Inside, Disney California Adventure is getting ready to have it's first In-Park premiere
The movie will be The Lone Ranger
Celebrities will be walking the carpet down Buena Vista Street
Media ares staged along the entrance square
Looks like the oak tree that was here has been replaced. Actually, it was done some time ago. But forgot to include it before.
I wonder if now every other Disney blog/website will include it in theirs as well. ha ha
Carthay Circle Restaurant
Another look at the new tree. Remember the oak tree was big
Over at Hollywoodland, the locomotive that was used in the film "The Lone Ranger" is displayed near Muppet Vision
Some more shots of the train from different angles to show how it looks from the Hyperion
Celebrities and invited Guests will be brought through the entrance doors, thinking they will be inside. Only to find out that they are still outside on a giant patio
And many of the invited Guests will be climbing these stairs ha ha

King Triton through the trees
Just as I took the Triton shot, I hear some beeping noises. Only to see a small caravan of E.C.V.'s parading right past me. They sure are in a hurry. Their Disney FastPass return time is probably about to expire somewhere.
Heading back into Hollywoodland because I forgot Dancin' with Disney
Another look at the Hogwartz ... I mean, Lone Ranger train
I hope this is the "actual" locomotive and not a stationary prop. Cause I wouldn't want anyone to find out that it was a stationary prop and become so enraged that they hate Disney so much that they don't want to step inside their parks again
Aw man, Dancin' with Disney isn't open yet
I feel like dancin' though. Maybe this Cast Member wouldn't mind dancin' with me. But by the looks of it, she is wanting to get to her location
Donald sure has a weird way of dancin'
The size of the locomotive compared to a Red Car Trolley
One last look at the new tree
Last week at Loz Feliz Five and Dime, new displays were created above the shopping floor. Some more deails such as signs were brought in
Another look at some of the media set up in the town square before heading out
Not your right, your left. I need your left hand.
Maybe this new sign on the exit turnstiles will help adults and kids to place their left hand down and get stamped for re-entry.
But why the left hand?
Chances are, when one leaves Disney California Adventure or Disneyland, there are two exit turnstiles. The one on the right is for getting the hand stamp for re-entry. The left one is used for those that do not need a hand stamp (AP's) and for those who are exiting without returning. So when leaving and planning on returning, you'd exit on the right turnstile which means your left hand is next to the Cast Member to stamp.
On busy days, both turnstiles may be used to issue hand stamps. But Disney wants to be consistent, and the left hand is the hand most often used. This makes it more efficient when returning as the Cast Member doesn't have to search either hand for a hand stamp. It will always be on the left
Heading into Disneyland
Got my free button. I would have gotten it over at Disney California Adventure, but three kids were putting their hands in the little basket at the end of the turnstile. So I opted to pass.
Managed to get one at Disneyland
Heading down Main Street U.S.A.
The ducks doing an aquatic dance ha ha
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad refurbishment continues
Getting on the Mark Twain
People enjoying Splash Mountain's final drop

What's wrong with this shirt? It stated Disneyland (not resort) and yet has a picture of Disney California Adventure's attraction Mickey's Fun Wheel
Who ... or what is he pointing too? ha ha
Maybe he can see his car and is pointing on it.
Oh wait, you can't do that anymore as they are now parked in the Mickey and Friends parking structure
If he gets tired, he can just go through Tink's door to the right
These Cast Members were leading a group through and at one point they had their arms out like a plane. Could they be referencing Disney's upcoming animated movie "Planes"?
I hope not
Even as I was leaving, Main Street wasn't crowded
When it's nice and bright outside, the entrance to Disney California Adventure is always beautiful to look at
The walkway leading from the Mickey and Friends parking structure along Magic Way was recently widen up to accommodate the heavy foot traffic this are would typically get
When I took a picture of this last week, they were still finishing up with the flowers.
Today got another shot of the completed area
That will conclude today's pictorial
Thanks for stopping by and checking it out
Until Next Time...
