The resort has been seeing some major issues with pipes. We have been following the work being done in Adventureland from a burst pipe near the entrance. The restrooms have been closed and the construction walls have been growing! Currently there is a small pathway in front of the Tiki Juice Bar to allow guests in and out of the land. Last week, a different pipe burst under the Storytellers Cafe dining room! The resurant had to be cleared and some reservations cancelled. Crews were called in and had to dig a hold to address the issue! Currently one side of the dining room is open. – https://www.micechat.com/363640-disneyland-update-crowd-crush-pipes-pop-holiday-happenings/

As we approach the official opening of San Fransokyo Square, more details have been popping up! Along with more artwork decorating the buildings, new koi fish wind turbines are being installed! The first is now floating above Rita’s Turbine Blenders. – https://dlnewstoday.com/2023/08/photos-koi-fish-wind-turbine-installed-atop-ritas-turbine-blenders-in-san-fransokyo-square/ https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2023/08/02/dates-announced-for-the-holiday-season-at-disneyland/

With Halloween creeping in, Disney has announced what they have in store to celebrate the winter holidays! The food and fun filled Festival of the Holidays, Viva Navidad, and World of Color- Season of Light are all returning to DCA. Over in Disneyland A Christmas Fantasy Parade, Believe in Holiday Magic, and the Holiday Time guided tour will be back too. The Holiday Season at Disneyland is November 10th through January 7. – https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2023/08/2023-disneyland-resort-holiday-season-dates-and-details-revealed/

Rancho del Zocalo has discontinued its Mobile Order services! This was a bit surprising to us since the resort has really been pushing mobile order, however it is a welcome change. When mobile order was in place, one whole counter and kitchen area was devoted to mobile order while the other was just for standby. We hope this change will greatly help the overall flow and wait times for this location! – https://www.micechat.com/363640-disneyland-update-crowd-crush-pipes-pop-holiday-happenings/
