It’s D23 Expo time in Episode 59 of Dateline Mousetalgia, and we’re coming to you live from Disneyland Resort! First, we take a moment to look at all of the fun Marvel offerings that are available in Disney California Adventure in honor of the Marvel superheroes’ 80th anniversary! Face paint, photo props, cute meet and greets– there are a lot of options! Annual Passholders are also being treated to a special experience, as they can ride Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! during the one hour after park closing between now and August 31st. We’ll share our experience enjoying this offering, and will talk about the special lithograph gift that goes with it. Plus, there’s a new gold piranha mug available at Trader Sam’s, not to mention some noteworthy construction in both parks! In fact, we just saw the unveiling of the new digital marquee for the Sunset Showcase Theater in DCA, and it looks sharp! Of course, we simply can’t wrap up this week’s episode without sharing our initial impressions of the 2019 D23 Expo, discussing some of our favorite moments from the exciting weekend.
