Photo Report: January 16th, 2012 - In-Depth Look at the Matterhorn Refurbishment

  • 1-24-2012


We'd like to welcome David Spencer to our team of intrepid field reporters! David will be giving us regular photo reports, so I hope you enjoy his first from January 16th, 2012:

Another look at the new billboards at the Mickey & Friends tram station advertising World of Color and Star Tours: The Adventures Continue

New baseball and football Mickey ears

You'll never lose your glass slipper if it's stuck on your hat!

The Disneyana Store is currently closed for refurbishment, along with pretty much half of the other side of Main Street!

The biggest project in Disneyland Park at the moment is the 6 month long refurbishment for the Matterhorn Bobsleds

Walls are up around the loading area and queue

David has provided us with dozens of photos from many different angles of the "Scafflehorn", so I'll just let the pictures do the talking from here on out...

From Tomorrowland

From Pixie Hollow and the parade route

From Fantasyland

From Sleeping Beauty Castle

And finally from Main Street USA

Thanks for viewing this photo report and welcome aboard David!

I am so happy to know the Disney Folks are taking good care of good ole Matterhorn!  When I rode it in October, I was worried!  Thanks Dave, good job!
