Spent a few hours at DLR on Firday night and earlier today (Sunday)...

* Spoke with one of the conductors on the DLRR. I asked about SM and he said that they are trying to get a soft opening for sometime before May 5. Not sure , how reliable that is, but it certainly beats hearing it opening sometime in November. Also saw the new SM sign. Looks pretty cool. Saw another thread on the subject. I'll be sure to check it out.

* Innoventions is still under wraps. Not sure how long it's be like that. Don't really care to be quite honest.

* Noticed that Jungle Cruise was down for refurbs. Also notcied a sign posted off to the side near the ride's exit. It said something to the effect of "something Gnu" (a play on words) was beiing added and that the ride would reopen in the spring. Not sure what that's all about.

*The crowds at both DCA and DL are beginning to get pretty thick. Not sure if this is due to Spring Break or what. Not too bad, but wonder if this is a sign of things to come.
