    Pictures from 6/24/07 - Ratatouille in the park, Nemo, and Fantasmic!

    At the Emporium on Main Street they added one scene from the movie to their story windows:


    The window of the Cafe Orleans has Remy, Emile, and the best wine ever:




    They're also serving Ratatouille at the Cafe Orleans:


    And they have a little parade to introduce the new characters:








    Wear and tear already:





















    The best job in the park - Ariel's rock:

    I really like the rats too. Very nice work on making them look so much like the movie characters. Also thanks for the Fantasmic pictures, I really miss that show, I haven't seen it since the winter.

    Angry Low Bidder, Low Bidder

    Of course the subs are already showing wear - WDI went with the lowest bidder, and not with the best vendor. They spent more on add-ons and changes than the all-inclusive bid from the best vendor, and ended up spending a LOT more. With, of course, lower quality product. Welcome to the business side of Disney!

    The subs leak, they are not painted correctly, the inductive battery charging system is iffy at best, and the air conditioning is a toxic hazard just waiting to kill all the passengers at once - but it was cheap. 1959 technology recycled - freon pipes running 6 inches over your head - seal the hatches, break a line, everyone hold your breath - or else! And this made it through Cal-Osha?? Oh yeah, Disney wrote the laws.

    Look at the added portholes at the center of the subs - they don't even match the rest of the original portholes. That meant a lot to the best vendor, but meant nothing to John Rice (the bankrupt Aussie who did the work), or to WDI. I know who made the originals - Disney doesn't, and didn't care. Typical penny-wise, pound foolish.

    Would you ride on a boat with a pretty paint job, but no security that the 600 volts DC behind you won't fry your a** because it was done by the "lowest bidder"? I decline that offer, thank you.

    Otherwise, the 'subs' are great.

    Great pics! I always love the Fantasmic pictures.

    I had doubts about Ratatouille, but after seeing a more promising trailer, I've raised my expectations for this movie.

    Thanks for the great shots, Manabyte! I love your shot of the black and white Mickey from Fantasmic and I think it's awesome that they put a bottle of Lasseter wine in the Ratatouille window.
