  1. Great update! I love the retro photos, a blast from the past! There is so much to see at the resort now with both parks for the Christmas season, I’ve been twice and still need to go back two more times to see it all!

  2. I wish I was there. The Christmas decorations look great! I’m glad to see the Casey Jr. changes aren’t too intrusive.

  3. Great update – love the old pictures of the contruction that is now complete! Keep up the great work! Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. The rails on Casey Jr are done very well unlike Alice! Hopefully they find something better for Alice.

    On a side note, I like the Holiday/ Christmas decor in DCA!

  5. Wonderful pictures! Can’t wait for my next visit.

  6. Great update! Seeing the photos of Glowfest reminds me of the fun time my family and I had that summer. ElecTRONica and the Tea Party just don’t have the same family-friendly feel to us! Wishing I was eating some of the pumpkin fudge!!

  7. Im just happy Casey Jr. is back at going its normal speed. The past few years it has been going incredibly slow. Maybe the fixed the brakes or something.

  8. Love love love all the Christmas decorations!! Thanks for giving the tips of where to look – there is so much it’s easy to miss something! Great job!

  9. -Applause- Love the update. The holidays at the parks are just awesome.

  10. Everything looks amazing we can’t wait to see it all!

  11. Christmas time is awesome!

  12. Thanks for another amazing update and congrats on your anniversary! We leave for DLR in less than 48 hours and can hardly wait to get there!

  13. Nice update.

    I think the bridge widening could be better. The railings and new brickwork destroy the scale.

  14. Another great update, thank you Andy!!!

  15. Wait… huh? the new terrazzo floor outside the Carthay looks just like the old one… that they completely ripped out! I figured they were replacing the slippery material with concrete or something (guessing it was a safety concern). Any idea what this refurbishment was all about?
