Star View Station will have a mid-century space theme and have areas for seating, device charging, free wi-fi and more. It will be located on the second floor of what is now the Star Wars Launch Bay. This points to the liklihood that a Tomorrowland renovation, if there was one, would not include knocking down this building. – https://www.micechat.com/331420-disneyland-news-fancy-new-dvc-lounge-headed-to-tomorrowland-next-year/ Magic Keyholders have some additional discounts available from September 21st through October 14th. At certain locations around the resort, the merchadise discount has been increased to 30%. For a full list of locations where the higher discount is available, visit Disneyland.com, or the link in our show notes. – https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2022/09/01/special-discount-announced-for-magic-key-holders-in-disneyland/ As we reported on previously, some areas around the resort are transitioning to terf and moving away from water-hungry natural grass. Two highly visible areas were just converted and look pretty good. The Haunted Mansion, which just returned in it's holiday form had it's grass replaced, and arguably the most visible grass around the floral Mickey in front of the train station on Main Street has also transitioned to the new terf. – https://www.ocregister.com/2022/09/01/disneyland-rolls-out-the-green-carpet-with-more-artificial-turf-around-the-park/ With the return of Halloween Time at Disneyland, the monsters are taking over Mission Breakout once again. Guardians of the Galaxy: Monsters After Dark is back this year. For those of you who may not know, after 4pm the attraction is taken over by monsters and becomes a little more scary and thrilling. – https://www.micechat.com/324041-disneyland-halloween-time-and-oogie-boogie-bash-guide-2022/ Somehow we had completely passed over what the gingerbread house design was going to be this year in the Haunted Mansion Holiday! This year's design features Lock, Shock, and Barrel, the mistivious trick-or-treaters from Nightmare Before Christmas using a guillatine to cut some cake. – https://www.instagram.com/p/CiDKnZlNREn/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y= Something new this year for Halloween is the Mickey and Friends Halloween Cavalcade. The cavalcade features a lot of characters, with heroes and villains represented, in their Halloween costumes as they go trick-or-treating down the parade route. – https://www.micechat.com/331802-disneyland-news-photo-update-everybody-scream/ The villains are really throwing quite a dance party in Tomorrowland each evening. From 7-11pm each night, a DJ will play some spooky tunes while dancers, villains, and guests dance the night away. There is a break from 9:15-10pm during the fireworks to be aware of. – https://www.micechat.com/331802-disneyland-news-photo-update-everybody-scream/ One of the most fun and unique things about getting photos from PhotoPass photographers is the magic shots available. For the Oogie Boogie Bash, there are two new options. The first is Zero, Jack Skellington's ghost dog, and the other is Oogie Boogie himself as a shadow over the full moon. – https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2022/09/06/these-exclusive-disney-magic-shots-are-positively-ghostly/ As with most holidays celebrated at the resort, there is more new collectibles available for Halloween Time. First up is a new Mickey Pumpkin Globe Sipper, which features the pumpkin Mickey like on Main Street. The globe sipper is available at various quick service locations for $20.79. Fans of Coco and specifically Dante will want to pick up the straw clip that features the colorful dog at Cochina Cucamonga in Disney California Adventure for $7.99. – https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2022/09/05/disneys-new-halloween-collectible-is-a-cup-and-a-snow-globe/ and https://dlnewstoday.com/2022/09/dante-from-coco-straw-clip-now-available-at-disney-california-adventure/ Discussion Topic: D23 Expo – https://d23expo.com/D23Expo_2022_Event_Guide_Map.pdf Oogie Boogie Bash – https://dlnewstoday.com/2022/09/first-look-at-the-2022-oogie-boogie-bash-guide-map-and-trick-or-treat-bags-at-disney-california-adventure/ Halloween Time – https://www.micechat.com/331802-disneyland-news-photo-update-everybody-scream/

The new lounge will be located in the heart of Tomorrowland at Disneyland Park, in the space on the second floor of the Star Wars: Launch Bay building.

Source: Disney Parks Blog Discounts on three older properties for direct purchase DVC has reintroduced discounts for three older properties: Disney's Old Key West Resort, Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort, and Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows. Old Key West and Saratoga Springs currently have a base price of $200 per point while Polynesian is set at $250 per point. The supply of points at these resorts is limited given their "sold out" status. Net prices for Old Key West and Saratoga are on par with Riviera while Polynesian is considerably higher than even Grand Floridian.

There's a New DVC Lounge Coming to DisneylandDisney Vacation Club announced the first Member Lounge coming to Disneyland Resort in California and it is expected to open in the first half of 2023. The lounge will be located in Tomorrowland and be called “Disney Vacation Club Star View Station.” Located on the second floor of the Star Wars: Launch Bay building, the space-themed lounge will be home to a dedicated Disney Vacation Club Member Services team, plus lots of casual seating, complimentary Wi-Fi, device-charging stations and more.Similar to the DVC lounge at EPCOT, the Disneyland lounge will be available to eligible Disney Vacation Club Members with valid park tickets and reservations to Disneyland Park, space permitting. -- Is Disney Really Launching a Membership Program Like Amazon PrimeDisney is reportedly planning to launch a new membership program loosely modeled after Amazon Prime that would offer discounts and perks for combining streaming services, theme park visits, resort hotel stays, merchandise purchases and more.The Wall Street Journal reported on this, so there is some sense of reality behind it. The idea is that Disney would use the membership program to make it more attractive for guests and customers to increase spending on all its products and services. For Disney, it would give more consumer data as to your spending habits and more.So would this mean the retirement of programs like D23? How would DVC and Annual Pass perks stack up against this? --Foodie Guide to Halloween Sweets and Treats at Disneyland ResortHalloween season is on now at Disneyland Resort!

