Hey there, hi there, ho there! We headed down to the Disneyland Resort to see everything that is going on while the weather remains warm and pleasant, and we want you to come along. Join us as we hit both parks in a grand circle tour.
Disney California Adventure
We began our day in DCA, and with the warm, sunny temperatures in Southern California right now, we could use some sunglasses. Luckily, Disneyland Resort has Magic Key Holders covered with these complimentary sunglasses for Magic Key Holder Celebration Month. At first, they were giving out white glasses with red logos, as seen above. Then when the stock ran low, they began giving out red glasses with white logos, as seen below.
Over in Hollywood Pictures Backlot, some refurbishments are going on. The Disney Theater and Gone Hollywood are both covered with construction walls protecting the front of the buildings.
Both the theater and shop are still open while their façades are being worked on.
Further down the block, the La Brea Carpets building is now uncovered after being behind construction walls, likely for the same treatment as the two buildings up the street.
In the Marvel area of Hollywood Pictures Backlot, the Backlot Premiere Shop is closed until February 18 for routine maintenance. But we noticed that the nearby Loki photo op, and all of the Disney+ Marvel show photo ops, have been removed.
Despite the COVID-19 numbers dropping and masks not being required outside any longer, the 1 p.m. park hopping limitation is still in place — much to the chagrin of nearly every park guest in this line.
The China Closet is now under scrim as its upper-level exterior is under refurbishment. The shop entrance is open while work is being done.
These four new phone cases are part of the releases for Magic Key Holder Celebration Month, and they are now available as pictured at Star Trader in Tomorrowland, or able to be personalized through MaDe kiosks in both parks. You can read all about it right here.
Up in Toontown, construction is flying along. The rolling hills of the new Toontown skyline are taking shape as they move across the top of the massive building that will house Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway.
The spire of the entrance to the El CapiTOON Theater will welcome guests to the attraction.
In Mickey’s neighborhood, the raised hills are complete across this stretch of the building, and the frontispiece is being covered in the white primer as well.
