It looks like "June Gloom" has passed and it is starting to warm up nicely here in Anaheim. With this nice weather, it makes for a great day at the Disneyland Resort.
First stop, Disney's California Adventure.
It didn’t take long to get inside the Park. And it does not look like it is busy. Come to find out while walking through the Park, that it wasn't busy at all. Lines were really short with the exception of Grizzly River Run.
What is wrong with this picture?
Thurs, Fri and Sun - 10am-9pm
Sun - 10am-10pm.
There are two Sundays with different closing times. Saturday is the day the Park stays open until 10pm. Disney better print up some leaflets, one for Saturday explaining the Park will be open till 1opm and one for Sunday explaining the misprint and state the real closing time.
Some construction of the bay
Some definition on the shafts.
How much to stand in front of this blower?
Is this some sort of quarantine tent?
Finally some Cast Member got smart and placed the benches back in the shaded area. It was kind of stupid to have them in the front of the Carousel directly in the sun. At least now they are put to good use for the paying Guests.
Jack has hit the road
And it doesn't look like he's coming back
With Jack gone, it really opens up the view of Mulholland Madness...
...and the side view of the new rooms at the Grand
I guess since the theme of the holiday is Red, While and Blue, this is the reason for Mickey's color being more purplish
Thinking of Mickey makes me think of Disneyland. So now it's time to head over there.
The bathrooms back behind the Bank of Main Street have reopened. Because I didn't need to go, I didn't bother to venture inside.
Like Obama and sharing the wealth, this bank will soon be sharing the wealth... ..the wealth of art
The red and white flowers remind me of little parasols
But up close, they look like peppermint candy
The "ball park" has opened for Guests to sit and relax
I don't think this blocks the view of Space Mountain. HISTA already does that
The working peasant (not pictured) had to stand outside the entrance to the Snow White ride because the Queen had not given orders that the attraction could reopen
Some cock-horse merchandise stands for the coach
Do you see this Cast Member? O.k., so I am pretty sure he was texting on a phone before he was approached by some kids to pin trade
This is the phone in question. It is not a Disney communication device by any means. And he had it out on the vending cart in plain view.
Quentin, you FAIL!
I bought some ice cream and walked through Adventureland. Once I got to Tarzan's entrance, I notice that everyone was going down the ramp but not up and around towards the bridge. So that is where I decided to go. As I walked up the ramp, I see some shade and stop for a moment to enjoy my ice cream.
Looking across towards the island, I see barricades where the dragon pit is
Being curious, I take a trip aboard the "floating wedding cake" to see if I can get a better view.
some shots as the Mark Twain rounds the river bend
Guests were not allowed to walk around the front portion of the island
After the excitement of seeing a barricaded hole, there wasn't much else to look at. I look up and see the Disneyland flag whipping in the wind
My friend pointed out to me that the flag is no longer stitched along the letters, stars, and castle and that it appears to just be silk screened
So much for the Disney detail
Well that concludes this walk around the Disneyland Resort. Hope you enjoyed it and hope to see you here again
Until Next Time...
