Can we appreciate that the Incredicoaster took less time than this carousel reskin. Seriously.
they wanted the budget to be spread over multiple fiscal years so that it comes out cheaper

gotta think like an accountaneer instead of an imagineer ;)

I think the part I'm looking forward to least is that the area will now be saturated with western music, about as incongruent to a seaside pier as I can imagine.

too bad they couldn't make those walls they are adding a bit higher to block the ugly grease stained track supports. Maybe i should wait till they are done because those new walls might be worse than the grease stained tracks.


Seriously though, i wonder what those forms are for? They don't look like anything on the artwork

I hoped Sadness and Joy are AA figures. On the other hand, they would probably break down in the rain.

Speaking of rain, how is Luxo this week?

Probably turned off again for safety, but I'm sure the complaints that Disney can't keep their stuff working right will make the rounds again.
What safety concerns could there be? It's twenty feet in the air. Are they afraid it will become sentient, jump off it's platform, rain sparks on everyone and shoot lasers out of it's light?

Yes.

Actually, I'm just assuming because it's an uncovered animatronic they turn it off during the rain to keep whatever ground fault safety they have on it from tripping all the time and having to reset it. They may get tired of resetting it, so they just keep it off until things dry out.

It's just a guess.....though a slightly educated one. Then again, they may have things sealed well and it's not really an issue and it really does keep breaking down, but they always seem to get it running again, so my original hypothesis seems more reasonable than a simple mechanical failure on a new figure.

Maybe they shouldn't have hired illegal aliens from outside of Home Depot to do their electrical work?
