Disneyland had mentioned some time back they would be offering some new toffee treats that would be available for a limited time, and that time has finally come!

Starting July 1, they’ll be offering a tantalizing and tart apple covered in creamy caramel, dipped in sweet milk chocolate and topped with crunchy toffee pieces, roasted almonds and chocolate drizzle. But their candy makers didn’t stop there – many of the toffee ingredients used for the apples can also be found on a marshmallow wand and crispy treat.

Look for these delicious treats and more at Candy Palace on Main Street, U.S.A. and Hunny Spot in Critter Country at Disneyland park, Trolley Treats on Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure park and Marceline’s Confectionery in the Downtown Disney District.

Keep in mind, these treats will only be available from July 1-31, or while supplies last. Don’t miss out!

If you’d like to plan a trip to Disneyland to try these new sweet treats, but don’t know where to begin, then contact me today for more information, and to take advantage of my FREE Disney Vacation planning services. I specialize in Disneyland, Walt Disney World, Disney Cruise Line, Disney Aulani resort in Hawaii, as well as Adventures by Disney.

If you’re looking for a great way to cool off this summer at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, then why not take a stroll through the air-conditioned One Man’s Dream? While you’re there, you’ll even have the chance to view the new Pete’s Dragon trailer, starting July 1st.

If you’re on the west coast you can catch the 10-minute trailer at Sunset Showcase theater in Hollywood Land at Disney California Adventure instead.

Disney has this to say about their upcoming film, being released on August 12th:

In “Pete’s Dragon,” old wood carver Mr. Meacham (Robert Redford) has delighted local children for years with his tales of the fierce dragon that resides deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. To his daughter, Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard), who works as a forest ranger, these stories are little more than tall tales…until she meets Pete (Oakes Fegley). Pete is a mysterious 10-year-old with no family and no home who claims to live in the woods with a giant, green dragon named Elliot. And from Pete’s descriptions, Elliot seems remarkably similar to the dragon from Mr. Meacham’s stories. With the help of Natalie (Oona Laurence), an 11-year- old girl whose father Jack (Wes Bentley) owns the local lumber mill, Grace sets out to determine where Pete came from, where he belongs, and the truth about this dragon.

Pete’s dragon will open in theaters on August 12th, 2016. Will you be going to see it?

Guests can now take their Frozen – Live at the Hyperion experience at Disney’s California Adventure Park to the next level with new pre-show packages, priority viewing and dining opportunities. The live show is offered three times daily at 11:30am, 1:35pm and 4:00pm. The following Frozen packages are available to book now for shows beginning June 29th, 2016.

Frozen Pre-Show Package

Enjoy a Frozen themed celebration beginning 1.5 hours prior to the live show at the Hyperion Theater. Guests will gather at Stage 17 at Disney’s California Adventure Park and enjoy delightful treats and photo ops within the winter wonderland of Arendelle. Guests will then be escorted to the Theater for priority viewing and seated just before the show starts.

The celebration at Stage 17 includes:

  • A shave ice treat
  • A beverage station with a selection of beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages
  • Three photo op locations that grant you the chance to seemingly step into the wintry world of Arendelle
  • A gallery of original art designs that were used to create the Frozen – Live at the Hyperion stage show
  • A Magical Snow Moment, in which a royal announcement invites you to join in a magic spell to summon Elsa’s ice powers

Price: $49.00 per person, plus tax, with full payment due at time of booking.

Reservations: This package is available to book online.

carthay-circle-restaurant-00

Frozen Pre-Show Plus Lunch Package 

Prepare your palette for a royal 3-course lunch and pre-show gathering before the performance.

Your jaunt begins with a glamorous visit to Hollywood’s Golden Age, where you’ll indulge in a delicious 3-course meal in the dining room of the Carthay Circle Restaurant—an iconic eatery modeled after the theater where Walt Disney’s animated classic, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs , debuted in 1937.

Once seated, whet your appetite with a stunning starter duo of a soup and salad. Then, choose from 4 main dishes such as chilled red shrimp with coconut-lime mousse, avocado and mango vinaigrette or the grilled angus tri tip with Point Reyes blue cheese risotto, spinach and wild mushrooms. A special kids menu includes a soup or salad and a splendid selection of Mickey Check Meals like mini crispy tacos and a soba noodle bowl.

Everyone—big or small—should save room for something sweet, as Olaf’s Summer Dream Vacation is a delightful dessert.

When this culinary journey comes to a close, your next experience will soon be underway. Approximately 1.5 hours before the performance, you’ll check in at Stage 17 for a special pre-show gathering featuring Frozen-themed magical moments and an assortment of chilled offerings. Then, when this breezy, magical reception winds down, you’ll be invited to the theater and seated in a reserved area for your viewing of the spectacular theatrical production of Frozen – Live at the Hyperion.

Price: $99 per adult and $79 per child (ages 3 to 9), plus tax and gratuity

Reservations: Book online or call Disney Dining at (714) 781-DINE (3463) between the hours of 8:00 AM and 9:00 PM daily. Guests must be 18 years of age or have parent or guardian permission to call.

