Today at Disney California Adventure: Under Construction

Thanks to all the spring film festivals, it's been a while since I've been able to spend time at the Disneyland Resort!

We usually spend the Friday morning before Memorial Day Weekend at the parks, but we're unable to do that this year, so instead we took a half day off today and headed for Disney California Adventure. Click any photo below to enlarge for a closer look!

Paradise Pier is behind construction walls... it's transformed to Pixar Pier. California Screamin' will become the Incredicoaster:

Looking toward Paradise Bay from the Silly Symphony Swings:

It was rather fascinating watching the work going on at the raised World of Color platform. Here's a closer look:

Another view. looking toward Mickey's Fun Wheel, which will turn into the Pixar Pal-A-Round. (Surely there's a better name they could use...)

The Blue Sky Cellar has reopened with models and artwork showing what the completed Pixar Pier will look like:

I love the Mid-Century Modern look for the Incredicoaster ride queue building:

Is a Marvel Land display next for the Blue Sky Cellar?

Looking toward Cars Land from the patio outside the Blue Sky Cellar:

We finished our visit with dinner while listening to the Pixarmonic Orchestra playing music from Pixar films. They were quite good, a great finish to our afternoon!

A lady trombonist and a lady bass player in the Pixarmonic Orchestra! That's great.