No firm date at the moment, but we will keep you updated once we see it online. – https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2022/05/27/videos-dj-r3x-from-disneys-ogas-cantina-is-releasing-an-album/ Signs outside of the Star Wars Launch Bay in Tomorrowland tease the return of the combined museum/store/photo op. No word yet on when this will reopen, but Cast Members are stationed outside of the location telling guests it should be returning soon. – https://www.micechat.com/322984-disneyland-news-racers-fantasmic-star-wars/ This past weekend, Fantasmic! returned to the Rivers of America to delight guests once again. The projections look clear and bright, the show scenes look fresh, and the show was amazing as always. The best way to get a great seat for the show is to book the River Belle Terrace dining package for $50 per guest, since they are using the same reserved seating area that the Blue Bayou usually uses. Once the Blue Bayou reopens, this area is expected to be shifted to the side more to accommodate the Blue Bayou guests. The Hungry Bear location is across from the Haunted Mansion and offers a side viewing angle for the show. – https://www.micechat.com/322984-disneyland-news-racers-fantasmic-star-wars/ June is here, which means that the busy summer season has started at Disneyland. The Disneyland Forever fireworks show will now play nightly with fireworks 7 days a week. During the non-summer and holiday season, Mickey's Mix Magic was played with projections only during the week, with fireworks on the weekends only. – https://www.micechat.com/322984-disneyland-news-racers-fantasmic-star-wars/ Last week, the most popular attraction in Disney California Adventure had an incident that has caused it to be closed ever since. Video online showed one of the cars on the outside racetrack portion of the attraction stopped and smoking. Though the vehicle never caught fire, the guests in the vehicle were buckled in with smoke coming from the rear. Cast Members did get out to the guests and exit them from the vehicle with no injuries. Disney has closed the attraction to investigate the incident to ensure it won't happen again. – https://www.micechat.com/322984-disneyland-news-racers-fantasmic-star-wars/ In Downtown Disney, food trucks have taken up residence by the old ESPN building to help feed hungry guests. These food trucks are expected to be there until at least July 4th. This is a great idea since the Earl of Sandwich is gone and there is a lack of affordable dining options, especially for larger families. – https://www.micechat.com/322984-disneyland-news-racers-fantasmic-star-wars/ Guests staying at the Paradise Pier Hotel can enjoy one of the hotel amenities again. The pool has finally reopened after a lengthy refurbishment. None of the stores or restaurants are open yet at the location, but it is great to have the pool open so guests don't have to walk over to the Disneyland Hotel to use their pool. – https://www.micechat.com/322984-disneyland-news-racers-fantasmic-star-wars/ Discussion Topic: DLWeekyl Vault: Former Aladdin a Musical Spectacular Genie Dylan Website – http://www.dylanwhite.com/ Instagram – https://www.instagram.com/itsdylanwhite/ Aladdin a Musical Spectacular Final Performance – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=enW48NlXRj4

The return of the biggest nighttime spectacular is just a few days away as we record this episode. Most of the infrastructure has been updated and refurbished to get everything show ready, and the work on the pathways along the riverfront are wrapping up as well. We can't wait to see how the show looks after its long hibernation since COVID. – https://www.micechat.com/322309-disneyland-update-the-cost-of-magic-project-gateway/ A few episodes ago, we talked about the possible value of the Tomorrowland Skyline Lounge where guests can book a spot to have some goodies and watch the fireworks from the top section of the Star Wars Launch Bay. For $60, guests can come and go as they please from the lounge, and are treated to an entree, side, and dessert with unlimited assorted beverages. Food is ordered from the Galactic Grill upon check-in and then brought into the lounge by the guest. A badge and lanyard is also provided. Giant games are also on hand to keep everyone occupied. – https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2022/05/22/review-is-disneys-exclusive-tomorrowland-lounge-worth-the-we-found-out/ Guests who are seeking adventure and salty old pirates won't have to wait too much longer. The Pirates of the Caribbean attraction is not listed on the refurbishment calendar after July 1st, so it could open around that time! Disney has not announced an official date, and there are no dining reservations offered for the Blue Bayou for that time either, but with any luck guests will be celebrating the 4th of July with the swashbuckling pirates. – https://www.micechat.com/322309-disneyland-update-the-cost-of-magic-project-gateway/ Something that Avengers Campus has been missing since its opening last year is more shade and seating. Disney has listened and some covered tables and chairs have been installed next to the Avengers Headquarters. – https://dlnewstoday.com/2022/05/seating-installed-next-to-avengers-headquarters-at-avengers-campus-in-disney-california-adventure/ So this amazing movie came to Disney+ last week and the reviews have been pretty positive. Guests can now meet the stars from the movie at Disney California Adventure. Chip and Dale from the new Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers are appearing at the entrance to Hollywood Land, to the left of the Hyperion Theater for meet and greets. The crime fighting duo are dressed in their classic outfit from the TV show. – https://dlnewstoday.com/2022/05/chip-n-dale-meeting-guests-as-the-rescue-rangers-at-disney-california-adventure-to-celebrate-movie-premiere-on-disney/ We aren't going to cover this too much until things are finalized, but there is a change being proposed by Disney to its cast members to do away with the points system for attendance issues and move to an occurrence system. Very basically, this will make it easier for Disney to let go cast members with attendance issues and makes working at Disneyland less flexible for the cast members. We will keep an eye on this and let everyone know when there is an update. – https://www.micechat.com/322309-disneyland-update-the-cost-of-magic-project-gateway/ Discussion Topic: Disneyana – https://disneyanafanclub.weebly.com/we-are-back.html

