    Sadako's "Because I have nothing better to do" Tidbits - 2/13/07

    I needed away from the computer screen I live for so many hours behind each day, so off to DLR I went!

    I came in through Monorail Purple and decided to take a quick look at the dry crevice that has become of the sub lagoon.





    As I entered a lineless Space Mountain, it seemed Lightning McQueen 'spaced-out'.



    I somewhat felt the lights were a little lower than the last few days. I wasn't able to see the Peoplemover track... although to the side of Astro Blasters, I noticed work lights on inside that portion of the long since used track.



    As I came through the hub, I thought the castle would be tarpless, but alas, no such luck.



    Into Fantasyland I went because I had a craving for Mr. Toad...

    I could make a joke about this... but I'll play innocent for now.



    It looks like Paul Pressler and Cynthia Harris were in a meeting to discus coming back to DLR



    I wonder where I could find Frogberto...



    Not so imposing in the light, now are ya Mr. Train!



    My favorite store, the Princess Shoppe is now behind refurb walls.







    It seems the castle refurb is now blocking the Villains greeting area and the road to Tomorrowland.





    And for those wondering where the Peoplemover track is inside Space Mountain... here's some visual aide...

    Good stuff.

    Mr. Toad could use a little sprucing up.

    That castle silhouette in the tarps looks cool :P I should make it into a logo of some kind..hmm...

    And 4th turn meh =P P.S. You want to look for it in the 2nd middle track under the Geodesic satellite. you can see it from the long straightaway track on the bottom but it'll be over your heads at that point.

    Is that a ballooon^^^? Why do balloons get stuck on the SM ceiling? If it is a balloon, it will be there for many months.

    Thanks Sadako!

    Thumbs up Re: Sadako's "Because I have nothing better to do" Tidbits - 2/13/07

    Great update! And Mr. Toads is getting a refurb of sorts, so we'll all be able to enjoy the "trimmings" this spring... That's why I'm postponing my b-day trip until then. DL isn't the same without it (and THM, and POTC, and Peter Pan, and Space Mountain, and...) ALso, completely forgot about the Peoplemover that went through SM. Thanx for reminding me how OLD I am...

    Regardsarama,

    Jon

    PS. Sadly, Splash Mountain will be closed when I go in April, but I'll be back in November to see "Nemo" anyways...
