The access road may be marked for construction traffic but it appears there will be a guard shack and a bypass to the existing guest entry point. this is why the roadway is divided and there's an off shoot. Having worked at studios I know there has been talk and desire for an alternate entrance to backstage areas so i really would not be surprised to see this entrance become a permeant fixture.

So are you thinking the guests might accidently enter the construction road and then need a way to get back to the guest entrance?

P&F still meet on Disney Cruise Sailings. But as they always say. Entertainment is subject to change.

Yeah, was pretty much only on the Fantasy, and even that has already been subjected to change. If you look at any recent navigators from cruises, P&F are no longer listed. Nor are a lot of the more interesting characters, like Genie, Dopey, etc. The Fantasy used to have a pretty good assortment, but all the endless hours of ticketed greetings for princesses, Frozen, etc have eaten away at that.

I agree.

Even though Disney is saying that everything back there is already closed, the Cars M&G is still running today. Guess they hadn't relocated them yet and thought it was better to reopen them for a day to handle the increased crowds for the last day of the Lights (Joffreys and P&F are still done for, though)

There's really no reason not to run it until the walls go up. All it takes is one cast member to run. You can probably expect this to be the case until the morning of the 11th.

Photo update as of Thursday, Jan 14. With the announcement that the character meet and greet along Hollywood Studios Streets of America would be closing, here is a photo of the long construction wall that borders the walkway. As of the date of this photo, the meet and greet sets were still in place behind the wall. The construction wall runs from an outside wall of Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano (viewed here in the distance).....

to the theatre where the Frozen Sing-Along first appeared (behind the San Francisco street scene).
