Contributing photographer Jason of disneygeek.com sends us these photos from his trip to the parks on Friday, March 2, 2012.

They are still working on one of the stairwells at the garage. The wind had ripped the mesh.

More scaffolding is down and Buena Vista Street is looking great.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

Another look at some of the Buena Vista Street facades.

Walls up around where the Red Car stop will be.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

Still no roof tiles on the Carthay.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

All the scaffolding and mesh is now down and you can see the iron work for the marquee.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12


Is that a hidden Mickey in the iron work (look right in the middle at the top).

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

Some details of the Elias and Company facade are now visible.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12


A look through the gap in the wall, the monorail bridge looks to be framed. No bricks yet around the Red Car rails.

Fillmore's shell has been installed.

Work continues on the Wharf bridge and tidal basin.

Touching up the rock work.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

The walls are down from the parade route work in front of the Little Mermaid.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

The work on the Paradise Pier shops looks to be done. What a difference a little wood siding and removal of the giant clown makes.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

They have altered the Fun Wheel exit area a bit. There is a new gate up between the non swinging and swinging gondolas and when you exit the non swinging one now you are directed up the ramp and to use the same gate as the swinging one to exit. This speeds up the boarding of the next group to the non swinging.

An overview of Cars Land.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

Most of the scaffolding is down, just one more story to go.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

The roof is going on Sarge's.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

As well as around the walkway from Fliks. You can barely see it from this angle/distance now.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

Looks like all the scaffolding is gone from around the radiator cap (wouldn't it be fun to walk the track like those two right now!)

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12


I kind of like it (Pacific Wharf bridge) with no sign up, the Cadillac Range looks great.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

A wood frame has been installed over the steel at the entrance to Cars Land.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

The Minnie's Fly Girls show was going on in Condor Flats.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

A wide shot of the area. As you can see it does not really impact traffic that much.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

Moving on.. work continues around GRR.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

Repainting going on, do not worry the shop remained open.

Plenty of painting projects are underway.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

Finally made it over to Disneyland. Some work going on with the seating/planters on Main Street.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

Due to the winds the tarps were up so we could see the progress of the work here.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

Coke Corner has re-opened.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

A look inside.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

The Matthorn work is progressing quickly. The scaffolding is already being taken down as the painting proceeds. The new color scheme looks much darker to me.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

Wait times around 1:50pm

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

Spring has arrived, or at least the plants and trees believe so.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

After sunset headed back to DCA. This week noticed all the street lights on the left were on.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

A look at the Midway shops after dark.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

A bright light on Tower of Terror made for an interesting picture.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

Turns out they were setting up for some filming in front.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

At ElecTRONica hey added some kinects units around the DJ area. I read they were using them to capture images and project on Monsters. I did not see this in the brief time I was there.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

The street in front of Award Wieners was cleared and set up for some disc games.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

There was a brief performance before the games.

Fantasmic! has returned, so I caught the 9pm show. Did you realize Fantasmic! turns 20 this year?

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 3/02/12

Since the Mark Twain is being worked on the characters were on the Island for the Finale. Here is a brief video clip of the finale to conclude this update.
