The best place to experience this show is in Galaxy’s Edge at the Black Spire Spaceport, the TIE Echelon docking platform, and the speeder garage. Music from John Williams will play as part of the show. – https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2024/03/guide-to-season-of-the-force-at-disneyland-resort/

It appears that the very last thing to be completed at Toontown is finally done! Donald’s Duck Pond finally opened this last week. The area features a small splash pad, and a shower in the rear part of the area to rinse off when done playing. – https://www.micechat.com/382788-disneyland-news-toontown-troubles-spring-surprises-seasonal-shenanigans/

Weeklyteers who love bubbles will love this story. A new interactive bubble blower is available in Toowntown and features cranks and buttons that are functional.

Blue Milk at Galaxy’s Edge has been something that some fans love, and some fans don’t. Well, coming soon, you can get some at your local grocery store! TruMoo Blue Milk will be arriving soon at grocery stores around the US. The carton says “Blue-Colored Vanilla Lowfat Milk with other flavors,” which is different than the parks version which is dairy free. – https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2024/03/21/star-wars-blue-milk-is-coming-to-grocery-stores/

One of the most iconic Imagineers has confirmed they are working with Imagineering again. Joe Rohde is back on the Imagineering Campus leading a series of master class work sessions for current Imagineers. There is no word on if he has any involvement in any current or future projects. – https://www.wdwmagic.com/other/walt-disney-imagineering/news/25mar2024-joe-rohde-confirms-he-is-working-with-walt-disney-imagineering.htm
