PHOTO REPORT: Disney California Adventure 8/10/22 (Tons of Merch, an Empty Park, a $600 Plush, and More)

Hey there, hi there, ho there! We headed down to Disney California Adventure to check in on the happenings around the park and we found plenty to show you. So let’s take a spin around the park!

Disney California Adventure

Another piece of the Peter Pan’s Flight series of Mickey Mouse: The Main Attraction has arrived. We found the Loungefly bag last week, and now the matching ears have landed as well.

Following on the heels of the larger Hocus Pocus merchandise collection, this new witch’s cauldron mug is just what we need to brew up some trouble.

And we also found a pair of new princess-themed stationery sets featuring Princess Tiana and an amalgam of princesses.

Nearby, we also found this new Rapunzel doll from the Designer collection.

In Big Top Toys, the “Turning Red” merchandise is still coming. We found a new fuzzy hat, above, and this super cool two-sided ornament below.

This ornament features Meilin in both her human state and her red panda state.

We also found some new open edition pins from Pirates of the Caribbean.

Character Sweatshirts

These character sweaters are a timeless style, in one of four characters to choose from.

Adding to the French Lavender Minnie Mouse collection, we found a new dress, a mug and more.

These shiny ears and Loungefly bag are the perfect compliment to the EARidescent shimmer collection.

And as we gear up for the spooky season, this Mickey necklace from Betsey Johnson is a nice accessory to any ghoulish garb.

We found a new collection of Dooney & Bourke bags featuring Figaro and Cleo from “Pinocchio” at Elias and Co…

… and right next to it were these $600 leather plush dolls from Coach.

Stopping by the refurbishment of Hollywood Lounge, we can see that not much has changed since our last check-in.

The refurbishment of the airplane at Grizzly Peak Airfield is still underway as well.

And Redwood Creek Challenge Trail is closed as well, with the removal of the Raya meet and greet location underway.

The park is surprisingly empty today. At nearly 10 a.m., there was still no posted wait time for Radiator Springs Racers. But when we pulled up the camera to snap a shot of this, of course that is when the sign clicks over to 10 minutes.

Still, 10 minutes is not a bad wait for two hours after opening. It’s rare to see this pathway so empty, at any time of day.

While we were taking photos of the emptiness, we saw some scaffolding has been set up along the top of the ridge.

It’s a hot day so we stopped in for a cool treat to try something new.

These edible straws are available to accompany your Memory Refresher drink, so we tried all three.

We have a full review for you of the Memory Refresher and the straws. You can also watch our video review of them on our YouTube channel, or by clicking on the video below:

In the Super Store featuring Avengers Campus, we found a couple of new items. This Avengers mug looks like it was taken straight off of Nick Fury’s desk.

And this Spider-Man ornament celebrates his 60th anniversary with his many costumes showcased in between the strands of his webs.

As we made our exit, we happened across the old webhead who was out greeting guests and swinging from the buildings.

Our final parting shot of the day comes from Avengers Campus, where Spidey makes his super hero landing after a successful altitude test in his new suit.

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!
