One thing I noticed at Luigi's, behind the green shurbry (pictured on the right), a building has appeared.
Maybe this is the maintenance building for the new cars that will move around the field

With the 60th anniversary kick off fast approaching, it's only appropriate to change out the decade old window displays at the Emporium on Main Street

I wonder if each of these ribbons describe the overall window display scene

There are some people out there that think a Disneyland 60th exhibit will take place in Innoventions.
I am not one of them.
If I am wrong, then I will admit my mistake.

Riding the Disneyland Monorail to see how the transformation from Condor Flats to Grizzly Peak Airfield is shaping up

Disneyland Resort, Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, Monorail, Condor, Flats, Grizzly, Peak, Airfield, Humphrey's, Fly, Buy, Refurbishment, Refurbish, Refurb
The old Fly 'n' Buy has been renamed to Humphrey's

That's probably a nod to Humphrey the Bear, who starred in 7 cartoon shorts, 2 of which were created just for his own series, before Disney did away with the theatrical cartoon shorts.

John Muir, who was an activist on preserving wildlife
He helped preserve Yosemite Valley, the Sequoia National Park, and other wilderness areas

A little bit of trivia, John Muir was also mentioned in the extinct Disney California Adventure attraction "Golden Dreams"
