PICTORIAL: Holiday weekend brings crowds and rain plus progress on Marvel, Tomorrowland, parking, and more!

20191130_083026

Over the long holiday weekend, the Disneyland Resort saw no slowing of progress on active projects despite heavy rains and heavy crowds.

We’ll pop in for a look at on-going work at Mickey and Friends parking structure where finishing touches are placed while other heavy construction still continues. Plus, in the parks, we’ll stop in for a look at Tomorrowland and its Project Stardust enhancements, Snow White’s Scary Adventures, and more holiday eats. Plus, we’ll catch up on the Avengers Campus Marvel land and upcoming Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway in Toon Town.

Of course, we’ll have a nice little merch run for you at the end plus a lot more in our latest park pictorial. ENJOY!

Looks A Lot Like Christmas

We’re starting off with a photo that is proving popular on our social media channels with the Matterhorn serving as the foreground to a snow-capped mountainscape courtesy of the recent So. Cal. winter storms.

New Happily Ever After

Snow White’s Scary Adventures at Disneyland is prepping for a huge dose of TLC and it seems like a heaping spoonful of magic is being added during the attraction’s refurbishment with a completely re-thought finale that should promise to be a sparkling and magnificent ending to the classic princess story.

We found Bert and Mary having a different kind of Holiday, one quite Jolly.

20191130_093212 20191130_093221

Looks like Bert drew Mary a nice warm version of her regular Jolly Holiday outfit.

20191130_090213

Looking for Snow White, eh? Sure you’ve come to the proper place. But keep a weather eye open, and hold on tight—with both hands, if you please. There be spells ahead! And an Evil Queen waiting for them what don’t obey.

Looks like the last bit of railing has gone in on the new planters in front of Tomorrowland.

20191130_093353

20191130_093432

The concept art revealed last weekend teases what’s to come.

It would appear this cutout for benches will soon become a new walkway.

The stairway construction is revealed once again since the scrims were lowered for weather.

A fourth Tomorrowland Fastpass kiosk was added in front of Space Mountain. It provides FastPasses for all three FP-enabled attractions in the land.

Carthay Circle Restaurant menus for Frozen dinner packages and World of Color dinner packages.

It’s not just purple cotton candy, it’s Maleficent Glow Cotton Candy. $12, please.

20191130_121036

The disease continues to spread with more of these really ugly merch carts popping up everywhere in Disney California Adventure. Gotta squeeze every last penny out of every square inch, apparently.

20191130_120643

Walls still surround portions of the Red Car Trolley track which seems to be getting a re-route to the other side of the tower. Had really hoped that this would connect deeper into the new Avengers Campus.

For the Disney Holidays, Award Wieners has introduced two gems to its menus for the season. The Cheesy “Corn” comes as toppings on either a a jalapeño-cheddar sausage (on a toasted potato bun) or the location’s regular fimlstrip fries. What exactly are the toppings? Tangy corn-cheese sauce, chile-lime-dusted corn fritters, pickled fresno chiles, and cilantro. SO GOOD!

20191130_112730(0)

Seriously want cup of just the tangy corn nuggets to munch on in the park!!

20191130_103251

At the Festival of Holidays, the Pork al Pastor Naan Taco is a magical delight with Pineapple Pico de Gallo and Cilantro-Lime Crema!

20191130_110124

If you’re into the whole “Thanksgiving dinner on a…” then this pizza at Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta might be for you.

20191130_115916

Plant-etarium street tacos at the Studio Catering Co. truck feature brussel sprouts, salsa verde, and pickled red onions with an apple pomegranate slaw. This is still a mega tasty option although this year they only give you two instead of three.

Around the Resort

20191130_082902

The elevators are now caged in permanently with metal scrims.

20191130_082842

New vending machines are ready to dispense your first concessions of the day before you even leave the structure. Gotta squeeze every last penny out of every square inch, apparently. Cynicism aside, this actually does make sense. Dare we say they should have a concession stand down in the main courtyard with some of the essentials/basics?

20191130_082907

20191130_082950

Elevators are amongst the last bit of work to be completed at the structure.

20191130_083023

The new Mickey statue has FINALLY been placed. A lovely new photo-op.

Lots of A-frame sandwich boards around the structure with various notes about strollers, hours, etc.
