Hello again everyone!
This past week I've been too busy to go to the park & take photos of the latest construction work but today I had the day off after going to a Garbage concert last night at the Wiltern in L.A. So, here I am with a fresh batch of pics to share with everyone!
The stroller & wheelchair rental center has been temporarily relocated while the building is refurbished
Al mentioned in his latest update that the DLRR will be closing to repair a stretch of track near Critter Country. It appears they've already begun. Today the cast members were telling guests the DLRR will be closed through next week.
The lampposts are being painted gold for the upcoming 50th anniversary.
The Disneyana store on Main Street is currently closed but I don't know why.
The Mark Twain is closed for refurbishment again. It appears to be receiving additional gold paint.
Anyone else notice something that's been missing from the Bat En Rogue ?
In ToonTown Goofy's Bounce House closed for refurbishment. By coincidence it closed the day Al ran his previous update.
The water fountain nearby is being refurbished as well.
The Motorboat Cruise area has been drained. Let's hope the folks at TDA plan to do more than just clean the water.
I believe this is the holding tank for that murky water.
The walls finally went up around the sub lagoon.
Innoventions is still being repainted.
Over by the Starcade there are new exit signs for Space Mountain
As I ate lunch at the PizzaPort I noticed a few areas of the Space Mountain queue being repainted blue.
Over by the Annual Passport Processing Center (Space Mtn. exit) one of the walls now has the sun painted on it.
A portion of the walkway below the Peoplemover platform is covered in tarps.
The Tomorrowland '98 mural was replaced overnight w/ a brand new one that features Space Mountain space stations & rockets.
If you look carefully you can see the the old mural underneath the new one.
The Astro Orbiter queue is being repainted. The ride still operating but the queue has been temporarily moved to the south side of the attraction.
The walls by the entrance of the land have been repainted a creamy white color.
The rocket infront of the Pizza Port is being repainted (is there anything in Tomorrowland that's NOT being repainted ?)
Club Buzz has been refurbished. The stage show is gone but the name remains.
The stage show has been replaced by daytime cover bands. This particular one called " Party Central " was really bad. When they performed a cover of Holiday (sung by Madonna in 1983) the girl singing the lead got the words wrong & the guys singing harmony were singing different lyrics than she was. Eesh!
The snake from Indy appears to be under refurbishment. I spotted it while riding the Monorail.
In DCA the facade for Monsters Inc is starting to get a little bit of color.
Now you're up to speed!
Now, a complaint:
When I went into one of the shops I noticed this particular Jessica Rabbit shirt for sale. I know she's supposed to be a sexy character but I could help feeling that this particular shirt was a bit inappropriate for a family audience.
What do you think ?
