Walkways

At the front of the site, just beyond the Tomorrowland Speedway, many crew members were working on constructing a wood wall.

  1. Nice to see is speeding along..

    on a random thought.. given that the disney parks are meant to be a show, which is why people that work there are called cast members, shouldn’t folks who work behind the scenes, in construction be called Stage Hands.. just to keep it thematically consistant

  2. The grey film on the metal panels are for protecting the finish of the panel from the manufacturer through installation. When they’re removed that is typically a sign that the metal panels have been caulked/sealed up. Love the updates, gonna really feel the excitement once they continue the roof of the train tunnel!
