Paint The Night Coming Back Soon?? Let's Hope So!

Today I was out and about and I started to really miss Paint The Night, so I went on Youtube and watched the parade all over again. When I got back home and checked the WDW Magic Forums, I saw that the old Paint The Night thread popped back up, meaning someone posted in it and they posted this screenshot.

After seeing this I instantly got excited and decided to do more research. I did not find anything else besides that and then I got a little sad potentially knowing that maybe that is always on the Disney site. No other mention of Paint The Night appears in any section of the site, but here’s hoping the return of dining packages on the website could signal a very near return for the parade.

What do you think of Paint The Night? Do you want it to come back? Do you care? What is your favorite float on the parade?

Disneyland Adds Smuggler's Run to Fastpass Lineup

After increasing prices on tickets, annual passes, and maxpass, Disney has announced Fastpass will be coming to Smuggler’s Run in the near future. Monster’s Inc. and Autopia were just added to the lineup today as well.

In order to justify increasing the price of Maxpass to $20 this morning, Disney is frantically trying to add as many attractions of all types to the Fastpass lineup to be able to get more families to purchase the service.

Are you excited that Smuggler’s Run will be having Fastpass? This ride was specifically built with a Fastpass line so I do not mind this attraction being on the service, but let me know your thoughts in the comments below!

Disneyland Resort Increases Ticket Prices

It is that time of year again, Disney has released ticket price increases overnight for Disneyland and soon Walt Disney World. Due to soft attendance last year, the increases were small to modest, but still increases nonetheless. The biggest change came to the pricing structure. Disneyland got rid of the (Value, Regular, Peak) tickets and introduced a five tier system.

Ticket TypeOriginalNew
1 Day – 1 Park$104, 129, 149 (Value, Regular, Peak)$104, 114, 124, 139, 154 (Tiers 1 – 5)
1 Day – Park Hopper$154, 179, 199 (Value, Regular, Peak)$159, 169, 179, 194, 209 (Tiers 1 – 5)
2 Day$225$235
2 Day with Park Hopper$280$290
3 Day$300$310
3 Day with Park Hopper$355$365
4 Day$325$340
4 Day with Park Hopper$380$395
5 Day$340$360
5 Day with Park Hopper$395$415

New annual pass prices are below as well.

Pass TypeOriginalNew
Select$399$419
Flex$599$649
Deluxe$799$829
Signature$1149$1199
Signature Plus$1399$1449
Premier$2099$2119

Now fear not as my Disneyland Discount deal is still the same price as well as is the one for SoCal residents. You also hace 10 more days to purchase your tickets at the old prices right here!

What do you think of these new price increases? Will you be going to the parks or getting an annual pass anytime soon?

Fastpass Coming to Monsters Inc. and Autopia at the Disneyland Resort

Wow… so this is one of the negative effects of Maxpass in my opinion. In order to capitalize on the profitability of Maxpass, Disney is now adding attractions to the lineup that do not need it whatsoever.

For those of you that are Disneyland Resort regulars, you know that Autopia and Monsters Inc. rarely ever have a line long enough to warrant a Fastpass. In fact the addition of Fastpass to these two attractions will increase their lines significantly. Disney has not announced when these rides will be added to the lineup, just saying they will be coming soon.

What do you think of these new additions to the Fastpass lineup? As you can tell I am not in favor of them at all, but let me know your thoughts down below and follow this blog for constant theme park updates!

Soarin' Over California Returning to Disney California Adventure… Again!!

Disney blog site Micechat has announced that Soarin’ Over California is coming back to California Adventure for another limited time engagement. This time it will be only during the duration of the Food and Wine Festival which will be February 28th through April 21st.

I still think and hope Disney would make one theater the California version while the other theater would be the World version. They should also re-film the California version so it can be up to date with the World version and make it a permanent offering.

What do you think? Which version do you prefer? Let me know in the comments below!

Spiderman Stuntronic Confirmed for Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure

Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure park

Earlier today Disney confirmed that Spiderman as seen in the concept art will be swinging above the rooftops of Avengers Campus when the land opens later this summer. This will be the stuntronic that Disney has been teasing us with ever since last year and again in the Imagineering Story. Disney has provided a video of this stuntronic testing in a, “top secret location”.

I am super excited this is confirmed by Disney and hopefully it will not be cut like the entertainment in Galaxy’s Edge. What do you think of this news? Are you more excited for Avengers Campus? Are you more excited for the Spiderman ride or stunt show? Let me know in the comments below and follow this blog for more updates on Avengers Campus.

Concept Art For New DVC Tower Revealed

The O.C Register has revealed new concept art for the new DVC tower coming to the Disneyland Hotel. The tower will stand 12 stories and have 350 units which is the largest expansion of DVC units on the West Coast ever. The new tower is beautifully designed with a fresh modern take on the classic style of the older towers of the Disneyland Hotel.

Some people, including me, are speculating if this could be the eventual new design of the Disneyland Hotel towers as well. Ever since the now cancelled 4th hotel was proposed, rumors have been circulating that Disney was planning to tear down the older Disneyland Hotel towers one by one and the 4th hotel would be the new Disneyland Hotel. Now I still think Disney can proceed and do something similar after the DVC tower is built. They can tear one down tower at a time while keeping the other two in operation and rebuild them to match the style of the DVC tower for a brand new modern Disneyland Hotel by 2030.

What do you think will happen with the Disneyland Hotel? What do you think of the look of the DVC tower? Comment below your thoughts and follow this blog for updates on this project as well as other Disney projects!
