A Hot New Disney Parks Collectible is Coming to Disneyland Toontown

We just learned a little more about what's coming with the reopening of Mickey's Toontown (and if you love Disney Parks collectibles, this one's for you). This story, plus freebies you'll love at Disney Aulani in Hawaii and how (and where) to celebrate the Oscars at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort.

Mickey’s Toontown has More to Offer than You May Think

Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland Resort is set to reopen on March 19, 2023 and there are a few extra surprises that may just steal the show.

This week we share a first look at the huge array of tempting snacks and drinks to discover (plus a special new Disney collectible). There are two new food locations: Café Daisy and Good Boy! Grocers. 

Café Daisy is a brand new eatery where Daisy Duck will be showing off her expert culinary skills with the help of our talented Disney culinary teams. 

Daisy’s Dressed-up Dog is an all-beef foot-long hot dog, with chili-cheese sauce, mac & cheese, and Parmesan potato crispies with house-made chips. Want a simpler hot dog, The Daisy Dog is an all-beef foot-long hot dog with house-made chips and you get the option of adding chili-cheese sauce.
The Cheesy Pizza Flop-Over features mozzarella and provolone with tomato sauce while the Pepperoni Pizza Flop-Over has pepperoni, mozzarella, and provolone with tomato sauce. 
The Spring Garden Wrap is plant-based and combines romaine and quinoa in a wrap with a creamy lemon dressing and toasted pumpkin seeds served with house-made chips.
Your little ones can enjoy the Cheese Please! Pizza (cheese and tomato sauce) or the Pepperoni Please! Pizza (pepperoni, cheese, and tomato sauce). There are also bite-size Minnie’s Mini Corn Dogs and a Mini Mac and Cheesy.
Toontown ‘Tater Chips are house-made chips with chili-cheese sauce to add on to any meal. For dessert, Daisy’s Goody-Goody Donuts with cinnamon sugar are an option for a sweet finish to your meal.

Let's not forget the new drinks! The Picnic Time Watermelon Lemonade is a refreshing choice with Minute Maid Zero Sugar Lemonade, watermelon premium syrup, and watermelon gummies. If you like coffee, the Specialty Cold Brrr-ew is made with Joffrey's Caramel Mudslide Cold Brew plus sea salt and whipped topping.

Over at the Toontown Farmers Market there's Good Boy! Grocers. This is a roadside stand with grab-and-go drinks and treats. You'll find pickles, Mini Babybel snack cheese, Coke drinks, water bottles, Topo Chico Sparkling Mineral Water, gluten allergy-friendly cookies, fruit bars, and whole fruit.

The star of the show here is the Perfect Picnic Basket novelty item. After you pick up your basket, you choose three snack-sized items such as Cuties Mandarin Orange, yogurt smoothie, applesauce, granola bar, gluten allergy-friendly fig bar and more. You also pick between a small DASANI water or Minute Maid Juice Box. And if you want the full experiences, get the Perfect Picnic Blanket to go with their basket.


‘Ohana Summer Fun at Disney’s Aulani Resort in Hawaii

Summer holidays aren't that far away so if you are planning a Hawaiian vacation including Disney's Aulani Resort, Disney released a summer holiday resort overview.

Here's a look at some of what Aulani offers so you can start planning now.

A guided Māka‘ika‘i (tour or sightsee) is a great way to explore Aulani and get lots inside info on the resort. There are several different free tour options:

  • Māka‘ika‘i, the Nature and Wildlife of Aulani Resort: This tour takes you on a walking tour of Aulani with an in-depth look at the perfectly curated balance of manmade structures and natural surroundings. An entertaining guide will also highlight the broad canopy of the Waikolohe Valley, the lush space full of “mischievous waters” between the two towers, and the other beautiful natural spaces that call Aulani home.
  • Māka‘ika‘i, The Art of Aulani Resort: When designing Aulani, Disney Imagineers reached out to local artists to help tell the stories of Hawai‘i throughout the resort. This tour how island inspiration helped bring the resort to life. Along the way, a guide will showcase unique interior design aspects, dramatic storytelling murals and one of the largest collections of contemporary Hawaiian artwork on the islands.
The Daily ‘Iwa (aka Aulani’s daily activities schedule) will show available tour times and much more.

Forget Hidden Mickeys...Aulani has something much more Hawaiian

The Menehune are mischievous, shy and maybe even a little magical beings of Hawai‘i. They are known for their skilled craftsmanship, evidence of which may be found by curious guests throughout Aulani. The small Hidden Menehune are uniquely Aulani.
Want to explore furhter? The Menehune Adventure Trail will take you on a high-tech, interactive scavenger hunt for fun surprises. Armed with a special Aulani tablet, you will solve riddles, discover hidden wonders and learn about Hawaiian history and culture along the way. Best of all this is a free adventure and great for kids and adults alike. 

Learn the ‘ukulele

Music is a beautiful and meaningful part of Hawaiian culture. Ukulele sounds are everywhere at Aulani and you can learn to play with fun classes by Aulani cast members in the Pau Hana Room.

It's a 45-minute interactive experience, you'll learn a little Hawaiian instrument history and learn to play a few chords on the ‘ukulele. By the end of the class, you'll be able to play along with some of today’s popular songs.
