Remember, that price reflects the souvenir glow cube that typically accompanies the Pop Up Bar cocktails, but the glow cubes don’t come with the wine. Still… it’s nice to know it’s there for ya, isn’t it ;) ?

Pixar Place Closures

Though Pixar Place (which used to be the street leading guests to the former entrance for Toy Story Mania) was being used as an overflow area during the very busy opening week of the new Land, the entire street is now closed. Hey Howdy Hey Takeaway, which was located in this area, has closed as well.

But the bigger construction story is obviously Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, which is slated to open in late fall 2019. And guests visiting Toy Story Land can get a pretty great view of it at the moment!

We don’t know how many “moments of Zen” were happening during a power outage at the park on July 12th, which took down attractions and air conditioning throughout the park for a stretch of time. But here are a few moments for you from our time here a bit earlier in the week!
