Southern California Passport for Disneyland Temporarily Discontinued

Disneyland has temporarily suspended sales of the Southern California Passport.  This annual pass allows guests to enter both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure on specific days of the year.  Although new passes are not being sold, current Southern California Passport holders will be able to renew.

According to The Orange Country Register, this hiatus is only temporary.

“Our annual passes are very popular with guests,” said Michele Himmelberg, a Disneyland spokeswoman.  “We continuously seek the appropriate balance that helps manage demand for our product and allows us to deliver a world-class experience for all guests.”

Sneak Peek of ‘Olaf’s Frozen Adventure’ Featurette Now Showing at Disney California Adventure

If you’re excited to see the new “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure” featurette which will be released with Disney/Pixar’s ‘Coco’, then you’ll want to check out the special  5-minute sneak peek presented prior to performances of, “Frozen – Live at the Hyperion,” at Disney California Adventure park. The preview offers an advance look at a sequence from the featurette, including Olaf’s delightful new song, “That Time of Year.”

According to Disney, in “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure,” Olaf (voice of Josh Gad) teams up with Sven on a merry mission. It’s the first holiday season since the gates reopened and Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) and Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel) host a celebration for all of Arendelle. When the townspeople unexpectedly leave early to enjoy their individual holiday customs, the sisters realize they have no family traditions of their own. So, Olaf sets out to comb the kingdom to bring home the best traditions and save this first Christmas for his friends.

You’ll want to hurry because this special sneak peek will only be available for a limited time.   “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure” opens in front of Disney•Pixar’s original feature “Coco” in U.S. theaters on November 22, 2017.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Planet Name Announced

Disney has revealed that the planet guests will be visiting in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is Batuu.  The updated Star Tours attraction which debuted today, ends the journey by landing on the remote planet and promises “there are more adventures to come”.

According to Disney, this remote outpost on the galaxy’s edge was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes, but its prominence was bypassed by the rise of hyperspace travel. Now home to those who prefer to stay out of the mainstream, it has become a thriving port for smugglers, rogue traders and adventurers traveling between the frontier and uncharted space. It’s also a convenient safe haven for those intent on avoiding the expanding reach of the First Order. While Batuu may be new to us, it is clearly already familiar to many characters from the Star Wars saga as a stepping off point for epic adventures.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is scheduled to open at Disneyland park  and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2019.
