    Arrow Star Wars Land Photo Updates

    I have been taking pictures of the construction going on for the new star wars land since June. I thought maybe some of you might be interested in seeing some of them.

    This past Tuesday, Aug 30th, I took the following pictures that show walls actually starting to go up. Up till now, most of the work has just been moving dirt around.

    These are my pictures hosted on my server - if there is a preferred way to do this, please let me know.

    Also, i have quite a few more pictures I could post if there is any interest. Also, if the interest is there, I can continue to update with pictures every week or 2.

    Enjoy!

    Ok. My brain is trying to orient itself, but it isn't working. What are the "mountains" in the background? The one with snow on it and the one that kinda looks like Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

    Adding more pictures from my visit last night.

    In several of these pictures, you can see a green fence that goes across the whole "land" at this point. This is a road that allows workers to get through the area.

    Here you can see walls going up on the far side of this "road" and construction materials on the near side. That is Tower of Terror peaking out the top of the trees on the right side of the picture.


    This picture shows the construction in relation to Thunder Mountain and the Matterhorn.


    Closeup of the same area


    Matterhorn is on the right side of the picture and the blue and white "tents" on the left stage are the back of Mickey and the Magical Map.


    Here you can see the back of Mickey and the Magical Map on the right side and that is toontown in the background in the middle. Disney offices are in the white buildings to the left. A note here, its in the area by these white buildings where you can see the fireworks shoot off at night.


    A little closer look of a basement or underground area that im sure they will be building on top of.


    Zoomed back a little bit so you can see the proximity of the roadways on the edge of their property.


    A closer look at building materials that are laid out.


    Second posting coming up with more pictures from on Thunder Mountain.

    NOTE: the pictures taken from on Thunder Mountain are rotated for some reason. If you right click and view picture in a new tab, you can see the original image in its upright format. Also, the picture will be larger.

    These Next 3 pictures were taken from the 2nd climb hill as you crest the top.






    After getting off Thunder Mountain, I walked up to the fence and was able to get this picture through the wooden slats. This is looking straight towards where Thunder Mountain Ranch use to be.



    I hope you guys are as excited as I am to see the progress going on at DLR. I am going to work on getting some of my older pictures up soon. I also intend to update this post at least every couple of weeks!

    Great pics. Thanks for posting. I still remember the excitement when, as a wee lad of about 10, we would go up into Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse and look down into the giant gapping pit that would eventually become PotC. That was a very, very long wait.

    Ok, now that I know it is Disneyland (not sure how that slipped past my attention), it makes more sense.

    On an off note, even though I know this is about Star Wars, the pictures from Big Thunder showing the train made me smile and caused my tummy to flip a little. This is one of my favorite rides. Thanks for brightening my day.

    Construction has come a long quite a bit in a few areas.

    You can now make out where the train will pass through the area and several walls are going up.

    More pictures for your viewing pleasure!

    The first 3 pictures can show lots of progress being made in the area.
    Pictures taken from left to right






    Zoomed in photo of the area with lots of walls going up.

    In this photo on the left side you can see where the pedestrian tunnel will be to go under the train tracks.

    From Oct 26









    NOTE: There is quite a bit of construction going on behind the tree's. there is not a good angle to be able to get pictures of what is going up back here. From the tram on the ride to DTD you can see the construction through the large fences with green screens up, but it does not allow for taking a photo of the area.
