Welcome to this weeks Magic Eye Disneyland Resort pictorial.
This pictorial is a bit picture heavy
There is going to be a lot of bouncing back and forth between Disneyland and Disney California Adventure in this pictorial
Earlier in the week, I visited the Disneyland Resort just before closing time. And the Royal Courtyard door was open. Even though there was a black curtain at the gate, there was this one section that was open a bit. I am thinking it was from all the people taking a peak behind the curtain.
So the opening was enough to look inside.
And we can see that the staircase and banister has been rebuilt
Now, we are going to skip to Thursday....
As soon as I walk into Disney California Adventure, I see a swarm of people between the Carthay Ciricle Restaurant and the fountain.
Come to find out there was filming taking place involving Wheel of Fortune
Vanna White and Pat Sajak were there filming
For Frozen Fun's promotional taking place, there is a giant snowflake in front Elias and Company on Buena Vista Street
Back over at Disneyland -
We see progress with the stairs and banister at the Royal Courtyard
Back over at Disney California Adventure -
During Christmas Time, there were snowflakes placed on the lamp posts around Buena Vista Street's fountain circle, following the parade route up towards the Pacific Wharf. But when it came to Cars Land, instead of a snowflake, it was a Route 66 sign. I never noticed it during the day time. What a nice touch.
The next day, when Christmas Time decorations were being removed, this sign was gone as well
Frozen Fun snowflake lit up during the night
The snowflake changes brightness every now and then
Finally, it's Friday!
In Downtown Disney, Frozen Fun banners adorn the posts
Visiting Disney California Adventure -
I wanted to get here early so I can get a picture of the Frozen Fun snowflake before it gets bombarded with everyone wanting to take a picture
From the night before, we see that the snow cotton has been reduced and we see small plants, which I think are to represent grass and trees, have been planted around it. I think it looks a lot better this way than just the cotton snow
Looking around, we see that Condor Flats has been closed off entirely
Signs posted letting Guests know what's going on
Wall map displaying Condor Flats as unaccessible
Because I got pictures of the snowflake without Guests in the way, I head over to Disneyland
Making it through the gate before the Park officially opens
The steampunk exhibit has been replaced with "Snow Queens Art of Ice", which focuses on... what else, Frozen
To see what's inside, visit : The Disney Gallery - Snow Queens Art of Ice
It's so quiet right now walking down Main Street, compared to the previous couple of weeks during Christmas and New Years. But as the day continues, that will definitely change
The reason I wanted to quickly get over to Disneyland after getting the Frozen Fun snowflake picture is because I wanted to get a FastPass for the Royal Theatre's Frozen performance
The FastPass ticket cart is located in the hub area
Umm.. guys, Anna and Elsa are no longer in Fantasyland. I don't know why y'all are heading there ;)
Snow still on the Castle
Got my FastPass for the first performance
Walking around, "La Mascarade d'Orleans" is closed and will reopen as a Pandora jewelry location. Some items that could be found inside can now be found at "Le Bat en Rouge"
The door to the Royal Courtyard is once again closed
Speaking of closed, the Jungle Cruise is closed as well as they revert back to the classic version from the Jingle Cruise edition
The Disneyland Guide Map with Fantasmic! on the cover
How to view Fantasmic!
Critter Country is closed as well
Now, I have about an hour before I need to be back at the Royal Theatre to catch the 11:05 performance of Frozen, so I decide to go back to Disney California Adventure
Anna, Elsa, and Olaf made it on the cover of Disney California Adventure's guide map
Freeze the Night
The map shows Condor Flats closed
Passing by Cars Land, Christmas decorations have almost all disappeared
Because Fly 'n' Buy is closed, the little kiosk near the Corn Dog Castle is selling Soarin' and aviator item
Like the Guide Map stated, Paradise Garden Grill is serving hamburgers and fries
World of Color is also being refurbished
A sign with an environmental message
Redwood Creek Challenge Trail is also down for refurbishment
Can't really see much going on with the Condor Flat / Grizzly Peak airfield
It's getting close to the Frozen performance at the Royal Theatre, so I am once again heading out of Disney California Adventure and returning back to Disneyland
Got there a bit early, so I waited around.
The FastPass ticket stated to be at the theatre between 10:35 at 11:00 and around 10:30 people started to come to the theatre. There was so much confusion as to where to start lining up. One Cast Member who was "directing" everything were telling Guests several different things. And also trying to inform the Cast what's going on, Apparently there were some new procedures on how they want things done. I know nothing about how the Royal Theatre is handled and just by looking at everything and listening to what was being discussed between 3 different Cast Members, even I easily understood what needed to be done. It didn't take a genius to figure it out... but among them.. I guess it did.
And the one Cast Member who was informing the other Cast would just not stop complaining about the new procedures and how he didn't like them. He made sure every Cast Member he encountered knew how much he didn't like the new procedures. I almost wanted to blurt out "Let it Go!"
After a small delay, it was time for the presentation
Cute dolls to represent Anna and Elsa as children
Adult Anna and Elsa join the cast
Such a handsome Hans
Life can be so much more with you!
with you! with you!
Can I saw something crazy
Will you marry me?
Can I saw something even crazier? Yes!
"Can I saw something crazy . blahblahblahblahblah"
ha ha ha ha
That scene was so funny, had the whole audience laughing
The party is over, close the gate
Please Elsa, I can't live like this anymore
What did I ever do to you?
Why do you shut me out?
Why do you shut the world out?
I said ENOUGH!
Sorcery. I knew there was something going on here
Anna meets Kristoff and Sven
Fighting off a pack of wolves
Flotsam and Jetsam?
The hitchhiking ghosts?
No, it's Kristoff
We interrupt this performance with a special bulletin
Arendelle is in deep deep deep snow
Elsa striking Anna in the heart
Who thought I loved you?
Some people are just worth melting for
It's over Beast
Belle is mine!
Actually they didn't say it. But every time I see this scene in the movie, I can't help but think of Gaston when he's about to strike Beast
What a great performance
The Magic Eye Theater is under refurbishment to take out Big Hero 6 sneak peek
Because the Parks are getting crowded, I decide to leave on Monorail
Taking a look Condor Flats / Grizzly Peak Airfield from the air
That will conclude today's pictorial
