Dance Your Way To The Joys Of Construction and Refurbishments at the Disneyland Resort

Good day readers

Sorry that this pictorial is a day late.

On Wednesday, Disneyland began their Egg-stravaganza Easter Egg Hunt. So of course I had to do it. But this year, Downtown Disney got included into the hunt, which meant that there were now three separate hunts.

The three Easter Egg hunts did take quite a bit of time for me to complete.
On top of that, Disneyland and Disney California Adventure didn't open up till 9 a.m. compared to their usual 8 a.m. opening. So everything was pushed back for me.

But I am here, ready to deliver this weeks pictorial

After bag check / metal detector scanning, you'll notice that the Disneyland Resort ticket booths have updated their ticket pricing signage.

They are now electronic and can be easily updated and changed when needed.
Which should be ASAP
As there is a misprint.

"Disney's California Adventure" ?

I hope people don't get confused or lost when trying to find Disney California Adventure

As Walt Disney once said ...

I felt that there should be something built. Some kind of amusement enterprise built. Where the rich adults and children could have fun together

Yikes!
Disney California Adventure sure is popular this morning

It must be all the Annual Passholders coming into the Park so they can preview the new Luigi's Rollickin' Roadsters in Cars Land

Two of the Easter Eggs are supposedly hidden along the back trail of Grizzly River Run.
Thing is, with it being under refurbishment, there are walls preventing from anyone going back there.

So what did they end up doing?
Moving them.

This part of the hunt took me forever to find.

The Egg-Stravaganza is suppose to last until March 27, 2016
And Grizzly River Run is under refurbishment until March 15, 2016

It's pretty much 11:00 a.m. at this point. So my idea is to start over in Critter Country and go to the Hungry Bear Restaurant to get some pictures of the River before those tables are taken,  And then work my way around Disneyland, while also completing the Eggstravaganza Easter Egg Hunt map.

Arriving at the Hungry Bear Restaurant ...

  2. Awesome pictures!! I find all these shots of the clearings for Star Wars Land so fascinating!! In some ways it makes me sad seeing all the deconstruction going on, but also, I am excited that we get to see some of these otherwise hidden pieces of the park (such as the old railroad tunnel, and the rooftops of Fantasyland from outside the park).

    I just really hope they bring back some trees when they start on building the new land. All the natural tree cover is something that I have always valued in Disneyland (particularly this part of the park). By the looks of the concept art, there should be plenty of trees, so that is good!
