    Gorgeous sunset Dreamlights shot. Surely they are just about done showing them?

    Tangled--certainly the prettiest toilets in the MK.

    I love watching coasters being built.

    Great to see the Splash refurb is at least somewhat extensive.

    Thanks for the pics!

    I'll be at MK this Saturday. Tangled looks great. A bit bummed with all the tarps and construction, but I understand. I'm taking my cousin for the first time (She's 25 and from out of the country) so it should be fun either way.

    On an unrelated note, I was at MGM this past weekend and met John Stamos. I saw that someone else saw him at MK yesterday. According to Wiki, he paid 30 grand for a lifetime pass to Disney?

    Thanks for the update. Great photos.
    That mine coaster is HUGE! It certainly didn't look like it was going to be that big when I saw it mid-November.

    Loving the Contemporary in the second, third and fourth photos. Really hope some landscaping obscures those views!

    The 7DMT is looking better than I thought. Many have been calling it a "C" at best but I have a feeling that the theming/landscaping etc. might kick it up to a "D". I'll be seeing it firsthand in a couple of weeks.

    Great pictures! I really liked the one with the curve of the SDMT coming over the construction wall. It is exciting to see that take shape. Also, cool picture of the Tangled tower; I'm impresses by the level of theming going into that area> Thanks again for sharing with the board!

    Contemporary will be hidden when it's done, as best as possible. They're still adding trees in various places around New Fantasyland trying to hide Space Mtn and the Contemporary from the sections that are open. And thank you for proving a point in a discussion I had with someone whose name gets mentioned around the boards from time to time recently about this very subject. Great photos.

    I thought about taking some similar pictures. If I see anything worthwhile I'll take one and upload it to this thread or whichever thread is most relevant.

    I only hope that seemingly extensive work on Splash is going on indoors as well.

    Quite a bit more track than the last 7DMT shots I saw. Nice to see some progress!

    Not sure about the lifetime pass but I'm pretty sure he bought the old Disneyland sign before DCA opened. Big Disney fan.

    Anyone know when the MK Christmas decorations are coming down? Nothing like hearing Christmas music and seeing decorations on January 8th. Seems like they've been pushing this back later and later, even into marathon weekend. Note to Disney - the holidays are over, lets move on.

    I would very much like the Snuggly Duckling to be added in there.

    When I was there last week I asked about the decorations being up after New Years and I was told they would be up until Epiphany which is January 6th. Maybe the castle lights stay up longer since they are like winter lights.
