Water jets were also being tested, and yet still not the highlight of Harmonious testing that we got to see occur.

The Three Caballeros have still yet to return and with spring slowly coming to a dwindling close, we wonder if maybe they aren’t migrating back until the summer.

On closer inspection, the flooring around the archway has been cut up only meaning one thing, more construction work is obviously about to take place.

On the bridge in the Italian pavilion, posts are slowly being painted to match the rest, leaving a beautiful marble finish that shouldn’t be taken for granite.
