Walls going up near the circular structure. Looks like the forms are all in for the interior walls. Guessing concrete will be poured soon there if it has not been already.

Arriving at the parks. The annual Eggstravaganza Easter Egg hunt is underway. There are 36 eggs...12 in Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, and Downtown Disney. I spotted my first one as soon as I exited the tram. I will be doing some extended posts on my site with all the eggs.

Next stop Disneyland. Inside the Opera House Lobby in front of the Disneyland Map are several finalists in the Cast Member Environmentality Art Challenge. There were too many people to get a nice wide picture so here is a look at each sign and entry. Each team/department created an original piece of art using recycled items from the resort.

Out at the Big Thunder Trail some fence has been moved so you can see a little more clearly into the new walkway. Guessing it was moved so they can work on the new walkway. A tree has been brought in and is waiting to be planted.

The view as you approach Critter Country.

The lower level of the Hungry Bear was quiet today. The signs have been moved off the wall on the left to be along the new walkway. A wall up as they restore the area that was used as the temporary walkway entrance during construction.
