Disney News and Links: Week Ending in July 17, 2011.

Scuttle's treasure hunt in the Journey of the Little Mermaid.

Since I never have any time on Monday mornings, I thought I'd switch news and links to Sundays.  Here's (very brief) a list of what's going on this week in Disney World.

Scuttle will have a role in Journey of the Little Mermaid, set to open sometime in late 2012.  He'll be part of an interactive queue that will allow guests to search for treasure on the beach.

It looks like Lumiere will be part of the Be Our Guest restaurant.  He'll be pushed around on a cart similar to the one used for Remy in Chefs de France.  I enjoy Remy a lot at Chefs and I think that since Lumiere, unlike Remy, can speak and is very a funny character, this should also be a lot of fun. 

The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that the current Dumbo won't be closed until the new "dueling Dumbos" are open in the new Storybook Circus.

Tiffany remembers Storytime with Belle in the Magic Kingdom.

I'm on record as not being a huge fan of character meals because they can be too hectic. Guest blogger Erin joins the Disney Food Blog to discuss ways to make them a little easier

If you happen to be near the Grand Floridian, you might notice the walls that have gone up around the construction site of the Grand Floridian DVC, also known as "the building which shall not be spoken of." 

Hey, don't forget the sumblock!  Kathy with a personal story of why you need to re-apply, no matter who you are.

Lisa is more than just a Disney fan--she's a gourmet cook and bartender, so you can trust her when it comes to food. Here, she shows you how to make your favorite drinks from Epcot.

Disney Babies Blog goes to Via Napoli. I'm so obsessed with this place.
