In this episode: This week we recap the CHOCWalk, talk about a new VR experience coming to both Downtown Disney and Disney Springs, Summer of Heroes is ending and Halloween time is lurking around the corner at the Disneyland resort.

We had an amazing time at the CHOCWalk this last weekend! The energy was great as we walked though Disneyland and California Adventure to benefit the Children’s Hospital of Orange County. As of this post we have raised $4,841! That’s a tremendous amount to help many sick children. Thank you to all that played a part in making that happen. You have all helped make the world a slightly better place. 🙂 Big thanks goes out to all of our team members that worked hard at making this possible:

We are expecting a fun experience when Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout! gets its first Halloween overlay called ‘Monsters After Dark’! We also talk about Halloween time coming to DCA and some of the additions as ‘Radiator Springs’ becomes ‘Radiator Screams’. We would , however, still really like to see DCA become the “adult” Halloween experience at the resort while keeping Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland proper. We originally talked about this in Ep120: Plusing Halloween Time when we talked about bringing a similar experience to the one at Hong Kong Disneyland. This year in Hong Kong guests will be able to experience something called ‘Maze of Madness: The Nightmare Experiment Continues’. The attraction is based on entering the lab of a professor (who has seemingly become crazy) and you see a much darker side of Disney stories than what is presented here including the Monster’s Inc. scare floor, rooms based on Beauty and the Beast and Hercules, Stromboli’s Wagon and the Mad Hatter’s Shoppe. To give you an idea check out this video from last year that our pal Keith took when he visited Hong Kong’s park:

The VOID creates VR experiences and has partners with Lucasfilm to bring a Star Wars experience to Downtown Disney and Disney Springs. At Downtown Disney (Anaheim) the stores Fossil and Vault 28 will be closing to make room for this new attraction. To give you an idea of how this works, check out the video below:

Until next time! °o°
