    Does anyone know if any visible work has been done to the orange?

    It's going to be really cool to see the construction crews take apart the orange. And it's going to be even better to see them change it into SSS. The only problem I feel they are going to have with SSS now is the wind/rain. If it's windy the ride won't be operational and if it rains I doubt that many people will ride it. But other than that I think this is going to be some very nice lipstick on a very ugly pig. I'm excited to take a spin on it when its done.

    Kind of like how those with FastPass hang around the attraction entrances waiting for their time window?

    Unless something has massively changed since Fantasmic! openned, I don't know that there is much Disney can or will do other than just deal with it the best they can. People used to wait 6-8 hours during Fantasmic's first summer, weekend after weekend. Many attempts were made to control the throngs of people wanting to see the show its first year, but nothing really worked. Whatever happens with WOC, it's going to take some time to get all the kinks worked out of guest control.

    I've been to many parks with swing rides and I've never seen them shutdown if it is windy. Why would that be the case at DCA?

    This is true, the Golden Zephyr is unique in its sensitivity to rain. The swings should not be effected in the same way by wind. Yes, you will get wet when it rains.....but that is a fact of life with theme parks.

    I'm excited for the swings and elevated boardwalk area. This corner is going to look so much better and so less "2001 Six Flags" once the orange is gone. I bet the orange will take a while to go away. I see them slowly taking it apart piece by piece.

I realize the crowds would then be dispersed onto the sidewalks and main corridor, but at least it would only be that way for a half hour or so.

    If I'm not mistaken, do they not open the Fantasmic arena at WDW an hour or two prior to showtime? Fantasmic at DLR is a different breed all together.
    Even with the sweeps, there would still be people lining up right behind the ropes, waiting to race into the viewing area. But this may be the best suggestion, if they ca organize a line path that doesn't block anyone's path. Sort of reminds me of how they organize the crowds at Epcot's candlelight Processional.

    As for WDW's Fantasmic, there is no one allowed in the arena, or even on the path to the arena until they open it 1-2 hours before showtime. Even there, I assume they have a small group of people waiting at the arena gates. There is no real reason for anyone to be back near the arena prior to showtime, unlike the ROA area and Paradise Park.

    Has anyone heard anything about a re-theme of the PP Hotel? I'd really like to see a victorian-ish theme to match the new PP... could turn out to be very cool.

    Yes, it may be that simple, but I think when you put it in the right setting it can look elegant and romantic....plus, it will still look 100,000 times better than the Orange Stinger...

    I agree that it will look infinitely better than the Orange Stinger, but at the same time, I still don't see a lot of "Disney" in it. Perhaps I'm being overly critical because Paradise Pier is supposed to reflect the old seaside amusement park rides of the past, but part of me was hoping that Disney could come up with something a little more creative.....a little more....."Disney" than just a paint job an a very common ride system.

    Lightbulb Re: Disney's California Adventure Project Tracker VI

    I've never personally had a problem with people squatting for a good spot to watch a parade or show, except for when numerous groups of people grab tables at the restaurants that face Fantasmic!, without any intention of ordering any food. On any relatively busy evening at Disneyland, it becomes rather problematic to find a table, at any restaurant within eyeshot of the south end of RoA, to sit down and eat at, beginning as early as an hour and a half before the show starts.

    On one occasion, a few years back, I was at Disneyland with my daughter and we wanted to get some food, then go find somewhere to stand and watch Fantasmic!. After getting our food at the Harbour Galley (I think), I wandered for better than a half hour, looking for a table at more than one eatery, finding that better than half of them were taken by people that had not actually purchased any food, and most of the rest were in use by people who had finished their meal but were staying in place to watch the show. Luckily, we came across a kind family that offered to share their table with us. I think they stood out in stark contrast to the numerous people who simply looked at me with tray in one hand and my crying, five-year-old daughter holding on to my other hand, and didn't even consider giving up their seats.

    Personally, while I think that camping out a spot in a viewing area is just fine (as long as there is enough area restricted to allow walking traffic to get through), I think that Disney should reserve tables at restaurants for the use of guest who need them for actual dining. Now, if someone were to purchase dinner, then stay a little long at the table, to catch the show, I think that is fine, too. At least then, those guests would have a reasonable claim to have needed the table in the first place.

    Actually that's the prototype of SSS. WDI has been planning the big unveiling of this ride since 1972 when the first Wave Swinger opened.
