Black Widow is on the move through Hollywood Land. She comes out a half dozen times a day for a Heroic Encounter. She walks/rides through the area then stops for a meet and greet. As the truck turned onto Hollywood Blvd she got on board to ride.

Here are some video clips of the event.

A marketplace is being set up in front of Stage 12. It looked just about ready to open.

Over at Disneyland the crane is still parked just past the exit to Big Thunder so no view of the trail today. But in the new guide maps the trail is not listed as closed...so the opening is close.

Jason @ disneygeek.com image from Friday, June 2, 2017

Parked on the far bank is another crane this one doing tree placement.

Jason @ disneygeek.com image from Friday, June 2, 2017

Some scaffolding remains up, the light colored spots are patches for the scaffolding that was there that have not been painted yet.

Jason @ disneygeek.com image from Friday, June 2, 2017

Quite a few trees are in the area now.

Looking through the fence.

Well my guess of a waterfall was wrong for the terraces...they are planting trees in them today.

Mickey and the Magical Map was just about to get underway so I found a seat and sat back to enjoy the show.

The permanent FastPass distribution area for the Matterhorn is now open. The machines each have a carved animal on them (the crate is the hardware for the system).

Back to Tomorrowland Terrace for a second set.

Remember Dreams Come True Fireworks were cancelled due to wind (this happens frequently). In its place they ran the opening and closing sequences without the pyro...so soundtrack, projections and spot lights. Here is some video of the alternate show. They skipped the E-Ticket in the sky section. Also no Tinkerbell.

The current park maps. Inisde the maps now indicate where Wi-Fi hotspots are throughout both parks.
