Photo Update: Contemporary Resort and DVC Bay Lake Tower – Bonus Space Mountain with lights on

Hi everyone!

Site Partner Mousesteps website is having some issues right now (it’s up and running, but no updates are currently able to be added). Denise went to take photos of the DVC Contemporary Resort Bay Lake Tower and 4th floor construction in the main building after taking new video of the parade at the Magic Kingdom. Below are her photos and words:

This photo was taken from the monorail:

A sitting area with TV (I didn’t go down to it, but it looks like it’s for kids):

Potted plants around the DVC tables (I wish Disney would stop with the plants, it looks really bad!)

Thank you to Jeff for hosting my photos this week, and we’ll have more video of the Celebrate a Dream Come True parade tomorrow! Once my site is up, there will be a nice photo article on Kim Possible. It will include photos and more video, as well as Jeff’s photos from the earlier test phase which concluded with a visit to the former Image Works in the Imagination pavilion!

Bonus Video of Space Mountain with the lights on!

I rode the People Mover at the Magic Kingdom on the day of the Contemporary photos, and the Space Mountain lights were on. I took a second ride and shot this video:

Visit here later this week for Jeff’s article with photos of the Epcot’s Daredevil Circus Spectacular, when elephants and motorcycles (the latter on on tightwires!) were part of Epcot’s entertainment! A friend of mine had told me about it previously, and I didn’t quite believe it had ever been in Epcot. I’ve been going to Walt Disney World for over 30 years and missed this short-lived part of Epcot history.
