The Disney Holidays are well under way… even if Anaheim was looking at temps in the mid 90s on Sunday!

You know it’s a good day when you are granted audience with Cruella DeVil!

Strings have been strung across Main Street, USA. That means garland is making its way over to the merriest place on Earth!

20191117_082523

Walls are finally down around Plaza Inn revealing smaller planters and wider walkways.

20191117_082546

Some of the new planters don’t yet have their fences. You can see on the right side of the photo the new flooring where the planter used to extend.

20191117_082540

It’s a shame they can’t stay that way, it looks great.

20191117_082634

Drill holes are ready for new fencing to be placed.

20191117_082626 20191117_083128

The fence-free grass areas are reminiscent of the early days of Disneyland when planters similarly were not fenced in.

The entrance of Tomorrowland is ready for the impact of nightly crowds waiting for fireworks and parades.

20191117_083448 20191117_083507

This final bit of walls remain at the entrance. Notice the curb-free perimeter of the hub which should make it much easier for wheel-bound guests to traverse.

20191117_082858 20191117_082844

The buildings behind the entrance remain behind scaffolding and scrims.
