    The dome is gone! So is the fire escape that held the sign.

    Aw heck. I get why Disney's doing this, but it just doesn't seem fitting.

    THIS IS HORRIBLE, why get rid of a landmark attraction and re-marvelize it? ohh sorry its not modern enough. ive heard guardians of the galaxy is a great film but does it warrant a theme park ride?

    The crane is back tonight on the Mattercam. Lots of floodlights, and some workmen on the roof of Tower of Terror doing workmen stuff. Apparently more things are being removed from the building.

    I wonder how long this will take before they strip it of anything valuable and then put the scaffolding up?

    At this rate, I expect the scaffolding to be up either next month or November

    On my way out of the resort early Saturday morning I noticed scaffolding up on the left side of the tower (when looking at it from the park). Shocked how quick things are happening!

    Once the conversion really gets moving, it will be really interesting to watch and see the progression of the tower from a consistent angle.

    I didn't realize this was already started. Sad time indeed.

    No scafolding yet. No real changes I can see last night when I was there. The doors still open up as usual.
