Disneyland Resort Update – August 28th, 2019

Preston: It’s the tail-end of summertime here in Southern California, which means plenty of Disneyland trips to pack in! This week, we’re back with another update for you guys. Today’s feature will have an in-depth look at the new Pixar Pals Parking Structure and ongoing construction that is taking place with the Magic Way Pedestrian Bridge. We also are going to see the beginnings of the new hub area that will connect the Pixar Pals and Mickey and Friends Parking Structure, and we are going to check out some Avengers Campus (OFFICIAL NAME!!!) construction. We got a chance to check out a fun after-hours AP opportunity too. Let’s go!


– In the past, many of our images have been posted, featured, and shared on forums, social media platforms and websites around the web. We work hard to provide the coverage that we do, and we encourage our audience to share our content and use our images, BUT ONLY IF proper credit is given to thecoasterkings.com. Thank you! –


Let’s start at the new Pixar Pals Parking Structure! The structure can fit up to 5,000 cars and is adjacent to the now eighteen-year-old Mickey and Friends Parking Structure.

Looking into the structure, we can see that it is equipped with ParkAssist, similar to what Mickey and Friends has. However, for some reason, the feature is not yet turned on.

The brand new elevators are so cute! I know it’s a weird thing to get excited about, but I love the Pixar ball emblem that they used as flooring.

They also added stickers on the elevator buttons for each floor! 

The floor themes are Incredibles, Coco, Cars, Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo, and Inside Out.

They are creating a new hub for the two parking structures. When completed, it will feature plenty of seating along with much-needed shading. Some room will also be provided for when the security queues get longer than anticipated.

The pedestrian bridge is moving at light speed as well. Disney has stated that they plan to open the bridge and walkway by the end of September, and I see no reason why they won’t be able to meet their goal.

Security has been moved to underneath the new structure, and it looks absolutely fantastic. It feels like forever since we’ve had a permanent security area in this part of the resort.

Once past the checkpoint, the tram loading area is very Disney. Fun lighting and vinyl stickers of characters at every turn.

Now, to the parks! At the front of California Adventure, one of the trolley loading points is undergoing work. Marvel Land is progressing fast, but unfortunately, there are very few vantage points to see the construction.

The entrance to Sunset Showcase Theater has been moved from inside the backlot corner of Hollywood Land to the main drag. It is now adjacent to Award Weiners, and WOW, what a fantastic improvement. The old sign and entrance always looked very temporary, while this new sign looks permanent and much more classy.

Something that made me laugh: I remember the day these Mickey Mouse sippers came out, I RAN to the park to grab one. Now, five months later, they are still very much available! xD

Let’s end off this quick update with something fun: from August 25th to the 31st, Annual Passholders are able to enjoy Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission BREAKOUT an extra hour after park close.  Also, because of Avengers Campus construction, they have moved the entrance to the ride just slightly.

What a fun way to enjoy such a fantastic attraction. The waits are very minimal during the additional hour.


Thank y’all so much for checking out this Disneyland Resort update! I appreciate every single one of you! Make sure to check out our recent Magic Mountain update, and be on the lookout for more updates in the future. Catch ya later!
