Disney California Adventure finally pulled the plug on its long-running ElecTRONica nighttime dance party this weekend. The popular TRON-themed event was extended several times and proved to be a successful venture for Disney who will replace the nighttime offering with an Alice in Wonderland-themed party this summer. Meanwhile, construction rages on in both parks as Disney prepares new and refreshed attractions, restaurants and shops for the big summer season. In California Adventure, Buena Vista Street and Cars Land continue to get plenty of new details and finishing touches. Meanwhile, in Disneyland, work continues on projects such as the major Matterhorn Bobsleds refurbishment as work gets ready to begin at the new Fantasy Faire princess meet-and-greet area later this month.

WELCOME TO DISNEYLAND!
</td></tr></tbody></table></center>Spring break is over and now Disneyland enters a brief slow period before the start of summer. With so much happening this summer, you probably won't see Disneyland as quiet as you will over the next couple weeks for a very long time. Our friends at Touring Plans have crowd forecasts and tips to help you enjoy the calm before the storm...

Looks like there's still plenty of work to be done before its summer re-opening.



On Wednesday, our friends at Touring Plans broke the news that the Carnation Plaza Gardens at the end of Main Street would be officially closing April 30 to make way for the new Fantasy Faire princess meet-and-greet area:


<blockquote><blockquote><blockquote>Fantasy Faire to Begin Construction April 30 at Disneyland</blockquote></blockquote>Major equipment for the overhaul move in on April 30, 2012. Work will continue through 2013, with an anticipated opening in Winter 2013. Expect pathway closures and heavy construction equipment in the vicinity for the duration of the construction. [ LINK ]</blockquote></blockquote></blockquote>



Since last August's announcement of the Fantasy Faire project, Disney had been reluctant to offer any solid information on when the historic Carnation Plaza Gardens would actually close. Initial reports from the Orange County Register had the area set to close last September but it never did. The delays caused some fans to speculate if the much-criticized project would actually happen. It seems like last week's report from Touring Plans helped push Disney to finally admit the project was still in the works and they officially announced the April 30th closure date and performance schedule for the venue's final days:
<blockquote><blockquote><blockquote>Carnation Plaza Gardens at Disneyland Park to Begin Transformation to New Fantasy Faire Experience on April 30And starting May 5, Disneyland Resort guests can keep on dancing each Saturday night when the Jump, Jive, Boogie Swing Party continues at the Westside Stage in the Downtown Disney District. [ LINK ]</blockquote></blockquote></blockquote>

Below, the Downtown Disney stage where swing dancing will relocate to while the Fantasy Faire is under construction.




On the other side of Sleeping Beauty Castle, the Matterhorn Bobsleds continue their major six-month refurbishment.


It looks like the mountain's repainting project is just about finished.


Workers were adding some "finishing touches" to the re-paint by throwing mud around the base of the mountain.


Yes, we really have video.

Over at California Adventure, the popular ElecTRONica nighttime dance party ended this weekend.




Big crowds came out Sunday for the dance party's final night.

Very big lines for folks wanting their final TRONtini.








With ElecTRONica ending, California Adventure will now be without a nighttime dance party offering until the new Alice In Wonderland-themed Mad T Party officially begins June 15.


Bye bye, Flynn's Arcade






A program waves goodbye.


Below, a video clip with some views and highlights from ElecTRONica's final night.

The Los Feliz Five and Dime
















Scaffolding can seen going back up around the Carthay Circle Theater's tower



The Clarabelle's Ice Cream and Practical Cafe facades are looking great. Photos don't really do this area justice.















Lots of Trolley wires up in the air...


While the wires have proved to be a bit controversial with some fans as some think they're unnecessary or ugly, we're happy they're here. The wires, while maybe not the most attractive element of Buena Vista Street, will add a layer of authenticity here and hopefully help the area become a believable escape, unlike the contemporary stucco-and-neon strip mall that was the previous Sunshine Plaza.








Last week, Disney finally announced an official return date for California Adventure's Pixar Play Parade. The parade has been on hiatus since January 2011 and was originally set to return November 2011 but with shifting construction timelines, never made it back. It will finally return to the park's new expanded parade route this summer and will include some modifications due to new height limits put in place by the Red Car Trolley wires.

The Cove Bar is still closed during its refurbishment.


Disney recently announced that the Cove Bar's main restaurant, Ariel's Grotto, will get some changes this summer. World of Color dining packages will no longer be offered at the restaurant and a new breakfast menu will debut and all meals will become character dining.
