Former Imagineer Shares Early Concept For Attraction

Early concept designs for Gadget 's Go Coaster were recently revealed online by former Disney Imagineer Jim Shull. See the photos, and why Jim says they didn 't go with the original concept for the attraction. Jim Shull took to his Twitter to share a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Gadget 's Go Coaster at Disneyland. Gadget 's Go Coaster is a family-friendly roller coaster themed to Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers. Here is how Disney describes the attraction: Climb aboard

Daily Honored Tradition Returns

For many years, Disney 's daily Flag Retreat Ceremony has become a tradition of honoring and supporting our nation 's military heroes. Located near the entrance of Main Street, U.S.A., in Walt Disney World Florida and Disneyland in California, Guests come to celebrate and thank veterans of the past and present in a patriotic ceremony that touches the hearts of many Americans and out of state visitors from around the world. So, it is only fitting that we share the return of this star-spangled

App Confirms Return Of Holiday Favorite

Not long ago, the Disneyland mobile app showed that the popular attraction the Haunted Mansion would be closed from August 16 until September 2. There was speculation that that closure signaled that Haunted Mansion Holiday would return, though nothing could be confirmed. Well, that has changed, and we now have confirmation that The Nightmare Before Christmas overlay is exactly why the ride closure is happening! While the Disneyland website still does not state that the Halloween Town

A Ton Of Breakfast Items Are Back

When Disneyland reopened after its historic 412-day closure, there were a lot of things that were unavailable - including a number of restaurants that remained closed. One of the biggest things that Disneyland Guests were unable to get was breakfast. There are several Starbucks locations on the property, but Guests wanting to eat there had incredibly long wait times. Well, Disneyland fans rejoice because breakfast is back! Instagrammer Disneyland Tour Guide shared the exciting news with

20 Years Apart Two Tragic Deaths On Matterhorn

There is an undeniable fascination with theme park accidents. There are books, countless blogs and even entire YouTube channels dedicated to them. And it 's no wonder: There 's something about the juxtaposition of a fun day at the park and an unexpected tragedy that sticks in our minds. If you google “Disneyland accidents,” you get over 800,000 hits in Google. Among the most frequently cited are two deaths on the Matterhorn, one of the icons of the park. The details repeated online in each

Trader Sams Changes Name Of Shrunken Zombie Head Cocktail

Disneyland fans received some exciting news today. A number of Disneyland and California Adventure dining locations would be reopening within a matter of weeks. Disney also once again confirmed the reopening of Trader Sam 's Enchanted Tiki Bar - the popular watering hole will reopen on July 2 along with the Disneyland Hotel where it is located. Trader Sam 's Enchanted Tiki Bar is known for its fun drinks, tropical-themed menu, and fun staff who are known to make it rain when certain

RIP Gag Factory Fun Disney Store Completely Torn Down

Walt Disney said that Disneyland would never be complete as long as there is imagination left in the world. Disneyland will change as times change, new technology is developed, and Guests ' interests change. With that being said, Disneyland Resort is currently moving full-steam ahead on the construction of its newest attraction, Mickey and Minnie 's Runaway Railway. In order to make way for the new ride, which will be located in Mickey 's ToonTown, Disneyland must tear down some of what

Jungle Cruise Scene By Scene Preview Of Changes Coming

Disneyland will remove several racially insensitive scenes from the Jungle Cruise and replace them with comic scenes featuring mischievous animals and a new cast of culturally diverse characters as part of a major overall of the classic attraction. Disneyland will reopen Jungle Cruise on July 16 after the boat ride undergoes a major makeover to remove outdated cultural depictions and add a woman of color at the center of the revamped backstory of the attraction. The classic 1955 attraction

Wonderful Wizard Of Bras

Featured in Ripley's Believe It or Not! What comes to mind when you think about Disneyland? Perhaps, Pirates of the Caribbean, the Haunted Mansion, or the Matterhorn Bobsleds? Or maybe you 're a fan of the Main Street Electrical Parade? No matter your immediate association with the wonderful world of Disney, we 're guessing the history of underwear probably doesn 't rank high on your list. Yet, when the Magic Kingdom first opened in sunny SoCal in 1955, it included Hollywood-Maxwell 's

Which COVID Era Changes Will Stay Which Will Go

The prepandemic version of Disneyland might be gone forever. California lifted most of its coronavirus safety restrictions last week, and the parks at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim are continuing to reopen in phases - but a handful of the COVID-era changes are going to stick. “I don 't want to say we are going to go back to the way it was,” Josh D 'Amaro, chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, said about managing the parks. “I want to be really smart in the way

No Big Deal Just Gawkers Watching Part Of Toontown Get Demolished For New Attraction

Disneyland will never be finished. Walt Disney always said that as long as there was imagination in the world, his theme park would always change, adapt and evolve. And it certainly has done just that. For more than 65 years Disneyland has never remained still. There's always something new being added, which sometimes requires something old to be removed, but normally guests don't actually see this happen. Yesterday visitors to Disneyland, and more specifically those inside Mickey's Toontown,

