Disneyland Photo Update – February 10th

Editor’s note: Welcome Kace to The Disney Blog. He’s going to be keeping the blog up to date with the goings-on over at the one, the original, the only park that Walt Disney physically set foot in – Disneyland.

Hi, everyone! I had my first Disneyland visit as a writer for The Disney Blog the other day, and thought I should share some of the pictures/video I took while I was there. Along the way we enjoyed AP Days, saw a the new “Beauty and the Beast” preview, and more. Enjoy!

First things first, here is a chair on Main Street that fell over. Heh. It was a pretty stormy day, so some wind must have knocked it over.

Awesome AP Days Pin!

Autopia Dog Bump


Filming for some sort of AP Days Promo


Pete’s Dragon Plant Collage


The castle is still in a bit of an awkward phase; difficulty removing the 60th anniversary decorations has led to quick fixes that don’t look great. Not sure if most people notice, though. And Mel looks great, of course.

Main Street Electrical Parade Mystery Macaroon Review


The Sheriff of Nottingham and King Richard make a rare appearance at AP Days. The line for this event was crowded and in the rain, so hopefully we will make it next week…

Tomorrowland in the rain at night felt like a scene out of Blade Runner.


The Ill-Fated Disney Junior Show

Side note, during our quick stop at California Adventure we saw a sneak peek of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast remake at the Sunset Showcase Theater. While it’s been many years since I’ve seen the 1991 version, this live action take seems to be an almost shot-for-shot remake of it. The sneak peek gave us a look at the reimagined “Little Town” sequence, which was just as lively and well timed as I remember the original being. I can’t say I really see the point in these live action remakes, but as long as they stay true to the original like Beauty seems to be doing and don’t drastically alter the characters/mood like what was done with Alice in Wonderland then I don’t see much harm in them either.

Interesting Mr. Lincoln Pin


Secret Limited Edition AP Haunted Mansion Pin ($16) I couldn’t resist!

Tiki Goddess Pele


The Tiki Room War Chant is by far my favorite song from the show

That just about wraps it up for today’s photo update; next time I’m actually going to go to Disney with the intention of shooting a photo update instead of doing an impromptu one, so the quality should only improve from here. Thanks for reading!

    The premier article seems to be on track. I was getting rather bored with constant articles on Disney World. The only good thing is they make you seriously want to make a trip there. That said, I am looking forward to the next article. Just keep the humor in it, keep us updated on Star Wars and Marvel rides. Let us know of what changes to rides we old timers can expect. Good start!
