20190421_081738

Easter Sunday continued last weekend’s trend of light crowds and pleasant weather making for a good, good, good, good time at the Happiest Place on Earth.

The Disneyland Resort continues celebrating Mickey and Minnie’s 90th Anniversary with the Get Your Ears on Celebration festivities and food options, Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival serves out its final dishes, and Project Stardust continues tightening planters and widening walkways.

The Adventureland entrance marquee has been removed and a new one should arrive soon. Meanwhile, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge continues at a fever-pitch to open next month and Pixar Pals parking structure speeds along to open as quickly as possible. Of course, a merch run awaits at the end and much more in this latest park pictorial. ENJOY!
