    Thanks for the pcitures.
    Actually those rides vehicles are supposed to get the COMPLETE gold shakedown.

    I'm addicted to Disneyland. Disneyland hobbies are expensive.
    If I become a bum people are going to say "Don't give him money, he's just gonna use it on Disneyland."

    With all this talk of "off the shelf" and "on the back-burner" it seems the only thing that DCA is really missing is the kitchen sink!

          Ugh. I have this image in my head of a Jungle Cruise boat painted entirely gold and it disgusts me. I hope they realize that this is a mistake before they do it :monkey:

            It looks absolutely amazing... just hope the paint doesn't do some cheap chipping or something. Or is it high quality paint they use for their spray painting?

            ...I don't think I have ever actually gotten the chance to ride the Mark Twain or the Columbia.. I do remember going on the raft to TSI, but now I can barely remember the island. I need to go on the Mark Twain someday.

              There is extensive discussion regarding this here

              The gold boat on JC is going to happen as far as anyone can tell, but I haven't heard anything for certain about other attractions.

                as cousin orville said, gold bezels around the light bands would be awesome- with the lights dyed in gold colorine (the dip gel they use to dye the lights for EP).

                the stacks look great, the bands look drab.

                  Not a fan of the new look, although if goes back to normal next year than I'll cope. However, as anyone who's seen a 5+ year old car with gold-colored emblems will tell you, they start looking ugly after a while.

                  As it is, it looks like someone took the Twain into Pimp My Ride.

                    I like the golden stacks and actually think they should probably leave them that way. The "gold" trim on the rails, etc. did look a little dingy to me. I was hoping for gaudy shiny gold-leaf. Hang the cost. This is a multi-billion dollar enterprise. Ah well. As long as they don't paint Tomorrow Land purple again, I'm happy.

                      Go to page 30 in that to see computer renderings of the gold vehicles.

                            The stacks look great, but the cutouts on top of the wheel house have lost all of their definition and contrast that they used to have being white. The gold trim isn't very shiny...I agree, it is very recycled Tomorrowland paint looking. Maybe if they had only done pinstripes along the decks, only a little gilding, not so much as they have now though.

                              Maybe they didn't finish the Mark Twain's gold treatment, and just brought it out for the busy Spring Break period...
