    Construction in the Timon Parking Lot

    I cruised by the Timon Parking Area tonight on my way into the parks and noticed a section of the lot is torn up. Its a strip closest and parallel to Katella Blvd. Could this be the start of the DCA expansion and Carsland?

    I have some pictures I'll post when I get home tonight!

    It is work to increase electrical supply to the GCH/DVC expansion and the DCA expansion. It is a sign of things to come, but nothing major yet.

    Can't wait, Carsland sounds pretty interesting.

    At this point I'll take a "sign of things to come".

    I'll just have to dream and hope that it's a sign of construction for Radiator Springs Racers! I love Test Track and if this has the same ride system I know I'll enjoy it.

    Hey, but these are important first steps. The infrastructure has to go in before the fun work can start. W/O this kind of stuff nothing else would happen.

    It's amazing how true this is, when we built out new office three years ago for the first six months that is all it seemed to be. Dig a hole, fill it up, dig a hole, fill it up. It was like our office was going to be in a basement. Then finally they poured the pad and the building started to rise.
    Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

    First off, I am NOT a Cast Member, or have ever worked for the Walt Disney Company, to make that clear.

    I am currently a "reporter" for Theme Parks including the Disneyland Resort. I do get comments from many CM's who wish to spread some news, but want to remain anonymous. As a "Media" person, I have no legal obligation to let the Walt Disney Company know what is sent in my e-mails and phone calls, based on the First Amendment.

    But Disneyland is part of my "speciality", and I know a lot about what is going on. Heck, for example, a couple of the current Front Line Monorail CM's ask me what is going on in regards to the Mark VII's.

    I don't know everything, and rely on many folks to help me report the current "news" about the parks.

    But there are folks like me, a main one is Al Lutz, who founded MiceAge, and goes back over 10 years, he is the "Dean" of Theme Park Reporting....

    I am just lucky enough to work with/under him.

    Shenanigans.........I call shenanigans, you're psychic and that is as simple as it gets. No insider information, no secret networks or CMer's talking in the next stall at the Dennys. That's it, I'm wearing my hip waders next time I come to this board.............

    Re: Construction in the Timon Parking Lot

    I wonder what this means for my favorite hotel? Will I still be able to jaunt over to the park, or wil I have to walk the long way around? I wonder f their rates will go down-- that would be cool.

    Re: Construction in the Timon Parking Lot

    Even though I'm very interested to see how all this turns out, I can't say that I'm 100% excited with the decisions made on themes. Adding some sort of Disney movie character to everything isn't the way to go, in my opinion.
