The actual film itself was is very poor shape in May 2013 when I last saw it. It was very fuzzy and out of focus. Has this been improved?

You know what's funny?

Just asked my DW if she noticed anything different (without telling her it was under refurb). She said the quality of the picture seemed a lot better than she had remembered. So I assume they did something with the film.

It looked good as if it was a brand new attraction. Didn't detect flaws in the movie or the show itself. Same thing as with PhilharMagic. But no clue if actually digital now.

If the film quality has dramatically improved as some have said, then it's likely it went digital. Here's hoping.

Disappointing about the nets though. :bored:

I was there Friday afternoon and nothing seemed different besides the fact that Hopper was broken (VO only, no animatronic). Nobody else seems to have mentioned that, though, so maybe it was a one-show fluke.

Well, there we go. :rolleyes:

What was the point of this rehab anyway? Was it only for the safety nets in the Tree of Life?

Isn't that enough for now? That was a major eyesore for the main focal point of the entire park. It's like having blankets of lights draped over the Castle once a year.... wait!

I swear some people would complain if you hung them with a new rope. (and old expression that my father used to say. Don't ask me to explain it literally, but, signifies that some people will complain about everything).

Saw it on Sunday afternoon. Hopper and Flik animatronics were working. Theater effects all seemed to work (bug spray, spiders, water sprayers, etc.) Film looked pretty good but it didn't look digital to me. Can someone confirm if it was converted or not?

The nets were removed along the exit path so that area that runs behind the tree has been completely opened up. Also the planters in that area were replaced with small plants which provides a completely unobstructed view of the tree. Overall the area back there looks much better.

Also the film itself has been replaced, the lights in the show were redone, Hopper and Flik were repainted, and the inside appears to be refreshed/recarpeted. I'm not sure if the show is digital but whatever it is, is a huge improvement over what it looked like before. Basically the show looks like its brand new.
