  • 4/25 Update: Main Street refurbs and....um...where did everybody go?

    It's Wednesday and I don't have to be at work until this afternoon...so....let's go to Disneyland!




    Upon entering the park this morning, you can see that the refurbishing continues on Mainstreet:








    The Penny Arcade is out of commission for awhile:






    As I continued on into the hub, I noticed that it was not as crowded as last week...




    But it wasn't until I got to Frontierland that I began to wonder where everyone was:




    It's 10:00 AM and the people are...um....where?






    Not in Critter Country...




    What a difference a week makes. This is the line for POTC LAST week in the RAIN:




    and today in the bright sunshine. Both shots were taken at approx 10:15ish:




    Again....Matterhorn line last week in the RAIN:



    and today:





    Here is the line....or lack of it...for the Monorail at appx 10:30:




    I must admit that the park was not completely empty. There was, as you can see, a wait time of 20 minutes for SM at 10:30...



    But compared to LAST Wednesday...




    But it's nice to see the Spring Break crowd finally dissipate a bit. I hope it stays like this through May!

    (More to come)

      This is much better. Now if I wasn't so sick (Teeth pulled and having a bad reaction) I would hop on the bus and go. I love the "Off Season" when it really becomes the "Off Season" which isn't too often anymore. Good pictures as well. Thanks for taking us along for the trip.

              My daughter and I are planning to go after I get off work. So from 1 PM to closing or there abouts. Glad to see the crowds down. We went during Spring Break and just enjoyed the park, but no rides. Tomorrow we'll get on the ones we really like. I hope the park is as light in the afternoon as it appears to be in the mornings. And the weather is nice too!

                Wow. Its scary to see the park like this.

                What exactly are they doing on Main Street?

                  That is amazing the difference in the crowds. Thanks for the comparison pictures, really cool.

                      The window frames on the World Showcase exterior are being given a healthy dose of TLC - new wood, paint, the like. Of course this and the other Main Street buildings were last given updates in the months prior to the 50th, but that job was pretty rushed, and now some effort is being made to really get things up to par, in time for the big Pirates premiere and red carpet. I think the floor replacing job for the Penny Arcade, although simultaneous, is not geared for the premiere but is purely out of necessity. But that's just speculation on my part.

                      localdisneyfan, no offense but the color in your photos looks unnatural. Did you alter the saturation?

                          I was there yesterday too with my two daughters. To answer your question, Fatasyland was where everyone was yesterday morning. 40 minute wait for Peter Pan, but other than that, the crowds were a bit lighter than the previous weeks.
