    Thank you so much for a wonderful update Cory with some really stunning pictures. Those Main Street on Morning pictures were glorious, it really had a glow about it, you captured it well, thanks so much for sharing that moment with us all.

    Splash Mountain and Chick a Pin Hill inhabitants look incredible! Almost as if the Song of the South animation truly burst into the real world. Well done to TDO Imaginners, and I hope that TDO NEVER let it get in the dire and sad situation it was in like before EVER AGAIN.
    Thanks for a great read, look forward to the next one! -Q

    Those Splash pics are gorgeous – I really hope they can keep it up this time. LOL@ the animatronics may have been replaced – I think we know better, but as long as they’ve been rehabbed we should be good.

    LONG overdue on plastic passes, especially in humid Orlando. I wish I was a WDW passholder just to see some of those old animatronics on display! I love that they did that for you guys – I always assume WDW doesn’t keep it’s history backstage but this makes me think that maybe some pieces are still there.

    Glad that Splash MTN is out and looks fab; also glad that WDW APer’s are getting plastic AP cards, hopefully on the custom image side of the card, TDO will include more characters to choose from (even if it’s temporary.)

    Fantastic update and phenomenal Splash photos. That is what dark ride photography should look like. Maybe one day I’ll be able to get shots like that.
