Contributing photographer Jason of disneygeek.com sends us these photos from his trip to the parks on Friday, April 11, 2014.
We start off on Main Street USA. The 20th Century Music Company on Main Street now sells very little music. Pins have taken over the store.
A look inside.
There is one small shelf of books.
And one wall of music and home video.
From April 10-20 there is an Egg-Stravaganza going on at both parks. Featuring Eggs-perience maps and an egg hunt. The maps are $4.95 plus tax and you go off to find the 12 eggs around the park then redeem your map for an egg to take home. This update is spoiler free in case you are planning a visit to search for the eggs. I posted a spoiler filled picture set if you want to see where all 24 eggs (12 from each park) are located.
Small World has reopened for a few weeks during the busy spring break season and to celebrate its 50th anniversary since opening on 4/22/1964 at the Worlds Fair in New York. Disney parks celebrated the occasion on Thursday 4/10 and Jeanine was there for AllEars.
Stopped by the Springtime Roundup at Big Thunder Ranch to check out the latest Egg Creations. Here are some of them - The Tweedles and Elsa.
Thought the Tiki Room egg was fun. Anna and Olaf to round out the Frozen collection.
Thought the cane for Lotso was a great touch.
Two of the artists at work.
Time for the Bunny Hop.
Roger Rabbit was part of the gang this week.
If you want to see more pictures and video of the Bunny Hop check out my last update.
The Big Thunder waits have returned to normal, at least this afternoon.
They were expecting a large crowd, the extended queue was set up.
Some special menu items at the Golden Horseshoe to mark the return of Big Thunder.
The Lone Ranger boot is still available.
Pirates was only a 15 minute wait, and the extended queue was ready but not needed right now.
Pizza Port has a new offering.
A slice of pizza, cookie, drink and art print for $30.00 plus tax.
A look at the pizza.
Not much visible progress in the sub lagoon.
Sure looks like they are planning on saving the existing ride path. Seems if they were going to remove it they would have by now.
A new spring issue of the Buena Vista Bugle is on news stands.
The DCA egg-stravaganza maps are in the children's section of Elias & Co.
The DCA map. Again I will not be posting pictures of the eggs in this photo update.
The possible prizes. With each map you get one egg.
Clarabelle's no longer offers the trolley sundae, instead it's a triple scope sundae served in a Mickey inspired sink.
The scaffolding on this side of the Wharf is down.
The side of the building facing the parade route is still being worked on.
Rushin' River now has personalized leather accessories and a sign to make sure you know.
Went for a cruise on Small World
In the gift shop a commemorative t-shirt was on sale, all proceeds went to UNICEF this weekend.
