Disney History

9th August 1934 - Walt Disney outlines the story for his first full length animated feature film - Snow White. 

11th August 2014 - Robin Williams passed away. 

What you must do and see this summer at the Disneyland Resort

You must catch the Main Street Electrical Parade before it ends on the 1st September as well as Disneyland Forever fireworks that also end on that day. 

The Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage has re-opened!

Catch the offerings for Celebrate Soulfully, which is around til the 5th September. 

The Disneyland All-American Band is performing throughout the summer until 12th August. 

Plus lots of food and drink offerings!

Magic Band +

Costs $34.99 or $44.99 plus tax and includes a charger (these are available to buy if lost for $7.99) but there is a $10 discount for Walt Disney World hotel guests if bought prior to arrival. 

The Positives

Lots of really cool, and perhaps collectable, designs. 

Can enhance park experiences via in park quests (Batuu Bounter Hunters and collecting the Fab 50 statues).  

Interacts with the nighttime fireworks.

The Negatives

When bought, may not have any charge.

Charge does not last long. 

Who wants to look at a watch when there is amazing fireworks filling the skies. 

Interactivity with statues is a bit hit and miss.
