First, some info from the current CM Guide....
Cafe Orleans is now scheduled to open on June 10th (instead of the 9th)
Pirates and the Blue Bayou are still listed as reopening on Monday, June 26th.
The Mad Hatter on Main Street is currently closed, and scheduled to reopen on June 30th.
The Fantasyland Camera Kiosk (near iasw) will be closed from June 5th thru the 15th.
June 24th has been added as a block-out date for all Main Entrance Admission Passes and Cast Member IDs at both theme parks.
Let me quote from the CM Guide...
BLOCKOUT DATE ADDED
On Saturday, June 24, DIsneyland Park will host invited Guests for the world premiere of Walt Disney Pictures 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest". The event will be held in New Orleans Square and will be limited to invited Guests only, including the cast, filmmakers, celebrities and media represenative from all over the world.
To support the event, Theme Park and location hours have been revised and plans have been developed to provide a seamless experience for our Resort Guests. Therefore, to ensure that our guests may enjoy the magic of the Resort, June 24 has been added as a blockout date for all Cast Member Main Entrance Admission Passes (silver, blue and green passes) and Disneyland Resort Cast Member IDs at both Disneyland Park and Disney's California Adventure Park.
Also, Annual Pass holders, ONLY the Premium AP's are valid for entry on June 24th, all other AP's are blocked out.

Also, let me add, I stopped by Disneyland this afternoon, and they removed the walls from the small area near the French Market, that some claimed was going to be a stage.
It looks like just a new staircase was added to the west end, that faces the Rivers of America, and a new end piece was added (basically a planter).
The staircase area might end up being used as a stage, but it LOOKS like the rest of the area......
And for the Jewel of Orleans fans, they just got in 50 new pieces of Jewelry today!!!
