DCA may have the big new ride, Guardians of the Galaxy, but all the buzz is across the Esplanade at Disneyland for the return of the railroad and river. Still, there’s quit a bit going on at Disney’s California Adventure. New foods, ride rumors, and a faltering festival.
Much thanks to PhotoMatt, Dsny Debbie and Scott Attula for their help with photos this week!
Five & Dime is a real treat. Have you taken the time to stop and watch them perform?
The former wine booth behind Schmoozies in the Hollywood Pictures Backlot now sells shaved ice. It’s pretty good too.
This past week was the first time Scott Attula was able to ride Guardians of the Galaxy. He said that while he’s still not a fan of the facade, the ride itself was lots of fun. He loved the different variations in the drop sequence and random show scenes.
Which do you prefer – Guardians tower by Day or night?
Another day vs. night. The Tivan symbol reflects differently at night.
If you want to get the best view of the Rocket animatronic, it’s actually better to be in the back of the room. If you get too close, you’ll just see the top of his head.
Elsewhere among the Summer of Heroes we can find Black Widow
Scott tried the Orange Fanta freeze and while it was refreshing, it was too sweet to finish.
We took a stroll through the newly refurbished Animation building. They mostly just replaced the carpets. But it's still a great space to relax and get out of the heat. And we were melting on Sunday when we took these photos.
Beat the heat
When it's hot, you look for ways to cool down. And there's no better way to do that at DCA than the Grizzly River Run.
It's hard to believe that by this time next year, this whole area will be rethemed to Pixar. But they did the same with Tower of Terror in just a few months, so we hope they can do a good job with this one too.
We can spy a few clues from the concept art released by Disney. There's a "Pixar Pier Theater" and a Bing Bong's Confectionery.
Disney discounts . . .
Star Wars Land Construction
We still can't bring ourselves to call it "Galaxy's Edge," but boy oh boy is it getting BIG!
The southern most portion of the larger show building will be a hangar, as shown in this concept art.
Around the Resort
The old colorful tiles are in the process of being removed from the Mickey and Friends parking structure. They were a slip and fall hazard
Build-A-Bear, Ridemakerz, and Chapel Hats are all closing soon so that Disney can use the space for more dining options.
