The Battle Escape show building now appears to be enclosed, all the visible exterior panels are installed.
The last section of exterior siding has been added. Just what appears to be a service entrance is left uncovered.

The Star Wars Launch Bay has had a couple of updates since my last visit. The first is part of the large model that was on display at the D23 Expo has taken the place of Rey’s Speeder and BB-8 in the area right next to the video.
A closer look around the model.
A new Lego area has been added to one of the pods.
And a small retail location.
The Dark side had both Darth Vader and Kylo Ren available.
The two display cases when you first enter the Launch Bay feature some items from the Last Jedi film.
Walked out to the small world mall area to watch the 6:00pm Wintertime Enchantment. Unfortunately the projections did not come on and the lighting was not 100% correct either as the clock sequence merged into the Enchantment moment. Here is a video clip of the scene.
Snow did fall though.
Then a few minutes after the regular quarter hour projection show ran.
The Dapper Dans of Disneyland performing a couple Christmas songs in Town Square.

Back to Disneyland for the 7:30pm Wintertime Enchantment. A video clip from the Wintertime Enchantment Moment on Main Street USA.
Projections are used along Main Street USA.

Took in a showing of World of Color Season of Light from the Blue section.
I moved very quickly over to Disneyland and got caught up in a slow moving and long line to enter the park so I arrived on Main Street just as the lights went out for Believe in Holiday Magic. So I was in a less than ideal location.
The projectors are used throughout the show.
Here is a video of the finale to Believe in Holiday Magic and some of the snow fall from Main Street USA
