Day After One More Disney Day at the Disneyland Resort

Because of 2012 being a Leap Year, Disneyland stayed open for 24 hours from 6am on February 29 to 6am March 1.

I was planning on attending "One More Disney Day" from 3am-6am. But during the day and early evening there were reports that both Parks were busy in preparation of Disneyland staying open in the middle of the night.  Because Twitter was buzzing how crowded Disneyland was all throughout the night, I decided to stay home with the hopes that when I go to the Parks in the morning, it will be slow.

I thought the backside of the mountain range of Cars Land facing Harbor Blvd would have gotten the same kind of treatment of rock work finish like that facing Paradise Pier.  But I guess they don't need to impress the outside world.  ha ha ;)

It's just a little after 10am and it doesn't look to bad entering Disney California Adventure

Buena Vista Street work

Grizzly River Rapids under rehab

The extended boardwalk before the lift

Last Friday the walls in front of the Little Mermaid finally came down.

Paradise Pier stores

The scaffolding and walls have been removed. Overall it looks more pleasing to look at. Removing the big Jack-in-the-box was a smart move

Mickey's Fun Wheel -

Cozy Cone Motel food stations

Radiator Springs Courthouse

Smaller plants now being planted

Looks like the topiary that will be shaped like a cone has arrived

A new sign for the Paradise Pier shops, now entitled Boardwalk Bazaar

What great shoes I have!

Jay, what are you doing? What are you putting on my feet?"

I can't believe you're making me walk around in these!

The extras

Autopia got its cover back for its queue

Tomorrowland Train Station still closed for painting

With the Disneyland Monorail closed for refurbishment, just continued on my way around the Matterhorn

It looks like they killed off this vine to finally remove it.  I never did care for it as it grew against the mountain

Refreshment Corner reopened

New flooring has been placed

Heading out now

I hope you enjoyed today's pictorial
Thank you for your patience and stopping by to check it out

Until Next Time...


  1. Great pictures, definitely NOT boring. Good stuff! Thanks.

  2. Matterhorn lookes so much better with the new pait job, even with just less than half uncovered. The snow looks a lot more realistic.

  3. No monorail-pics?

    1. The Monorail is under rehab until March 10.
