From the Sea to Space

Time for the weekly visit to the Disneyland Resort.  As always, Disney's California Adventure is the first stop.

Looks like the walls with graphics of what is to come were placed in front of Golden Dreams

Some cement 

Last pictorial update, I mentioned that the Orange Stinger will be closing in July. Well, I think it may be closing a lot sooner than that. July 17th might be the last day for the attraction. So you may want to buzzzz on over before then to get one last ride on the bees.

More construcion pics on the bay

Now, lets head over to Disneyland

The rockets flying high above the ground

Looks like the planters are being formed

New pieces under the monorail beam

Looks like the new pieces are continuing all around

Work being done on the Orbitor

Well, that's about it for now. Time to head home

A New Float [SPOILER]

I just happen to have my camera with me as I was walking through the Main Entrance Plaza when I saw something from the corner of my eye that was glowing, with sparking lights. I wondered what it could be. As the glowing spectacle approached the Sun Plaza, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was the new opening float for Disney's Electrical Parade.

Unfortunately, there was no music to accompany this float. It was being pulled by one of those Disney float buggies. Only two floats were passing through, the new float and Cinderella's Pumpkin Coach float.

A Simpson's Suprise

Talking about The Simpson’s? But Mint, I thought this was all about Disney.

Oh, but it is. Let me explain...

On May 17, 2009 the season final of the Simpson’s, I had a good laugh when I saw yet another Disney reference in their episode. This time it deals with the new Disney • Pixar movie UP.

The Magic Always Takes Us Far Away

With it being a special day today, what better place to celebrate a birthday than at the Disneyland Resort

The small world boats getting packed up

2 Croc's ?

King Triton's Carousel not opened today? I for sure thought it would be

Palm Trees in a place where "California plays"

Construction pics

So it looks like I was right and the "entry point" was wrong. KTC is indeed open for Guests

The place where Cast Members park their cars. It looks like the parking lot is almost ready for paying Guests

All lines lead to the white tent

Word is that the Orange Stinger will close sooner than stated. July 14th seems to be the date being mentioned.

So long Dino Jack

Next week, walls should be going up in front of Golden Dreams. And in June, inside removale should be taking place.

Disneyland getting into the summer spirit with Memorial Day and Fourth of July

Astro Orbitor and it's new color scheme

Over in the Small World area, the light towers seem to have the confettii machines for the "Magical" fireworks show

And some sort of new light (?)

Replacement of the attachements that are underneath the monorail beam

Looks like they were able to get some more of the white cement areas placed in

Now hand santizers are being sold in the parks

This made me laugh

Some shots of the new Crocodile

Don't forget!
