The Happiest News on Earth​

Jingle all away

Disneyland has confirmed that The Jingle Cruise holiday overlay of the World Famous Jungle Cruise will not happen this year. The Adventureland attraction will remain open in its current form through the season. This perennial is a joy just as it is no matter the season!

The Smokiest Place on Earth

The orange skies above are not an elaborate Disney Halloween decoration. A wild fire designated Canyon Fire 2 is burning in Anaheim Hills about 15 miles north-east of the resort. The blaze as of this writing is 8,000 acres and has destroyed over 2 dozens structures. Many local schools and businesses have been closed, with 5,000 homes under mandatory evacuation. Today the fire is 85% contained

Changing in Downtown Disney

In less time then it takes to build a snowman Disney has quietly re-themed Anna and Elsa's make over area in Downtown Disney. The renamed Dream Boutique still caters to ages 3-12, With a wide assortment of clothing and costumes themed to the Disney Princesses. The transformation station which offered services to royal girls and boys has stopped operating.The Bibidi Bobidi Boutique in Disneyland Park's Fantasyland still does makeovers. Frozen packages start at $64.95, and appointments are available 60 days in advance by calling (714) 781-STYLE (7895).

As mentioned in previous UPdates Downtown Disney has lost other haberdashers recently., Chapel Hats, Fossil and Vault 28 have all closed. The Chapel Hats space will eventually be used for additional dining offerings, but at least through the holiday season the space will be used as a temporary retail home for Vault 28's The Dress Shop line through the holiday season. The combined Vault 28 and Fossil spaces will be used for a new Star Wars virtual reality experience.
