Stephen Thomas’ 5/8/09 Photo Report

We here at Disneyland News Today would like to welcome Stephen Thomas as our newest staff photographer! While Stephen won’t be visiting the Resort as much as some of our other photographers, his amazing pictures and video will indeed make up for that. Let’s now get to Stephen’s first photo report:

The state of the Astro Orbitor as of yesterday. They started putting some of the pieces back up today

Mickey’s Fun Wheel re-opened last week

The sunburst on California Screamin’

The fountains being installed for World of Color

Corn Dog Castle closes June 1st to be re-themed

A look at each of the Mickey’s Fun Wheel gondolas

Doesn’t look like the lights were on in the day yesterday

LEDs disguised as lightbulbs

Beautiful nighttime lighting on Mickey’s Fun Wheel!

Looks like they made the lighting on the sunburst a bit brighter

Finally a great HD video of the nighttime lighting on Mickey’s Fun Wheel (you can view the video in standard definition by clicking the “HD is on” button)

Thanks for your report Stephen, and welcome to the team!
