I wouldn’t necessarily hold our breath for this one, but it does look like World of Color is scheduled to return on March 1st, with soft opening starting on February 22nd. Dining reservations are open for these dates on the Disneyland website, if you want to get a meal and a great viewing spot for the show. – http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2019/02/09/when-will-world-of-color-return-to-disney-california-adventure-in-disneyland-resort/

The Orange County Register posted an article asking if attractions in Galaxy’s Edge could cost extra in addition to your park ticket or annual pass. They discuss the possibility of selling the FastPass tickets before the new land opens to decrease the onslaught of guests who would descend upon the resort to experience the new attractions. – https://www.ocregister.com/2019/02/12/will-disneyland-charge-more-to-ride-star-wars-galaxys-edge-attractions/

The decorative scrims have been installed on the scaffolding around Sleeping Beauty Castle this week. The front has updated concept art from Herb Ryman of what the castle was to look like before Disneyland construction began. The back scrim, facing Fantasyland is of Prince Philip battling Maleficent with Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather up by the peak of the scrims. – https://www.micechat.com/216726-disneyland-update-drenched-gumballs-and-scrim-covered-castle/
Yet another popcorn bucket has arrived at the resort, this time it is Minnie Mouse! This popcorn bucket is available to anyone and is not limited to annual passholders. It also does not include the $1 refills like the annual passholder exclusive ones. – http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2019/02/08/the-new-minnie-balloon-popcorn-bucket-has-landed-in-disneyland/
Disney PhotoPass has added a little extra pixie dust to one of their favorite photo locations. Guest can now think of all the joy they’ll find, when they leave the world behind as they pose in front of the train station while Peter Pan flies in the sky above! – https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2019/02/never-grow-up-with-the-newest-disney-photopass-magic-shot/
There is finally significant movement on the eastern security gateway that we discussed a permit for months ago. The new permanent security structure will replace the current security tents that are described as temporary, even though they have been there for years now. The new structure should allow faster processing of guests entering from Harbor Boulevard. – https://www.micechat.com/216726-disneyland-update-drenched-gumballs-and-scrim-covered-castle/
