    Oh, you're VERY good. I salute your superior acquisition skills (It's late and I'm being lazy). Thanks!

    If I hear the audio correctly (and the closed captioning didn't really help) it appears that they call the "toothpicks" they referred to "tab arms" or "tabs" for short, and the mesh panels we see going up on the towers now, "chips". This is new to me.

    You don't want me to tell you what the [cc] app did with "crevasses" on one occasion.

    I wonder if the rock work on the spires will go all the way around them.

    Seems like we will have to enjoy these construction videos while we can. Once they put up that back wall, I don't think we will have as much to look at.

    True! That video was great as well. It's surprising to me that they can get such clear shots of the rockwork from in between those panels. Fingers crossed Disney doesn't cover those spaces up!

    Same! Sometimes there are pretty nice knotholes in the fencing...but yeah, she has found a nice spot. I think she shot another video from somewhere else inside the park too. I'll find it.

    Edit: Eh, its just some more peak work taken from near the Golden Horseshoe.

    I do admire her work. Her dedication to pointing her camera at the construction from the top off the parking structure is impressive! I wouldn't have the patience lol

    Not only are her videos super detailed and thorough, she does it routinely and doesn't bog down her videos with talking and idle speculation.

    I know! And she films in the cold and the heat, she's very dedicated.

    And that's exactly why she is our favorite lady blogger. She's smart, fun, gracious, and savvy. The type of person who would make a perfect dinner party guest. Unlike some other bloggers... :rolleyes:

    Gotta believe they will...at least for the highest parts. Not sure about the lower parts.

    I imagine the views from the Fantasmic viewing area and from portions of the HM area and into Critter Country will be "disrupted" by parking deck views for a good 2-5 years until the new trees get taller and match the height of the TSI trees more closely. Its the growing pains of getting such a huge new expansion. I'm willing to accept it based on how nicely the Grizzly Peak area grew in for example.
