Galaxy’s Edge - No More Reservations
IMG_9049.JPG

The day has finally arrived! If you missed the chance of having a reservation for the first month of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, fear not. Monday, June 24th, 2019 is the first day all park guests will be allowed to enter the park without a reservation. This is very exciting for those who have been patiently waiting their chance to get inside. Oga’s Cantina will also now Be requiring reservations which we knew would have to happen. In case you were not aware already - most people with tickets were not lucky enough to have a less than three-hour wait to get in and many, like myself, were blocked from entering after waiting because our time limit came to an end.

I'm sure you have heard my rants about my bad experiences with the land so far. Lol. However, I did hope that it gets better, and you all start having great experiences there once everything gets squared away. Definitely getting in there on the second day was a major fail, in my opinion, but I completely understand that they have to adjust things. As of right now, they have basically fixed all the flaws that I experienced, so I am excited to see how much better this will get. I'll have to blog a review on the land here soon, but if you have time to watch my 50-minute review on YouTube, you should click my link and head over there right now.

So Much to Celebrate

Wow! Disneyland Resort has really started the new year off in so many ways. The absolutely gorgeous Tropical Hideaway officially opened to guests on January 1st, bringing with it tons of amazing bao buns, sweet lumpia and new twists on the classic Dole Whip. That means there are finally two locations within the park that Dole Whip is sold. Oh boy!

If you remember 2017 set all Disney guests into a shopping frenzy when the premiere of everything rose gold made its way into all Disney stores. 2018 brought guests the overwhelming new color and the world’s new obsession with millennial pink. This year the same idea was put into place with the new color purple. One week ago all the purple you could imagine dyed the park from food to merchandise.

Today, Mickey’s 90th birthday celebration bonanza really kicked off with a huge bang. You will find all the Mickey birthday themed food at various eateries throughout both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. Each food item is said to have a Mickey Mouse shape inside or on top. How fun is that! Now, not only did Mickey spread a bunch of fun food throughout the resort but he also gifted his guests a new firework show at Disneyland Park called Mickey's Mix Magic. Everyone gathered in the parks for the biggest crowd all week since southern California had some of the heaviest rains seen in quite some time over the past week. Luckily the storms left just in time for Mickey to show off his incredibly fun new show.

Even after all of this, the resort will also be hosting the Lunar New Year celebrations at Disney California Adventure Park for the Year of the Pig starting January 25th. Wowzers! So much is happening at the Disneyland Resort as well as Walt Disney World Resort - I don't know how anyone can keep up. Though I'm sure we will try our best to not miss a moment of 2019 and can't wait to see what else is coming.

It's the Holiday Season

The Disneyland Resort is roughly halfway through the holiday festivities that will be coming to an end January 6, 2019. Disney California Adventure is holding its annual Festival of Holidays (FOH), which has been drawing in massive crowds. Actually, both Disneyland Park and DCA have been at what seems to be the highest level of attendance in the past ten years. Disneyland is again offering what park goers refer to as snoap that is a Disney version of snow. It's really soap, but it's bubbles are dispersed through machines that blow all over Main Street is such tony fragments that resemble snow.

The crowds have been what I would call ”horrendous” in comparison to the past few years. Last year in 2017 we all remember the madness of the four-hour security lines, the parks reaching maximum capacity, and the resort parking lots closed to guests. Judging how other non-major holidays have gone in 2018, I think it best to prepare your self for waiting in increasingly long security lines and parking lot closures until the end of the year.

Will you be going to the parks this winter break or will you be avoiding the parks until school starts again? I know I will be without a doubt avoiding the parks for the next two to three weeks. Good luck to all those who are braving the chaos.
