    The deck of the Columbia were pleasant this trip. Not too crowded.
  • Page Number: 23
    A couple of clips from the Columbia. First up a train of the Disneyland Railroad passing by. Then over to the other side to catch the cabin. I do not remember hearing the singing coming from the cabin in quite a while (it probably has but I never noticed it).
    Scaffolding being prepared to go up on Big Thunder. As the track work wraps up the painting crews will be taking over.

    Would have thought they would save the fence till after the rock work.
    Another worker up on the track.
    Looks like they have paused the Small World Mall painting project during the spring break rush. No scaffolding up this week, but still three or four towers to go.
  • Page Number: 28
    About two months to go till the new show debuts.

    So will Big Thunder be done before the Goofy Water? This project seems to be moving at a Floria pace! Cannot believe how long it is taking to replace two drinking fountains.
  • Page Number: 29
    Goofys Backyard has reopened.
    Looks like they may have resurfaced or at least cleaned it.
    Some ducklings in the planter near the castle.

    As part of the Limited Time Magic promotion there was a Vinylmation Easter Egg Hunt going on this week.
    You buy the map for $4.95 (no discounts) and then go off to find the eggs. Once you are done you head to Elias & Co to redeem your prize.
    To redeem your prize you show them your map, they stamp it, then you pick an egg and get a Vinylmation keychain two pack.
  • Page Number: 33
    The eggs are scattered around the park. I did not buy a map, but I did go seek the eggs. Mickey at the Carthay Circle.
    Walked by the Red Car News Boys performance.
  • Page Number: 34
    Any idea what this asphalt patch is for in the Wharf (it looked new but may have been there for a long time and I just did not notice).
    In the Wharf Cafe there is Easter Bunny shaped bread this week.
  • Page Number: 35
    Noticed these new Red to the Rescue Firefighter hats in Cars Land ($24.95 each).

    Lightening pulling out to head to the Cozy Cone for pictures.

    Screamin was down.
  • Page Number: 39
    The swings looked to be back together. I believe they are slated to re-open this upcoming week.
    Mr. Potato Head was behind his curtain again or is it still from last week?

    Still some gardening work to do at Main Street station.
    A long line for a character on Main Street, I could not see who was down there.
    The potted plant is new, I think.
  • Page Number: 51
    The exterior of the Main Street Station looks great. Look at the ceiling above the queue.
    Noticed the lights have remained the same. Was curious if they were going to take this rehab as a chance to swap them out for LED lights.
  • Page Number: 52
  • Page Number: 53
    Looked like more trees have been taken out (but then again I think the last several trips have been at night so this could have been done a long time ago).
  • Page Number: 54
    Class of 2013 hats are out in several locations.
    Walked through the Fantasy Faire and thought this was interesting. A Princess was escorted over from the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and led right to the Royal Hall to meet the Disney Princesses. Is this an add on to a package? Or randomly selected guest?
  • Page Number: 55
    Only two princesses on hand this afternoon.
    If you walk by the Faire be sure to take a minute to look at the music box.
    The scaffolding around the arch at Coke Corner is gone. Now just awaiting the signage and lights.
  • Page Number: 56
    Did a pass through the Market House on my way to Town Square.

    While waiting to be let in for the Dave Smith presentation caught a little of Soundsational.
    They still had some wristbands for the 7pm presentation.
  • Page Number: 59
    The back of the sign about the event.
    They let us in the Opera House and scanned our passes then everyone assembled by the theater doors.
    Waiting for the presentation to being. They had a chair for Dave on stage and two displays set up to show his slides.
  • Page Number: 60
    Shortly after 5:00pm Dave was introduced by a Cast Member and took the stage.
    He sat down and began to show his pictures and talk.
  • Page Number: 61
    My view was not the best and I did not want to get in the way of other guests so here is one wide shot of the scene.
    Now some slides. Due to the refresh rate of the screens my pictures are pretty bad. For better pictures check out my D23 section and his presentation as part of the Destination D: Disneyland 55 event. This is a picture of the Disneyland Property.
    The castle under construction.
  • Page Number: 62
    Everyone know this attraction? Yes the Mad Tea Party. One child in the audience yelled out it was a hidden Mickey and Dave quickly responded that it sure does look like it, must have been the first one.

    Mickey and Minnie were arriving in Town Square for pictures when I stepped outside.
  • Page Number: 69
    Usually the Voices of Liberty only do one song outside then move inside. But due to the AP events they did an abbreviated set outside. There were a couple microphones set up so their voices could fill some of Town Square.
    A clip of the Voices of Liberty
    After their set headed back to DCA and decided to swing through Ghirardelli for some chocolate. The coffee/espresso machines seemed extremely loud tonight.
  • Page Number: 70
    Random picture of the Cozy Cones with the Tower of Terror looming in the background.
    There were a couple cast members on the roof of the firehouse. Of course they went out of site by the time I pulled the camera up to take a picture. Not sure what they were doing.
    Racers were posted at 105 minutes only. Earlier in the day it was 180.
  • Page Number: 71
    The Cozy Cones had some guests in the area, but not long lines.
    Are these queue markers new?
    The drink stand has returned to Bugs Land.

    The eggs do not light up at night or have lights on them. So if you wanted a more challenging quest you can do your egg hunt after dark.
    The light has been fixed on the Packard at Oswalds. Both were on this evening.
