It's good to be back at Disney on a Friday.
The big news today is the announcement that the Disneyland Resort will be banning selfie sticks come June 30.
Recently, the Disneyland Resort started to ban the selfie sticks on attractions, where they could easily be extended past the length of a human arm. Many times, the sticks themselves would get damaged. And to protect Guests from any type of debris it could cause, the Parks started to prohibit the use of them on attractions.
Now, just like museums, concert events, and other public entertainment venues, Selfie Sticks will not be allowed inside either Disneyland or Disney California Adventure
The Cast Members here at the Bag Check will have their work cut out for them once the ban takes place.
When a selfie stick is observed, a designated Cast Member will escort the Guest(s) to Lost and Found, where Guest Relations will tag the stick and give the Guest(s) a claim slip to retrieve the stick upon leaving. All Guests must adhere to this new policy. If a Guest(s) refuses, Security will be called out.

At Humphry's, this Coca-Cola sign had been hanging for more than a month.
But no drinks could be found inside.
If no drinks were being sold (at the time), why have a coca-cola sign?
Because they knew eventually there would be a place to sell soda.
Last week this refreshment stand opened up just outside of Humphry's

I think he works better in this part of the Buena Vista Street.
He seems to be more visible for Guests
The area where the young boy is sitting on the railing, that's a queue to see Aladdin, Jasmine, and the Genie next to Aladdin's Oasis.
The other queue is for the Tiki Juice Stand

The weather was warming up fast, so a ride on Splash Mountain was on a number of Guests mind while in the area

Only 5 more days until the official reopening of Peter Pan's Flight from it's refurbishment with enhanced special effects.
On this particular day, the attraction was open for Cast Members to experience the attraction
While in Fantasyland...
I noticed that Dumbo is no longer handing out the plastic feathers to Guest in line.
Instead, they now hand out pieces of paper with a magic feather picture on it.
Guests would either keep the feathers, or they get damaged, or lost. So this probably cuts down on the costs of having to keep replacing the feathers
Someone needs to do some cleaning around here
