made our way around to the front of the main gate and ticket
booths, I was amazed at how much was actually completed.

opportunity for plenty of photos and a quick virtual tour.
Despite the lack of key "Attractions" in the All
Access Entry Plaza, I'm anticipating its completion most
of all because of the theming which will be stunning.
