What about the Crane for the Light removal at MK? Has that started?I'm interested to see how long the crane stays for, as that will probably be a good indicator of what is being worked on. On a purely selfish note, I'm also happy that they waited a few weeks to do this after my trip...I'd have hated to have had the crane in my ToL pics.
This is planned work. It has been on going around the structure for nearly a year now.Very curious that this would be done during the day (on stage if you will) with a boom lift. It seems like this is probably more for repair (emergency if done during operating hours) than a planned upgrade or work.
EE at night is awesome! I was there for an after hours private event. In fact, the whole park is really nice after dark.For me I can't wait to ride Everest in the dark. I feel so many rides at Disney take on a different character at nighttime I can't wait to burst out the mountain for that split second and see Animal Kingdom lit up. I wonder if Lion king and Nemo will run later shows too...and if there will be any performances on the streets at night.
I rode EE right at dusk a few years back when they did evening extra magic hours. It was really cool but there was a really weird smell...I assume some type of spray/fertilizer they put on the vegetation at night?EE at night is awesome!

When I worked there as a CM in Dinoland, I used to LOVE working til park close. The park would be empty, it would be dark and the lights would all be on, and the shortcut I would take along the Cretaceous Trail still had the dinosaur sounds playing on the speakers. It was pretty surreal...but an experience that I will never forget. Honestly, I think seeing it after dark was what made it my favorite park of the 4.EE at night is awesome!

I was in town for an IBM convention and they had about 10,000 guests in the park. For the most part, they put out food carts and opened a few rides, most of Dinoland and EE were opened. They had character meet-n-greets and the such as well. I'm also a DVC member and look forward to what they will have to offer. If it's anything like the Typhoon Lagoon event, it should be pretty sweet.
Yes, that crane/boomlift/whatever was definitely parked by the tree when we were there in June 2015. It's in our photopass pictures. Also saw it in a friend's pictures from August. ;-/This is planned work. It has been on going around the structure for nearly a year now.
