PHOTO REPORT: Disneyland 3/9/18 (Goodbye Redhead, Trolley Tracks, Splash Mountain, Happy Birthday Indy, ETC.)

Our latest photo report brings us back to Disneyland Park to see ongoing refurbishments and more…

Right on Track

While the work wraps up on the Main Street trolley tracks, guests can take a photo in a stationary vehicle.

While the track looks great by itself, there are way too many styles of mismatched brick all over Main Street now.

This doesn’t look right to us.

The center of the street is still being worked on.

Love the two-finger points on the signage.

The Hub area is completed.

Not a great view from Carnation Cafe currently.

This poor guy has to look at a wall all day.

“it’s a small world open”

“it’s a small world” is open despite the presence of work walls.

The adjacent parade route is being modified.

The modified attraction poster on the walls.

This and That

The highest peaks of Batuu can be seen from Toontown.

“We named the trashcan Indiana”.

Disney has still not announced the closing date for Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland. It has already closed at Walt Disney World to remove the classic auction scene from the ride.

After selling noting but Star Wars items for the last several years, The Star Trader in Tomorrowland now has 1/3 of the store dedicated to the 2018 merchandise line.

We spotted a license plate celebrating Epcot’s opening in 1982 along the Tomorrowland Autopia.

It was so cold and rainy that no one wanted Dole Whip.

A display for the Lady and The Tramp Blu-Ray can now be found outside of The Emporium.

No trip is complete without a stop at the Bengal Barbecue.

I also acquired a Chocolate Nut Fudge Egg. It was pretty good, but I’m told the peanut butter version is better. Sadly, they weren’t out yet.

Making a Splash

Splash Mountain is down through April.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

Work continues on Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. For a better look from  the Rivers of America, check out our post from earlier this week. For an even better look, check out Disney’s aerial footage of the construction site.

Mouse-cellaneous

The Indiana Jones Adventure turned 23 years old last week.

SEVEN?!?

A series of ladies’ shirts featuring the Disney Afternoon shows on them have been released. Seem them all in our post featuring the entire line.

All references to Siemens were removed during the recent closure of “it’s a small world”.

The 50th anniversary sketch featuring the Redhead in the original auction scene is still available and you can even get it framed with the matching pin for $167.99 at Disneyana.

So I had to try the Rose Gold Strawberry Churro at the cart in Town Square…

I surprisingly enjoyed it quite a bit. It has an artificial strawberry flavor, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying it. No one is eating a churro for the nutritional value…

  • I agree , all the different bribk work looks messy, but ai’m sure it has something to do with visibility and tripping hazards. People are ditsy and like to sue Disney

  • “Decimated” is very much not the correct word. You might want to edit that sentence if you don’t want to imply that the store has been destroyed in order to accommodate those products.

    • ‘Decimate’ is a very specific word. Originally, it meant to kill 1 in 10 of a group as part of a team-building exercise (really!). In standard usage, it can mean both to significantly reduce the count of something, or to cause destruction. The original quote is gone already, so I don’t know how they used it in context.

  • They could blend Galaxy’s Edge a little better into the background of Rivers of America. They need a little more brown at least.
