20190315_084816

Disneyland Resort is humming with excitement not just as Spring Break crowds begin to ascend on the Happiest Place on Earth but also as construction projects continue at fever pitch. From the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge expansion and parking lot coming in by May, to refurbishment projects and “Project Stardust” enhancements around the Resort there’s still quite a bit going on as Disney braces for what is expected to be its busiest year ever on record.

This week, we’ll take a peek at progress on Downtown Disney projects, get a taste of St. Patirck’s Day, visit the new Captain Marvel character experience, and of course a nice merch run for you at the end in this latest park pictorial. ENJOY!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

As we get closer to the May 30, 2019 opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, less and less noticeable change is taking place on the visible parts of the land.

The public won’t get their chance to explore Galaxy’s Edge until June when the new land opens at Disneyland (and then again later in the year a clone of the land opens in Walt Disney World) but Marvel is ready to take you to the planet of Batuu — and specifically the Black Spire.

It’s no secret that the Star Was: Galaxy’s Edge expansion (or unofficially Star Wars Land for the uninitiated) will be an incredible undertaking when it lands at both Disneyland Park in Anaheim and Disney’s Hollywood Studios Park at Walt Disney World and now we have more info (thanks to the fabulous D23) than ever before about the impressive new undertaking opening as early as this summer in California and later this year in Florida!

Earth-Friendly

20190308_130552

As part of the Walt Disney Company’s commitment to reduce plastic waste, the Disneyland Resort has begun to phase out plastic straws in favor of  “Earth-friendly” paper straws that are biodegradable. This is a clear win for the environment but we were worried about the quality of the replacement straws considering less-than-magical experiences with them in the past. We’re happy to confirm that the new straws at Disneyland are possibly the best disposable paper straws we’ve ever used!

MORE INFO: Disneyland begins the switch to disposable straws and they’re actually great!
