A Proud Family Photo op has taken over the Lunar New Year photo spot on the former ESPN building.
Not a lot of visible progress from this angle on the demolition work. I saw pictures from the south side and they have started to tear apart the AMC portion of the building.
The former Starbucks has had some material stripped away. And would assume the interiors of all buildings have been cleared of anything useful.
The Disneyland Monorail is closed for a few weeks during the demolition work.
7:56am - The lines to enter Disneyland stretched beyond the Monorail.
No lines at the ticket booths now a days most of the time.
