- World of Frozen is opening to the public on Monday at Hong Kong Disneyland, after soft openings last week.

- Universal Studios Florida have installed a new sign for their upcoming DreamWorks land, that will debut sometime in 2024.

- High winds in Southern California appear to have contributed to an incident where a light post collapsed in Town Square on Main Street USA at Disneyland that left three people injured. One woman with an apparent head injury was taken to a local hospital, while two others were treated at the scene.

- Universal Orlando brought back its annual holiday celebrations on Friday, including Grinchmas, Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and its Macy's holiday parade balloons.

- Dinosaurs are taking over at Legoland California. The Carlsbad theme park announced that Dino Valley will be taking over the current Explorer Island land next year. This will replace the two recently closed rides Safari Trek and Fairy Tale Brook. They will be replaced by two newly Dino themed rides in Duplo Little Dino Trail and Explorer River Quest. The land also will include the current Coastersaurus roller coaster as well as the Dino Dig.

- The annual TEA Thea award winners were announced this week, with SeaWorld Yas Island, Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind at Epcot and experimental restaurant Eatrenalin at Europa-Park being among the honorees.
