  • News Something being built backstage...

    Something new is being built backstage behind the first Pirates show building. It's not a ride - too small, terrible location, and we'd know about it anyway. But it's definitely something. You can see it from the railroad if you ride from Main Street to New Orleans Square. Just look inward toward the park, and shortly before the tunnel into NOS, you'll see a green construction fence with a work in progress behind it. Lots of steel. It's going to be a multi-story structure in what's currently a kitchen service area, I believe.

    I'll post some photos of it as soon as I can, but I was curious if anyone knew what this was, since I hadn't heard about it until I saw it in person. It's kinda cool...except when it's done, it'll completely block views of the backstage exterior of the Indiana Jones queue and part of the first Pirates show building. Not something most members here would care about, which is fine, but I was just curious. I figure there have to be a few more that are as crazy as me!

    EDIT: Here are the pictures at last. Also, for those who are puzzled about the location I'm talking about, it's right here. That's from before they started building the structure in question, though.

      I believe it is part of the New Orleans Main Kitchen expansion. Can't tell you its exact purpose, though.

        Yeah, we figured it must have something to do with the kitchens. If anyone happens to have any more specific (or definite) information, though, it'd be awesome!

          So, all those 99cent tomatoes are financing a bigger kitchen?

            I believe the new structure is called the DataPhotoBlocker.

              Multi-story? Finally, they are building the support structure to add the loop into Pirates!

                i wonder if this has anything to do with a large prop (a tarot card reader thing) i saw CMs lugging through NOS during the 10.30pm showing of Fantasmic!... ?

                  I believe those are for the new Princess and the Frog show.

                      Westside dinner has been closed. My guess, is the same as others. Kitchen.

                        ) The trees were bad enough...now this?! (In all seriousness, this sort of thing elicits SUCH mixed feelings from me. On the one hand, I want backstage to be completely separate from the onstage experience so that the illusions aren't ruined a bit for the "average guest"...but on the other hand, I personally want to see as much as I can! )

                        If anyone can get photos of this thing as construction continues, that'd be awesome. I recommend holding your camera up really high so you can see more over the fence. Also, there's a less obstructed view shortly before the platform next to the tunnel, so you might want to wait until then.

                        I wish I could post my photos, but Adobe Bridge is making Windows go BSOD on me...after probably a decade without that particular issue, now it's interfering with a program I use all the time. Hopefully I'll have the problem resolved soon. EDIT: Dunno if the problem's been resolved, but I have posted the pics in the original post.
