• Pictorial: Disneyland Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend, 60th Anniversary refurbishments, and more!

    This weekend should be a busy one for the Disneyland Resort with the Inaugural Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend as well as a Holiday Weekend. But with the crowds the Resort is in full swing refurbishment mode and there are closures all around the Resort.

    Becca takes at look at the Health and Fitness Expo as well as the ongoing refurbishment that will be kicking the Resort into high gear for its 60th Anniversary Celebration!

    Hope you enjoy!

    Full update below...

    Signs pointing you to Packet Pick up and the Health and Fitness Expo at the Mickey & Friends Parking Structure.

    Matterhorn is closed until May for more refurbishments.

    The old signs are back up on the walls to share about the mountains history.

    it's a small world Holiday is still open while the facade is under tarps.

    The attraction remains open while the Holiday overlay is removed from Haunted Mansion.

    Another look at the Mattherhorn from its entrance.

    The Big Hero 6 Sneak Preview is now closed at the Magic Eye Theater.

    The meet n' greet has also been removed.

    New Orleans Square decorations will remain until the end of Mardi Gras.

    21 Royal Street has reopened from its refurbishment.

    It is rumored to be a separate dinning room for Club 33 members, but nothing has officially been announced.

    Only a small amount of merchandise remains in the area.

    The vase is still missing.

    Will this be the entrance to the rumored dinning room?

    Haunted Mansion is now closed for its Holiday overlay removal.

    Critter Country is now closed as well, and it is in the map to show guests the entire land will reopen in the Spring.

    The Fantasmic FASTPASS and dinning packages have started. Aladdin's Oasis has the grab and go offers.

    Looks better than the options that they had for the World of Color Picnic Packages.

    The castle is ready to go under tarps for its 60th transformation. The railing that supported lights for Remember Dreams Come True is gone as well.

    Since nothing has officially been announced, who knows if something else might return for the new show, but we shall find out soon!

    My attempt to be artsy.

    Beautiful lagoon with Mattherhorn in the background.

    The Howard Johnson is building a new hotel behind Mimi's. It is owned by HoJo, but will be named something else. Apparently more upscale but around the same price point.

    Liked how this picture came out from the Monorail.

    Lots and lots of changes in the now closed Condor Flats area. This use to be the Rocket engine mister.

    Apricot Lane has now closed in Downtown Disney. Not 100% confirmed on what the location might be, but it might perk you up during the day.

    Downtown Disney and Disney Vacation Club decals are placed on the windows.

    These locations will be open early for Star Wars Half Marathon participants.

    All this talk about Half Marathons made me crave something healthy! Berry Chicken Salad from Earl of Sandwich!

    It was so amazing!

    The Christmas Village is still going until February, but it seems weirdly out of place now.

    Now it's just a pine tree instead of a Christmas tree!

    The Disneyland Hotel is also getting refurbishment.
