Into the Unknown
Anna and Elsa are donning outfits from the new FROZEN 2, you can meet with them at Disney Animation in Hollywood Land.
The tapestries have also been updated to reflect the new movie.
Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway
Around Disney California Adventure
Walls are up once again in front of Mission: BREAKOUT!
Signage and Cast Members are posted to help direct traffic.
Something seemed missing. A tree maybe? Going crazy.
Around Disney California Adventure
Always love seeing little bits of magic-making in the parks, even when it’s just painting rails and fences!
Mickeys?! Why not Donalds??
Meet me on Main Street.
Tomorrowland entrance continues to evolve. New concept art on the refurbishment walls show what’s to come.
Since Disneyland first opened in 1955, there have been several great, big beautiful Tomorrowland entrances – and its threshold is being transformed once again! As shown in this concept rendering, guests will soon be entering Tomorrowland on a widened pathway lined with elliptical planters that are filled with swirls of colorful flowers and sculptural spires. In addition to being an alluring and more accessible entryway, keen-eyed guests might spot that this new threshold into the future pays homage to yesterday’s Tomorrowlands…
Still missing some railings on some of the new planters.
New posters at Tropical Hideaway are nice but feel unnecessary bordering on cynically crass.
Matterhorn is back to full operation with both sides of the mountain offering bobsled rides.
Still no marquee on Fantasy Faire Gifts.
Smothered Beef ($16.49) at French Market on the left features tender braised beef with creamy mashed potatoes, roasted garlic, and caramelized onion jus served with pesto corn. Incredibly satisfying although the pesto on the corn seems oddly paired. Definitely recommend.
Chicken Mole ($15.49) at Rancho Del Zocalo on the right features seasoned half chicken topped with rich mole, drizzled with sour cream, sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds, and served with Mexican rice and refried beans. Bold, rich, and flavorful! A super solid choice for a meal!
Blue Lump Crab Fritters at Royal Street Verndah are filled with lump crab, cream cheese, herbs, citrus, and herb seasoning and served with cocktail sauce. They’re pretty messy as the filling is pretty runny but the flavors are accentuated by the cocktail sauce. Wouldn’t necessarily recommend these.
Pan Dulce Ice Cream Sandwich ($7.99) at Rancho Del Zocalo features a colorful shell-like Mexican sweet bread with dulce de leche ice cream, cajeta drizzle, and churro streusel. So sweet, so good!
You can still get Haunted Mansion 50th Anniversary treats including the bride’s wedding cake and blue velvet doombuggies.
Around the Resort
The new Downtown Disney decorations add a vibrant pop both by day and night!
New elevators are coming along.
No Mickey sculpture just yet.
New signage mirroring the style of those at the new Pixar Pals parking structure have finally arrived.
Glad this isn’t available in adult size, might actually try to buy.
Star Wars X TOMS
If you’re at Curl Surf in Downtown Disney, you can pick yourself up one of several different kinds of STAR WARS X TOMS shoes. The kind folks at TOMS sent us some shoes in return for sharing it with our readers here on MouseInfo. After we got them in the mail, we couldn’t help but to take them with us straight to Batuu!
Sandy Claws has decided to drop on in for the Disney Holidays at Disneyland! Now through the holiday season he and Sally can be found in New Orleans Square greeting guests.
