EpcotServo's Interim Update #7- Pirates of the Très Bien
Hey everybody! Been a long time since an update. Where was I you ask? Good question. I was stuck in the Black Hole with a Robot that sounded like a hick. After dismantling it with extreme prejudice, I found myself back in the parks. And if you stop asking so many questions, I might just dedicate this next update to ya'll!
....and we so dedicate.
-Crowds were light. No Fantasmic, and crowds are manageable.
-The Strat' is Under Tarps in front of Coaster.
-Tower still has scratchy and generally funky audio.
-Animation is all decked out for Toy Story 3. Including a nice new sign breaking down just what kind of art they have displayed.
-Rapunzel's signs in Animation have been updated to fit with the new Hip-Hop-Urban-Suburban name- "Tangled"
-Muppets' wait time sign has been changed from a stand alone pole, to attached right to the building closer to the entrance.
-Lots of effects and audio iffy at Muppets-Typical of an attraction about to go down for a period of time.
-Crowds were medium.
-Flower and Garden this year features flowers, as well as gardens.
-Do they have enough playgrounds?
-Off Kilter was "really on" that night, IMHO.
-Yakitori House is Yummy
-The trees on the right side of Mexico are desolated. Was this the freeze, or just cutting back?
-Tronorail looks great, and as one train, is surprisingly hard to find. You don't see it very often. And when you do, it looks shiny.
-Crowds heavy to light.
-Got stuck on the peoplemover for a good twenty minutes. But it was REALLY crowded before the parade and got to watch the sun go down over the hub, so no complaints.
-Except for one complaint: Too many Teenagers in the park. Calm down and talk quietly, ya' noisy teeners.
-Space Mountain was down for awhile too. Not surprising, it still looks pretty beat up on the outside AND the inside. (Especially the star projectors. They still look lousy.)
-Walls are all up around the back half of Fantasyland.
-Hatless pirate is hatless once again. It must be cold without all his hats...so cold...
OK, that's all for that then. On to this now!
