It's been a LONG time but I'm finally back with another update. Not much going on but here are some pics:
NEW MAIN GATE SCREENS
There was a group of people working on the new entry gate screen at DCA yesterday afternoon BEATING THE HEAT
I guess Grizzly River Run was in high demand yesterday- the ropes for the extended queue was out and it was very extended. HALLOWEEN SHOWCASE
As you all know, the Disney Showcase store has been switched from the one-stop 50th Anniversary store to the one-stop Disney Hallowe'en store. CROWDS!
For the most part, the crowds seemed to be light around the resort - until you hit New Orleans Square. Crowds for Fantasmic!, plus an extended queue for Pirates created a huge bottleneck and frustrating crowd control problems.
These signs arent entirely new, but they've added these new signs around the hub to help with crowd control. They're placed strategically around the entire hub, helping Cast Members direct traffic. DUMBO "DANGLERS" STILL MIA
The "danglers" a MiceChatter spotted missing a while back on these boards are still M-I-A. I wonder whats up with that? ...AND SOME NEW MERCH AT DISNEYANA..
A really cool new sculpture of the skeleton helmsman from Pirates of the Caribbean is coming soon... but is it worth the $299 price tag?
All of the leftover merch from the "Moonlit Voyage" Pirates merchandise event has been dumped at Disneyana. And unfortunately, the merch isn't any better than the pictures of it that were posted on the DisneyGallery.com website a while back. The Aucitoneer & Red Head figurine is really just... ugly.
And lastly, theres a new Tinker Bell shadowbox that prices in at $85. If I was a Tink fan, I'd've bought this piece in a heartbeat. Aside from being another one of Dave's intricate, detailed artworks, it is complete with a really cool animated pixie star field behind it. The fiber optics move around in a whimsical motion over to the little lamp representing "i" in "Tinker" and lights up the lamp. Then swirls around some more. Its really really cool. Tinker Bell fans - check this piece out!
...Alright.. that's it... hope you enjoyed the update!
