Well, I remember seeing concept art back in March showing the Tinkerbells on the gold lampposts along with flowers and the 50th logo. I doubt it was an afterthough. They always do something to the lampposts for celebrations like this. Remember for the 45th the had the golden banners coming down from a cool "45 Years of Magic" logo with the the Castle and fireworks (including the Mickey shape) above the Castle? Those were nice..
I know, I saw the artwork too. However, I know with an intimate certainty, the hasty and disorganized fashion in which this particular project came together. So, I am just going to be happy with how nice they look and worry about semantics.
Not so sure about the weird flower pot photos though... I withhold judgment on those.
OMG... i wish that I could be there to see them before the end of the year... I am so worried that if i go later on in the celkebration that a lot of the stuff will be gone and I will have missed out on my chance of a life time...
i really like the tinkerbells... i think that is does brinf the whole theme together... I think that it could also inspire a new treasure hunt game where you follow the traces that tink left arount the park... maybe they could even put signs that tink just left the golden cars... like put a little statue of her sitting somewhere admiring her work or something... that would be really cool and tie the wholw thing together..
I love it!!!! I didn't read all the way through the thread at first to see the picture!!!! OMG I can't WAIT to see everyting one it's done...gold vehicles, lampposts (they were priming some of them when I was there a week and a half ago!!! I'll try to get the posts when they are lit tonight. YAY!!!! I can't wait!!!!

Oh how I love my DSL (only a couple of weeks old). Yeah, the flower pots are a little clunky. They kind of blur the delicacy of the victorian-style lamp posts...BUT...all the rehabs and improvements in the park are so welcome. It is looking very nice, indeed!

Um, what's with the new flower pots??? Granted, I haven't seen them yet in person, but I don't like what I've seen in the pictures!! I suppose I'll leave judgement when I see them tomorrow when I'm in the Park.
Personally, they could have just left the flower pots off and kept the Tinker Bell & pixi dust by themselves. By the pictures, it looks too gaudy now! It looks too over done.
