Disneyland Construction Photos (2/20-2/21)

Here are a few construction pictures from this weekend's trip to Disneyland.

At Disneyland, the biggest construction zone is the Rivers of America, which are down until May 6. There are also construction walls at the restaurant portion of the Tomorrowland Terrace, which is closed through July 2. Captain EO is scheduled to open February 23, but you wouldn't know it by being in the Park.

Over at DCA, testing continues on the World of Color with the platform still in "maintenance mode" during the day. Construction continues on the Orange Stinger replacement, Silly Sympony Swings, which is scheduled to open at the end of April. The Golden Zephyr is down for a seasonal refurb until April 2.



I'll post each area of the Parks in a separate post.

Rivers of America
The water is still drained from the ROA and will be until early May. You can also see that the tracks that the Mark Twain & Columbia travel on are missing.

Tomorrowland

The Tomorrowland Terrace is going through a LONG refurbishment (July2!!!).




Captain E-NO - Captain EO is scheduled to open February 23, but the casual Disneyland visitor wouldn't know it.

Non-construction/New Stuff!!

New Fence on the Bridge to Frontierland - The entire bridge was replaced recently and this new "kid safe" fence was added


Princess Tiana's Mardi Gras Celebration - This show played several times this weekend in New Orleans Square. The first show we saw, Tiana sang several songs, then took pictures and signed autographs. The next show, she only sang one song, then went straight to autographs.


New light fixtures in the Casey Jr/Storybookland Boats area - According to a CM at the Storybookland Boats, these were added within the last week and were meant to look like buttons on the existing patchwork quilt....I don't get it.






New doors on parking lot trams

Ugh. I don't get it either! The lights ruin the pretty quilt.

Thanks for all of the updates!

I don't like these doors, it looks like it will make it a lot more difficult for those that have had slight trouble in getting on and off the trams before, i.e. those with limited mobility, that may not need a wheelchair. I am afraid that this will result in more people using the wheelchair ramp that don't need to, which will make a longer line for the wheel chairs (unless they have added even more wheel chair shuttles).

In addition, who opens and shuts the doors? Since it appears that the doors are not automatic, I assume that either the guests or a CM has to, but they keep so few CMs on hand at the tram loading and unloading areas these days that it is impractical to expect them to open and shut them all before guests just go and do it themselves (or at least try to).

I can see these causing a backup for the trams, especially at night when there are already huge lines for the trams filled with tired people. I can also see guests who don't want anyone sitting next to them closing the doors behind them when they get on the trams, again causing more delays to either reopen the door or by the trams not being filled to capacity. I have seen 30+ minute waits on a regular basis here lately (not that I would wait in that, i would sooner go and sit on a bench till it dies down, which it will do eventually, I have learned not to leave right after fireworks, parades, shows, etc. But I am guessing that this may increase it to a 60+ minute wait and the waits won't be able to die down as quickly as they used to.

Oh well, I am going a week from tomorrow and I guess I can see how these work or don't work for myself, as I doubt any lot besides Mickey & Friends will be open on a Tuesday night, I try to avoid the parking structure whenever I can these days, it is a long walk to the far back corner that they always seem to want to park me in and then lately 1/2 of the lights are turned off or burned out causing a safety issue, add to that the tram issues that may arise from this and I can see that the structure is not where you want to be parked if at all avoidable.

Ok, that's my rant and I truly hope that I am proven wrong somehow, but I doubt it.
