We’re now over a month into summer and it’s really heating up in Southern California. One of the best ways to enjoy the Disneyland Resort during these hot days is to get an early start before it heats up too much. We decided to spend the morning rope dropping Disney California Adventure, so we could hit up the rides and scope out new merchandise before the crowds and heat set in. Here’s how it went.

With how hot it’s been this week, Cast Members have put out a display of sunscreen and cooling towels outside of Los Feliz Five & Dime. And of course, they’re also advertising the new “The Little Mermaid” 30th Anniversary collection.

Inside the store, we spotted a new Disney Parks Diamond Castle Collection Limited Edition Ariel Doll, on sale for $129.99.

The Award Wieners seating area is still under refurbishment. It doesn’t appear that much has changed, but we can hear Cast Members at work behind the scrim.

In the meantime, tables are still set up at the Mickey’s PhilharMagic entrance.

FastPass Distribution is still near the queue for the Hyperion Theater, to the left when you’re walking towards the Guardians of the Galaxy attraction.

And the queue is still being rerouted around all the construction walls.

Both Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree and Radiator Springs Racers had shorter wait times than normal, a benefit to visiting in the morning. Guests could pretty much walk onto Mater’s attraction.

And the path by Radiator Springs Racers was nice and quiet today, too.

Forky fans will be happy to know that the Forky statue is still out on Pixar Pier. And PhotoPass is now stationed out in front of this new trash––we mean toy!

Knick’s Knacks had some cute artwork on display that we couldn’t get enough of. To be honest, this drawing of Carl and Ellie made us a little emotional.

But then this drawing of Buzz Lightyear as Mrs. Nesbit helped lift our spirits again.

As we made our way further down the Pier, we spotted a boat speeding through the water.

On a hot summer morning like this at Disney California Adventure, many guests are taking advantage of Grizzly River Run as a way to cool down.

And thankfully, the long line of guests waiting to ride Soarin’ Over California have misters to keep them cool, too.
