We have some Tomorrowland news! However, it isn’t as exciting as it sounds. Disney Vacation Club members will have a new lounge in Disneyland. Star View Station will have a mid-century space theme and have areas for seating, device charging, free wi-fi and more. It will be located on the second floor of what is now the Star Wars Launch Bay. This points to the liklihood that a Tomorrowland renovation, if there was one, would not include knocking down this building. – https://www.micechat.com/331420-disneyland-news-fancy-new-dvc-lounge-headed-to-tomorrowland-next-year/
Magic Keyholders have some additional discounts available from September 21st through October 14th. At certain locations around the resort, the merchadise discount has been increased to 30%. For a full list of locations where the higher discount is available, visit Disneyland.com, or the link in our show notes. – https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2022/09/01/special-discount-announced-for-magic-key-holders-in-disneyland/
As we reported on previously, some areas around the resort are transitioning to terf and moving away from water-hungry natural grass. Two highly visible areas were just converted and look pretty good. The Haunted Mansion, which just returned in it’s holiday form had it’s grass replaced, and arguably the most visible grass around the floral Mickey in front of the train station on Main Street has also transitioned to the new terf. – https://www.ocregister.com/2022/09/01/disneyland-rolls-out-the-green-carpet-with-more-artificial-turf-around-the-park/
With the return of Halloween Time at Disneyland, the monsters are taking over Mission Breakout once again. Guardians of the Galaxy: Monsters After Dark is back this year. For those of you who may not know, after 4pm the attraction is taken over by monsters and becomes a little more scary and thrilling. – https://www.micechat.com/324041-disneyland-halloween-time-and-oogie-boogie-bash-guide-2022/
Somehow we had completely passed over what the gingerbread house design was going to be this year in the Haunted Mansion Holiday! This year’s design features Lock, Shock, and Barrel, the mistivious trick-or-treaters from Nightmare Before Christmas using a guillatine to cut some cake. – https://www.instagram.com/p/CiDKnZlNREn/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=
Something new this year for Halloween is the Mickey and Friends Halloween Cavalcade. The cavalcade features a lot of characters, with heroes and villains represented, in their Halloween costumes as they go trick-or-treating down the parade route. – https://www.micechat.com/331802-disneyland-news-photo-update-everybody-scream/
The villains are really throwing quite a dance party in Tomorrowland each evening. From 7-11pm each night, a DJ will play some spooky tunes while dancers, villains, and guests dance the night away. There is a break from 9:15-10pm during the fireworks to be aware of. – https://www.micechat.com/331802-disneyland-news-photo-update-everybody-scream/
One of the most fun and unique things about getting photos from PhotoPass photographers is the magic shots available. For the Oogie Boogie Bash, there are two new options. The first is Zero, Jack Skellington’s ghost dog, and the other is Oogie Boogie himself as a shadow over the full moon. – https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2022/09/06/these-exclusive-disney-magic-shots-are-positively-ghostly/
As with most holidays celebrated at the resort, there is more new collectibles available for Halloween Time. First up is a new Mickey Pumpkin Globe Sipper, which features the pumpkin Mickey like on Main Street. The globe sipper is available at various quick service locations for $20.79. Fans of Coco and specifically Dante will want to pick up the straw clip that features the colorful dog at Cochina Cucamonga in Disney California Adventure for $7.99. – https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2022/09/05/disneys-new-halloween-collectible-is-a-cup-and-a-snow-globe/ and https://dlnewstoday.com/2022/09/dante-from-coco-straw-clip-now-available-at-disney-california-adventure/
