For some strange reason the old spin handles have been added back to Luigi’s Flying Tires. To give you some background on these handles, during cast member previews these handles were present on the vehicle to control the spin. The problem was the spin mechanics didn’t work as planned so they were removed before the official opening. The handle you see in the picture was absent from the ride vehicles since opening. Last week they re-appeared, but are inoperable.
Disney Imagineering held a playtest for a new show called “Imagine That” in DCA on Wednesday and Thursday. The show was made up of artist and improv actors creating scenes using suggestions from the audience. Disney regularly uses playtests to work on show and attraction ideas.
Another look at the Candlelight Processional setup. The seating area is added around 5 PM after most of town square is closed off. Traffic from that point on gets very congested so it’s best to avoid Main Street if possible.
That’s it for this week!
