Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge isn’t even here yet and we are already talking about the next big thing for the resort. Plans have leaked online for the upcoming Marvel Land attraction for Spider-Man. The leaked images show a ride system similar to that of Toy Story Midway Mania. It is not a shock that the attraction that is said to put guests into the role of Spider-Man shooting webs at villains and objects would be like Midway Mania with the ability there to shoot rings, darts, and other projectiles at the screens. – https://wdwnt.com/2019/05/photos-leaked-blueprints-show-layout-of-spider-man-attraction-coming-to-walt-disney-studios-park-and-disney-california-adventure/
Last week, the reservation system opened for guests to get a time slot to enter Galaxy’s Edge in the first few weeks of operation. The system launched with very few hiccups. The biggest issue seemed to come when guests needed to add additional members to their reservation and it not being clear enough. Disney has worked with guests that had this issue on a case by case basis. In just under two hours, all the reservations were allotted. If you want to experience the new land in those first few weeks, your only option now is to book a room at a Disney Resort Hotel. – https://www.laughingplace.com/w/articles/2019/05/02/how-to-make-reservations-for-disneylands-galaxys-edge/
There is certainly going to be a lot of lines in Galaxy’s Edge, but if you want to get food at Docking Bay 7, Ronto Roasters, or the Milk Stand, you can skip the line and use mobile ordering. The other locations such as Oga’s Cantina or Kat Saka’s Kettle. – https://www.ocregister.com/2019/05/06/mobile-ordering-will-let-you-get-blue-milk-and-space-meat-without-the-wait-at-star-wars-galaxys-edge-in-disneyland/
The Orange County Register this week found some patents that give away the names of the upcoming beverages in Galaxy’s Edge. Some of the items include the White Wampa Wheat, Bad Motivator IPA, Gold Squadron Lager, and Gamorian and Trandocian Ales. There will also be some wines with names like Imperial Guard and Corellian Red. – https://www.ocregister.com/2019/05/04/disney-reveals-lineup-of-star-wars-themed-beers-and-wines-coming-to-galaxys-edge/
With the popular Star Wars Day of May the 4th, Hyperspace Mountain has returned. There is no work yet on when the attraction will go back to the classic version, but online speculation points to it hanging around until after Galaxy’s Edge opens, possibly even until the Ghost Galaxy overlay for Halloween shows up. – https://www.micechat.com/223914-disneyland-update-may-the-force-be-with-you-and-you-and-you/
The emotional whirlwind attraction themed to Inside Out in Pixar Pier is getting closer and closer to opening. This week the center of the ride system and some of the guest vehicles have arrived on site. Now that the foundation has been completed, it seems that construction has really sped up. – https://wdwnt.com/2019/05/photos-base-of-attraction-installed-and-four-boxed-vehicles-arrive-for-inside-out-emotional-whirlwind-attraction-at-disney-california-adventure/
For the past month, the back patio section of the Hungry Bear Restaurant in Critter Country has been closed off to guests, with a lot of questions on what is going on back there. We know now that a shade structure is being installed into this extended patio area. This extended area is expected to be a popular spot on the way to Galaxy’s Edge this summer. – https://www.micechat.com/223914-disneyland-update-may-the-force-be-with-you-and-you-and-you/
As May charges along, the Sleeping Beauty Castle refurbishment continues. It should be wrapping up just in time for Galaxy’s Edge at the end of the month. This last week even more of the new paint can be seen if you look closely for it around the non-fenced off areas of the castle. – https://www.micechat.com/223914-disneyland-update-may-the-force-be-with-you-and-you-and-you/
The scrims around Red Rockets Pizza Port have confirmed that the temporary name change to Pizza Planet for Pixar Fest is going to be permanent when the walls come down from the exterior refurbishment. The new location will have a slight name change to “Alien Pizza Port.” – https://www.micechat.com/223914-disneyland-update-may-the-force-be-with-you-and-you-and-you/
Even if the Gods are angered by all the celebrating, it won’t matter if you have the new Enchanted Tiki Room inspired rain gear. The new gear includes an umbrella with Jose on the handle, and a rain coat. Both are vibrant green with a decorative tiki pattern. – https://wdwnt.com/2019/05/walt-disneys-enchanted-tiki-room-inspired-rain-gear-coming-to-the-disneyland-resort-and-walt-disney-world-may-13th/
As we talked about a few weeks ago, the outdoor seating area for the Carthay Circle Lounge has been completed. The area is small, but fits in a few tables that are separated from the main guest flow by some potted plants. The outdoor seating also acts as a way to advertise to passing guests that a lounge exists inside. – https://www.micechat.com/223914-disneyland-update-may-the-force-be-with-you-and-you-and-you/
A friendly reminder that if you are going to be visiting the resort in the next few weeks that Grad Nights will begin at the resort on May 10th. If you are visiting on a Grad Night, getting the most out of your day in the morning is the best bet, as the parks get pretty crowded as the day goes on. – https://www.mouseplanet.com/12373/Disneyland_Resort_Update_for_May_6__12_2019#news2
There are a lot of options around the resort if you want to treat the special mother in your life for Mother’s Day.

Last week the smoking ban went into effect. We wanted to update you if you needed a smoke break while visiting the park where you could go to do so. The official Disneyland app states that smoking is not allowed in Disneyland, California Adventure, Downtown Disney, or the Esplanade. This leaves exiting security to find anywhere you can smoke. – https://www.micechat.com/223914-disneyland-update-may-the-force-be-with-you-and-you-and-you/
MiceChat posted a rumor about changes that could be coming to Tomorrowland, and does it sound exciting! Rumored changes include installation of the popular Tron coaster that is in Shanghai Disneyland and coming to the Magic Kingdom in 2021, removal of the People Mover tracks, an unspecified change to Space Mountain, removal or shortening of the Monorail, and more. The Tron coaster would be the eye catching feature to draw guests into the land from Main Street, with the monorail being removed to make room for a future Fantasyland addition. – https://www.micechat.com/223809-tomorrowlands-future-at-disneyland/
