Progress Continues with Fantasy Faire and Other Happenings at the Disneyland Resort

I will be going out of town once again on Friday, so I was able to finish work early and head over to the Disneyland Resort for this weeks pictorial

Just a little after 1:00 pm, getting to Disney California Adventure

So I take it the bridge will be back to its beige color with some white accents

Since not much was happening at Disney California Adventure, I went over to Disneyland so I can get some shots of Fantasy Faire and Big Thunder construction while there was still some good day light left

This is what I faced while waiting to get inside Disneyland. Thank goodness the line I got into was moving faster than the ones on either side of me

Big Thunder crane as seen from Main Street U.S.A.

Fantasy Faire construction

Popcorn lights adorn the tent structure

Cool looking lights

The inner workings of where the animated Figaro and Bird Cage will be

I don't know what kind of flowers these are, but they remind me of poppies

Clopin's Music Box has been placed on site

The note taped to the glass, from most of what I can make out states "Clopin de-energized till plastor work complete"

Looking towards the square of Fantasy Faire

Lamp on the bridge leading you into Fantasy Faire

Another look at the popcorn lights...

...and lamps

Yup! That's a dog being pushed in a Disneyland rented stroller

Now jumping into Frontierland

Looking over at Big Thunder Mountain Railroad refurbishment

A section of track.  I like the color

A sandbag

Now jumping back to Fantasy Faire.  The reason for the jumps is because both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure were really busy.  With the heavy crowds, most times people would be in spots that I would need to be in, so instead of wasting time waiting for them to move,  I would go check out other areas of the Park, then check back at another time with the hopes that no one is where I need to be.

Now walking towards Village Haus to see the back area of Thunder Mountain

Small World light towers getting a refurb as well

With the line this long for the Disneyland Railroad at Mickey's ToonTown, I think it would be faster to just walk to ones destination. ... if they are using this as transportation

Fantasy Faire once again

Now it's back to Disney California Adventure

Catching a little bit of Five & Dime

Why Goofy, my that certainly is an impressive ...ummm... suite you have on there"

Grizzly River Run still under refurbishment

I finally caught a picture of one!

Paradise Pier female Cast Members seem to have an option to wear pants.  Right now, I don't know if it is in a testing phase or if the female cast members now have the option.

I still saw quite a number of other female Paradise Pier Cast Members still wearing the culottes

A crowd has gathered to watch "Instant Concert: Just Add Water"

With Disney's Oz: The Great and Powerful movie hitting theaters, Award Wieners is celebrating with special items

Oz The Great and Powerful preview in the Muppets 3D theater. Light crowd

That will conclude today's pictorial
Thanks for stopping by and checking it out

Until Next Time...
