I couldn't believe it.
I get to the Main Gate around 7:40 am thinking it will be a breeze walking in.
Nope, they hadn't open the gates yet.
Around 7:45 am, gates are open.
And wouldn't you know it, I get the slowest line.
I was probably like the 30th person back and I got inside Disneyland at 8 am.
How the crowd looked when I got inside Disneyland
Now everyone is being held at the end of Main Street USA.
And I was able to maneuver my way closer to the Candy Palace.
It was 8 a.m. and Disneyland wasn't even open yet, even though it was suppose to be.
It was about 8:06 a.m. and the rope was finally dropped.
I quickly went to Big Thunder to get a Fast Pass cause I wanted to get some outside shots of the new Red Rose Taverne (Village Haus Restaurant) before the crowds came.
When I was heading to the Red Rose Taverne, I saw all these people on Sleeping Beauty bridge.
My first thought was "no, this can't be for Peter Pan's Flight"
Yup, that line is for Peter Pan's Flight.
To tie in with the live version of Beauty and the Beast, the Village Haus Restaurant has been transformed into the Red Rose Taverne
The restaurant doesn't open till 11 am
Heading just around the river bend...
Work taking place on the Sailing Ship Columbia
More frame work for that building being erected in Star Wars Land
The little supports for the riverboat rail are being reinstalled
This Big Thunder train was brought into service, but was sent around empty.
Star Wars Land from Big Thunder
It's about 10:30 a.m. at this time so I am gonna head over to the Red Rose Taverne and just hang out until it opens
People sitting around, waiting for the Red Rose Taverne to open
It's about 10:50 a.m. and people start to form a line at the entrance doors
Is this a line for a ride?
No, it's a line for the restaurant
Inside the doors, the wooden figures of Pinocchio, J. Worthington Foulfellow, and Gideon on both sides have been covered up with a Red Rose Taverne curtain
Beauty and the Beast themed dinning hall
Now of course you can tell that the Red Rose Taverne is themed more from the 1991 animated hit film Beauty and the Beast.
I didn't try and of the food.
I am not much of a food person and so I decided that I will pass on it and maybe try it at a later date.
As I am walking out of Fantasyland, a bunch of people start to head in my direction.
I turn around and notice that the Beast is walking about 20 feet behind me.
The Beast in his update royal jacket and pants
These Villagers want to attack the Beast!
... with cellphones, autograph books, pens, and even their own children
Do you see what I see?
The Hollywood Tower, home to the Twilight Zone Tower Of Terror is displayed on the Coca-Cola cups at the Resort
Twilight Zone Tower of Terror / Guardians of the Galaxy Mission: Breakout! is practically covered up again
Brown tarp strikes again
At the Mickey and Friends Parking Structure to view the continuous construction of Star Wars Land
That will conclude Friday's pictorial to the Disneyland Resort
