    So I'm guessing that they'll just be painting the wheel in wedges and then rotating it to work on the next segment. That would explain how reinforced the scaffolding is out into the (dry) bay. It can't be attached to the wheel if the wheel needs to turn. No matter what though there's no way you could get me out on that scaffolding!
    I'm literally a born Disney fan! I was born at Providence St. Joseph Med Center right across the street from Disney Studios in Burbank. The same hospital where Walt died.

    I don't know about that.^ When I was there on Friday, there was scaffolding going through the wheel, so unless they plan on removing those to rotate it, they are probably going to just work their way up. And there are probably safety issues with moving it with all the scaffolding there.

    They sure seem to be taking their time to remove the sun face.

    It will come down at an appropriate time based on the order that they need to get things done. They're not taking their time, they are probably trying to have a crane on site for the least amount of time possible. So when they are ready to do eveything they'll need the crane for, they'll take down the sun. Most likely, they'll also put the Mickey in place right away too so the crane can be done and move on. Each day a crane is on site is expensive.
    The Mickey audience is not made up of people; it has no racial, national, political, religious or social differences or affiliations; the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world-wracked human being which makes us play with children’s toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, and sing in bathtubs, and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know…the Mickey in us.

    Good chance they may take down the orange as well on those days.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    He does have a point here. That was a huge structure, this is just a face that's just probably a flat panel.

    As for the scaffolding, they only need to cover half the wheel; all they need to do is rotate the wheel when the section is done. For the slats going through the wheel, they just take them out when its rotated.

    Common sense!

    The Epcot wand didn't require the time it took to drain Paradise Bay, nor did they need to build scaffolding for the Epcot wand removal -- it was all done by crane.

    whats the rush to have the sun face taken down anyway? There is still plenty of other work that is being done. Besides the mickey face will probably be one of the last things they install.
