WELCOME TO DISNEYLAND!
The shiny new Monorail Blue continues test runs during park operating hours.
Work at Ariel's Grotto is already underway, removing the under-the-sea theming so Tinker Bell can move in.
Ads for the special-ticket Mickey's Trick-Or-Treat Party at Disney's California Adventure have been added at the exit turnstiles at both parks.
The Disney Showcase shop on Main Street has been converted into Disneyland park's Halloween headquarters.
