Contributing photographer Jason of disneygeek.com sends us these photos from his trip to the parks on Friday, October 16, 2015.

It has been nearly a month since my last Disneyland visit due to a trip to Disneyland Paris and scheduling conflicts. This picture set includes a look at some of the changes and new additions at th Disneyland Resort.

The photo below is taken from the Mickey and Friends Parking Structure, they are removing asphalt and some trees in the Pinocchio parking lot area that is used for the trams. My understanding from internet rumor/reporting is they are relocating some support facilities here from backstage as part of the Star Wars project.

The windows at the tram stop now advertise Aladdin on Home Video and The Good Dinosaur coming to theaters in November.

The Cove Bar is expanding. The Meet and Greet has been removed and that area will be used for additional seating for the bar. The line for the bar is currently in front of the construction wall.

A dual purpose picture. The Halloween Mickey popcorn buckets are out at most stands around both parks. Also notice the Pop Secret logo is now on the sign as well as most of the carts. Has anyone tried the popcorn? Has it changed at all in terms of taste?
