PICTORIAL: Guardians, Star Wars Land, plus a visit to Club 33 and more!
It is shaping up to be a perfectly lovely Easter Weekend at the Disneyland Resort with crowds hopping, construction projects buzzing, and spring blooming wherever you go.
This week, we’ll get another look at the continuing saga that is the construction site for the Star Wars themed land at Disneyland. Plus, we’ll take another look at continuing facade enhancements at the Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT attraction in DCA.
Also on this trip, we’ll take a few munch stops including Uva Bar and Club 33 to celebrate my 33rd birthday! Plus, we’ll take a final look at the Disney Egg-Stravaganza and Disney California Food & Wine festival which both end after this weekend.
We also have a special Club 33-edition of our merch run along with a few other purchasables. All of this and more in our latest pictorial! ENJOY!
The Disney Egg-stravaganza is offering three different hunts respectively located at Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, and Downtown Disney. All you have to do is buy your $5.99 Disney Egg-stravaganza Maps but this is the final weekend!
Last Chance to Wine and Dine
This is the final weekend the Disney California Food and Wine Festival, take a look at our INSIDE AND IN DEPTH report on the event.
The Disney Junior channel is getting some new representation at Disney California Adventure this summer with the new Disney Junior Dance Party. Out is the staged puppet show and in its place is a “musically infused, interactive concert format that involves guests directly in the experience.”
A World of Wait
The construction site for the upcoming Star Wars themed land continues to buzz with activity as structures reach higher and higher towards the sky. But there’s a whole lot of waiting for the land to be ready. In the meantime, Disney released a new video offering teases and peeks at the wonder that awaits. Find that below along with our roundup of photos from the construction site.
Flowers are coming back in bloom on the roof tops of Mickey and Friends Parking Structure.
The First of the Last
We still have a long time before we get to see the new Star Wars land but yesterday we got our first look at footage from STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI. The release came with a new poster which you can see at the link below.
We also found footage from Star Wars Celebration Orlando that seemingly shows the late Carrie Fisher on the set for the film! New hairstyle and potentially a new outfit too?
Work continues to move at breakneck pace as the park scurries to get its Frontierland-facing work completed for this year which will accommodate the return of the Disneyland Railroad, Canoes, and other classic favorites.
A peek at the work going on.
More exciting than painting the roses red, they’re painting the boulders taupe.
The Star Wars Land is going to be MASSIVE!
Bridge over the entrance into “Star Wars Land” as it’s unofficially being called for now. The Disneyland Railroad will be crossing over that bridge.
Strange rock formations continue to rise.
Not much visible progress on the new Big Thunder Trail.
Not much different on the new pathway. Wood still needs to be stained/painted.
Noticed a boat hiding in plain sight.
Fantasmic! support still floating around during the day.
Sailing Ship Columbia remains in dry dock.
Work continues to progress on the exterior of the upcoming Tower of Terror redo: Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! We also noticed some testing with the elevator doors opening and camera bulbs flashing.
Noticed the doors were opening and camera bulbs flashing.
You can see through the tarps, the new entrance into the attraction is RIVETING.
Well, it’s covered in rivets at, least.
The sign no longer promotes the Hollywood Tower Hotel Red Car Trolley stop. It’s just a red strip across the top for now.
Around Disney California Adventure
DJ’s Dance and Drive is still a thing.
Celebrating Earth Week at Redwood Creek Challenge Trial.
Tried the DCA Food & Wine Festival Whoopie Pie. It tasted like pancakes with syrup and bacon. But drier. If you love breakfast as a dessert then this is all for you. It was not for me.

33 Years at Club 33
I had the opportunity to spend my 33rd birthday with a group of friends at the Club 33 Salon Nouveau! What a treat!
I got a button and a birthday card from the restaurant! Below is a posting on Instagram of the back of the button. If you haven’t already, follow us on @MouseInfo on Instagram to stay up to date with our latest!
A look at the lovely birthday card. It was signed by several staff members with a HAPPY BIRTHDAY note inside. So cute!
Swordfish a la Meunière with asparagus and roasted potato was quite lovely.
Time for dessert! From Left to Right: Apple Galette with candied walnut gelato, Manjari Dark Chocolate Budino, and on the far end a White Chocolate-Covered Gooseberry!
They were selling a replica door ornament of Club 33‘s original entrance. Best of all? It featured the BACKSIDE of the door to so what it looked like on the inside! Had to have it, even if it was $33.
A look at more of the Club 33 merch….
Cute Mad Tea Party hair clip.
