With the park opening at 10am this week, I decided to visit the park for a couple hours after Spring Breaks have ended. Even though it was a warm day, there were still a good amount of people here for the 10am rope drop.
I decided to line up infront of Adventureland because I knew there was going to be a big rush going to Big Thunder Mountain, via Frontierland.
Adventureland is slow nowadays because Indiana Jones is still down under refurbishment after Indy took a sabbatical in order to visit more museums. Also, the Jungle Cruise didn’t open at park open, so there were skippers outside re-enacting their tours with a couple families as their “group”.
I continued to New Orleans Square as I wanted to see how quiet it really is as Pirates of the Caribbean was closed the day prior.
To entertain the crowd walking by, the Bootstrappers were performing outside of the attraction, who recently celebrated their 12,000th performance at Disneyland.
Now with Pirates down, the entire area of NOS was dead quiet.
Also, I noticed that the Mark Twain is dry-docked, usually where Sailing Ship Columbia is docked. But it won’t be long, as it is closed only until the 30th.
While wondering out of Frontierland into Fantasyland, King Arthur Carousel is also closed for the week, but while it is closed, it provides a nice time to take pictures of the horses; almost impossible to do while it is open.
With the heat getting warmer as noon approached, I headed out to Main Street where I saw the Disneyland Band ending their show in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle and caught their one number on Main Street. Here’s Mickey conducting to a part of “Under the Sea”.
After this song, the Band moves down to the Main Street Train Station for one more song, stretching their morning show to three different locations on Main Street USA. Also, new flowers were planted around the Flag Pole.
For a while now, I’ve wanted to start some occasional blog/article here on MW. If you want to see more of these types of articles and/or have ideas for me to write, please let me know!

unForecast Crowd Prediction: This week is the unofficial start of the Spring Break crowds, so expect the parks to be a little more crowded than normal. Also with only one showing of Fantasmic during the week, expect FPs for the show to go quickly along with it being crowded around the Rivers of America close to showtime. Throughout the week, expect CIs to be in the high 60s to low 80s for Disneyland Park and in the low 70s to low 80s for DCA.
