Christmas Time 2013 has concluded and now we are transitioning into the so called "off season".
I don't know if there is an "off season" anymore as it seems that part of Disney wants the Parks consistently full of people. Of course, this is while many refurbishments (mostly in Disneyland) are taking place.
Walking through Downtown Disney, new banners have been placed.
"Star Command, I'm going to need more time."
Disneyland Resort Keeps Getting Happier
Since not a whole lot is taking place inside Disney California Adventure, we will visit there first this lovely morning
Buena Vista Street Restrooms under refurbishment
Scary mannequin heads
Hollywoodland is almost back to normal. There are a few Christmas decorations up here and there.
Also the line for Radiator Springs Racers FastPass isn't very long as it is only pass Disney Jr Live on Stage
With the conclusion of World of Color Winter Dreams, World of Color is under refurbishment to transition back to its normal mode
Toy Story Midway Mania still packing them in
To think, only last week this street was a festive atmosphere with ¡Viva Navidad!
If you missed the ¡Viva Navidad! Street Party, check out my video. :)
Redwood Creek Challenge Trail under refurbishment
With World of Color under refurbishment, all the FastPass machines are for Grizzly River Ruuu......Wha-! Why are they getting a FastPass for Grizzly?!? It's almost a walk on. And the return time is only like 45 minutes. I don't think it's gonna get that warm where people are going to flock to the attraction and create a huge demand ha ha
Is that smoke from the burning rubber tires?!
No, it's just the fog effect at the end of the ride
Some Christmas decorations are still hanging around Cars Land
Sorry Mickey, but I have to leave now.
But don't worry, I am just heading across the street to Disneyland
Girls in tutus.
I guess the girl in white is or has gotten married and is showing Minnie Mouse her ring
They are showing their #DisneySide
Well that's good to know ... that most of the attractions are "now open". They must have short wait times
The Jingle Cruise has reverted back to the Jungle Cruise
Parts of Rivers of America have been drained for Fantasmic! refurbishment
Sailing Ship Columbia with scaffolding
From Haunted Mansion Holiday to just Haunted Mansion
Graphic tarps around New Orleans Square
Is there going to be another cross section constructed between these buildings?
It looks like it
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad refurbishment
Why is I.B. Hearty the only Big Thunder Mountain Railroad train I see being tested
I hope there aren't any issues where it may not open up in the time they want it.
After all, I would assume they will have to do the water jugs with the other trains as well
Circle of Life right there, out in the wilderness
Poor Moose, why can they never keep you clean
Let's go check out Big Thunder Ranch!
Clarabelle Cow and Horace Horsecollar
Bringing in a new batch of characters
The female Cast Member is telling the characters to watch out as the horse has made a little mess
The girls don't like what they just saw
Of course, being the evil step-sisters as they are, they were calling out for Cinderella to come clean it up
The young gentleman is going roped like a bandit
Oh man, to only be is this kid's shoes. ha ha ha
Ladies and Gentlemen
I give you.... Sarsaparilla Sam!
Nice to see the Skyway chalet still there.
Finding Nemo is closed for a lengthy refurbishment that could have to attraction open in late September
Soon the scrims will be up on the Monorail platform so that the only way to see the lagoon will be from riding the Monorail
Riding the Disneyland Monorail for shots of the Lagoon will be 2007 all over again for me ha ha
If that's the water line for a full lagoon, the draining is gonna take quite some time.
The Flower Market that was here in Center Street for the Christmas holiday has now been cleared
3 wheeled Segway ha ha
Inside the Disney Gallery at the Ink and Paint department
Just inside the gallery of paintings, an artist sketches Elsa from the movie Frozen
And an artist paints Goofy on a cel
Amazing to watch
Speaking of watches, it's about time for me to head out
That will conclude Friday's pictorial
Thanks for stopping by and checking it out

Until Next Time...
