Announced earlier this week, As of October 10th, the Disneyland Resort’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa, Storytellers Cafe, discontinued the à la carte option in favor of an all-buffet establishment. Breakfast & Brunch served daily from 7am – 2pm, and Dinner Served 4:30 pm – 10pm. While closed from 2pm – 4:30pm.
We also learned this week that Cuties, known for their orange-like clementines, has become the Official Citrus Fruit of the Disneyland Resort. This new partnership will bring Cuties to many fruit carts and counter service dining locations starting this Fall. Cuties will be offered as a side in kids’ meals at select counter service locations. Additionally, Cuties branding will be introduced at the Disneyland Resort.
In Downtown Disney News, Disney confirmed on Wednesday that they have officially pulled the plug on the New Luxury Hotel that was Planned for Downtown Disney. However, the area will remain focused on shopping, dining, and entertainment. No word as of yet on if the old favorites like Rainforest Cafe, ESPN Zone and The Movie Theater will return or if new ones will emerge.
As you all know, the new 6,500-space parking structure is currently under construction near the Mickey & Friends structure at the Disneyland Resort. This week we found out that along with the new Parking structure, there will be a new pedestrian bridge over Magic Way.
This new bridge will connect visitors from the parking structure—over Magic Way— to the rest of the resort, allowing guests the option to stroll through the Downtown Disney District to the theme parks’ Main Entrance. In addition, the new bridge eliminates the foot traffic crossing the street at Disneyland Drive and Magic Way, providing not only convenience but also greater pedestrian safety and better traffic circulation.
Set to be completed next year, these parking and transportation enhancements—along with other existing parking options throughout the resort area—are designed to dramatically improve parking and traffic flow. The new parking structure is expected to significantly speed up guest arrival by providing a 60 percent increase in the number of access lanes and by adding parking capacity on the west side of the resort. In addition, the tram boarding area will be reconfigured to enhance the transportation experience for guests parking at both the new structure and Mickey & Friends.
Coming this Tuesday October 16th – Trader Sam’s at the Disneyland Hotel will open at 7am for the Exclusive Hatbox Ghost Tiki Mug that will be available for purchase…So I suggest you get there early and I’m sure it will go fast!
