More water has been drained from the area closest to Tomorrowland Terrace. We can see the barrier has been removed and another one set up farther back. The ducks seem to be missing the water.

Although the Hei Hei Cone has returned to Adventureland, our beloved spitting camel has not. The dry area has been overtaken by strollers.
