Fans of Mickey and Minnie ears, you will want to hear about this new item coming to Disneyland! Custom Character Headbands, which are already popular in Hong Kong Disneyland, are coming to the original Disneyland! Guests pick a headband, then choose a mini plush (or multiple), then secure the plush to the headband to wear! The Mad Hatter on Main Street and Bing Bongs in Disney California Adventure will carry the new items. – https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2024/04/wildly-popular-custom-character-headbands-coming-to-disneyland/

The Fantasyland Theater is currently home to the Pixar Pals Playtime Party for Pixar Fest. The area hosts a range of Pixar characters including characters from Onward, Luca, Elemental, Up! and more! There are also crafts, a dance party on stage, and great people watching! – https://www.micechat.com/385538-disneyland-update-the-good-the-bad-the-pixar/

Weeklyteers who remember the 50th anniversary of Disneyland might find this next Pixar Fest game familiar. The resort has disguised 50 Pizza Planet Trucks around the resort for guests to find! Guests will need to look everywhere from windows on Main Street, to the shooting gallery, and more! – Disneyland Update: The Good, The Bad & The Pixar (micechat.com)

A couple other parts of Pixar Fest are receiving mixed reviews. The Better Together parade has a ton of characters and a lot of energy from the cast, but is too short at less than 15 minutes. The floats also are lackluster. Club Pixar in the Hollywood Studios Backlot features cast members inviting guests to dance along with characters. – https://www.micechat.com/385538-disneyland-update-the-good-the-bad-the-pixar/

Two of the locations in Downtown Disney are finally open! Centrico and Paseo are open to guests! MiceChat reports that Centrico was good with a lot of great choices and good ambiance. Paseo features two display kitchens where guests can see tortillas and baked goods being made, and entrees in the other. – Disneyland Update: The Good, The Bad & The Pixar (micechat.com)

One of the other locations that was slated to come to Downtown Disney isn’t a sure bet anymore. Rumor has it that Porto’s may not come to Downtown Disney after all. No word on why, but Earl of Sandwich will probably have to move still anyway. – Disneyland Update: The Good, The Bad & The Pixar (micechat.com)
