First things first, Father’s Day is this Sunday. Disneyland hasn’t announced anything special for the day, but it’s not uncommon for there to be special treats and merchandise available for minor holidays like these, so keep your eyes open if you’re there on Sunday. Also, be aware that’s we’re predicting heavy (level 9) crowds on Father’s Day.

You’ve likely seen that Disney-Pixar is releasing Toy Story 4 this Friday, and Disneyland is of course jumping in to help promote the movie. Bo Peep is out meeting guests and Pixar Pier, and there are several special Toy Story-themed treats on their way to the Golden Horseshoe. Check out Rikki’s story for more details.

The 25th Anniversary of The Lion King continues this week at Disney’s California Adventure. You’ll see storytellers; African song, dance, artwork and crafts; and more at the Palisades Stage. Check here and in-park times guides for more details.

As a reminder, the original Soarin’ Over California is back for a limited time! Get yourself over to California Adventure to breathe in some orange-scented air for old times’ sake between now and June 30.

Finally, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge remains a major draw as we near the end of the reservation period. It’s worth a reminder that between now and June 23, the only people that will be allowed to enter Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge are those that have reservations. At this point, all reservations to the general public are booked;  if you want one, you’ll have to have a reservation at one of the three Disneyland Resort hotels, which automatically entitles you to one reservation per person during your stay. Starting on June 24, however, you will no longer need a reservation, and Disneyland will instead utilize a virtual queue system.

We’re continuing to report on all matters Star Wars as we learn more about the new land. You can stay abreast of ALL of our Galaxy’s Edge coverage by bookmarking this link.
