Disneyland Preview — Week of August 26

by on August 25, 2017

Hey all, it’s once again time to look towards the week ahead and see what’s going on at Disneyland Resort. So, without further ado, let’s jump right into this week’s Disneyland preview!

Special Events and Notes

Last week, Space Mountain went down for its Ghost Galaxy overlay, and this week, it’s the Haunted Mansion‘s turn as it prepares for Haunted Mansion Holiday. Its last day of operation this week is Sunday, August 27.

The end of this week marks the kickoff of the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend! Races start on Friday morning, but the event begins with the runner’s expo on Thursday at the Disneyland Hotel.

For those of you that are staying at Disney hotels, there’s still a little bit of time left to take advantage of the extra hour at the end of the night at Disney’s California Adventure to give you more time to ride Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout. You’ll be able to use this on Sunday, Monday, and Wednesday, but the promotion ends at that time. Also, we’ve been telling you about the Summer of Heroes at Disney’s California Adventure for quite some time now and it’s still going on, but it is nearing the end of its run. After this week, you’ll have a couple of weeks left before it goes away, so if you want to experience it, start making plans now. Check out Derek Burgan’s write-up on the event if you’ve not been before to get the most out of it.
