Contributing photographer Jason of disneygeek.com sends us these photos from his trip to the parks on Friday, May 25, 2018.
Started by checking in on the various projects around the parks. I have been MIA recently traveling to the Disney parks in Shanghai, Tokyo and Orlando. A video overview of the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge site from the Mickey and Friends Parking Structure
A closer look starting with the peaks on the left/north side.
A closer look at the crew on the roof.
This steel structure appears about the same too.

Pictures of the site. More forms have been assembled and are staged.
They have started to install the support columns. Here you can see a trench that has been dug and the first vertical columns being set up.
A new set of kiosks are forming a pop up store for World of Disney while part of it it closed for remodeling. It is called World of Disney Too.
On the way into the park today they were distributing Solo: A Star Wars Story buttons to mark opening day for the new film.
As I stepped onto Main Street USA the Omnibus pulled up, so I boarded for a trip to the hub.

Mobile Ordering is being rolled out at the Disneyland Resort. It is available at 15 locations in the two parks. Here is a look at the Tomorrowland Terrace pick up windows. Four of ten were set up for Mobile Order Pick Up.
Stopped by the Launch Bay to see if anything was going on for the launch of Solo. It was quiet inside with minimal waits for all four meet and greets.
A quick glance at the Pier work as I walked quickly to catch the Pixarmonic Orchestra set.
New Pixar Fest stickers at the Annual Passholder area…this set features Inside Out.
