It’s Tough To Be A Bug… Literally!

Bugs land sign DCA

Bug’s Land in Disney California Adventure has been in rough shape for weeks, even months. Rumors have it that most of A Bug’s Land will become the new Marvel area.

Tarps have been placed over the heavily damaged mural. Hopefully they are fixing it.

Pixar on the Pier

Paradise pier constru 21718

A lot of changes are approaching at full speed for the Disneyland Resort. With the opening date of Pixar Pier being June 23rd, that leaves less than 4 months left for Paradise Pier to make the conversion. That being said, not everything will be done on June 23rd, just the first phase.

The spires of Treasures in Paradise are gone, as they are from Ariel’s Grottos. The entire facade of the Grotto is gone as well, leaving a plain white facade over the once colorful entrance.

Toy Story Mania Line DCA 21718

The line for Midway Mania has backed up to here since most of the exterior queue is closed. Funny how this has happened on both coasts simultaneously as new lands rise around both attractions.

  1. I know. Why don’t you transform the sleeping beauty castle into Cinderella’s castle just like the castle at Walt Disney world in Florida and you can add Mickey’s Philharmagic to go with it.
