Another piece from Mickey Mouse’s Peter Pan’s Flight series: The Main Attraction has arrived. We found the Loungefly bag last week, and now the matching ears have also landed.

Refurbishment of the aircraft at Grizzly Peak Airfield is also underway.

Redwood Creek Challenge Trail

And Redwood Creek Challenge Trail is also closed, with the removal of Raya’s meet and greet location underway.

Radiator Springs Racers Low wait green

The park is surprisingly empty today. At nearly 10am, there was still no wait time posted for Radiator Springs Racers. But when we pulled out the camera to take a picture of that, of course, that’s when the sign clicks 10 minutes.

Still, 10 minutes isn’t a bad wait for two hours after opening. It is rare to see this path so empty, at any time of the day.

As we took photos of the void, we saw that scaffolding had been set up along the top of the ridge.

Bing Bongs DCA Memory Erasers

It’s a hot day so we stopped for a cool treat to try something new.

Avengers Mug

In the Super Store with Avengers Campus we found some new items. This Avengers mug looks like it was taken straight from Nick Fury’s desk.

Spiderman Ornament

And this Spider-Man ornament celebrates its 60th anniversary with its many costumes showcased between the strands of its webs.

As we walked out we ran into the former webhead who had come out to greet guests and swing from the buildings.

Action Spider-Man DCA

Our final farewell photo of the day comes from the Avengers Campus, where Spidey lands his superhero after a successful altitude test in his new suit.
