Walls went up late Monday in the Hollywood Pictures Backlot as workers began the first phase of the project. When completed in 2012, the trolleys will travel and carry guests from the park’s entrance around to the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror ride area.
On Tuesday, visitors started seeing the walls by the Playhouse Disney - Live on Stage theater and the Tower of Terror ride. Signs announce the upcoming Hollywood Land-Buena Vista Street line with four stations, which are set to be completed in May 2012. See a picture from the Disneyland Gazette’s Twitter HERE.
The work in the Hollywood Pictures Backlot is scheduled to run through April, said John McClintock, a Disneyland Resort spokesman. The attraction is expected be installed in phases and will be one of the last parts to be completed in the project, he said.
The trolleys are reminiscent of the Pacific Electric Red Cars that ran through Los Angeles County in the 1920s when Walt Disney first arrived in California. The entrance, starting with a Buena Vista Street, will be designed with the architecture of Los Angeles during that period.
