The biggest celebration of Mickey and Minnie in Disneyland history later this year will feature new and enhanced entertainment plus limited-time décor, specialty foods and merchandise as well as “Mickey’s Mix Magic.” Also, we’ll ring in the Year of the Pig during Lunar New Year celebrations at Disney California Adventure park, Jan. 25 through Feb. 17. And of course, in summer 2019, you can live your own Star Wars adventure in a galaxy far, far away and explore Black Spire Outpost!
There’s much more to check out in Michael’s original “Disneyland Resort in 2019” story.
And just in time for vacation planning season, we announced the 2019 Disney Parks Moms Panel this week. A diverse group of 40 members, including 12 new panelists, make up the 2019 Disney Parks Moms Panel.
