This morning was very cloudy but I decided to walk to the Parks instead.
First stop, Disney California Adventure
Looking at the construction of the new entrance to Disney California Adventure
A small sign letting Guests know that California Adventure opens at 9am
Once inside, checking out Carthay, minus a crane
At the Hollywood Pictures Backlot, walls have been place out in front to get started on the Red Car tracks in that area
Heading to Paradise Pier
Sitting on some rocks in the bay
The new smoking section has moved once again in Paradise Pier. It was placed here were the billboards were temporarily.
And since it moved, signs are now in place to remind Guests that the smoking section is no longer here. I think the Disney California Adventure guide maps still show this section as being the smoking section. Even the benches around this area have been removed
Over at the Little Mermaid building, the station lights are on. I wonder if this will now be an everyday thing now.
Light poles have been placed in front of the Little Mermaid building
Repainting work being done on the Seaside Souvenir lighthouse
Looking at the water tower for Goofy's Sky School
The backside of the beer station next to Silly Symphony Swings
Looks like some new possibly topiary style trees that look like seaweed
With a 9am opening, hardly anyone was in the Park. And if they were, most of them were over at Toy Story Midway Mania.
An arch way on the other end of the new restaurants
Now on to Mickey's Fun Wheel -
Looking out towards Goofy's Sky School
The once boxy looking walls have now taken some wavy shapes
Overlooking the area
Construction continues on Cars Land
Luigi's Flying Tires attraction is getting more detail
Looking out to Mater's Junkyard Jamboree
All of the tail fins now have concrete
Some columns have been placed in front of the arch. At the moment, I don't know what they are for. Looking back at some of the Cars Land models, I couldn't find anything that resembles those columns.
Looking at the queue work for Little Mermaid
Some brackets have been placed. Looks exactly like those in the new Paradise Park with the vines
Another look at Seaside Souvenirs
Looking again at the Little Mermaid queue with its blue railings which look really nice
The hanging lamps on the outside have the seaweed look to them
Heading out of Hollywood Pictures Backlot
Heading out to the other park
The graphics on the tarps have returned
More blue has been painted on both sides of the Star Tours marquee
Speaking of marquees, with Buzz Lightyear no longer having Fast Pass, the marquee has been modified to reflect that. It looks like the wait time sign (which was on the left) has been moved to the middle and the sides have been covered up with Star Command logo panels
It's a little after 10:30am and this is how Space Mountain looked!
Over at Autopia, some new signs have been placed at the entrance to indicate which side to walk along as both parties make their way up the main ramp
Looking over at Star Tours
Looks like some of the same people from last week who were up at the People Mover station are now by the Tomorrowland Terrace stage.
Riding the Monorail to catch a glimpse of the Carthay Theatre
The Tomorrowland side queue for the Matterhorn was rerouted a bit for some reason
Looking at the construction of the small building shack next to the Mark Twain landing dock
It's Bre'r Fox
It's always nice to see the horses roam the Indian site
Because the Columbia was backing up, the canoes were placed in a holding pattern
Splash Mountain without the scaffolding
A quarter-press coffin by the entrance to Court de Angels. I wonder if the "Funeral March" tune plays as the quarter is getting pressed
The three images are 1) Hitchhiking Ghosts 2) Haunted Mansion 3) Cemetery Caretaker
Set up for the handicapped Guests who want to experience Pirates of the Caribbean. This set up reminds me of Space Mountain's handicapped queue
Heading out and looking at the entrance to Disney California Adventure
That will conclude for today.
Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate it
Until next time...
