    I would surmise that it isn't gold leaf. More than likely it's what's called "Dutch leaf" which is an alloy. It looks like gold to the naked eye, but costs a fraction of what real gold leaf does. It was used extensively by the old carousel makers and band organ builders.

    It didn't come out from under the tarps until yesterday, so don't feel bad for not staying long in that area.

    I'm surprised I'm not disgusted. It looks great! I can't wait to see it in person on Sunday. That's going to be one busy day!

    I love what they did with the smoke stacks, it makes the ship look more prestine.

    Thanks for the pcitures.
    Actually those rides vehicles are supposed to get the COMPLETE gold shakedown.

    I'm addicted to Disneyland. Disneyland hobbies are expensive.
    If I become a bum people are going to say "Don't give him money, he's just gonna use it on Disneyland."

    With all this talk of "off the shelf" and "on the back-burner" it seems the only thing that DCA is really missing is the kitchen sink!

    thumbs up here!

    I can't wait until May, I have been shying away from MT for a few years because it looked so beaten down. Looks great!

    Ugh. I have this image in my head of a Jungle Cruise boat painted entirely gold and it disgusts me. I hope they realize that this is a mistake before they do it

    It looks absolutely amazing... just hope the paint doesn't do some cheap chipping or something. Or is it high quality paint they use for their spray painting?

    ...I don't think I have ever actually gotten the chance to ride the Mark Twain or the Columbia.. I do remember going on the raft to TSI, but now I can barely remember the island. I need to go on the Mark Twain someday.

    There is extensive discussion regarding this here

    The gold boat on JC is going to happen as far as anyone can tell, but I haven't heard anything for certain about other attractions.

    as cousin orville said, gold bezels around the light bands would be awesome- with the lights dyed in gold colorine (the dip gel they use to dye the lights for EP).

    the stacks look great, the bands look drab.

    Not a fan of the new look, although if goes back to normal next year than I'll cope. However, as anyone who's seen a 5+ year old car with gold-colored emblems will tell you, they start looking ugly after a while.

    As it is, it looks like someone took the Twain into Pimp My Ride.

    I like the golden stacks and actually think they should probably leave them that way. The "gold" trim on the rails, etc. did look a little dingy to me. I was hoping for gaudy shiny gold-leaf. Hang the cost. This is a multi-billion dollar enterprise. Ah well. As long as they don't paint Tomorrow Land purple again, I'm happy.

    Go to page 30 in that to see computer renderings of the gold vehicles.
