The famous Disney Company Convention, called D23 Expo, just ended in Anaheim. It is an amazing gathering of hard core fans and an exciting announcement fest of NEW DISNEY STUFF! Be it movies, rides, updates, or brand new lands and worlds to visit, Disney bares ALMOST everything during D23.
Here is what the Mousekemoms have learned of the remarkable and controversial changes coming to Disneyland Resort.
California Adventure Land Changes
- Paradise Pier will become Pixar Pier. They say there will be 2 new rides and TONS of Pixar characters to meet and greet. The Incredibles, Inside Out, and Toy Story characters will be featured.
- They say that a celebration call ‘Pixar Fest’ will be unveiled for a limited time during the summer of 2018. We are talking a new fireworks show, special character appearances and all new shows that will knock our socks off.
- One of my favorites, Pixar Play Parade will be moving to Disneyland and a VERY popular attraction, Paint the Night will be coming to California Adventure.
- There is a RUMOR floating around, which I believe to be true at this time, that Bug’s Land will be leaving us. It will be replaced by the Marvel characters and attractions. Not much has been said about this; but there are lots of guesses. HERE’S MINE: Because people with smaller children do NOT want to lose the magic of Bug’s Land to, let’s call it Marvel Land, Disney is building Pixar Pier. Then Marvel Land will not impede on the needed area for little kids. It seems a good idea; but losing Bug’s Land leave me (Kiz) a bit upset. It is a super cute area. But all things must move forward in Disney; so I understand the necessity.
- Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Yes, this is the BIG news that has us all anxiously pining for 2019. This 14-acre land expansion will have two main attractions. 1. You will be able to pilot the Millennium Falcon on a secret mission. 2. You will be a part of the never ending fight for domination between the First Order and the Resistance.
- Character encounters will be plentiful and fun! Think: BB8, Chewbacca, Rex and Kylo Ren.
