Souvenir hunting was poor - well, at least for this collector. The above card is the only new postcard I purchased. (I did pick up a few older cards to fill-in some gaps in my collection). I didn't return with any new books. Disneyland hasn't published a new Guide Book since 2005.
I did find a brand new watch in the store on Main St. (I've forgotten the name of the store) that took over the old watch store. I'm really picky about my watch requirements (silver, black strap, pie-eyed Mickey AND his hands have to move).
Several new things happening at the resort:
-Magical Fireworks. I really liked this show and the addition of the Flying Dumbo is very cool. But, I'll probably be comparing every new fireworks show to the 50th anniversary show: Remember Dreams Come True. That show, was absolutely brilliant.
-Fantasmic! A couple of new enhancements: A new Croc in the Peter Pan scene who is much more articulated. Flotsam and Jetsam have also been added to the Ursula scene. Alas, still no much-advertised, brand-new Dragon in the finale.
-Electrical Parade. Tink now leads off the Parade and all the floats have never looked better.
