wheee... sounds like fun -_-...
actually RSR really seems like a lot of fun, and would probably have the most wait times..
I really hope there are soft openings.

I am guessing no. Last summer when we were there the bugs life one was turned off. ...
I don't know why it was off when you went, but it is still there. It was on in May and December (it was beautiful Christmas week and kids played in it, not my kids, but some kids) when we were there last year.

They are currently setting up all the furniture and showed me pictures of pieces in both the restaurant and the exclusive lounge, and they are really gorgeous pieces! Very fitting with the 1920s mission style theme and the restaurant is just sumptuous looking. The exclusive lounge is actually in the shape of a mickey head and the two "ear sections" are two smaller, private areas for VIPs.

We just touched on Carsland briefly, as that is not her project, but she has friends working on it that gave her a quick tour. She showed me a few pictures of the entrance area (not sure which, but I think from the Wharf) that were just amazing. The details are intricate and looks just like you are cruising down a one lane road into this amazing landscape. There are guardrails and other road details similar to the GRR area, but it doesn't feel like a copycat.

Overall they are busy busy busy and really pushing hard to make sure they are on time. All involved are really happy with the way things are coming out and they can't wait for June.
Sorry to ask but can someone tell me what CCT is?

speaking of CCT, does anybody know if they will pump the music from DL fireworks over there so we can hear them while watching them?

No idea. But a better question is will the balconies only be for Club 33 members? There are mixed rumors about this.

Are you sure it's still there? There used to be two, one was right next to the rides (I guess there were two there, one by Flicks Flyers and one by the bumper cars). They were working when we went last September. But the other one was closer to the entrance of Bugs Land and was bigger. That one seemed to be missing when we went. I don't think it's there anymore.

Cars Land Through a Photographer's Lense.

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blo...dventure-park/

In the RSR entrance it has a Single Rider entrance on the far left.

PS. If you are not aware there were many camera crews in CL in the last few days. I imagine tv commercials should pop up soon.

Cars land is looking AMAZING!! It's fantastic to finally see the waterfall, i love the perspective on that pic. I wonder if the RSR vehicle will travel over that bridge or is it just scenery.

I think it will just be scenery. If you look at the bridge on the models, its actually VERY tiny actually!

But yeah agreed, CL is just looking AMAZING!! People will be gawking about this land for years to come! Mysterious Island in TDS is by far the most detailed and immersed land ever built. The rock work in that land has 360 degree views! Its amazing to see it in person!

Just based on the pics here and all we seen, I really do think CL will be the second most immersed area in a Disney theme park. It looks that good!

DCA has come a loooong way from the ugly stucco, cheap facades and bare concrete everywhere!

Princess Dot's Puddle Park is the first area you are thinking of and is still there. The second area with the pipes called Irrigation Station in front of the Bountiful Farm, retail/dining area is gone. Mater's Junkyard Jamboree was built in that second location.

If unfamiliar with Yesterland, this article talks about what was in the area.
