Contributing photographer Jason of disneygeek.com sends us these photos from his trip to the parks on Friday, August, 10, 2012.

Walked by the Disneyland Hotel and a fence and walls were going up along the Fantasy Tower. This is the walkway/driveway on the Downtown Disney side of the tower.

Surprised at the length of the line at Minnie's house in Toontown given the heat of the afternoon and no shade at all for it.

Out at the Jamboree the coloring area had a fair number of guests (plus some chipmunks) in it, but the rest of the area was empty for the most part.

The counters (not sure their official title) were out in full force. Seemed everywhere I went I saw cast members with stop watches, clickers, and clip boards recording the crowds and traffic flow. Guessing they are trying to better understand how things have changed now due to DCA.

Watched the opening of Soundsational.

Katie:

Saw the World of Color in July and was absolutely amazed by the light up mouse ears that go with the music. I didn't quite realize they were actually coordinated with the music until about half way through, but it was very cool!
