Hello to all our DFB readers!
We recently went on a trip to Disneyland Resort to see what’s been happening since we were there last, and we have a TON of updates. So buckle up, keep your hands and feet inside the ride vehicle, and let’s get going!
Y’all!!! We are only ONE week away from Disneyland reopening, and in case you hadn’t noticed — we are EXCITED!
Disneyland just opened up dining reservations, released a brand NEW merchandise collection, showed us how Cast Members are dying to see us again, and added mobile order to even more restaurants! And after spending HOURS waiting in a virtual line, we GOT OUR TICKETS!
Hello from the West Coast! We are SO excited about Disneyland reopening this month, but that doesn’t mean we’re done making our way around Downtown Disney and Disney California Adventure while getting our SHOPPING and eating on, too!
And while we were there, we checked out EVERYTHING to see what’s new, so are you ready for all the updates? Because here…we…go!!!
It was a BIG week in Disneyland this week! In fact, this might have been the biggest week since the parks closed a year ago! That’s because for the first time, guests were allowed into a FULL Disney California Adventure!
While no rides are available, guests who purchased tickets to A Touch of Disney are able to say “hello” to some of their favorite characters, eat some yummy treats, and stroll around the vast majority of California Adventure. With that and much, much more, let’s take a look at what’s new around Downtown Disney.
We spent a lovely day in Downtown Disney yesterday!
The Disneyland theme parks may still be closed for the time being, but we’re able to spend the day at the nearby shopping and dining district. So, we’ve got an update on everything NEW!
In case you missed it, there’s a brand new Disney character in town, and her name is Raya!
That’s right — Raya and the Last Dragon premiered TODAY on Disney+ and we can’t wait to watch it! We’ve already seen Raya and her crew making appearances on merch, and there’s also a gorgeous sand sculpture at Disney’s Animal Kingdom dedicated to the movie.
Disney is kicking off the month of March with some limited-time celebrations for Women’s History Month!
We’ve already seen banners popping up around Disney World and tried an INCREDIBLE new Dole Whip Float (read the review, you’ll appreciate our sad attempt at a pun) and there’s even more in store! Disney just released all of the details about their celebration of women and artistry and it turns out we have a lot of dates to mark on our calendars with events!
We spent our day yesterday checking out some interesting developments.
Stroll around Downtown Disney in Disneyland Resort with us to see allllll of the latest news when it comes to food, construction, and merchandise!
Ever thought, you know what would be cute? Sticking a little face on Cinderella Castle! Well, that’s what Jerrod Maruyama is doing!
Jerrod Maruyama is the artist behind the Hipster Mickey line and you might recognize his name from some recent designs we’ve spotted in the parks (like this MagicBand). He’s been bringing us too-cool-for-school Mickey gear — like a Hipster Mickey hat — for a little while now and we spotted a new home collection from the hip artist on our recent visit to Disneyland Resort!
There’s been lots of excitement at Disneyland’s Downtown Disney District recently.
As restaurants gradually reopen, we’ve also seen the transformation of Rainforest Café into what is expected to become the Star Wars Trading Post (which we previewed a while back). And now, we have an official opening date for the new spot!
