Disney on Instagram: A dream comes true
While the social network has always offered a wide range of attractions and monuments, a majority of the Americans have had the dream of having Disney on Instagram. Apparently, this has attracted loads of visitors to the USA. Some of these locations include Florida’s Universal Studios, New York’s Times Square, the Grand Canyon, Golden Gate Bridge, the Empire State Building and Brooklyn Bridge among others.
Paris and London also have a share of dominance on Instagram, given that the French capital’s Eiffel Tower is also featured in a couple of posts. Paris monuments the likes of the Louvre, and Notre-Dame Cathedral have also been rated alongside London’s Big Ben, which is the highest-ranking British site. The Vatican takes the 20th position with its 942,907 posts.
Much more about Walt Disney World
While it has become almost a norm to have tourists lose thousands of dollars to invalid tickets, some of the big themes parks in Orlando are fighting back this bug. Everybody is entitled to an incredible deal according to Lt. Bob Stephens of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
To gain this, Walt Disney World has made the scanning of fingers of young children a must lest their tickets are reused. Children of ages 3 to 9 have not been scanned previously, but this now becomes a thing of the past. Universal and SeaWorld have also been using the biometric finger method to combat abuse of tickets.
Nonetheless, the new entry of Disney on Instagram is expected to give the industry a new look altogether. Meanwhile, the company’s last trading session closed at $93.85, witnessing a decline of $0.17 or 0.18%.
