Cool, I'll fire it up and not open it for the first 4 hours of the day for realism purposes...

I'm just happy for all the terrible Disney anti-fan boys who will have something to complain about once the park reopens!

I’m so glad I don’t live in California...

It's definitely an interesting merchandising gimmick with the web shooters, but

I'll just go with a Funko POP!

Especially since they seem like they're exclusive to the park.

Disney will sell web-slingers for the Spider-Man ride that will change your ride experience.

Holy crap, Disney actually found a way to make a ride pay-to-win.

Sorry to double post, but since it hasn't yet been mentioned, Disneyland made two changes yesterday:

1) As of June 15th, they will begin to admit out-of-state visitors once again.
2) They have changed the online reservations to allow you to schedule a reservation up to 120 days in advance.

Already reserved my three days at the end of August. Really looking forward to finally doing this Disneyland vacation with my son after being in the works for over a year and a half at this point! :)

^Yup! We also booked as KT has become quite the Marvel fan and this was the ONE thing she really wanted to do this summer.

We're looking at the sweet spot between Thanksgiving and Christmas where crowds are light.  This would be our first time with a child (an infant, at that) in tow and I'm sure Child Swap will be getting a workout from us.

I wish you the best of luck!! Hopefully Max Pass is back in use by then. But, the only real light crowd time left is January - February!!

That’s the second video of this ride I’ve seen where there’s no music…

Is something broken or did they just forget to score the whole ride?

Not sure but might be a YouTube copyright issue, maybe for press/media days they have it turned off.

^ maybe that’s it… but what an odd choice. I wouldn’t think Disney of all companies would want to show off their new attraction in such a state.

The launching animatronic Spider-Man outside the ride seems to be the highlight of the area

I'm wondering what the "life expectancy" (w/batteries?) of these Spider Bot toys, is?

And honestly, you really need two of them, to at least have a true Bot Battle, lol. 💸

One Spider Bot, wandering around on it's own, is pretty sad to me. 🕸️

Happy Avengers Campus Opening!

I visited Disneyland (I skipped California Adventure) for Sunday and Monday of this past long Memorial day weekend. Although I did take photos, I don't think that my coverage is really appropriate for a photo trip report, so I'll just do a written summary.

Travelling to Disneyland on a long holiday weekend is usually a massive no-no, and themepark operations under California COVID restrictions were always going to be a bit weird. So this probably not the most well thought out plan, but I think I was hoping that the two would cancel each other out. And I figured visiting right now might be an interesting experience.

At the very least, I think Disneyland wasn't the worst case scenario. In spite of Covid restrictions hurting their ability to efficiently group parties together, almost all lines remained sub-hour throughout the entre day (as always, mornings around park opening were nice) The grouping policy does mean that rides that usually rely on multiple long benches of seats were hurt the most - so It's a Small World, Pirates, and the Disneyland Railroad took massive hits to wait times with the former two really only being able to take at most two parties at a time per boat.

I think the implementation of the social distancing policy in regards to lines was not necessarily intuitive to most guests. Although the queues did have markers, they were placed seemingly inconstantly to try to compensate for how some of the permanent ride queues fold back on themselves. Between this and the pressure to not keep guests indoors meant that most of the queues spilled out into the walkways away from the ride entrances. This was most pronounced near the New Orleans waterfront where the much of the walkways was dominated by the Pirates queue. However, most of these massive lines went faster than expected given that these temporary queues were very sparse due to the social distancing markers. In general, I think the majority of guests were trying on some level to observe social distancing when inside the park.

On a lighter note, this was my first time visiting since they added Starwars: Galaxy's Edge. I was pleasantly surprised by both attractions there. Smuggler Run's simulators are higher quality than I had expected and I quite enjoyed seeing if I could accrue as much damage as possible during the ride (I was piloting by myself). And I was also impressed by how nimble the trackless vehicles on Rise of the Resistance were and how well the digital screens coordinated with the vehicle movement.

The other ride that was new to me was the redesigned Snow White. They made minor changes up through the dungeons scenes, but everything after that has been massively revamped. It is undeniably more coherent now and a much better fit for Disney's target demographics, but I think it is less interesting than the old version. My dumb hot take is that I think that it is probably my least favorite of the Fantasyland dark rides now.

Anyhow, sorry for the wall of text. I might add pictures for this post later.

I'm going 14th 15th and 16th and now Disney got me playing the boarding pass practice game every day at noon :lmao:

 

I got 6 shots at the slot machine, I won the lottery for one of the Tokyo Disneyland shows over 4 days, I'm feeling good about this one!

Disney has announced that fireworks will be returning to Disneyland and Walt Disney World!

For Disneyland, Mickey's Mix Magic will be resuming performances starting on July 4.

https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2021/06/fireworks-spectaculars-are-back-at-disney-parks-this-summer/?fbclid=IwAR2VEVo7zVrcqRU3vjQdeP4QRaeWdlI3DGzOM288ta_ZklhflnRZsk6t3ks

What could be more perfect this year than a summertime visit to a Disney theme park? As we continue to see more communities adjust and ease COVID-19 guidelines, there’s a new sense of optimism with many positive signs moving forward. We’re encouraged by it too, seeing more families making travel plans, friends dining out together more often and more Americans returning to work. And at Disney theme parks, we’re gradually bringing back more of our beloved park experiences.

A Disney tradition since 1957, fireworks shows are what Walt Disney called the perfect “kiss goodnight” at the close of a magical day, and this summer the skies above Disney theme parks will sparkle with color once more. Beginning in July, just in time for the nation’s Independence Day celebrations, our incredibly popular nighttime fireworks spectaculars are returning to Disney parks!

--

As Disneyland park in California welcomes back all guests, the fun starts July 4 with “Mickey’s Mix Magic” presented nightly throughout the summer. State-of-the-art projections, show lighting and lasers will transform Main Street, U.S.A., Sleeping Beauty Castle and the façade of “it’s a small world” into a dazzling, family fun dance party that goes sky high with fireworks to celebrate the leader of the club, Mickey Mouse.

oh a great morning at DCA, super quick to get in, I think I was in the web slinger line by 9am with boarding pass group 11🕷🕸🕸

I've gotten boarding passes at both noon windows, and 1 out of 3 for boarding passes at 7am. hopefully my partner makes it in by noon for a shot at rise of the resistance!!!

update: well my partner didn't make it in until 3pm, but I got a Rise boarding pass! it seems like it's the "full experience" but we where moved passed the first show room as it was coming back from a downtime

overall very good trip!!! love the mobile ordering and losing fastpass wasn't too bad (it feels like we traded ride fastpass for food fastpass 🍔🍕🍸)
