This week, full menus were released for the marketplace booths at Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, Disney MaxPass is coming to Disneyland Resort July 19, and we get a first detailed look of Star Wars Land from the D23 Expo. Let’s take a look!
Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! opened at Disney California Adventure park back in May and has been very popular with guests, with some waiting over 5 hours to experience the attraction. Fans just can’t get enough of the adventure starring their favorite characters from the films and comics and want to experience it again and again.
So, for a limited time, Disney is offering an exclusive perk for Disneyland Resort hotel guests: “Extra” Extra Magic Hour to enjoy Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! one hour after Disney California Adventure park closes, on select days.
Guests staying at the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort can enjoy “Extra” Extra Magic Hour during the following dates and times:
July 23 through August 30 (Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays)*, available one hour after park closes; separate theme park admission and valid hotel key card required
This “Extra” Extra Magic Hour offering is an additional bonus to staying at the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort. As a registered Disneyland Resort hotel guest, you’ll not only have easy access to both Disneyland Resort theme parks, but also an early morning admission option—Extra Magic Hour*—to a designated theme park on select mornings (separate theme park admission and valid hotel key card required)!
The D23 Expo’s Disney Legends Awards Ceremony took place this morning with surprise Disney Legend announcement. Whoopi Goldberg would join previously announced Disney Legend honorees: Oprah Winfrey, Stan Lee, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher.
Whoopi’s Disney credits include the voice of Shenzi the hyena in The Lion King and she currently hosts The View on ABC.
Mission: SPACE at Epcot closed June 5 for refurbishment and was slated to reopen at the end of this month. It now looks like the refurbishment has been extended, at least through the month of September. We’ll keep you posted when an exact reopening date is announced.
