Parks News: Disney World Gets Cars Land Cones; Orlando Lands WWE Wrestling Center

It’s time for the Frog Family’s weekly roundup of Disney and Orlando theme park tidbits from the interwebs.

We love comments! Drop us a line below if you have something to share.

This week’s highlights:

  • Chili Cone Queso at Marketplace SnacksFor those of you who’ve long drooled over the cone options at Disney California Adventure, you can now find a number Cars Land cone creations — like the Chili Cone Queso — at Marketplace Snacks at Downtown Disney.
  • We’ve also got scrumptious new details on L’Artisan des Glaces, an artisan ice cream and sorbet shop coming to France at Epcot in mid-June that will feature fresh ingredients made in-house.
  • It’s not exactly theme park news, but it is entertainment. The WWE announced it is opening a new 26,000-square-foot training center — with seven wrestling rings and a sound stage — in Orlando. Tad has already asked me if he can shoot video!

  • SeaWorld Orlando is bringing in live penguins for the Miami Dolphins’ Fin Fest as part of its Epic Voyage Tour ahead of the opening of its new exhibit/attraction Antarctica.

  • Speaking of Antarctica, we took a look at construction progress Saturday while we were at Viva La Musica. Here is one of the pics!

  • The Disney Parks Blog caught up with “Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show” driver Eduardo Marques, Jr., who will be competing at ESPN’s X Games Foz do Iguaçu.
  • Over near Universal Orlando, a new Hash House A Go Go has sprung up. If you don’t have one of these chains near you, the restaurant offers “twisted farm food” for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner.
  • Mardi Gras 2013Universal’s Mardi Gras is drawing to a close, with All-American Rejects as the final performance for this year.

  • Universal released the full lineup for this year’s Rock the Universe, a Christian music festival held Sept. 6 and 7. This year’s lineup includes Switchfoot, Chris Tomlin and Casting Crowns.

  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom turns 15 on Monday (also Earth Day). To mark the occasion, the Orlando Sentinel has put together a quiz to test your AK knowledge. If you don’t get them all right, you’ll be in good company ;) I’m not revealing my score, but let’s just say Mommy Frog got more right than me.

  • I leave you with this spectacular time-lapse video of the Animal Kingdom’s Tree of Life coming to life, so to speak.

That’s all for this week. Until next week, happy planning!
