As Thanksgiving week begins, let’s take a quick stroll around Disneyland Resort. With many local schools already on break the resort was crowded on this Sunday evening. On a positive note; construction around Mickey & Friends Parking Structure continues to move quickly and we have new signs! The old ones were quite faded, then repainted, and now they have been replaced to match the signs near the Pixar Pals escalator.
Mickey & Friends Parking Construction
The Daisy Level is also finally open.
The art was finally updated, giving the character a more contemporary look. Personally, we loved the older style art, but understand the change.
New signage has been added to eliminate confusion coming off the Mickey side escalators.
A large hole in the scrim surrounding this leads us to assume we will be getting a giant Mickey shaped statue to match the Luxo ball near the Pixar side.
Disneyland Park Holiday Crowds
We knew it was going to happen. Disneyland is crowded!
We found some reprieve near Autopia.
We found the Sven sipper is now available at Red Rose Taverne. The best part is you can skip the lines and Mobile Order him.
APs will get their Red Rose Taverne Mobile Order pin with any order now. We enjoyed the hidden Mickey in this.
WonderGround had a few holiday items.
Holiday Stitch is $45.00
These are $64.99 each.
This box set of 8 notecards is available for $24.99.
This isn’t holiday but would make a great gift for any Disney snack lover. The gallery wrap version is $195 or you can get it unframed for $55.00.
Downtown Disney – “Let It Glow”
We strolled through Downtown Disney the day after the “Let It Glow” display went up and we were less than impressed with hundreds of UV neon trees that reminded us nothing of Frozen 2 or the holidays. So expectations were high that these plastic trees would look better at night. Some areas did look neat, but nothing that we would want to see again or head specifically to the parks to see. We were also disappointed to see that many of the overhead neon rings were not working and some of the UV lights were out, leaving a few trees dark.
The area near World of Disney is colorful and fun likely because the surrounding area is quite a bit darker than the rest of Downtown Disney.
Things start going wrong at the orange and blue section. Neon tubes and UV lights are out.
The pink and orange section is a bit more promising as we near Tortilla Jo’s.
We found more neon lights out.
The last chunk of trees in front of the old Rainforest Cafe include some presents underneath them. This was only part we found festive.
