Contributing photographer Jason of disneygeek.com sends us these photos from his trip to the parks on Friday, August 11, 2017.

Summer is quickly drawing to an end at the Disneyland Resort. Friday I met up with Laura and we enjoyed the the final day of the 2017 Disneyland Resort All-American College Band and caught up.

Starting off with a check of the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge construction from the Mickey and Friends Parking Structure. Here is a video overview.

The concrete building on the right of the Battle Escape Building has all the forms removed now from the walls.

First stop Buena Vista Street. Julius Katz and Sons no longer has pins, they moved next door to Atwater Ink and Paint. In that area now are figures and music boxes. The pins are in the front section closest to the street in Atwater.

Found a spot for the Main Street Electrical Parade out by "it's a small world." The parade runs through next weekend, August 20th. So this is likely my last viewing of it.
