Enjoy the Last Few Weeks of Summer at Disneyland Resort – With New Magic at Indiana Jones Adventure and More

posted on August 14th, 2013 by Erin Glover, Editorial Content Director, Disneyland Resort

Summer is almost over, but there’s still time left to enjoy all that summertime has to offer at the Disneyland Resort! So plan your visit before the days get shorter and the air gets a chill, and don’t miss:

  • New Curse Unleashed on Indiana Jones Adventure – You’ll never look at Mara the same way again! Come experience the classic attraction for yourself starting today.
  • Summer Nights at the Disneyland Resort – Be sure to catch our summer fireworks spectacular, “Magical,” stroll down Route 66 by the glow of neon lights, and spend an enchanted evening on Buena Vista Street during extended summertime operating hours.
  • More Summer Magic – Meet Mike Wazowski and Sulley dressed in their “Monsters University” school colors at Disney California Adventure park through September 2; also at Disney California Adventure park, dance along with some of your favorite Disney characters at Dancin’ with Disney; and celebrate all things America with Sheriff Woody and friends at Woody’s All-American Roundup in Disneyland park.
  • Limited Time Magic – Our weekly “Limited Time Magic” celebration continues, including the return of some long-lost Disney friends before the end of summer!
  • New Experiences at Disneyland Park – And of course, more time in Disneyland park means more opportunities to enjoy our newest experiences, Fantasy Faire and “Mickey and the Magical Map.”

So, will you be joining us here at the Disneyland Resort before summer ends?

Erin, this is very intriguing. :)

What *is* the “new curse” at the Indiana Jones Adventure? New ride/queue experience?


Erin Glover on August 15th, 2013 at 2:42 pm

Fred … and everyone else who is asking … you have to experience it for yourself! This time I’m not spoiling the surprise. :)


Colleen on August 14th, 2013 at 3:57 pm

Any advance notice on when our long lost friends will be joining us?


Erin Glover on August 15th, 2013 at 2:43 pm

Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog, Colleen. We’ll have an announcement soon.


Chris on August 14th, 2013 at 3:59 pm

I’ll be there with family in tow on the 19th for an early bday celebration.

Whats this “new curse” for indy about?


Tricia from NJ on August 14th, 2013 at 4:01 pm

Be there in 4 days for our first family trip to Disneyland! Can’t wait!! Thanks for the post Erin, as if I’m not excited enough…


Connie on August 14th, 2013 at 4:47 pm

Wait, Indy has a new curse right now? You aren’t talking about the gift rights (i.e., eternal youth, earthly riches, and vision of the future)?


Dennis on August 14th, 2013 at 4:51 pm

When will you do a meet-up? I am talking about the ones WITH you, Erin.


Erin Glover on August 15th, 2013 at 2:44 pm

We’ll have something soon, Dennis! Stay tuned.


Travis on August 14th, 2013 at 5:31 pm

Hi Erin,
I’m really curious about what you mean by “New Curse Unleashed on Indiana Jones Adventure”. Could you explain that a bit more to me?
I’ll be at the park on Saturday and I always go on Indiana as soon as I can. Thanks =)


Rob from WA on August 14th, 2013 at 5:43 pm

We’ll be there for our anniversary September 8-12. Unfortunately, we didn’t know you were going to cut hours back even further from the off-season hours. Your planning calendar still says 8PM for Disneyland, but your current schedule shows 7PM close every weeknight … 5PM close on the 12th! I know you’re staying open until 1AM Friday, and that’s great, but we planned our trip months ago and couldn’t have known the hours would be so short. Seeing a Disney park after dark is a huge amount of the fun for us, and it’s disappointing to know we’ll only get one night out of our trip to see that.


Kenny on August 14th, 2013 at 6:01 pm

Is the “new curse” in Indy permanent or a limited time offering?


Erin Glover on August 15th, 2013 at 2:47 pm

I think this curse will be around for a long time …


Brittany on August 14th, 2013 at 6:28 pm

What exactly has changed on Indiana Jones?


Mike on August 14th, 2013 at 8:36 pm

It’s apparently a new voice track and projection on the Mara statue face at the beginning of the ride (when your going up the hill)


Jason on August 15th, 2013 at 12:09 am

Hmm interesting I’m going to go find out this weekend 😛


Chris on August 15th, 2013 at 12:28 am

For those wondering about indy, its a ride enhancement to the mara statue. looks prett cool.


Christine on August 15th, 2013 at 2:29 am

Ohhh, you guys are such teases about the long lost friends!! When will they be there?


Friend on August 15th, 2013 at 11:59 am

John Hench in his book, describes Indiana Jones as having the Best example of what a Disney Q line should be like. That means making use of the outside Indy camp which guests should be allowed to pass through and experience from the front entrance, and see what Disney Legend John was talking about. I’m disappointed when the fast pass you right into the temple.


Fred from CA on August 19th, 2013 at 2:03 am

I rode on Saturday, and I really like the new Mara effects.

It should be noted that there is a different effect on Mara’s face depending on which door you go through.
