Great photos. I've actually never been down that path...

Wonder if they can reach those front turrets with a smaller crane during the overnight hours?

The open walkway on the east side of the castle. Interestingly, there are still two front turrets without the light netting on them. Either they're not covering them, or aren't using the crane to put them up.

No, two quarters empty.

Super happy I'll be missing the crane for my trip! Yes I know its necessary, and the lights are spectacular, the crane just isn't What I want to see when looking at the castle.

Just be sure to give credit when you use it. When I have attitude on the radio, usually a dispatcher cries to their supervisor and their supervisor calls my supervisor and we all agree it won't happen again......until the next time it happens.

Love this reply. I might use that the next time someone in dispatch gives me a hard time for my "attitude". LOL

My glass is half full but I'm probably going to spill it.

Hey, you never know, maybe they'll give the crane a "Frozen" overlay! (Crap, I hope I didn't give them any ideas!):banghead:

Possibly could take that long for a permenant installation but they could work on it during 3rd shift, same with light bulb changes. And yes, the castle is a perfect location for a Frozen themed castle show but they are really starting to over saturate all of WDW with items from this movie. Not everyone is a fan of Frozen and they want to see other Disney themes when they come to WDW. Even some fans of Frozen are getting sick of how much Disney is pushing it. It's about time to Let It Go before Disney pushes it into the grave themselves.

I hope that Frozen doesn't take over the show, this will be the first time I'm going to the MVMCP and I want to see the original version. Also, to answer your question psherman42, I'm assuming the first night they will be lit will be November 7th since that is the first night of the MVMCP.
