    DLR - 9/2/08 - Princesses, Loads of Construction Walls, & VERY Short Waits!

    So I went to the lovely Disneyland Resort yesterday, & boy is there a lot of stuff going on. I got to the Resort for DCA's opening at 10am, & went straight round to Toy Story Midway Mania. However the ride was closed, so I first did the Sun Wheel.




    Awesome new DCA maps


    Not a lot of entertainment going on


    The McDonalds logo is still on this billboard

    Then Toy Story Midway Mania re-opened, so I went on it.


    Mr. Potato Head was down

    Next up I went on Orange Stinger & Mulholland Madness, which were both walk-ons.


    The big McDonalds logo has been removed




    McDonalds logo still on the SS Rustworthy

    I then went round to Soarin' Over California to use my Fastpass.



    After eating a sandwich I brought from home at Taste Pilot's Grill, I headed round to PT Flea Market to check out some of the pins, & checked out the status of the Golden Vine Winery.


    The back of the chairs at Taste Pilot's Grill, perhaps from Hollywood & Dine?


    The Vineyard Room has already been removed from all Golden Vine Winery signs



    I then headed out of DCA & into Disneyland. I first went to the Emporium to buy some pins, & then had to go to First Aid for my brother. I then walked into Tomorrowland, & saw the area around Star Tours under construction walls.


    Awesome new Disneyland Park map!


    Halloween merchandise in the Emporium




    What a lovely term!





    I then went to ride Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters, which only had a 10 minute or so wait.



    Then I went onto Space Mountain, in the Stand By line, & I was amazed, cuz I didn't have to queue until I got to the loading area! And this was about 2pm!





    Then it was off to Autopia, which weirdly enough had a longer wait than both Buzz & Space, at about 25 minutes.



    Next up was Matterhorn, which had about a 20 minute line I would say.


    While in line, I saw Monorail Purple being towed out of the park

    Next up I headed around to Alice in Wonderland, & then Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin.


    New colors on the It's a Small World attraction sign



    I then split off from my parents, & got in line for the Princesses at the Princess Fantasy Faire. I was hoping to meet Ariel in her human form, but as I was in line, I heard her being announced as one of the three Princesses in the Royal Coronation Ceremony.




    Belle, my second favorite Princess, being escorted in as I got to the front of the line

    First up was Mulan.





    Belle was second.







    And Cinderella was third.







    I then headed round to New Orleans Square to meet up with my parents & brother.




    Disney executives inside Ariel's Grotto/Pixie Hollow




    You cant see it all that well in this picture, but there is some sort of image planted in the ground


    You should be able to see a fountain still running just above the construction wall






    The whole area from the French Market, past the New Orleans Square Railroad Station, & through to the Haunted Mansion is completely walled off to guest access!





    Next up, I headed over to DCA with my father to go see Golden Dreams one last time.



















    I then headed over to White Water Snacks for some grub.


    My little brother's new Build-a-Bear



    I then went into the Grand Californian store, Acorn Gifts & Goods, & picked up the new Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning DVD.







    After that I headed round to Marceline's Confectionery to pick up some pretzels, & then popped in World of Disney for a quick second.





    After that, I hopped on the Mickey & Friends Tram & called it a day.

    THE END!
    and now back to school tomorrow... ugh

    Great update. Thanks for posting all your photos! They get right to work once the summer is over don't they?

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Nice report, Luke...Thanks! Wow, Disneyland is beginning to look like a giant maze of walls

    This picture cracked me up...it looks like you got in trouble with Mulan, and she's lecturing you . But the next pictures, she looks happy with you again!

    Hey Luke at less that wasn't the Mulan that gave me a hard time last Thursday. I need to fine something of Mulan and put it on my shirt so the next time that Mulan see me she wouldn't give me a hard time. Good trip report but the only thing I like to say both Cinderella and Belle don't look right. They don't fit there characters to well.

    I had thought that about Belle, but she was pretty anyway. Cinderella looked the part fine though.
