Chuck Canzoneri’s 6/11/09 Photo Report

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

For our second of three photo reports for today, we go to Chuck Canzoneri’s trip on Thursday:

A new edition to the Esplanade, a giant inflated house promoting “Up”

Disney really took the time to get the small details right

The very memorable mailbox from the movie

Alice was out in the morning with the Disneyland Band

The White Rabbit finally got his clock face back!

A little secret regarding the Disneyland Band’s 11am show in front of the castle…

If you go to the Fantasyland side of the castle and wait…

…all kinds of characters walk by

I don’t usually see the characters getting on the fire truck

Just like in one of Shawn’s latest photo reports, both Casey Jr. trains were running!

These were found next to the Astro Orbiter, which was still closed on Thursday

Over to DCA… Chuck thought he’d get some character close-ups from the new Little Mermaid walls

Over at Ariel’s Grotto, the Princesses performed a little show very similar to what used to be at the Princess Fantasy Faire, where they teach you how to curtsey and bow

Thursday was the media preview for all new entertainment experiences part of Summer Nightastic. This was the line to get into the TLT Dance Club where Mitchel Musso from “Hannah Montana” was performing

Changes to the Tomorrowland Terrace stage include Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Men!

Here’s Mitchel Musso himself

Temporary stands were set up on Main Street for VIP fireworks viewing

A local radio station was on hand to cover the event

Some Cast Members were sporting these Fantasmic jackets

While there wasn’t an actual dragon at Thursday’s premiere performance, nor will there be for a few weeks, it still was quite a show with some great new enhancements

Thanks for the report Chuck!
