PHOTO REPORT: Disneyland Resort 12/1/18 (Parking Garage, Downtown Disney Contruction, Cars Land Christmas, Disneyland Decor, ETC.)
Construction is moving along swiftly at the new parking structure next to Mickey & Friends. They are already working on the fifth floor.
Cement trucks and other construction trucks carrying supplies are constantly streaming into the work site.
Both Black Tap Craft Burgers and Beer and Ballast Point Brewing Co. are scheduled to open later this year, but we are quickly running out of time in 2018 and no opening date has been announced for either one. Construction is still ongoing, but Black Tap did have a job fair back in October, so that’s a good sign.
Napolini is nearing completion.
Unlike the rest of Disneyland Park, Fantasyland is only decorated to the bare minimum, with a few boughs framing the doorways to the Fantasyland dark rides.
However, holiday merchandise is at no shortage in Fantasyland. Castle Holiday Shoppe is stocked for all your holiday needs, as it is all year round.
Holiday sweaters are available throughout the parks.
The D-Tech station in Star Wars Launch Bay has new festive phone cases for the Star Wars fans in your life.
Over at Emporium there is tons of Ralph Breaks the Internet merchandise.
Including a Princess Playset with a hefty price tag.
The Dapper Dan’s are performing songs of the season in their festive holiday outfits.
Critter Country is home to Santa at Disneyland.
Redwood Creek Challenge Trail is home to Santa at Disney California Adventure.
Redwood Creek Challenge Trail is also home to other festive activities such as cookie decorating, Fly with the Reindeer, and a meet and greet with Chip and Dale.
On Buena Vista Street, you can mail letters to Santa….
and play Reindeer Games.
The Reindeer Games station will rotate games and be active through Christmas Eve. You get a stamp for each game you play. We played Vixen’s Milk and Cookies puzzle, in which you try to put together 3 gingerbread men within a certain time limit.
Mary Poppins merchandise was spotted over at Elias & Co.
To wrap up this photo report, here are some photos of Cars Land, decorated for Christmas.
Cars Land remains the most decorated area of DCA, with car-themed Christmas trees and decorations lining Route 66.
By far, my favorite decorations are the seasonal spoof movie posters across from Sarge’s Surplus Hut.
