For the amphitheater, is the front portion standing, or did they decide to do half wood bleachers, and half stone bleachers? Can't tell in the photos! Thanks for the photos (as always).
Great update with wonderful pictures - thanks!
So this means that in 2, 3 years we are going to see it completed!! Yay!!
A big thank you to all of those who commented!
@First Anonymous: As you stated, half of the amphitheater will have themed seats, while the other half will have regular bleachers. It's almost like they ran out of money halfway through this project! ;-)
@Jessica: There is a good chance the new show will host soft-openings even before the scheduled previews! Stay tuned, as we will continue to keep you updated.
I'd highly doubt that the two types of seating are down to budget or time constraints, this is Disney after all, they have made it abundantly clear that they will spend as much as it needs and are not afraid to take their time with construction.
Looking at the amphitheatre the themed wall seating is on a steeper gradient than the top bleachers, so perhaps that has something to do with it
