Disneyland’s iconic Adventureland sign returned after a month-long renovation project that saw the Anaheim theme park widen the notoriously crowded entryway to the tropical land as part of park-wide effort to improve pedestrian traffic flow.

The renovated Adventureland sign that returned Wednesday reuses portions of the entry marquee, Disneyland officials said.

Disneyland replaced the 1990s Adventureland archway marquee with a nearly identical sign that stretches all the way across the entry pathway.

Disneyland crews hustled to complete the Adventureland entryway expansion and other enhancement projects throughout the park before the May 31 grand opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. All of the construction walls associated with Project Stardust are expected to come down by Friday morning.

Project Stardust — a mash-up of Star Wars and pixie dust — takes a comprehensive park-wide look at operations, infrastructure and crowd management with an eye toward improving efficiency, traffic flow and access.

The support beams in the middle of the walkway passing under the Adventureland arch were removed to free up foot traffic and restore the entryway to its pre-1990s appearance. The support beams created an alcove that often served as a shady gathering spot for visitors and further clogged the already congested Adventureland entrance. The similarly designed new Adventureland sign stretches further across the entryway to allow for greater traffic flow and eliminate the pinch point.

Disneyland has been sprinkling quite a bit of construction pixie dust on Adventureland, one of the most crowded lands in the park.

To help reduce crowding, the Dole Whip stand in front of the Enchanted Tiki Room will be closed on busy days, with fans of the popular treat directed to the new stand in Tropical Hideaway. The new grab-and-go food stand that opened in December doubled the seating available in Adventureland and made the claustrophobic jungle-themed land feel and look bigger.

The strollers that regularly crowded the center of the walkway passing through Adventureland were pushed to a space once used as a grab-and-go food stand. Storefronts next to Bengal Barbecue have been converted to seating for diners.
