There’s a lot closed

High School Musical 3 will be using this stage until it finally goes away to make way for Disney Channel Rocks

The railings around the Sorcerer’s Hat are being redecorated to provide nicer backdrops for character photos

Walls are up around the FASTPASS distribution for Voyage of the Little Mermaid. Could they finally be removing it?

Toy Story 3 posters are down and Tangled is in at the Magic of Disney Animation

Inside, a teaser poster for Brave has debuted

Nice details…

Walt Disney: One Man’s Dream is closed thru November for major changes

Rumors of a preview center type area being added to the exhibit are all but confirmed by these construction walls featuring upcoming attractions. Here’s Carsland for Disney’s California Adventure

New ships for the Disney Cruise Line

Mystic Manor for Hong Kong Disneyland

Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid for the Magic Kingdom. It will be interesting to see what models and concept art we see when One Man’s Dream returns

Lights are being installed for the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights on the Streets of America

The original Star Tours is gone

No physical changes yet

See you in May…

Toy Story Midway Mania’s recent refurbishment added long gates to prevent guests and cast members from going where they shouldn’t

They create a trap, forcing guests to go into the vehicle

They are on the exit side as well, they just open the opposite direction

Halloween merchandise!!!

Great artwork on the orange shirt!

Happy Halloween in September!
