Disneyland Resort | 19 Updates from the parks for April 21st, 2016

The Disneyland Resort is constantly evolving and changing and we endeavour to keep our travel guide books (in both print and digital format) as up to date as possible. If you have an earlier edition of our guide book to the Disneyland Resort, here are all the changes since our last edition was published.

1) Disney's Aladdin Musical has closed. Frozen: Live at the Hyperion will be taking over starting May 27th, 2016. More info here.

2) Superhero HQ in Tomorrowland has closed. You can now meet Spider-Man and Captain America at Disney California Adventure instead, in Hollywood Land.

3) Disneyland has adopted seasonal pricing for one-day tickets so if you visit on a day that is expected to be more crowded, you will pay more. They have also increased the price of multi-day tickets by about $20 per ticket. 

4) Many attractions temporarily closed for the construction of Star Wars Land in January 2016. There is no re-opening date for these at this time. Notably, Fantasmic will also not be shown for the moment. Here is a look at what the Rivers of America will look like when the transformation is made. Disneyland Railroad is open for stationary visits.
