    May 16 - Photo Update - Pirates are suffocating NOS, Subs and more!

    A Day in the Park


    With MasterGracey busy with school, I decided to head down to the Park today to check things out a bit and saw that quite a few things had changed in 2 days. So here's my attempt at an apprentices photo update.


    Pirates Invade the West Side


    Guess what's flying on top of our new mast??!!


    and a more generic version on top of the rafts now too!


    Progress continues as time is ticking away until the premier this weekend...
    They are getting the bridge built from the island to the bleachers for the stars to cross...
    There are cannons EVERYWHERE on the island and lots of props that look like a ton of old shipwrecks.








    They have opened the barrier into Smugglers Cove and now the new shipwreck is now in water!


    The bleachers have gotten out of control in NOS. They are now about to enter the River Belle Terrace! The path to the POTC line is so narrow that maybe a double wide stroller could fit through... MAYBE! There seem to be more bleachers than last year.




    You can barely see the Mark Twain now that they have covered the back end in camo netting!!


    Frontierland


    A walk by the old Mine Train tunnel shows that the tarps are down and there is water back in the pond. The water is clear enough to see the cement and rocks at the bottom of the pond. I wonder if that was all just about cleaning the water?! Did anyone notice that they removed a tree that was planted right in front of the tunnel and now it is much easier to see into?!?




    Sub Lagoon


    Some barriers were out around the lagoon but for what reason?


    Some divers were there today. Looked like they were having fun while working!


    And of course the subs!!








    Main Street


    While leaving the Park I noticed that the tarps were down around the Disney Showcase building


    and Main Street was as busy as could be due to DCA just closing! Yuck!


    All in all, it was a good day at Disneyland. I can't wait to go back!

    Wow...you weren't exaggerating! It's like NOS doesn't even exist anymore with all the stuff in there; it's all covered up!

    Thank you intrepid photographer for this report!

    I hate the heavy flow of bloody trafic beacuse DCA closes way to early, you would think that the normal operation of a park adjacent to Disneyland would at least stay open till the same time. AARGGH

    There are a lot more seats this year, remeber all the seats they sold? They had to go somewhere.

    Thankfully this is the last one... for now anyway.

    Hey guys! Thanks for the kudos.

    Yeah, it is quite exciting when things like this happen in the park because if you go there as often as I do, it is thrilling to see what they are capable of changing. I am sure we will all be amazed at the finish product that stage will bring and the fact that it is temporary makes it all the better!!

    I am a little sad though that pirates are taking over most of Tom's island but I think that they will have done such a good job with the whole thing that we will be too giddy to miss him. I am secretly just glad that they took them out of NOS where swarms of people would gather to see them.... I'm glad they have their own place now.

    Does anyone know how many seats were sold for this years premier?? (compared to last year)

    Excellent report and great pics! Thanks for sharing with us. You really got to hand it to the hard workers that put all that up. Just 1 very short week to sort it all out and get it up and running. Not bad at all! We were astounded to walk in one morning and half of Green was up and about 30% of the screen just over night.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter
