To all who come to this happy place, welcome! Join us in taking a look at all the happenings at Disneyland Park!
Today in the Esplanade, we saw some people playing with their new droids.
Hey there, little guy!
When we entered the park today, the first thing we noticed was the long line for photos in front of the train station.
Main Street, U.S.A
The transportation on Main Street, U.S.A. was all running today, so we decided to hop on the Omnibus Double-Decker bus for a ride down the turn of the century.
Cruella de Vil was wandering through the crowds today.
Many people lined up on the curb around 1 pm to wait for the Christmas Fantasy Parade at 3:30 pm.
The crowds were about average on Main Street today.
Over near Tomorrowland, you can see the newly completed sidewalk as well as the remaining “french fry” rocks.
Initially, when the Tomorrowland walls came down, this patch of grass was accessible to all guests. Many people were seen lounging in the grass. There is now a gate up surrounding the area.
Over on the remaining walls, an image of the concept art for the new entrance of the land is presented.
Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters had quite the wait today. The queue wrapped around to the entrance of Tomorrowland.
While Main Street wasn’t that crowded, Tomorrowland was pretty packed.
Construction is still taking place on the walls next to Star Tours and Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters.
We hope to see scrims come down and have the work completed soon.
In the Tomorrowland Theater right now, you can catch a sneak peek of the new High School Musical: The Musical: The Series playing.
The wait for Hyperspace Mountain sat at 90 minutes.
A fourth machine was added to the new centralized FastPass touchpoint kiosks.
Figaro the cat seems to be broken, as his eyes no longer open. The bird next to him is fully functional, though.
Maybe he’s just taking one long cat nap?
The Matterhorn was down for about an hour today, but was back up and running on both sides by 2 pm.
Over near “it’s a small world”, the Disneyland monorail sat stalled for 20 minutes.
“it’s a small world” Holiday was a 70-minute wait around 2 pm.
Some fun Small World wreaths are hung around the attraction.
“Mickey and the Magical Map” remains a popular show.
See you later, Mick!
Over in Toontown, Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin was a 50-minute wait.
The Toontown hills remain absent in preparation for Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway.
It was pretty crowded in this area of the park.
If you’re planning a visit to this area, make sure you check to see what time it closes!
Rivers of America
There wasn’t too much going on in Frontierland, New Orleans Square, or Critter Country today, so we decided to hop on The Sailing Ship Columbia to look at the crowds.
People enjoyed the afternoon over on Tom Sawyer Island. This area is only accessible by taking a raft over to the middle of the river. Over in this area, you can search through pirate caves and trek over unique bridges.
This is the line to board the rafts to take you to Tom Sawyer Island.
As you can see, New Orleans Square was incredibly busy.
Walkways weren’t too bad, but still crowded.
Over in the jungle, the Jungle Cruise skippers have set up a little Christmas tree.
I now have some inspiration for my tree this year!
