Contributing photographer Jason of disneygeek.com sends us these photos from his trip to the parks on Friday, January 31, 2014.
A quick look at the Starbucks progress in Downtown Disney before heading to the parks.
First stop today, DCA.
Noticed the billboard in Condor Flats is back to normal. The Planes characters are gone.
The Redwood Creek area is still closed for work. Through the trees you could see some scaffolding and workers, but nothing clearly or interesting.
Goofy strolling out to conduct the Instant Concert in Paradise Bay
Only an hour wait for the Racers this afternoon.
Lightning cruising Route 66 on his way to the Cozy Cone.
The fountain at the Cozy Cone was not working correctly again. The water was coming up short so the wheel was not turning.
Route 66, the poles for the Christmas lights have been removed.
The photo spot near the backside of GRR has a Nikon sign now.
The Olaf chocolate art is gone and Let it Go is featured at Trolley Treats
No visible progress on Main Street, thanks to the scrim.
A Nikon picture spot sign.
Small World is closed for the removal of the holiday overlay. And this coming week they are going to be using it as a set for the upcoming Brad Bird Tomorrowland film. They are using it as a stand in for the 1964 World Fair. The entrance area is being transformed to match and large blue backdrops placed so they can add the correct background in post production. The filming is slated for the middle of next week. And the attraction is to reopen next weekend.
Looks like they are finally going to do some exterior work on the mountain and hopefully clean it too.
The sub lagoon looked about the same as it did two weeks ago, no real visible change.
Inside Innoventions walls are up where Captain America will be greeting guests. He is replacing the nano exhibit to the right when you enter (between Ironman and Asimo).
Sleeping Beauty Castle, the snow has all "melted" away.
The scaffolding from the masts of the Columbia has been removed as the project enters the final stretch.
A closer look at the Columbia.
Splash Mountain is closed for some work too.
New Orleans Square is still mostly walls and scaffolding.
From the train another perspective at the film preparations.
Acorn gifts in the Grand California now features Club 33 merchandise, available to members only. I found it odd to put this in the large display window.
A look at the World of Disney Windows. First up Cars Land.
Tower of Terror/Disney California Adventure World of Disney Window animation
World of Disney - Tomorrowland window
World of Disney - Fantasyland window
Main Street USA from the train station (Soundsational was just about to start that is why there is a crowd).
Hard Days Night a Tribute to the Beatles were performing on the Tomorrowland Terrace Stage this evening. Here are some pictures from their first two sets.
A couple video clips from the performances.
I closed out my evening with the Remember fireworks before heading home.
