A Little "O.C." (Overcast and Cloudy) at the Disneyland Resort

I'm late!
I'm late!
For my important date at the Disneyland Resort.

I had my alarm set at 7:30 a.m. as well as 7:45 a.m. so I can get ready and start walking to the Disneyland Resort around 8:20.  But I slept right though them and didn't get up until 9:15!

As I am about to pick out which shirt I want to wear, I look outside and see that it's a little "OC". ... Overcast and Cloudy.  Ughh!

I finally get ready and pretty much speed walk to the Disneyland Resort. I walk though Downtown Disney and come to the World of Disney store

New window displays have been added. These were taken a few night ago.

These dark blue rockets (that are on a rotating disc) are getting launched

I am not sure if these light blue rockets, which are slow moving, are suppose to be representing the PeopleMover or if they are just moving slow to act as though they are getting ready for launch

Between then and now, I saw this window.  It took me a few moments to figure out what I was looking at.  Then it hit me...
An elevator shaft from the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror

Because I was pretty much an hour late, I just started over at Disneyland because I wanted to still get inside while the crowds were still relatively calm

I'm gonna miss this more than Billy Hill and the Hillbillies since I have more of a connection with this ride than with the Hillbillies

I wonder if the stairs will be removed as well or if they are gonna stay.  If they stay, it would be a bit sad as they would be a constant reminder of the abandoned chalet

  3. Thank you for those pics. My company has been providing scaffold at Disneyland for a while. The last few months have been pretty intense as all the work that needs to be completed is on a tight schedule. Fun seeing our equipment randomly on a blog. Again, thank you.

    Finding Nemo is being refurbished to repair plaster, electrical and clean/coat structural steel beams and track.
