Walking to the Disneyland Resort, the weather sure looked gloomy.
But the weather app stated that any type of rain would fall sometime afternoon.
Boy was I taken by surprise.
Disneyland and Disney California Adventure opened at 9 am.
I was expecting it to be a mad house since the marathon was taking place
But when I got to the Main Gates at 8:50 am, I was able to walk right on in with little to no wait.
And overall it didn't look too bad when walking down Main Street USA
Big Thunder Mountain delayed opening
Pirates of the Caribbean having a delayed opening
The C.K. Holiday is parked at the New Orleans Square train station.
This is my favorite locomotive
But I couldn't get inside to get a closer look at the time as the entrance to the station still had the chains up.
Can you believe that behind the tarp is the uncovered balcony seating for the Hungry Bear Restaurant
Checking out the flat, dry river for Star Wars Land
Splash Mountain having a delayed opening
Man, the West Side of the Park isn't cooperating this morning
Over at the Jungle Cruise, it has reopened from its refurbishment
Wave goodbye to all the passengers aboard
No more netting around the rails. You can now get a clear view of all the animals again
Hit it Skip!
If I am looking right, the refurbishment included the boats now being hugged by two docks
Before, there was more of gap on the spur dock than before.
Now, it had been raining for about 10 - 15 minutes
And Tarzan Treehouse was still open!
So I took advantage of it to climb the treehouse to see what I can see of Star Wars Land
Alice Through The Looking Glass merchandise
I wasn't prepared for the rain.
I had no umbrella and no jacket
I needed to keep dry as much as possible
Oh! I know what I can do.
New characters are to appear at Turtle Talk with Crush.
So I can go to Disney California Adventure and check it out, and I can be dry.
Now I just have to get over there
Hank (from Finding Dory) made a quick appearance
Marlin makes his first appears in the updated version
Dory and Destiny teach us how to speak whale
Of course, calling a whale invites a whale
Leaving the Animation Building, the rain had stopped.
The Sunset Showcase Theater is hosting the sneak peek of Alice Through The Looking Glass
As you can see, props from the Mad T Party are being reused for this preview
Inside it's a little bit it's a little bit Wonderland and whole lot of Arendale
These were used at D23 Expo 2015 to help promote Alice Through The Looking Glass
It's a Wonderland Snap Chat!
Heading back to Disneyland to see if there's a chance of Big Thunder opening
Trains still in the station
Looking at the Big Thunder Trail and see nothing but dirt
Big Thunder trains were being sent through the mountain.
Soon after, the attraction opened
Back seat baby!
Which was is Star Wars Land?
Wanna get out of the Resort before it rains again
But first, have to go to the Mickey and Friends Parking Structure for Star Wars Land pictures
And before leaving, we'll leave the Resort with a view of balloons
That will conclude today's pictorial
Thank for stopping by and checking it out

Until Next Time...
