Hello, everyone! We’re over on the West Coast checking out everything going on at Disneyland Resort!
And BOY, is there a LOT going on. Not only is Disneyland reopening soon, but we just got some details about an expansion of the resort (!!!), AND then ate one of the most controversial snacks we’ve probably ever had!
We also recently spent some time at Downtown Disney, checking out ALL the updates, so buckle your seatbelts, keep your arms in the vehicle at all times, and let’s get going!
Downtown Disney Food Updates
Did you know you could get $1 refills at Downtown Disney? All you have to do is head over to Wetzel’s Pretzels and buy a Souvenir Mug! Oh, and IT LIGHTS UP.
But the best thing about this mug is that after you pay $14.99 for it (which includes a drink), you can bring it back to Wetzel’s with your receipt to get another FREE drink. Then, bring it on future trips to get refills for just $1! We can get behind that!
So here it is — the moment we know you’ve been waiting for. Because we’ve told you ALL about the infamous Pickle Corn Dog. And let’s just say — people have some STRONG opinions about this panko-crusted corn dog inside a pickle with its peanut butter dipping sauce.
Well, we tried it! And yeah, it’s a weird combo of flavors, but if you love pickles and hot dogs, we think you’ll actually like it! And oddly enough, we thought the peanut butter added just the right hint of sweetness. Who knew?!?!?!
Downtown Disney Merchandise Updates
World of Disney
The Tweed and Pearl Minnie Ears have officially arrived at Downtown Disney! These are the ears that have the Mickey-shaped pearls on them that we saw at Disney World. And they are even MORE stylish in person! Look at that tweed bow! These pretty ears are now available for $29.99.
We know a lot of you are Moms and would TOTES agree with this Mom is the Best Life T-Shirt. This tee is $36.99. Check out how the “i’s” are dotted with Mickey ears.
Forget “Best Day Ever” — how about a Best Mom Ever T-Shirt? Wouldn’t these shirts make great Mother’s Day gifts for Disney-loving moms? This one is also $36.99.
If you’re looking to represent that charming artwork from an equally charming ride, you now get a Loungefly ID Holder with that art on it! This one comes with a lanyard and is $20.
You can also get a Loungefly ‘it’s a small world’ ID Holder with a retractable clip for $20.
And we have to show you this ADORABLE retractable clip on this thing, too!
If the Enchanted Tiki Room is more your speed, there’s also a Tiki Room Cardholder for $14.99. And now we’re singing that song, too. Btw, we’ve seen this previously at the Polynesian Resort at Walt Disney World, appropriately enough!
We have a favorite duck and his name is Donald and he’s TOTALLY repping Disneyland on this new t-shirt! This bright yellow tee is $24.99. YEP!
Have you ever related so hard to a t-shirt? Yeah, us, too — this new Grumpy T-Shirt says it all “Nope, not today.” And it’s $24.99.
Our girl, Minnie is representing Disneyland on a pretty mint T-Shirt. This one just screams spring, doesn’t it? It’s also $24.99.
Disney has its share of iconic couples, but we’ll admit we love Stitch and Angel, and they’re here together on a Loungefly Mini Backpack for $75. Isn’t it precious? If you’re on the East Coast, we spotted this at Disney Springs!
Okay, pin collectors, start your engines and get ready to head to Downtown Disney. Because we found the Magic in the Stars Pinocchio Pin — and it’s got Figaro on it — and we rarely see him on stuff. The pin is available now for $19.99.
AND speaking of pins…the Artfully Evil collection is here, too. First, there’s the Queen of Hearts…
… and, of course, no one makes a pin awesome like Gaston. Both of these pins are $19.99.
We LOVED Raya and the Last Dragon and feel like this Stronger Together Pin gets to the heart of the movie! It’s available for $15.99.
There’s also a Sisu Pin. This one is $17.99, and we previously saw both of these at Disney World.
Don’t worry Baby Yoda fans, Disney is still making PLENTY of The Child merchandise. And we spotted a Grogu Character Clip for $11.99.
Do you love Disney snacks as much as we do? Well, we found a new keychain collection with nothing but snacks! YES!!! First, there’s a Mickey Popcorn Bucket Keychain.
The back is where you can see that this IS, in fact, a popcorn bucket — albeit a miniature one.
There’s also a Minnie one!
Now, the Alien Popcorn Bucket Keychain kinda’ freaked us out a bit. Because he looks — well, a little rabid. Like his eyes are really big and that doesn’t look like popcorn — it looks like he’s foaming at the mouth. 😱
But the Mickey Kitchen Sink Sundae Keychain is CUTE, so there’s that. Not scary at all. But they could have added another sccoop of ice cream! These keychains are $9.99 each.
We love hearing the Monorail announcement that tells us to “stand clear of the doors,” and you guys — it’s NOW ON A MUG! And you can get it for $14.99.
Can you spot your favorite Disneyland Icons on this Mug? We’ve got Sleeping Beauty Castle and Mickey’s Fun Wheel…
…and there’s also Carthay Circle Theatre and the Matterhorn. This awesome mug is $14.99.
Of course, you can always just get a Mickey Mouse Mug for $14.99. Nothing says Disney more than Mickey, are we right?
But Minnie is just as iconic, thank you very much! And she’s on a Mug, too! This mug is also $14.99.
Did someone say ice cream? Oh, wait, that was us! Well, we’re going to need an Ice Cream Scoop and we found an AWESOME one for $14.99. It’s got little fake Mickey sprinkles in the handle!
This Baymax Tumbler is ready to ask us if we’re satisfied with our care, WHILE keeping us hydrated!
This tumbler is $22.99. We would rate this an 11 on a scale of 1 to 10!
The Dress Shop
The Loungefly Ariel Purse is here! The little golden shells on it are such a nice touch, don’t you think?
This purse is $75 if you want it to be part of your world (see what we did there?).
That’s all the time we had for Downtown Disney for this trip, but we’ll be back soon with even more updates, so stay tuned!
