Enchanted Tiki Room Update

Disneyland Enchanted Tiki Room Updates with Wheel Chair Access Ramp

Guests are enjoying the newly refurbished waiting area of the Enchanted Tiki Room. Earlier this month, a wheelchair access ramp was added to the left of the entrance. The Gods of the Garden also received a bit of a face lift and placement change.

Space Mountain Entrance Update

Disneyland Space Mountain Entrance Queue Fast Pass and Standby Wall Partition

A new partition now stands upstairs at the former FastPass/standby merge of Space Mountain. This serves to separate the FastPass line from the Standby line a while longer, with FastPass going down a hallway to the left now. Guests now merge into one line inside.

Jessie’s Critter Carousel is set to open in Early 2019 and progress is underway. Fun new walls are put in place, which are appropriately themed with various critters. If you take a look around as you walk the Pier, you can catch a slight glimpse of the construction behind the walls.

Ballast Point Construction Update

Disneyland Downtown Disney Ballast Point Brewery Construction Update Progress

Lastly, we have a photo update on the Ballast Point brewery coming to Downtown Disney. No opening date has been set yet, but it doesn’t look likely to open in time for the rumored October 2018 opening. As you can see, progress is being made to the upper deck, but the first floor of the brewery looks like it might need more work done.
