Sorry, I was under the impression that the area in question is expected to be finished in 4-5 months along with the new ROA/Railway makeover, true or false?


Don't be sorry. You were asking about it. Not 'sniping' as it was suggested. There is a difference, between the two.


Thank you. :)
Although likening the wall to that of a diner might have been a bit much on my part.

^ But since you did bring it up, I was under the impression that ALL of any backdrop/rock work to the Disneyland Railroad,
was supposed to be finished by the summer, so that the trains could re-open, etc. New trees and landscaping too, I assumed.

What I remember reading. :?r

That is where the train will go past, before it goes into the new tunnel there. And you can expect it to be done when the train opens. you were correct in your thinking.

Yeah, that has been my impression as well! That's also why I was asking, because if that is the case then it would not be unreasonable to assume that what we're seeing of the facade in question is what the entire wall will look like once it's finished.

The relatively plain section of the wall could be an area where a waterfall will be flowing. (just thinking out loud)

^ It could be a large section of (already grown) trees put in front, too.
Most of the art concepts keep showing forest as part of the "divider berm"
between "Rest of Park Land", and SWL.

My thought on it. :mickey:

Actually, this is very cool, as they're treating it like the tunnel/archway entrance into
Tokyo Disney Sea. You know it's all there, and you can see some of it from outside the park.
But then you pass through that archway (tunnels at DL) and WHAM!

It hits you how amazing it immediately all is. And REAL. :b :br

I did a quick Google search and couldn't find any real numbers so I thought I'd ask here.... What kind of g forces do the major rides here pull? Just curious really. Thanks!

Unless Disney put out any of this Data, it would just be a guess. But Screamin being the most intense, I'd say the loop pulls around 3.5 - 4 G's. Totally random guess though.

It's easily worth the extra $10 a day. Robb you are exactly right on the different clientele between WDW and Disneyland. My daughter had a season pass for Disneyland and went all the time bringing food instead of buying it. This makes perfect sense.

I took this picture on Saturday. I'm not sure if a scrim fell down from the rain or this was intentional, but the visible piece of the tower just doesn't seem "finished" or fully look like the concept art.
