Refurb Roundup Day: The Movie – Concepts and events captured on official video

Thursday, 14th April 2011 at 15:45

As promised, here’s the official video of the Molly Brown rededication ceremony and the refurbishment presentation events of 25th March, when we were invited to see first-hand the ongoing and upcoming projects taking place across the resort in the lead-up to the 20th Anniversary next year. The Molly Brown’s full-time return to the rivers this weekend finally brought the video online, which also features a good look at some of the concepts and details we were shown during the presentation that morning. A map of Disneyland Park shows the areas to be refurbished in red, whilst photos show the original 1990s model of Sleeping Beauty Castle being re-touched with its new colours that “soar into the sky”.

Special credit to Kristof of magicforum and Photos Magiques for not only stepping up to the mic but slipping in that fun little tribute to the Molly Brown’s original “Queen of the River” title!

  • Am I right in saying that Big Thunder Mountain is being refurbished again? If so… YAAAY :D

  • Thanks for the video!

    It’s the first time I’ve heared Kristof talking.

    In my opinion the new color scheme of Walt’s looks fine.

  • It’s a shame they didn’t put English subtitles, but it was still great to watch.

    I never realised that the maze was getting repaved as well; that’s good to see!

  • Ezza — Yes, the whole mountain and this time the Rainbow Arch (which was missed last time) will be completely repainted in a “rich ochre”!

    Josh — Not sure what is planned for Alice’s Curious Labyrinth, possibly just further improvements/touch-ups. The area to be repaved there is apparently the path between Fantasy Festival Stage and Dumbo, outside the maze.

  • Let’s hope the castle looks like it was ain 1992, just as this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkyGamleL-I
