  • PHOTO UPDATE 4/22: Pow Wow event, Tom Sawyer Island, Submarine Voyage, refurbs, +MORE

    Another update...

    WELCOME TO DISNEYLAND &
    SUBMARINE VOYAGE

    We rode in to Disneyland on the Monorail so we could check out the Lagoon.






    As we disembarked in Tomorrowland, we saw three subs exiting the caverns. Very very cool.





    A small portion of the construction "wall" along the Autopia route is down. You can get a pretty impressive view of the Lagoon from on Autopia now.





    SEIMENS' TOMORROW
    Seimens' upcoming exhibit in Innoventions is under construction... I'm interested to see what their PROJECT TOMORROW is...





    TRAVEL POW WOW
    The event set-up for the didn't impact the park like set-up for the Pirates premieres do, but there was definately a lot going on.

    The Plaza Gardens stage and dancefloor was converted to a storage area for catering supplies




    Every food location in Adventureland, Frontierland, New Orleans Square, and Critter Country was closed and the major dining establishments has signs similar to the one seen at Rancho del Zocalo:


    Lots of suits out and about:


    Frontierland's small El Zocalo Park was walled off for supply storage for the event as well


    Walls were up by the Columbia/Mark Twain dock as well, behind the Pow Wow stage:


    Speaking of the stage:









    White tents littered the Riverfront, as well as all of Adventureland.









    Critter Country closed even eariler than the rest of the West Side of the park:



    Some people from the Industry were given a tour of the park, including a briefing of the upcoming Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage. After getting the run-down of the new attraction, they were taken to Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters, ushered in through the Fastpass queue, and taken on a spin to help defeat Zurg.


    Naturally, Frontierland was the entrance to the Pow Wow:




    Travel industry bigwigs in line for a big Disney party:






    TOM SAWYER ISLAND & MARK TWAIN








    The Rafts to Tom Sawyer Island dock is out from construction walls. Not much has changed...


    I don't know if these turnstiles are new - I don't remember them being there before, but then again, I didn't visit the Island much.



    The Mark Twain got some signage explaining the refurbishment that is strikingly obvious to park guests:


    The sign says:
    MARK TWAIN RIVERBOAT
    IN DRYDOCK UNDER IMPROVEMENTS


    Ornate white steamboats such as the Mark
    Twain were once a common sight on American
    rivers. With their elegant style and leisurely
    pace, they symbolized sohpistication, adventure
    and romance for generations of Americans.

    To maintain its beauty and functionality, the Mark
    Twain periodically takes a break from its daily
    river runs to undergo refreshment by a team of
    experts. From this vantage point at Fowler's
    Harbor, you may be able to observe some of the
    current work, including the installation of new
    decking throughout the ship.

    The Mark Twain will be resuming daily passenger
    services later this spring.



    OTHER REFURBS
    The cabin in Frontierland is done.








    No more tarps on Tarzan's Treehouse:


    I believe the attraction will be back open sometime next month:



    Indy is getting its new ramp:


    Temporary queue re-direction means crossing the fake mine track:


    Creepy:




    THIS & THAT
    Queenie was out doin' her Mardi Gras thing:




    After the afternoon parade, they ushered overflow traffic backstage, even though it wasn't necessary at all. Most everybody went down Main Street, since traffic down the street wasn't all that terrible.



    The new Disneyland Railroad shadowbox by Dave Avazino is really nice:


    The detail is quite nice:




    ...Alright.. that's it. Thanks for looking.

            Great update, MG! I wasn't up to date on why the park was closing early, so it was great to see all of the Pow Wow shots.

            Just a heads up...if I see "Disney Parks" again any time soon, people need to stand back because I'm going to hurl...




            Also....I wonder if that Tom Sawyer Stage was temporary for the event or if that's how it will look from now on. Hmmmm...

                I don't know if the Pow-Wow was any good but it was in-tents.

                That was my punny contribution for the day.

                Thanks for the super-excellent photos and reporting!

                  Great pictures. Thanks.

                  I can kind of see why they were using the DisneyParks thing for the Pow Wow. They want to promote all Disney Parks, not just Disneyland.

                        Those turnstiles are not new, the only thing new since the walls came down is a box in the bushes.

                              Great pictures. At some points yesterday I felt like we were in Tent City.