Carthays

Frozen Signature Dining and Behind-the-Scenes Package

Embark on the ultimate VIP adventure featuring a pre-show gathering, priority seating, guided backstage tour and a sumptuous 4-course meal!

Your royal experience kicks off with a fun-filled pre-show gathering* at Stage 17, which has been transformed into a charming castle courtyard within the wintery world of Arendelle. During this celebration, you can sip on refreshments, enjoy shave ice, snap photos with Frozen-themed backdrops, and more!

Next, you’ll glide over to the Hyperion Theater, slip into your priority seat and take in the spectacular new theatrical production inspired by Frozen.

Once this mesmerizing musical comes to an end, you’ll have the opportunity to step behind the curtain for a glimpse of the show’s elaborately designed costumes, as well as get your photo taken on the performance stage.

Then, for the ice-ing on this sweet venture, anticipate a 4-course prix fixe dinner to remember at the elegant Carthay Circle Restaurant. As you sit, relax and absorb the retro-glam ambience, you can take blissful bites of fine fare including the braised short rib ravioli with morel mushrooms and English pea coulis and a showstopping dessert—Olaf’s Summer Dream Vacation.

*You will have the chance to choose between 2 pre-show gathering times.

Price: $299 per person, plus tax and gratuity

Reservations
Online reservations are not available for this package. To book your Frozen Signature Dining and Behind-the-Scenes Package, call Disney Dining at (714) 781-DINE (3463) between the hours of 8:00 AM and 9:00 PM daily. Guests must be 18 years of age or have parent or guardian permission to call.

Skippers on both the Disneyland and Disney World Jungle Cruise ride have been ordered not to tell anymore jokes about crocodiles eating children in the wake of Tuesday’s tragic event where a 2 year old boy was drown by an alligator near Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort.

The pun heavy Jungle Cruise was full of jokes about crocs eating children and even reference to the famous ‘Ginger Snaps’ crocodile.

Disney has not given word if the jokes will make a return in the future.

There is talk online that Disney will be cutting out crocodiles in some of their other rides and attractions, such as the Tick-Tock Croc in Peter Pan’s Flight and Louis the Alligator from Disney’s The Princess and the Frog which is set to take the stage for the first time tomorrow in the new Magic Kingdom castle stage show Mickey’s Friendship Faire.

Frozen – Live at the Hyperion,” a new theatrical adaptation based on Disney’s animated blockbuster film, opens May 27 at the Hyperion Theater at Disney California Adventure Park in Southern California.

This new theatrical interpretation for the stage immerses audiences in the beloved world of Frozen and takes audiences on the heartwarming journey of Anna and Elsa, with all of the excitement of live theater. Under the direction of Tony Award® nominated Director Liesl Tommy, the show features elaborate costumes and sets, stunning special effects, and show-stopping production numbers. An exceptionally large production, the show features an opening cast and crew of more than 200, six full musical numbers and a 2,200 square foot video wall which combine for an unforgettable theatrical experience.

Disney Creative Entertainment, the arm of Walt Disney Imagineering responsible for live theatrical entertainment at Disney Parks, has produced this new stage interpretation of Frozen – Live at the Hyperion” with all of the creativity and resources of its predecessor “Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular” which ran for a remarkable 13 years at the 2,000 seat Hyperion Theater.

As would be expected from Walt Disney Imagineering and Disney Parks, new technologies – especially with projections, fabrics and special effects — will delight audiences in new and unexpected ways.  Guests are immersed in the world of “Frozen” from the moment they enter the theater and are surrounded by a specially lit “Aurora” curtain. As the musical unfolds, the scenic design and large moving set pieces create a cinema-style energy enhanced by state-of-the-art projections that create dynamic environments for the performers. Custom sound design envelops the audience in music and audio effects. And, of course, there will be snow throughout the interior of the theater – on stage and over the audience.

“Frozen – Live at the Hyperion” is based on the Walt Disney Animation Studios “Frozen,” which is the number one animated feature of all time. It is the winner of two Academy Awards (2014) for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song.

“While our production of ‘Frozen’ stays true to the heart and soul of the film, we have adapted it for the stage so it’s truly a musical theater production that befits our beautiful Hyperion Theater,” said Dana Harrel, creative entertainment executive with Walt Disney Imagineering.  “The goal of this creative team is to take all audiences – including those who know the film, and those new to these characters­ – on this exciting and touching adventure with Anna and Elsa.

“We know that for many in the audience — adults and children alike – this production will be a first or rare theater-going experience, and we want to make it as magical as possible.”

The new adaptation features music and lyrics by the creators of the film score, Kristen Anderson-Lopez (“In Transit,” “Up Here”) and Robert Lopez (“Avenue Q,” “The Book of Mormon,” “Up Here”), and is adapted from the screenplay by four-time Tony Award® nominee Chad Beguelin (“Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular” at Hyperion Theater; Broadway: “Gotta Dance,” “Aladdin,” “The Wedding Singer,” “Elf”).

