    PHOTO UPDATE 6/6: Midway Mania! - Queue, merch, fun! Also- Castle walk-thru, +MORE!

    WELCOME TO DISNEYLAND!
    These things were out in the Pinocchio lot




    The Guided Tour Garden is closed for refurbishment, so tour groups meet in front of the Guided Tour building instead of in the garden.







    One of Town Square's cannons is temporarily gone...





    New Alice in Wonderland merchandise is available in Disneyana in honor of the attraction's 50th Anniversary.






    Disneyana also has some events coming up -- including the release and signing of the new Monorail Mark VII attraction poster taking place today, Sunday June 8.




    And a couple new pieces are available too, including a print of the poster design for the Goofy short that preceded National Treasure 2 in theaters.




    The Plaza Pavillion is now covered in tarps



    SLEEPING BEAUTY CASTLE WALK-THROUGH
    Work is certainly being done in the old Castle Walk-Through...


    Hopefully we'll be able to enter the Castle again soon!







    SMALL WORLD, TOON TOWN
    The "it's a small world" clock tower is out from behind its tarps.




    The "it's a small world" Toy Shoppe is now covered up though.





    In Toon Town, the fire truck has returned for photo ops and its bright and shiny!


    New asphalt was being put in in front of Goofy's Gas...






    And Donald's Boat continues its refurb...





    KOREA SHOWCASE
    Over at DCA, the Pacific Wharf was getting set up for the Hi Seoul/Korea Performance Showcase which will take place throughout next week.











    It's Tough To Be A Bug! is open again after its recent refurb


    Lots of buoys in the water -- possibly for World of Color planning?


    And the Churro cart still isn't open yet... but should be ready to go soon.



    TOY STORY MIDWAY MANIA!
    And finally, a look at Toy Story Midway Mania! which I was lucky enough to ride over the weekend thanks to a very kind MiceChatter

    The theming and details in the facade is exceptional. Top-notch Disney quality here!























    Mr. Potato Head is good fun.










    The queue building has overhead string lights and attraction posters for each of the midway games that you'll be partaking in. These posters feature some great design work.


















    You're responsible for picking up your 3D game glasses in line.


    Load/Unload


    Beginning of the ride


    End of the ride




    Exit stairs


    You exit into the Midway Mercantile shop via stairs and a balcony which features a nice Victorian-era living room scene, with the Toy Story Midway Games box that you just rode through, thus returning you to the size of a human.


    Great theming and details here











    MIDWAY MERCH
    A new "Opening Collection" line of merch has been released for Midway Mania -- and it actually features the attraction's official name and the DCA park logo.

    Adult Tee


    Kid's Tee


    Keychain


    Coffee Cup




    Hat


    Game poster petite prints from the queue (only two are available)



    And they also have new toy cannon keychains.


    When you pull the spring-action shooter, they light up and project one of three items.




    Alllright. That's should wrap it up for this Update...

    Love the photos. What a great variety of interesting items. *fingers crossed* that they're really working on a refurbishing the Sleeping Beauty Castle walk-through. And I'm very curious as to what kind of entertainment is part of the Hi Seoul/Korea event this week. It seems like it could be interesting. I'll go off and search for more info.

    Thanks again for the great update MasterGracey!

    Awesome photos! I had no idea Alice was celebrating her 50th year! Too cool!

    I love the exit for TSMM, what a transition.

    Wonderful update!! Great shots of the goodies that can be bought. Maybe later they will have more than two of the mini posters available.

    Wonder what those "things" were in the parking lot and why are they upside down?

    Thanks for your great shots, MG! It's great to see an old fashioned MG photo update in addition to your weekly column. Those really look like concrete forms in Pinocchio. I wonder if they are pedestals for lights or signage. Hmmm...I almost want to say that maybe they're starting a second level but the forms look much too small for that.

    Thanks for the photos! The theming looks SO much nicer than the style we have at DHS in Florida!

    Wow, awesome pics. I hope they still have some of the Opening collection stuff next weekend. It looks better than the regular shirts.

    Question, that outside queue seen in this picture:


    Is there a place for Umbrellas and stuff? I can't imagine standing in that direct sunlight for any length of time in the middle of the Summer. Hopefully they learned their lesson with Nemo.
