On another note, it looks like Eric's Castle is really moving along and I can't wait for all the scaffolding to come down.
Here is a more close up picture of it:

You can see in that photo that the blue roof tiles have shading to them which would lead me to believe that this is the final color. Maybe they felt the red was blending in to much with the red rock work and took artistic license to change it.

That's what I thought as well. That looks like a final product, not primer waiting to be painted. I'm just not sure how that is going to look if they keep it that color. But again, that is probably why I am not in construction .

Hi
We're going in July/August .. any ideas on what will be open, i know none of the major new things will be but i was hoping Dumbo and Goofini will be?? Also just a quick question, where have they moved the fairies to whilst this goes on??

TIA

Info on openings are on the first post... it's best to keep it there as it changes frequently and I can update one place so there is not bad information throughout the rest of the thread.

As for fairies... they are meeting in their permenant location at Tinker Bell's Magical Nook in Adventureland (formerly known as the Veranda).

Tink meets all day, her fairy friend alternates between Rosetta, Vidia, and Terrence.

Here are some pics of TINKER BELL and her friends.

The color is a little baffling. I would have to assume it's going to get re-painted.
if you look at the other two roofs in that picture the red "tiles" come out right to the edge of the window dormers, where as in the new blue roof, there are sill visible edges to the window dormers, so my guess is that the blue part is the base of the roof and red "tiles" will be added and it will wind up matching the other roofs

just a guess though (and hope I worded that in a way that made sense)


edit: nevermind, just saw a more recent picture at the top of this page and there is definite shading, etc. on the blue roof so that does look to be final.

Someone on another message board suggested that this is the castle after Ariel moved in and she started changing things!

So the Dumbo ride itself may be ready to go on March 12th but the circus area is not even CLOSE to being "guest ready". It's just a dirt pile all around it. I'd rather they wait to open until everything is themed.

Although it does look like they're starting to put pavement in. They still have a month.

It's a shame they've built some kind of structure around the Barnstormer's lift hill. That was a fairly nice view from up there.
