Exterior work on DCA's Tower of Terror is nearly complete. Testing and adjustment of the ride system is underway.
Over at Disneyland, Space Mountain's new paint job is moving along. Construction walls have gone up around the former queue for Rocket Rods. Rumors indiciate that a Buzz Lightyear attraction may be built at this location. Christmas decorations have also been spotted throughout the park.
At Knott's Berry Farm, most of Indian Trails has been closed off and Reflection Lake has been completely drained. The Church of Reflections is nearly ready to re-open in its new location, with services expected to begin shortly after Thanksgiving.

Also, looks like they are going with the old look for Space Mountain (which is fine by me). Just wondering if they'll continue on with the rest of Tomorrowland.
FYI, for those like us that miss the People Mover, this type of ride has been somewhat reincarnated at Bonfante Gardens. The Sky Trail (Morgan Monorail) looks almost identical to the old PM trains, and proves the same kick back relaxing aeriel tour of a small section of the park.
I have a feeling that the People Mover might have been expensive to maintain. An awful lot of moving parts.
I can't believe that I grew up in the Bay Area and still haven't had a chance to ride it. Last time I was in the area while it was open, however, was the day before my wedding. Things were kinda hectic. ;)
