New Resort Logo
The Disneyland Resort has a new logo. It was first spotted on the front of Anaheim Resort press kits.

The logo, of course, does not include the yellow
writing in the background that's been mostly cut-off

New Monorail Station
The Disneyland Monorail has returned. The new Monorail station, serving the Disneyland Hotel (and soon Downtown Disney), reopened on Friday, March 3rd. The Tomorrowland Station is also under some construction - including the installation of an elevator - but that hasn't been completed yet. Because of the Disney's California Adventure construction the Monorails are running one way only. If you board at the Tomorrowland station you must get off at the Hotel and vice-versa. They are also running bi-directionally which means only two Monorail can operate at once. Wait times can be up to 30 or 40 minutes.
Note: There are no ticket booths at the new station, so if you don't already have a ticket you'll need to take the tram in and purchase a ticket at the front gate.
