Magic Key holders won’t likely have an opportunity to go to the parks the rest of this calendar year as the reservation calendar has no availability. For those who want to buy a ticket, there are more options open. Mostly for park hopper tickets. – https://www.micechat.com/341757-disneyland-news-photo-update-what-could-be-worse-than-chapek/

Guest visiting Downtown Disney the week before Christmas may want to look into having Breakfast with Santa! Catal Restaurant has some limited availability on December 17th, 18th, 23rd and 24th. The event includes pictures with Santa, a stuffed animal for each child, family-style breakfast, bottomless Mimosas, a hot cocoa cart, personalized stockings for kids, carolers, and more. Tickets are $110 per adult and $50 per child. – https://www.micechat.com/341757-disneyland-news-photo-update-what-could-be-worse-than-chapek/

Disney100 doesn’t officially launch until next month, but the merchandise is already available at Disneyland, Walt Disney World and online at shopDisney.com. Reports from Weeklyteers who were in the parks noted that some of the merchandise was selling out quick, without even seeing it on other guests walking around. – https://www.micechat.com/341116-disney100-platinum-merchandise-collection-disney-parks/

Guest utilizing the Genie+ service at the parks will notice some changes that just recently launched. Lightning Lane reservations can now be swapped to another reservation without first having to cancel the existing reservation in case the Lightning Lane that you were swapping to becomes unavailable, you won’t lose the original booking. Reservations can also be modified to remove members of a party without having to cancel. Note that these changes do not apply to individual (separately paid) Lightening Lane reservations as those are non-refundable and not eligible for modification. – https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2022/12/08/new-genie-changes-now-live-on-disneyland-app/#more-752147

A complimentary reusable holiday tote bag is now available for Magic Key Holders this holiday season. Key Holders can pick up the bag under Silly Symphony Swings in Disney California Adventure. The bag is cream colored with red lettering that says “Magic Key Disneyland Resort.” Guests must present their Magic Key pass and a photo ID to get the bag. – https://dlnewstoday.com/2022/12/complimentary-reusable-holiday-bag-now-available-to-disneyland-resort-magic-key-holders/?

We have runtimes for the two new nighttime shows coming to the resort for the Disney100 celebration. “Wondrous Journeys,” the new fireworks show will run 13 minutes long, and “World of Color – One,” the new World of Color show will run 23-24 minutes. Wondrous Journeys will feature nods to every Walt Disney Animation Studios film to date. World of Color – One will feature how a single action creates a ripple that can grow into a wave of change. – https://dlnewstoday.com/2022/12/runtimes-announced-for-disney-100-years-of-wonder-wondrous-journeys-and-world-of-color-one-nighttime-spectaculars-at-disneyland-resort/?

Aviation fans will want to take notice of the Grizzly Peak Airfield plane that has just returned from refurbishment. The plane was taken to Flabob Airport in Riverside, California and painstakingly restored. A complete paint job was done and lights were added to the interior to show off the work done inside. – https://www.micechat.com/341757-disneyland-news-photo-update-what-could-be-worse-than-chapek/

Disenchanted stars Amy Adams and Maya Rudolph celebrated the release of the movie on Disney+ by visiting the parks recently. The Disney Parks Blog posted a video of the two enjoying the park for the day, meeting characters and sharing in a few surprises, which you can check out at the link in our show notes. – https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2022/12/amy-adams-and-maya-rudolph-celebrate-the-release-of-disenchanted-at-the-disneyland-resort/?CMP=SOC-DPFY23Q1wo1208220052A
