MiceChat Forums Retheme

Hello Folks,

Delayed, due to unforeseen circumstances our presentation of "MiceChat Forum Makeover" has been delayed till next weekend.

MiceChat Forums will be going through a design change and much needed update. This update will give a more modern look as well as bring in mobile viewing options. So you may see the forums looking strange as we implement the new look.

Thank you all, and happy MiceChatting!

    The trees behind the Cofferdams are gone also , giving you a clear view of construction on the new rockwork

    An interesting decision, given how much Disney likes to 'keep up appearances'. I'd say either the screen was damaged or that for some reason Disney needs that 'line of sight' open for some reason.

      I agree. It is an interesting move. I like having a glimpse of the progress though.

        'Screens at the Cofferdams' sounds like a Sherlock Holmes book. :-)

          Yes, hopefully, the situation will be resolved soon so as to prevent further undermining the believability of Frontierland.

            I heard from one of the train conductors a week and a half ago that they were planning to begin flooding the rivers in ~3 weeks from when we talked. He also mentioned that it was going to take over a week to get them full again.

            So if that information was correct, then my guess is they moved this to prepare for flooding the rivers and will build some alternate screen that doesn't depend on the cofferdams being there.

                      It clearly means they are getting ready to flood the river. The tracks are installed, the rockwork along the water's edge is almost complete.

                              Speaking of screens, they should dress up that screen in front of the Columbia by painting a picture of...the Columbia? on it.

                                    hmmm wonder why they did that. Does anyone know if they've laid any new track to the DLRR as of yet?

                                      They have officially ruined the Rivers of America. What was once the appearace of a vast and lengthy experience has turned into a pool by comparison just as all the other inferior versions of this attraction around the world. The fact you can see the back of the river from the front is very telling.

                                        End of an era. That slow, quiet section of the ride on the north side of the river was like being in another world.
