PHOTO REPORT: Disneyland 5/22/21 (Indiana Jones Standby Line, Average Crowds, New Compostable Waste Receptacles, and More)

Hey there, hi there, ho there! This weekend, we were back at Disneyland to check out the current queue situation over at Indiana Jones Adventure, the new Compostable Waste Receptacles, the Mickey and the Magical Map stage at Fantasyland Theater, and more!

Disneyland Harbor Entrance

I’ve been sticking with the Harbor Pedestrian Entrance when it comes to entering Disneyland Resort. The Mickey and Friends Parking Structure opens 30 minutes before the park opening. If you want to park there, I recommend waiting to come after the parks have been open for about 30 minutes.

The line on this side usually takes about 15-20 minutes.

Disneyland Main Street

Once on Main Street, U.S.A., we noticed Starbucks had quite the wait. The line extended to the Main Street Cinema.

Adventureland DL

First stop, Adventureland.

The Tiki Juice Bar remains closed, but new directional signage recommends guests go to The Tropical Hideaway. This is the only place you can purchase a Dole Whip at Disneyland currently.

Shrunken Ned DL

Checking in on Shrunken Ned, the “jungle’s only self-service witch doctor”.

You can visit him for your own personal diagnosis at South Seas Traders in Adventureland.

Indiana Jones Adventure has been testing a new virtual queue system over the past week. The Disneyland App will distribute virtual groups to guests who join the queue. Today, a standby line was available for a few hours in the morning and a few hours at night. It seems like it’s only utilized when very crowded.

The standby line stretched to New Orleans Square around 10am.

Frontierland DL

Frontierland is usually quiet as there isn’t too much to do except for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. I rarely see character meet and greets with Miguel over here now. Since the first week of the parks being open, there has been a significant decrease of characters around the park.

Mickeys Toontown 2021

“Every Joe loves Toontown!” Let’s head in.

Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway is currently under construction at Disneyland. Attraction artwork has now been added to the construction walls that went up in late April.

Rather than “Coming Soon,” Disney went with “Coming Toon!”

Over at Fantasyland Theater, some stage props from Mickey and the Magical Map were visible. Hopefully we see a return of live entertainment to Disneyland this summer.

Join us for a cup of tea at Mad Tea Party!

DL Restroom Signage

These have to be close to the top for best restroom signage in Disneyland.

You can spot these at the restroom behind Autopia.

Tomorrowland compost dl

We found a few of the new composting, recycling, and trash receptacles in Tomorrowland.

New Orleans Square DL

A new register has been placed between Pieces of Eight and Port Royal Curios and Curiosities in New Orleans Square.

The is helpful and helps lower long lines inside these quaint stores.

Haunted Mansion DL

The Haunted Mansion had a 45 minute wait around noon. The wait usually sits around 40 minutes for most of the day.

Davy Crockett's Explorer Canoes

Today would have been a beautiful day to hop on Davy Crockett’s Explorer Canoes. The attraction remains closed at Disneyland.

Splash Mountain DL

It’s been getting warmer in Anaheim! Splash Mountain can always help with that.

Star Wars Galaxy's Edge DL

To end off the day, we headed to a galaxy far far away. Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run was a 15 minute wait around 8pm.
