Pixar Fest is coming in quick! Decorations for the festival are going up all around the resort. Last week, we talked about the decorations in Downtown Disney, this week they are showing up in both parks! Very colorful bunting has appeared on the lamp posts along Main Street in Disneyland, and Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure. Each lamp post has a different Pixar character at the top. – DISNEYLAND UPDATE: Goodbyes, Last Hurrahs & New Horizons! (micechat.com)

With PixarFest just around the corner, there is another dining option coming to Disney California Adventure. With the launch of “Better Together: A Pixar Pals Celebration,” there will be a dessert package available to guests. The package includes reserved seating for the parade, and a selection of Pixar-inspired foods, desserts and cheeses, with unlimited soft drinks and bottled water—plus coffee and a specialty mocktail. The package is $69 per guest. – https://www.micechat.com/384351-cuisine-with-character-disneyland-resort-pixar-fest-food-guide/

Some new items are also launching for Pixar Fest that is just amazing! Doug, from Up! is available as a popcorn bucket for Magic Key Holders, and the Guitar from Coco popcorn bucket will be available for all guests. – https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2024/04/11/2-new-disney-popcorn-buckets-are-coming-soon/#more-925040

We have some new information about the new dining locations coming to Downtown Disney in the near future. Paseo, Centrico, and Tiendita will be opening in the next few weeks according to the Disney Parks Blog. Din Tai Fung will be opening this summer, and new Steakhouse and BBQ concepts will be coming as well in the former Tortilla Jo’s footprint. – https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2024/04/new-culinary-delights-coming-to-downtown-disney-district/

Another location in Downtown Disney is undergoing some changes. The popular Marceline’s Confectionary is expanding. During the construction, there will be a Marceline’s cart in Downtown Disney selling treats. – https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2024/04/new-culinary-delights-coming-to-downtown-disney-district/

Some interactivity has come to the construction walls at the Haunted Mansion. MagicBand wearing guests can tap on specific tap points on the walls to hear sounds from the attraction. There are also QR codes to access the PhotoPass Lens options in the Disneyland App. – DISNEYLAND UPDATE: Goodbyes, Last Hurrahs & New Horizons! (micechat.com)

An interesting observation was made by the crew over at MiceChat this week. Some lamp posts at Jolly Holiday, Rancho del Zocalo, and the Pirates of the Caribbean bridge have been removed. This is likely related to the lamp post blowing over a few months ago in Town Square. – DISNEYLAND UPDATE: Goodbyes, Last Hurrahs & New Horizons! (micechat.com)

With Tiana’s Bayou Adventure winding down construction in Walt Disney World, the Ambassadors from the resort showed off some new Minnie Ears. The ears are navy blue with gold details and artwork from the attraction. No date for when these will be on sale or coming to Disneyland. – SURPRISE!
