The Tron-o-rail eludes us again….

The rest of Main Street looks bright and new thanks to the facade refurbishments over the last year

Ariel’s Grotto closed yesterday to make way for the Fantasyland Expansion

Scuttle’s Landing closed a little early

Scuttle is looking for a new home….

Goodbye DVC booth

This store will look a little different in a few months
