I’m back from a wonderful evening trip yesterday to the Disneyland Resort. Even though I visited both parks, this photo report only covers Mickey and Friends and Disney’s California Adventure. So let’s get to this photo report:
Some work going on at the Mickey and Friends Tram Station. The tram only loads on the right side at the moment
As I got into DCA, the Pixar Play Parade started, so here are some photos
The Ratatouile unit has finally returned to the parade
It’s a recipe for fun!
The old location of Cocina Cucamonga is now behind walls and will re-open sometime in September as an Asian eatery
Meanwhile, the new location has opened up
The restaurant looks very nice, a lot nicer than before
The updated menu
This sign was moved from the original location
And the main maque from the original location was moved the side of the new location. Weirdly enough, the old Lucky Fortune Cookery sign remains on the right. Maybe as a tribute?
World of Color construction
Just yesterday, the Games of the Boardwalk got new, Disney prizes!
These new prizes really makes it worth handing out the money to play the games
The Orange Stinger closes for its re-theme to the Silly Symphony Swings on July 14th, so I thought I’d take a final ride on the attraction as it is
The cast member even mentioned that the attraction is going away next week
Speaking of going away, Dinosaur Jack has been completely bulldozed
The removal of the Sunglass Shack makes for a nice view of the new Disney Vacation Club wing of the Grand Californian Hotel
The coffee cart has moved into the nice new area of Golden State Park
The new Cocina Cucamonga sign lit up at night
Now the thing I’ve been looking forward to seeing since it debuted last month, the updated Disney’s Electrical Parade
The new Tinker Bell unit is absolutely stunning, incredibly beautiful!
The lights look amazing!
The Casey Jr. Train looks more amazing than ever
The butterfly on this unit is new, and it actually flaps its wings
The whirly-bugs are just as fun as ever
The Cheshire Cat is different from before
He dissapears in a very cool way
The colors are a bit odd though. Not true to the movie
This caterpillar quite frankly looks very dated, and I think this should be removed from the very long Alice in Wonderland section
The Cinderella section is about the same as before
The clock tower looks really nice
The fountains look a little more believeable now
The spinning Tinker Bell on the top of the Peter Pan unit has been removed as she now leads the parade in full size
The skull at the front is new
The new LED lights really shine in the Snow White section
This unit has returned to the parade after being gone from it since it was at Disneyland
Also back is the Pinocchio section
The second Pinocchio unit
I’m very surprised they kept the cigars on the unit in this day and age
Elliot, still my favorite part of the parade
Elliott’s eyes are new
Elliott now “dissapears” in rather spectacular fashion, leaving just a few faint lights on
The sign on the To Honor America unit is new
The fireworks on this unit look really great
That concludes this photo report. Hope you all enjoyed it!
