WDW Update: Spet 10-11   1 comment

The Parks During The 9/11 Weekend

Hi everyone! Back from my trip down to the World with a few pictures/updates and a video to share.

Starting at the Magic Kingdom:

Believe it or not, I only visited the park for an hour this trip. Wow.

The tarps are gone from the entrance tunnel. The 'Memories' banners are MIA.

 

Casey's is closed.

 

Swiss Family Treehouse is under referbishment. The entire area of covered with tarp fences.

 

The maps have been updated to include Tikerbelle's Nook and Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room

 

Now, to Epcot:

Repaving the parking lot

 

Oh, so they are there. Cool. I want one.

But now, let’s get into the park.

Haha, this still hasn't been fixed!?

The Epcot tip board/time board is being replaced by a new HD screen.

The Simon game thingie in the Imageworks was working. I played a few times. It's pretty cool.

New car is so cool. I went 5 times in a row (single rider line=walk on!), and didn't get it. Though it was the car ahead of me a few times.

Canada is currently being painted. The gap in the tarps is for the IllumiNations laser.

 

And now, to Studios.

New to me (even though I saw it last month): Gift shop next to Anaheim Produce?

 

Backlot Tour is closed. Why bother?

 

And to end this report, I’ve a video of what happened on Muppets.

People have been complaining about Splash Mountain for months now, and mentioning a few effects missing from Muppets. But when I walked into Muppets on Saturday, I was greeted not only by a static Penguin Orchestra, but also by a static Statler and Waldorf out in the open. It was very depressing to see.

Once the show began, the Penguins still didn’t retract. Their smoke effects were MIA, as were most of the fireworks. But worst of all, Bean’s curtain didn’t open but halfway. Poor Bean was pushing against the half-opened curtain trying to talk to Kermit.

I’ve never come out of Muppets frowning. Then this happened. Disney, please. Get in there and fix the show.

 

That’s all for this week. Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter and to listen to the D-History Podcast. See ya next time!

  1. I’ve always thought Canada could use a coat of fresh paint. And, my gosh, only one solitary zamboni for the entire parking lot? Coming Soon to an Anaheim Produce stand near you: extended queue for the refurbished and better-than-ever Studio Backlot Tour. Who else thinks Static Penguin Orchestra With Statler and Waldorf would be a great name for a rock band?
