Exclusive Article

Some of you may have attended one of my many presentations at D23 or Disneyana Fan Club events over the past twenty years. My brother, David, has joined me as we walked the attendees through the wonderful life we had growing up in a celebrity family and Disneyland. Dad owned his own restaurant in Frontierland from 1957 to 1962 – a most unusual part of the Park’s history. Well, now I’ve got a new book by the same title with far more fun stuff than we could squeeze into a 45 minute presentation.

Growing Up In Disneyland

Some of you may have attended one of my many presentations at D23 or Disneyana Fan Club events over the past twenty years. My brother, David, has joined me as we walked the attendees through the wonderful life we had growing up in a celebrity family and Disneyland. Dad owned his own restaurant in Frontierland from 1957 to 1962 - a most unusual part of the Park 's history. Well, now I 've got a new book by the same title with far more fun stuff than we could squeeze into a 45 minute presentation.

Star Wars Rise Of The Resistance Set To Open At Disneyland Park In January

“Star Wars” fans, circle this date on your calendar. Disney on Thursday announced an opening date for its newest attraction at the “Star Wars: Galaxy 's Edge” park. “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance” will open on Jan. 17, 2020, at Disneyland. The ride will “put guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance,” the company said on its blog. Walt Disney World 's own Rise of the Resistance ride will open a little

Main Street Electrical Parade Returns For A Limited Engagement This August

There have been a bunch of different parades at Disney theme parks over the years, but one looms above all others. The Main Street Electrical Parade, which first ran at Disneyland in 1972, is the theme park parade by which all others are measured-for better and worse. The legendary spectacle celebrates some of Disney 's most beloved characters with hundreds of thousands of lights with retrofuturistic synth music straight from the ‘60s and ‘70s. (Seriously, if you 're a Moog nerd, you 're gonna love this

Hyperspace Mountain To Continue Popular Run Through Halloween Season

Space Mountain won 't get the Ghost Galaxy holiday ride overlay this Halloween season. A fleet of X-Wings, TIE fighters and Star Destroyers will keep a fiery interstellar demon from haunting Space Mountain this Halloween season as Disneyland extends the run of the popular Star Wars version of the ride. Disneyland will continue the run of Hyperspace Mountain through the Halloween season due to the continued popularity of the Star Wars ride overlay on the venerable Space Mountain

Disneyland To Offer Halloween Screams To All This Fall

The Disneyland Resort announced earlier this year that it would be moving its annual hard-ticket Halloween party back across the esplanade to Disney California Adventure this fall. But with the new Oogie Boogie Bash running over there, what would happen to the Halloween Screams fireworks show that used to play exclusively at Mickey's Halloween Party? Well, Disney answered that question today. Rather than mothballing the show, Disneyland will be playing it for everyone this year. However,

It Is Not Your Grandparents Disneyland Anymore

When I first started going to Disneyland shortly after the park opened in 1955, the most advanced high-tech item you could buy was an authentic Davy Crockett coonskin cap. You wore it proudly and recorded your visit (in black and white) with your trusty Brownie Sure Shot camera. Today you'll need a lot more interactive smartphone savvy if you and your children really want to explore Disneyland's hottest new attraction, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. Forget the era of E-tickets, those

Anaheim Police Investigating Viral Video Of Violent Disneyland Brawl

Police in Anaheim, California, said Monday they are considering whether to file criminal charges against members of a family who were caught on video in a prolonged brawl at Disneyland on Saturday. A bystander's video of the fight, which broke out against the backdrop of Disneyland's colorful and whimsical Toontown, has gone viral since it was posted on YouTube, racking up more than 900,000 views by Monday afternoon. The Anaheim Police Department said in a statement Monday

Resort To Celebrate Fourth Of July With Extraordinary Activity Lineup Know It Here

The Fourth of July is celebrated across the United States, so where is the best place to observe the country's independence but in Disneyland Resort. Join Mickey Mouse and friends as Disney commemorates this special event with an extraordinary lineup of activities. Disneyland Resort celebrates Independence Day every year, knowing that its founder, Walt Disney, is a patriotic man himself. So on the Fourth of July holiday, there will be a big celebration that will start when the park

