Disneyland Theme Park Loses Power On One Of The Busiest Days Of The Year

A power outage at Disneyland took some of the magic out of the day for thousands of guests on Wednesday.

The theme park in Anaheim, California, lost power during one of the busiest weeks of the year at about 11 a.m. local time. KABC reports that the park was near capacity when the outage occurred in both Fantasyland and Toontown.

“We’ve determined that the issue is with a Disneyland Resort transformer and our team is currently assessing and working to restore power,” the park said in a statement to KABC.

A spokesperson for the park told KGTV that the “majority of power” was restored to the park at around noon local time.

The park’s Twitter account said in a post Wednesday afternoon that the park was only accepting re-entry guests.

Several rides, along with the monorail, came to a halt with guests still aboard. Twitter user Geoff Fienberg tweeted that he was “stuck on a fuckin ride” (he later identified it as “It’s a Small World”). In a subsequent update, he wrote that he was “saved, taken off through the under bowles [sic] of Disney.”

Disneyland Resort spokesperson Suzi Brown told HuffPost in a statement that the park was sorry for the inconvenience.

“Crews worked quickly to restore electricity throughout the day, and power to Toontown was restored by noon and by 4 p.m., power was restored to all affected areas,” the statement read. “At this time, all attractions are operating. Disney California Adventure park was not impacted by the outage and was fully operational all day.”

Other guests noted that they were unable to obtain refunds, and said the park’s crowds were unhappy.

How to Keep Your New Years Resolution

Everyone loves to make a resolution- they make us feel productive and improving! The only problem is keeping them can get a little tricky… Whether it is laziness, uncontrollable urges or just forgetfullness, life gets in the way. So here are a couple quick tips for a better you. Here’s to 2018!

1.  Be Very Specific With Your Goals

Having a vauge resolution like “lose weight” seems impossible! Try to simplify and scrutinize the goal, like “drink more water” or “excercise during the commericials” or “no more hot cheetos”. By zoning in on a problem area, the goal seems much more doable and not such a daunting challenge.

2. Don’t Just Create a Goal! Help Yourself!

You’ve got to give yourself a way to get where you want to be, like a map. Give yourself time and a path to your dreams. Be nice to yourself!

3. Get Encouragment from Others!

Telling others about your goals will help you stick to them! It may also encourage others to stick to theirs! Band together with friends and family to improve.

The Best Holiday Chrsitmas Episodes of Your Favorite TV Shows

Holiday Episodes are the best, we can all agree to that. But we onyl get them once a year per show! That is why I have compiled MY personal favorite Christmas/Holiday Episodes of all the Classic TV shows and the new ones. Enjoy!

1. Friends- “The One With the Holiday Armadillo”

In this hilarious Episode, Ross, a new father, wants desperately to give his son a meeting to Santa Claus for Christmas, the only problem, all the costumes are sold out. That is where the Classic and timeless joke of the Holiday Armadillo comes in.

2. The Office- “Christmas Party”

Okay, the office is my all time favorite, so literally any Christmas  episode is my favorite, but this one holds a special place in my heart. In this cringe inducing episode, Michael battles with secret santa and decides to turn it into a game of white elephant. This episode is quite early in the shows history, and therefore the interactions with Jim and Pam and quite simply adorable and the Dwight and Angela gift exchange is just as cute.

3. New Girl- “LAXmas”

In this hilarious story much like “Love Actually”, stories intertwine, yet all take place in an airport. With a perfect cameo from Billy Eichner, we all love this heartwarming but still gut wrenching holiday episode.

4. Bob’s Burgers- “The Last Gingerbread House on the Left”

This one was hard to choose from, all of the Bob’s Burgers christmas episodes are pure gold, but I am a sucker fro Mr. Fischoeder and his insanely weird personality and habits. Not to mention, Linda singing. Yeah, that’s enough said.

Located Inside New Orlean’s square, Club 33 is the most exclusive Disney related place ever. Not only is it the onyl place to get alcohol in Disneyland, but it costs a fortune to get in!

