Busy Busy Breezy Day

Leaving for the Disneyland Resort, noticed heavy clouds in the sky as well as it being windy. But it didn't seem to deter many people from enjoying the Resort.

Parking at the Toy Story Parking Lot, received a new parking receipt

The old ones would have you circle the section and isle number. Now, these new ones have you write it down. I guess the theory is more people would notice the blank lines, write the information down, take it with you and when you return, just take out your ticket and walk to your car.

First stop, Disney California Adventure!

Exposed curve section of the construction work for the new entrance

Carthay Circle Theatre taking shape fast

Getting different angle shots as I head to Paradise Pier

In a couple of months, these walls will be down and Guests will be able to go under the sea with Ariel

The wave patterns and the sea shells were highlighted

*above picture altered a bit so that the wall behind the glass can be see
It may be hard to see because of the stain glass, but seems to be some sort of painted overhang in the loading area

*picture above altered a bit so that the painting behind the glass can be seen
Another section of the painted overhang

Looking at the water tower for Goofy's Sky School

Work being done on Goofy's Sky School

Some pictures of the new park

-Mickey's Fun Wheel-

Work being done on one of the side panels of the attraction

Another look at Goofy's Sky School water tower

Cars Land construction

Mater's Junkyard Jamboree construction

Looking towards Goofy's Sky School from Silly Symphony Swings

A cloud has taken shape in the sky

Some lush trees have been planted.

Because of the wind, Golden Zephyr was closed so I couldn't go on there to get some air shots

Some touch ups

World of Color's viewing area railings were getting repainted. But it looks like the painters just abandoned their post.

Glimmer and shimmer

Still working on the trim

The support arms underneath the rotunda have now been fully uncovered

The raft has been touched up with some paint again, this time on the white canvas portion

Looking at the Carthay Circle from the runway

As my friend and I were walking around, the crane was actively working, putting this structure together

View of Cars Land from the Blue Sky Cellar patio

Another view of the framework for the Carthay from the Hollywood Pictures Backlot entrance

Blue tarps still on top of the marquee.  Must have some leak issues. Also still missing neon. Wonder what is taking so long?

Heading out to Disneyland

- Disneyland -

The graphic tarp has come down due to the winds

There is a lot of traffic here

Replacing some shingles...

Replacing some wood trim...

Blank on this side of Star Tours

But the sign has appeared on the other side

If you look closely, you can see "From the Creative Forces of Disney and George Lucas" right above the Star Tours title

Looks like some texture was added here

The tarps have come down from the Star Trader

Looking at Star Tours's sign from the second level of Innoventions

I wonder how the Star Tours / Star Trader building would have looked like if the brown portion of the roof had been repainted blue too

Inside Innoventions, two new posters for Cars 2 and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Riding the monorail, looking at the Carthay Circle Theatre construction

Now looking at Disney California Adventure's construction of their new entrance

Over in Fronteirland, a new building frame has been constructed

Looking down on the structure from the Columbia

Heading out for the day

Hope you enjoyed these pictures
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
I really appreciate it

Until next time...
