Here's a DCA Construction Update (with a brief look at Disneyland too):
1.JPG
Before we check out DCA, here's a brief look at Disneyland with HalloweenTime in full swing.
2.JPG
All your favorite halloween favorites are back: Ghost Galaxy, Haunted Mansion Holiday, and the giant Mickey Jack-O-Lantern.
3.JPG
Construction is coming along on the People Movers. (Note: no construction is actually taking place on the People Movers... it's a joke)
4.JPG
But the Tron coaster is almost finished.
5.JPG
I kid, I kid. They brought back the Rocket Rods.
6.JPG
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.
7.JPG
Good riddance!
8.JPG
This exit to the trams and Downtown Disney is convenient when leaving.
9.JPG
Here's the Carthay Circle Theater.
10.JPG
If you look closely, you can see all that remains of the Golden Gate Bridge.
11.JPG
Looking towards the Hollywood Backlot.
12.JPG
Out with the old, in with the new.
13.JPG
New bridge goes here.
14.JPG
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!"
15.JPG
How do you play Spot The Spears? Well, you Spot The Spears! She's in this photo... you have to spot her!
16.JPG
That was fun! Now, moving on to Cars Land...
17.JPG
The rock work looks amazing now that it's mostly completed.
18.JPG
Spot The Spears!

A look at Cars Land from the Wharf.

Heading over to Paradise Pier we passed this duck.
21.JPG
Hello Paradise Pier.
22.JPG
Screamin' got a new coat of blue paint and is looking fancy schmancy.
23.JPG
Spot The Spears!
24.JPG

25.JPG
I especially like the theming work they did on the moon above Cars Land. It's very realistic.
26.JPG
mmmm.... blue.
27.JPG
It would be very easy to make this picture patriotic...
28.JPG
See? USA! USA!
29.JPG
From over by the Screamin' station you can see some trees that have gone up in Cars Land.
30.JPG
A closer look at the trees. Ooooh! Ahhhh!
31.JPG
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!
32.jpg
Hey, it's Gertrude! Thanks for checking out the construction update everyone!

I totally fail at the Spears game. How is the Ghost Galaxy version of Space Mountain? I hope it is better than Rock-it Mountain...or whatever it was called.

^ Ghost Galaxy is pretty good. It's much better than Rock-It Mountain, but nowhere near on par with Haunted Mansion Holiday.

I'm loving the Spot the Spears game. I do that in every picture thread anyway. She's pretty.

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.

The blue paint looks awesome on California screamin'. I remember my first ride in 2004....Ahhh what a great coaster. That rock work looks really amazing too :)

I know EXACTLY where my passport is!

I'm loving cars land, it's the only bit of DCA that I'm interested in with this whole renovation thing but it's not disappointing!!

:b

This is the only update I need.. Much better than another popular Disney site ;)

With the timeline of Caddy tail fins in Cars Land, it's quite sexy for a car lover like myself.

Man, look at the Main Street crowd.. wow. What day were you there?

Thank you for doing the update David, it was great and funny!! If I had a real camera, id do one every week, but I don't haha. And Spot the Spears game was great! I found her every time!!

Im really happy this whole thing will be done in a few months, its been a long time with these construction walls.
