Is that even Intamin track? I thought Intamin track was a little taller and had more bracing.

^That is the new loop. It has been back stage at Disney for a while now. They are fully replacing the loop with new track all together, and its actually already back up there. Screamin' will reopen Saturday October 15th.

I visited the parks yesterday and saw something interesting at the bag check area.

A young couple ahead of me in line, were pulled aside by Disney security. The Disney personal wanted to see the guys camera and what photos he had just taken. The Disney security ask why were they taking pictures of their security check procedures, to which the guy said that he was just taking random photos.

The couple were accommodating to the Disney security request, but I could have imagined that others would not have been so. The couple were sent on their way, but you could tell that they were a bit put off by the whole experience.

As for the parks, a nice quite off-season day. Though if you were visiting Disneyland for the first time you may have been a bit disapointed, because Pirates was down for refurbishment, and both Space Mountain, and Haunted were closed to receive their holiday overlays.

Disneys Construction Adventure (DCA) continues at a rapid pace, they have topped of the Carthay Circle building, and the shops are well underway for their redue.

All looks good, bring on the Holiday Season!

I love donkeys more than me.

I know this isn't the Disneyland official thread, but I'm not sure one exists, so I'll post it here :)

I just wanted to say that I very much enjoyed the 'Ghost Galaxy' rendition of Space Mountain. I have not been to the parks since before California Adventure opened, and it was a pleasant surprise to experience an old favorite with new everything and even a holiday overlay to boot :)

Anyway, back to DCA talk :b

I love that sexy intamin loopiness...Question about Screamin' while we're on topic, how long had Disney been planning to replace/update the loop?

Not sure exactly but considering ordering a piece of track like that would take at least 3-4 months to get I would imagine. Very good question indeed ;)

Fellow Disney Nerd.. you did not inform me of this.. :cry: Glad I haven't been there lately - I would have been disappointed after finding out that CA Screamin' will be closed for so long.

Oct. 15th? I guess I won't need to go to CA Adv until then, other than to get a WOC fix.

:p

Edit: As far as the loop track replacement, is it just a standard wear-and-tear issue, or were there any major issues with it?
