Hey everyone, we’ve got another update for you from Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure.
There is a lot of construction updates, merch, and food to cover today, so let’s get to it!
Disneyland Construction Updates
We’re starting off our trip today in the realm of fantasy where teams are hard at work sprinkling a little pixie dust on a few attractions. Snow White’s Scary Adventures and King Arthur Carrousel are both down for lengthy refurbishments, and we can now see that the walls are growing in size with the project.
This is Disney we’re talking about though, and even their construction sites buck the trend. Tarps have been put up around Snow White that imitate the facade.

New Orleans Square
The refurbishment of the Haunted Mansion continues as touch-up work is being done to the exterior, interiors, and mechanics of the ride.
We can see that scaffolding has now been up in front of the mansion’s facade.
The refurbishment won’t be finished until sometime in the spring, but by that time the mansion will be looking as good as new outside and spooky as ever inside.
Disneyland Merchandise Update
Over at Disney Clothiers, they have a new set of designed cardholders for safe and easy access. You can pick from classic Mickey Ears…
…a Mickey Balloon…
…Mickey Ice Cream Bar…
…or a Haunted Mansion design with Madame Leota on the front. Each of these unique cardholders costs $14.99.
Le Petit Chalet
At Le Petit Chalet, you can find these new foam keychains of some of our favorite pals and a…train, teacup, and carousel horse.
You can choose from Mickey, Donald, Goofy, Pluto, and Chip and Dale in addition to the unique attraction keychains. Each one will only run you $3.49.
Yesterday, we reported on a new Mandalorian mug that you can pick up at Star Trader. You can now drink out of the infamous bounty hunter’s helmet for $22.99.
If you’ve been checking in with us regularly, you probably know about these adorable little guys called Park Pals.
Park Pals can attach to your jacket or backpack and come along with you on all your Disney adventures. You can find a whole line of them over at Pooh’s Corner right now.
We found Mickey, Minnie, Simba, Orange Bird, Bre’r Rabbit, Stitch, Pooh, and the Cheshire Cat here, but there could be others out there in the resort. You will have to pay $11.99 for each Park Pal if you want to collect them all.
Disney has heard our cries and they have finally started selling the Metal Sporks from Docking Bay 7.
They’re limiting these to only one per guest right now, but it comes with this cool holder with Aurebesh, one of the Star Wars languages, on it.
If you want to grab one of these before they’re out, they’ll cost you $10.99. Unfortunately, at this time the Spork is not discount eligible.
Around the Park
You might remember those Redd Minnie Ears that took Disneyland by storm late last year. In fact, they came and then very quickly started flying off shelves!
We are happy to say that in our stroll around the park, we noticed that the ears are back in stock at several locations throughout the park. If you want one, make sure to grab it fast before they’re all gone again.
Disney California Adventure Food Updates
They’ve gotten the mouse back to his roots featuring a classic style. The shake features chocolate cookies mixed with vanilla ice cream and milk, with whipped cream, and more chocolate cookies to finish it off. This sweet drink will cost you $7.99.
Over at Lamplight Lounge, we found these new Pork Belly Egg Rolls and a Lunar New Year Cocktail for this year’s Lunar New Year celebration.
The Pork Belly Egg Rolls go for $16 and can only be found upstairs at Lamplight Lounge. The Lunar New Year Cocktail costs $15.50.
Disney’s California Adventure Construction Updates
Now we’re trekking across the esplanade to see what’s happening over at California Adventure.
Carthay Circle Restaurant
Carthay Circle Restaurant’s refurbishment continues, but we have good news! The restaurant should be reopening soon. The refurbishment is scheduled to go through January 31st.
If you were planning on riding the rapids, we have some bad news. Both Grizzly River Run and Rushin’ River Outfitters are temporarily closed. Not to worry, because both are set to reopen on February 14th, which is just two weeks away.
We cannot wait for the first phase of Avengers Campus to open this summer and we can finally live out our superhero dreams.
Construction looks like it’s progressing and we can see the facade for the Spider-Man attraction coming along nicely.
In addition to this new state-of-the-art attraction, the first phase of Avengers Campus will include the Pym Test Kitchen. Can it just hurry up and open already?
On the wharf, the Boudin Bakery Tour through a real bread factory is currently unavailable. No word yet on when the tour is scheduled to reopen and we can get those fresh-baked sampled again, but we will have the update when it does.
That about wraps up our updates today for Disneyland Park and Disney’s California Adventure. Check back with us regularly so you know what’s new for your visit!
