    Arriving at the Downtown Disney stop for the Mickey and Friends tram. Monsters University poster (it has been up a while but do not remember posting a picture).
    Also a Lone Ranger one.
    Some guests buying tickets, but not too crazy this afternoon.
  • Page Number: 2
    First stop Disneyland.
    Main Street was alive with activity as usual with all the transportation in service.

    The waits around 1:10pm
    The second story queue for the Jungle Cruise was in use.
    A couple shirts I do not remember seeing before on the cart near the Haunted Mansion.
  • Page Number: 6
    Critter Country had quite a few guests, plus some characters, roaming around. But Pooh still only had a 5 minute wait. How I miss the Bears...
    No signs of activity this afternoon from the crane.
    A closer look at Big Thunder shows a hole cut into the mountain. Guessing they are doing some repair work to the facade.
  • Page Number: 7
    Rainbow Ridge has really taken shape. The plywood is up.
    A closer look toward the switch/backstage area of Big Thunder.
  • Page Number: 8

    The Mark Twain is still being worked on.
  • Page Number: 9
    The trees look so thin now along the Rivers of America.. I know they will grow back eventually.
  • Page Number: 10
    Spotted some new trees that have gone in.
    A closer look at some of the cut trees.
  • Page Number: 11
    The Columbia caused a minor backup on the river since the Canoes could not pass till we reached port.
    Here you can just barely make out some new track in the background.
    One last Big Thunder picture.
  • Page Number: 12
    Spring has arrived at the Big Thunder Ranch and Jamboree.

    The photo backdrop is decked out for Spring too.
    Cowgirl Minnie was roaming around for pictures.

  • Page Number: 15
  • Page Number: 16
    The coloring area. Nice and quiet this afternoon.
    They were cleaning up from a performing arts group.
  • Page Number: 17
    Cowboy Mickey was also out. If you are looking for quiet character photos try stopping by the Ranch. More times than not it is not crowded and some are roaming around.
    The pin cart was also quiet, just cast members roaming around.
  • Page Number: 18
    The snack area.
    A look around the stage area.
  • Page Number: 19
  • Page Number: 20
    Moving on to the BBQ area. Some of the signs along the walkway.
    It is now the Springtime Roundup.
  • Page Number: 21
    Surprised the cover was not up on the queue here.
    Also that they did not bring in an extra popcorn cart and place it near Dumbo to sell the new buckets.
    The closest cart is out in the Small World Mall I think.
  • Page Number: 22
    Carts have encircled the Information Kiosk.
    Less than two months till Mickey and the Magical Map premieres in the Fantasyland Theater.
    The lights look to be set up and it sounded like they were working on the set (you could hear saws, etc..)
  • Page Number: 23
    Stopped by Toontown. Noticed some missing screws on the light cover in the center of town.
    Still no Goofy Water...
    Walked back toward the hub by way of Tomorrowland, not much happening there, just guests everywhere. Here is a peaceful garden shot near the entrance.
  • Page Number: 24
    Noticed there was no stroller parking set up along the hub. So guess Fantasy Faire is holding its own ok now.
    An hour wait for the Royal Hall, and there looked to be plenty of queue space left too.
    Between shows Mr. Smythe and Mr. Jones were out for pictures.
  • Page Number: 25
    A wider shot of the new arch.
    The Dapper Dans of Disneyland performing on Main Street USA
    And the Straw Hatters out by the Firehouse
  • Page Number: 26
    One last look at Town Square and Main Street before heading over to DCA.
    At DCA the Spring Issue of the Buena Vista Bugle is on news stands. Be sure to pick up a copy if you are in the park, its a fun read!
    Here is a quick look at the paper.
  • Page Number: 27
  • Page Number: 28
    Some DCA waits around 3:10pm
    Oz is gone from the Backlot and the Muppets have returned to their theater.
    The movie posters at the exit still had Oz on them though.
  • Page Number: 29
    Random Stage 17 picture.
    Oops forgot to pay attention to the show times and of course Aladdin was letting out as I was heading through Sunset Blvd.
    Fastpasses long gone for the day and 65 minute wait. The Spring Break crowds do enjoy Tower.
  • Page Number: 30
    Out in Cars Land there is a Limited Time Magic offering, Cozy Cone Hats ($24.95) available at Sarges
    If you really want to go crazy buy both hats and you can make a game out of it.
  • Page Number: 31
    The current selection of specialty Cars Land hats.
    Mater Teeth.. I know they have been around for a long time.. but just thought I would throw the picture in. They are $5.95.
    A shirt for Stanleys