Pixar Pals Parking Garage Set To Open Sunday Months Ahead Of Schedule

A new $100 million Disneyland parking garage will open this weekend several months ahead of schedule just as summer visitors begin showing up to see the new Star Wars: Galaxy 's Edge themed land at the Anaheim theme park. The 6,500-space Pixar Pals parking structure will open Sunday, June 30, well ahead of the scheduled September opening of the new garage, according to Disneyland officials. A wetter-than-usual rainy season didn 't significantly slow down construction. The new

Guests Are Stealing Star Wars Galaxys Edge Items And Listing Them On Ebay

Who knew there was such a market for “Star Wars”-theme sporks? Less than a month after the opening of Disneyland 's Star Wars: Galaxy 's Edge, items seemingly stolen from within the park - and especially its eateries - are now selling for big bucks on eBay. And for clarification, these are not items that can be purchased at shops or restaurants within Star Wars: Galaxy 's Edge, but rather free items provided with meals and drinks, such as flatware, menus and coasters, the Orange

Disneyland Set To Bring Back Beloved Main Street Electrical Parade This Summer

A fan-favorite is heading back to Disneyland as the iconic Main Street Electrical Parade returns for a limited engagement this summer. Billed as a “spectacular festival pageant of nighttime magic and imagination,” the beloved attraction is set to light up the Anaheim theme park nightly from Aug. 2 through Sept. 30, Disney announced in a blog post on Friday. The dazzling after-dark spectacular features a half-million sparkling lights and a catchy “electro-syntho-magnetic” song,

Did The California Earthquake Cause Damage At Disneyland

Disneyland in Anaheim, California, is up and running following a 6.4 magnitude earthquake. There was no damage reported at the theme park following the quake that shook Southern California on Thursday, July 4, just after 10:30 a.m. local time. Although the earthquake was several miles away from Anaheim, the folks over at Disneyland needed to take the proper precautions to make sure that the attractions were safe for parkgoers. The quake was the strongest to hit SoCal in 20 years. The center of

Why Millennium Falcon Is Not One Ride But Three

After visiting Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge several times over the past month, I feel like I should stop saying that the land has only one ride. I know that Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance isn't open yet and that the other "attractions" in the land (Oga's Cantina, Savi's Workshop, Droid Depot) are not by any stretch rides. But, to me, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run - supposedly the only ride now open in the land - should not be considered as just one ride. Because it's really

Big Surprise At Disneyland Star Wars Lands Not So Long Waits

Walt Disney Co. 's efforts to prevent overcrowding at its new Star Wars themed land appear to be working. Websites that track attendance at Disneyland, the second-busiest theme park in the world, say the crowds have been manageable. The wait Wednesday afternoon for the signature Millennium Falcon ride was as little as 25 minutes, comparable to the 25-year-old Roger Rabbit 's Car Toon Spin, according to Laughing Place Inc., which uses a proprietary system to track crowds. “We 're

We Could Not Even Have Imagined Gorgeous New Pink Treats

Disney's new "imagination pink" treats are even better than ones we could have dreamed up. From cake pops to cupcakes, macarons to tarts, there's plenty of pink to populate your Instagram this summer. There's also a brand-new line of Imagination Pink merchandise to match. You know, if you're into that sort of thing. (We are.) The new treats are available around both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Disneyland: The Imagination Pink Cake Pop is

Used Blue Milk Cups 90 Dollar Sporks The Strangest Star Wars Land Stuff For Sale On Ebay

If you 've got $10 and a hankering for an unremarkable plastic cup with only passing ties to the “Star Wars” franchise, have I got news for you. Online auction website eBay is the hopping place for trading and selling merchandise from Disneyland 's new Star Wars: Galaxy 's Edge, with listings for everything from limited edition T-shirts to custom lightsabers. Some of the items being sold on the site, however, are a little questionable. Namely, empty plastic

Star Wars Galaxys Edge Is Now Open To All

If you 're reading this, you can now go to Star Wars: Galaxy 's Edge. Though the Star Wars-themed section of Disneyland in Anaheim, California has been open for a few weeks, up until today, you needed a reservation to enter-and those reservations sold out in two hours two months ago. From now on, though, that 's no longer the case. You can just go...with the purchase of a Disneyland ticket of course. However, it is a tiny bit more complicated than that, at least for a while

