As an annual passholder, I received an invitation for a preview for Ratatouille. The ride is a combination of actual motion and simulation. There are times when you are not really sure if you are physically moving, it is the simulator, or even both. You do wear 3D glasses during the entire ride.

As a person who gets motion sick from simulator rides and going backwards, I often had to close my eyes to avoid feeling nauseous. The ride felt much shorter than Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway which I was surprised about.

It is a fun ride. This ride opens to the public on October 1st.



Disney Merriest Nites: Disneyland has a new After Hours event. Are you looking forward to immersing yourself in the Holiday season this year? Look no further because magic is here with Holidays at the Disneyland Resort! And this year we’ve added a new separate ticket, limited-capacity offering, Disney Merriest Nites. Since Mickey Mouse adores the holidays and celebrating with friends, he’s invited some of them to help host six themed parties in one throughout Disneyland park. Join Mickey Mouse and his friends on one of five select nights during November and December with the purchase of a ticket!

As the host of the party, Mickey Mouse will welcome Guests to Disney Merriest Nites with Victorian flair on Main Street, U.S.A. Over in New Orleans Square, Princess Tiana plans to ring in Noel with Guests at her bayou-inspired celebration. In Frontierland, Miguel from the Disney•Pixar film “Coco” will be wishing everyone Feliz Navidad while Guests kick up their heels during a jolly dance-filled fiesta. Three more character-hosted holiday parties await with a tropical party hosted by Lilo & Stitch in Adventureland, a wintertime celebration with Elsa in Fantasyland, and Buzz Lightyear taking the holidays to new heights over in Tomorrowland. Guests will enjoy enhanced entertainment such as themed photo backdrops and character sightings, and themed specialty food and beverage offerings within the event.

Attendance at this separately ticketed holiday event offers Guests limited-capacity, after-hours access to Disneyland park attractions* and entertainment. Select attractions will be available, including the seasonal transformations “it’s a small world” Holiday and Haunted Mansion Holiday, along with a special viewing of “A Christmas Fantasy” Parade.**

With unlimited Disney Photopass*** digital downloads from the night, Guests may want to wear their favorite holiday attire!

Disney Merriest Nites tickets will be sold for events on Nov. 11, Nov. 16, Nov. 30, Dec. 7, and Dec. 9. For event highlights and additional details, please visit disneyland.com/merriestnites.
