The Disneyland Resort is entering the final stretch of its huge five-year expansion of Disney California Adventure and various remodeling and expansion projects in both theme parks and in Downtown Disney. At Disneyland, the finishing touches are being applied to the Matterhorn Bobsleds as that project gets ready to emerge from a major five-month refurbishment project. Nearby, the former Carnation Plaza Gardens is undergoing demolition as it begins its conversion into the new Fantasy Faire princess meet-and-greet area. At Disney California Adventure, the park's new signature dining location, the Carthay Circle Restaurant on Buena Vista Street is now taking reservations as additional finishing touches continue to be applied throughout the new entrance plaza. In Cars Land, Disney has unveiled new restaurant menus along with the first TV commercial for the all-new 12-acre land. Meanwhile, work continues on various Downtown Disney projects, including construction on the new WonderGround Gallery next to the popular D-Street store.

Alice is best known for her costuming work on classic Disneyland attractions including Pirates of the Caribbean and "it's a small world." Her new window that makes reference to her as the "Seamstress to the Stars" is located next to window dedicated to her late husband and fellow Imagineer Marc Davis. Congratulations, Alice!
