    Anyway, thanks for the great shots, and I hope folks also take the time to check out the rest of your update on your Dateline Disneyland blog.
    The "Work Walls" from the Plaza Pavilion were gone on Friday ;D

    I think they were only there for a promotional picture. There are three brothers (Jonas and Duck):

    Nick Jonas - Huey
    Joe Jonas - Dewey
    Kevin Jonas - Louie

    I'm saying that it is probably ONLY a promotional picture so Hewey Duey and Louie will probably not make it out in the parks.

    I understand why the picture is with The nephews.

    Great photo update, MasterGracey! The Paradise Pier Lagoon looks a little eerie with the water level that low. But I'm just as eager as everyone else to see the construction for the World of Color. Thanks for all the photos!!!

    MasterGracey,

    Thanks for the great report and photos.

    My kids asked me yesterday where does all that water go when Disney drains a big lagoon like that. I didn't have an answer for them. I hadn't really thought about it until they asked.

    So...where does it go? Just down the drain?

    How long will it take to drain and how long will it take to fill again later? Anyone know how much water the lagoon holds? Come on, help a dad look smart for his kids.

    Why do people blame WDI? They have a budget to follow from higher-ups... right?

    Anyways, seems like they clean the concrete exposed from the lagoon draining every night. There used to be a lot of scum, hats, sunglasses, phones, etc. Now it's all gone.

    This is inline with previous comments about keeping the facelift from being bad show. So long as they don't put up walls, the night shift will have their work cut out for them with regard to getting the newly-exposed portions of the bay cleaned up for the next day.

    I don't know about putting construction walls all around the bay as that would require a ridiculous amount of wall. I wouldn't be surprised to see some serious tarp/scaffolding combos appear (similar to what covers buildings on Main Street during construction) to cover up the installation of WoC, though.
