    I was wondering when we were there yesterday and found out the barriers and mesh on the monorail platform were coming down that night, who would be the first to get pictures. I guess you win, and the pics are great. Is the lagoon lit up at night with underwater lighting. The dock looks nice at night, but what about the lagoon itself?

    Great TR! Thank you thank you thank you! Those pics are better than questionable websites!

    Okay... I need to get out more.

    From the looks of it, the handicapped accessible room might be pretty durned cool, too.

    This is too exciting! I sure I never lose this feeling of excitement. Maybe a trip to Neverland would help, I refuse to grow up. Now Neverland Ranch, I hope to avoid my entire life.

    The underwater show lighting wasn't on when I was there... I haven't seen it on in quite a while, actually. But it does exist... I've taken pictures of it on when the lagoon was empty, and again, when it was filled... but the pictures are kind of awkward cause they were taken when the walls were still up.


    Apparently, another site has caught the lights on though - and it looks amazing.

    I can't help but think those pictures would look better with a working People Mover. Still, the area is looking better than it's look for over 10 years.

    Could be worse, at least it doesn't count days.

    With the Monorail zipping by overhead, Subs manuevering through the Lagoon, and Autopia cars cruising through the roadways, I've thought the same thing. We were talking to a Monorail CM earlier, about the Subs and everything going on, and peoplemover1 said "All that's missing is the PeopleMover!" and the CM said "Yeah, that's all that's all we need until we're back to normal!"

    C'mon, Disney. It isn't like we don't see the track overhead. Stop letting the dang thing rot - you saw what the rotting Sub infrastructure and show did at the Subs - and how much money it cost to bring it back to par ... Stop letting the same happen to the PeopleMover track. It's only going to cost you more in the long run.

    From what I can see of it, they're not letting the tracks rot exactly. They're keeping them well-painted and the structure is sound. They're just not maintaining the Rocket Rods rail down the center. Even that still seems shiny enough. My guess? It's because they don't want it to collapse atop someone.

    True. However, I'd like to know the quality of maitenance for the portions of track that run through Tomorrowland buildings. Also, much of the track that runs over Autopia hasn't been painted or touched in years -as its still sporting its faded bronze color scheme. The only area of track that seems to really get attention is the portion that runs down the center of Tomorrowland, and the part right next to the Monorail station - and that part only gets its Rocket Rod track dolled up every now and then because its really hard to miss when you're on the Monorail.

    So, start a "Rescue the PeopleMover" fund to pay for the refurbishment and changes for DOSH standards.

    I'm sure many generous MiceAgers will be only too happy to contribute.

    Or maybe Disney should levy a surcharge on Annual Passes to fund it.
