    Wow, thanks for the pictures! Looks like LOTS of activity on Matterhorn, Autopia, Nemo, and Midway! And I have to laugh at the air sickness bags for Sun Wheel. :lol:

    Btw, what's that red and white thing that's split in half in the Midway photos? Was that always there, or are they already bringing in stuff for the ride? I don't think it would be that since it's very early in the construction phase - to say the least. Just curious.

    Thanks again!

      Yeah, the Barf Bags caught my eye, a bunch of CM's were folding them up while the Sun Wheel did a full rotation while I was waiting in the queue... So we now have two Disney attractions (the other is Mission: Space) that offers the "convenience".

      As for the Red and White "half cones", they were decorations that covered the bolts and nuts that held the roof and sign to the ground. I presume they removed the covers to allow them to start to remove the posts....

        Great photos as always Mr Beer
        There is no right or wrong in this debate. It is simply a matter of perspective.

          The sickness bags have been in the Sun Wheel since at least February. Here is a link for the pics that a contributer over on the MIBoards had:
          http://www.mouseinfo.com/forums/show...Sun+Wheel+bags

          And if you look closer, those red and white cones coverd the bolts that screw into the footers for the supports of California Screamin's track itself. They support the bunny hills just above the Paradise Pier sign. So I would highly doubt they will be able to remove those posts.

            My daughter and I have never noticed the barf bags and we go on it all the time. It's not even that bad...I can't imagine anyone hurling on it??

              I went over 10 times this summer (live in vegas), and we never saw any barf bags?

                    Thanks for the pics DarkBeer. Shining a little light for me here in Nor Cal!

                    I haven't been to the park in ages. I will be down in early November but the pictures help me "visit" more regularly.

                      Ha! I love that they have barf bags in there now. It is such a human solution.

                      It was like Jerry Seinfeld said about helmet wearing - instead of stopping activities that were cracking our skulls, we invented a device that was to protect a brain too stupid to stop engaging in skull cracking activity.

                      By extension, instead of making the carriages LESS vomit inducing, or adding something I should have thought they needed - A BLOODY HANDRAIL OR SOMETHING TO HOLD ON TO - they add barf bags to make the clean-up easier.

                      God bless humans.

                          AaronInCal is right, the barfbags have been actually been there since February. But great update Darkbeer! Thanks for all the time and effort you put in.

                            That is pretty funny. 2 disney attractions with barf bags. A space launch and flight simulator............and a ferris wheel. How belittling, poor mission space ;P
