A fond farewell from Dateline Disneyland!

It’s the final edition of Dateline Disneyland! We’ve got a short and sweet final photo update for you today as Disneyland continues through the warm summer season without much breaking news. Star Wars construction continues behind-the-scenes and Disney is covering up sight lines and holes in construction walls that guests have been using to sneak peeks at the massive project. Meanwhile, a couple of projects continue in Downtown Disney. We wrap up this week’s update with a thank you and farewell note.
