runDisney: Disneyland Canceled

Today the run Disney website had a bit of a makeover, and you can see that all the Disneyland events have been removed off for 2018. Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend for 2017 is the last event to happen at Disneyland.

Since runDisney didn’t open up registration for the upcoming Disneyland events, I think its safe to say we all got the sense that something like this was going to happen. Disney did confirm after they pulled the races off that it is due to the expansion of Disneyland why they decided to put the Disneyland events on a hiatus.

If I am honest, I’m saddened by this hiatus because I was on my way of getting my Legacy medal and another c2c. I am hoping they will honor my Legacy and once the races start up again, I will be back on track for that bling. I do, however (feeling’s aside) think it was smart on Disney’s behalf to put the races on a hiatus during construction. It would have been very chaotic, and people would complain even more if they had to cut back on some stuff or the course wasn’t in the parks as much as before.

DOGtober 2017: Day 13

Starting in two days on Oct. 15, dogs are welcomed at these four  Walt Disney World Hotels:

  • Art of Animation Resort $50/night
  • Port Orleans Riverside Resort $50/night
  • Yacht Club Resort $75/night
  • Cabins at Disney’s Ft. Wilderness Resort $50/night

Guests are allowed a maximum of two dogs per room, and each guest will have access to pet walkways for exercise and green spaces with pet relief areas. During the dog lovers check in our furry friends will receive a Plutos Welcome Kit that includes:

  • A mat
  • Bowls
  • Pet ID tag
  • Plastic disposable bags
  • Puppy pads
  • Pluto’s “Do Not Disturb” sign to notify the staff that a pet is in the room.

Disney also has a partnership with Best Friends Petcare which is an on property full-service pet facility that assists with pet daycare and other pet services (fees apply). Pets will be allowed to stay in guests rooms but expected to be well behaved, on a leash in public resort areas and of course adequately vaccinated. Also, pet merchandise will soon be coming to the participating resorts!

Not being able to have a dog-friendly hotel was my only complaint about visiting WDW, and now I can go more often and not have to find a babysitter for my little love bugs because they will be with me in my hotel room! They have already experienced five years of Disneyland trips and now get to enjoy all of our WDW trips too! What are your thoughts about this new change? Let me know in the comments below!

Hocus Pocus Remake! 

Disney Channel is working on an all-new version of a classic Halloween film that starred Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and the lovely Kathy Najimy. A rumor that’s been going on for years, confirmed by a spokesperson from Disney channel. A new iteration is in development with a script from Scarlet Lacey(The Royals). David Kirshner, the producer of the original Hocus Pocus, is on board as the executive producer. While there is no word about Kenny Ortega taking his rightful place as the director, I hope he comes back to work his magic!

The remake will be DCOM like how the original was supposed to be. Unfortunately, this new DCOM will not have any of the original cast members. The question is, are you on board for a remake of this classic fan favorite? Or would you rather have a sequel with the original Sanderson sister as they return after another 300 years from a virgin lighting the black flame candle? Let me know in the comments below!

Oscar is famous not only for his stories about working with Walt but for his potatoes which are named after him on the menu. Shortly after his 60th anniversary at the park, Oscar was presented with an award special for him. Thank you for bringing that little extra magic to the park, I hope your retirement brings you new adventures!

On This Day: Hong Kong Disneyland

On this day in history, Walt Disney 5th park opened September 12, 2005. It over looks the water of Pennys Bay on Lantau Island, Hong Kong. It’s home to Sleeping Beauty Castle which features computerized strobe light system, which creates a sparkling effect that makes the castle look even more magical at night.

There are three locomotives at Hong Kong Disneyland: Walter E. Disney, a tribute to the man himself: Roy O. Disney, a tribute to Walts brother and co-founder of the company and Frank G Wells who was the president of the Walt Disney Company from 1984-1994. It is also home to the largest Adventureland out of all the Magic Kingdom parks in the world.

Apheta, the collectors assistant, may try to ensure you it’s all just a minor set back and to proceed with caution. Once the sun sets during Halloween time GOTG: Mission Breakout! will transform into GOTG: Monsters After Dark with a new song especially for the ride called “Monsters After Dark” created by the one and only Tyler Bates, the composer of the GOTG Films.
