Galaxy's Edge is due to open at Disneyland in the summer of 2019 but in the meantime, an assortment of props and costumes can be found at the Launch Bay in Tomorrowland, alongside character meet and greets.
Paint the Night premiered in Hong Kong in September 2014 and debuted in Disneyland on May 22nd, 2015 as part of the 60th anniversary celebrations. The parade ran regularly until September 2016 before returning for seasonal appearances. It moved to DCA in April 2018 where it ran until November 2018.
Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT! opened at Disney California Adventure on 27th May, 2017 replacing the Twilight Zone of the Tower. The essence of the ride remains the same but now those sudden drops are set to one of Star-Lords's awesome mixtape songs. The Disney Wiki has a great article detailing the various artifacts that can be found in the Collector's "Tivan Collection", a number of which can be viewed in the gallery below.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off! debuted in May 2017 as part of the Summer of Heroes at DCA. View a video of the full show below the galleries.
2018 saw the transformation of the hugely popular Cove Bar and Ariel's Grotto into Lamplight Lounge. Whilst many guests may mourn the loss of a character dining venue, there is much to explore inside Lamplight Lounge, as Disney explain:
"Renovated from an old warehouse factory, this eclectic eatery boasts cool architectural elements like concrete and exposed brick walls that reveal its storied past—all while creating an airy, bright and organic-yet-sophisticated ambiance. Guests will be excited to see a trove of Pixar treasures sprinkled into the California casual décor, including concept art, napkin sketches, knick-knacks, collectible toys and other mementos “left behind” by the filmmakers."
Of course the venue still retains that wonderful view of the Pier - and the much loved lobster nachos!
Some general photos from my trip to Disneyland Resort last month in addition to the Halloween photos already posted.
Lots of new photos added to the Disneyland Character Gallery, including assorted Halloween outfits and the Tales of Adventure Breakfast Buffet at Storytellers Cafe! A few new characters for me this trip, including Rey, Black Panther and the Dora Milaje and, of course, the fabulous Edna Mode!
I've just returned from a wonderful week at Disneyland enjoying the Halloween celebrations. Unfortunately last Friday's Halloween party fell foul of heavy rain, leading to the cancellation of the parades, although on the plus side this did result in much quieter parks! Fortunately, I'd attended a party earlier in the week but I felt so sorry for those who missed their one chance to view the parade.
