Contributing photographer Jason of disneygeek.com sends us these photos from his trip to the parks on Saturday, April 14, 2012.

Let us start off the tour at California Adventure and Buena Vista Street, a look at the west side of Buena Vista Street from the Esplanade. It was a beautiful day - very different from the stormy, windy day on Friday!

Gutters are on but the down pipes are not connected yet. That may have been useful on Friday with all the rain we got.

Across the street there was a crew working on the building. Notice some of the roof is on, the windows are going in, and an awning ha been installed.

Scaffolding has returned to the tower of the Carthay. Best guess is some touchup/cleanup work.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 4/14/12

Noticed some barricades up near the stroller parking for Little Mermaid. Appears to be some work along the base of the building, betting it has to do with the rains.. sure looks it.

The painting of Screamin's queue is moving along.

Next stop for me was the Fun Wheel to check out Cars Land and see if anything was going on this morning. All was quiet.

Just one visible crew up on the roof of Flo's working on the neon.

Where the crew was working last week looks complete now.

The work on the Lion King parking lot looks done. They have tweaked the entrance flow. You now turn in from Disneyland Dr. and then make a left.

The purple bougainvillea near the winery was bright this morning...

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 4/14/12

Stopped by the Blue Sky Cellar Patio next to check out Cars Land. Hard to believe in just two months we will be able to walk through and experience this new land.

Stanley is uncovered this week.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 4/14/12

A look down Route 66

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 4/14/12

Now onto Hollywood Blvd. the Red Car cable work looks to be done for the most part in this area.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 4/14/12

There was a sign out front of the Animation Building listing the drawing classes for the day. Before you had to ask a cast member inide.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 4/14/12

Continuing down the street. The Elephants that once guarded the Backlot entrance have been removed.

Work on the facades near the old Candy Store continues.

The marquee on the Carthay Circle Theater looks to be just about done, ready for the lettering. Also a better new scaffolding.

I headed over to Disneyland next. Not much visible progress here, the work has shifted to the interior.

A random Big Thunder shot as I walked by.

A turtle hanging out along the Big Thunder trail.

Walked through the Fantasy Faire.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 4/14/12


Was walking by and heard the announcement for the Calling all Drummers show, so found a spot to watch. For those unfamiliar this show takes place several times over the course of the morning and features some of the drummers from the Soundsational parade in a little skit/performance.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 4/14/12

Noticed the Mickey Ears on the shoes..

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 4/14/12

Now a walk around the Matterhorn..

A closer look at the park area. Looks like the walkway is in now.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 4/14/12

Plenty of activity around the Matterhorn today.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 4/14/12


Stopped by Innoventions. I had not seen the new Honda display and contest that started several weeks ago.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 4/14/12

Strolled through Plaza Gardens which will go behind walls the end of the month to be transformed into the Princess Fantasy Faire opening winter 2013. Still sad to see this quiet area of the park go. Also seems odd to start a project in April with a winter opening vs doing it in the off season and having it ready for the busy holiday rush this year.

A black horse out near the village, took this picture from the Mark Twain.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 4/14/12

Once back ashore, stopped to see the Billy Hill and the Hillbillies.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 4/14/12


The gift cart at the exit to Haunted Mansion was not out today. This really helped traffic flow in the area.

Elvis, Scot Bruce, performing in Tomorrowland.

Only a couple more weekends of swing dancing in Plaza Gardens. Then the event moves to Downtown Disney during the construction.

ElecTRONica is wrapping up. The final night is Sunday (4/15).

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 4/14/12

The line for the End of the Line Club was long.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 4/14/12

The truck had no wait though.. guess the alcohol is much more popular than the food.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 4/14/12

One last walk through Flynn's Arcade.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 4/14/12

The final two crews performed this evening and the winner was to be crowned Sunday at the final of ElecTRONica.
