PHOTO REPORT: Disneyland Park 4/23/19 (Project Stardust Updates, Farewell to the Adventureland Sign, and Character Sightings)

We are more than midway through April at the Disneyland Resort. Although this past week was spring break for many local students, the parks were not as crazy as the crowds brought by spring break in late March and early April. There is still construction as far as the eye can see as progress continues on Project Stardust and we quickly near the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

Main Street U.S.A.

Construction continues on Main Street U.S.A. near the hub. Construction walls are still up outside of Plaza Inn and Jolly Holiday. Now the area where the donut stand lives is also behind construction walls.

The walls have been moved back in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle, exposing new brickwork and other details.

You can also get an up-close look at the new color scheme for the castle on the newly painted turrets.

There’s a new temporary sign in place at the entrance to Adventureland.

We managed to get a few last photos of the iconic Adventureland sign just before it was removed overnight.

Near the entrance to Adventureland, we were greeted by a momma duck and her ducklings.



Critter Country

Over in Critter Country, work on Pooh’s Corner has finally been completed.

Construction walls surround the Mickey fountain in the middle of Toontown. Note the spires of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge peeking out above the fountain.

Peeking through the construction walls shows that the fountain has been drained.

Galaxy’s Edge can also be seen looming behind Chip and Dale’s Treehouse.

A quick swing through Fantasyland gave us this delight.
