    Photo Update 1/11: Transitions, Tink up front, New Railing on Dream Suite

    Edit: So far, this photo update is in four parts as follows:

    Part I: The transition of the Mickey Floral at the entrance and Dream Suite progress. (See below)

    Part II: Before the transition: A look Back at December
    (Click here for Part II)

    Part III: Before the transition Pt II: More December
    (Click here for Part III)


    Part IV: Transitions: Includes the Haunted Mansion, the California Sign and Main Street.
    (Click here for Part IV)


    Part I:


    As it has been awhile since I've posted an update, I thought I would focus on the transition from the holiday decor of the past few months back to normal Disneyland. As it has been a few months since the park has been without pumpkins, lights, and trees, it's always a bit of a shock to walk in after the second week of January to find everything pretty much back the way it was in September.

    To begin with, I thought I would show a bit of the transition from the Christmas Mickey Floral at the entrance area to the new floral landscaping that arrived this week.

    Here is the Mickey Floral as it looked a couple weeks ago:






    Here is the work that was frantically being done last Monday:





    As I'm a bit taller than most, I just had to grab a shot over the fence. : I must say that I was surprised that ALL of the landscaping comes out including the grass:




    And here is what greeted me this morning:



    And WHO is gracing the area just above Mickey's ear?




    I must say Tinkerbell is a HUGE improvement over the Dreams yuckiness that went in there last Spring. I really think this new design looks wonderful and Tink nicely accents the yellows in the "pixie dust" of the floral design:






    I'm not sure how new this next item is, but I did not notice it on Monday, so I'm thinking the work must have taken place since then. For all of you who were concerned that the stairs in front of the Dream Suite were going away, it appears they are coming back, but the railing will be new and improved.

    Here's what it looks like so far:
















    Quite a bit of work was also taking place on the roof:

    I agree that the new "Tink" design is better than the Dreams.

    Nice pics. Thanks for sharing!

    Great pic! as always!

    I'v heard that the Mickey floral has lights in it, it looks like its true when you look at the close up of Tink picture, look in at the purple pansy's and there in it, also looks like Tink has a fiber optic tip on her wand?

    Ah, another update. Thanks.

    Tomorrow morning I have to go to Cypress for an orientation as a head judge for a district spelling bee (doesn't matter that I've done this before, orientation is mandatory, sigh). But I will be half way to Disneyland and so plan to pop over for the afternoon and evening. Thanks for the pictures showing me what I have to look forward to. Keep 'em coming!

    Remember all the whining a couple of weeks ago about how Disney was so terrible for destroying the staircase... Well, it turns out Disney was plussing it. The new railing looks great!

    Great pics. It's awesome seeing the outside of the Dreams Suite getting all this attention. I love when things looks brand spanking new.

    Nemofinder - Good eye! I completely missed that this morning, and now I can't wait to go back and see what this looks like at night. Here's a closer shot of the wand and ground lights:
