By the time you hear this, a new item will likely be sold out. Trader Sam’s has a new holiday mug that went on sale at 6 am through mobile order on November 29th. The new mug will only be available on that date. The mug looks like a red wine barrel, with bits of snow that has fallen on it, with the Trader Sam’s logo and other nautical and holiday ornamentation. – https://www.micechat.com/374193-disneyland-update-igers-wish-big-crowds-its-a-small-nude-after-all/ https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2023/11/24/disneys-new-trader-sams-tiki-mug-is-available-for-one-day-only/

Preparation is already underway for the Candlelight Processional taking place this weekend at Disneyland. We already covered tips on how you can experience this holiday tradition if you aren’t an invited guest. If you are going to be in the parks this weekend, be ready to have some congestion at the front of Disneyland before, during, and after the processional. – https://www.micechat.com/374193-disneyland-update-igers-wish-big-crowds-its-a-small-nude-after-all/

Magic Key Holders have some new holiday merchandise to choose from. A phone case, headphone case, and magnet are available with a holiday design featuring a vintage looking Mickey and Minnie, with some gifts, and some other characters on the phone case only. The items range from $14.99 to $34.99. – https://dlnewstoday.com/2023/11/new-magic-key-holiday-merchandise-available-now-at-disneyland-resort/

With the debut of the new Disney Animation film Wish this weekend, a new popcorn bucket and sipper has arrived at the parks to celebrate. The popcorn bucket is themed after the character Valentino from the movie, and the sipper is Star. Valentino is a small brown goat wearing an orange shirt. The Wish Star sipper is shaped like the Star character and features a yellow painted face on a sparkling yellow body. – https://dlnewstoday.com/2023/11/photos-wish-valentino-popcorn-bucket-star-sipper-arrive-at-disneyland-resort/

Fans of the Dapper Dans may want to add a new item to their gift lists. A new knit polo shirt in the theme of the Dapper Dans has arrived on Main Street in Disneyland. The polo is $78, and features a repeating red pinstripe pattern across the front and back, stopping at the sleeves to simulate the appearance of a Dapper Dans vest. – https://dlnewstoday.com/2023/11/dapper-dans-knit-polo-shirt-available-at-disneyland-park/

Fans of the oversized candy bar at Pym Test Kitchen may be disappointed at the following news. The Choco Smash Bar is now the Choco Smash Cake. Gone is the candy bar shape and presentation, and is now in the form of a slice of cake, made from the same ingredients. MiceChat reports that the size of the cake slices are all over the place, but will hopefully stabilize as cast members get used to the new format. – https://www.micechat.com/374193-disneyland-update-igers-wish-big-crowds-its-a-small-nude-after-all/

An unusual sight happened on “it’s a small world” this weekend. On Sunday afternoon, a guest who was reported as being under the influence of something climbed out of an “it’s a small world” boat, stripped down to his underwear, and climbed onto some of the sets in the attraction. The guest was escorted out of the attraction and arrested by the Anaheim Police Department. He was charged on multiple accounts. – https://www.micechat.com/374193-disneyland-update-igers-wish-big-crowds-its-a-small-nude-after-all/
