    I had seen that also. I was curious as to why, a new attraction or just maintenance to safely access the building.

    Doesn't it already have a staircase? Would have made it hard to get up to/down from the Skyway

    It was said that a week or so ago there were some tarps covering it, but no one has been able to find out anything that I've heard...

    Welcome to the boards tdf192, Bobby2, and doconeill!! I really hope they do something with the old Skyway. Even if that means bringing it back or doing something totally different altogether.

    I've been here a while, I just don't post much...

    I don't think there is ANY chance the skyway will ever come back. I understand the insurance costs alone on those things is enormous.

    I did think it would make a nice little dining terrace though...

    I agree. I don't think the Disney Company would be willing to open themselves up to the legal risk the skyway would bring. It will probably be something not very exciting.

    I've wondered for awhile if anything would be done to those two buildings. They were such wonderfully themed and wonderfully placed structures. That said however, I believe they are used for storage now so maybe what they are doing is simply for better access as someone posted above. I don't see there being enough room to do much overall but a little dining area would work.

    I saw the tarp earlier this week but didn't really think about it.

    *In a sort of related, yet not so related question, where does Tinker Bell "fly" to once "she" leaves the castle with Wishes?

    Yeah a little dining area would be nice as there is quite limited seating around the lunching pad.


    Off topic: Tinkerbell flies from th castle towards main st. Going over the building btween the ice cream shop and the toilets towards tomorrowland. she lands up on a platform in the backstage area behind the main street shops.

    Another off topc question but as we were in tomorrowland:

    Do they still use the outdoor theatre nxt to Buzz lightyear?? if so when, because everytime ive gone its always been closed off and not being used at all, or even advertised for anything...

    Ah, so that's a little south of where I thought she "landed"...

    From what I understand they only use it for occasional musical performances and don't they have a stage show during Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party back there?

    That stage was being used a week ago from today when I was there. As I rode by on the TTA there are a few windows which allow you to see the stage for a few seconds. I saw some kids on stage as we passed. It looked like a Christmas thing with amateurs (school kids) or something.

    You are correct. Mickey's Twas the Night Before Christmas.
    A wonderful show to see if I do say so myself. If you have not been to MVMCP I highly recommend it. We were just there on November 20 and had a blast!
