Blue Sky Cellar - The Little Mermaid and More

Today I went to Disney California Adventure to check out the updated Blue Sky Cellar which focused a lot on The Little Mermaid attraction which is set to open up in the coming months.

On the front patio, there is a map of Radiator Springs

One can match up to the construction site that is a yards away to the map and see how it will all be laid out

- Inside Blue Sky Cellar -

New posters for three of Paradise Pier's attractions

These posters remind me of a travel brochure ad

How the posters are drawn out and edited

Some concept art of Buena Vista Street

The Carolwood Toy & Hobby store is a tribute to the Carolwood Pacific Railroad, which was a live steam railroad in Walt Disney's Holmby Hills home

The FastPass machine design for Goofy's Sky School

The queue for Goofy's Sky School

The focus was a lot on the Little Mermaid attraction

These early track layout designs look awesome

In a shadow box, there was a display of Ursula and how one would see the scene from the attraction

Taking a look one last time before heading out

As one goes into the cellar, there are small screens in the wall displaying a rotation of different pictures.  Because the sun light is easily reflected off of them during certain times of the day, I had to angle myself as much as I could to reduce the amount of glare.

There's a little matter I forgot to mention.
Beware of hitchhiking Imagineers!

They have selected you

This looks like when your vehicle travels backwards down under the sea

I hope you enjoyed these pictures
Thanks for stopping by

Until next time
