It has been a busy week here at Chip and Co!  Chip went on the first Marvel Day at Sea of the year on the Disney Magic, Mickey Ice Cream Bars became avalible at some local grocery stores, Figment is going to be the new face on the next Annual Passholder magnets, and so much more!  Check out as we reivew all of this weeks biggest news, food, and fun.

M-I-C   K-E-Y   M-O-U-S-E   Christmas is over, but the gifts just keep coming! We found out this week that the famous Mickey’s Ice Cream bars found in Disney parks is now avalible at select grocery stores around the country. The bars come in a 6 pack and are just slightly smaller than the park originals.  The best part, the entire package retails for around the price of one full-size bar in the park! Get details on this huge news here!

Figment is the new face of the next Annual Passholder magnet coming to the parks just in time to celebrate the International Festival of the Arts at Epcot this spring. You can find the magnet at Mouse Gears in Epcot starting January 18th!  Get it before its gone.

Disneyland debuted a whole new wrap on their monorail to celebrate Mickey and Minnies 90th Birthday celebration!  There is so much coming out this week as part of the celebration like new park treats, clothing, and so much more!

On your mark… get set…go!  The Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend took place this past weekend  January 9-13, and we covered the whole Expo from top to bottom. Many businesses, large and small come out for the Expo. There are so many, they have to house them in the VISA Athletic Center. You could find some smoking good deals on shoes, headphones, headbands, clothes, and more. These are typically only available during Expo hours. Over the year, the exhibitors have offered many runDisney and Disney Character inspiration in their athletic performance gear.

Unless you have been living under a rock you have seen the purple craze that invaded the parks this week! Fans have been asking for more purple for a while, and boy did we get it! From a variety of Purple Potion inspired cupcakes and sweets, to Minnie Ears, and now a Spirit Jersey we can enjoy purple everything! The jersey will be available at both the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts, and come with their corresponding logos. The jersey is a solid majestic purple color, with iridescent logos! Just like the gorgeous bow atop the purple potion ears, this Jersey also has stunning purple and blue glitter detailing. Click here to see a full list of all of the items that came this week.

Disneyland is undergoing some renovations to Sleeping Beauty’s Castle and it is creating an uproar among guests who are visiting the park.  The Sleeping Beauty Castle is different from its counterpart in Walt Disney World. It typically gives guests the ability to walk through and get a glimpse at castle life. During the construction, however, guests are being instructed to use the Big Thunder Trail or Parade Route along the Matterhorn to head back to Fantasyland. The views of the castle are completely obstructed and will remain that way for a few months.

Bob Iger got a raise this week! It was announced that between his stock interests and income from his position, Iger has seen an 80% increase in his pay this year. In 2017 Iger’s salary totaled $36.3 million, down from his 2016 salary of $43.9 million. His 2018 salary was comprised of $2.875 million, $35.5 million in stock awards, and options of $8.3 million. While the salary and stock shares were up the options were unchanged for 2018.

The first Marvel Day at Sea cruise on the Disney Magic took set sail this weekend and Chip was invited aboard to see first hand what kind of adventure awaits cruisers. There are activities that keep everyone occupied during this special cruise – from deck shows to character meet and greets and character sightings.  Guests are encouraged to dress up as their favorite Marvel superhero (or villain)! Adults can even get a glimpse of Star-Lord and Gamora at the Ravagers Night Club. Check out all of the pics here!
