Here's a DCA Construction Update (with a brief look at Disneyland too):
Before we check out DCA, here's a brief look at Disneyland with HalloweenTime in full swing.
All your favorite halloween favorites are back: Ghost Galaxy, Haunted Mansion Holiday, and the giant Mickey Jack-O-Lantern.
Construction is coming along on the People Movers. (Note: no construction is actually taking place on the People Movers... it's a joke)
But the Tron coaster is almost finished.
I kid, I kid. They brought back the Rocket Rods.
Moving on to reality, and over to DCA, I present: Construction walls! This is the temporary entrance path while construction is taking place on Buena Vista Street.
This exit to the trams and Downtown Disney is convenient when leaving.
Here's the Carthay Circle Theater.
If you look closely, you can see all that remains of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Looking towards the Hollywood Backlot.
Out with the old, in with the new.
New bridge goes here.
It's Spears! Since the Monorail and California Screamin' were down, and Mickey's Fun Wheel had too long of a wait, it was tough to get great construction photos. So to make up for it, we'll play "Spot The Spears!"
How do you play Spot The Spears? Well, you Spot The Spears! She's in this photo... you have to spot her!
That was fun! Now, moving on to Cars Land...
The rock work looks amazing now that it's mostly completed.
Spot The Spears!
A look at Cars Land from the Wharf.
Heading over to Paradise Pier we passed this duck.
Hello Paradise Pier.
Screamin' got a new coat of blue paint and is looking fancy schmancy.
Spot The Spears!

I especially like the theming work they did on the moon above Cars Land. It's very realistic.
It would be very easy to make this picture patriotic...
See? USA! USA!
From over by the Screamin' station you can see some trees that have gone up in Cars Land.
A closer look at the trees. Ooooh! Ahhhh!
One last Spot The Spears! This one is tricky because there's a decoy (someone with similar hair)... but expert Spears Spotters will be able to find the real Spears!
Hey, it's Gertrude! Thanks for checking out the construction update everyone!

I still have yet to ride either of those! Hopefully, if TPR goes back to Japan in September, I can go then and see their Halloween stuff. I would probably never make it to Anaheim during Halloween season.
