Disneyland continues to celebrate its big 60th Anniversary as the summer pushes forward. In both parks, work on new additions are underway. The extended refurbishment on Peter Pan’s Flight will wrap up on July 1, bringing major new enhancements to the classic Fantasyland dark ride. In Tomorrowland, work on Innoventions‘ major facelift progresses as the Tomorrowland Theatre goes dark following the run of the “Tomorrowland” movie sneak peek. Meanwhile, MARVEL’s Ant-Man is moving in at Disney California Adventure. There’s also plenty of new merchandise in both parks as well.

Refurbishment projects are still underway in Fantasyland and Tomorrowland, along with the installation of an all-new ride at Luigi’s Flying Tires in Cars Land.
Peter Pan’s Flight’s extended refurbishment and enhancement project is about two weeks from wrapping up now as it prepares to open July 1 with new special effects and re-worked scenes.
Meanwhile, Innoventions continues to get a big facelift behind construction walls as Disney works on still-unannounced changes to the fledgling Tomorrowland attraction.
Nearby, the Magic Eye Theater is once again closed now following the end of the “Tomorrowland” movie preview’s run. No word on if Captain EO will return or if the theater will remain dark until the next movie preview.
Over in Disney California Adventure, A Bug’s Life Theater is now closed to make way for upcoming sneak preview of MARVEL’s Ant-Man, which will open this weekend.
In Cars Land, work continues on the replacement attraction for Luigi’s Flying Tires.
