The construction walls at the Enchanted Tiki Room now stretch beyond the entrance

Pirates Restroom

Thee restrooms near Pirates of the Caribbean recently re-opened… yeah, we’re going in…

Pirates Restroom

They are beautiful and actually well-themed! Disney is back and focused on details, this is definite proof!

Some Halloween cups left over…

The walls on the second level of the Castle were taken down, but a new set has appeared at the bottom

Work continues on the Fantasyland Expansion, more on that later…

The Fantasyland Skyway building is almost history

There is some work happening on a nearby Fantasyland rooftop as well

Back to Skyway

Soon, a restroom and widened path will stand here…

“My home, what are you doing to my home! Where will I live!” I’m sure the duck will be fine…

The duck unhappily watches the demolition

Have tow wonder id the clock tower will remain as an homage…

Over to New Fantasyland! YAYYYYYYYY!

Work has picked up in the Beauty and the Beast area

What could possibly be going in that hole?

Some of the rock-work is still just a frame

The food cart that popped up late last year which we stated belonged to Maurice from Beauty and the Beast indeed does

His name now adorns it

The rock-work has a cape? MARVEL TIE-IN!!!

Prince Eric’s Castle takes shape outside of Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid

The big top of the Dumbo queue went up in a hurry… perhaps Storybook Circus will open before the rest of the expansion?

The canopy over what will be the Dumbo entrance

Something is up in the Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin queue

All of the decorations in this queue room have been gone for months

The “Delta Dreamflight” batteries are gone!

Club 626 is still rockin’

If you were interested in any of the artwork released at Disneyland’s 55th anniversary, some of it has made its way over to the Main Street Cinema

What will replace the Skyway? A restroom and a walkway? Doens't seem like a necesary demolition to me…

No one but me noticed the coke can on the dumbo tent structure?

I also don't believe those cups are left over as they are a newer design, maybe they decided to try it there and expand for Halloween?

Delta Dreamflight batteries? Was there an homage to the old attraction staring me in the face this hole time that I missed?
