  • More changes today 09-21-2006

    The 50 Golden Mickeys are coming down fast and furious. Today this one was taken out, and this evening when I visited the park, there was nothing but fake rock and blue putty where this once stood:



    As others have noted, all the photomosaics are gone, and the many photomosaics near Small World came down especially fast. The only trace is a wood fence around the "Mowgli" mosaic in Adventureland.

    There are still mickeys on the Castle, on the lamposts in Main Street, and on City Hall and the Train station, but they are the only ones.

    This evening there were three carved pumpkins in the windows on Main Street, above the magic shop. They looked very real, like jack-o-lanterns.

    And, the Haunted Mansion Holiday looks ready to open from the outside - there are wreaths, pumpkins, the coffin, and a large Jack Skellington at the gates. Can't wait.

    It's sort of strange; 05-05-05 was when I convinced two of my friends to buy APs, and so was able to start going to the park on a regular basis. I feel like it's going to be so naked with all the 50th stuff gone.

      I know, I'm going tomorrow for a last 50th blast. Looks like it won't be much of one. Mom keeps on saying, it seemed like we had so much time, but we really didn't *sigh*

        Frogberto, I'm sure that the Splash one was taken down about a week ago because it wasn't there last Friday.

            We all knew it had to end sometime but at 16 months it was one heck of a birthday party.

            It seems like so long ago that we were all worried about the lackluster plans that had been leaked out. So much has happened. Pressler and company thankfully gone and with Castmember Matt the park was again spit-polished and we had a great 50th.

            It feels like January after all the Christmas decorations get put away. It happens so fast and you can't help but feel a little sad.

                  Yep, Hollywood1939 is right. I went on Splash Mountain last Thursday, and it was gone. The other riders in my log were pointing it out.

                    Wow! They need to paint the area where the Hidden Mickey 50th was on SM. It looks very noticeable that the 50th is missing.

                      Yeah it really sticks out when you look at it with no paint.

                        What was located here prior to the 50th Mickey head?

                          Maybe a Lakers logo? :yea: ok ok ok maybe not! But yes it does need to be fixed, as well as that horrible odor around the water areas...yegh!

                                        Yeah, it will be (and in several cases already is) sort of a jolt to find the decor from the past 17 months suddenly missing. But with all this Halloweentime stuff going on this year, which will immediately be followed up by the traditional Christmas season, it won't be until January that Disneyland will truly be back to normal. (And even then, who knows, maybe there will be "Dreams Come True" lamps on Main Street or something.)
