    Right on! I was there yesterday too - and posted a Trip Report. I agree - it was a pretty 'dead' day - not a lot of people at all.

    Part 2 of 2

    Back to the update....

    Yesterday, although not crowded, was turning out to be a warm one...




    Tough to tell if this is more refurbing or someone getting ready for those canon balls that are supposed to be coming from Priate Island. Is this one of the proposed targets?




    Speaking of which, work was continuing unabatted:








    I'm still trying to figure out what this is...






    And I keep trying to get a clear shot of the work being done on the cabin. So far, no luck.




    As Mastergracey and others have pointed out, the raft dock is out from behind the fence:




    Testing continues on Splash and the water is also back on in the water wheel:






    One of the Disney princesses makes a break for it:




    Are the purple banners on the castle new?




    Here's a shot from January. When did the banners go up?




    I took off for DCA around 11:00 AM. Did I mention there was not much of a crowd yesterday?




    The Food and Wine Weekends banner is up:




    Along with some additional banners throughout the park:



    Grizzly peak in the morning sun:




    With the day warming up into the 80s, yesterday was a good day for the rapids.





    That's all for now.

    This morning was great for characters - Brer Fox, Peter Pan, Alice, Ariel, and the Mad Hatter, were all out walking around. I'll have pics up later.

I think the floor replacing job for the Penny Arcade, although simultaneous, is not geared for the premiere but is purely out of necessity. But that's just speculation on my part.

    localdisneyfan, no offense but the color in your photos looks unnatural. Did you alter the saturation?
    No offense taken. I've been experimenting with different tools in Photoshop since I'm already using it to reduce the photo size and crop, etc. Depending on how much of a hurry I'm in when I'm taking shots, I'll simply use "auto" which on my Nikon d70 leaves my shots a bit overexposed in bright sunlight. Most of the color boost in the shots above is actually from triming a bit from the brightness and boosting the contrast. I have found that using shadows/highlights will also change the color of my shots quite a bit as well. And I'll also add a bit of saturation here and there, though "unnatural" isn't exactly what I'm aiming for. I'm still dealing with sharpness issues as well, and one of these days I hope to have it figured out. Daddyb mentioned recently that his prowess with photoshop is one of the ways he gets those stunning colors in his desktop updates. I'm nowhere near that, obviously, but through trial and error, I hope to get closer.

    Good call. I did walk through Fantasyland and it was fascinating that no matter how empty the rest of the park felt, Peter Pan still had it's 40 minute wait, the Dumbo line was spilling way past the chains, and the storybook canal boats looked like at LEAST a 30 minute wait. I'm thinking that with kids who are 5 and under, there are only so many rides that they are interested in, and most of them are pretty much in Fantasyland and NONE of those rides are what you would consider a high capacity ride. Thus....even on a day like yesterday, the wait times are still up there.
