PICTORIAL: Temps soar, snow falls, Marvel builds, Runaway Railway plows, and High School Musical+?
It was a scorcher of a weekend as the Disney Holidays continue at the Disneyland Resort and existing projects continue overtaking the happiest place on earth.
Our pictorial this week drops in on Sandy Claws from The Nightmare Before Christmas and he is greeting guests this year with Sally. Plus, we’ll get a look at Mickey’s Runaway Railway and Avengers Campus Marvel expansion. We’ll also get an updated look at Project Sparkle in Tomorrowland plus other projects and goings on around the resort.
Of course, a merch run awaits at the end plus more in this latest park pictorial. ENJOY!
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.
There’s a special magic at Disneyland each year, the spirit of the season can make all dreams come true and now through January 6, 2020 you can experience the Disney Holidays at the Disneyland Resort.
Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway
The Disney Holidays are well under way… even if Anaheim was looking at temps in the mid 90s on Sunday!
You know it’s a good day when you are granted audience with Cruella DeVil!
Strings have been strung across Main Street, USA. That means garland is making its way over to the merriest place on Earth!
Walls are finally down around Plaza Inn revealing smaller planters and wider walkways.
Some of the new planters don’t yet have their fences. You can see on the right side of the photo the new flooring where the planter used to extend.
It’s a shame they can’t stay that way, it looks great.
Drill holes are ready for new fencing to be placed.
The fence-free grass areas are reminiscent of the early days of Disneyland when planters similarly were not fenced in.
The entrance of Tomorrowland is ready for the impact of nightly crowds waiting for fireworks and parades.
This final bit of walls remain at the entrance. Notice the curb-free perimeter of the hub which should make it much easier for wheel-bound guests to traverse.
The buildings behind the entrance remain behind scaffolding and scrims.

These traveling carts are a disease. They’re spreading across DCA.

The Holiday Stuffing Mac & Cheese at the Festival of Holidays is a tasty treat. Rich and flavorful.
The Salisbury Steak with veggies served over green chile mashed potatoes with toasted white bread at Flo’s V8 Cafe are a phenomenal treat. So good that we hope they become part of the regular menu rotation.

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!
