Hey there, hi there, ho there! We headed down to the Disneyland Resort to visit some old friends and see what is going on today amid all the many construction projects and merchandise releases. So join us for this most recent photo report from both parks.
We started our day at Disneyland, where there’s almost as much traffic on the roads as there was on the freeway getting here.
Nearby in Critter Country, we took a slow stroll through the land to admire the design. In the hustle and bustle of park life, sometimes the beauty of Disneyland can be too easily overlooked. It’s nice to take a breath and slow down every now and again.
On Batuu, we found a little droid who is being used as a stove near the Creature Corner stall.
Noticing our interest, the shopkeeper made mention of that symbol that is on the pencil case. That is the same symbol found hanging above the Creature Stall itself.
This is the flag of the Amani tribe from Utapau, of which the shop proprietress, Bina, is a member. The shopkeeper told us that anywhere the flag is seen on Batuu means that area is under the protection of the Amani tribe. It is sometimes found flying out in the Resistance Forest along Savi’s Path, which is the walkway that runs from Black Spire Outpost through the wilds of the forest to the Rebel base. The protection of the Amani tribe extends to all off-worlders who travel here, making the Outpost a safe place for tourists like us.
We noticed the Amani tribe’s flag just around the corner, hidden underneath a sunshade. It’s always nice to have a bit of lore to enrich our travels.
