And last Fall, Disneyland announced Oogie Boogie Bash would be returning in 2020, but dates were never announced and tickets to the special events never went on sale. Now that Disneyland Park Resort’s theme park and hotels have and will remain closed until further notice, Disney has officially canceled Oogie Boogie Bash Halloween parties this year.
Universal Studios Orlando reopened its theme parks on June 5th while Universal Studios Hollywood’s theme parks are still closed.
Last month, we learned Disney World had made the difficult decision to cancel their Mickey’s-Not-So-Scary Halloween parties for 2020. Now Universal Studios has just announced their Halloween Horror Nights for 2020 have been canceled.
Earlier this month, the suspension of all Adventures by Disney departures was extended to the end of August, and just recently, it has been pushed back again.
Last week, Disney World’s official reopening date was announced, but with this big news came much confusion.
Since Disney World would have to operate with a limited capacity upon reopening, we were told a brand new reservation system would be implemented.
Mayor Buddy Dyer announced in a press conference yesterday that the city of Orlando’s Fourth of July fireworks display is being canceled this year.
A pre-recorded version of Fireworks at the Fountain, the annual show held at Orlando’s Lake Eola Park, will be televised instead.
In what has already proven to be a very tough time for seniors wrapping up their high school lives, Disneyland Resort has just announced their decision to cancel the 2020 annual Grad Nite parties.
These parties are normally a time of much excitement where graduates get to join their friends for a night of fun and laughter at Disneyland before embarking to college or other new adventures! We’re so bummed for you guys, but we’re still so proud of all that you’ve accomplished!
According to the Disney Parks Blog, Disney’s California Food and Wine Festival will not be held in 2011 and 2012. This decision is due to the significant construction happening in Disney California Adventure over the next two years and the difficulty it presents for an event like the Food & Wine Festival.
This festival, which just celebrated its 5th year in 2010, was much loved by Disneyland devotees and Disney food fans the world over. And after five years of climbing the ranks of American food festivals, bringing some incredible celebrity names to the table, and delivering what I felt was a very special event that only a place like Disneyland could produce (i.e. it was hip), I’m sad to hear that it will be postponed (just postponed, right, Disneyland? I know you didn’t say for sure it was coming back, but it is, right? It is???).
My feeling when I visited the festival in 2010 was that Disneyland had gained a lot of ground over the past five years and was poised to grow the Food and Wine Festival into an even bigger success. I’m very sorry to hear that the potential is now there to lose ground on the progress and traditions that they’ve made, but I also know that Disneyland clientele will welcome the festival back with open arms if and when it re-appears.
I know I’ll be there.
