Magic Key Giveaways, New Apparel, EPCOT Merchandise & More: Disneyland Resort Photo Report 2/16/22

Hey there, hi there, ho there! We headed down to the Disneyland Resort to see everything that is going on while the weather remains warm and pleasant, and we want you to come along. Join us as we hit both parks in a grand circle tour.

Disney California Adventure

We began our day in DCA, and with the warm, sunny temperatures in Southern California right now, we could use some sunglasses. Luckily, Disneyland Resort has Magic Key Holders covered with these complimentary sunglasses for Magic Key Holder Celebration Month. At first, they were giving out white glasses with red logos, as seen above. Then when the stock ran low, they began giving out red glasses with white logos, as seen below.

In addition to the sunglasses, we also received the second of two poster prints being handed out for the appreciation month. You can read all about the limited-time giveaways right here.

Over in Hollywood Pictures Backlot, some refurbishments are going on. The Disney Theater and Gone Hollywood are both covered with construction walls protecting the front of the buildings.

Both the theater and shop are still open while their façades are being worked on.

Further down the block, the La Brea Carpets building is now uncovered after being behind construction walls, likely for the same treatment as the two buildings up the street.

In the Marvel area of Hollywood Pictures Backlot, the Backlot Premiere Shop is closed until February 18 for routine maintenance. But we noticed that the nearby Loki photo op, and all of the Disney+ Marvel show photo ops, have been removed.

Studio Store has a limited selection of Marvel merchandise, including this new Hawkeye bow and some apparel celebrating the show on Disney+. You can read all about them right here.

In Elias & Co. on Buena Vista Street, we found tons of new merchandise. This Big Hero 6 apparel line is just what the doctor ordered. Or rather, just what the health care companion bot ordered. Take a closer look at all of the pieces right here.

We also found some new Play in the Park merchandise and apparel, perfect to showcase your Disneyland Resort spirit. Take a look at everything we found right here.

For those looking for a calmer approach to their Disney vacation (or life), then this collection is for you. Take a look at everything we found, featuring Mickey, Minnie, and Winnie the Pooh, right here.

And to celebrate the year that you visited Disneyland, take a look at the newest releases from the 2022 collection. You can see it all right here.

We also found some cool keychains celebrating park icons, characters, and more. See them all right here.

This Mickey Mouse raglan t-shirt features the main Mouse prominently in a sketchbook design. Read all about it right here.

Celebrate the hardest-working princess of all with this new Princess Tiana dress we found in Elias & Co. Get a closer look right here.

Speaking of Tiana, she is the newest addition to the Disney Designer doll collection. We spotted her at Big Top Toys, and you can read all the details right here.

Around the edge of Paradise Bay, we stopped to check on Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta, where the windows have been uncovered for the first time since the pandemic closures.

Cast Members were inside cleaning and stocking, hopefully preparing for an imminent reopening.

The World of Color fountains were submerged last week, but now they’ve been brought up again as work continues.

Four projector bays have been installed, and workers can be seen at each one, readying them to begin the show again soon.

On such a warm day, we needed to cool off, so we headed over to Schmoozies!

The Hot Chocolate Float is a scoop of vanilla ice cream floating on a cup of hot chocolate. You can read our full review right here.


Despite the COVID-19 numbers dropping and masks not being required outside any longer, the 1 p.m. park hopping limitation is still in place — much to the chagrin of nearly every park guest in this line.

The China Closet is now under scrim as its upper-level exterior is under refurbishment. The shop entrance is open while work is being done.

After the first two pieces of the Disney Steeds collection debuted the other day, we’ve been keeping an eye out for the third piece. It finally arrived today.

These four new phone cases are part of the releases for Magic Key Holder Celebration Month, and they are now available as pictured at Star Trader in Tomorrowland, or able to be personalized through MaDe kiosks in both parks. You can read all about it right here.

After walking around two parks all day, we needed a pick-me-up, and this new souvenir travel mug is the perfect way to take it on the go. See some more pictures and read all about it right here.

After seeing some themed scrim go up around the Royal Theatre at Fantasy Faire last week, we were surprised to see it removed to show the bare bones of the theatre’s roof today.

Up in Toontown, construction is flying along. The rolling hills of the new Toontown skyline are taking shape as they move across the top of the massive building that will house Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway.

The spire of the entrance to the El CapiTOON Theater will welcome guests to the attraction.

In Mickey’s neighborhood, the raised hills are complete across this stretch of the building, and the frontispiece is being covered in the white primer as well.

We’re getting close to the last day for guests to visit Toontown on March 8 before the land is closed to reimagine the area.

The rolling hills are also beginning to stretch out from the right side of the building.

Downtown Disney

At The Dress Shop, we ran across a large assortment of apparel designed for EPCOT. These limoncello ears from the Italy pavilion are super cute, and you can read all about them right here.

There is also a collection of Limoncello apparel from the Italy Pavilion at EPCOT, perfect for pairing with the ears.

Alongside the Italy pavilion apparel is a collection of United Kingdom pavilion apparel. You can see it all right here.

And finally, we came across some stylish new Disney Princess matching loungewear sets. You can see all three sets (and their prices) right here.

Well, that’s it from us here at Disneyland. We’re glad you rode along. Be sure to leave a comment below, letting us know what you think of the photo report. We’ll see ya real soon!
