Signs of progress have peeked over the trees in Fantasyland to reveal some updates to the hills of Toon Town! The hills have begun to be painted with a slightly new color scheme that makes the mountains have the illusion of being farther away. – https://www.micechat.com/328501-disneyland-update-summer-flare-and-halloween-scare/

Guests who visit the resort next year might notice something different about the cast member uniforms. A new nametag, will feature a character chosen by the cast member themselves from a list of hundreds of characters offered by Disney.

Tomorrowland has become a little more constructionland as walls have gone up around a few areas of the land. The walls are still up around the entrance area, covering a small building, the Buzz Lightyear and Star Tours FastPass area is also behind walls. The Tomorrowland – or Magic Eye – theater has it’s queue walled off as well. – https://www.micechat.com/328501-disneyland-update-summer-flare-and-halloween-scare/
