When we were there this last week, the big wall fence in NOS started from the very edge wall of the French Market and went all the way around the entire front area of the HM. What are they doing to the FM? Anyone have any thoughts?I just think it is odd that first they changed the menu and now it it totally closed.
:confused3

I just looked at Disney's schedule on their website, and the French Market is scheduled to re-open on the 20th of this month. So you will be good to go Jade, when visiting in Oct. yay! :)

Here is the Sept. schedule for Disneyland (http://disneyland.disney.go.com/disneyland/en_US/calendar/daily/daily?name=CalendarDailyPage&date=20080911&span=10&parkDCA=true&parkDLP=true&parkDTD=true)

A couple of weeks ago, on a private tour our CM told us that the kitchen in NOS was going to be renovated. All the NOS restaurants share this kitchen except Club 33, which has their own. So maybe that's why the French Market is closed. Just guessing.

I heard about this too, and I don't think that it is a good idea. That is such a quiet and pretty little corner. Its not like DL needs another merchandise location!! Especially in NOS!

The more that I think about the court of Angeles changing into a outdoor canopied market place, the less that I like the idea, for it is nice to have a more quaint, and quieter location for shops, as it is now,in NOS, a covered market place I see as being more in keeping with Adventure land, I don't believe that the real New Orleans Square has this type of market place, I would love to travel there, and to Louisiana otherwise, I just have not had an opportunity to do so yet. For all that I have seen in film, photographs, travel documentaries, I do not recall seeing that type of market place for our time,maybe in the 19th century, it existed, however some of the shops have more of a 20th century ambiance and decor about them, not ca. 19th.
Oh well, it should be interesting to see how it all goes, maybe at some point, it will be changed back, to the way, it should be kept, in my opinion. Maybe we will all love it, however, I am thinking probably not, for I love how NOS is now, and has been for as long as I can remember, regarding Disneyland.

Isn't that for the repaving work?

What kinda bites about this renovation too is that New Orleans Square train station is closed so you can't get off there, only at Main Street, Toontown and Tomorrowland. If you are on the train at New Orleans Square it still stops there to keep the flow of the trians on schedule and if you look between the seams on the temporary walls in places you can see what they are doing. I do hope they don't cause this area to lose it's serinity and ambiance with the changes.

Which area is the "court of angels"? Is it the whole shopping area that loops around the back by POTC exit, or is it the "courtyard" with the beautiful staircase, etc... that is back there?

I found a couple pictures taking through the construction walls around HM, in one of the Newsy "dateline disneyland" updates on micechat.


OK I just figured out the gate thing. It's a bad bad sentence.

The slurry extending from one spot to HM's gates will be removed and replaced.

The gates aren't being replaced. The walkways are.



This is the sentence: "Slurry in New Orleans Square extending from New Orleans Square Train Station to Haunted Mansion gates will be removed and replaced with themed paving."

I had to read all 13 pages, going backwards, of the Disneyland project tracker on the other site, until I finally heard that sentence correctly in my head! And that was only b/c in all those pages, no one had asked why the gates were being removed, and that would NOT be like those m'chatters at all. :)

Bumbershoot, you are just great!:worship: I swear, you have cleared up so many things for me here! Thank you so much. I am so glad that they are not removing the Gates.
Whew!:wizard:

I'm just sorry I didn't catch that floopy sentence to begin with! Sentence diagramming was never my strong suit, but sometimes I can catch those things since I sort of hear sentences that I'm reading.

Didn't stop me from a typo in my last post, but oh well. :upsidedow
