Slight Changes Being Made Throughout The Disneyland Resort

What a glorious day to visit the Disneyland Resort.
The weather is much better than last week's overcast. I know we are coming upon the cold season, and I am not looking forward to it. So I am gonna bask in the sun as much as possible

Disneyland Resort, Main Entrance Plaza, Disneyland
Getting to the Main Entrance Plaza around 7:50 a.m., I see a high demand to get into Disneyland.

Disneyland Resort, Main Entrance Plaza, Disney California Adventure
Over at Disney California Adventure, not so much.
But don't let that fool you.
Disney California Adventure had Early Entry today so the gates to get inside the Park were already open,

Disneyland Resort, Disneyland, Main Entrance, Turnstile, Main Street U.S.A.
Over at Disneyland, the gates were still closed.
I think Disneyland opened late today because when I looked at the Main Street train station clock, it stated 8 a.m. and the gates were still closed

Disneyland Resort, Disneyland, Main Entrance, Turnstile, Main Street U.S.A.
Once the gates opened, the lines began to move
Some lines moved faster than others.
For some time, when entering either Disneyland or Disney California Adventure, you'd encounter two Cast Members. The first one was positioned outside of the gate, checking tickets and taking photos of Guests to match the ticket, and the other Cast Member at the turnstile scanning and checking hand stamps (if needed) to enter the Park(s).
Now the Cast Member at the turnstile is doing everything.

Disneyland Resort, Disneyland, Frontierland, Halloween Carnival, Halloween Time, Big Thunder Ranch
Last week, I pointed out that the Halloween Carnival canvas sign stated "Hear Haunted Hillbillies".
The probably was, there were no more hillbillies as they were all let go.
So now the sign has changed to reflect this and now states Halloween Magic in its place

Disneyland Resort, Disneyland, Frozen, Meet and Greet, Return Time, Queue
Heading into Fantasyland from the backside, we encounter the line to get a Return Time ticket for the Frozen Meet and Greet. The Cast Members were handing out 12:00 - 12:20. So if you got back here, you'd probably be getting them for like between 4 pm or 5 pm.

Disneyland Resort, Disneyland, Tomorrowland, Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage, Refurbishment, Refurbish, Refurb
Sept 27, 2014 should be the return of Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage from its refurbishment

There is one Disney fan-based site that constantly insists that there was no work being with Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage and that it sat untouched for a number of months before work got under way. Contrary to what they think, there was massive cosmetic work done to the attraction.

When it reopens, don't expect much as far as the show is concerned, as that's pretty much the same

Now ... there is talk that Luigi's Flying Tires may be getting a complete revamp when it goes down for refurbishment after the holidays

If it becomes true, there will be a new concept that doesn't involve "flying", but more like dancing

I will welcome this revamp of of Luigi's Flying Tires.
I always found the tires to be too big and bulky. And fitting three guest never really got them anywhere.
And let's not forget about getting over the tire can be such a pain.
Of course, they made them big because they wanted to increase capacity when compared to the old Flying Saucers vehicles in Tomrrowland

The Cast Member was stating that Guests with multi-day tickets (2-Day, 3-Day, etc.) do not need a handstamp with the new system
1-Day ticket holders on the other hand still need one, as I had to get one when I exited
