A theme park, as the man once said, is not a museum. Change is built into the DNA of a theme park, and the biggest kind of change comes in the form of an entirely new section built into the existing bones of such a park. Think of the hubris of building a new land into Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California. Think of the high expense of creating such a land, of trying to create massive buzz around its arrival, and then opening well before any actual attractions would be ready. Current fans of the Disney theme parks may have a fixed image in their minds of what that land is. Maybe you’re thinking of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, which opened in Disneyland before its true marquee attraction, Rise of the Resistance, was ready for guests. Or maybe you’re even more current, imagining Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure, which arrived years before its E-Ticket attraction would be ready.
Think back further. Think back to the first land added to Disneyland Park after its opening in 1955. Think of New Orleans Square, home to two of the most beloved attractions in Disney history, a land that opened 55 years ago without any attractions at all.

The first season of Neil Gaiman‘s The Sandman, adapted for the audio format from his landmark DC Vertigo comic of the same name, was a runaway success last summer. Released on July 15, 2020, it became the best-selling Audible Original in the company’s history, occupying the #1 spot on The New York Times Best Seller Audio Fiction list for two months. One year later, Audible has announced the next installment, The Sandman: Act II, with James McAvoy and an A-list supporting cast that will make your eyes bulge. Not only that: you’ll be able to listen to the first volume, The Sandman, for free. Read More »
Halloween Horror Nights, the annual scare-fest at Universal Studios Hollywood, continues to line up spooky theme park experiences for guests as it makes its long-awaited return this Samhain. Last year’s event was canceled due to the pandemic, but this year it looks to be back with a vengeance. Recently, we learned that The Haunting of Hill House would be coming to Halloween Horror Nights in a special maze based on Mike Flanagan’s acclaimed Netflix series. Now, we have confirmation that an even bigger horror icon is on the guest list.
We’ll give you a hint as to who that might be: a lovely, demon-possessed girl who can crab-walk, spin her head around 360 degrees, and projectile-vomit pea-green soup. That’s right: Regan MacNeil and The Exorcist are coming (back) to Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood.

While we’re waiting for the third season of The Mandalorian to arrive, artist Mark Englert has a new poster that all you Star Wars fans out there can frame and admire on your wall. Inspired by the second season premiere, the print features the titular bounty hunter and The Child speeding alongside Cobb Vanth, the Marshal of Mos Pelgo. The two are on their way to deal with a nasty beast who keeps wreaking havoc on a small desert town, and you just might find it lurking in a glow-in-the-dark layer on the poster. Read More »
The magic of the Disney theme parks is that there is genuinely something for everyone. If you’re a fan of the characters, they’re more than easy to spot. If you love good food, there’s options aplenty. And some people love a good show, whether it’s nighttime fireworks or daytime interactions with computer-animated turtles. Disney’s slow ease back into normalcy is finally dragging the live-entertainment side of things back into the spotlight, as they finally announced the return of some big live-entertainment favorites.

One of the biggest gambles for the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts in the 2020s is the new hotel experience at Disney’s Hollywood Studios themed to Star Wars. See, it’s one thing to have an attraction themed to the stories set in a galaxy far, far away, or even a land themed to those same stories. But Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is a multi-night hotel experience for guests who cannot help but live and breathe these stories. And Disney just released a poster full of teases and clues about what we can expect when it goes live next year.
