  • Page Number: 2
    The Downtown Disney sign is still under wraps.
    Wow.. the light pole closest to DCA is finally back.. I think its been a couple of years or at least it seems it.
    A closer look at the replaced light pole.

    Fences up around the center of the Esplanade.
    Finally a Fantasy in the Sky poster to replace the Magical one. (I say finally because the show has been running since early January).
    Stepping onto Main Street USA
  • Page Number: 4
    The annual egg-stravaganza kicked off today at both parks (plus Epcot in WDW).
    The way it works is you purchase your map and then set off to find the various eggs and match the character sticker to the location you find.
  • Page Number: 5
    Here is the kit you get.. a map, sticker, and then a prize egg. In this example it is Tinkerbell.
    You can redeem your map at any point and pick your prize. They have a queue set up near the parade gate on Main Street.
  • Page Number: 6
    Under each egg is a character. The one you pick is the one you get.
    A closer look at the Tinkerbell Egg
    The back side.

    There are six eggs. At Disneyland they did not have them out on display. But our friends at MouseSteps.com took this picture at Epcot. The prizes are the same on both coasts. (Thank you Denise for letting me use the picture). I am going to keep this picture set spoiler free. So if you would like to see the hidden eggs and their locations I will be posting a separate picture set showing all 24 eggs at Disneyland & DCA.
    Dale came running by while I was walking through Town Square.

    Disney California Adventure Wait times around 4:30pm

    The current assortment of Frozen Treats at carts around the park.
    Not sure why this one was closed so early.. it was still around 80 out.
  • Page Number: 71
    No real visible progress from this angle except the green on the end of the Soarin building
    The pool closest to Storytellers (guess that is the North one) is walled off at the Grand Californian for some work.

    Work continues on this store at Downtown Disney
    Looks like they split the space. No indication of what is going in on the left side. But the right has a Disney Vacation Club sign.
  • Page Number: 74
    One stand in this large area..
    Work continues very slowly on the fall protection at the Disneyland Hotel
  • Page Number: 75
    One area looks done.
    The Monorail slides were closed already for the evening. The pool was fairly crowded with guests enjoying the warm spring break weather.

    The Spring Break shirts
    Back to Disneyland
    The redemption line was much shorter than last year. It is only the first day but seems much smoother since they were encouraging guests throughout the day to pick up their prize vs waiting until the evening.

    Disneyland waits around 8:20pm
    A look at Sleeping Beauty Castle this evening
  • Page Number: 83
  • Page Number: 84
    Still no signage for the Standby Fantasmic area.. it is to the left.. but at least the barrier is moved so it is easier to enter the area.
    They taped off rows but guests were ignoring it.
    Looking down to the FastPass area plenty of space still and this was about 5 minutes to show time.
  • Page Number: 85
    Continuing up the walkway another FastPass area is virtually empty. I think they should open areas like this at show time for stand by guests.
    The view from a walkway that turned into standby viewing.
