P. 391: All the details about Disney Merriest Nites at Disneyland!

Recommended Posts

Disney fans are collectively losing their minds (and breaking open their piggy banks) today over news that the long-rumored high-end 21 Royal restaurant at Disneyland is now very, very real.

 

Disney Parks fan site WDW News Today is reporting that the ultra luxe 21 Royal is accepting reservations as of yesterday, with the premier experience costing a whopping $15,000. Don’t worry, that does include park admission, valet, tax, and tip.

 

So what do you get for your $15,000? A private dinner for twelve guests only, tucked into an amazingly opulent room at 21 Royal Street, which apparently was part Walt Disney’s apartment plans above New Orleans Square. The guided seven-course menu is created individually for each group by chef de cuisine Justin Monson, and includes wines from sommelier Matt Ellingson, as well as an opening cocktail reception.

 

While there, you’ll also get a winding history lesson on some of the finer points of not only the park, but of Disney the man. And when all is said and done, you’ll be able to retreat to a private balcony overlooking the park for coffee and petit fours.

 

The private dining experience is only available for those willing to pony up a cool $1,250 a head (again, that’s all-in though), but given the volume that a place like Disneyland does, there are sure to be more than a few willing participants. Want to throw down the cash yourself? 21 Royal is taking reservations now.

Love this idea...make money wherever they can. I'm surprised they didn't put the "dream suite" up for sale too.

Maybe Airbnb can sponsor the Dream Suite and make it available to the public. The security deposit would be INSANE!

Star Wars-Themed Lands at Disney Parks Set to Open in 2019

George Savvas

by George Savvas, Public Relations Director, Disneyland Resort

 

Our new Star Wars-themed lands at Disneyland park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be opening in 2019! Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger just made the announcement many of you have been so anxious to hear during today’s Walt Disney Company Q1 FY17 Earnings call.

Star Wars-Themed Lands at Disney Parks Set to Open in 2019

 

As we’ve shared, the Star Wars-themed lands are the largest-ever, single-themed land expansions at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts. At each location, guests will be transported to a never-before-seen planet – a remote trading port and one of the last stops before wild space – where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life. Check out some of our earlier images, including a glimpse at one of the signature attractions which lets you take the controls of the Millennium Falcon!

 

There will be more exciting updates to share in the future as work progresses on each of these galactic lands. Keep checking the Disney Parks Blog for the latest.

Woot! I am excited for this!!!!

 

I am surprised that the Florida version will open within the same calendar year. Anaheim is considerably ahead in construction. And, I would think the weather in Florida might slow stuff down. But, I appreciate their ambitious schedule!!

^ Perfect! I'm hoping to get back to Knott's and Disney in September 2019.

And hopefully with another West Coast Bash happening, too. But still. The timing will

be pretty good, after Star Wars Land has had it's "shake down" for it's first summer.

 

Awesome!

^ You're young. You'll be fine. Patience.

 

I'm trying to juggle all the new stuff coming up in Disney Japan, Hong Kong,

and maybe (eventually) Shanghai. The years 2020-2023 appear to be

good for traveling all over there.

I know. But I am closely following the construction progress every day from my apartment in Copenhagen and as soon as there's even a hint of a soft opening I'm booking a flight to L.A!

So, is it Avatar in 2017, Toy Story Land in 2018, and then Star Wars in 2019 for Florida? That is an incredible run of new lands for guests to explore. For California, not quite as grand, refurbishments/remodeling in 2017, 2018 kind of blank so far, 2019 Star Wars land, and 2020 is rumored Marvel land. Although I think "Marvel land" attractions will remain highly staggered. GOTG remodel 2017, Marvel Coaster 2020 as rumors suggest. The muppet/monsters dead zone in Hollywood will be around for awhile. I read a summary of their quarterly results , and the parks/resorts are a nice bright spot for the company, only ESPN weighing them down still.

Isn't 2018 when the new east parking garage and pedestrian bridge supposed to open? I mean, that's something, right?

Anyone have thoughts on the rumor that as of Sunday monthly payments for passes will no longer available (along with a possible small price reduction in at least the higher passes)? I think it's the only way to help with crowds, although a lot of people are going to be pissed off.

I tried asking at miceage but didn't really get an answer, so does anyone here know what the plans are for this very flat looking rock wall along the new track? Considering how much detail they're putting in the rest of the area it seems strange to have a flat wall with something that looks like rock paneling from like a diner.

It's under construction with probably 2 1/2 years to go, at minimum. Anyone sniping about how lousy the theming is isn't worth reading.

 

Sorry, I was under the impression that the area in question is expected to be finished in 4-5 months along with the new ROA/Railway makeover, true or false?

The only people who would be pissed are the ones who believe that monthly payments are the only way they can afford to have an AP, and then project their entitled attitude as frustration at Disney for taking it away. The kind that have an AP just to pop in for a few hours whenever they feel like it and spend relatively little.

 

I'm sure the families who drop thousands on once a year or once in a lifetime trips, who've never had the ability to pay monthly for their trip outside of credit financing, will enjoy having less of these people cramming the park.

Don't be sorry. You were asking about it. Not 'sniping' as it was suggested. There is a difference, between the two.

Thank you.

Although likening the wall to that of a diner might have been a bit much on my part.

^ But since you did bring it up, I was under the impression that ALL of any backdrop/rock work to the Disneyland Railroad,

was supposed to be finished by the summer, so that the trains could re-open, etc. New trees and landscaping too, I assumed.

 

What I remember reading.

That is where the train will go past, before it goes into the new tunnel there. And you can expect it to be done when the train opens. you were correct in your thinking.

Yeah, that has been my impression as well! That's also why I was asking, because if that is the case then it would not be unreasonable to assume that what we're seeing of the facade in question is what the entire wall will look like once it's finished.
