It might be a dreary month so far in Southern California, but the gloomy weather isn’t keeping anyone away from the Disneyland Resort. The crowd levels are going strong as we gear up for a busy May, with grad nite events and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opening day on the horizon. Here are the latest happenings at Disney California Adventure as we head further into May.

Buena Vista Street

Those dark storm clouds aren’t turning the guests away today. Right as we walk through the turnstiles and into Disney California Adventure, we’re met with quite a crowd of people.

If you’re not using the Disneyland App to check wait times for the attractions, you can still find them posted at the end of Buena Vista Street. Disneyland Park may have gotten rid of their attraction wait time board, but it’s still available at Disney California Adventure at the Guest Information stand.

Hollywood Land

Disney California Adventure Photo Report May 7 2019

Compared to the entrance of the park, Hollywood Land isn’t as busy as we expected. We were able to get FastPasses for Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout! for the morning, which doesn’t happen often. Before heading to the attraction, we spotted these adorable new Donald Duck Butt Headbands on display outside Mickey’s PhilharMagic. For only $27.99, we have a feeling this new headband will be a hit among guests at Disney California Adventure.

Back to Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout!, we spotted a new item in Tivan’s collection. Do you recognize this collection of eyeballs from the Captain Marvel film? These were the options presented to Nick Fury after Goose took one of his eyes.

Marvel Land Construction

And speaking of Marvel, construction is still underway at the new Marvel Land and there is a long way to go before it’s projected to open sometime in 2020.

Disney California Adventure Photo Report May 7 2019

Last week, blueprints for the upcoming Spider-Man attraction were leaked, giving us a look at what’s to come when the Superhero-themed land is complete.

The unnamed Spider-Man attraction will be webbing a home at the former “it’s tough to be a bug” theater in A Bug’s Land. From what we can see above the Stark Industries walls, it looks like they may be constructing the foundation of the attraction queue already.

Cars Land

Cars Land is fairly busy, as usual, with lots of guests flocking to Radiator Springs Racers.

Disney California Adventure Photo Report May 7 2019

Don’t forget to check out the newest addition to Cars Land, Serv-Ice over at Ramone’s House of Body Art. Even on a cloudy day such as this, you’ll enjoy sipping on any of the four new slush drinks available for purchase.

Pacific Wharf

Disney California Adventure Photo Report May 7 2019

Rita’s Baja Blenders underwent an exterior refurbishment throughout April. And we’re finally getting a look at the fresh exterior. The new paint job is vibrant, to say the least. While the bright orange and teal colors do suit the margarita-theme of this vendor, the colors don’t exactly blend with the duller color-scheme of the rest of Pacific Wharf.

Pixar Pier

Disney California Adventure Photo Report May 7 2019

Over at Knick’s Knacks on Pixar Pier, we spotted some new pins that guests are sure to love. You can take home Mama Imelda’s alebrije Pepita for $12.99.

And check out this cute, new Monster’s Inc. pin set for $24.99.

Further onto Pixar Pier, we spotted a bit of construction going on by Jessie’s Critter Carousel.

There are construction walls and scrim up along the backside of the attraction. We’re not exactly sure what changes are going on here, but we hope something fun will be unveiled shortly.

Speaking of something fun, progress continues at the Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind attraction. From the ground, we can spot the top of the newly-installed spinner base.

Last weekend, we posted some photos of what’s going on behind those construction walls, including the arrival of four boxed vehicles.

Paradise Gardens Park

And lastly, over at Paradise Gardens Park, The Little Mermaid merchandise has returned once again now that Food & Wine Festival has come to an end. However, it appears not everything from Food & Wine Festival has left. This merchandise display is left over from the Festival, where artwork from Wonderground Gallery was available for purchase. It appears this merchandise display area is here to stay, now that the decals from Food & Wine Festival have been removed from the cashier stand.
