  • Andrew's 4-27 SUPER UPDATE: Grand Finale, Rockin' no more, Sub waterfalls, and more!

    Why grand finale, do you ask? Friday marked the expiration of my first Deluxe Annual pass I’ve ever owned. Unfortunately, I’ve been forced to let it lapse, as I am out of fundage at the moment, and I’ll have other ways to get into the park during the summer… those of you who know will know why

    Aaaannywho, let’s get going on this epic photo report!

    First off, a vertigo shot from the Minnie level…

    Oh, Scottie! Don’t let me go!



    New billboards are up in the tram area.

    I dream of spinning in a blurry elephant!




    YOAMD… pronounced YAWN-MD

    Careful… yawns are contagious.



    I dream of nausea!

    Also, you apparently can’t dream of California Adventure…




    Yep, the security tents are green. They look about 18 times better now.

    Unfortunately, I think they were going for 20 times…



    Tee hee… these are cute.

    I FOUND NEMO!!!



    Also cute, but I’ve never seen Hook out on Columbia.

    Smuggle me eyes; it is Pan! Look alive you swabs.



    Lots of ODV in Town Square. Were these here before?

    Certainly not in Marceline, but eh.




    I was strolling through the park one day—h-hey! It’s Ed!

    I quickly whip out my paparazzi camera.




    Jumping over to Indiana Jones, the line is mercifully short and smooth thanks to the construction on the bridge. This, in case you didn’t know means that there’s no Fastpass. Check out the action shot!

    No, really… I think it’s cool.




    Jumping back… maybe I took the train?... Disney showcase is in rehab.

    It needs to control its emotions.




    Penny Arcade is also in rehab.

    Seriously, it’s like Malibu here.





    Over at the sub lagoon, I heard this strange sound coming from beyond the walls. What’s this I see? The waterfalls were testing! Here’s a superspy shot.

    Supa-spyyyyy!



    To investigate, I jumped on the Monorail, took a whole trip around the resort before coming back to…
    D’OH!
    They’re already off.

    Well, not quite superspy, but I tried, ok?




    Speaking of rehab, Mark Twain is nearing the end of his treatment.

    Promises, promises, promises.





    A look at Main Street. Not bad for a Friday.

    After the 2fers end, of course!




    Oh glory be. Space Mountain is back to being… Space Mountain. With space.

    And a heck of a longer line.




    For your viewing pleasure, here’s the real Space Mountain on Friday. Ah, bliss. PLEASE, DO NOT HOTLINK this video.

    Now THAT’S what I call rocking the universe.



    I, clearly, am happy.

    Andrew sez: HOORAY FOR SPACE!



    New ODV pops up in Tomorrowland. They just keep spreading.

    The spirit of Pressler seeps into the park to this day!



    The TSI stage has received a bit more work. Note the zipline pole has been textured (it wants attention, BTW), and the stairs are complete.

    Look at me, I’m a pole. Pay attention to me.




    Splash’s queue building has emerged from tarps. Looking good!

    And it’s a wonderful feeling, feeling this way.




    Testing with some water dummies.

    You dummies, you.




    They are not very intelligent.

    Who, us? You’re not allowed to sit sideways? What IS this?



    Alas, not all the surfaces got that paint job.

    Nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen…




    Heading over to California Adventure, I can’t wait to be back after the 2fers are gone. Everything will have short lines and…
    Wait, what?

    I think I’ve just been Punk’d.



    No Rockin’ here, either.

    Glory be, again.



    Ah… it’s the food and wine festival, hosted by a great magazine. Seriously, it’s nice to see such big name corporate entities taking an interest in California Adv—what’s that you say?
    Oh.

    Well, hey. Napkins are important too.



    We’re SO gonna celebrate this party with you!
    How I’ve missed this show since I’ve last been over here. And how I’ll miss it until I’m back this summer.
    Super props to the Monsters Inc. cast. They consistently bring in the best show on the block. Also, the green army man takes the cake for energy, and creativity. For those of you who keep score, it was “Private Constance” on Friday.







    A painting project in the Esplanade (entrance plaza, whatEVER)

    Yay! We aren’t neglected! Now… for that monorail beam.



    I was certain they were done with these projects, but it looks like the last of the turnstyle structures is down for repainting.

    You don’t know what it’s like to be neglected!



    Flash forward to nighttime! Tomorrowland Terrace stage is jumpin’. I really want this lady’s job!

    Seriously, how fun would that be?



    Artsy shot of the SPACE Mountain queue. It looks rather psychedelic, no?

    Seriously, just smell how great that red light feels!




    So long, Disneyland. It’s been a fantastic year. I’ll see you again from a different angle.

    W0rd. We’ll be looking forward to it.


    And thank you all for putting up with these photo updates. They’ll be on hiatus until some time in June, but let me know what you all think about these by leaving your comments on the thread.
    Thanks!

            they could have also did this..

            quick turn the waterfall on to see if it makes a mice chat update... then turn it off by the time the monorail comes back around...

            great photos, nice composition... thanks for sharing.

                  Here's hoping you get the funding earlier, because we don't want to wait that long for your next report.

                  Gread job on this! :thumbup:

                      I was foiled!
                      Seriously, though, both waterfalls (they were both on) look and sound fantastic. They'll make a great addition to the lagoon when they're back on.

                      Don't worry. I'll be back with more. Is there any specific sort of photos you all request?

                              Great job once again!
                              Love the pics and comments!

                              Maybe Vanity Fair can help with some funding?

                              Or at least some absorbent cloth squares?
                              How much do we have to pay to get MiceChat Old?
