Ok all! If you are missing your dole whips, and you can't make it to the parks, Yogurtland has a pretty good substitute right now! It's their special "pineapple sorbet"! Obviously it's not the real thing, but it's still really tasty!

In Huntington Beach there is a location that simple calls it "Dole Whip" and it tastes the same. - dizneedude  817.9 #204 11:05PM
thanks!  and i can top it with pineapple,  too. - MsTikiMermadam  306.2 #809 6:40PM

If you have a Lappert's Ice Cream in your area they carry them also. Of course it doesn't come with the amazing ambience. :D - OhanaPhoto  3663.1 #32 8:21AM

Starting to be unveiled! Can't wait for the 60th celebration!

Ok! I'm on it! Haha. I'm back in toon town Cuz I was racing back to gadgets go coaster with my 3 yr old. Haha. I don't get here early in the morning that often. I couldn't see anything different, but I'll go back later and check it out. :) my guess is that they put like tons of embedded crystal lights or something for it to look like shining diamonds. Maybe? Haha.  - sunshinegates  723.8 #237 11:11AM
My guess still is that they just did a nice thorough repainting job. And they will decorate later. We'll see. 😊 - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4394.3 #23 11:22AM
I would think they could do the decor overnight. Like the Christmas theming. And from the Artist renderings, it doesn't even look like as much decor as Christmas time.  - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4394.3 #23 1:36PM
No more pink!!😊 - hatgal76  442.0 #453 1:29PM

Ok, who can tell me why DCA said it closed at 6 tonight, but stayed open till 8 for those in the park?? Awesome surprise, but just wondering.

Okay so California adventure was supposed to close at six tonight. So I'm in the park at like 6 o'clock when it supposed to be closing, and it's totally still open. Apparently there was supposed to be a private party tonight but the event canceled and so if you are inside the park already, you can stay in the park till eight but they aren't letting people in the park if you're not if you were in here by 6! so it's totally empty we totally walked in and saw Anna and Elsa With no line!! I'm totally cold but I don't want to leave because there's nobody here.  - sunshinegates  723.8 #237 7:12PM

Ok just got home.. Apparently the Right side of the park closed at 6 for private party but Cars land & frozen area stayed open til 8.. & yes I also walked right into meeting Elsa & Anna I had no idea they were even there! One of the best surprises Ever!  - therealJackandSally  84.1 #0 9:03PM

Oh! And I saw Sean Austin minutes before our half marathon race! He was all by himself actually, and waiting for a rundisney employee to bring him his bib.

My family and I are thinking of going to disneyworld during the Disney world marathon weekend, and I would love to run in the "half marathon" that is on Saturday, jan 10th.

Hi!  I dont know if you've checked, but bibs might still be available through the RunDisney travel providers...last year, my husband got us Tink 10k entries 2 weeks before the run from one of the places listed.  Hope you are able to run it! A WDW race is one of my dreams!  β˜ΊοΈ - Spoonful_O_Sugar  585.6 #317 12:01PM
I have a bib for this months half if anyone wants it. I know even if I'm feeling better I will be not be up for a half at the times they want.  But I am doing the 5 k  I think so if I can I was just going to give the half spot away.  - secretagentangel  1555.5 #95 12:10PM
