You all get a shinny star. Yes, Red was missing and the center display case was missing due to a signing event. Oh, and people. haha...
You know, it wasn't the lighting that was the worst part in front of the castle. It was the jack hammers. They are very loud. kinda ruins those final moments people have in front of a uncrowded castle taking that perfect family/jump/solo shot. Its my understanding the original dance floor will remain, so they are probably starting work on the center piece.
Didn't we hear tools being fired up in the race to finish the Paradise Pier Gardens during park hours as well? I guess I have no problem with this. Yeah it's kind of annoying but my first reaction wouldn't be "Wow, they could've started a little later when all the guests leave"
I would like to add that those pictures are so vivid, brings out the colors!
Great shots here, OP. I agree with you about the jack hammers, and if they really need to get started that early, close off that entire area of the park early and just get people out of there first. I can't imagine trying to listen to the music loop on main street and having jack hammers going in the background, not to mention that lighting. At that point, your atmosphere is completely shot and you might as well be out on Harbor Boulevard. I understand the need to get work done on schedule, but for gosh sakes....just close the park at 10:30 or 11....or move the start time of the work. In either case, the guests need to be OUT of that area before work begins.
I'd say as soon as the park closes, fire up the jack hammers. The park is closed, should they wait around until the last guest lingers out at 1 am? At least its not like at a night club where they suddenly turn on all the lights. Imagine main street at midnight and they kicked on all the work lights. That would be kind of funny.
Back to the pictures, does anyone know if Fortune Red is coming back??

This makes no sense, the park in not closed at midnight. The ride lines close... but guest are still enjoying rides, shoppers are still on Main Street and Photopass is often still on-hand to take castle photos. If the park really truly "closed" at 12 then they would have to start corralling people out much earlier. Guests are still experiencing, and allowed to experience, what they paid for.
There is a reason they don't turn on all of the work lights in the rides at midnight! People are still experiencing the magic!
