Contributing photographer Jason of disneygeek.com sends us these photos from his trip to the parks on Friday, February 23, 2018.
A video overview of the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge construction site.
This visit more steel and wire mesh continues to be added to the park side of the site to cover the two large show buildings.
Steel wrapping around the Battle Escape Building now for rock work support.
The Mickey and Friends Tram stop reconfiguration is moving along. You can see where the two new stops will be, back to where the original two stops were.
The Pinocchio lot is now closed and demolition work has started.
A closer look. The light poles are down and some concrete removal has started.
All the landscaping is being removed. As well as the curb.
On the Chip and Dale level, the new tram route is starting to be marked off. In the distance you can see yellow indicating another stop.
World of Disney is now half closed. From the center doors to the right toward Starbucks is walled off for renovation. It is slated to be closed into July then the other half will be closed.
The Disney Home Store opened since my last visit.
Took a look inside the World of Disney. A new wall goes from floor to ceiling dividing the open portion from the renovation side.
Over to Disneyland. The walls are gone from Town Square unveiling the new track and brickwork for the streetcars.
The view from the train station. Walls still stretch along the straight part of the street.
Walls are now up on the spur line section leading backstage.
Moving down to ground level. Notice the popcorn cart in Town Square was not back yet.
The one walkway through the fence on the spur line.
The walls are down in the hub too.
Spring blooms already, even though the weather was winter today…high was just over 60 with a cold breeze.
Looking toward Tomorrowland.
The Partners statue in the hub.
Moving on to Adventureland. It was announced last week that Aladdin’s Oasis will be removed and it will become the Tropical Hideaway.
The Storybook Land Canal Boats have returned to service, Casey Jr is still closed.
Snow White and the Evil Queen were in Fantasyland.
Spring balloons are now available throughout the park featuring Thumper again.
From the Monorail you can see concrete has been poured for the parade route near it’s a small world.
In Disney California Adventure the Food and Wine Festival begins Friday (March 2). Marketplaces are now in place throughout the park.
The Black Panther has set up shop for a meet and greet in the lobby of Stage 17. A video clip of the Black Panther leaving the area.
Next stop the Pier to see how the Pixar Pier transformation is moving along.
Scaffolding now goes all the way up the main hill of the roller coaster.
The billboards are removed now.
The scream tubes on the coaster are being enclosed, here is a portion without scaffolding so you can see the enclosure.
Closed out my evening with Fantasmic! at Disneyland.
