    Interesting.. perhaps the stairs were such bad shape they Had to be removed.. (FLA had a second level queue??)

    I know whats repalcing it.. A solid Gold staircase... it is using M.E's Bonas he wont be taking with him....

    Wait i just heard the stairs have been stolen and the security cameras have a man in a mikcey costume taking them.... The man has a name tag that said.. My initicals are not M.E.....

    Haha, this thread... *face palms*

    Anyway, I always loved the major refurb they did on the JC, because it was themed very nicely. I loved the animatronic parrots and other birds they had around and the interesting exotic relics. I hope they fix the stairs in time! Probably needed a fix cause every time I went on JC, they made us go upstairs.... they're probably widening it.

    That seemed like a SMACKDOWN! We can post about the refurbished stairs, but only if it fits within a certain mold? Well, it seems like that kind of attitude would limit the exchange of new ideas, laughter and information (albeit lighthearted).

    I guess, what I am saying is, we WERE on topic... silly, but on topic. Just because the posts don't always venture down the avenue people (or Mice Chat Moderators) expect doesn't make those posts less valuable.

    Of course I could be wrong, as my opinions are usually not deemed acceptable for public consumption.

    Thanks for pics. I'm really excited about this ride re-opening, hopefully it will be a lot of fun with the changes.

    In the day it is the Jungle Cruise. At night it is Jungle Turbo!

    That's what the quick launch install is all about.

    As for the stairs, i'll speculate that there are some OSHA or building or ADA codes to comply with. Or it could just be termites

    Thanks for the pics!

    They had to remove a large section in the fence so they can install the new Jungle Cruise: ROCK IT! sign...

    I am still excited to see what they will do with one of my all time favorite attractions. I cannot believe they had such a huge gap in the fence.

    Unfortuantly all the grand plans for the stairs have been cancelled because the budget has been slashed in half

    Oh gold! That'll be awesome!

    I heard they will be extending the the size of the stairs by a few inches, in order to increase capacity. So it'll be basically the same stairs experience, only with more people (if the newly configured stairs don't cause the queue to constantly break down that is).

    No, you got it all wrong! They are adding a loop... just like the one they installed in the Paris version of the stairs, last year. Why do we always get cloned stuff? WHY??? I want something original on those stairs for the 50th!

    Jim Hill said it was going to be a Pixar staircase, though...
