    PHOTO UPDATE 3/11: Subs, Nemo Neon, TS Island, new Disney Gallery exhibit, +MORE!

    WELCOME TO DISNEYLAND

    The smoke loomed over Orange County due to the fire yesterday...






    TOM SAWYER ISLAND








    A Raft CM hung out at a dock incase any WDI folks needed to get across the river.








    A portion of the lower level of the Hungry Bear Restaurant has construction walls up, blocking off the access point where the Tom Sawyer raft docks for WDI and construction workers.


    The raft docked later in the day at the lower level of the Hungry Bear:


    The old Mine Train Thru Nature's Wonderland bridge area over by Big Thunder is still covered in camouflage netting:



    SOD MOUNTAIN
    Splash Mountain is getting new sod along with lots of other touch-up work all over its facade:







    INSPIRED BY DISNEYLAND:
    THE NEW EXHIBIT AT THE DISNEY GALLERY


    The new exhibit at the Disney Gallery is now open, Inspired by Disneyland. The first room features works by contemporary artists like Shag and Jody Daly, among others.






























    The room across the Gallery courtyard is now full of reproductions of old storybook artwork from books based on Walt Disney's classic animated films that are also showcased in Fantasyland. These books were previously available at The Storybook Store on Main Street, and highlighted key moments from the animated films in stylized adaptations.










    Lots and lots of amazing reproductions









    ...And on display behind the counter at the Disney Gallery is a new Walt Disney Classics figurine of Mary Poppins. When released next weekend, it will be $175 and is a limited edition of 3500.






    SKY HIGH, DEEP SEA
    A couple views of the Lagoon from the Monorail:










    NEMO NEON
    The neon portion of the Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage marquee was turned on last night, casting a really intriguing blue glow on that part of Tomorrowland. peoplemover1 said "it makes me feel like I'm underwater." - Indeed, the blue glow does. Very effective use of neon.







    Not all of the neon was working though... looks like some needs to be fixed already..



    THE SKYWAY LIGHTS UP
    The Fantasyland Skyway building was emitting a blue glow as well, and the old building in that dark corner was very prominent with all of the lighting on.








    DISNEYLAND AFTER DARK


    Some shots of the fireworks from Big Thunder.






















    That's it! Hope you enjoyed the update

    I Love how one of the firework shots illuminates BTM, and later on creates a silhouette. really brilliant shots there.

    Night shots are always tricky, and you captured many elements well.

    The entrance for Nemo is so simple but incredibly effective. Just compare that with the queue for Monster's Inc.!
    I'm literally a born Disney fan! I was born at Providence St. Joseph Med Center right across the street from Disney Studios in Burbank. The same hospital where Walt died.


    By the way my shirt in the pic says "I like big sharks and I cannot lie"

    just wait til it opens. the entrance is also its exit, as well as the exit for monorail. they'll run into each other.

    Disneyland does have its beauty at night. I remember watching the "Disneyland After Dark" show that was made in the early '60s. Even then, the park had its nighttime beauty. Disneyland is one of the few places that's still buzzing with activity after the sun's gone down. How many public places outside Las Vegas have a full line up of attractions running as late as midnight with fireworks, a parade, and showings of an immensely popular nighttime spectacular?


    Very nice pics!! Nemo is looking great. The gallery's exhibit has a lot of neat things to see. The vase showing stained glass style portraits of the princesses reminds me of the dream sequence at the beginning of the first Kingdom Hearts

    Nice camera MasterGracey! It is serving you well. Great shots over BTMRR.

    Thank everybody for the compliments...

    If you'd like any pictures in high-res for any reason, let me know I'd be more than happy to make them available

    I know, I know... I've been skimping on Midway pics. I'll try to get some the next time I'm there
