Showers of Sun at the Disneyland Resort

I was a little worried for today. Yesterday it had rained and the forecast was for rain today. But when I woke up today, I looked at the clock with the temperature on it and it just stated "cooler".

It turned out to be a wonderful day at the Disneyland Resort

It's about 9:50am and very little crowd heading inside Disney California Adventure

Looking at some of the buildings of Buena Vista Street

Looks good

After a couple months missing, Soarin' Over California finally got its marquee picture sign back

Now all that needs some touching up is the hang glider

Looking towards Carthay Circle Theatre before Disney California Adventure opens up

Carthay Circle Theatre's marquee

The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Undersea Adventure will be closing down for approx a week to do some redressing

Silly Symphony Swings under refurbishment

Looking at Triton through some trees

Flo's V8 Cafe received neon around the rim

Beach balls for Luigi's Flying Tires

If you look on the far left, the wooden wall for Luigi's, there appears some sort of graphic

Tow Mater's Junkyard Jamboree

California Screamin's queue

The new coverings for California Screamin's queue is almost complete

No vehicles on the street!

Stanley, the founder

The fencing around for Cozy Cone Motel.  In the far back, against the window of Luigi's, there appears to be a flying tire.  Is this a photo op (like Mr Toad or Dumbo) or is it for demonstration

Motor Oil and gasoline pumps for Flo's V8 Cafe

On the post by Luigi's, there is a sign pointing in the direction of "a bug's land"

Mary Niven walking through Cars Land

Queue for Mater's Junkyard Jamboree

At the cross roads of Radiator Springs, signs point in the direction for Guests if they want to go to the Pacific Wharf or Paradise Pier

Carthay Circle Theatre's fire alarms were going off. I am assuming they were testing the system

Buena Vista Street

Elias & Co

Set up for Mad T Party

Monster's Inc's facade looks like it might blend well with Mad T Party

House of Cards

Back on Buena Vista Street


The side rock wall where the vine once grew blends in with the rest of the mountain very well!

Buena Vista Street's entrance as seen from the Monorail.

Malificent and Prince Philip, and Buzz and Woody in lego form

Whoa! did you see that? A new color bobsled

Looking into Buena Vista Street via the Monorail

Have seen this wooden structure (now covered) for some time being built. It sort of reminds me of a lift hill on Thunder Mountain

A sled painted in a different color

Soon this will be gone

Heading out now... with one last look towards Disney California Adventure

Hope you enjoyed today's pictorial

Until Next Time...


  1. Hey this was awesome! Thanks for posting the gret pics. We're going mid-May so I hope there isn't so much stuff covered.

  2. Hard to believe all this money spent on a total makeover and the result is only one good ride (hopefully good) RSR. The majority of construction is just for shops to peddle merchandise. Oh well, gotta make their money back I guess.
