The holidays are coming (yes I know what date it is, it’s located right next to this text in fact) to Disneyland, meanwhile, work continues on removing the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and adding the Star Wars themed land to Disneyland Park. Let’s check it all out in our latest photo report from Conner Purzycki.
Star Wars Land Construction
Construction continues on the Star Wars themed land for Disneyland Park.
Above is one of the tunnels that will lead guests into the remote outpost.
Some Imagineers were on the site yesterday, gaping into the giant whole excavated for the “Battle with the First Order” attraction, reportedly the single largest E-Ticket ride Disney has ever created.
The former Valet Parking area is now open to self parking.
Curl Surf and what we expect to be Sprinkles will be going between Sunglass Hut and Jamba Juice.
The facade work on the World of Disney store is finally complete.
The windows were already updated for the holidays (yet don’t reflect the changes to the Tower of Terror).
The Holidays come to Disneyland
It isn’t even Halloween yet, but Sleeping Beauty Castle is already decked for the holiday season.
The last of the Diamond Celebration decorations are finally gone, now replaced with snow-covered towers.
Work continues on Tom Sawyer Island to prepare for Fantasmic! 2.0 next summer.
A scrim covers work on the new riverbank to hide Star Wars land.
New Orleans Square
Christmas decorations are already up in New Orleans Square as well.
This and That
Moana merchandise was spotted in Frontierland.
“it’s a small world” is now closed for its annual holiday makeover.
The majority of the facade work in Toontown is complete and I would dare say that Cartoon Spin has never looked better.
Yes, it is Christmas in Toontown already as well.
The 2016 Holiday merchandise is out in full force already. We have an entirely separate photo report where you can check out most of the items new for this year.
The 2017 attraction poster calendar is now available on both coasts.
Rogue Oen merchandise is readily available as well.
Some strange new sewer cap shirts are available around the Resort.
Disney Showcase on Main Street U.S.A. has become s full-fledged Christmas store.
Disney California Adventure
Disney Junior Live on Stage is now presented by Pull-Ups.
Work continues to fix the damage of 6 years worth of dance parties in the backlot area.
Twilight Zone Tower of Terror Removal
I’m still waiting for a “Yes, We’re Still Open” banner like in the movie Clerks to show up at the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror as the conversion into Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout continues while the ride is still functioning.
A Bug’s Land getting the holiday treatment, while Tower of Terror is getting a whole different kind of treatment…
It’s been out for a bit, but the relatively new line of Grizzly River Run merchandise is pretty terrific.
