MiceChat Disney News Roundup

Relaunching the Disneyland Resort Project Tracker
Greetings, Dateline Disneylanders! Dateline Disneyland is taking a vacation break this week, so in lieu of a regular park update, we’re bringing you a classic MiceChat feature. Back during the height of Disney California Adventure’s re-imagining and expansion, I started a popular series of threads on the MiceChat forums that tracked the latest goings-on and construction in both parks. Those threads eventually became a single thread—the Disneyland Resort Project Tracker—that tracked the latest news and projects underway in both theme parks, Downtown Disney, and at the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort. It’s been a long two years since I last updated the Disneyland Resort Project Tracker on the MiceChat Forums but as Disneyland gears up to begin work on a major new Star Wars expansion and other projects, it seemed the perfect time to relaunch the Project Tracker. The Disneyland Resort Project Tracker will live permanently on the MiceChat forums, with this blog post acting as a jumping off point for the Project Tracker’s big relaunch. Be sure to bookmark the forum post and check back from time-to-time for the latest news, updates, and discussion!

The Ghost Host invites you in this short series of boiling biographies of some of the greatest felons the world has ever known! This Week’s Monster: Mummies! This seems rather innocent; just another webshow on MiceChat.com. But there’s a twist: this webshow is HAUNTED! Based on the classic Disney Parks attraction, join your Ghost Host and 998 other Happy Haunts as they give you the fright of your afterlife… or not.

MiceChat Podcast: You never know what Doug and Dusty are going to say, or who they’ll run into. Just imagine the hijinks when they storm Anaheim to find out what’s new and what’s next. They are taking no prisoners and holding back no opinion on Avatar Land, Shanghai Disneyland, Star Wars Land and Marvel. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you might even listen all the way to the end.
