    The 4 BIG Updates From Disneyland This Month (February 2020)

    Disneyland Resort is already having a huge 2020, with Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance drawing huge crowds to Disneyland Park, and the new Avengers Campus California set to open in just a few months at Disney California Adventure. If you are a fan of Disney’s West Coast resort, here are all the changes you need to know about, including the addition of a high-flying animatronic that will wow guests this summer! 

    1. Spider-Man “Stuntronic” to flip and fly high above Disney California Adventure soon! 

    Guests visiting Disney California Adventure Park this summer will be able to look up catch a glimpse of something truly spectacular: the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man himself swinging above the rooftops of Avengers Campus! You can check out the video above to see this advanced tech in action! And best of all, this superhero will be debuting before the opening of Avengers Campus California, as Spider-Man will be flying around Hollywood Land later this year before this land opens. 

    This amazing new animatronic uses Disney Imagineering’s “Stuntronic” robotic figures, which can perform extreme aerial maneuvers 60 feet in the air, making real-time decisions for when to tuck, turn, and stick the perfect landing. You can see a video of this technology in development below: 

    2. Disney shares another sneak peek at Magic Happens parade

    The all new Magic Happens daytime parade is coming to Disneyland in just a few weeks on February 28th. This new parade will celebrate moments of magic from Disney and Pixar stories like Moana, Frozen 2, and Coco, which will be brought to life on a grand scale with stunning floats, artistic costumes and imaginative music co-composed by singer-songwriter Todrick Hall.

    In anticipation of this new show Disney has shared another behind the scenes look at the parade floats in various stages of production, including units based on The Sword in the Stone, The Princess and the Frog, and Sleeping Beauty. You can check out the full video above. 

    3. Star Wars Nite announced for Disneyland After Dark this August 

    So far Disneyland After Dark has been a hit in 2020 (the recent 80s Nite drew massive crowds and the upcoming Sweethearts Nite is almost sold out!) but if you are looking to visit a Galaxy Far, Far Away after dark this summer you can do just that on August 27th! During this special Star Wars Nite Disneyland: After Dark guests will be able to experience the following:

    • Access to Disneyland Park after hours beginning at 6pm
    • Star Wars themed fireworks, galactic dance parties and character encounters
    • Enhanced décor, exclusive event merchandise and Star Wars inspired food and beverages
    • Immersive Star Wars themed photo-ops
    • Unlimited digital downloads of Disney PhotoPass pictures taken during the party

    Details about tickets and pricing will be made available at a later date.
