    Gotcha. That pic was taken when the scaffolding was in the process of going back up. Printed scrim is in place now.

    Do you guys think the scrims/walls/scaffolding will be gone by the end of August? It's not at all a big deal if it isn't, just curious. Bringing my parents for the first time. Too excited!

    Any update on the walls in front of the emporium? I leave on May 25th with my family who hasn't been in forever!

    Still there today. You can see the window displays if you walk underneath them though! And they have the photo-scrims up too.

    Heaven forbid they work on anything ... but it does seem to be taking them a while. However we don't know that it's just painting.

    Thanks for clarifying (mostly for those griping). I figured it was more than just painting.

    Ok, so what else are they doing? Why the coyness?

    I'm griping because of the time it's taking. To have such a large scrim up on the first thing you see when entering the park for such a long time (twice this spring) is pretty ridiculous.

    I love that they are doing maintenance but what could possibly take this long?

    I believe this work is a restoration rather than
    general maintenance. Seems they have done this with all of MSUSA over the last several years.
