P. 391: All the details about Disney Merriest Nites at Disneyland!

Recommended Posts

^ It could be a large section of (already grown) trees put in front, too.

Most of the art concepts keep showing forest as part of the "divider berm"

between "Rest of Park Land", and SWL.

 

My thought on it.

 

Actually, this is very cool, as they're treating it like the tunnel/archway entrance into

Tokyo Disney Sea. You know it's all there, and you can see some of it from outside the park.

But then you pass through that archway (tunnels at DL) and WHAM!

 

It hits you how amazing it immediately all is. And REAL.

Now picture Star Wars Land, beyond this tunnel. TDS Entry Archway ~ TPR 2007 Japan Tour.

^ More than likely, it's not finished, yet.

I assumed that, I was just surprised/curious that it was visible to the whole park. Seems like a situation where they'd want to put the scrim back up right away.

 

On another note, the park was slammed on Saturday. There were so many people in line for Indy fastpasses that CMs were outside just handing people passes, no need to give them your ticket.

I will say that the 50th anniversary fireworks that they brought back were absolutely PHENOMENAL, especially with them utilizing the Diamond Celebration projectors to put the rides on the castle. I'd probably rank the show better than Disneyland Forever since they have the projection now that they didn't have a decade ago. If you're at the park, it's a cant-miss.

^ Disney may have decided that 'showing off' a bit of what's going on up there, is helpful to some of the public,

who I guess want to see "something" of the ongoing progress, etc.

 

Or like you said, a tarp/scrim just fell off, heh.

Very nice progress. Those "balancing rocks" still get me.

Should be fun to see from the train, on it's route.

 

And I think it's great that Disney is putting some of the "Nature's Mine Train"

into the new railroad route itself. Awesome touch!

Going to the park for a 3-day weekend the first weekend in March. We didn't think it'd be too crowded, but we've heard that Pirates and Matterhorn will be closed, which may make other lines longer. Two questions: One, how crowded do you think the park will be?

 

And two, we have reservations at the Blue Bayou, but Pirates will be closed for refurbishments. Is it still worth going, and can you still see into the ride with it closed for refurbishments?

The first weekend in March isn't typically too bad for crowds. You are correct about Pirates being closed for refurb along with Matterhorn. From the restaurant, you can see the preload queue, the boat launch, and the swamp area. After that, the rest of the ride drops below your view. I'd say it's still worth going, and you still have a lot of rides to choose from. Are you visiting DCA as well?

Yes you are correct. Pirates should be reopening on March 16th as it will celebrate its 50th anniversary, Matterhorn is closed on weekdays at the moment but is open on the weekends. This comes directly from a cast member at the resort. Have a great weekend.

As stuff goes around here at TPR, I'd trust the Disneyland calendar for refurbishment info vs. the dippin dots guy As it currently stands, the refurb list for the weekend of your trip looks like the following:

 

Mark Twain Riverboat Closed for Refurbishment

Pirates of the Caribbean Closed for Refurbishment

Sailing Ship Columbia Closed for Refurbishment

Davy Crockett's Explorer Canoes Closed for Refurbishment

Pirate's Lair on Tom Sawyer Island Closed for Refurbishment

Fantasmic! Closed for Refurbishment

Disneyland Railroad Closed for Refurbishment

Matterhorn Bobsleds Closed for Refurbishment

Pioneer Mercantile Closed for Refurbishment

Mlle. Antoinette's Parfumerie Closed for Refurbishment

Yes, I will be visiting DCA as well. I'll probably be spending most of my time at Disneyland, however, especially with no Tower of Terror. I'm looking forward to seeing the Star Wars Land construction!
