom– For decades, the Tomorrowland Speedway has given children a chance to drive their very own car on a fun and scenic track.

After all, we can certainly think of one better replacement…a speedway resigned after Wreck-It Ralph’s Sugar Rush game!

DuckTales, Darkwing Duck, Goof Troop, and Gummi Bears were some of the classic Disney Afternoon shows of the 1980s/1990s era.