How The Star Wars Galaxys Edge Virtual Queue Works

While many lucky Jedis with reservations have already been frolicking around Disneyland's newest Star Wars attraction Galaxy's Edge, the rest of the world will get a chance as well June 24 - and Disneyland is doing its best to make sure lines don't turn it into the most frustrating place in the galaxy. It's no shock that many Disneyland diehards and even once-a-year visitors lament the crowd sizes. Because of that, Disneyland announced a queue system Wednesday that help everyone

Here Is How Much You Will Spend On A Trip To Star Wars Galaxys Edge

It should come as no surprise that a trip to a galaxy far, far away will cost you quite a few galactic credits - but just how much money should you prepared to drop on your trip to Disneyland 's new Star Wars: Galaxy 's Edge? Before you make your travel plans to visit the new land in Anaheim after it opens to the general public on June 24, here 's a roundup of some of the expenses you can expect, including tickets, food and souvenirs. BASICS: TICKETS, FOOD AND DRINKS

Grad Drowns On Joyride

A New Mexico high school senior who came to Disneyland for an all-night graduation party apparently drowned when he and a friend took a rubber raft for a "joy ride" on one of the amusement park's waterways. The body of Phil Straughan, 18, a student at St. Pius X High School in Albuquerque, was pulled from four feet of water in the river near the manmade Tom Sawyer's Island about 12:15 a.m., said park spokesman Bob Roth. The young man's companion. whose name was not

Disneyland Stops Selling Merchandise At Main Street Cinema Adds Park Benches To The 1955 Attraction

Disneyland has completed an initial test using merchandise as an incentive to drive traffic to an original 1955 opening day attraction celebrating some of Walt Disney 's earliest animated films in an attempt to drive more interest in the Main Street U.S.A. location. For less than a week, Disneyland 's Main Street Cinema sold merchandise inside the vintage movie palace with a Cartoons and Collectibles sign out front encouraging visitors to come in and see what 's new. On Thursday,

Walt Disney Reveals Just How Disneyland Was Created In Rare Interview

“Twenty years ago,” Walt said as we drove toward Disney­land, some 25 miles south­east of central Los Angeles, “I was always trying to think of a place to take my two small daughters on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon-a place where I could have fun, too. “At an amusement park, the only fun provided for a father, besides having his bottom dropped out from under him on the roller coaster, was the same he enjoyed all week: Buy­ing the tickets.” Now Walt has created his own park, to

Body Pulled From Disneyland River

The body of an 18-year-old New York tourist was recovered Saturday from a river in Disneyland's Frontierland area, eight hours after he apparently drowned trying to swim the watercourse with his younger brother, police reported. Anaheim Police identified the victim as Bodgen De Laurot, of Brooklyn. His body was located after a night-long search by Disneyland security officers and Anaheim police and firemen, officers said. The body was found in a rapids section of the "Rivers

Ogas Cantina Wait List Could Be Full In An Hour After Star Wars Galaxys Edge Reservation Period Ends

You may have to get up mighty early if you want a seat in Oga 's Cantina because the wait list for the Galaxy 's Edge cocktail bar could be full in less than an hour when the reservation-only period ends for Disneyland 's new Star Wars land. Touring Plans, which uses big data and statistical analysis to calculate daily crowd sizes and ride wait times at theme parks, estimates that the Oga 's Cantina wait list could be allocated daily in just under 48 minutes once the Star Wars: Galaxy 's Edge

Disneyland Makes Controversial Change To Classic Attraction I Am Livid

One of the oldest attractions in Disneyland just received an upgrade, but fans are not happy about it. In fact, some of them are actually “livid.” The Main Street Cinema has been in the park since its opening day in 1955. It was a place where guests could go and take a break while enjoying some old cartoons and air conditioning. While Disney is still showing the old animated films, they have reportedly added merchandise into the location, much to the chagrin of many fans. Disney

Disneyland Converts Classic Attraction Into A Gift Shop

When walking right down the middle of Main Street, U.S.A. at the Disneyland Resort, guests will find an opening day attraction has been transformed into a store. The Main Street Cinema, a staple of the small Midwest town-inspired Main Street since the park 's 1955 founding by Walt Disney, has long exhibited classic silent films and cartoons, including 1914 animated short Gertie the Dinosaur - among the earliest animated works that inspired a young Disney. Since the 1970s, the

Disneyland And Lyft Become Rideshare Partners As Star Wars Galaxys Edge Reservation Period Comes To An End

