    Mostly, the waiting area is the biggest part of the refurbishment, it also had a sound change (I hear it's supposed to sound better now) and it has elements from the original IASW in Disneyland....although I can't tell you what they are, as tonight was only my second time riding it.

    as for Cinderellabration.....as far as I'm concerned, it's a disapointment. There isn't a plot, and Mickey isn't even in it.
    All the people will look up and shout: "Save us!" and I'll whisper...'no'.

    Who watches the watchmen?

    Ok there are the pics.

    The rehab did the attraction well. The sound is so much better. The major changes were made to the entrance/exit ares and that was it. THe ride itself is still the same, almost exactly. They repainted everything as well as new fabric, etc. There were small changes inside the ride, new lighting effects in some places, etc. The clowns in the final scene seem to be backwards. You can not see their faces. The one with the lollipop is on the left as you face it. The mickey vines in the Africa room have moved slightly. Before they hung from the ceiling and went back up to the ceiling. Now they go from ceiling to floor.

    The exterior is pretty much the same. You now enter near the exit and there is plenty of que to walk through. The exit ramp has changed completely as well. ECV / chairs go down the exit in their own lane. Everything in the entry way is white.

    From what they were saying before this atttraction went down. this is pretty much what was expected most of this refurb was to bring the facility up to modern standards, which might not show to the average visitor, but some of the changes made may make it easier to maintain the rattraction and keep it looking better between the smaller traditional rehabs. As for the re-done queue there is one thing I have not heard anyone comment on Is the clock the face that trendy shows in this photo:
    http://www.disneyworldtrivia.com/pho...cat=all&page=1 if it is like the one at Disneyland swings back and forth like a clock pendulum with a tick, tock sound effect as it swings, then each quarter hour (or was it less often...I haven't been to Disneyland since 1981.) the clock "goes off" doors open, as in one of the pictures trendy shows where the toy soldiers that appear:

    http://www.disneyworldtrivia.com/pho...cat=all&page=1

    in this shot (also trendys) you can see that there are not one...but two sets of doors beneath the clock face
    http://www.disneyworldtrivia.com/pho...cat=all&page=1

    the rectangular door beneath the smiley/clock/pendulum face, I believe house more of the toy soldiers (though once again it's been so many years, below that there is another set of doors, but I am afraid they may just be there because the design here is based on the facade of the attraction at Disneyland, and at Disneyland those are fuctioning doors here it looks like there is not room for those doors to fuction the was that they do in CA. There once every hour (or is it half hour?) when the clock goes off a set of dolls comes out those doorsm and parade around the front of the clock going back into the facade at door underneath the doors on the isdes where the soldiers are. It looks like there is no room for them to actually come out here thats whay I believe they are just false doors here, but I"m not sure...I'd love to be wrong...perhaps I am, but no one has mentioned it yet so even if that does function the same way here perhaps that part is not yet operating.

    Thanks for that info Brian. Not sure about the one just below the clock face. The other two (one on each side) with the three soldiers opens constantly.
