This bucket is available in both parks at participating popcorn carts. – https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2023/03/28/a-new-popcorn-bucket-is-coming-for-disneys-100th-anniversary/

Disney Vacation Club members will have a new place to hangout in Disneyland coming later this month. The Disney Vacation Club Star View Station – a Member Lounge is scheduled to open on April 19th in Tomorrowland on the second floor of the Star Wars Launch Bay. The theming in this location is really good and will be a great place for DVC members to relax and recharge. – https://dlnewstoday.com/2023/03/breaking-disney-vacation-club-member-lounge-at-disneyland-park-to-open-in-april/https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2023/03/30/opening-date-announced-for-the-newest-disney-vacation-club-lounge/

The single rider entrance of Space Mountain has changed once again. After the single rider line returned earlier this year going through the Lightning Lane entrance, it has now been relocated to the exit of the attraction. – https://dlnewstoday.com/2023/04/space-mountain-single-rider-line-re-routed-through-exit-at-disneyland/

A post online from a former Imagineer gives us a better idea of a creature that guests would have been able to ride in Star Wars Galaxys Edge before it was deemed over budget. Frank Mezzatesta confirmed this on Twitter, along with some concept art of the experience. Elee, the name of the creature that guests would have taken a ride on, would have carried 6 passengers around a small area of the land. – https://dlnewstoday.com/2023/04/former-imagineer-confirms-elee-a-large-creature-that-could-carry-guests-around-star-wars-galaxys-edge-was-scrapped-due-to-budget/

Weeklyteers who wanted to have a “key to it all” are now out of luck. Bob Iger confirmed that the Premier Annual Pass, which offered holders the ability to visit both Disneyland and Walt Disney World would not be returning. The pass was available for just over $2,000 a year before it was discontinued due to the pandemic. – https://dlnewstoday.com/2023/04/breaking-bob-iger-says-disneyland-walt-disney-world-combination-premier-annual-pass-will-not-return/

Magic Band collectors be on the lookout for new Magic Band designs at Disneyland. The new designs feature Yoda, Mickey Mouse, Marvel Comics, and more. The new designs are all $44.99 each, and available around the resort. – https://dlnewstoday.com/2023/04/new-yoda-marvel-comics-mickey-mouse-and-more-magicband-designs-debut-at-disneyland-resort/

Fans of the Disney Channel Original Movie “Prom Pact” were enjoying Disney California Adventure last week. The cast had breakfast at Napa Rose, then spent the day enjoying the attractions around DCA. – https://www.micechat.com/352070-disneyland-update-rolling-heads-strollers-easter-eggs/

Easter is this Sunday, and there are a few things that guests can do around the resort. For Easter dining, Goofy’s Kitchen and Storyteller’s Cafe are offering brunch and dinner. The Grand Californian Holiday cart is also offering some sweet treats. As we have reported previously, there is a ton of Easter treats at the candy shops around the resort as well. Finally, the eggstravaganza is still going strong with three different hunts between Disneyland, DCA, and Downtown Disney. – https://www.micechat.com/352070-disneyland-update-rolling-heads-strollers-easter-eggs/

Something new has “grown” into the lobby of the Grand Californian. A large, live tree has appeared in the middle of the lobby with no explanation. MiceChat thinks that the tree is to celebrate Earth Month. – https://www.micechat.com/352070-disneyland-update-rolling-heads-strollers-easter-eggs/

Once again Minnie Mouse has vacated the lawn in front of Main Street Station and Mickey has moved back in. It seems that each year for Women’s History Month Minnie may be making an appearance going forward. – https://www.micechat.com/352070-disneyland-update-rolling-heads-strollers-easter-eggs/
