There have been many high points for the Walt Disney Corporation in 2018. There have been many highlights for the Disneyland Resort in 2018 as well!! We know of the many highlights to come in the new year, but let’s take a minute to be grateful of how far we have come in 2018!
The many highlights for The Disneyland Resort in 2018 started right off the bat in February. On February 19th the Black Panther and his royal guards arrived at Disney California Adventure park. Located in the Hollywood Backlot area, guests can welcome the king of Wakanda surrounded by the Dora Milaje for a limited-time experience.
The highlights for The Disneyland Resort continued April 13th with the first ever Pixar Fest. This event celebrated friendship and beyond with the “Together Forever- A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular”. As the firework show debuted, the “Paint the Nights” parade and the “Pixar Play Parade” returned! April ended with a bang with an emotional performance from the top 10 contestants on “American Idol” performed in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle.
On May 21st the Disneyland Resort rolled out a new mobile ordering service. The mobile ordering service launched via the Disneyland App. The new app allowed guests to conveniently place orders at select fast casual and quick-service restaurants throughout the parks!
For some guests the highlights for the Disneyland Resort continued when this brassy buccaneer arrived on June 8th. That brassy buccaneer is the one and only Redd headed pirate! To top it all off Pirates of the Caribbean reopened with new magic in New Orleans Square.
In June guests were welcomed to Pixar Pier! Not only did Pixar Pier officially open at Disney California Adventure Park for guests, but the new Incredicoaster was debuted! This new pier offers exciting themed attractions, entertainment, food and more for guests of all ages to enjoy!
In September, which is sure to be a highlight for The Disneyland Resort, is the special visit from Shakira. On break from her world tour, Shakira is seen here visiting Miguel from Disney-Pixar’s “Coco” at Disney California Adventure Park!
This next highlight is my favorite! The reimagined World of Disney store reopened on October 26th! This place is so magical. Guests can now shop in a contemporary designed store complete with many magical touches. Be sure to check this store out in Downtown Disney!
The November Celebration of 90 years of magic with Mickey Mouse was a huge highlight for The Disneyland Resort! This party is so big it will continue into the New Year! You can catch this party with the Get Your Ears On-A Mickey and Minnie Celebration.
We will finish off the highlights with the debut of the Tropical Hideaway on December 21st. This new marketplace is nestled between the Jungle Cruise and Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room. Check out the video of the new room below!! Before you go, did you have a favorite highlight for the Disneyland Resort in 2018?
