Contributing photographer Jason of disneygeek.com sends us these photos from his trip to the parks on Friday, May 30, 2014.
Monorail Blue passed by while at the tram stop then it stopped near the entrance to Disneyland for several minutes. It eventually started up again and made its way to Disneyland.
No lines to get into the parks right now. It was just after 1pm.
Today was a Grad Nite evening.
Because of Grad Nite they were closing Hollywood Land before the rest of the park.
Walking up Buena Vista Street
Some new Soarin' Merchandise has hit store shelves. A new t-shirt - $24.95.
Grizzly River Run is closed still (scheduled to reopen June 19th)
Stopped by the Little Mermaid, Ariel's Undersea Adventure, since it was a walk on. Here is a full ride recording (you can call it the extended edition since we stopped twice).
A look out to Paradise Pier
Sligo Rags performing at the Paradise Garden Bandstand
This past week the Operation: Playtime! - Featuring the Green Army Men performed their 10,000th show.
Mariachi Divas performing in the Pacific Wharf area
Still working in the Wharf area.
Entering Cars Land from the Wharf.
My timing this year for the cactus blooming, I am either a couple days too early or too late. Last year I seemed to hit quite a few in bloom.
Mater at the Cozy Cone
Looking up Route 66 in Cars Land
There was a back-up at the Tower of Terror FastPass return line.
Some treats in Trolley Treats
Tinker Bell is Patriotic for the summer.
Some relatively new World of Color merchandise in Los Feliz
Time to visit Disneyland. Noticed one of the light units was up, it appeared to be stuck and stayed up all day/evening.
Main Street USA
In Tomorrowland. The guest relations kiosk has moved...
Across the way and into a corner. Maybe to get out of the sun?
Space Mountain is closed until July. No signs of work on the exterior.
A check of Alice in Wonderland from the ground as work continues on the exterior track.
Preparations for the underside cover.
Roger Rabbit was out again at the Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree Springtime Roundup and no wait at all when I walked by.
A family of geese along the Big Thunder Trail
Work continues on the New Orleans Square rooftops.
Sleeping Beauty Castle
Mickey and the Magical Map in the Fantasyland Theatre
Time to check in on Alice in Wonderland work. Looks like they poured the concrete for the new, extended, walkway.
Decided to catch Soundsational
The Storm Trooper mugs are available at Tomorrowland Terrace
About 80 minutes until showtime and the Rivers of America waterfront has a good crowd for Fantasmic!
Back in DCA Grad Nite had started to take over the park. Dance areas were being set up.
Lightning rolling along Route 66
Another Dance area in the Wharf
Went for a second trip under the sea since some of the group had not ridden it since it reopened.
A posted wait of 105 minutes for Tower of Terror, thanks to Grad Nite
The Mad T Party was also going to be used. Interesting they had a DJ stand on the dance floor and not using the main stage location.
The Mad T Party Band
Closing out the evening with Magical from Buena Vista Street.
A Mickey Balloon found its way into my frame, dead center, for the finale.
Traffic backed up on Disneyland Drive.
Magic Way was closed and all cars coming into Downtown Disney were being directed down the street. Guessing the Simba lot.
