The long-awaited opening of the Adventureland Treehouse happened last week and the results are amazing! There are a TON of new animation effects in the different areas of the treehouse, and the lighting is gorgeous. Guest reaction to the rethemed attraction is positive, with long lines to go into the treehouse over the weekend. – https://www.micechat.com/372513-disneyland-update-exciting-openings-maintenance-concerns-holiday-crush-pin-rules/

With the reopening of the Adventureland Treehouse, more Society of Adventurers and Explorers items have appeared in Adventureland. At the Tropical Hideaway, there are a couple new paddles with the names of SEA members on them. One of the paddles is Aya Kouame-Beauciel, who is the author of the note on the Daughter’s desk in the treehouse. – https://www.micechat.com/372513-disneyland-update-exciting-openings-maintenance-concerns-holiday-crush-pin-rules/

The old Downtown Disney stage has been taken down because the new stage is out from behind construction walls and ready for performances. The new stage has a rolling grass sitting area in front of it, surrounded by trees. The new stage is permanent, while the old stage was temporary. – https://www.micechat.com/372513-disneyland-update-exciting-openings-maintenance-concerns-holiday-crush-pin-rules/

Over at the soon-to-be Pixar Place Hotel, the Great Maple Restaurant has an opening date! November 15th the location will open for walk-in dining and guests. Reservations will be open starting November 21st. The menu is also already online for guests to look at and plan for their first visit. – https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2023/11/11/the-full-menu-has-been-released-for-disneys-new-great-maple-restaurant/

With the beginning of the holiday season, some more walls came down in Toontown. Out from construction walls is the fountain in the center of the land, and it is working! The fountain opened with Toontown earlier this year, but there were some issues that caused it to be reworked. – https://www.micechat.com/372513-disneyland-update-exciting-openings-maintenance-concerns-holiday-crush-pin-rules/

As with anything that Disneyland celebrates, there is merchandise. Of course, the Festival of the Holidays is no different and there are a lot of items with this year’s logo on them. Items include spirit jerseys, a blanket, ornaments, pins, and more. – https://dlnewstoday.com/2023/11/full-list-with-prices-of-2023-festival-of-holidays-merchandise-at-disney-california-adventure/

A small addition that makes a big difference has finally been added to the newest land in Disney California Adventure. The Port of San Fransokyo sign that appeared in the earliest concept art for the area has arrived and looks amazing! – https://dlnewstoday.com/2023/11/photos-port-of-san-fransokyo-sign-finally-installed-at-disney-california-adventure

Not one, not two, but THREE new characters have arrived at Avenger’s Campus! Carol Danvers, Kamala Khan, and Captain Monica Rambeau are making appearances in the land to celebrate the premiere of The Marvels, the newest Marvel movie that features the trio. They are going to be in the park for a limited time, so act soon if you want to catch them. – https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2023/11/10/3-new-marvel-characters-are-coming-to-disneys-avengers-campus/

Some updates to one of the Disneyland policies will make some parkgoers happy, and others not so much. Pin trading rules have been updated to restrict professional traders from taking up all the sitting space in Frontierland. Traders are now limited to a table space and can bring only one case of pins to trade. – https://disneyland.disney.go.com/faq/parks/pin-trading/
