The view from the Monorail shows us some of the building details. If you look just above the entrance to California Adventure, you’ll see the new Glendale-Hyperion inspired Monorail bridge.
Note the massive Cars Land rock work in the background
Impressive details above Oswald’s Filling Station
A look under the entrance reveals the red outlines for Oswald’s Filling Station
The roof seen below is one of the Red Car Trolley stations
The Carthay Circle Theatre’s tower was covered back up this past week. It appears this section is being resurfaced again.
Copper rain gutters have been installed on a few buildings
The Glendale-Hyperion inspired Monorail bridge as seen from the inside of the park
The futuristic looking Monorail clashes with the art deco 1920′s / 30′s Buena Vista Street, however it is no more out of place than when traveling alongside Fantasyland, and here it only lasts a few seconds…we’ll get use to it!
The Red Car Trolley tracks have been installed, and the street has been formed.
The flagship store, Elias & Company, can be seen below
Last week we reported the Hollywood Pictures Backlot elephants were removed. Here is a few looks from the other direction.
As you can see, the removal of the pedestals and elephants have really opened up the sight lines for the transition between Hollywood Land and Buena Vista Street. This is most likely the reason for the removal of the Taste Pilots’ Grill jet as well.
But looking down Hollywood Blvd it is obvious that the Condor Flats sign needs to go as well.
