    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.

    They should put in the trellis (shade structure) that was shown for that location in the early model for paradise pier:

    I haven't seen anyone mention it yet, but the giant bear outside GRR switched out his orange vest and blue helmet for forest green and brown ones instead. Checked out green raft #14 and yep, it's nylon bags and plastic jugs have been replaced with canvas bags, canteens, and burlap sacks with first aid decals and the like. The fastpass machines also got these new decorations on them.
    Also, the new stained glass design on TLM looks great! I totally thought a clock was going there, but this is just fine.

    These look great. Some much needed detail for that side of the building.

    The scaffolding there might relate to the boardwalk planks being replaced overhead. They might also be doing some painting on the wall down there. I think any work done on the wave machine would be done backstage or below the water, not up on scaffolding.

    My guess is that they aren't going to run the wave machine any more because the waves would affect the WoC platform. Not that they would ruin it necessarily, but the constant motion would eventually produce unnecessary wear and stress on the hardware.

    Love that stained glass they installed! It gets me really excited for the marquee of the attraction and the glass doors.

    Thank you for the Pics Dlandresortcalfan! The stained glass looks beautiful! I can't wait to see the big one installed on the front of the building. I think with TLM building is that they keep it nuetral except for the little details that will really make it pop.

    @ Sir Didymus, thanks for sharing the info on Grizzly! I've love to see pics if anyone can get some.

    Pieces sure.. but people were trying to say the whole building was done in Egyptian style and that is simply not the case. Even then I think she was discussing the accessories (and colour) of the building more than the actual physical structure.

    Yes the scaffolding is directly related to the work up top. Nothing is happening below construction wise or anything else.

    Yes. I think it goes without saying that this is Victorian architecture.

    What kind of victorian? Oh, the kind with lots of winks and nods to Egyptian.
