Hey there, friends! Welcome to another roundup of What’s New in Disneyland Resort!
Of course, the BIG NEWS is that it’s officially Halloween Time, but we also have a bunch of other things (like a NEW Loungefly backpack) to tell you about as well.
We’ve been reporting live from the parks ALL DAY and we’ve already had a chance to check out some of the other spooky snacks at Galactic Grill. Both the Blood Orange Slush and Darth By Chocolate Parfait were crowd favorites, but…what’s that I see? Loaded Fleet Fries…with pulled pork? And CHEESE? Um, yes, please!
Your lack of treats is disturbing… That’s why you need to head over to Disneyland to try these new AND returning Halloween Time treats!
Halloween Time has officially started in Disneyland Resort!!
And we’re coming to you LIVE as we check out all the new yummy offerings around the parks!
Happy weekend! We’ve been hard at work in the parks scoping out all the latest news for you! First, a few things to remember… .
The 2019 Epcot Food and Wine Festival kicks off THIS WEEK on August 29 and we’re covering it all! Did you see the menus that are out now? See every single Food and Wine Festival MENU and some FOOD PHOTOS as well — here!
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is now OPEN in Disneyland and will officially open THIS WEEK on August 29 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! Check out all our Disneyland Galaxy’s Edge coverage to start planning for Disney World (the two lands are virtually identical)!
We have a lot to share with you this week, so let’s jump right in…
It’s Star Wars everything at Disneyland Park these days with Galaxy’s Edge set to open in just a few weeks, but if you’re in the park this weekend — May 4-5 — you’re in for a treat! Disneyland’s Tomorrowland will be alive with loads of May the 4th merchandise, ride enhancements, and food and drink! And we’ve got a sneak peek of those beverages and bites thanks to the Disney Parks Blog!

Each time we visit Disneyland we see more signs of the resort moving towards the elimination of single-use plastic straws. Last week we saw the first paper straws in Disneyland Park at Hungry Bear Restaurant.
This week we found paper straws at many more of Disneyland’s counter service locations, including Stage Door Cafe, Rancho Del Zocalo, and Galactic Grill. Just a few weeks ago two of these locations were still using plastic straws and lids.
You may have been following along with the updates regarding Disney’s commitment to reducing single-use plastics around Disney destinations worldwide in 2019.
While progress is being made towards these efforts, we’re finding that the realization of these goals seems to be in different phases in different spots. Take, for instance, this tale of Counter Service locations in Disneyland per a walk-around at the park today. Hungry Bear Restaurant is currently offering guests paper straws. [Read more…]
Starting last week, Disneyland Annual Passholders were able to access Mobile Order at Counter Service locations all over Disneyland Resort. But now, all guests visiting Disneyland are able to utilize the service!
As a refresher, Mobile Order is a process available via the Disneyland app which allows guests to pre-order and pre-pay for their food at participating Counter Service restaurants, thereby avoiding time spent in line! (Here’s a tip: if you aren’t seeing the icon allowing you to “Order Food” in your Disneyland app, be sure to install the latest update. )
Ordering and picking up your food at a Counter Service restaurant in Disney World has never been easier thanks to the introduction of Mobile Order: a process that allows guests to pre-order and pre-pay for their food at participating Counter Service restaurants, thereby avoiding time spent in line. So it was great news when it was revealed that Mobile Order will be coming to Disneyland, too, via the Disneyland app!
And now, Mobile Order is up and running for Disneyland… almost! Currently, Disneyland Annual Passholders are able to utilize the feature at several locations, and soon all Disneyland guests will be able to access it. [Read more…]
