PICTORIAL: Autumn crowds continue building as AVENGERS and Stardust continue, ‘Runaway Railway’ construction begins

20191012_105014

Crowds continue to descend upon the spookiest place on Earth with folks streaming in to enjoy pumpkin spice and everything nice about Disney’s Halloween Time season.

Meanwhile, construction continues at all corners of the resort where we continue to see more metal and earth shift for Avengers Campus Marvel themed land and the upcoming Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway in Toon Town. Plus, Tomorrowland sees Project Stardust enhancements with its new entrance statement and a centralized FastPass distribution center that is expected to open this week.

All of this and plenty more including a nice merch run at the end (with some specials for Annual Pass holders) in this latest park pictorial. ENJOY!

Some of the walls have finally come down at the entrance around the Red Car Trolley station.

20191012_080957

It is our understanding that new wireless charging pads were added on the track to keep the vehicles juiced in-between voyages since they don’t actually get their power from the purely-ornamental overhead wires. I wonder if I could put my phone on it. XD

Ugly merch cart remains farther up the walkway past Carthay Circle.

20191012_082920

Doesn’t it seem like the Luxo Lamp animatronic would actually be more effective up here than on the entrance sign into Pixar Pier where it seems he largely gets overlooked? There’s no visual intrusion here and the movement would be far more noticeable with just the blue sky as backdrop behind it. Plus, he would be sitting atop the actual Lamplight Lounge.

20191012_085202

Still no Mickey. Who needs details?

20191012_091135

Vintage vehicle still getting some TLC.

Dapper Dans on Main Street at the porch. Something so perfectly wholesome about that.

20191012_103737 20191012_103707

Walls remain in and around the walkway in front of the Plaza Inn.

20191012_103551 20191012_103626

Walls up at the entrance of Tomorrowland as the new planters and curb-free walkways take shape.

20191012_103444 20191012_103421

Scaffolding and scrims remain on either side of the buildings at the Tomorrowland entrance.

20191012_103432

20191012_102819

Looks like the new Tomorrowland FastPass distribution center is coming along.

20191012_102905

Looks like one of the moving digital signage posts we saw for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be in use for the upcoming Tomorrowland FastPass distribution center.

20191012_102830 20191012_102836

The new kiosks have been placed and are expected to be in use this week.

20191012_092734

Lovely little water feature.

20191012_093058

Register on outside of the Royal Street Verandah helps streamline operations of the busy little window.

20191012_093135

There’s still plenty of Jack Skellington Premium Sippers, $22.99.

20191012_095825

Looks like the new trees in Fantasyland still need a little alone time.

20191012_100652

Several of the hill backdrops in Mickey’s Toon Town have come down in anticipation of upcoming construction on the new Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway attraction.

Without the hills, some vantage points in Mickey’s Toon Town reveal backstage areas including the Team Disney Anaheim building.

20191012_100459

The hills behind Mickey’s house remain in place.

20191012_100258

The Downtown Toon Town backdrops are also still in place for now although construction is expected to begin here very soon.

20191012_100708

20191012_100800

It seems entirely plausible that a fourth entrance into Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge could connect from Mickey’s Toon Town.

20191012_100733

But hopefully they address some of the sightline issues if they do. This is pretty bad.

20191012_100828

20191012_101750

For some reason, it seems two of the popsicle stick benches from the now-gone “a bug’s land” have made their way over to Goofy’s House. Not entirely sure why.

20191012_101745

One bench was also placed near Gadget’s Go Coaster where it makes a lot more sense thematically.

Around the Resort

20191012_074056

Disney is enforcing a new rule that all strollers must be folded prior to boarding the trams.

20191012_075611

20191012_074512

20191012_075627

Looks like they have a Cast Member posted at this awkward piece of the Pixar Pals parking structure to ensure guests who unknowingly take the elevators to the first floor can cross the tram route safely. Seems highly inefficient.

20191012_075145

Meanwhile, Pixar Pals parking levels remain incredibly dark, this photo was taken at about 8am. It’s extremely unusual and feels unsafe.

20191012_112911

Still no sign of the Mickey sculpture on the Mickey and Friends side.

20191012_112917

Plants have arrived, though, which means we might see some action here very soon.

20191012_113040 20191012_113046

The second elevator well is coming along on the Mickey and Friends side.

20191012_113213

The walkway around the new elevator also seems ready for guests.

20191012_113129

20191012_080657

Random Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Honda, still random.

Oogie Boogie Wishables figure is exceedingly adorable.

20191012_104331

In celebration of the recent 70th anniversary of The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, a few merch pieces have been put together.

20191012_081138

20191012_104424

Meanwhile, if you’re a fan of the Haunted Mansion ghost jars, there’s still plenty available. When you pick them up or put them down, you can hear Madame Leota laugh.

20191012_104456

When you turn them around and press the lids you can see the ghostly inhabitants. There’s 8 jars total to collect and a 9th one if you’re an Annual Passholder.

20191012_104756

The Victor Geist jar is an Annual Passholder exclusive.

20191012_104730

Meanwhile, there’s some fun diorama toys that you can get your hands on celebrating the Haunted Mansion.
