Contributing photographer Jason of disneygeek.com sends us these photos from his trip to the parks on Friday, October 10, 2014.
This weekend is the Annual CHOC Walk in the Park. Banners line Downtown Disney for the event.
Anna and Elsa have opened a Boutique at the former Studio 365 location since my last visit.
A quick walk through.
It appears all the elements of the original store are still there, just a Frozen make-over.
Plus some new Frozen artwork on the walls and a new color scheme
Big Hero 6 banners up near the AMC Theaters
Looks like they just redid the compass in the esplanade. It appears to be more concrete now, but a little hard to tell from the angle/distance/speed.
The Finding Nemo Submarines have returned to normal operation.
The ride experience seemed the same to me.
Only noticeable change was the colored sea plants that were replaced.
Inside the projections looked about the same to me. If they changed anything I missed it.
Here is a video clip of a portion of the attraction.
A video clip featuring a Monorail passing by, a sub cruising by, as well as the sea gulls.
The scaffolding is down from the Small World facade work.
Christmas light installation has begun on the facade.
A photo op for the Halloween party already set up and seemingly randomly placed in the middle of Toontown.
Stopped by the Big Thunder Ranch Carnival to check out the latest pumpkin creations. First up Oswald.
Ariel from the Little Mermaid
Baymax pumpkin accompanied by Hiro from Big Hero 6
The latest creation taking shape…Mr. Smee
Chip and Dale bumped into me.
The Mark Twain is still in dry dock.
The work on this bridge leading to the Pooh attraction has wrapped up.
The Laughing Stock Co is back inside the Golden Horseshoe.
More signs of Christmas… lights in the bushes near the Castle.
Safety railings have been installed along the walkway leading to the Castle since my last visit.
The workmanship of the installation was spotty. Here you can see it does not sit flush and the wall below was cracked.
A nightly event at the Big Thunder Ranch is the running of the goats as they head from the pen backstage. Here is a clip from Friday…it was more of a fast walk this evening instead of a run.
Mr Smee was finished and on display.
Monsters University dance party at the Tomorrowland Terrace was being set up while I ate.
More party preparations near Innoventions
The new First Aid and Wish Lounge facades are done.
The gate leads to the new walkway which will be a backstage bypass for Main Street. The other end will be by the parade gate near the Mad Hatter.
Coke Corner is under wraps for some renovation work. It is still open this is just facade work.
As is the Gibson Girl
Projection and lighting effects on the castle as the Halloween Party music played.
Looking toward Town Square.
I joined the large mass of guests heading to Disney California Adventure since Disneyland was now closed to regular guests. Almost every turnstile was set up as an entrance and the lines still stretched around the construction/center compass.
The stairs area of the winery were behind walls for some renovation work.
Halloween Cotton Candy (well the bag at least) for sale in Paradise Pier.
On the way out passed by the new Boutique.
The windows were a little easier to see after dark.
Surprised there were no lights on any of the signs.
Hope you enjoyed this highlight tour of the Disneyland Resort. For additional photos and details from this trip you can check out the full Disneyland Update I posted on my site, http://disneygeek.com Also be sure to follow me on twitter @disneygeekcom for pictures from the parks.
