    PHOTO UPDATE 4/12: Pirate's Lair, Mania!, Subs, merch, 'First 50 Years' revisit,+MORE

    Just two days later, and I've got another update! Enjoy

    Feedback is greatly appreciated - and if you have any requests for my next update, let me know and I'll see what I can do.



    WELCOME TO DISNEYLAND




    The wind was a' blowin' today (later resulting in a cancelled fireworks show, despite the winds having settled down at ground level)


    Abominable Snowman noted this in his most recent update - but the Dentist office door has been repainted (I also posed a picture of it in the process of getting some TLC in my 4/5 Update)





    The Dapper Dans were performing inside the Main Street shops. Very cool.





    SUBMARINE VOYAGE
    Some hoses going up to the waterfalls...




    As many others have shared - Seagulls.




    The Lagoon after dark:







    PIRATE'S STUNT LAIR
    The Pirate's Lair seems to be kicking into high gear - more and more stuff is showing up on the front of the Island, and it looks like more and more work is being done...


    A new metal pole was installed on the front of the Island, with a wire going to the new Mast. All most likely for the new stunt show coming to the Island May 25.








    The new shed, cabin, whatever it is in Frontierland near the petting zoo is coming along nicely...





    WALLPAPER GALLERY
    New wallpaper and/or carpet was installed in the Disney Gallery master bedroom, thus explaining the recent closure. The room still smells like wallpaper glue.. or is that the new carpet? Don't know, but it sure looks good. The room's exhibit is essentially the same.





    The formal dining room is still closed, however.


    MIDWAY/TOY STORY MANIA! - AFTER DARK
    The work lights were on at the Toy Story Mania! construction site...





    NEW WOMEN'S APPAREL & OTHER MERCH
    To match the men's apparel featuring this design, theres a new women's polo:


    Detail:


    Theres a new line of embroidered floral shirts featuring different characters and different colors:


    And theres a new line of these shirts, too, featuring different sketched characters at the bottom. The shirts come in different colors depending on which character you choose. Here's the Tinkerbell one:




    And I thought this was interesting: Kingdom Couture/Vault 28 branded clothing is being sold in DCA now. Same prices; I think the pink shirt in the photo was $78. Ouch. The shirt is far from the camera to show location; this was in Treasures in Paradise in Paradise Pier.


    A cool new line of Mickey Mouse photo albums and scrapbooking materials has been released. This is in the back room of the Main Street Photo Supply shop.




    Photo Album:


    Inside the Photo Album:


    Small album:




    Scrapbook kit - stickers, pages, etc:



    REVISITING DISNEYLAND - THE FIRST 50 MAGICAL YEARS
    Some detail shots of the 50 First Magical Years exhibit...

































    THIS & THAT...
    The winds weren't kind to the lights in Paradise Pier:


    Interesting...




    Kids were climbing on the rocks in Ariel's Grotto... at the directions of their parents seeking a good photo. I wonder what they would have done if one of those kids had fallen into the water with King Triton. Definately not safe!


    New yellow/golden neon on the Monorail sign:


    I love the lighting over here!

    Great shots! Those are awesome!

    Quick Question: How did you get those pictures of Midway Mania construction?

    Awesome as always MG!!

    I love the 2nd picture! I hope that's how heaven is... "walk towards the light" and when you get there.... its Disneyland!! (except the picture shows it as DTD!) hahaa

    And for those interested in those Vault 28 shirts.... not worth the money!!! they are paper thin... they are like a see through sheet with a little tank underneath... I can see them getting torn to shreds on the first washing!!!
    I'm addicted and I don't care!!!

    Great pics!!

    I wonder... I there is a pirate show on the end of the island, then will the Mark Twain and Columbia have to be docked during the show? It seems to me that people would get upset if the ships moved past them, obstructing their view of the show. And if both ships are running, how do you stop both so that they don't interfere with the pirate show? There is only one dock.

    Great photos, it's fun to see the resort when you can't be there.

    Those are some great pics. It makes me want to travel back down there. So envious of the ones who can go anytime and annual pass holders.

    OK, I really need one of those tinkerbell tank tops for my daughters birthday in July! Where do I call to get one without driving 8 hours to the park. GREAT photos by the way!!! I love the way the photos and topics keep us posted on new gear at the stores.
    thanks again!

    I always tell kids and their parents when they climb on rocks and handrails that they might want to come down because the longest ride at Disneyland is the trip to the hospital.
