We recently told you about the new expansion of Grizzly Peak at Disney California Adventure park, and today we’re excited to open the all-new Smokejumpers Grill. This new quick-service location is the first phase of the Grizzly Peak Airfield addition to this land, in the space formerly known as Condor Flats. As you can see in these photos, Smokejumpers Grill honors the brave men and women who fight wildfires in our California forests. Take a closer look in the gallery below.
It seems a bit repetitive to talk about unique points of view in a land that is meant to be just that … a unique point of view from the perspective of a bug. But I just loved these photos by Disneyland Chief Photographer Paul Hiffmeyer so much that I had to share them with you. Paul takes us up close and personal with some of the famous residents of “a bug’s land” at Disney California Adventure park, showing them as they appear to us when we shrink to the size of a bug upon entering this amazing and larger-than-life land.
What is your favorite unique perspective in “a bug’s land”? Tell us in the comments.
Debuting this month at the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort is a Cinderella Coach inspired apple. It’s safe to say that candy makers got a little ‘carried away’ with this concoction. The apple has been dipped in caramel as well as edible shimmering white chocolate and comes complete with carriage-looking wheels. What are they made of? I guess you’ll have to try one to see!
Another fun way to celebrate the film’s release is with our Cinderella Coach krispy treat, sure to be a fan favorite for any movie-goer.
Here’s a list of locations where you can find them!
The all-day/all-night celebration will begin at 6 a.m. on Friday, May 22 and will conclude 24 hours later at 6 a.m. on Saturday, May 23. The event will include dancing and special character encounters at locations in Disneyland and Disney California Adventure parks, along with enchanting Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration décor throughout the resort and, of course, the shows and attractions that our guests love.
Here’s a look at what is coming when the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration begins May 22:
“Paint the Night” Parade – After dark, along the Disneyland park parade route, 24-hour event guests will be among the first to see the new “Paint the Night” parade, showcasing beloved Disney characters in dazzling parade scenes illuminated with more than 1.5 million individually controlled lights – the first all-LED parade in Disneyland Resort history.
“Disneyland Forever” Fireworks- Disneyland park itself plays a starring role in the “Disneyland Forever” fireworks spectacular, also premiering during the 24-hour event. Breathtaking fireworks shows have long been a Disneyland Resort tradition and “Disneyland Forever” soars to new levels, immersing guests from the tips of their toes to the brilliant pyrotechnic bursts above, thanks to special effects that turn the storefronts of Main Street, U.S.A., the Matterhorn and the facade of “it’s a small world” into gigantic projection screens filled with color, characters and surprises.
Performances were themed to various Disneyland Resort celebrations: “Blast to the Past,” “Circus Fantasy,” “Year of a Million Dreams” and “Show Your Disney Side.” Several participants also volunteered time to teach song and dance numbers to children at the West Anaheim Youth Center, one of ACT Anaheim’s grant recipients.
“Since Flashback’s launch, we have dedicated close to $300,000 to local charities within Orange County and Anaheim,” said Flashback co-creator Glynn Alsup, an attractions area manager. “ACT Anaheim is a great way to touch many of those charities at the same time. It truly is a valuable organization that goes to some great causes.”
According to this post, fishing is best along Big Thunder Trail in the early morning.
Shannon tells us in this post that the inspiration for this series came from walking through Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland park early one morning. She was fascinated by all of the sounds and details she had missed during the daytime.
The recent expansion of Disney California Adventure park gave us even more ways to immerse our guests in new stories, and we’re excited to continue this expanded storytelling this year with the addition of the Grizzly Peak Airfield.
The first phase of this expansion, the all-new Smokejumpers Grill, opens March 20. This new quick-service location takes inspiration from the brave men and women who fight wildfires in our California forests. In addition to a whole new look, the location will feature an updated menu with tasty items like a Bacon Cheddar Burger, Grilled Chicken & Jack Sandwich and Chili Cheeseburger!
This is just the beginning of the Grizzly Peak expansion, which will bring new building exteriors, landscape features and more to the former Condor Flats area. Lush pine trees will bring cool areas of shade, making our guests feel they have been transported to California’s High Sierras.
When the rest of the area opens later this spring, Soarin’ Over California will also reopen with updates to its screen and projection system, bringing a visually enhanced experience. We’ll have more details to share here on the Disney Parks Blog as the project progresses.
On the popcorn buckets at Disneyland park, look for the Fab 5 playing the old piano in front of the Refreshment Corner on Main Street, U.S.A. On the souvenir mug, Mickey and pals invite you to join them in watching a dazzling fireworks display in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle.
No one knows more about shining diamonds than Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs – look for them on the Disney California Adventure park souvenir popcorn bucket. Marcus Gonzalez, Product Development Manager, Novelty Synergy Integration for Disney Parks Food and Beverage, shared his inspiration for the bucket: “Snow White standing in front of Carthay Circle Restaurant and Lounge is an homage to the original Carthay Theater, which premiered ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’ on December 21, 1937.”
On the souvenir mug, look for Mickey and Minnie dressed in their Diamond Celebration best with iconic Disney California Adventure park landmarks behind them.
These novelty items will only be available at food & beverage kiosks throughout Disneyland Resort when the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration kicks off on May 22. Which souvenir item will you add to your collection?
