    Lightning fast TR from TDR 6/12

    Hi all, went to TDR yesterday.. this is what I saw:
    -Crowds are back again. TDL was very busy with many stand by lines posting on average 60 mins. TDS.. slower but nevertheless busy with a little crowd.
    -Lots of closures at TDL and TDS right now... so beware if you are going this week. TDL.. SM, Pinocchio out for refurbishing. Several facades getting facelifts. Stage for Monsters Inc Club show is being installed at the castle forecourt.
    -TDS... JTTCOTE is closed for rehab. Again, many areas of the park under facelift refurbishing. Over at the Aquasphere, the fountain statues of the characters that have been there since the 5th anniversary have been taken down and the Aquasphere is back to it's virgin state.
    There are other things going on but my time is limited right now. Will commment further as time permits... and you can always check the weekend updates on Micechat's home page for photos from TDR.
    Thanks.

    Eddie: You mean to tell me you could have taken your hand out of those cuffs at any time?
    Roger: Not at any time. Only when it's funny.

    Too bad they took down the character statues from the Aquasphere-I loved the extra touch and elegance they gave the Aquasphere-

    Were the panels around the Aquasphere depicting the various lands within Tokyo Disney sea removed as well? I don't remember if they were always there, or were added for the 5th anniversary.

    Yeah, it's totally clean. I miss them, too. But I also think the Aquasphere itself seems more grand without all that stuff around it. It's a different feeling, and the pristine simple look is new for me. I like them both, so I guess I'm happy about it. I imagine they'll do something new in 2011 for the 10th Anniversary anyway, so it's nice to see it in its apparently original form. I didn't even know those sculptures were from the 5th Anniversary.

    I'm happy the Auquasphere is back to normal, I always liked it that way.

    Me too. Special decor is great and TDR does it better than most parks lately.. but once the special events are over.. so too should be the decor.
