For Weeklyteers who have been out to Walt Disney World and used MagicBands, the implimentation at Disneyland may confuse you. When they arrive sometime this fall, front gate cast members will continue to use the iPhones to scan the MagicBand. Also, instead of the fingerprint scan Disney World uses, Disneyland will continue to use photos. – https://www.micechat.com/334644-disneyland-update-fall-ing-scale-ing-plans-derailing/
A big, green, gamma radiated Avenger has started making appearances at Avengers Campus in Disney California Adventure. The Hulk, which was previewed and announced to be coming to Avengers Campus, has begun greeting guests in front of the Avengers Headquarters building. What makes this character greeting so unique is the large size! It seems that there are some kinks to be worked out, but that was probably the point of the limited time appearances. – https://twitter.com/Disneyland/status/1573003685298597888?cxt=HHwWgMDTyZCht9QrAAAA and https://www.micechat.com/334644-disneyland-update-fall-ing-scale-ing-plans-derailing/

Weeklyteers who are going to be at the resort soon can take a photo with a new Hocus Pocus 2 photo op in Downtown Disney. The location is a new one for a photo op and is sort of out of the way.
