    9/19 updates

    Went to the park with some family today and noticed a few things. First off WOW it was empty. I'm usually only coming to LA during peak seasons and have never experienced a 5 minute wait for space mountain with fastpass turned off at noon. :P

    Second off, they seem to have ditched all of that Disney Parks merchandise. Now it all says Disneyland, even though it says that other tag line they want to promote, where dreams come true. But I do still think it's funny their product line crashed and burned.

    Thirdly, and come on... this is much bigger than the last one They took out the hidden mickey in the beginning of the pirates queue it practically looks like the back bush was just taken out entirely and mickey along with it, but that seems weird. either way, mickey's gone.

    Oh and ursula PoD float is broken again..hopefully just for the day.

    Yep, very true. I actually talked to a CM about it and he said that it was a guest who stole it during an evacuation last weekend and not a Imagineer or CM. I was trying to show it to JungleCruiseGal and PEZZLightyear and couldn't figure out why we couldn't see it for a while.

    Great report - thanks! What do you mean the Ursula float was broken? Was it just not in the parade at all, or the puppet didn't work, or...?

    So that means that they had the parade without an ursula float?

    I can't picture what the hidden mickey looked like in the bushes! Anyone have a picture of it pre-theft?

    Here are some pics from the day. Not of the hidden mickey sorry :P

    All pictures here

    Something I forgot to ask... They had frontierland's entrance blocked off and the river drained to do pipe work. Did something break?
