Even Stanley gets a Santa cap!
This and That
Work continues on the conversion of Tower of Terror into Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission Breakout.
While MagicBands are never coming, so many of these touch point readers have been installed around the resort. One has to be curious if they will find some way to utilize them in a new system.
While the show is being retooled, FROZEN: Live at the Hyperion is down to just two shows a day.
The Doctor Strange preview is currently running at the Sunset Showcase Theater, former home to MuppetVision 3-D.
An actual costume from the film is on display inside.
“Come with Me to Disneyland”

There is a massive crane parked outside of Pirates of the Caribbean…
It is boxed in a small fenced area, but it is really, really, really hard to miss.
Work continues on the Rivers of America and a whole new Fantasmic show.
The Columbia is getting ready for the Pirates of the Caribbean sequence.
Star Wars land off in the distance.
The borders off the land that will separate it from the rest of the park are already taking shape, but the same can not be said for anything else in the project.
We’re waiting too. This remote outpost planet is taking too long!
The Main Street Vehicles are decorated for the season.
Trams, Cars, and Security Checkpoints
Work continues on the new tram lanes.
Not only will the tram lanes be changing, but guests will also need to go through security before they enter the Downtown Disney area.
