It’s the final official weekend of summer at the Disneyland Resort and that means the Summer of Heroes promotion is ending soon to make way for the upcoming Halloween Time season. It was a sweltering hot weekend but the combination of weather plus block-outs made for parks that were delightfully less crowded than one might expect for a three-day weekend.

Meet Jake… from Galaxy’s Edge; he was at the #D23Expo

At the D23 Expo 2017 this past weekend, we had the opportunity to meet JAKE.

PICTORIAL: Holiday weekend, low crowd levels, changes to Pirates, Adventureland, and more!

June Gloom was not going to put a grey hue on the Fourth of July weekend at the Happiest Place on Earth.
