Summer is quickly drawing to an end at the Disneyland Resort. Friday I met up with Laura and we enjoyed the the final day of the 2017 Disneyland Resort All-American College Band and caught up.
Starting off with a check of the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge construction from the Mickey and Friends Parking Structure. Here is a video overview.
The concrete building on the right of the Battle Escape Building has all the forms removed now from the walls.
Panning left to the Battle Escape building.
In the distance the Millennium Falcon building.
Crews working on the roof and the exterior wall preparations on the Battle Escape building. On the roof the last section is being prepared for a concrete pour.
Rebar starting to bridge the gap and connect the concrete building to the wall on the right to close off the backstage area.
A steel support structure for the facade/rock work over the Millennium Falcon building.
First stop Buena Vista Street. Julius Katz and Sons no longer has pins, they moved next door to Atwater Ink and Paint. In that area now are figures and music boxes. The pins are in the front section closest to the street in Atwater.
Disneyland Railroad passing by the Rivers of America, as seen from the Mark Twain.
Behind the train you can see the steel that will be mountains in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
On the east side of the river you can see more of the exterior wall for the Battle Escape building and some of the steel for more facade/rock work.
A look through the fence into Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. The mound of dirt is gone.. but equipment parked in the line of sight today.
The 2017 All American-College Band got off to a rough start for their last day. They arrived for the first set and instead of introducing them the speakers started blaring noise..

Stopped by the Jungle Cruise since the wait was under 10 minutes.
Gathered in Town Square for the 5:15pm Flag Retreat Ceremony.
Next up a trip through the Tree House. Another view of the River Belle roof work.

Found a spot for the Main Street Electrical Parade out by “it’s a small world.” The parade runs through next weekend, August 20th. So this is likely my last viewing of it.
Here are several video clips from the Disneyland Main Street Electrical Parade.
