Mickey’s Mix Magic
A new nighttime event is coming to Disneyland! Mickey’s Mix Magic will be a nightly party of song, projection, lights and lasers to get your feet moving and your heart fluttering with the magic of Disney.
The event will take place on Main Street USA, the water screens on Rivers of America and the front of It’s a Small World. These locations will be transformed by sight, color and the sounds of Disney for this brand new nighttime spectacular.
Even more exciting, on select nights, fireworks will also be added to bring even more magic to Main Street. The event will continue with a Disney dance party for all ages to celebrate our favorite mouse couple!
DJ Mickey will be jammin’ out at the party and will be spinning your favorite tunes such as, “It’s a Good Time”, “Friend Like Me” and “Grin Grinning Ghosts”. Be sure to check out the entertainment schedule for Disneyland to know which nights will include the additional fireworks.
Viewing for this new event will also be available at Rivers of America when Fantasmic! returns to Disneyland this spring.
Retro Style Apparel
Disneyland is bringing the retro and vintage style apparel to the parks that include vintage blues, burnt oranges, yellows and retro vibes that take us straight back the sixties. Be on the lookout for the throwback merch in Disneyland this Spring.
There is also a great varsity jacket to bring your Mickey “Grease” vibes to life. I know, not Disney, but everyone can have a good giggle visualizing Mickey Mouse as Danny Zuko, if you aren’t old enough to get that reference, watch “Grease”, you’ll thank me later.
In addition, there is also throwback rainbow gear as well. Love the bright colors and vintage designs of this new line.
Black Tap Sugar High
The Instagram phenom Black Tap, is coming toe Downtown Disney at Disneyland. The opening of this New York City based chain was first announced back in 2017 and the much anticipated opening had crowds wrapped around the building.
The restaurant is best known for what they call “Crazy Shakes” and several are also available to go.
According to owner Chris Barish when asked about bringing his over the top shakes to Disney, “It’s the perfect spot for us and we can’t wait to open and welcome new and long-time fans of Black Tap. Downtown Disney guests can expect a fun and over-the-top experience. At Black Tap, we bring together great ‘80s pop and ’90s hip hop music, cool and engaging design, energetic team members, and of course, amazing burgers and famous CrazyShakes, to create a one-of-a-kind experience.”
The original Black Tap location opened in 2015 in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood and is arguably the spot that started this sweet trend of sky high, crazy milkshakes. Since then, they have opened three more location in NYC, one in Singapore, a Vegas location and now one if Disneyland.
