Talk about taking a second glance

Yes, that is the Disneyland Monorail you're looking at! Though I'm a bit late on the reporting, the Monorail had a change of color schemes for the grand opening of Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage. Imagine taking a ride through Disneyland on that!

Aerial Disneyland: Tower of Terror

With technology becoming more and more advanced, it's become easier than ever to "spy" on different spots in the world, Disneyland Resort included. I don't know about others, but I enjoy spending some of my free time looking at aerial pictures of the park and its neighbors.

I'm sure you know what I'm talking about - Google Earth, Live Search - and I wouldn't be surprised if you've looked up 'Disneyland' before, too. If not, I'd like to enlighten you of some of Disneyland's hidden treasures.

First in this feature is the Tower of Terror. From a guest's point of view - while in the park - the attraction looks innocent enough (as innocent as a Tower of Terror can be, I suppose). When glancing at the building from a "bird's eye" view, however, it takes on a whole new light.

What's going on here in the back of the building? As you can see, there's a medium-sized parking lot, along with a large section of building that is definitely not a part of the ride.

Despite being the Disneyland Expert, I can honestly say I'm not 100% sure what's going on here. I assume it's for cast members, but I still find it odd that there is a parking lot in that spot, out of all places. Also, I'd like to know what's going on in the part of the building near the lot...

Just two more days

In what has undoubtedly been one of the most talked-about Disneyland attractions for a good two years, the opening of Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage is just around the corner.

On June 11, the much-anticipated Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage will open to the public. The ride, which replaces the classic Submarine Voyage (1959-1998), will have a similar theme to the previous attraction but with a Finding Nemo storyline.

Workers on the ride are finishing up last-minute jobs and preparing for the opening day, which Disneyland fans predict will be extremely busy.

The queue area is complete and the construction walls are down - now all the attraction needs is you!
