Back from a day at Disneyland during my We All Grow summit field trip and had to share some exciting Disneyland and Disney California Adventure information.
We may have missed the Lunar New Year at Disney California Adventure but you can enjoy the 2017 Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival until April 16th along with so many other new attractions.
At Disney California Adventure Park
Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! Opening for summer 2017 at Disney California Adventure Park, this thrilling attraction brings more Super Heroes to the park with a captivating new story:
Guests at Disney California Adventure will join in a daring confrontation with one of the most unusual characters in the park’s history: Tanaleer Tivan, the Collector from the blockbuster film “Guardians of the Galaxy.” He has opened his unique collection of fauna, relics and species to guests for a special tour culminating with his prized possessions: the Guardians of the Galaxy themselves! Fortunately, Rocket, the fearless, genetically modified raccoon from the film, has a plan to free his friends–and that plan includes recruiting Disneyland Resort guests in a sensational rescue effort.
A comically cosmic, rocking adventure, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!will drop guests directly into the story alongside characters from the comic books and the blockbuster films. Anchoring a broader universe of Super Heroes that will grow over time in Disney California Adventure, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! will transform the structure currently housing The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.™ Guests will experience multiple, random and unique ride profiles in which the rise and fall of the gantry lift rocks to the beat of music inspired by the film’s popular soundtrack.
Princess Elena and Super Heroes: In 2017, guests will find more delightful characters than ever before at the Disneyland Resort. These new additions are sure to offer guests many opportunities to create magical memories:
Princess Elena – From toddlers to teens, guests are greeting the brave and adventurous teenager from the Disney Channel series “Elena of Avalor.” Princess Elena is the first Disney Princess inspired by diverse Latin American cultures.
Super Heroes in Hollywood Land – In summer 2017, Disney California Adventure welcomes the Guardians of the Galaxy to join other Super Heroes such as Spiderman and Captain America who will be greeting guests throughout 2017 at the Hollywood Backlot.
At Disneyland Park:
Main Street Electrical Parade: Guests will be dazzled as this beloved and iconic parade returns to its original home, Disneyland Park, for a limited time, from Jan. 20-June 18, 2017. The legendary parade, which premiered in 1972, will once again light up the night, sparking magic, wonder and, for some, a sense of nostalgia with thousands of twinkling lights, the synthesized music of “Baroque Hoedown” and treasured characters from heartwarming Disney stories. Appearing in Disneyland Park for the first time in more than 20 years, the parade will be led by the familiar whimsical train pulling a giant drum unit proudly proclaiming “Disneyland Presents… Main Street Electrical Parade.”
Season of the Force: Star Wars and Disney fans will enjoy out-of-this-galaxy experiences during Season of the Force in Tomorrowland. At Hyperspace Mountain, guests climb aboard the re-imagined Space Mountain attraction and join in an X-wing Starfighter battle as they race through the darkness. Inside Star Wars Launch Bay, guests explore replicas of movie props and models from the new film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and have the opportunity to meet favorite characters like Chewbacca. Young Padawans discover whether they have the makings of a true Jedi at Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple, an interactive experience where they may face villains such as the ominous Darth Vader and the Seventh Sister from the Disney XD series Star Wars Rebels.
Moana: Having sailed among the islands of Oceania on her quest with the demigod Maui, Moana now has come ashore to visit with guests in Adventureland. The daring teenage heroine stars in “Moana,” the new blockbuster film from Walt Disney Animation Studios.
