Disney California Adventure’s Pixar Pier – First Look Guide & Review
June 21, 2018

"Disney’s big new summer attraction this year is a whole ‘new’ land . . . Pixar Pier. Well, not completely new, more of a reimagining. But the change between the old Paradise Pier and the new Pixar Pier is pronounced. The attention to detail has been increased, there are far more characters, there’s more storytelling, there’s upbeat music from the Pixar films you love, new food, new entertainment . . . it’s very much a new experience worth seeing. But before we dive in, one word of caution, the land is NOT finished. The carousel, new Inside Out ride, and Bing Bong’s Confectionary are not complete and will open at a later date. And due to heavy marketing, it is likely that this land (and the Incredicoaster in particular) is going to be packed for the foreseeable future."

Pixar Pier: Lamplight Lounge is Love at First Bite
June 22, 2018

"The all-new Lamplight Lounge is sure to be a fan favorite! The reimagined location of the former Ariel’s Grotto and Cove bar offers a new, playful menu of casual gastro-pub cuisine and uniquely themed signature cocktails. This new seaside lounge also boasts an all new full bar and 2 stories of picturesque waterfront views of Paradise Bay. Fans of the old Cove Bar will be delighted to know that the outdoor bar remains for those without reservations."

Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland Park Returns with New Magic

Disney Parks Blog


Disneyland Update – Pirates for the #MeToo Generation
June 11, 2018

"The redo of the Redhead scene at Disneyland’s Pirates of the Caribbean is complete. Visually, it’s similar in feel to the old Buy a Bride scene.  The main difference is that the Redhead is no longer a voluptuous maiden awaiting her fate. She’s now a pirate herself. One who isn’t happy about the auctioning of hens. It’s the rum she wants. Additionally, instead of a lineup of potential brides, we now see villagers hauling looted goods. The new dialogue, while a bit cringe-worthy, is heavily inspired by the original bride auction.  Phrases start in a way that will seem familiar and end with their new purpose. It does seem a bit forced, but overall it works for me.

The big surprise had nothing to do with the auction scene but rather with the former Davy Jones cave (following the treasure scene). The projection mist screen is now gone (good riddance) and replaced by a new pirate ensnared in a booby trap with a pilfering octopus nearby. But that’s not all, with Davy Jones gone, they were able to restore the original cave soundtrack “No fear of evil curses . . . ” A delightful return to the past."
