    Gran Fiesta Tour- New Sign and update

    Since MILF soft opened this week, I decided to zip on over to the Mexico pavilion to see if Gran Fiesta Tour might be secretly open. Well it wasn't, but, I noticed the tarp over the archway looked a little different and new, and I thought that I saw the word "Gran", but it is of course dark in there.

    So out came the flash camera!! (Thank You WDW for using really cheap, loose-knit tarps!)

    Closer:


    And This has appeared outside for the Flower and Garden Festival:


    In other opening news: The CMs that I could grab said that they were told that if any soft openings are to happen, it will only be one day early. However they did say that the ride has been filled with water and they are test running the boats around. Also mentioned was that the queue is the biggest part not ready.

    Yay me! I've never started a thread before, please be gentle if I did something Wrong

    I do not know, all they said was it wasn't done yet. It's Probably just redecorating to fit the new theme.

    Re: Gran Fiesta Tour- New Sign and update

    Great first thread!

    The sign is alright....Not great but, it could be a lot worse. That queue was so tiny, I wonder if the new ride will have a big enough impact to bring major crowds. This is a ride I'm really unsure about, I'm completely on the fence.

    It is just how I predicted the sign would look in font and sizes.

    I wonder if they will keep the original design of Jose with his cigar.
