  • Tarps on Sleeping Beauty Castle?

    Since today was the last day of the 50th, and today is the first day of Halloweentime, is there a tarp on the castle now? When will all of the "bling" be taken off the castle?

    I am wondering the same thing and no one is willing to answer. I am eager for them to take it all down now because it's just out of place now that all reference to the 50th has been removed. Another thing that bothers me is that they managed to take all the hidden 50's down, but the one on the train station still remains.

        The first day of the Halloweentime was Friday. Today is the third day.

            Yeah, and the last day of the 50th was technically yesterday, September 30th.

              Oh my. The 50th is ending; oh the blues. I'll miss it. But I also love Halloween time.

              We're always having fun in the Fun and Games Lounge. Care to visit us?

                yeah... but they're gonna be running "Remember..." for a little while longer (which incorporates -as you know- th projections on the castle)... would seem kinda silly to have tarp hanging off of it while they were doing it. My guess would be they'll wait till they stop doing "Remember..." (so the castle's not SO featured)... and then take all the 'bling' off.

                      For the crowns, I have two things I'd like to see happen:

                      A) For them to stay there

                      *or*

                      B) For one of them to be donated specifically to the "Make Christine's Car Blingin'" fund, and plop one of those babies on top of my car.

                        If they did it in sections overnight, they can probably "De-Bling" the Castle without any tarps or scaffolding at all, and without disturbing the fireworks show operations.

                        Do it a little at a time, drive out one or two personnel boom lifts and one medium sized crane from backstage, and unbolt/lift off one piece at a time. Plop the pieces on a trailer and roll it back to the warehouse. When they "run out of night for the work" (sic) they stop where they were, put the lifts away backstage, and come back tomorrow night after closing.

                        One or two evenings a week they don't bring out the crane (just the basket lifts) and spend the night patching the holes and touching up the paint.

                        That high up, they could leave the patching for a few days - they would have to be really big holes or scars to be visible from the ground, or you just hit it with some "close" spray paint. Or the old standby for making things disappear temporarily on a set, colored Gaffer's Tape. I have an assortment myself...

                        Observing during park hours all the average Guest would see was the various pieces disappearing from the spires and turrets one piece at a time. If they even noticed the change day to day. But we're geeks, we'd notice. :shy:

                          I think it will go away once the christmas decorations start going up, good thing they didn't dress the castle in halloween decorations, I don't think most people would have liked that.

                            As far as the crowns go, they were put up in a single night, they should be able to remove them in a single night. The rest of the stuff on the castle shouldn't be too hard to remove.

                                From what I hear from a friend the crowns will still be up the rest of the 50th on the castle will go down.

                                  They should leave something because Disneyland will never be less than 50 years old, and because the castle will just look too plain after bearing the decorations for so long.

                                    And I don't mean to be going :ot:, but I think those Disneyland class of 1995 Original placquards (sp?) should have stayed. They weren't shockingly gold and were really a nice sentiment to what attractions were around on Disneyland's day of birth.
