Looks good so far.

Was tempted to complain about the obvious speakers, but I know they are always battling form over function with theming, and proper speakers are more necessary than one might think due to emergency announcements. They blend in pretty good at least, and there's a lot of cool detail on those masts.

They are obviously putting a lot of neat touches into everything, so that continues to bode well.

Noticed, yesterday, that they boarded up the Pumpkin Nights area so you canít see the work from the train like you could a few weeks back.

This is going to be quite an area when its done..

Will this area have another purpose later, or going to be strickly for the Pumpkin Night Event.

Well I say they will continue to use it after PN.  Its flat, they are obscuring the view back there, adding a visual block to the end of the parking lot.  Its temporary but will suit its purpose until they add permanent.  I believe if its flat and easily accessible its going to be used as guest space.

So you are saying this will stay a parking lot?  This will not become a guest area, ride or show? 
Remembering the GE was parking lot up to the shad cabin into the 80's I would think they would continue the direction they have been moving.  The flat ground speaks louder to me than the corporate rumors.  I work for a top US Corp and although its rated high this has no bearing on the honesty or dependability of the information they provide to the public. 
 Time will tell.

Sorry.  I have to be extremely careful how I word things regarding current and future projects that may or may not have been released to the press. But I can confirm that it will not be used regularly as an employee parking lot again.

Today while on the train I noticed that there is now a giant wall all the way across the end of the area that will be used for Pumpkin Nights. It is made out of shipping containers stacked 4-5 tall and 2-3 across. The side facing where PN will be seemed to be finished off (It doesn't look like a stack of shipping containers from that side.). I didn't have my phone out so I didn't get a picture.  See the attached photo for the approximate location.

Projection / Light Show wall
Did you see any prep work on the other side? (Not Pumpkin side).  You might soon
