Is Spring Break over?
I mean, the Disneyland Resort hours have been adjusted. It's that time when the parks don't open late, but they don't open early.
Today, both Parks opened at 9 am.
Because not much is going on in Disney California Adventure, I wanted to visit Disneyland first.
Typically when the Parks would open at 8 am, I would spend about an hour in Disney California Adventure, then head over to Disneyland.
Well, since Disneyland and Disney California Adventure opened at 9 am, I went inside Disneyland first, because that's the usual time frame I would be in that Park, and I wanted to stick to "schedule"
Getting inside Disneyland around 8:55 am
Waiting for the Park to open
My first stop would be Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
It appears that most everyone was heading that way.
It had been closed Mon - Thurs for a short refurbishment
Star Wars Land construction
Firework launcher can be seen
I like turtles!
Big Thunder Trail ... now looks like a trail
Splash Mountain closed. Not sure if it's just temporary at this time. It's not listed to be under refurbishment on the Disneyland App
Looking at the dry River
Markers have been placed.
For what? Not sure
My first thought is that it's where the track for the Mark Twain / Sailing Ship Columbia is gonna be placed.
The line to register for the Jedi Training Trials of the Temple
You sunk my Pirate Ship!
Have your very own Crystal Skull
Now Disneyland is getting busier
Now at Disney California Adventure
A wall has been placed at the courtyard of the Hyperion Theater
With the Food and Wine Festival taking place, I guess there's no time to learn how to draw a bowl of Fruit
As you can see, the Food and Wine booths have not opened yet for Guests
While walking towards the Avenue of the Food and Wine Festival, I was watching Guests order some cotton candy.
And that's when I notice this little do hickey on an Outdoor Vending Cart.
The Mickey reminds me of the symbol used for the Magic Bands at Walt Disney World
I wonder if they plan on letting Guests pay for their items with their smart phone.
Using Apple Pay, Android Pay, Samsung Pay, etc.
Another look at the Disney Vacation Club spot at the Blue Sky Cellar
Although Luigi's Rollickin' Roadsters is alright, I still can't believe that the LA Times gave it a glowing review.
Watching the attraction a number of times already, I constantly see Guests leave the queue once they see what the attraction does.
Come on people! This is a great ride! The LA Times says so.
Watching the attraction, I have often fantasized different dance routines and if that would have made the attraction any more fun.
But with the glowing review from Brady MacDonald, I have a feeling that Disney won't see the need to change it.
The back of the station wagon was open, filled with camping essentials
Great window decals on the station wagon
Brownstone National Park - Humphrey and Ranger J Audubon Woodlore can be found
Eureka Gold and Timber Company - The mining company that can be found in Grizzly Peak
Rainbow Caverns - Referencing the old Frontierland attraction "Mine Train Through Nature's Wonderland"
Texas Land of Heroes - Davy Crockett
Pack Mule Days - Referencing the old Frontierland attraction Pack Mules (1955 - 1973)
