WELCOME TO DISNEYLAND!
The Disneyland Resort marquees around the Resort are becoming "dreamy" -
We normally park in Timon, but around 4pm when we arrived, the full and closed, so we were directed to Mickey & Friends. We got sent all the way up to the top of the structure, Minnie's Level. The rest of the structure was packed. It was a busy, busy day at Disneyland.
A look at the wait board inside Disneyland - it seemed a bit off - Buzz Lightyear was at least a 30-minute wait as extended queue was nearly full all the way back to the Ariel's Grotto photo-op:
New kiosks providing a variety of international maps have been set up near the wait time board:
And at the entry tunnels, too:
They've also added them to the DCA information booth as well:
