WDWNT Podcast staff member Chris Lastrapes just returned from a short two day trip to the Walt Disney World and has some interesting photos and video clips to share with us:

At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, preparations have begun for ESPN the Weekend

Is it just me, or has the Sorcerer’s Hat looked spectacular since it was re-painted?

The stage in front of the hat will host a number of ESPN television programs

Chris said the parks were very busy

The sign on the ABC Commissary has seen better days

The exterior of the Superstar Television Theater looks very nice in the evening

That large screen looks great! Any chance that could be installed in my living room?

In case you missed the many months of coverage for the American Idol Experience, here are some interior pictures

Briefly moving over to Epcot, St. Patrick’s Day merchandise has flooded the United Kingdom pavilion

Moving to the Magic Kingdom, the same can be said at Ye Old Christmas Shoppe in Liberty Square

Construction of Stitch’s Supersonic Celebration continues in Tomorrowland

The first video clip shows construction of Stitch’s Supersonic Celebration from the TTA

These two clips show demolition of the Galaxy Palace Theater

Even though Pecos Bill’s has re-opened, El Pirata remained open through heavy crowds

The hub was empty, but Main Street U.S.A. was full of people

I don’t think I’ve ever seen the sprinklers turn on during park hours…

How often do we end a photo report the right way with a picture of Cinderella Castle? Thanks for the report Chris!!!
