When in Florida

Sound advice if you ask me - you came all this way, no need to skip such a landmark! Look for these signs overhead at Chester and Hester's shop...

Recycling in the recreation area

While we are in the Grizzly Peak area let's take a quick look at other things. Like themed trash cans. The Jiminy Cricket Environmentality logo still was in use recently and the recreation area logo's subtle pine cone logo adorns the other can...

Souvenirs for the Road

Back when Paradise Pier had a partial Route 66 theme the Souvenir 66 stand was the place to go for all sorts of small items to remind you of your trip down the ill-fated lanes of California Adventure. The new theming is well underway and the stand was in the way, and so, much like the rest of Route 66, the stand quietly faded into history.

Oil and Tobacco

There is a good amount of streetside clutter in Frontierland, including this cart with various barrels, propped up by a crate of Davis Tobacco and some Oil barrels.

You may get...soaked

These elephants greet you at the end of your journey on the Kali River Rapids. They also squirt water - so if you weren't wet enough after the adventure you'll be sure to have one last chance at cooling off before you get back to land.

Prizes, prizes, prizes!

The Games of the Boardwalk are a much need improvement to the old games on Paradise Pier. They are now Disney/Pixar themed and the remodeling done a year or two ago certainly did wonders to the formerly cheesy games - if you are going to have games in a theme park this the way to do it!

Expedition Time

Over the past few years the prayer flags have faded into the landscape - just like they do in real life. On an overcast day it almost makes the mountain and surrounding area feel more ominous...

Golden Age of travel

The is the marker from the California Zephyr - one of the classic streamlined passenger trains that ran to California on the Western Pacific Railroad. The neon works great and at night the warm glow makes on the stainless steel rail cars makes you want to skip the airport and head to the train station.
