Niles: What would Walt Disney think of bars at Disneyland?

Was anyone surprised when Disneyland announced that it would expand alcohol sales in the park? Disneyland famously was a dry park for its first 64 years, until Oga’s Cantina in Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge started serving beer and cocktails when it opened in May 2019. Once that precedent had been set, many fans wondered how long Disney would take to start serving adult beverages elsewhere in the park. Not long, it appears. The Blue Bayou in New Orleans Square will put beer, wine and a Hurricane cockt...

Runner nears finish of Disneyland to Disney World run — undeterred by pandemic pause

Don Muchow was determined nothing would stop his 2,761-mile cross-country run from Disneyland to Walt Disney World — not the blisters on his feet, his Type 1 diabetes or the once-in-a-century COVID-19 pandemic. Muchow will complete his Mouse-to-Mouse run on Monday, April 5 at the Magic Kingdom in Florida — barring any other cataclysmic world-changing events. “I never considered quitting even once,” said Muchow, 59, of Plano, Texas. “COVID didn’t change my mission: I want every single person with...

Niles: What’s missing from Disneyland’s new plan?

Disneyland’s latest ask of the City of Anaheim seems pretty straightforward. But recent history shows that not everything in the relationship between the city and its most famous landmark comes easily. Disneyland is asking for additional land use flexibility on its property, in a proposal the resort calls DisneylandForward. (So much for physical distancing when it comes to words in press releases, I guess.) Yet that flexibility for Disneyland might leave some of its neighbors feeling bent out of...

Disney’s Jungle Cruise Ride Revamps With Woman of Color as Central Character, More Diverse Ensemble

Disney Parks’ Jungle Cruise attraction is getting a major revamp. The classic Disney theme park attraction has long trafficked in somewhat backwards stereotypes about tropical locales — including the “Trader Sam” character, a “dark-skinned man outfitted in straw tribal wear” — but Jungle Cruise is making significant steps to add more diverse characters. The first of which is the centering of the entire ride around a woman of color, Alberta Falls. A familiar character to many Jungle Cruise fans,...
