Several Tarps Coming Down As Prices Are Going Up

Welcome to the Magic Eye Disneyland Resort Pictorial Blog.
Ticket prices may have gone up at the Resort, but it's always free to visit my blog.
No need to worry about me being all up in yo' face asking for donations to keep this blog running.
You do what you want.
So relax and enjoy as we walk around Disneyland and Disney California Adventure and see all that is happening around the Resort

Disneyland Resort, Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, Price, Hike, Increase
Came to no surprise to many that the ticket prices have increase.
I just wish they raised it after all, or majority of the refurbishments had completed.

The picture may not show it, but it got busier as the clock got closer to 9 a.m.
Just by looking at the sheer volume, it was going to be a busy day at the Parks.

Some new nature has been planted.
I don't know if these are pine trees or another type of tree, but whatever species they are, they were recently planted

Although it doesn't look like anything is going on just yet, they could be removing things we can't see, like the fans and the mechanics that flushed the air through the floor

Disneyland Resort, Disney California Adventure, Mickey, Fun, Wheel, Exit, Count, Turnstile
I mentioned this last week, but I think it came off as a bit confusing.
The infra-Red counter turnstile was moved over by the exit gates of the gondolas.

Disneyland Resort, Disney California Adventure, Mickey, Fun, Wheel, Exit, Count, Turnstile
Originally the infra-red counter was over here by where those Guests are.  I guess it never gave accurate counts where it was originally, especially since they used the exit ramp as the stationary gondola line.
Now with the infra-red turnstile close to the exit gates, it should help quite a bit
I am amazed that it took THIS long to get it moved.

What's different about this entrance?
Notice anything that's changed?

The wait time sign is gone.
And so is the Cast Member.
.
Disneyland Resort, Disney California Adventure, Little Mermaid, Ariel, Undersea, Adventure, New, Entrance
They have been moved back.
It's obvious that they are waiting for the permanent signage to be installed, as it's just one of those temporary signs at the moment.

I can't tell you how many times people would go through the exit of the rotunda, only to turn around and enter the correct way. Sometimes they would just hop the chains, which could be unsafe to do.

So by opening the rotunda up, it allowed Guests to come though any direction without any confusion on where the queue entrance is for the ride.

This should also help when it rains, when everyone is hurdled up in this area.  Before, the chains would still be up and it just created a mess for everyone. With the chains gone, the cast member no longer needs to stand outside (under the umbrella) and Guests can wander freely.

Speaking of refurbishments....

It appears that a majority of the gold color enhancements has been removed.
Although less intrusive, I'm still not liking the whole pink and blue castle.

Every time I see the pink on Sleeping Beauty Castle, I think of...

Tarps from the top half of "it's a small world" facade have been removed.
Not sure if the rain that is suppose to fall during the weekend had anything to do with it.
