    Disneyland and California Adventure Details and Oddities: 2011

    Being a selection of obscure and detail-centric views, new things I noticed, from my last trip. This is merely a first small batch, more to come as desired and don't want to flood with the first post. Enjoy viewing and thanks for looking!






    Mr. Toad's Wild Ride side exterior




    A small presence still of the Country Bears behind the service counter at Hungry Bear


    Esmerelda's cabinet, Main Street




    Condor Flats area details


    Inside Rushin' River Outfitters, Grizzly Peak area




    Inside the bakery section of the California Zephyr train


    Blue Sky Cellar


    Animation Building in the zoetrope room




    Frontierland pin shop


    In the foliage on the far bank opposite Indiana Jones Adventure exit path

    Nice shots!

    I have always wondered why those gates were in front of the door/window on Mr. Toad's exterior.

    Thank you very much! I think it is since the front is more enclosed than Pan and Snow White, so they can open the inside doors on hot days but still keep guests from walking into where the cars are moving. That's my guess, anyway.

    Awesome! I just love the fine little details! These are the things that go un-noticed but give Disneyland its charm.

    Great photo's. My favorites are of the magic shop. You never see them posted in these forums.

    You would think there would be more, considering Disney is all about magic and doing the impossible.

    If you have any more of the magic shop, I would love to see them!

    My family and I will be going in May, and I will be sure to take lots of photos in there.

    Thank you kindly, and yes, the Magic Shop has some good opportunities. Sadly, not many photos inside however....I am quite fond of old illusionists and magicians, the spookshows and the like, so the Houdini stuff tends to draw my attention the most

    That they do, and it is what sets Disney apart, I think...the commitment to adding little quirky details and set dressing beyond just a surface layer of items on attractions.

    Gorgeous shots! Just when you think you've seen it all, there are always little details that get noticed, or photographed in a way that you see them again for the first time!

    Thanks!
