Contributing photographer Jason of disneygeek.com sends us these photos from his trip to the parks on Friday, February 1, 2013.

I arrived at the Disneyland Resort just after lunch and opted to walk to the parks through Downtown Disney. Over at the Disneyland Hotel the walls that were around the end of the Fantasy Tower are all gone and the area cleaned up.

They are still working on the park area where the ice rink was.

Some work going on in Downtown Disney near ESPN Zone.

Looks like they are laying or replacing some piping/conduit maybe.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 2/01/13

A temporary stage set up closer to where the ice rink was due to the work going on where the stage usually is.

No real visible progress on the Fossil store.

Waiting to get into Disneyland. The lines were moving rather slowly this afternoon and were backed up beyond the Monorail beam.

The waits around 1:35pm, not bad at all with the longest posted being 25 minutes only.

A quick look over at the Fantasy Faire as it races toward its announced opening date of March 12th. Laura recently had the opportunity to go behind the walls so check her posting for unobstructed pictures or you can visit my full update to see my regular assortment of pictures.

This was the last weekend for the Salute to the Golden Horseshoe Revue as part of the Limited Time Magic. There were no tickets for later shows of the Revue but was able to walk right in on Standby for the 2:00pm show.

If you would like to see pictures and video be sure to check out my update from January 11th for an extensive look at the show.

This time around I just took a couple pictures and enjoyed the show.

They were working on the Mark Twain into the evening, you could hear the saws after dark as they redo the wood work.

Splash Mountain is down for its annual work.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 2/01/13

Went for a cruise aboard the Columbia. Here is a look toward Big Thunder. They have a lot of equipment/tools out for the project. No signs of work going on this afternoon though.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 2/01/13

Noticed a time lapse camera set up looking toward the mountain (just to the left of center frame here). Demo work has begun on Rainbow Ridge, in the background you can see the front is gone from one of the facades.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 2/01/13

Two of the three Fantasmic light/fountain platforms are being worked on. This is the center one.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 2/01/13

This is the one near the Tom Sawyer Island dock (the left most platform when looking at the stage).

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 2/01/13

Looking back.

A look down Route 66 this evening.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 2/01/13

Two of the three screens as you enter the Blue Sky Cellar had a short loop of Fantasy Faire work now, last visit they still had the old loops playing.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 2/01/13

A look at the new loop (I know the quality is terrible... but you can get the drift of what is being shown, the quality is my fault not with the capture).

Wonder if this video will be altered with Tony Baxter leaving WDI.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 2/01/13

These Never Tire benches looked new to me. There were three out by the Flying Tires viewing area.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 2/01/13

Caught World of Color, was in the yellow section I think (there was no real crowd so the far side was open to all).

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 2/01/13

Just noticed (guessing it changed a while ago) the reserved sections instead of saying preferred or a color now say the dining location on them.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 2/01/13

On the way out noticed they had encircled the tram parking area with large plastic barriers.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 2/01/13

Guess they do not want guests walking through there anymore.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 2/01/13

Hope you enjoyed this highlight tour of the Disneyland Resort. For additional photos and details from this trip you can check out the full Disneyland Update I posted on my site, http://disneygeek.com Also be sure to follow me on twitter @disneygeekcom for pictures from the parks.
