  1. I have to say, the re-paint of the Glendale-Hyperion Bridge was well done and worth the effort! The first paint job was all one color and flat – good enough to get it done for the opening of Buena Vista Street last year. Good to see that Disney isn’t done perfecting the park. It is touches like the repaint that shows me that on-going great care will be put into DCA!! I can not WAIT to see what Disney does with the rest of DCA one day (here’s looking at you Paradise Pier and Hollywoodland – among other areas)

  2. I’ll be checking out the new Fantasyland CM viewings this week. I hope the big Thunder Mountain yellow crane is out of view when it officially opens. That would ruin all the promo shots for sure.
    As for the Dapper Dans, I would much rather hear them do The Beach Boys. I think they would sound amazing recreating their harmonies.

    • Don’t worry too much about the crane in the promo shots, as a graphic designer myself I can assure you Photoshop is a wonderful thing ;)

  3. I just came back today after a nice 3-day stay at the parks. I loved both of the Limited Time Magic offerings, especially the Voices of Liberty. As a 25yo guy whose Disney fanaticism is still quite this, this was a surprisingly amazing offering.

    I also love that they brought back the “Remember…Dreams Come True” fireworks show. It was a great way to end off my last visit with my first ever annual pass.

    The one thing that really caught me by surprise was the Dapper Day, because I started to keep track of this blog and Disney Parks exactly one year ago, but I have not heard of this day until I walk into the park and realize how many of the guests were looking unusually Dapper. I would have loved to participated if I had known about it. Is there a calendar available of popular annual events that I should know about if I am to reach the next level of fandom?

    • I think that Dapper Day is another unofficial celebration much like Bat Day or Gay Days. Don’t think there is an unofficial calendar existing, but I could be wrong.

  4. I fail to see how fantasy fair is invading Main Street. I thought Main Street and the hub were two completely different things.

  5. Since Cast Members were just having a sneak peak at what the Fantasy Faire is about it was more of an educational tour of what will be there while being directed by Tour Guides. Cast Previews begin this weekend.

  6. Just a note – the weekday hours seem to have been transposed; the Disneyland site lists Mon-Fri as 10AM – 8PM (both parks).

    • Um, make that Mon-Thur.

  7. Thanks for the great update. But I have to disagree about the Dans – I see nothing cringe-worthy about the Dans singing popular music, as long as it’s in their barbershop quartet style. It makes for a very fun mash-up, and I think it will be very popular!
