Yesterday, two new totem poles were installed at the Canada Pavilion at Epcot , bringing a new dose of history, culture and storytelling to the pavilion. Carved by Tsimshian artisan David Boxley, who previously created a totem pole for the pavilion’s Trading Post in the 1990s, the two new additions each have a unique story to tell. The Eagle Totem Pole tells one of Boxley’s favorite cultural tales, in which a boy finds an eagle caught in a net on a beach and frees it. Years later, when hunger strikes the boy’s tribe, he walks on the same beach, only to find the eagle there waiting for him with food – paying him back for his kindness years ago

As Disney Vacation Club celebrated “25 years and BEYOND” in 2016, you could say 2017 is the year “BEYOND” begins. Fueled by that forward-looking spirit, Disney Vacation Club recently unveiled “ Membership Magic Ever After ,” a colorful collection of extended Membership Extras from 2016, additional offers and opportunities for 2017 and new Disney developments that together will help pen the next great chapter in our community’s collective story. Among the instantly popular 2016 offerings continuing in 2017 are the Member Lounge for Members visiting Epcot (a lofty space on the second floor of the park’s iconic Imagination! Pavilion), complimentary events after hours in Disney Parks (events to be known this year as “Disney Vacation Club Moonlight Magic”), doubled Walt Disney World Resort merchandise discounts (the new 20 percent discount, up from the previous 10 percent discount, is valid at select Disney-owned-and-operated shops at Walt Disney World Resort, Disney’s Vero Beach Resort and Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort ), expanded Walt Disney World dining discounts ( Victoria & Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is now the only Walt Disney World-owned-and-operated table-service restaurant excluded from the 10 percent discount offer) and the waiving of the customary $95 RCI transaction fee (for new RCI reservations made in 2017). New offerings for 2017, meanwhile, include the addition of a proposed 14th resort to the neighborhood ( Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge , scheduled to open in 2017 and not yet fully registered or available for sale), the first Eastern Caribbean Member Cruise (an already-sold-out Aug
