What a glorious day to visit the Disneyland Resort.
The weather is much better than last week's overcast. I know we are coming upon the cold season, and I am not looking forward to it. So I am gonna bask in the sun as much as possible
Getting to the Main Entrance Plaza around 7:50 a.m., I see a high demand to get into Disneyland.
Over at Disney California Adventure, not so much.
But don't let that fool you.
Disney California Adventure had Early Entry today so the gates to get inside the Park were already open,
Over at Disneyland, the gates were still closed.
I think Disneyland opened late today because when I looked at the Main Street train station clock, it stated 8 a.m. and the gates were still closed
Once the gates opened, the lines began to move
Some lines moved faster than others.
For some time, when entering either Disneyland or Disney California Adventure, you'd encounter two Cast Members. The first one was positioned outside of the gate, checking tickets and taking photos of Guests to match the ticket, and the other Cast Member at the turnstile scanning and checking hand stamps (if needed) to enter the Park(s).
Now the Cast Member at the turnstile is doing everything.
Finally inside Disneyland
Work being done on the sidewalk by the Mad Hatter on Main Street U.S.A.
Because the ramp is also involved, there is a make shift ramp to accommodate wheelchairs and strollers
Heading to New Orleans Square...
It's the Balcony of Angels
At the Royal Courtyard, its refurbishment continues to take place
Although not much visually is different between this week and last
Haunted Mansion magnets

Last week, I pointed out that the Halloween Carnival canvas sign stated "Hear Haunted Hillbillies".
The probably was, there were no more hillbillies as they were all let go.
So now the sign has changed to reflect this and now states Halloween Magic in its place
Heading into Fantasyland from the backside, we encounter the line to get a Return Time ticket for the Frozen Meet and Greet. The Cast Members were handing out 12:00 - 12:20. So if you got back here, you'd probably be getting them for like between 4 pm or 5 pm.
Looking up towards the Skyway chalet
Notice something behind the rope
Probably for the Mickey's Halloween Treat
Sept 27, 2014 should be the return of Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage from its refurbishment
There is one Disney fan-based site that constantly insists that there was no work being with Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage and that it sat untouched for a number of months before work got under way. Contrary to what they think, there was massive cosmetic work done to the attraction.
When it reopens, don't expect much as far as the show is concerned, as that's pretty much the same
The parapet leading up to the Sleeping Beauty Castle drawbridge will receive new railing to prevent anyone from falling into the moat
Markers have been cut to mark where the stanchions for the railings will go
We also see that the benches have been removed to decrease further temptations
Uh oh...don't think about it little girl!
No matter how hard you must resist...
DON'T JUMP OVER THE RAILINGS AND INTO THE MOAT!
Big Hero 6 Sneak Peek has taken over the Magic Eye Theater
Can't really see much behind the tarps by First Aid
Main Street Photo Supply Co. has reopened
Over in Town Square, as work continues with the installation of the new Main Street corridors, we can see just a teeny bit of color behind the tarp
And I think that's new molding we see
While exiting, the lines to get into Disneyland were more than I thought they would be during this time of day
As we make our way to Disney California Adventure, we can see a small build up at the turnstiles
Now ... there is talk that Luigi's Flying Tires may be getting a complete revamp when it goes down for refurbishment after the holidays
If it becomes true, there will be a new concept that doesn't involve "flying", but more like dancing
I will welcome this revamp of of Luigi's Flying Tires.
I always found the tires to be too big and bulky. And fitting three guest never really got them anywhere.
And let's not forget about getting over the tire can be such a pain.
Of course, they made them big because they wanted to increase capacity when compared to the old Flying Saucers vehicles in Tomrrowland
Work still continues with the Toy Story Midway Mania queue structures
It's Baby Bieber, getting his picture taken!
The Cast Member was stating that Guests with multi-day tickets (2-Day, 3-Day, etc.) do not need a handstamp with the new system
1-Day ticket holders on the other hand still need one, as I had to get one when I exited
An ad for ABC's Once Upon a Time's Frozen story arch
That will conclude today's pictorial
