World Update (WOF)


Time to check in on the park for an update.
Lots of new 50th decorations are appearing

Really like the look of the medalions

A new directional post in Gateway Gardens

These adorn the light poles in the "6 tree plaza" of Gateway Gardens

They are still working on getting the main stage ready for the new show

Really like these banners

More decorations on the buildings in Gateway Gardens

New land specific trashcans are starting to appear around the park

50th decorations on the Grand Carrousel

Moving into Scandinavia

The restrooms received its signage finally

SeaDragon was having some issues today

The big change in Africa since our last visit is that they have stained the pavement to show the three distinct sections of Africa.

This first part is the Serengeti

Big Jack's received new signage

They upgraded the fencing on the train bridge

The attention to detail here is amazing.  The brown color represents that we are now in the Africa - Morocco section

Different trashcan design for this subsection

The plants around this faux fountain really help the look of the area

Another directional post near Boomerang (I think these are slowly being installed around the park)

The pavement changes once again when we enter the Africa - Egypt subsection

New palm trees have been planted

Sand Dune Diner received some more detailing

We found it interesting that Forum Road was open today to park guests

They added waves to the Flying Dutchman sign

EUROPA plant letters are back

Gold Rush Pizza received a sign, even though it is not even on park maps this year

Airbrush Artist received a sign

Shake Shop got a sign

Sweet Spot got a sign

Americana got a directional pole, but no specialized trashcans yet

Detonator got some new barrels

So did the nearby drink refill stand

Eli was operational today

She has festive bunting in her engine and carriages

She has a new water tower located at the station

and yes it is operational.  That has to be a lot more convenient 

More 50th decorations on the bridge near RipCord

SteelHawk is finally open for the season

Patriot's elevator received a new color scheme

Skyliner is finally back together.  It's still not open for the season though

It says ASIA this year instead of ORIENT
