If you haven’t noticed yet, you will soon.

Today is HUGE – for ALL of us.

Sure, Disney+ launches today, and a cold front is expected to bring big changes to the forecast a little later, but most important of all: It’s launch day!

I’m not talking about a rocket. I’m talking about the new and improved ClickOrlando.com. Click on any of the links below to check it out.

Here’s what’s happening on (the new and improved) ClickOrlando.com:

Remains found in Amber Alert case

Crews have been searching for days in the case of a missing 5-year-old Florida girl at the center of an Amber Alert, and on Tuesday, search teams uncovered human remains in a wooded area of Alabama. Find out what investigators are waiting to learn and what it could mean for the case.

Do you have a Ring doorbell?

If you don’t, perhaps it’s on your holiday shopping list. The devices can be really helpful in protecting homeowners, catching criminals and even capturing funny moments on camera, but because it’s life and there always has to be a “but,” it would be reasonable to question how secure the video cameras really are. See the hack a security company was able to pull off and how Ring responded to it.

Wastin’ away again in Margaritaville

"Margaritaville" singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett (born Dec. 25, 1946, in Pascagoula, Mississippi)

You may feel like that’s what you’re doing once I tell you Jimmy Buffett has rescheduled his Orlando concert – for more than a year from now. Find out the new show date and the reason for the delay.

‘This is what dreams are made of’

Lizzie McGuire said it best with that set of lyrics, and while I don’t think she was talking about the launch of Disney+, I’m sure that’s how Disney fans must feel knowing the new streaming service is now available – with a Lizzie McGuire reboot, might I add. Get the details on the launch and find out what comes with a subscription. What are you watching first?!

Who’s ready for a road trip?

Not just any road trip, a magical holiday road trip to visit the ‘world’s largest Christmas light maze.’ You know, the one I’ve been talking about since, like, July. Well, it’s finally a slightly more acceptable time to start talking about Christmas, and I’m just about ready to get in line for opening day. Who’s with me? Find out what holiday magic visitors can expect to see and how soon they’ll be able to see it.

It’s getting’ (chilly) in here

So put on all your (fall) clothes. This one may have been a stretch, but I’ve squeezed so many song lyrics into today’s newsletter that you can’t tell me you’re not at least somewhat impressed. Anyway, you heard me: It’s getting chilly. Like, a high below 70 degrees chilly. Check the full forecast to find out how long the chill will last.

Like I said, you should notice some changes to ClickOrlando.com pretty soon, if you haven’t already. It’s going to be faster, easier to use and much more mobile-friendly. So go ahead, play around for a bit, and get comfortable with the site. Then, if you want to learn more about the changes, click here, or tune in to News 6 Wednesday at 9 a.m. and I’ll break them all down for you then.

I hope you love it as much as we do. 😊