The rope bridge that guests crossed over the path to enter the attraction has been taken down, and the tree in the middle of the path which housed the stairs to the bridge has also started to be dismantled. Still no word from Disney on what the re-theme for this former Tarzan's Treehouse and before that Swiss Family Robinson treehouse will be. – https://www.micechat.com/321168-disneyland-news-update-star-wars-construction-change/ Last week was May the 4th, when Star Wars fans have a day of celebration for the universe that they know and love. Disneyland had two of their Star Wars Nite after-hours parties, with one more to come on May 27th this month. Fans that attended seemed to have a really great time dressing up, watching the special fireworks show for the event, checking out all the photo locations, and meeting up with characters throughout the park. Some highlights were the fireworks show, and the Cantina Band on the Rivers of America playing Star Wars classics. – https://www.micechat.com/321168-disneyland-news-update-star-wars-construction-change/ Some of the photo locations that were offered for Star Wars Nite are also there during normal park hours for pictures.

Disneyland Resort President Ken Potrock met with community leaders recently talking about exciting changes coming to the resort, and this was one of the previously unannounced updates. The Pixar theme will change over time as new Disney-Pixar movies come out to keep the hotel fresh for guests. – https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2022/04/news-from-the-disneyland-resort-upcoming-pixar-plans-big-foodie-news-and-more/ The updated hotel theme wasn't the only thing Ken talked about! He revealed more details of what is to come at Downtown Disney. In an interview on the D23 Insider podcast, he said that they are looking at Downtown Disney through the lens of Disney Springs out in Florida and how successful that has been. More diverse options are coming with the addition of Din Tai Fung, a Chinese cuisine restaurant, along with Catal and Uva Bar transforming into a hub of Mexican Cuisine with Michelin-starred Chef Carlos Gaytan. Finally, Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen will be getting a complete overhaul into a more “vibrant California energy” theme. Oh, and Earl of Sandwich will be returning as a pop-up location later this year. – https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2022/04/news-from-the-disneyland-resort-upcoming-pixar-plans-big-foodie-news-and-more/ Last week, we talked about the Halfway to Halloween celebration. Disneyland announced some information on what the spooky holiday will look like this year. The Oogie Boogie Bash will be returning on select nights this Fall, with no firm dates announced yet. Mickey and Minnie will be sporting new outfits this year, showing off their trick or treating attire. – https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2022/04/halfway-to-halloween-announcements-from-disneyland-resort/ Even more entertainment is back at Disneyland! Last week, Disneyland's Royal Theatre in Fantasyland resumed story telling of Beauty and the Beast and Tangled. Currently, there are 6 total showtimes, with 3 shows each for Tangled and Beauty and the Beast. As of the writing of this story, the times are not in the Disneyland app since it is in a soft reopening. – https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2022/04/30/news-storytelling-at-royal-theatre-is-back-in-disneyland/ We have been eagerly awaiting the return of Fantasmic! since the parks closed, but we finally have showtimes!

Good news! Two new trees, which look to be at least somewhat mature have been replanted in the space! – https://www.micechat.com/320733-disneyland-news-more-entertainment-more-construction-more-reservations/ Last weekend, the Disney Junior Fun Fest took place at Disney California Adventure. It was a one-day event on Friday, which started with a parade from Pixar Pier to the Hollywood Pictures Backlot. A stage was setup in the World of Color viewing area where different Disney Junior characters performed for guests and invited media and influencers. – https://www.micechat.com/320733-disneyland-news-more-entertainment-more-construction-more-reservations/ Banana fans rejoice! A new Mickey-shaped beignet has come to the Mint Julep bar for guests to enjoy. This time, the beignet is being rolled in a banana flavored powdered sugar. A 3-pack is $5.49, and a 6-pack is $8.99.

Along with the beignet, a Passion Fruit Mint julep is also available for $5.49. – https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2022/05/01/review-disneylands-new-treat-reminds-us-of-banana-laffy-taffy-in-the-best-way/ The day this episode posts is May the the 4th, an annual celebration for Star Wars fans, playing off the date as May the Force.