Less Than Half Of 32000 Employees Have Returned To Work

Less than half of the 32,000 Disneyland employees have returned to work after thousands were laid off or furloughed during the 412-day coronavirus closure of the Anaheim theme parks. The Disneyland resort has 15,000 cast members currently working and expects to hire about 1,000 more this summer, according to Disneyland officials. Disneyland laid off or furloughed thousands of cast members - Disney parlance for employees - during the COVID-19 pandemic after state officials

Disneyland Makes Tossing Out Leftover Food A Little Less Wasteful

We 've all been there when it comes to leftover Disneyland food. There 's no way to finish that eyes-bigger-than-your-stomach turkey leg. Nobody wants the dregs at the bottom of the popcorn bucket. The little one is not in the mood for a corndog after all. You 're unable to finish that Mickey-shaped pretzel after a day filled with snacks and treats. It 's a shame to toss unfinished food, but takeout containers are not really an option at Disneyland. Now the

Disneyland Brings Scan And Go Shopping To Theme Park Stores

Disneyland has expanded its new mobile checkout system to two theme park shops. This allows shoppers to use the Disneyland app to scan for products, leave the store for purchases, and completely bypass the checkout counter line. Disneyland 's Emporium and Disney California Adventure 's Elias and Company began offering mobile checkouts for their products on Thursday, June 24, according to Disneyland officials. The mobile checkout system for merchandise is an extension of the

What Happens Next We Have Got Answers To 10 Key Questions

Disneyland provided a lot of answers about what the Anaheim theme park will be like now that state pandemic restrictions have been lifted, but a lot of questions remain about what will change over the next few months as the phased reopening continues. Disneyland and Disney California Adventure will increase attendance, drop mask requirements for vaccinated visitors, discontinue physical distancing and continue advance reservations as the state ends most COVID-19 health and safety measures

Guess What Is Back At Galaxys Edge

Right before the pandemic hit our world and Disneyland Resort was forced to close, I was able to snag a very popular souvenir that Disney and Star Wars fans could only find at Star Wars: Galaxy 's Edge (although they were seen once in a supermarket). After the grand reopening of Disneyland and Disney California Adventure on April 30, we reported that Disney fans were searching high and low around Galaxy 's Edge for the famous Coca-Cola bottle “thermal detonators”, but, unfortunately, this

From Face Masks To Theme Park Reservations Here Is What Parkgoers Can Expect

To align with the reopening of California's economy on June 15, Disneyland Resort on Monday announced some relaxed Covid-19 restrictions for guests. Following a yearlong closure due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Anaheim theme park reopened to California residents at a limited capacity on April 30. On Tuesday, the park welcomed out-of-state guests for the first time this year. "At @Disneyland and it's like it's March 1, 2020. No masks, no physical distancing and jam

Fireworks Return In Time For Fourth Of July

Disneyland is bringing back fireworks this summer in time for the Fourth of July holiday celebration after the nighttime shows were put into hibernation while the Anaheim theme park was shuttered by the COVID-19 pandemic and beginning a phased reopening. “Mickey 's Mix Magic” will be presented nightly at Disneyland beginning on July 4 with fireworks, video projections, show lighting and lasers on the facades of Sleeping Beauty Castle, Main Street U.S.A. and It 's a Small World.

Drop Face Mask Requirements For Vaccinated Guests What To Know

Guests who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 will no longer be required to wear face masks anywhere inside Disneyland Resort starting Tuesday. The Anaheim, California, resort, which includes Disneyland, Disney California Adventure and Downtown Disney, announced the policy change Monday in a post on its site. Guests over 2 years of age who are not fully vaccinated must continue to wear masks indoors except when dining, but Disneyland Resort will not require guests to show

Disneyland Band Returns With More Live Entertainment Coming Soon

A Disneyland opening day attraction that was only intended to last two weeks but has stuck around for 66 years has survived the coronavirus pandemic closure of the Anaheim theme park and will make a triumphant return this week marching down Main Street U.S.A. The Disneyland Band will return on Friday, June 18 after a 15-month absence from the park with performances planned throughout the day. The band 's return is good news for fans of live entertainment - which has been largely

Two Most Popular Rides Temporarily Closed

Although Disney Parks Cast Members do everything they can to make sure rides and attractions remain operational for Guests every day, sometimes unexpected downtime does occur. Today, two of Disneyland Resort 's most popular rides - Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance are experiencing unanticipated temporary closures. As you can see below, the Disneyland app currently notes that Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is “Temporarily Closed” in Frontierland at Disneyland

Is A New Gumbo Shop Coming To New Orleans Square

Ever since Disneyland reopened in April, we 've been scouring the entire resort looking for all the changes, refurbishments and new offerings that were produced during its COVID closure. Some things have been very obvious like the new queue lines for Peter Pan 's Flight and Storybook Canal Boats. Others, like the refurb of Snow White and the addition of Avengers Campus have drawn big crowds. And some we 're sure are small enough that maybe we haven 't noticed them yet. One of these almost

Cast Members Testing Davy Crocketts Explorer Canoes

Over the last few weeks, Disney fans have been excited to see progress at the Disneyland Resort. Recently, we shared that Disneyland is prepping many restaurants to reopen very soon in Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Parks, and Avengers Campus is allowing Guests to fully enjoy their own Marvel experience with super hero interactions happening in every corner. With Disneyland prepared to ramp up operations and allow out-of-state visitors to return to The Happiest Place on Earth,
