Removal of the Cinderella Castle Dreamlights is in full swing


Cinderella’s rented crane returns for an annual visit

Legacy FastPass machines and signage are now vanishing from the park

After 11 years, there is no more FastPass signage or machines at Mickey’s Philharmagic

The screens in the finale of “it’s a small world” have been covered up again for some reason

Perhaps until they are ready to start working with MagicBands

Work continues on Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, the tarps remain under the bridge still

A look through the peep holes…

Walls have also gone up across the way now as they finish up some pavement work

Plenty of fake trees now cover the mountain

Looks like some more greenery will be appearing soon

The entrance structure seems to be complete

The rain did not give us a clear view this week :(

The crane, ruining vacation photos since 2007

Yes it is too bad that they could not take the lights down after close. They just need to bring in some hi power construction lights.


"The crane, ruining vacation photos since 2007."

This is, perhaps, the best caption I've seen for a photo. Ever.


You can always eliminate the crane using software. Panstoria has great software as an inexpensive price, this is the one I use and it works great in getting rid of objects (people and things).

Great pics regardless of the crane and the rain. Thanks


I hate that stupid crane… luckily it has never made an appearance in any of the picture I have taken :-P