Disneyland is launching a rideshare partnership with Lyft just as the reservation-only period for the popular new Star Wars: Galaxy 's Edge comes to an end and an influx of additional vehicles is expected to stream into the Anaheim theme park resort. Disneyland announced that the Lyft rideshare partnership will begin today, June 18, just a few days before the Galaxy 's Edge reservation-only period ends June 23. Disney is rushing to complete a new parking structure in time to absorb the

Star Wars Galaxys Edge Updates New Restaurant Food And Drinks

Fans of Disneyland and Star Wars have anticipated the opening of Galaxy 's Edge since Disney acquired the franchise in 2012. Finally, the new section of the Anaheim, California amusement park is open to the public so that guests can be immersed in a piece of the Stars Wars universe. In an effort to make Galaxy 's Edge feel as authentic and interactive as possible, a number of new restaurants and outposts were designed that offer Star Wars-themed food and drinks to Disneyland visitors. Now

Are Those 200 Dollar Lightsabers Really Worth It

Anyone knows that a trip to Disney is going to cost you a pretty penny. First, there's the price of park tickets and then the cost of food, drinks, and fun little treats, and last but not least you need to have a budget for souvenirs. While many are happy picking up a character t-shirt, stuffie or their own Mickey ears, there are some park souvenirs that are definitely a bit pricier, and that includes the custom lightsaber you can make at Disneyland's new attraction Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. The

10 Hidden Details Only True Fans Noticed

All Disney fans know that Disney parks are full of surprises and hidden Easter eggs. Many of these hidden details pay tribute to creator and cartoonist Walt Disney and the long, celebrated history of the parks. Others are just fun little gags that are sure to delight children and adults alike. Disneyland in Anaheim, California was the first park to be opened by Walt Disney, and it has undergone many changes and renovations since its opening day in 1955. Still, the magic that Walt worked hard to ensure his

10 Best Things You Can Buy In Star Wars Galaxys Edge

Join us as we head out on a $1,000 virtual shopping spree in Galaxy 's Edge in search of the 10 best things we can buy in the new Star Wars themed land at Disneyland. There 's no need to include items most people already know about: Custom-built lightsabers, handmade droids, “thermal detonator” Coke bottles, $25,000 R2-D2s and Mouse Droid popcorn buckets. This retail therapy is all about hunting for the hidden finds in Galaxy 's Edge marketplace shops. What 's the best way to

Star Wars Greatest Trick Making Disneyland Lines Disappear

The impossible is happening at Disneyland. I 'm not talking about flying the Millennium Falcon on a new planet in the Star Wars universe. Disney has been creating that kind of entertainment magic for decades. I am talking instead about something far more unusual for one of the world 's most popular theme parks. The lines are disappearing. Ever since Star Wars: Galaxy 's Edge opened to reservation holders on May 31, Disneyland has been experiencing some of the smallest queues that

Inside The Opening Week Of Star Wars Galaxys Edge At Disneyland

Sadly I wasn 't able to attend the opening weekend of Galaxy 's Edge at Disneyland. However, my good friend Michael Rhaney and his wife Laura are Disneyland locals and annual pass holders, which means they DID snag reservations for the first week of Star Wars: Galaxy 's Edge. I decided to live vicariously through them and ask Michael all about the overall experience, how well the reservation systems worked and the crowds were, any tips for other folks going this first month, and more. (editors note: some

Inside Disneylands 1 Billion Star Wars Attraction

AFTER five years, 6700 construction works and a reported $1 billion dollars, Star Wars fans can now live out their very own fantasies in Disneyland Resort's newest attraction. The 56,000-square metre Galaxy 's Edge, the world 's largest Star Wars attraction, officially opened at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, late last month, transporting guests to a new world, the planet of Batuu. The highly-anticipated attraction, set over 14 acres, has been designed with

A Look Back At Matterhorn Bobsleds Submarine Voyage And Monorail On 60Th Anniversary Of Disneyland Rides

It was 60 years ago this week that the first wave of E-Ticket attractions swept into Disneyland with the debut of Matterhorn Bobsleds, Submarine Voyage and the monorail as the Anaheim theme park underwent its first major expansion in June 1959. With the help of U.S. vice president Richard Nixon, Disneyland introduced three new attractions on June 14, 1959 that helped usher in the E-Ticket era of the then 4-year-old theme park. The day-long celebration was nationally televised during an ABC
