    I never noticed this on my trips to DCA last fall! Good work WDI on hiding all that stuff on the roof!

    Wow, that's amazing how they hide that entire thing completely from the public eye. I just assumed the showbuilding was the actual facade, then just a little bit behind it. But it goes behind Screamin'?

    I really never knew that.

Just temporarily draining it (which they will have to do eventually when they change the shows out...which someday they will) putting in what they need to make this one work, refilling it and voila... back to normal. Take out the night show for this one, leave the day show, put it on hiatus during the swap out... clean the mechanics of the day show, spruce things up.

    As for weakest park... the park may be weak right now... but the SHOW WoC is not weak.

    There seem to be several mentions of my statement that it didn't curve. Someone corrected me and I retracted my statement to the effect that it didn't curve several pages ago. It kind of got lost in the mad rush of posts though.

    So yes... the roof does curve and it is that tall.

    I wasn't talking about the installation, but rather if the jets were at water level or slightly below, it would eliminate any possibility of having any of their watercraft in the vicinity, which would effectively ruin their ability to run their outstanding water shows. The day shows would just not be able to be performed if there was a huge plumbing system just below the water surface.

    This is my personal favorite TDS parade, Dramatic DisneySea 2004: Style!

    cool concept but that show stop was wayyyyy too long. ten minutes of seeing the same dance steps by the same group of people with a song that keeps looping is just too much. I do like that OLC used their amphitheatre. DCA's amphitheatre was designed for the same purpose but never used properly by entertainment along with the wasteful backlot stage.


    It will be nice seeing the amphitheater cincrete area turned into something useful along with a lush park like setting. Now lets hope they either use the backlot stage or tear it down and build a new restuarant there in the middle of the area. Hollywood and dine could then be destroyed and used for another attraction spot.

    Ah... yes, I was misunderstanding. My apologies bfdf55.

    In this case, as has been stated, I'm sure they would have their water canon retract further down just as the Bellagio's canon do. This is, after all, not a difficult thing to do. The firework barges in Fantasmic! already do this.

    Looks like the workers were out in the rain today, poor guys, lots of wood being used in the lagoon especially around the stinger.

    Screamin's scream tubes do not match the new color scheme for Mickey's Fun Wheel. They both juxtapose each other in a horrible way. Hopefully they remove the tubes or repaint them to match the new look of the pier.

    They cant remove them. I wonder what color would look better though. White like the rest of the track or a dark redish like other areas of the pier have received?

    Transparent acrylic would be cool.

    Screw the locals and remove the scream tubes. The locals can look at their high property values every time they get upset hearing a faint scream from the coaster. The commotion from the park doesn't seem to bother the guests at the Grand Californian. The tubes are ridiculous looking and need to go.

    Actually, I've seriously been curious about this. I've never stayed there. Is this an issue? Any front desk CMs field a bunch of noise complaints (from the park, not other rooms)?

    Furthermore, those DVC suites are smashed up pretty close to Mulholland Madness, an attraction with plenty of screaming. Will be interested to see how that turns out.

    Considering when DCA usually closes (about 8:00pm) I would imagine it doesn't bother most guests.
    Oo-de-lally!

    This is going further off-topic, but it's amazing how well they have sound-proofed the Grand Californian rooms. I got to visit a room one time when DCA was still open. The room was facing Grizzly River Run. You could hear the water, the screams when people came down the hill and the area music. But once you closed the sliding door, dead silence. They obviously did an excellent job sound-proofing, especially the side that faces into DCA. I am sure it's the same with the side facing Downtown Disney as well.
