    9/20 Photos - Bill Hill and the Hillbillies are back,Mark Twain is banner free.. more

    Photos from Wednesday, September 20th.

    http://darkbeer.smugmug.com/gallery/1914822

    Billy Hill and the Hillbillies are back, performing in front of the Pioneer Mercantile 3 times a day (3, 4 and 5 PM) until the Golden Horseshoe is reopened.

    A few "50th" symbols remain, but all the mosiacs have been removed.

    The water has been mostly drained in front of the castle.

    Photos of Wallland (aka Tomorrowland), including some new decorations on the expanded Sub Lagoon refurb walls.

    Some Petting Zoo photos before they close next week to be converted into a Halloween Time area.

    The 50th banner on the Mark Twain has been removed.

    More golden things are being removed, including the Golden Jingles horse on the Carousel (they are all white agan).

    Some new things on the Fantasyland Theater Stage, such as a new staircase, but pretty much they are using the old Snow White sets for the new Princess events.

    And more.....

    The Mark Twain's next for a paint change on those stacks, and the outside of the ship to remove the left over Gold. Thanks Darkbeer. Seems like it is not taking as long to take it all down.
    Look forward to the Halloween changes to the park!

    What wonderful photos! Thank you so very much.

    Why are they draining the castle moat? Are there plans to return the castle to the way it looked BEFORE the anniversary over-lay?

    It's been a while...I've missed the old castle.

    I too am wondering why they are draining the water...

    So the mosaic of the 20,000 Leagues is gone. I was in it but since it was so up high, I never actually got to see myself in the damn thing. Anyone know if the mosaics in DCA are gone too? Kinda sad to see all this stuff coming down so quickly. I loved all those mosaics.

    I thought they were going to cover up the castle while they take off the 50th overlay and repaint it before the bubblegum/Pepto Bismol pink came around to return it to it's former look. That's my only guess as to why they're draining the moat.

    The moat is being drained so the equipment can be moved in to remove the crowns and repaint the castle.

    Plus I am sure the moat could use a good cleaning.
