    Re: Disney's California Adventure Project Tracker III

    Awesome! I'm wondering what they're gonna do with the ferris wheel...like the queue isn't getting the boarkwalk extention around it anymore, so what are they going to do to make the queue more friendly?(if they do anything at all) Because frankly, that was the part I was most excited about. I could care less if they add on a giant Mickey face.

    btw stitchon, you're sig is amazing!

    Early could essentially mean any time during the 1st quarter of the year, so really they have almost 2 months to start that in still.

    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

    Re: Disney's California Adventure Project Tracker III

    With all of the "changes" and "unknown's" listed, I wouldn't hold my breath for any of it until I actually see it happening.

    But at least it's a step in the right direction.

    Albeit baby steps.

    Perception does become reality...

    I hope that the boardwalk around the wheel will still take place. That concrete is just so ugly.
