There was beautiful weather for today's trip to the Disneyland Resort.
First off, a visit to California Adventure, where the Condor Flats Airfield is being rethemed; it's now going to be part of the Grizzly Peak area.
I'm not quite sure what to make of this advertisement for the new FROZEN activities which are located in Hollywood Land. This sign, situated in the area recently occupied by the park's Christmas tree, looks a bit like a popsicle, with a big white stick in front:
After breakfast and some rides it was time to head over to Disneyland for the new exhibit "Snow Queens: Art of Ice."
The exhibit combines design ideas for FROZEN (2013) with older art by legendary Disney Imagineer Marc Davis for The Enchanted Snow Palace, a boat ride inspired by THE SNOW QUEEN. The Enchanted Snow Palace was planned for Florida's Magic Kingdom in the '70s; alas, it was never built.
Some of the FROZEN art:

A couple of years ago Jim Hill Media posted an article with more information on the abandoned project.
I love to collect Disney theme park mugs and was happy this week to learn about a brand-new line of "You Are Here" Starbucks mugs sold at the two parks. I came home with both of them!
A cast member told me they are selling very quickly, and indeed, I saw the shelves being restocked in both parks while I was shopping.
As lovely as the day was, I'm glad to see there's some possible rain in next week's forecast; California needs it!
Have a great weekend!
