    it'll be the same statue from the meet-and-greet but with a new non-fountain trident. why make a whole new statue when that one is ideal.

    We need an insider to settle this, I wonder if there is one around that could clear up the whole statue thing, as I am sure that this would not be privileged Disney Info.

    All the reliefs are up on TLM building along with the shell that will hold up triton! A lot of details are emerging left and right from the building. Also trees have been planted in the new Duffy meet and greet area. Looks very nice! It's amazing what a few trees does to an area. Sorry no pics, was working.

    What is going to happen to Duffy's current Meet N' Greet? Will it just be left there?

    Thanks for the update! Sounds like the new meet-and-greet will turn out very nice

    Or we could argue about it for the next few years?

    I have no idea, I imagine the face painters will just move back in. I'm just quoting what Al said, he said the Meet and Greet is moving to that area so Mickey can join him.

    My money's on a new Triton. Not because I think it's the better choice necessarily, but I think it's just what I would imagine Disney to do.

    Can we just go back to arguing over the "green beam"?

    Re: Disney California Adventure Project Tracker XI

    Not that more speculation is needed, but here's a couple reasons why I think the statue is NOT the fountain statue:

    The fountain Triton appears to be metal and hollow. It might be difficult to attach it to a roof structure like on Mermaid. Plus, a metal statue would draw lightning, and therefore would have to be grounded with lightning rods (more work). The fountain Triton also would likely not meet safety standards for a roof installation. In its old location, an earthquake that might cause the fountain statue to break would do no damage to guests. However, if placed on the roof of the mermaid building, if a piece breaks off, it could injure guests.

    I think those reasons alone would be enough for them to build a new, fiberglass or plastic statue that would be more durable, lighter, safer, and easier to install.

    New Triton. The statue is precariously placed on the arch and the fountain statue would be off-balanced.