The annual fee costs between 12,500 to 30,000! But look at how pretty it all looks! Do you think it’s worth it?

Should We Bring Back These Vintage Christmas Traditions?

We often revel about the fantasy of the past, but was it all it’s cracked up to be, especially during the holiday season? Let’s find out together.

1.) Popcorn on Christmas Trees

This is just all around disgusting. It really is! Such a waste! Of popcorn and of time! And then what do you to after? Eat it? Throw it away? It makes no sense!

2.) Train Sets Protecting The Tree

I love this one, it is so classic, so perfect. What’s better than having a train run around a tree to protect the goodies inside the presents? Nothing! Some added bonuses, it makes the tree look HUGE and it is a reminder of how many presents to buy, because you cant go outside the circle the train has made!

3.)Adorable Vintage Christmas Cards

These are just also so perfect. Very classy and cutesy, and genuine. They mostly have women on them, being super sassy in their giant poodle skirts, what’s not to love? The colors are vibrant and there’s always a cat or two!

4.) Tinsel. Everywhere

This one is a nightmare, I can imagine, these cheap little tinsel frilly things that both cats and dogs love to eat and then throw up, and you find stuff in your hair when taking a shower, they’re everywhere! Nothing says “tacky” more like a bunch of tinsel on a beautiful tree!

The New Trend At Disneyland

Step aside, rose gold — this is a job for old-school Minnie Mouse.

After Disney fans went wild for the parks’ sparkly pink Minnie ear headbands this August, it seemed impossible that anything else would come close to going instantly viral. Through the end of summer, Halloween, and with Christmas on the horizon, there have been plenty new items worthy of accessorizing with, but none have resonated with theme park fans like Disneyland and Walt Disney World’s brand new vintage-inspired Minnie ears.

The sparkly headbands, which just hit stores last week, are much more than just a trend — they’re a little piece of fashion history. The new pastel ear headbands are inspired by the Minnie Mouse of yesteryear, referencing her appearance in color animations in the mid-1930s and early 1940s.

The sequined blue polka dot ears match her original skirt design — which would later be swapped out for the classic red we know today — while the little wire daisy is a style Minnie would regularly sport poking out from atop her favorite red hat.

The ears are available at shops throughout Disneyland and Walt Disney World for $24.99, and if you see them, move quickly — if it’s anything like we witnessed this summer, these vintage Minnie ears will soon be flying off store shelves.

This throwback Minnie souvenir is just the latest in a run of fan-favorite merchandise coming out of the Disney parks. Guests waited in hour-long lines to snag a popcorn bucket in the shape of Oogie Boogie from “The Nightmare Before Christmas” back in September, and last month’s Pluto popcorn bucket, which features the pup in an ugly Christmas sweater and Santa cap, has been eagerly snapped up by fans on both coasts.

Updates on all things Disney “Star Wars Land”

Star Wars Land is set to open in 2019, and is being worked on right now.

Back in July, a 50 foot scale model of the land was unveiled at the D23 expo in California. “This is the most ambitious land we’ve built to date,” said Bob Chapek, chairman of Walt Disney Co. Parks and Resorts, who introduced the model.

At Disneyland, the “Star Wars” land will be the largest themed expansion in the park’s history and take up 14 acres on the northern edge. Disney officials describe the new land as on a planet “somewhere on the Outer Rim – on the edge of the Unknown Regions.” The Official Name of the park is ‘Galaxy’s Edge’

Galaxy’s Edge is being built to the north of Fronteirland, where Big Thunder Ranch and backstage areas were located. Work began on the land in Spril of 2106 and it was announced that last August.

A family disney vlogger Family, FreshBaked, has been doing a series viedotaping the progress of the land, well, as much progess as they can find. They go on top of buildings and look through holes in walls to try to get a good view of this exciting development, and who can blame them? Needless to say, everyone is excited for the most magical and relevant land we have seen in years.