Frozen – Live at the Hyperion” is directed by Tommy, who was recently nominated for a Tony Award® for her Broadway show “Eclipsed.” The choreographer is Christopher Windom and this is his seventh collaboration with Tommy.  The musical supervisor/arranger/adaptor is Jason Michael Webb, whose Broadway credits include “The Color Purple,” “Motown: The Musical,” “Violet,” and “Memphis.” Clint Ramos, the principal costume designer, was also nominated this year for a Tony Award® for his work on “Eclipsed.”

“I am approaching ‘Frozen’ as I would any new work – to search the story for what resonates most emotionally,  which is the story of the relationship between Anna and Elsa, their coming of age and conquering their worst fears,” explains Director Tommy. “It’s what made the movie so intensely satisfying and fresh. The theatrical version of ‘Frozen’ that my designers and I are creating for the Hyperion builds on the film’s emotional intensity using beautiful performances, thrilling choreography and the most cutting-edge design elements.”

A great amount of creative energies have been employed to bring “Frozen – Live at the Hyperion” to the stage.  Harrel and Tommy have assembled a team of creative talent from both Broadway and Disney to create this production. The principal designers are Robert Brill (scenery), Charles Lapointe (wigs), David Weiner (lighting), Aaron Rhyne (projections) and Broken Chord (audio), and Ramos (costumes).

The challenge of bringing the animated non-human characters of Sven and Olaf to the stage was assigned to master puppet designer Michael Curry, who co-designed with director Julie Taymor the animal creations of “The Lion King” on Broadway, the magic mirror in “Snow White: An Enchanted Musical” at Fantasyland Theatre, and many other Disney parades, shows and projects, as well as projects for Cirque du Soleil and the Metropolitan Opera. Curry’s intricate designs created for Olaf and Sven allow the performers to connect with the characters and bring them to life on stage in new ways.

An entirely separate two-act Broadway production of “Frozen” is currently being prepared by Disney Theatrical Productions and is slated to join Disney Theatrical’s New York productions of “Aladdin” and “The Lion King” for spring 2018 at a theater to be announced. It will have a pre-Broadway engagement starting in summer 2017 in Denver.

Disney FastPass+ service will be available starting May 21 for this limited opportunity to enjoy the classic Soarin’ experience at Epcot.

The classic Soarin’ film based on the popular Disney California Adventure park attraction, Soarin’ Over California, is a multi-sensory adventure with stunning views over California’s popular sites including the Golden Gate Bridge, Napa Valley and Yosemite National Park to name a few. You’ll swear you feel the mist from the ocean. Don’t miss your chance to experience Soarin’ Over California at Disney California Adventure now through June 15, and at Epcot through June 16.

The new film, Soarin’ Around the World, debuts June 17 at Disney California Adventure park at Disneyland Resort and Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort the day after its world premiere at Shanghai Disneyland and highlights landmarks from across the globe.

Check out the adorable new candy apples that will debut on May 22, 2016 at the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts. The Nemo and Dory gourmet apples are inspired by the highly anticipated Disney animated film, “Finding Dory“. The talented team of candy makers provided an inside scoop on how they created these cute little treats.

You’ll find that the Nemo apple has been dipped in caramel, enrobed in white chocolate and then delicately rolled in orange and white sanding sugar, with uniquely cut and dipped marshmallows applied for his fins. Add a few dark chocolate accents for the striping and he’s ready to swim off in your direction.

What about Dory? I couldn’t forget about this delicious treat. The apple has been dipped in caramel and white chocolate and rolled in blue sanding sugar. The fins are once again crafted from marshmallows that are dipped in chocolate and rolled in yellow sanding sugar. Add on a few dark chocolate accents in all the right places, and I guarantee you’ll need a boat to take all of the apples back home with you.

I’m still reeling at how adorable these treats are!

You’ll find them at the following locations:

1997-$5

It’s official folks. Disney Dollars are no longer available to purchase as of today, Saturday May 14th.

The popular form of Disney currency has been collected and enjoyed by guests for the past 29 years. The use of Disney gift cards and other forms of payment have apparently made the souvenir item obsolete. Existing Disney Dollars in circulation will still be accepted as payment at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland.

“It’s a testimony to the enthusiasm and heart of Disney guests and collectors that Disney Dollars remain collectible today,” the Disneyland statement said. “We continue to offer many ways to collect cherished Disney memories in tangible ways.”

Circulation of Disney Dollars began on May 5, 1987 under the watch of Disneyland’s first President, Jack Lindquist.  The fun currency was offered in response to the growing popularity of the Anaheim and Orlando theme parks in the mid 80’s.  Disney characters appeared on the face of the bill and were available in denominations of $1, $5, $10, $20 and $50.

Lindquist’s memoir, “In Service to the Mouse” stated “We set the criteria that our Disney money would always be tied to the price of the U.S. currency, so if a dollar is worth a dollar, a Disney Dollar would be worth a U.S. dollar. That way, the money could be spent in the parks, the same way U.S. currency is.”
