    Kevin,
    I'm a big fan of your video updates (even my wife will sit down to watch them, and I bore her silly with Disney info as it is), but it seems like the sound quality is deteriorating with each new instalment!

    Think I'll have to pick up one the monorail decals on my next trip...

      It's a byproduct of the conversion from camrec (camtasia screencast) to avi (necessary before I upload to youtube).

      Each time I think I've fixed it, a new problem occurs. That said, I *think* I've found the problem and will have better sound - fingers crossed - for next week.

        Something to add to your next update Kevin is that Tomorrowland at The Magic Kingdom is receiving some new paint. All of the light blue on the top of the Peoplemover track is all brand new. You can also see the fresh paint on the wall in the corner between the Buzz Meet & Greet and the Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin exit. While I also have noticed the pylons could use some touch ups, I did notice that they were doing some work a few weeks ago on the ones in the back of the Stitch's Great Escape extended queue. A few weeks ago they were just grey mesh sheets covering them, now they are back. I honestly couldn't tell a big difference, but it was interesting nonetheless.

        Overall, I think Tomorrowland is getting touch ups just like many of the other lands are.
        -Reconstruction and Refurbishment of the rotating ball
        -Concrete work around the ball that stretches toward Avenue of the Planets
        -The Launching Pad neon sign was fixed within the past month after not illuminating since at least January.
        -The robot news boy is still under refurbishment.
        -Carousel of Progress' sign was redone.
        -Finally just a few rockets up at Astro Orbiter have see a little bit of TLC with new seat belts, redone interior, and fresh paint.

        Not to mention that The Launching Pad is scheduled for a referb this fall. I have noticed the two Tomorrowland issues pointed out in the video, but it's also good to see that work is being done.

          Several of ^those have been in previous updates, but I'll keep an eye out for the fresh paint!
