PICTORIAL: Gay Days, Avengers, and Stardust plus a whole lot of FROZEN 2 and SKYWALKER

IMG_4069

The Happiest Place on Earth was shining bright with rainbows this weekend as the park played host once again to Gay Days Anaheim. As part of the festivities, a slew of colorful merchandise and treats were released.

Meanwhile, Halloween Time roared on at the Disneyland Resort while Project Stardust projects with Tomorrowlands entrance re-do also moves along. The Avengers Campus Marvel themed land also continues to see rapid construction time tables long with the Mickey and Friends and Pixar Pals parking structures.

We’ll stop in to Oga’s Cantina for a drink or three and also catch a menu change at Docking Bay 7. There’s also a huge merch run for you this week with all the new must-haves for both FROZEN 2 and STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER which both dropped this week. All of this and much more in our latest park pictorial. ENJOY!

Plant-Based Menu Expansion

Due to positive response to plant-based menu items over the past year or so, Disney Parks will be expanding its efforts to provide more flavor, innovation, and creativity with its menu offerings with even more plant-based offerings around the globe. In short, ALL major quick and table service restaurants will soon be serving up plant-based options at both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort. The expansion will include hundreds of sweet and savory creations.

Around Disney California Adventure

Walls oddly STILL remain at the entrance of Buena Vista Street around the Red Car Trolley station.

20191005_121606

Decorated cookie to look like a donut. If the visual is familiar that’s because this year’s snack-themed D-lish line used such a donut on several pieces of merchandise.

20191005_121721

20191005_104314

The ugly temporary looking red cart that we’ve seen in Buena Vista Street for a few weeks has shifted farther up the trail and now menaces the beautiful waterfalls of Grizzly Peak.

20191005_121032

The area near Grizzly River Run is also marred by the un-themed merch cart.

20191005_121257

It looks like the family driving the vintage vehicle parked at the Refreshment Point have finally moved on up the trail.

20191005_121315

I wonder where the family has ventured off. In actuality, we saw the vehicle from the trams sitting on a flatbed backstage.

No Mickey all summer and now into fall.

20191005_120347

We still haven’t had the chance to try the new menu at Lucky Fortune Cookery. Have you?

Maple-Bacon Bread Pudding ($5.39) from Pacific Wharf Cafe this bread pudding topped with whipped cream, maple glaze and candied bacon. We didn’t taste much candy on the bacon but it wasn’t needed as the bread pudding and the whipped cream on top were more than enough sweet in the dish. The salty-sweet combo works great and definitely large enough to share OR enjoy as a dessert-breakfast option.

Around Disneyland

20191005_122246

Walls are up at the Main Street Opera House although the attraction remains open.

20191005_122350

Queen of Hearts (still with a mole for some reason) and looking almost nothing like her animated self is greeting guests during Halloween Time.

20191005_124215

Walls are up around the planters in front of the Plaza Inn restaurant.

Walls remain up at the Tomorrowland entrance as rocks continue to be removed and the walkway re-sloped and curb free.

20191005_124424

This photo captures quite a bit. You can see the new castle paint job in the back but also that some rocks are removed, some are not, walls are up, Gay Days red tees, Halloween Time balloon. No mistaking what exact weekend this photograph was taken.

20191005_125636 20191005_125610

Scaffolds and scrims remain at both sides of the entrance of Tomorrowland.

20191005_125828 20191005_125833

There’s also walls still up near Space Mountain.

20191005_141102

Loaded Fleet Fries ($9.99) from the Galactic Grill features loaded waffle fries topped with slow-cooked BBQ, pulled pork, cheese, chipotle ranch and cream cilantro-lime coleslaw. Great as a meal on its own or as one fancy side dish or appetizer it’s a solid choice that shouldn’t disappoint.

20191005_124643

Lighting rigs up for what we’re hearing is Dancing with the Stars filming to take place in the park.

20191005_125448

Similar rigs were also up at the front of the park near the Mickey Jack-O-Lantern.

Matterhorn Bobsleds still partially covered.

Looks like there’s some new trees in Fantasyland.

20191005_162637

Wait, you see it right?

The Felucian Garden Spread (and Braised Shaak Roast) are now both available for lunch and dinner. The former was a lunch exclusive and the latter a dinner exclusive. This is a welcomed change but comes at the cost of losing the Ithorian Garden Loaf plant-based meal.

The right-most loading station has now gone behind walls at Mickey and Friends.

20191005_101409

The middle loading zone has reopened but we weren’t able to see what was changed. The leftmost station is now being used for loading.
