Brian Martsolf’s December 2008 WDW Update

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Our good friend Brian Martsolf (of Big Brian’s Disney Page) has provided us with some photos taken during Mousefest 2008, so lets take a look:

The Viking play ship outside the Norway pavilion at Epcot is now completely gone

This is about the only remnant

You can see where the new wall begins behind the grassy area

Some shrubbery has been placed in the space, as well as some lampposts

The area feels much smaller now

Some flowers planted

More flowers

Don’t think I’ve ever seen a Shades of Green bus before

New holiday cups are in use at counter service locations, also utilizing the last of the Year of a Million Dreams food wrappers

Some nice plants around the Partners statue at the Magic Kingdom

The trolley even gets decorated for the season

Over at the Grand Floridian, they have added a fake mast to the Lady Useppa pirate ship used for the kid’s pirate cruises on the Seven Seas Lagoon

We end this small report with a great clothing suggestion for those of you worried about getting seperated in the parks. 

Thanks for the Update Brian!
