  • DCA Entrance Construction Finally Beginning?

    If you check out Darkbeer's new update, the sun icon is surrounded by walls and they took the railing off. Perhaps we can hope the construction has begun.

      When I saw construction walls on Main Street expanding the hat shop into space that once belonged to an attraction, I was saddened and shocked.

      When I see these construction walls, I have only happiness.

        The Sunshine Plaza/Walt Disney Plaza project isn't supposed to begin until early 2009. These walls most likely arent the start of that project.

              If they were getting a jump start on the area by tearing out the fountain right before summer and during the final weeks of Food & Wine, they probably would have drained the water.

              Since there is still water in the fountain, and the construction walls are nearly flush with the perimeter of the facility, I'm betting this is just a minor refurbishment or reworking of the handrailings. There's probably a slimy lawyer involved in this somewhere, after someone's darling little child was goofing off unmonitored and fell into the fountain or something.

                  This is not the DCA entry plaza beginning construction. They are simply replacing the railings around the fountain.

                    I noticed that the 'Philip A Couch Casting Agency' sign was taken down in HPB. (Finally.) The facade it was on looks different from when I was there last, too. Or is it the same and I'm going crazy? (I KNOW the sign was gone, though.)

                      Why spend money repairing a fountain you're going to rip out soon? Maybe it really was a legal issue, but this just seems dumb to me. I guess if it was in really bad shape, it should be taken care of, but probably this is just scheduled maintenance and one hand is not talking to the other.

You know…the Mickey in us.

                        well scheduled maintenance and pianting need to continue in areas even if they are due for demolition in the future. It would look horrible if things were left to untouched for one or two years.

                          so if I under stand it correctly the fountain is getting the Vegas treatment. What is going in it's place?

                            Eventually a new partners statue and the Carthay Theater...

                            However, ALL that is happening right now is they are replacing the worn out railings around the fountain. It is not being removed right now.

                              I'm sure some genius kid fell in the fountain while the parents were too busy getting a churro to watch them.

                              We saw kids climbing around the rocks at the entrance to Condor Flats and around the Grizzly area across from Bugs Land (where the waterfall is). I'm sure it's not too implausible to assume somebody fell in.

                              I'm still surprised the fencing around Paradise Pier or the ROA isn't higher .
