Hi there! Welcome to our weekly roundup of the most interesting theme park news around the Walt Disney World Resort, the Universal Orlando Resort, SeaWorld Orlando and other theme parks.

Weekly News Roundup - Kangaroo Habitat at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay

  • The interactive kangaroo habitat, Kangaloom, has officially reopened at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay! Home to 29 kangaroos, eight wallabies and one wallaroo, Kanglaoom has gotten a complete makeover and offers an even closer look at your favorite marsupials. The "kangaroo highways" allow them to move freely within the habitat with plenty of space to bounce around. While the experience is only available to guests ages 5 and up, younger guests can watch all of the action through a newly installed observation window.
  • If you're planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation next year, hotel stays and Theme Park tickets for 2025 are available now! You can save some green by booking hotels and purchasing tickets through Undercover Tourist. Plus, Disney World will introduce a brand-new perk for on-site hotel guests, starting with stays in 2025. Resort hotel guests will receive a complimentary visit to either Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park or Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park on the day of check-in.
