    While I always understood the need for the riverside stairs leading to the Gallery, and thought they did a nice job with them...I always thought they looked odd and somewhat unnatural to the architectural styles of French Quarter buildings.

    I understand that many might like to see them stay as a reminder of the old Disney Gallery. But if they've decided never to use that space publicly again...might as well chop them off.

    But I'm not totally convinced Disneyland will be removing those stairs. We can only wait and see, or wait and hear.
    Never again wil the entrance to Pirates of the Caribbean really look like the stately manor it originally did. The footbridge and outdoor queue area ruins that, with or without the Disney Gallery staircases.

    I'm indifferent to the stairs being there or not, but seeing them go would sadden simply because it would pretty much guarantee the Disney Gallery (or any sort of public access to the Royal Suite) will never return. But I'm no longer entirely convinced the stairs are going to Yesterland, either. After seeing them in the daylight and seeing primer sloppily painted over the scars where the handrails were attached, it seems like the stairs are just getting some TLC. Looks like we'll just have to wait and see for sure though....

    Don't think anyone's really sure what's going on with them. Rumor has it that they will be staying but the other rumor has it that they're going. So we'll see.

    If they are removing the stairs, why take the time to remove just the railing first? Seems like they'd just tear the whole thing down at once. I'm betting they are putting a fancier railing up.

    With the Bridge over the Pirates entrance, the curved staircase
    entrances to the Disney Gallery added some of the charm that was
    taken away by adding the "overpass". I really think the staircase
    should remain, as it adds more detail to this beautiful area.

    Any new info/update on the staircases? Although I'm sure if they came down, it would have been posted already.

    I'm at the resort right now and i'm not sure if this has been confirmed or not yet by someone else, but I was told by a very reliable cast member last night that the stairs are indeed coming down and the only way to get to the dream suite will be via the new elevator.

    So when they put the Disney Gallery back where it belongs, they will have to rebuilt the stairs. Foolish mortals.
