Chris Lastrapes’ 10/9/09 Photo Report

WDWNT’s Chris Lastrapes was at the Disneyland Resort briefly on Friday, and he was kind enough to share some of his photos with us:

This promotion allows you to get a free child ticket to see “The Princess and the Frog” when an adult presents their paid admission ticket or Annual Pass at a select merchandise location. The child ticket will be valid only when an adult purchases an adult ticket to see the movie from December 11th through December 31st

The parks were really crowded on Friday. Disneyland actually closed to new guests at around 7 or 8pm!

Chris’ main goal was to ride Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy and Haunted Mansion Holiday, and he achieved his goal

The line for Haunted Mansion Holiday is always really long compared to the original version of the attraction

There were reasonably long lines pretty much everywhere in the park

The moat around Sleeping Beauty Castle has been drained for some work to be done

Casey Jr. Circus Train, along with Storybook Land, remain closed for refurbishment

The new Edelweiss Snacks near the Matterhorn

The temporary Villains meet ‘n greet area for Halloween

The stationary Jolly Trolley was missing from Toontown for a while, but it’s back now

Re-paving at the entrance to Tomorrowland seems to be complete

This is one of the many reasons why Star Tours II is coming in 2011

Construction continues on the new Taqueria Margarita Bar at Tortilla Jo’s in Downtown Disney

Thanks for your report Chris!
