The Battle Escape Show Building in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. More of the exterior wall has been added to the Battle Escape show building on the side that runs along Disneyland Drive.

I made my way over to Tomorrowland and encountered Jake the Droid exploring the area, rolling around. He is a prototype of a droid that you may find in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and Imagineers have been play-testing him in the park, as well as at the D23 Expo.
Jason @ disneygeek.com image from Friday, October 6, 2017

Jake rolled up to the store and encountered a sign saying droids are not allowed.

So he rolled off.

There were other signs up throughout Tomorrowland as part of the test.

The FastPass return for Toy Story was really backed up. It filled the queue and stretched out to the walkway. I looked at this and decided to skip my FastPass.
Jason @ disneygeek.com image from Friday, October 6, 2017
Paradise Pier was busy, as is normal on a Friday during Halloween time when Disneyland is closed for a party.
