A special Friday update, but a chance to really look at the new Mark VII Monorail Red, which is still in test mode, and NOT available to guests.



















Here is the a look at the drivers seat...









Of course, a lot more photos of the new Mark VII Red can be found at this link...

And a few non-Monorail photos from Thursday afternoon.


WorldMark, a Time Share Hotel is progressing nicely on Katella


A union protest tried to happen at the Anaheim GardenWalk, alas they failed to file the proper paperwork and were told to leave. Maybe they should have contacted the "Save VMK" folks for the right way to hold a protest...


The new rockwork at the Subs "exit" is almost done.



The Grand Californian/DVC expansion is progressing nicely



And the new "solid" railings for the DCA fountain has been installed.

One quick news update....

Newlyweds Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon celebrated their vows at Six Flags Magic Mountain with an after-hours party that included rides on many of the amusement park’s major roller coasters.

The pop diva and the “Drumline” star rode Tatsu, Superman: The Escape, Riddler’s Revenge, Batman: The Ride and Ninja, among other roller coasters during the private party with 100 family and friends on Tuesday night after the Southern California park had closed to the public for the day.

Mimi told Entertainment Tonight: “I love roller coasters!”
A photo and much more at the link.


That should do it for the Photo update, have a great weekend, and see you here back on Monday morning!

    WOW! That new Monorail train looks amazing... really gorgeous! All they need is something back on the PeopleMover track and the Rocket Jets back above the loading platform, and Tomorrowland will have its kinetic elements back and look so much better... Thanks for taking so many amazing photos... and keep up the great work!!

    Great photos David. Red looks terrific, lets hope they don't go and stick clouds and pixie dust all over it.

    Ooooh. So pretty and shiny!

    Really, the monorail looks absolutely gorgeous. Let's hope they can upgrade the rest of TL to look as good.

    Union leaders know that an arrest or two are much more newsworthy....
