I usually post my Disneyland updates in the DLR forum, but I'm actually trying to finish a photo thread I started ... um...about a month ago (with any luck I'll post it tomorrow) so I thought I would try something different and post a quick update of some of the changes that took place since last night in Disneyland here in my photo blog. :) (As a disclaimer, I try not to do updates here as both Master Gracy and Darkbeer are already doing an outstanding job each week. Several things just caught my eye today, and I thought I would post them here.)

First of all, unless I am more unobservant than I previously thought, there are new decorations today above the DL gates. I don't believe they were there last night.

I can't wait to see what these look like at night. I'm assuming they will light up like the castle snow. At least, that's what I'm hoping.

Secondly, poinsettias have shown up in town square. I hope they survive the 90 degree temps this weekend...

Here's a few shots of the Tree that went up earlier this week...

And from this morning...

The back side of the castle had much added to it since last week. I don't remember seeing the icicles or the ice spires last year. I think the spires are exceptionally cool. :bow:

Out of curiosity, I went over to IASW to see if it might be open early, but it was still boarded up. I'm certainly no expert, but it seems that IASW could start a soft opening at any time. Training continued today...

And it looks fresh and ready to go...

Finally, I'm not sure who the guy in the center is, but he was explaining the new stroller policy to these businessmen as I walked by. I was wondering if they were from another Disney park. Hmmmm...

That's all for now. I'll try to get a few more up of DCA soon. :)
