It does look like there will be windows out the back of the building on the queue levels. Still not close to something like WF though.

Yes on the 2nd level of the queue building there are postcard windows that look out towards the first drop

Nice, surprised they didnt put up large plate glass windows.. so you could really see whats going on..

Spellcheck on my phone switched words on me and I didn't catch it.  I meant PICTURE windows

The park provided photos of the final piece of track being put into place today.
The entire circuit is now complete.

^Can you be more careful when you quote?  You have a bad habit of deleting part of the code

As is - I don't find it very inviting as you would walk down the steps to the queue building entrance.  I also am not a fan of the exit bridge being so readily visible from the entrance queue line stairs.

The only reason to be in that area anyway is cinnamon bread

That's a problem unto itself.

I agree.  It never makes it to the car.

I gotta say, the framing is ugly.  Does it detract from landscaping and decorations for the Fall festival?

Only if you're in Midtown and are really looking for it.  I mean it's obvious it's there but you don't have to look.

Yeah, what an ugly bland color scheme for such a bold new ride. Not sure what the thought process was here, especially after they tested a completely different paint scheme. Something about dirt showing maybe? That's always why people move away from white paint jobs.  ::)

As long as they add lots of cool aesthetic details around an on the station, it won't matter too much. It does just look very suburban though...

It looks like Voyage's station now.  That's not a good thing

So I'll be the first to say it.  I hate the color of the station.  I hope that's not the finished product.

"few"

So pretty much everything except the fašades then?
I will say this for being "original to SDC" ... nope not buying it because I've heard otherwise

Few as in Saturday and I've been busy since then and it's a low priority.  But I also talked to a couple of my friends who work in M&C today as well.  You can not buy it if you want (not that it was for sale) but since these are the guys that actually built the stuff, all of the stuff, themselves, I'm inclined to believe them.

Perhaps we just misunderstood what you wrote.  M&C did have to retire and restrain all of the set pieces that came from WDW.  That's what you meant, correct?  If so, forgive my earlier post.

Now if you are saying the large set pieces (globe, Santa/sleigh, angels, tree) were built by M&C from ground up then no that is not correct as they were literally shipped up here from Florida

Seeing the big rides from the road/hiway is basic marketing 101... "impulse buying"

People drive by,
kids or adults see the coasters, "that looks cool, lets check it out".! 
THey go in check out the park and rides, SDC generates 3-500 bucks or more per family...

Thats impulse buying...  You have to properly market your product, to sell your product ;D

Um... if they're driving anywhere near SDC they were already going to SDC.  No one just happens to drive that way and then magically decides to go to SDC spur of the moment. 

Again SDC is NOT SIXFLAGS.  Stop trying to make it be.

We were notified by WDW that our choir has been accepted to perform at the Epcot Candlelight Processional on Dec 2nd.  Whoppi Goldberg will be the narrator.  Super excited and happy for my kids.
