PHOTOS - Exterior refurbishments underway at The Great Movie Ride

Work is now well underway on restoring the exterior of The Great Movie Ride at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

The reproduction of The Chinese Theater had been obscured by the Sorcerer Mickey Hat Icon, and when that was removed earlier this year, the exterior was left looking in a less than prime condition.

The first image below is from earlier this year, with the following three taken this past weekend. The most notable change is on the main center roof section, which now has great looking patina effect restored.

Turner Classic Movies. Channel number depends on your TV provider.

Ahhhhh, makes sense. I didnt want to be the one to break the news to you that Saturday may be just a little crowded. Just a little......

LOL no but I won't be exhausted from a long week. Different mind set for me.

Or people like me that is going Saturday night because I am to tired to fight crowds on a friday.

Perhaps because there are people who don't really care that Star Wars is coming out? Or that might care, but have no problems waiting a few weeks to see it.

I'm still wondering who the heck decided to schedule on Star Wars Night.

I though it was pretty good. The Roger Osbourne thing was a nice touch and the cast member did an excellent job.

Agreed, but even the lackluster CM's at least do a "ta-da" moment as they emerge form the smoke. This guy literally threw the cloak down and ran down the steps while the smoke was still clearing. For shame! lol

In all fairness that is as per the SOP. The rest however...

I was really hoping the TCM sponsorship would put an end to the following conversation I keep having: Me: "Hey, let's do the Great Movie Ride!" Friends and family: "Does it still do that thing where the cowboy comes out with the gun and it's all painful and cheesy?" Me: "... Yes." Friends and family: "Then absolutely never." Me: "Sigh..."
