    Paid a visit to Ariel and friends. The queue moved quickly with only about a 10 minute wait. Then as we entered the first scene we stopped. A cast member ran back and forth a couple of times and after several minutes the ride resumed with no problem.
    Since were were stopped for so long I was able to see the full loop of Scuttle's introductions. Here is a video of the two minute sequence.

    A look at the new Casey Jr. popcorn bucket.
    Walked by the Get Your Ears On Dance Party
    9:15pm and it seems a majority of guests on Main Street USA were opting to sit and wait for Mickey's Mix Magic. Plenty of space and choices available just 15 min before show time.
  • Page Number: 69
    I opted for a spot down near the Cinema.
  • Page Number: 70
    On the way back to the car walked by the charging stations on the second floor. Here is a look at one.
  • Page Number: 71
    The rest of this picture set will take a look at the Disney Eggstravaganza 2019. It took me just under 6 hours to find all 36 eggs (plus I visited with friends, experienced a few attractions and ate during that time).
    Maps are $6.99 this year (up a dollar from last year) plus tax and no discounts. They are available at several locations in both parks and Downtown Disney. Each hunt is for 12 eggs and you can redeem for one prize at any point.
    On the left are the Disneyland prizes, the right some merchandise you can purchase.
  • Page Number: 72
    A closer look at the prizes.
    Time to start the hunt.. I will show a couple of pictures for each egg and the location listed on the map.

    This was one of the hardest to find for me. The map said it's a small world. So I walked out by the attraction then circled the mall area. Thanks to the parade coming I was not out in the street and kept missing this one on the corner.
  • Page Number: 80
    Another challenging one for me. This is listed as the Emporium and is in the Toy Store section.
