The new interactive Haunted Mansion queue is almost complete

Detail of some of the new crypts

Notice the raven and the organ from the attraction featured on the crypt

The old tombstones are back in a new arrangement

One little tree is all that separates us from the new area

Glad they kept the old tombstones...

Good to see these again

Some more trees need to be planted, you can see backstage now

New Toy Story topiaries in front of the park

On to Epcot and the Flower and Garden Festival

He really smells like strawberries when you walk by!

Lotso has finally arrived along with an actual strawberry smell!

Lotso looks like he still hasn’t grown in completely, but he had to be put out eventually

New Mickey and friends topiary near the entrance

New Pooh topiaries...although he doesn't have a nose...

Little quotes have been added to the Winnie the Pooh display

Oh Eeyore!

The Butterfly House now belongs to Bambi and friends

The butterfly house is pretty ornate now, equipped with small pond fountains

There’s even a running water feature at the new butterfly house, a beautiful touch

African Cats sand sculpture

The sand sculpture for Disney Nature’s African Cats (in theaters April 22nd) is done

New Lady & The Tramp topiaries

Rapunzel's tower in the Germany Pavillion

Rapunzel’s Tower is new for 2011

The tower plays some of the score from the film. Rapunzel can be heard singing the Healing Incantation, and when she does, her hair

Her hair actually lights up at night as she sings the magic song from the film
