Contributing photographer Jason of disneygeek.com sends us these photos from his trip to the parks on Friday, June 14, 2013.

It has been three weeks since my last visit to the Resort due to a trip to Alaska I was on. So here is a look at what was going on as summer gets underway as well as some of the ongoing projects.

The Disneyland Hotel has received a new sign at the entrance on Magic Way. Cast Members were still putting the finishing touches on the landscaping this afternoon.

In Downtown Disney there is an exhibit for the WiiU video game console.

Inside each cube you could try out the game.

While I was gone ticket prices increased. Parking also went up a dollar to $16 for a car.

Both parks received new guide map covers and ad pages. Here is a look at Disneyland's:

The Jamboree area has gone all American for the summer too with Woody's All-American Roundup.

The format of the area is much the same with some games, picture spots, coloring area, food, pins, and the stage.

The Billies performing the Battle of New Orleans.

For the finale the Toy Story gang joins the Billies.

Shortly after the Billies there was a short character show called Woodys Talent Roundup. Since there were no signs or postings most of the audience had disappeared before it started.

Today was Flag Day so I stopped for the nightly Flag Retreat.

In the Main Street Opera House Lobby the Disneyland Story section is behind curtains. Is a new exhibit coming or just some work on the current one?

At DCA, Dancing with Disney has returned to Hollywood Land, but closed at 5pm so I did not make it inside.

A safety chain has been added around the bikes at the Monsters U meet and greet since my last visit. I like the eyes on the poles.

The Racers turn one year old as does the rest of Cars Land and Buena Vista Street. Hard to believe it's been a year already.

Out in the Pier the flowers were in bloom.

The 300th Army Band getting ready to perform. They were at Downtown Disney to celebrate the Army's birthday today (#238). They started over 30 minutes late though - so much for punctuality. I thought it was poor no one announced the new start time. First up was a jazz group.

Next up was a group called the Classics (I did not stay around for the third portion of the band).

Return to DCA. Noticed they had the side door of the Carthay Circle open. This leads to the check in counter and then to the lounge.

For Father's Day there is an Incredibles Limited Time Magic event going on. From 10am to 6pm you can have your picture taken in front of this backdrop.

Stopped by the Mad T Party for a while. There are new songs in the set for the summer.

Walked through Cars Land.

Found a spot for World of Color which turned three this past week.

I did not catch it till it was too late, but there is a new act at the Mad T Party.. an aerialist. Maybe next trip...