    A nice afternoon in Cars Land.
    Some random Ornament Valley pictures.
    I liked this one..
  • Page Number: 33
    DJ rolling out for a Dance Party.
    This set they just played music and danced (I walked by later and they were doing the mini show).
  • Page Number: 34
    Goofy walking out for an Instant Concert.
  • Page Number: 35
    Passed by Phineas and Ferb.
    The swings have returned and the line was using the extended queue underneath.
  • Page Number: 36
    A couple merchandise pictures as I walked around the Pier.
  • Page Number: 37
    I saw this line and first thought was wow Toy Story is backed up. As I continued on though the issue was the attraction was down so the queue was clear and this was the line waiting for them to reopen the queue.
    Screamin was also down.
  • Page Number: 38
    Walked through the Grand Californian, noticed they still have the plain carpet. Wonder if the other carpet is ever coming back.
    Walked through the Disneyland Hotel.
    Spring break! Life gaurds in warm clothes... the temps topped out about 70 today with a breeze. It was cooler by this point of the afternoon. The pools themselves had a fair number of guests in them.
  • Page Number: 39
    Noticed a sign up on the gift shop in the lobby now, not very big or interesting, but it does mark the entrance.
    The area where the ice rink was is all back to normal (it has been a while since I have walked out here).
    The work around the stage area is complete too.
  • Page Number: 40
    And a new stage structure is in place.
    Iron Man 3 banners at the AMC.
  • Page Number: 41
    Downtown Disney had a lot of guests roaming around.
    One of the kiosks was closed.
    Thought the sign was odd.. a new concept? It is going to just be new merchandise in the kiosk.
  • Page Number: 42
    The window ads at the Grand Californian on the way to Downtown Disney are looking more elaborate now a days.
    Hard to tell in the pictures but they are dimensional.
  • Page Number: 43
    World of Disney has Marvel merchandise by the entrance.
  • Page Number: 44
    These have been around for a while now but do not think I posted a picture of them. Park scents!
    Spring Break merchandise.
  • Page Number: 45
  • Page Number: 46
    Headed back to DCA. Along the way heard two tracks on the background loop that are long gone.. Honey I Shrunk the Audience and Golden Dreams.
    Random Carthay Circle picture.
  • Page Number: 47
    Walked back through Cars Land.
    This time by the Dance Party featured the mini show, meaning Flos girls lead talk/guide the audience more than just dancing.
    Passed by Five and Dime
  • Page Number: 48
    Due to the later sunsets the Mad T Party kicks off in the day light now.
  • Page Number: 49
    Returned to Disneyland for Mickeys Soundsational Parade
  • Page Number: 50
    Not sure what was going on here.. if they just decided to hang out in front of Star Traders, or if this was a sit in or what... but thought it odd.
    Elvis, Scot Bruce, was performing at Tomorrowland Terrace.
  • Page Number: 51
    Thought this was great. A duck circled the stage.. the band and Scot were both cracking up and working really hard to make it through the song. It started on the far side (the sub side) and walked behind the band and came back to the front)
    Then went down the steps.
    Some scaffolding up on the exterior of the Alice in Wonderland building. Looked like facade work.
  • Page Number: 52
    Walked through the Fantasy Faire.
  • Page Number: 53
    The cart was open past 7pm this evening.
    The waits around 7:50pm
    The new arch at night.
  • Page Number: 54
    Buena Vista Street. The Carthay with Mickey in front.
    The Mad T Party is more impressive at night. The lights make a big difference.

    Tower was up to an 80 minute wait now.
  • Page Number: 56
    More random Cars Land pictures.
  • Page Number: 57
    Stopped by Paradise Bay for the first two thirds of World of Color.
  • Page Number: 58
    Before finally seeing Remember (been trying to see it since it returned in January but between cancellations, fog, and other distractions I have missed it till tonight). I made it to Main Street with about a minute to spare, thanks to only four turn stiles being open to enter Disneyland.
