Elevator doors, drainpipes and fastpass

Wednesday, 5th September 2007 at 22:31

ImageIt's a time of fast progress at The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror as the deadline begins to loom more imposing than the 13th floor of this monster. DLRP Today visited the park with exactly 4 months to go until soft openings are said to be beginning. Join us for a quick photo tour through some of the latest details on the Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant of Walt Disney Studios Park...,

Modern silver-colour elevator doors suddenly receive themed coverings, wood panelling completed
throughout collapsed corridors (walls are 2D, panel effect stuck on), turquoise walls have their
paintwork ripped, faded and even washed down onto the elevator doors.

Bright colours and strong details — chipped plaster, decorated elevator doors, “art deco turquoise”
collapsed corridors and brown drainpipes forming a maze across the hotel.

Queue roof getting paint and art deco details, appears to be at about the same stage
as the Fastpass area (see further below).

Beautiful theming on a beautiful day. This one’s just for the picture.

Turning the corner from the back of Toon Studio, Tower of Terror is an awesome sight ahead.

Redbrick theming is now a touch more “purple-brick”.

Drainpipes reach their end, the larger tubes above the doors enclose the on-ride cameras! Notice
the wires falling from them. Stairs between floors in the alcove have yet to be enclosed.

Covered hotel entrance area finally started theming, Fastpass canopy (foreground)
now has paint and countless darker art deco details.

The three domes of the Tower are infact now outdone in style and
beauty by the dome of the Hollywood Boulevard placemaking!

Look out for a full photo and video tour of the Hollywood Boulevard area following shortly, including many more angles on the Tower of Terror and its surrounding placemaking from across the park.

If you have not had the chance to step into the park recently and experience the effect of all this new construction for yourself, you won’t want to miss this!
