No Time To Spare. Gotta Start Getting Christmas Time Set Up!


Disneyland Resort, Downtown Disney, Leaves, Decoration
Walking to the Disneyland Resort, I pass through the Downtown Disney entrance and notice that the new fall decor of leaves

Now these make a bit more sense.
Although the still seem out of place with the a few (not pictured - one more is to the left of the Ticket entry point for the Disneyland Monorai) placed on the fence

Facing Disney California Adventure

I decide to go into Disney California Adventure first so they get the "click"
Just as I was about to leave, the Main Entrance Cast Members quickly close the exit gates
They usher everyone (which wasn't a whole lot of people) out of the way.
Soon, Security comes over and monitors the area
I felt like I couldn't escape Disney California Adventure
Didn't they know I need to be inside Disneyland by the time it opens? wink wink

The door!
It's open a bit
Do I dare go inside?
No.  Too many Cast Members walking by
I dare not do it for I don't want to create a scene and get into any sort of trouble

She's back!
The Angel

Hey, wait a minute!
The poster on the left.. has it been modified to fit the Christmas theme?
The original poster is Bisciots Lefevre-Utile, by Alphonse Mucha French Nouveau art

The poster on the right was designed by Jules Cheret and advertises Geraudel cough drops in 1896 and depicts a woman in the snow taking cough lozenges . Google translates "If you take cough lozenges"

I hope this new corridor is used for crowds heading out of the Park
Can you imagine if they used it for people to COME IN?
Hordes of people coming out and into the Refreshment Corner patio and into the patrons trying to enjoy their hot dogs and beverages, that would create a nightmare
