Secret To Getting The Best Seat At Blue Bayou

Every Disneyland fan has their favorite restaurant, but if you were to poll a group of them, Blue Bayou would almost certainly be at the top of the list. The restaurant isn 't just a dining experience; it 's inside Pirates of the Caribbean in New Orleans Square and part of the attraction itself. The tables just on the edge of the water are, by far, the best tables in the house. From there, you can see boats of riders floating through the bayou scene of Pirates of the Caribbean.

Several Classic Rides To Temporarily Close

Guests visiting the Disneyland Resort in June won 't be able to enjoy several classic rides due to scheduled refurbishments. Beginning on June 5, Peter Pan 's Flight, Mr. Toad 's Wild Ride, Alice in Wonderland, and The Little Mermaid: Ariel 's Undersea Adventure will be closed.

Parade Breaks Down Abandoned In Middle Of Park

Disneyland 's daily parade ran into some trouble this weekend when one float decided that magic does not, in fact, happen when the power goes out. Launched in 2020 - less than two weeks before COVID-19 shut down Disney Parks worldwide - Magic Happens sees the likes of Mickey Mouse, Moana, Elsa, Anna, and more entertain Guests each day at Disneyland.

Disneyland Dedicates 3 Windows On Main Street To Make A Wish

For the first time ever, Disneyland Resort dedicated its Main Street store windows to an organization, rather than a person. For more than 40 years, Disneyland and Make-A-Wish Foundation have worked together to grant wishes to terminally ill children. Typically, individuals who have contributed to Disneyland are honored on these windows. Many well-known Disney people have windows on Main Street U.S.A., including the Sherman Brothers who wrote the music for "Mary Poppins" as

Disney Cancels Some Fire Effects At Shows Worldwide After Dragon Incident

Disney will pull certain fire effects from shows at their resorts worldwide after an animatronic dragon caught fire at Disneyland in Southern California on Saturday, company officials say. “We are temporarily suspending fire effects similar to those used at Disneyland park 's Fantasmic at select shows and entertainment experiences globally out of an abundance of caution,” Disneyland officials said in a statement on Monday. Pyrotechnics are among the special effects featured in

Cursed History Of Problematic Fantasmic Dragon That Burst Into Flames

The Disneyland dragon that burst into a towering inferno during “Fantasmic” has a troubled history stretching back more than a decade to the cursed debut of the 45-foot-tall audio-animatronic beast nicknamed after Murphy 's Law. The “Fantasmic” dragon that caught fire during a performance of the nighttime spectacular over the weekend was an embarrassing no-show throughout summer 2009 when the fire-breathing Maleficent was the centerpiece of the Summer Nightastic promotion at the Anaheim

What It Is Like To Create A Theme Park Ride And How To Become A Disney Imagineer

For millions of people, theme park rides bring unbridled amounts of joy. Whether it's the thrill of nostalgia of rides from your childhood like Splash Mountain at Disneyland in California or the rush of adrenaline from the rollercoasters such as the Incredi-coaster, there's no doubting the role of the ride has evolved from simpler days at the Walt Disney parks. But key to those rides are a select group of people who turn the concepts into reality. They are known as the

What Is Next For Fantasmic Dragon After Major Fire

During the grand finale of Disneyland 's “Fantasmic” show, the Maleficent dragon appears from seemingly nowhere, towering over Sorcerer Mickey, who defeats the evil sorceress with the power of imagination. But on April 22, it wasn 't Mickey who defeated the dragon: It was a pyrotechnic malfunction that quickly engulfed the prop in flames, causing a major fire and the evacuation of Rivers of America and surrounding areas of the park. No one was hurt in the blaze, which Anaheim

Disneyland Announced The Spooky Treats For Its Halfway To Halloween Celebration

Disney takes the cake when it comes to Halloween, but waiting an entire year for the delicious food and fun is just too much for some folks.

During this time, spooky treats lurking in select locations throughout Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure Park, and the Downtown Disney District

Computer Issue Delays Guests From Entering The Parks

Some parkgoers who visited the Disneyland Resort on Thursday could not get into the parks or use any technology-dependent features due to a computer system crash, The Orange County Register reported. The crash briefly affected the turnstiles entryways at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure, parking structures, and certain Magicband+ capabilities. Guests couldn 't park hop between the two parks, Magicbands was not working correctly and annual pass holders, known at the

Attractions That Typically Do Not Have Long Lines

Disneyland and Disney California Adventure are filled with various attractions, restaurants and retail shops that make for a magical visit, at least for the part of the visit where you aren 't in line. For Disneyland Resort fans and first-time visitors who want to enjoy the park more and spend less time standing in line, here are some attractions and experiences that typically don 't have long wait times. Attractions Splash Mountain The famous yet

Why A Dining Package Is A No Brain Way To See The Parks Shows

Disneyland visitors are often overwhelmed with entertainment choices, and the planning involved to secure a spot for these spectacular shows. To make matters worse, the number of Disneyland Resort guests has grown exponentially in recent years and crowds seem willing to wait hours for prime viewing. Between the two all-new nighttime spectaculars, the classic fan-favorite Fantasmic and the return of the massively popular Magic Happens parade, standing around holding a spot digs into your day.

The Much Missed Restaurant Disneyland Tore Down To Build Star Wars Galaxys Edge

Ask any longtime Disneyland fan which food they miss the most, and you 'll likely get one of two answers: They 'll say the McDonald 's Fry Wagon, or they 'll say Big Thunder Ranch Barbecue. When it closed, so went the only family-style table service restaurant at the resort. Nowhere on Disneyland property has offered anywhere close to the all-you-can-eat model for that kind of value since it shut down. For this, we can blame “Star Wars.” It seems like everyone who attended the

How Much Can You Afford We Asked Experts How To Fix Disneyland

When Disney CEO Bob Chapek was fired in November 2022, and previous CEO Bob Iger was reinstated for a temporary two-year term, fans were overjoyed. Iger was widely perceived as a beloved steward of the company 's - and Walt Disney 's - original vision. The cost-cutting, increased prices, sacrificing of quality and indefinable “loss of magic” that many complained about would come to an end. Since Iger 's reinstatement, Disneyland has loosened park-hopping hours, offered more days for

Disneyland Sets Splash Mountain Closing Date Releases New Concept Art For Tianas Bayou Adventure

Disneyland 's Splash Mountain - the famed log flume ride whose imagery is rooted in the dated and racist 1946 film “Song of the South” - has an end date. Guests will have their final chance to plunge a five-story drop through a briar patch on May 30, giving Disneyland attendees one last busy Memorial Day weekend to experience the attraction in its current form. But the imaginative water-based track and mountainous building aren 't going anywhere. The attraction will reopen in 2024 as

All The Magical Attractions You Can Do That Are Not Rides

Frequent Disneyland visitors will tell you that any slow season of the past is virtually non-existent today. Visitors who tire of days standing in long lines for short rides are often pushed into paying for Genie Plus, which adds even more money to an already expensive day at the park. The good news, however, is that Disneyland Resort offers plenty of attractions that aren't rides to pass your precious hours inside the parks. If you're ready to spend less time waiting in line and
