PHOTO REPORT: Disneyland Resort 12/6/22 (Winter Wear, A Plane Lights Up, A Magic Key Bag, and More)

Hey there, hi there, ho there! We headed down to the Disneyland Resort to check in on all the happenings at the Happiest Place on Earth and we want you to come along for the ride. So join us for this most recent photo report from both parks.


We have an absolutely beautiful day for a park visit. It was a little drizzly in the morning, but it burned off relatively quickly for a gorgeous, cold day.

It’s new pin day, and we got some awesome ones this week including a collection styled on the old Spider-Man animated series from the ’90s.

And speaking of pins, we found a pair of gift with purchase pins that are attached to gift cards which need to be activated with a minimum $100 purchase. Follow the link to see both designs.

New MagicBand+ designs are here. Whether it’s food, Bambi, Pixar pals or whatever strikes your fancy, there’s something for everyone. Even those who are too Grumpy to like anything at all.

As the holiday merchandise continues to roll out, we found a new Donald Duck shirt that delivers holiday cheer.

And finally materializing in the parks, we have the Haunted Mansion collection of the Mickey Mouse: The Main Attraction line.

We found a couple of new ear headbands at the park today, ready to help you look your holiday best.

And we also ran across this Namor headband inspired by the character in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.”

Just up Main Street, at Disney Clothiers, we found a new Dooney and Bourke collection of bags that feature the pets to which others tip their hats, The Aristocats.

For those who would rather stay home in their swamp to catch flies and play the banjo, this new Kermit the Frog Loungefly backpack is just perfect.

Let’s head into the park.

Several of the characters can be seen around the park in their winter wear on colder days. For not having any cold days on Motunui, Moana’s cold weather gear is surprisingly cute.

And Merida looks elegant as ever in her floor-length cape and hood.

Prince Ali, better known as Aladdin, hasn’t changed his outfit much for the cold. Being a big important prince requires a lavish outfit to begin with.

At Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe, the mobile order table that has been outside the far left door is now gone. Mobile orders are now being fulfilled inside at the counter, as it was before the pandemic.

Well before we get taken in for the bounty on our head, let’s park hop away.

Disney California Adventure

Beneath the Silly Symphony Swings, Magic Key holders can pick up their complimentary tote bag now through December 20.

Passes are scanned on the phone and there is a limit of one per guest, and each guest must be present to scan their pass.

In other news, the airplane in Grizzly Peak Airfield is finally out from behind construction walls and looking shiny once more.

This is a good looking plane and a relic from DCA’s first iteration. But it looks even better at night.

There are now lights inside the plane. Very bright lights, in fact.

With two powerful roof-mounted light panels, the interior of the cockpit is illuminated at night. This makes for some super fun nighttime photos.

Speaking of super fun nighttime photos, our final parting shot this time is from Grizzly River Run. We have been experimenting with slow-shutter photography on a cell phone and we are very pleased with the results. The smoothness of the water and the well-balanced highlights and shadows make for a gorgeous photo that we weren’t expecting to get from a camera phone. Technology is advancing so quickly and we love it.

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!
