JACK'S COME ABOARD!
New billboard replacing the Turtle Talk with Crush billboard at the Mickey & Friends tram stop. THE MAD HATTER RE-OPENS, EXPANDED
The Mad Hatter has re-opened on Main Street, and has expanded it's shopping area out into the Main Street Opera House's exit lobby. Its kind of awkward from an Opera House's guest's point of view, but its quite nice from a Mad Hatter shoopper's point of view... STAR TOURS ENTRY MARQUEE RE-INSTALLED
The Star Tours entry marquee is back, and would have just been better off completely removed. There isn't much need to have a digital wait time display for this attraction and it could have survived just fine with an old themed sign on a stand like what Pirates uses. Unfortunately the big monstrosity is back up. They've replaced the temporary blue signs they had up over the FastPass distribution signs (and that I posted a photo of recently) with permanent versions. You can now see the backlighting at night. They don't look temporary anymore, but they don't look good. But thats a matter of opinion, I suppose. PIRATES INVADE NEW ORLEANS SQUARE!
Here are a bunch of pictures of the new Pirates stage, Pirate face characters actually on the stage and around the area, and a photo of the new Jack Sparrow face character (now with eyeliner!). VAULT 28
Construction progresses on the new Disney Vault 28 shop in Downtown Disney NEW ART IN DISNEYANA
There are some AMAZING new Enchanted Tiki Room paintings in Disneyana. They're amazing and I hope they put these on a print-on-demand system or release smaller prints... they're amazing, but very pricey.
Koro - $1,700. / Maui - $1,900.
Kina Kaluua - $1,900. / Tangaroa-Ru - $1,700.
A new painting of Walt that I thought was nice:
And the new Dave Avanzino piece is out - Critter Country. New Orleans Square and Toon Town should be out soon.
...And a new window display for Pirates is up in The Bank Of Main Street's window:
