Contributing photographer Jason of disneygeek.com sends us these photos from his trip to the parks on Friday, September 30, 2016.
Since Laura was in the parks to cover Halloween Time and the Halloween Party I will focus on some other aspects from the day. First up a check of the Star Wars Construction. This week just a quick video clip overview site (for a more in dept photo look visit my site).
Along the Mickey and Friends Tramway landscape work is underway.
A lot of rocks have been brought in on both sides.
Here you can get an idea of where they are heading with the look.
In Disneyland’s Town Square the cannons have been removed and the ground leveled where they were.
Looks like they are being relocated to the planter nearby
This weekend is Gay Days and there are some specialty items available at select locations. This is at Tomorrowland Terrace.
Over in DCA the arches for the Mad T Party have been removed.
AP Days continue near Stage 12. The offerings are the same as my previous visit, buttons, water, coloring, and a photo op are the highlights.
A closer look at the button.
The Hollywood Tower Hotel sign and other facade elements have been removed from the Tower of Terror. Scaffolding is going up around the building as it begins the transformation to the new Guardians of the Galaxy attraction.
Where the sign and some other elements were attached.
The Bugs Land 60th photo op is gone.
APDays in Paradise Gardens featured a Run Disney table this week. Big discounts for the upcoming Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend events in November.
Stickers were also available for a new iPhone app.

Back to Disneyland. Town Square pumpkins…
The Village Haus was closed already for Halloween party prep (it was 4:18pm only and the party kicked off at 7pm).
At 7pm when the party started I made my way out of the park.
DCA was very crowded thanks to Disneyland now being closed to day guests. This is the end of the line for Smoke Jumpers. (Restroom lines were also out the door)
The line for Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta was out the door and down the walkway. I am at the end of it. Cast members were at the exits to guide you to the line. It looked worse than it was. It was under 15 minutes from this point until we were seated and eating.
Paradise Pier was very crowded. The standby area for World of Color was moved out and marked by tape. But with the near gridlock in the walkways, it was a mess to walk through.
5 minutes until World of Color. The version of the World of Color show from early 2015 has returned – minus the Brave segment.
The projections looked great tonight. The animation clips were really crisp. The projectors that were put in for World of Color – Celebrate! make a big difference. Other elements that were added for Celebrate! that were incorporated into the older version of the show were lights on California Screamin’ and air/smoke blasts in the viewing area.

A fall hidden Mickey on the walkway…
