Checking Up on Refurbishment Work at the Disneyland Resort
Visiting Disney California Adventure
Walking down Buena Vista Street
Today the Condor Flats rope drop was pushed all the way back to the airplane.
Most of the time the rope drop is at the entrance to Condor Flats from Buena Vista Street
Grizzly River Run refurbishment
Across from Toy Story Midway Mania, work continues on the west structure
I was hoping that Little Mermaid would have soft opened when I was there. But it was still closed.
After I visited Disneyland, I did come back to check to see if Little Mermaid had opened, but they had it closed.
Apparently, it did open for a soft open in between the two times I came over here. Not sure if it had reopened after I left.
I just want to apologize that I didn't get pictures this time around of the new enhancements. I should have some pictures by next week's pictorial. Although by then it will be "old" news. ha ha
Good thing the song is called "Freeway of Love" and not "Highway of Love". ha ha
Cause after all, the highway is was killed the town of Radiator Springs
It's been 10 years that Guests have been dropping in on Hollywood History.
Why haven't we received an random drop sequence like Disney Hollywood Studios in Florida?
Doc McStuffins in the house!
Main Street is relatively crowded
Speaking of Main Street and crowds....
There are some days when the Park is so busy that moving on Main Street U.S.A. can be a hassle with all the foot traffic. To alleviate the congestion, Disney will open up the back sides of Main Street for Guests flow. But these back stage areas aren't that pretty and distract from the Disney magic.
But now, after all these years, Disneyland will start constructing themed corridors on the back side of Main Street U.S.A. starting May 12, 2014. These corridors will move Guests efficiently while still maintaining an onstage show. These corridors should open up sometime in the Fall of 2014.
What will these corridors look like?
Supposedly they will be lined with themed Victorian fencing and themed sound and lighting will give the feel of Main Street.
Because of the construction taking place of the themed corridors, the Main Street Lockers will be unavailable for Guests.
During that time, the only lockers available would be the ones outside the Main Gate and the ones inside Disney California Adventure
Although the lockers will be closed to Guests to store things in, this area will be used as First Aid for Guests.
The lockers will reopen when the corridor is completed
Why are the Main Street Lockers being uses as a First Aid station when they have one at the end of Main Street?
First Aid will actually get remodeled during the construction of the corridors
Looking onto Main Street from First Aid
More Adventureland and Tiki inspired merchandise
Indiana Jones Adventure reopened
New Orleans Square rooftop work
Looking down at the Indian Jones Adventure queue from the Treehouse
Alice in Wonderland refurbishment
The leaves look as though they are getting a fresh coat of paint
Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage is suppose to open at the end of September 2014, but don't be surprised if the refurbishment is extended with a reopening in Oct 2014.
Work continues over at the Subs, but now work can be seen outside in the lagoon once again
Now only will the East side of Main Street get themed corridors, but the West side should be too.
About to head out
As I stopped in the shade to check something, and that's when I noticed this mom reading a Frozen book to her daughter
That will conclude today's pictorial
Sorry for not getting any Little Mermaid shots today
Thanks for stopping by and checking it out
Feel free to leave a comment
Until Next Time...
