The AP Processing Centers in DL (Plaza Pavilion) and DCA (Greetings) have closed. Guests who purchase an AP now receive their AP right at the ticket gate and have the option of having their picture taken by photopass photographer in the parks or upload a photo from home.
It’s rumoured that the Plaza Pavilion will be the new home of the Blue Ribbon Bakery. It is said it will have a Mary Poppins Theme. (It will be funny to see if they have a Do Not Feed The Birds sign) It is also said that the current Blue Ribbon Bakery will be used as an indoor seating area for Carnation Cafe.
Walls are up around the California Zephyer. The engine car of the train has been completely removed. Disney has donated the authentic train engine, along with other unique historical artifacts that were on display in the California Zephyr storefronts, to the Western Pacific Railroad Museum.
