Contributing photographer Jason of disneygeek.com was in the Disneyland Resort recently, checking on the status of various construction projects around the parks. He also had his first look at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. He shares a set of photos from his wanderings with us here.

The new Pixar Pals Parking Structure is racing toward its completion date — the end of the month. The new tramway is poured and the new load area is nearing completion.

From my vantage point, I could check out the Marvel Project construction. You can see steel is rising up as the building and facade take shape.

I spent a good part of the rest of my day exploring Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge for the first time. Since there have been so many other posts on it, I will skip that for now, but will have more photos as I return to see how the new land develops.
