Disneyland reporter Conner Purzycki brings us back to the Disneyland Resort for our latest photo update, looking at both parks as well as Downtown Disney. Let’s jump right in!
Star Wars Land Construction
Construction continues on the Star Wars themed land for Disneyland Park, visible from the Mickey and Friends Parking Structure.
Tram Lane Reconfiguration
The tram route around the Mickey and Friends Parking Structure is currently being reconfigured.
World of Disney is open while the facade is being refurbished.
The space next door to Jamba Juice is currently vacant, rumored to be home to Sprinkles, which will open in November.
Naples has blocked off an area for needed outdoor seating for guests.
Some work happening at the former House of Blues space, rumored to be an west coast home to The Edison.
Some work also happening on the bridge area.
Still unsure what will happen to the space next door to this Starbucks.
Let’s take a ride aboard the Disneyland Monorail.
The Hollywood Tower Hotel sign is gone, visible from the Monorail.
Star Wars: Season of the Force Moves Out (For Now)
Even though Season of the Force is over, it should be returning in November, thus why all of the lighting and such was left up in Tomorrowland. Hyperspace Mountain will likely switch off with Ghost Galaxy until Star Wars land opens, so don’t expect to see regular Space Mountain anytime soon.
All of the Star Wars banners were changed over to generic Tomorrowland banners.
Some work is being done to the Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters FastPass area, which is also used for Star Tours FastPass.
A nifty, yet temporary, Tomorrowland sign replaces the one for the Season of the Force.
I’m honestly surprised that it isn’t flat.
Definitely prefer this to the 1998 signage.
This and That
Some work being done to the sidewalk on Main Street U.S.A.
Star Wars construction, as seen from Frontierland.
Work continues on the Rivers of America while its many attractions are closed.
The Columbia is getting ready to host the Pirates of the Caribbean in an updated Fantasmic!
A fangless, new-faced Mickey meets guests on Main Street.
The canon is missing…
Disney California Adventure
The old Millionaire soundstage now sits vacant, but has seen better days on its exterior.
After 6 years, the backlot stage is finally coming down.
It might actually be nice to see this area back to normal, as ugly as it is.
Hollywood Tower Hotel sign removed from Tower of Terror
As we reported last week, the Hollywood Tower Hotel sign is already gone from the Tower of Terror.
The attraction will close in January to become Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout.
To infinity and beyond!
A lot of guests are angry about this, personally, I still don’t think it actually matters, but to each his own.
