The walls in Toon Town have been adorned with new decorations. The punny new graphics on the panels are a great fit in Toon Town, like the panel that states “Our Remodel is Popping at the Seams!” with popcorn bursting out the sides, since it will be the El Capitoon theater.  – https://www.micechat.com/305131-dateline-disneyland-monorails-trams-magic-key-fail/

Outdoor signage has begun to appear for the new Plaza Point Holiday Shoppe on Main Street. A new quote is above the door, declaring “Where Every Day is a Holiday,” gold window lettering has appeared on the windows facing Main Street with various sayings, and the new Plaza Point Holiday Shoppe marquee has gone up. – https://www.micechat.com/305131-dateline-disneyland-monorails-trams-magic-key-fail/

Some Disneyland Resort Cast Members made some magic for one if their own recently. Joe Johnson was making his dream of being a cast member come true working at Disneyland on the Storybook Land Canal Boats. He wanted his family to come and visit from Georgia for his first days on stage, but it looked like that would not be able to happen. Joe’s trainers, and other cast members worked with Joe’s father to create some magic and make the visit a reality. Joe’s father was able to meet him on the job that day and make his dream a reality. – https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2021/10/disneyland-resort-cast-make-magic-for-fellow-cast-member/
