    Re: IASW construction

    Good to see they've gone to the effort of having a themed construction wall!

    Are guests still exiting the Fantasy Theatre via the normal route that has been made smaller or is there a temporary/new exit in place?

    In the same way, out the way you went in. Does that make sense? But it's so dark and spooky now with the wall up. (Maybe that's attraction #23, the spooky passage to the golden mickey's) Seriously, the fence takes up so much room, traffic flow between the mickeys and Chopan's restraunt is only about 4 feet wide at most.

    Yup, that makes sense, thanks!

    I'm surprised by how far out into the walkway the wall is extending, the Tea Cups must be a different experience now as well.

    What happens through that area at the end of the parade?!?

    nothing special~ people rush into the theatre after the parade as usual..
    area between tea cups and the wall does not change so much~
    just the view from the train in this part is affected.

    ORDDU: Hmmm...my sisters and I are rather surprised to hear that Clopan's restaurant--known as Festival of Foods, I believe--would have any construction walls near to it in preparation for SMALL WORLD. Frankly, we had been under the impression that this newest attraction for Fantasyland was located further to the left--over by Mickey's Philharmagic. We DID expect the show building to come close to the Storybook Theatre. But there is also some vacant land to the left of the Fantasyland Train Station that we assumed would be the entrace way for Small World.

    Re: IASW construction

    is it possible to have two roads for dispersing guests?
    the vacant land of Fantasyland was rumored to be reserved for Pater Pan's Flight for a long time...

    Re: IASW construction

    I just came back from the park today. They are ripping the tracks out around Teacups to Storybook Theatre to build an underground passage into the attraction.. You can really see the construction been done if you walk in to the Golden Mickey's. That's why the Railroad runs one-way from Main Street - Fantasyland station only. I talked to the cast member there, it won't be finished construction until August so the railroad will only operate 1/2 the park.

    If you came to watch the Golden Mickey's, the entrance is the exit now. The normal exit for Storybook Theatre is now effectively blocked off for construction of Small World.

    ORDDU: Hmmm....very interesting. Now, in regard to the potential Peter Pan attraction, my sisters and I had always heard there was an existing indoor 'pad' reserved for that particular item somewhere inside the same building that Winnie the Pooh current occupies.

    ORWEN: And there's another indoor 'pad' waiting for a dark ride inside the same building that houses the Mickey Mouse Review.

    Re: IASW construction

    ORDDU: Another thing that seems rather odd is the fact that we have Disney's latest theme park--only open for less than two years--and already they're having to close down the train, along with ripping up asphalt that hasn't been there very long at all, in order to dig up ground to make a passageway under the tracks. Talk about poor planning. Didn't they know they'd be expanding outside the train tracks right from the beginning? Even if they didn't know for certain about adding Small World fairly soon after the park's Grand Opening, they certainly had to know they'd be adding SOMETHING outside the tracks at some point. Why not just create that tunnel immediately--to be ready for use as soon as SOME attraction had finally been decided upon?

    Interesting stuff.

    How is this multi-directional operation managed?
    They're obviously only running one train but does this set simply push backwards from Fantasyland through Adventureland to Main Street or have they marshalled a loco at both ends of the train so that it is being pulled back to Main Street? I'm not sure what railway laws and rules HKDL has to abide by but I know back home that you aren't allowed to shunt a train backwards with passengers onboard.

    A Disney train with a loco at either end would make for some interesting photos!
    I don't believe they have turning facilities on the HKDL network so any loco attached to the back of the train would be running backwards as it pulls the train back to Main Street. Though considering the engine itself is in the "tender" of these fake locos the power would actually be coming from the front of the train for a change!

    The loco works the "normal" way from Main Street to Fantasyland, then push in reverse from Fantasyland to Main Street. They do NOT have two locomotives on, attached to either end.
