Less Than A Month Away

Can you believe it? In less than a month away, Disney California Adventure will have its relaunch and Disneyland will unveil the Matterhorn with new bobsleds. This should be an exciting summer long as you don't mind crowds. ha ha

Getting inside Disney California Adventure, looking at Buena Vista Street

Buena Vista Street's flag pole has been installed

Why did I take a picture of one of the outdoor vending carts at California Adventure? Take a look at the graphic design..

..and the item & price sign.

Now notice a new graphic design for the carts for Paradise Pier

As well as a themed item & price sign to go along with it.

Checking out Cars Land from Mickey's Fun Wheel

Finally! I get to see a race car running the track

"Meetings first Tuesday of every month at 7:30pm"

Side by side

Some of the poles on the right have missing lights

Soon there will be day time water shows in the Pier

Tarps are down from Ghirardelli

Some signage and a few tires inside Tow Mater's Junkyard Jamboree queue.

The poles in Cars Land have received wires

Looking down Route 66

I think the painted decals on the street state "Route 66"

Flo's V8 Cafe Cast Member costume for the females

Flo's V8 Cafe male Cast Member costume (back side)

The lonely tractor that sits in the "petting zoo". I wonder how long it will take for them (if at all) to take it out once kids injure themselves on it

More stuff inside Mater's Junkyard Jamboree

Umbrellas in their plastic sleeve on the second level of the Carthay

Stained glass window for Clarabelle's Ice Cream

Some more detail work for Fiddler, Fifer, and Practical Cafe

A painted sign for Carthay Circle Theatre

Whoa! That is one tall man ;)

Fiddler, Fifer, and Practical Cafe sign painted on the side

Over near Elias & Company, another sign is being painted. This time for The Buena Vista Bugle

"Trumpeting the news daily"

Over in Hollywood Land, the Mad T Party set up is still underway

Some Chinese lanterns with cool pattern hang above

A Drink Me stand

The Mad T Party stage with a guitar like tea pot

It's a big table with a key dangling

And inside, it's like an upside down room

Wonder what this design is? It can be found on one of the purple lanterns

The design on the purple lantern is what is being placed at the house of cards

"a bug's land" is also getting spruced up

The clovers are getting some new green in them

Old and new

I can see another painted sign, this time for Elias & Company

And there it is!


The menus for Tomorrowland Terrace are now flat screen t.v. monitors

The picture on the right changes, showing some of the menu items

Over in Fantasyland...

Brave's new meet-and-greet will soon open for Guests to meet Merida

Some new Haunted Mansion themed stroller signs

Some work in New Orleans Square

Matterhorn bobsleds were being tested

With Cars Land opening, the Monorail's got a new wrap

Buena Vista Street as seen from the Monorail

That will conclude today's pictorial.

If you want, click here to see some shots from the night before

Until Next Time...


  1. Perfect! Excactly the wide-shots I need!
    Thank You very much.

  2. If I'm not mistaken, I think the light poles with missing lights in front of Pier Ice Cream Co. are totally new light poles. I walked by them yesterday and thought to myself "I don't think these were here before..."

  3. Good stuff here! Keep it up. Thanks!!!

  4. I hope they fix those electric poles in Cars land. The wires are just lazily draped over the crossbars and not even strung properly. Looks tacky.

    1. Judging from the photos, they are obviously not done. At the very least there will be more wires coming, and most likely adjustments.
