    Work continues around Rainbow Fall's volcano, especially at the Fire Falls river rapids where the manta slide part of the ride can be seen being built



    The fountain at the center of Christmas Town is now on!

    As trial operations continue so do the photos:

    Landscaping around the kiddie ride area is almost complete but the little coaster and jumping tower aren't open yet. Notice the Steel Dolphin coaster barn has been covered by banners.





    A large viewing area along the blue fence is set up for guests to watch shows taking place in the canal - this will be especially popular once the nighttime water parade begins





    Notice on the bridge the transition from the tundra to a warmer climate





    New banners before the dolphin show starts





    The park's signature volcano stands out from everything else in the area





    Inside the volcano the whale sharks and manta rays still haven't arrived but mermaids and a sea turtle has and the restaurant is now open









    Entrance to the Cable Car ride on the polar side





    The outdoor seating at the Sand Castle Restaurant hasn't been set up yet



    Scenic views of the polar mountain as the landscaping comes in place of the scaffolding
