Weeklyteers in the parks on Memorial Day may have seen something different and wondered what it was all about. At Tiana’s Palace and Blue Bayou there were hero tables setup to honor missing heroes. They had a slice of lemon on the bread plate to remind us of the bitter fate of those who will never return, a pinch of salt symbolizing the tears endured by those who sacrificed all, an inverted glass for those who cannot toast with us, and an empty chair, representing a seat that remains unclaimed at the table. – https://wdwnt.com/2024/05/disneyland-memorial-day-missing-hero-tables/

Construction in Downtown Disney is coming along nicely. On the west end of the shopping district, the future security area is nearing completion, along with Din Tai Fung. Parkside Market is still a ways away from being complete, but is making quick progress. – https://www.micechat.com/387375-disneyland-update-beautiful-fantasies-overwhelming-nightmares/

An entire area in Disneyland is undergoing work from the ground up! Critter Country, which closed a few weeks ago, has had it’s walkways torn up, and there is a lot of work being done. The reopeneing date of the land has been pushed back “to be announced.” – https://www.micechat.com/387375-disneyland-update-beautiful-fantasies-overwhelming-nightmares/

A new droid has come to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to narrate the Season of the Force version of the fireworks. “Fire of the Rising Moons” debuted as an alternative musical score for the nightly fireworks in Batuu. An R-1 droid named Bard has now arrived to accompany the display with a narrative. Bard and the “Fire of the Rising Moons” show will continue after Season of the Force on nights with fireworks. – https://www.micechat.com/387375-disneyland-update-beautiful-fantasies-overwhelming-nightmares/
