If you’re using The Unofficial Guide to Disneyland 2009 by Bob Sehlinger (link) to plan a trip to DLR, you might want to look at the following: The following list includes some of the things that have opened since the 2009 edition was released ("Now Open"), and includes some of the things that have closed since the 2009 edition was released ("No Longer Open"). The following list also includes some "Corrections," "Updates," "Suggestions," and "Nitpicks." NOW OPEN: Pixie Hollow (Tinker Bell and her friends) Sleeping Beauty Castle Walkthrough is now open! [page 240] Bibbidy Bobbidy Boutique replaced the "Once Upon A Time...The Disney Princess Shoppe." BBB is located near Fantasyland, but it is not “in the castle.” [page 242] NO LONGER OPEN: Golden Dreams is closed. [pages 106, 138, 145, 298, 315, 316, 317] The short film Seasons of the Vine in the Golden Vine Winery is closed. In 2009, and likely for a couple more years, this location will be used for the Walt Disney Imagineering Blue Sky Cellar DCA preview center. [pages 138, 230, 288/289, 298, 299, 312, 317] Ugly Bug Ball is closed. [pages 138, 288/289] “The Vineyard Room” restaurant is closed. [pages 160, 165, 167, 176, 192] Burger Invasion is closed. [page 173] Yamabuki (Japanese Restaurant) in Paradise Pier Hotel is closed. (April 2009) DTD: Club Libby Lu, Starabilias Gallery, Department 56, and Illuminations are closed. [pages 205, 206] “The Secret of the Stone Tiger” is closed. In the summer of '09 Aladdin's Oasis was a Meet and Greet for Jasmine and Aladdin. [pages 220, 221] La Petite Patisserie is closed. (It closed in 2004.) [page 224] Fort Wilderness is mentioned twice, but it is closed to Guests. [pages 225, 231] The Harbour Galley no longer serves McDonald’s french fries. [page 228] Parade of Dreams is closed. There is no Easter Parade at DLR. [page 261] King Triton’s Garden (Ariel) is closed, and was replaced with Pixie Hollow (Tinker Bell and her friends). [page 264] CORRECTIONS: Toy Story Mania does NOT have FastPass. (TSM has the Single Rider option.) [page 310] FastPass: The UG should mention that DL’s and DCA’s FastPass systems are not connected. For example, you can get a FP at DL; walk to DCA; and right away get another FP at DCA. The Enchanted Tiki Room is at DL. The UG incorrectly calls it Enchanted Tiki Room – Under New Mgmt!, which is at the MK at WDW. BTW, DL’s Enchanted Tiki Room is much better than MK’s version. [pages 13, 77, 91, 136, 217] Magic Morning days are Sat., Sun., Tues., and Thurs. (NOT Monday.) [pages 26, 315] UPDATES: In 2009 Grizzly River Run’s FastPass machines have been “connected” to DCA’s FastPass system. [page 315] Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln is expected to return on Dec. 17, 2009. Disneyland: The First 50 Magical Years is being refurbed (spring/summer 2009) -- it is expected to return on Dec. 17, 2009, along with The Disneyland Story, featuring Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln. (source) Autopia: The height requirement for Autopia is now 54-inches, not 52-inches. [pages 257, 311] Billy Hill & The Hillbillies Show is dark on Tues. and Wed. (as of Feb. 2009). [page 230] Remember...Dreams Come True fireworks show is apparently on hiatus. The Magical fireworks opened in early-June 2009. Sun Wheel: In May 2009 the Sun Wheel became Mickey’s Fun Wheel. [pages 139, 309, 315, 316] SUGGESTIONS: Park Hopping: The UG barely mentions Park Hopping. (See “Why I ParkHop at DLR” (link) by Hound109 ) RideMax: The UG does not mention www.ridemax.com. RideMax is one of UG’s competitors, and IMO RideMax’s touring advice is better than the UG’s. Main Street, U.S.A.: the UG does not mention some of the shops, stores, and places on Main Street. The UG does not have any photographs. FWIW, the first edition of The Disneyland Encyclopedia, by Chris Strodder, has more than 300 photos and some very good drawings. (The DL Encylopedia is a fun, excellent book, and it describes all of the shops, stores, and places on Main Street. Highly recommended. ) Haunted Mansion: The UG does not mention the Haunted Mansion Holiday version (late-Sept. to early-Jan). (The UG does not mention Halloween-Time (late Sept. to Halloween).) [page 222] “Pooh Corner” (the candy store) should be mentioned in the Critter Country section. [page 228] Snacks: The UG should have a separate section about snacks, including (pineapple) Dole Whips at the Tiki Juice Bar, etc. In Fantasyland, the UG recommends going to Dumbo first, but everyone knows, "Peter Pan first...always first." [pages 234, 239, 276] It’s A Small World Holiday: The UG does not mention the holiday version of IASW (early-Nov. to early-Jan.). (The UG hardly mentions the Christmas Holiday season.) [page ~237] Finding Nemo: The UG should mention the Mobile Observation Outpost (MOO), which is the alternate way to view the attraction. [page 253] Soarin’: The UG should mention that Soarin’ is usually open at 9:30am. The DCA gates open at 9:30am and Guests can ride Soarin’ – and also get a FastPass for Soarin’. [page 292, 315] Animation Building: The UG should mention that the Animation Building has the Toy Story Zoetrope. [page 293] The UG should mention that Soarin’ has the Single Rider option. [page 295] The UG should mention that California Screamin’ has the Single Rider option. [page 305] The UG should include a list of the Single Rider attractions: SINGLE RIDER ATTRACTIONS DISNEYLAND Indiana Jones Adventure Splash Mountain DISNEY’S CALIFORNIA ADVENTURE California Screamin’ Grizzly River Run Maliboomer Mulholland Madness Soarin’ Over California Toy Story Midway Mania! NITPICKS In the Lodging Section of the book, the UG does not include the Park Vue or the Ramada Maingate. Park Vue (1570 S. Harbor Blvd): www.parkvue.com Ramada Maingate (1650 S. Harbor Blvd) www.ramadamaingate.com [page 38/39, 67] Winnie the Pooh: The UG says that WtP gets “very busy,” but it’s in the corner of the park and it rarely gets “very busy.” [page 228] Honey, I Shrunk the Audience is NOT a “headliner.” HISTA is a “see anytime” attraction. [page 253, 254] Screamin’: The “Mickey Head” on Screamin’ was removed to add Mickey for Mickey’s Fun Wheel). [page 305] Soarin’: In Soarin’ the floor does not “drop away.” Instead, the Guests are raised approximately 40 feet in the air. [page 299] The Twilight Zone ToT is the tallest structure in DLR -- not the Maliboomer. [page 307] Walk in Walt’s Footsteps Tour: Lunch is no longer served on the patio. [page 71] Character dining: Mickey only attends the Plaza Inn birthday party, but not any of the other Character Meals at DLR. [page 158] Indiana Jones is not the only Single Rider attraction in DL; Splash Mountain also has the Single Rider option. [page 219] Star Tours does not have an age requirement. [page 256] Rancho del Zocalo does not serve BBQ ribs, and the River Belle Terrace does not serve pasta. [page 233] Autopia is in DL (not DCA) [page 145] The UG says that the Carnation Café serves the best cup of coffee. [pages 179, 180] But the Carnation Cafe serves Nescafe. That’s doubtful. Hope this helps.
