Let's continue to take a look around Big Thunder Mountain Railroad:
A lot of scaffolding is still up in this section of the ride:
The small shack in the back of the mountain has received a brand-new set of shingles:
Thank you for the updates!! It gives me my Disney fix... So looking forwad to our upcoming trip!!! 92 days!!! Is there anywhere that is giving confirmation on the enclosing of the BTR qoue?
@ Jeffery: they did not give any exact opening dates for anything, only the closing date for snow white. the first part of the expansion (Great Goofini, half of Dumbo, train station, and Casey Jr. water play area) will be open the last two weeks to the end of march. Little mermaid and beauty and the beast will be the second part of the expansion and that's set to open late 2012 around late November most likely to be ready for the holiday crowds. Part three is the remaining half of Story book Circus which will mainly be stores and small interactive pieces along with the new show Pete's Silly Sideshow. That is set to open Around this time next year (maybe a little later). The final piece, part four, is the snow white mine coaster which is a long way from being opened as they just started laying foundations a few weeks ago. My best guess is an opening date around early October next year.
@Anonymous what about 7 dwarfs mine train
That is the Snow White Mine Coaster.
Just over 30 years ago Big Thunder opened at WDW. Glad to see a lot of the familiar artifacts and Americana still standing and to see how the show has held up. Those were fun memories building the second one of 4. Is the red FRP barrel with the fire chiefs name on it still over the front fire hydrant? That was the only way they would let us cover it. Rusty1
