Some of you might have caught the Disney Parks live stream of the return of the Main Street Electrical Parade on Friday. If not, you can check out the broadcast on the Disney Parks YouTube channel. The fan favorite parade made it’s return to Main Street and looks as good as ever! – https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2019/07/watch-disneyparkslive-stream-of-main-street-electrical-parade-from-disneyland-park-aug-2-at-855-p-m-pt/ and https://www.micechat.com/232413-the-main-street-electrical-parade-returns-to-disneyland/
Along with the parade, some Electrical Parade inspired treats have been released. Some of the highlights include a colorful crispy treat at the Candy Palace, a Fantasia waffle bowl sundae at the Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor on Main Street, a Pineapple coconut parfait at the Jolly Holiday, and the amazing looking Main Street Electrical Parade cake at the Plaza Inn. – http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2019/08/02/magical-news-main-street-electrical-parade-themed-treats-are-available-now-in-disneyland/#more-258123 and https://www.micechat.com/232413-the-main-street-electrical-parade-returns-to-disneyland/
After you grab some treats, head into the stores to pick up some new merch with the parade’s return. The goodies include tees, hats and tumblers. Most exciting for me is the limited-edition print and the hand-drawn Elliot image. You can find these souvenirs from the return of this iconic parade at Disneyana and the Disney Showcase. – https://www.micechat.com/232321-disneyland-resort-update-new-boo-electric-too/

Select media were invited to see an early showing of the new Villainous! show coming to Paradise Bay this Halloween. As we reported before, the show will follow a new character created specifically for the show, Shelley Marie. Shelley must decide on a costume for Halloween and wonders if she could be as strong as some of the Disney villains that she wants to dress as. She encounters the Queen, Ursula, Dr. Facilier, Hades, Jafar, Maleficent, and more. The show uses fountains, lasers, lights, special effects, and projections to tell Shelley’s adventure. – https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2019/07/a-wickedly-fun-reveal-world-of-color-nighttime-spectacular-villainous-debuting-at-oogie-boogie-bash-a-disney-halloween-party-at-disney-califo/ and https://www.micechat.com/222580-oogie-boogie-throws-a-villainous-bash-this-fall/
The Oogie Boogie Bash isn’t just going to cater to adults, there will be plenty for the kids as well! They can trick-or-treat with Mickey and Friends in the Disney Theatre in Hollywood Land, play in the Villains Grove over at the Redwood Creek challenge trail with sound, lights and shadow. The Frightfully Fun Parade is great for all ages, plenty of Treat Trails all over the park, and finally Villainous! – https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2019/08/a-splendidly-spooky-time-for-kids-at-oogie-boogie-bash-a-disney-halloween-party-at-disney-california-adventure-park/

With the Haunted Mansion’s 50th anniversary this week, there are some new items that will be available in the parks. Starting August 9th, then the mansion officially turns 50, some new apparel, collectibles, and accessories will debut. There are some “Host a Ghosts,” which are jars that have Constance, the Hatbox ghost, and others on them that light up? when you tap on them. Of course there are also some really awesome ears, t-shirts, Pandora charms, and more. – https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2019/08/ghoulish-gifts-and-mortal-mementos-to-commemorate-haunted-mansion-50th-anniversary-at-disneyland-park/

Fuel Rods have been available in the park for a long time now with the promise that you pay once and get unlimited exchanges of your depleted fuel rod for a fully charged fuel rod. Outside of Disneyland, the Fuel Rod company has started charging $1-$3 for exchanges. This likely hasn’t come to Disneyland because of contracts, but could in the future. – https://www.micechat.com/232321-disneyland-resort-update-new-boo-electric-too/
A new sipper has some to Alien Pizza Planet in Tomorrowland. The Alien themed sipper comes with a straw and handle for easy use while jetting off all over the park.
