Contributing photographer Jason of disneygeek.com sends us these photos from his trip to the parks on Friday, January 30, 2015. In this posting I am going to take a look at the ongoing projects around both parks. I will have a separate posting for a couple of the new offerings at Disney California Adventure that opened this past week (the Boudin Bakery Tour & Cinderella Sneak Peek). As always you can view my full pictures update on my site disneygeek.com.

The attraction closure sign is going to need to be expanded… it is almost full.

  1. I will be visiting Disneyland in March while I am in California for a wedding. Guess it will not be the best time to visit.

    Some projects will be wrapping up in March and there will probably be some type of Spring time/easter event going on. But the big projects will still be going on (Soarin, the Castle, Peter Pan, etc..) .

  2. Very disappointed that I will be visiting Disneyland for the first time in a few weeks and won’t even be able to see the castle. Not to mention all the closures. Thinking I should cancel my trip.
