    PHOTO UPDATE 10/22: Tomorrowland, Monkey in the Mansion, Monsters, Merch, +MORE

    This photo update is a bit late, but there isn't much new going on in the pictures... so I didn't rush to get them up. Just some new Ears, a couple shots of the Sub Lagoon, and behind the Monsters Inc refurb wall...

    Here we go

    WELCOME TO DISNEYLAND
    The Harbor marquee is out from it's covers. Darkbeer posted photos of this a while back already, but here's a shot from the car:


    The location for the Steamboat Willie collage is still behind it's curtain. For the most part, the area looks finished, I wonder what the hold-up is?






    TOMORROWLAND WORK PROGRESSES




    New stairs/ramps for the Monorail platform are coming along:




    ...And new lighting has been installed on the Tomorrowland Terrace stage:



    INSIDE THE SUB LAGOON








    MONSTERS INC REFURB WALL

    Took a peek over the construction wall to find big door props. I'm going to guess this area is gonig to become an eventual photo op area, but boy is it taking long for this photo op to come along?!





    MONKEY BRIDE!
    A new monkey bride has been added to the Haunted Mansion's attic, to the left of where the bride usually stands. Here's a short video clip of the new monkey



    NEW MERCH AND COLLECTIBLES
    New light-up Year of a Million Dreams ears, part of the Disney's DREAMS Collection. They're really nice looking, actually, even if they are totally obnoxious. Hopefully people will take advantage of that on/off switch and turn the dang things off inside of attractions.


    New Jack Skellington Sculpture is coming out soon:




    As well as a new Nightmare watch:


    And Olzewski's Pirates of the Caribbean sculpture is coming soon as well!





    ....Alright... that's it for now.

    Amazing Alliteration, Andy!

    Those two places under refurb walls - Main Street and Monsters Inc - have been giving me question marks too. I suppose all we can do in the meantime is take pics of it.

    I totally dig the lighting on the TT stage. Every time I pass by it I like it more and more, and that's saying something since every time I passed Club Buzz I despised it more and more.

    My first reaction to light-up ears is, I just know someone will have them on in the ballroom...

    And as for the monkey bride - leave it to Disney to hide something as peculiar as that.

    Great photos. Thanks for the update.
    Check out my new Disney Blog here. What it lacks in quality it makes up with... Well, nothing I guess.

    I saw a lot of people with the light up sparkly star ears on Sunday, and I loved them! I think it's clever, and too bad they're not giving THOSE out for the YOMD!

    I wish I oculd go to the signing!

    My great-uncle was an artist, and his name happened to be David Pacheco. This guy had to add in his middle initial for a while because f my uncle! I would love to be able to meet him and tell him that. Sometimes, it was confusing...

    Saw alot of the new ears too. Surprised me to see they light up. So much for the element of immersion on the rides.
    Had to look hard for that monkey, good eye Gracey.

    The ears are not much more distracting in dark rides like Haunted Mansion than the spinny Buzz and princess things that they've been selling for the past few years or the glow neckalces that they've been selling for decades.

    I'm addicted to Disneyland. Disneyland hobbies are expensive.

    With all this talk of "off the shelf" and "on the back-burner" it seems the only thing that DCA is really missing is the kitchen sink!

    True, but it's only fanning the flames.

    ...Then again, I suppose it won't be long until everyone will be sporting light-up shirts, so maybe this isn't such a big deal after all.
