    The tram that pulled up had the external speakers on it
    Several trees in the esplanade were being worked on, looks like they are either painting or replacing the coverings

    Most, I think almost all, of the lights along the parade route have bubble machines on them now.

    The railing was just painted so the area was blocked off.

    There were quite a few people working on the ODV structures

    The new bridge from the Grand Californian to DCA is looking nearly complete
    The area along the Grand Californian by the Monorail track is blocked off. Looks like they are leveling the area, wonder if its going to be another emergency exit?

    I had read on another site that they had to trim the monorail platform a bit to fit the new one in ok. The caution tape on the end of the platform did look new.
    Here is a look at the monorail approaching that area, it is a tight fit.
    A closer look.
