    Why is it whichever park I plan to visit first has a line to enter... Disneyland is where I am heading..
    Across the way no wait at DCA right now.
    Still passing out free Monsters University buttons as you enter.

    Main Street is alive with activity as always in the afternoon.
    The crowd was not too bad.

    The Jolly Trolley has been removed from Toontown, hopefully for some touch up work and not forever.
    Minnie had a half hour wait this afternoon.
    The hills behind Minnies house could use some work.
  • Page Number: 6
    Temps were in the 80s and it was humid for Southern California.. so had to remember to drink plenty of water.
    One of the longer posted waits of the afternoon. Maybe because of the long air conditioned queue?
    Saw a couple of these signs scattered around and a lot of groups of kids that looked like dancers. No initial indication of what it was, but I found out later on...
  • Page Number: 7
    Waiting for Happy Hans and his son to start their set. Once they did I learned quickly the audio is not played out where i was.. I had to move near the Alice in Wonderland attraction and restrooms.
    Happy Hans and his son Erik were performing this week as part of the Limited Time Magic Promotion. Here is the first of a handful of video clips.

    The waits around 3:45pm
  • Page Number: 19
    Can you spot Happy Hans and his son?
    A closer view.
    Thought I would walk around and see if there were any better views of them. From near Snow Whites entrance it was not that good.
  • Page Number: 20

    One last picture over the roof tops of Fantasyland before heading to DCA.
    The Red Car was not stopping at the front of the park.
    The sign makes it obvious its TODAY.. larger font and all caps..
  • Page Number: 25
    The News Boys performing in Carthay Circle
    The waits around 4:10pm
  • Page Number: 26
    More yellow squares to lead you to Dancin with Disney.
    Inside still a light crowd.. so if you are looking for air conditioning, character interaction, and a place to let the kids run keep this in mind from 1-5pm daily.

    Tower was a walk on this afternoon.
    Empty cartons on Fliks Flyers

    Speaking of the Cozy Cone the fountain has returned to operation after what seems like several months of work.
    A video clip of it in action.
  • Page Number: 29
    A couple random Ornament Valley pictures.
    The line was posted at 90 minutes for the Racers and the extended queue was not set up even.
  • Page Number: 30
    Wow able to see the pavement on Cross Street.
  • Page Number: 31
    The fountains were up for the Instant Concert. The Pier seemed quiet this afternoon.
    The truck/jeep that was parked out near GRR is now gone. Wonder if it is gone for good or just work? Seems like it should be gone for good given how they have modified the props.
  • Page Number: 32
    Minnies Fly Girls Charter Airlines
  • Page Number: 33
    In the Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe on Buena Vista Street they now have some grab and go items in the coolers.

  • Page Number: 38
    The College Band performing at the Flag Retreat which was at 5pm instead of 6pm today.
    Stopped by the Round-up next. They moved the Rodeo Games signage to be near the food stand. Seems odd since the games stayed where they were to the left in this picture.
  • Page Number: 39
    The Billies were performing on the main stage
    Noticed a bar to open the gate now. This may have been there forever but it jumped out to me today.
  • Page Number: 40
    The Toy Story gang joins the Billies

    The Dance the Magic group was doing a pre-parade performance before the 6:30pm Soundsational parade.
    I was in Town Square then noticed the group kept on going...
  • Page Number: 45
    A series of video clips of the Dance the Magic! performance.
    So I relocated to the hub for a better picture. I managed to beat the front of the group down the street.
    They just kept on coming.. notice the bright green group in the back.
  • Page Number: 46
  • Page Number: 47
    The dancers ranged from age 7 and up.
  • Page Number: 48
    That green group is now at the end of the street and they still filled the rest of the street.
  • Page Number: 49
  • Page Number: 50
    You can finally see the end (the rope in the background).
  • Page Number: 51
    Following the dancers a parade of parents and supporters with cameras.
    Disney had several cameras along the route too, here is one on a pole.
    I pushed my way to Small World to see if there were any interesting shots out there but they were moving too fast and it was too crowded to get anything too interesting.
  • Page Number: 52
    Sleeping Beauty Castle this afternoon.
    A family of ducks out for a stroll.
    These three got separated due to the crowd and it took them a while to get across the walkway to join the others.
  • Page Number: 53
    Soundsational making its way up Main Street.
    The wait times around 6:50pm

    Well guess all caps TODAY does not mean all day today.. the Red Car was stopping at the front of the park now.
  • Page Number: 57
    Several other sites/blogs really like this mannequin in the Five and Dime window.. so thought I would include a picture... I have to agree he does not look happy and is kind of creepy.
    A look around the Five and Dime at the current props around the store.
