Many rides are down for refurbishments recently, marking a true off-season for Disney, and the park is getting ready for its huge 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration.

Sleeping Beauty’s Castle is completely covered with scaffolding and is disguised with a image of the castle on a tarp. Both sides of the castle are. The castle should be back open by March 2nd of this year, in time for the 60th anniversary.DSC_0654 (Large) DSC_0651 (Large) DSC_0681 (Large)
There are a lot of construction walls up! It reminds me of the crazy construction wall maze that was to be found at Universal Studios Hollywood a couple of months ago! Here’s a closer look, at the front, back, and actual construction.DSC_0682 (Large) DSC_0687 (Large) DSC_0685 (Large) DSC_0684 (Large)DSC_0746 (Large)

Construction continues over at the old Condor Flats area. It will become Grizzly Peak Airfield to match the theme of the Grand Californian and of Grizzly Peak. The Condor Flats theme ended up not working out very well, and thus Disney is re-theming the area.DSC_0699 (Large) DSC_0697 (Large)
