In other Disneyland news, it appears that Space Mountain will return to its Star Wars-themed Hyperspace Mountain overlay once the Halloween-themed Ghost Galaxy overlay concludes at the end of October. Hyperspace Mountain returns Nov. 3.
The Disneyland Resort also has released some addition details about its new, holiday-themed version of World of Color: Season of Light.
The show begins with the last leaves of fall giving way to the arrival of winter, as Mickey and his pals decorate their homes for Christmas. Themes of love, home and family run throughout "World of Color – Season of Light," with special appearances by Lady and Tramp, Andy's family from "Toy Story," a "Mele Kalikimaka" with Stitch and his 'Ohana and a "Feliz Navidad" from the Three Caballeros. At one point in the show, Goofy goes all out in a spectacular ode to over-the-top holiday light displays ... until his ode turns to overload and everything short circuits, leading to a "Blue Christmas" with Sadness from Disney-Pixar's "Inside Out."
You might notice the lack of references to Frozen, Star Wars, or Pirates of the Caribbean — Disney's recent mega-franchises that have made their way into just about every major show the Disney Parks have put over the past couple of years. We'll have to wait until World of Color – Season of Light debuts on Nov. 10 to see if they actually made the show.
Across the country, in Orlando, Walt Disney World confirmed today what we'd told you earlier this week — that "The Muppets Present Great Moments in American History" will debut in Liberty Square on Oct. 2. (That's the same day that Stitch's Great Escape closes for the season — a trade we are more than willing to make.) This new Muppets show plays outside The Hall of Presidents and features Sam Eagle and a town crier trying to maintain some sense of order and dignity as the rest of the Muppets try to get through some stories from America's history.
Finally, Universal Orlando yesterday officially declared open its new Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen. TPI reader Bob Liebe was their for the event and filed a report with his impressions of the new steampunk-inspired restaurant. Online, Universal promoted the opening with what might be the most Universal hype video yet:
