SNEAK PEAK AT ALADDIN LIVE ACTION + TONS OF FOOD NEWS!

Happy Friday, October 12th Everyone!
In Park News, in DCA at Pixar Pier, we got our first glimpse and Luxo Jr, although it’s covered right now, we know its now there! It can be found on top of the Pixar Pier Sign. Rumor has it that Luxo Jr will shine down on guests walking into Pixar Pier. So we shall see.

OMG!!! It was AMAZING!!! The Movie Hits theaters May 24th, 2019.

We have an official date now for the Return of Matterhorn Bobsleds. It will return from its refurbishment on November 16th.

In Marvel News, Scarlett Johansson to get $15 MILLION Dollars for Black Widow Solo Film.

WORLD OF DISNEY NEWS – The new section along with the signage Debuted this past weekend and we could not get over the lines outside the store just to go in and get a look.

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!

If you haven’t seen or heard, the New Coco themed ears that hit the parks have been a craze, selling out resort wide within hours. We got to see them right as they were being restocked, then later to find out, they sold out again, within 2 hrs. Other ears that his the parks this week are the new Haunted Mansion ears. I don’t know that they are getting as much love as the Coco ones but people online are loving them.

We just found out yesterday that VAMPERINA will be making her way to DCA this Fall. She will be available for meet and greets starting September 7th, The first day of Halloween at the parks! Also, she will be making an appearance during the Frightfully Fun Parade on Mickey’s Halloween Party Nights. But that’s not all, later this year, she’ll be the newest member of the Disney Junior Dance Party in Hollywood Land in DCA.

Ok speaking of Disney Junior Dance Party… we went today for the first time in YEARS with Elaine & Amy… share our experience.

If the Enchanted Tiki room is Your thing, make sure you take advantage this weekend, because Starting next week, Monday, August 6th. Enchanted Tiki Room will be closed, with no set return date.

We know Matterhorn is down for refurbishment, no set return date but according to a cast member, it will be for about 4 months.

We learned this week that The Jungle Cruise Movie Starring Emily Blunt & The Rock is now in production and set to hit theaters, October 2019. We are sure this will bring more traffic back to The Jungle Cruise.

This just in, A Whole New World Awaits, Disney’s Live Action Aladdin will be making its way into theaters May 24th, 2019. We knew it was coming and the cast had already been revealed but now we have a date. How will you think it will compare?
