    While walking to the parks saw the mule pushing a service platform along the beamway.
    Downtown Disney is hosting a chalk art festival this weekend. I had intended to visit later and got sidetracked. So not many pictures.. but here is a sample.

    Went for a spin on Toy Story which I had not been on in quite a while. Did ok, I was gold.
    They were raising the center section of the fountains while we went around.

    It looked like the Racers were down, no signs of Cars. Also Screamin went down while we were on the Wheel.
    It was a very windy morning and hazy.
    Some scaffolding up backstage at Disneyland.

    They were parking cars in the far lot, I still do not understand why those who show up early get stuck out there vs the garage. Parking here you have to walk to the parks through Downtown Disney.
    Not a good picture at all.. but they have installed a backdrop for a meet and greet in the Maliboomer Park area.

    The Wharf facade work looks to be complete.
    The Blue Sky Cellar is closed now. The Fantasy Faire banners are gone.
    Several weeks ago the Carthay Circle Restaurant started a new tour. This tour happens daily at 10:30am and is free. I was finally in the park in the morning and made a point to give it a try today.
  • Page Number: 10
    You do not need to sign up, just hang around the sign around 10:30 and a cast member will greet you and start the tour.
    Our host for the tour. Our group as about 10 guests. We started in the lobby and a history of the Carthay and some of the pictures on the wall.
    I am going to skip the details.. since I was taking pictures and not notes or video.. We then went into the main lounge.

    Great to look around with no one there.
    The carpet.
  • Page Number: 12
    A light
    This painting is a replica of the curtain the original Carthay had.

    We took the elevator upstairs (too many people to get a good picture).
    Made a quick peek into the Mens Salon where the light was pointed out.. same fixture that you will see at the Hollywood Tower Hotel.
    Back to the hallway that leads to the dining rooms.
  • Page Number: 14
    Entering the main dining room. I shot with the wide angle lens so no good pictures of the mural overhead.. this is probably the best.
    A look around the main dining room.
  • Page Number: 15
    Look closely at the table.. notice anything?
  • Page Number: 16
    Does this angle help? Can you make out what the wood has in it... a hidden Evil Queen from Snow White
    Looking up.
    The Kitchen.
  • Page Number: 17
    The room within the tower.. looking up.
    The table. You can reserve this room for your party.. there is a min. fee associated with it.
  • Page Number: 18
    The table has a fun hidden tribute.. the base is inspired by Snow Whites wishing well. (Yes I had to go down on the floor for the picture.. you know you would have too).
    On the wall a very early picture of Walt and Mickey and one of the last.
