Today at 10am the tickets went on sale for the D23 event for Hocus Pocus and I’m not even kidding they sold out in like two minutes! For me I’m use to ticketed events selling out fast because I sign up for runDisney events all the time BUT this had to be a major record!
I bought my tickets at 10am, filled everything out and then BAYUM 3 minutes later when I got back to the upcoming events page ‘Sold Out’! My mind was blown! Not only did I get the first event that I wanted to attend as a D23 member I also get to meet other hocus Pocus fans. Are you a fan of Hocus Pocus?
The popular fast casual Earl of Sandwich will be returning to its original location in Disneyland’s Downtown Disney District for a limited time!
It’s suggested that the return of everyone’s favorite sandwich spot is due to the fight between Disney and the Anaheim City Council over the tax breaks for Disney’s luxury hotel. So we might be waiting a good amount of time before construction starts for the new hotel in DTD but I know I’m happy that Earl has returned! What are your thoughts?
For the D23 Gold Members, there will be a 25 Years of Hocus Pocus happening Oct. 28, 2018 at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank Ca. As you probably guessed, from all the Hocus Pocus I have been talking about, I have to go to this event…so, I did soemthing crazy and bought a D23 Gold Family Membership to attend this Hocus Pocus event.
Yes, I purchased a D23 membership for Hocus Pocus because I am that ridiculous and crazy…but hear me out…Kenny Ortega will be there doing a behind the scenes Q&A. If you do not know who Kenny Ortega is, I will update you right now on some of the Disney films he has directed:
- Newsies (1992)
- Hocus Pocus (1993)
- High School Musical 1, 2, & 3 (2006, 2007 & 2008)
- The Cheetah Girls 2 (2006)
- Descendants (2015)
- Descendants 2 (2017)
- Descendants (2019)
He is a brilliant director, and ever since watching Newsies, I have ALWAYS wanted to meet Kenny because I think he is AMAZING! During this event, we will also watch Hocus Pocus in the historic Studio Theater where we will also be receiving the Official Disney Fan Club popcorn bucket (filled with popcorn), bottled water and an exclusive set of collectible Hocus Pocus mugs created especially for the celebration.
Now, I was personally sold at Kenny Ortega Q&A but reading on I am completely stoked for this event. Tickets will go on sale for September 18, 2018, so wish me luck on getting tickets to this event!
At the Disneyland Resort you can find not one, not two but THREE different colored poison apple glow cubes. If you are like me, you will want all three of them because even though for something so simple but so cool! So here are the colors and places I got the Poison Apple Glow Cubes!
Green Poison Apple:
Mint Julep Bar- Disneyland
Red Poison Apple:
Red Rose Tavern- Disneyland
Purple Poison Apple:
Carthay Circle Restaurant – Disney California Adventure (Poison Appletini)
There are a three topics I wanted to talk about: Vampirina, Lady and the Tramp, and of course Avengers 4! So Here’ts whats happening today!
Vampirina- Sept. 7, 2018 Vampirina made her debut at Magic Kingdom and Disney California Adventure Park. I think she is the cutest character ever and I had to meet her at DCA.
Lady and the Tramp- The 1955 Disney class Lady and the Tramp will be adapted into a love-action and CG Hybrid which will be directed by Charlie Bean (The Lego Ninjago Movie’s). The voice of everyones favorite stray will be Justin Theroux and for miss lady Tessa Thompson ( Thor: Ragnorak). This movie will NOT go into theaters but will be the first of its kind to be streamed on Disney’s new unnamed digital streaming service which will debut in 2019.
Avengers 4- If you are a Marvel fan there is A LOT riding on Avengers 4. I mean Thanos managed to claim lives of some Avengers leaving the rest to call in a reinforcement or two…Roket, Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Ant-Man, Okoye, M’Baku, War Machine, and Nebula. We got an early look at Captain Marvel’s new costume, The Hulk gets nice updated costume along with Captain America. There are rumors that Marvel will be killing off Drax…which is quite sad for me because I really do enjoy his character, I find him pretty funny. The film is said to come out May 3, 2019.
What are you most excited for? Let me know in the comments below.
Thank you Disney for bringing back GOTG:MAD! It made it’s premier last year (2017), it’s a holiday overlay for Mission Breakout! The overlay is a new experience for guests givng a seventh ride profile for the attraction, it starts at 5pm during Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort. IT has a unique pre show lighting which makes the attraction even more magical.
Personally, I thought it was pretty awesome experience and I can’t wait to go back and experience it again. What are your thoughts on Guardians of the Galaxy: Monsters After Dark?
I had so much fun with the family this weekend, the only downside to the trip was I got sick and was unable to eat EVERYTHING I was hoping to eat this trip but other then that it was perfection.
Although being sick, I did make sure to bring home a ton of foods, and I used the food money to bring home a ton of merchandise. I did however if you know me I had to get my Papa’s (potato pancakes) that I am really OBSESSED with.
My grandma and I were able to get our Coco Cup, she actually made sure she was going to get it and waited outside of Rancho del Zocalo for 30 minutes and was the fourth person in line, but hey we got them and they are adorable!
For my park bag I brought my Cauldron bucket from (MNSSHP),it actually fit everything I needed it to and some, I was stopped A TON for it so make sure if you want them get to the parks early because I have a feeling they will sell out fast. I also wore my Amuk, Amuk, Amuk Hocus Pocus A Villain Spectacular Spirit Jersey and was stopped twice with people referencing the movie to me and I absolutelu died. I LOVE HP so it made my day even more magical.
My cousin and I waited 25 minutes for Incredicoaster and LOVED IT. We also waited about 10 minutes for Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy (FP), 15 minuted for GOTG: Mission Breakout and about 30 minutes for GOTG: Monsters After Dark which we both LOVED and experienced for the first time. It was an awesome time and we made a ton more memories in the parks!
Friday September 7, 2018 is the OFFICIAL start to the Holiday season in the parks. Haunted Mansion Holiday is up and running and I can’t wait to see the 2018 Gingerbread house and smell all the fun smells in the Haunted Mansion. I am also excited for Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy and of course Guardians of the Galaxy: Monsters After Dark!
What is your favorite thing about Halloween in the park?
