Disney’s HalloweenTime starts on September 26 and runs through

Roundup, and the Tower of Terror
), on the decorations, the characters,
and special merchandise. And a list of locations at Disneyland
that will be featuring special foods and beverages. There’s also
a page with crafts (including pumpkin carving patterns) and some
interactive games. The web site is here:

There’s finally a date
for “it’s a small world” to come out of its lengthy rehab – according
to the Disneyland calendar it opens on November 29. I wonder if it will come up in the holiday configuration or not this time…

Fantasmic!, which goes into rehab on September 2, will begin running again on November 7.

The three McDonald’s restaurants in the parks, Conestoga Fries and
Harbour Galley
in Disneyland, and Burger Invasion in California Adventure,
will be closing on September 2. No information yet on what will be
replacing them, but it appears they will all reopen on September 27.

From January 6 – April 30, 2009, Disneyland is bringing back its Everyone Get in for the Kid’s Price promotion. 3, 4, and 5-day park hoppers are available to adults and kids alike for the kids’ price. More information is on the
