    Very nice new 'animated' display window at World of Disney - a simulated view of California Adventure from the top of the Hollywood Tower Hotel.

    Yeah, I noticed those awesome new window displays when I was there last week. The one w/ the Glow With the Show ears is cool too.

    Thank you so much! I currently am fortunate enough to have a Nikon D7100. Takes good photos if you know how to handle it/limits/best settings and situations, etc - rest assured I've taken my fair share of truly crappy photos with it that I'd never post, as well

    Re: March 2014 photos/video and observations.

    Minor Disneyland show lighting improvements observed this past week when visiting:

    • On the Fantasyland side of the Matterhorn (facing Alice in Wonderland), the second abominable snowman has greatly improved lighting effect - instead of the constant flashing strobe, it starts off fully dark with just the eyes visible then steady, strong white light rises as you approach the creature, revealing it very clearly and visibly just as you are approaching/passing - the effect is it seems a lot closer to the bobsled and seeing it in harsh white light means details/form register a lot better even in brief seconds you glimpse it as you pass. Very impressed with this. The Tomorrowland side monster sadly remains lit by the inconsistent strobe of old and therefore a lot harder to see details. Hopefully they’ll upgrade the strobe to the more advanced lighting design on the other track soon.
    • Inside Snow White’s Scary Adventures, 2-3 of the scary trees in the forest scene also have much stronger, more noticeable lighting packages installed inside them - some of them still flicker weakly from within, as if to suggest fireflies or other natural source, but a couple have even, brighter yellow light that really strongly backlights the jagged ‘teeth’ and eyes. Liked that addition a lot, it looked fantastic.

    The '1764' tunnel that is one of a few stray remnants of Imagineer Eddie Sotto's concept of connecting the Haunted Mansion/Pirates thematically via details, and placeholder for a proposed walking tunnel 'under' the river from a HM crypt to caves of Tom Sawyer Island he also had in mind.

    Fantastic pics! Thank you for sharing. I've been dying to take a trip where I can savor the "little things." It's tough when you're usually trying to keep up with an energetic four-year-old.

    Re: March 2014 photos/video and observations.

    Some more foodstuffs from this trip:


    These garlic cheese twists are really addictive, available from the snack cart in the new Fantasyland 'princess' courtyard - quickly becoming my go-to Tiki Room viewing snack.




    Turkey on a pretzel bun, Carnation Cafe - the spiced ketchup for the fries it comes with is very good in particular.


    Tomorrowland textures.


    I hope the Boudin employees aren't subjected to the unfunny Colin Mochrie/Rosie video dialogue all day, and just piped out to the guest viewing area - they were cleaning up and shutting down when I happened through, obviously, but still stopped to wave and be seemingly genuinely friendly when noticed there were a few guests lurking - so excellent job, sourdough kitchen CM's!


    Rushin' River Outfitters.


    Was quite pleased to see this little sliver/hint of 1950's Disneyland living on - Davy Crockett would be proud.


    Sales station counter top, Rushin' River.
