Darkbeer has pretty much covered the (de)construction of this area better than anybody else could, but here are some night shots of the mess down behind the construction walls:
And over at the Monorail station and Winner's Circle: FANTASYLAND MAD HATTER
The Fantasyland Mad Hatter shop is closed. LE BAT EN ROUGE
The Le Bat En Rouge shop in New Orleans Square is permanently closed now to make way for an expanded Pieces of Eight. The Nightmare Before Christmas shop is now where the "Treasures" shop used to be.
Here's a peek inside the completely gutted Le Bat En Rouge shop:
...And a couple shots inside the new location:
An air conditioning vent is dripping quite a bit inside the Nightmare shop so CMs have an empty trashcan propped up in the shelf in an attempt to catch the leaking water. A lot of it was splashing onto the display cases though. BLUE RIBBON SWORDFISH...
This sign just seems strange and out of place, but I guess the lawyers have to do their job, since the Blue Ribbon Bakery sells... tuna fish sandwiches... NEW MERCH AT DISNEYANA
Disneyana continues to get great new stuff... here's a look at some of it:
A new Redhead big fig to match your Auctioneer bigfig ($175):
A new bag with Shag's Pirates of the Caribbean artwork. The bag is rather cheapy but comes with a hefty $22 price tag (ouch!). It closes with velcro located at the top inside of the bag. I couldn't see anybody paying more than $10 at the very most for it. I don't even think it's Limited Edition!
Great new Pirates art by Noah
This was part of the merchandise offerings at the Moonlit Voyage POTC merchandise event, and has now made its way over to Disneyana.
And a new Halloween double big fig. Mickey and Minnie dressed up as Disney villans. They are removeable from their base, for easy decorating. The set is $175.
..And finally, a new advertisement at the exit to the Lion King Tram Stop.
