1923 Main Street: The Disney Travel Podcast

Narcoossee's was once a top restaurant at Walt Disney World and it will be closing for refurbishment for an upgrade. Plus, it's Easter celebration time at Disney World and Disneyland and that means decadent treats you'll want to try. These stories and more.

Show Notes

Narcoossee's to Undergo a Refurbishment this Summer
 
Narcoossee’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa will be unavailable as of June 18, 2022 as the restaurant undergoes refurbishment. Disney says they expect the location will re-open later in 2022 with an enhanced dining experience.

Disneyland Forever Fireworks Spectacular Returns to Disneyland Park April 22

Disneyland Resort is getting ready to “ignite the night” once again with the return of three nighttime spectaculars.
It's all happening on Earth Day, April 22, 2022, when World of Color at Disney California Adventure Park and Main Street Electrical Parade and Disneyland Forever at Disneyland Park will make their long-awaited returns.

“Disneyland Forever” originally debuted in 2015 for the 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration and now promises a few new surprises for its "street to sky" return.

As we mentioned in past news reports, when Disneyland Forever returns on April 22, it will run weekends only (Friday through Sunday). During the week “Mickey’s Mix Magic” will present a high-energy, projections-only show from Monday through Thursday until late spring (no specific date has been announced). At that time, “Disneyland Forever” fireworks will then run nightly in the summer.
