WDWNT is back from another trip to the Walt Disney World Resort. Let’s take a look at what’s going on at the “Construction Kingdom”:

A Bolt poster outside the Magic Kingdom.

The temporary parade route that Disney Dreams Come True will be following during the Liberty Square bridge’s refurbishment. Click HERE for a bigger version of this picture.

Steel showing in-between 2 parts of City Hall.

And here is the new top to City Hall at dusk.

Construction on the Liberty Square bridge, which is closed off to guests… and parades.

Work going on under the bridge that leads to the Mad Tea Party & Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe.

They’re already starting to put up the Cinderella Castle Christmas Lights.

The curtains aren’t hanging on the sides of the screen to Mickey’s PhilharMagic, so instead this projection is shown.

They’re doing some work on the pavement in Liberty Square.

Seems they’re painting the poles near the Emporium.

The Grand Marshal Pre-Parade to Disney Dreams Come True, running up & down Main Street USA before the Disney Dreams Come True Parade showings at 3 & 7pm.

Nice tires on the Grand Marshall car.

Let’s take a look at Disney Dreams Come True, in its slightly abbreviated form.

The Princess float is not in the parade at the moment, so the Princesses are with the Fab 5 on the infamous Castle float.

Now here are a couple of videos from the backwards running Disney Dreams Come True Parade:

And now the parade returns back down Main Street:

Whew, that’s it for Disney Dreams Come True. Now moving over to Epcot:

Let’s take a look at the new StormStruck exhibit now open in Innoventions.

Work being done on the side of the American Adventure.

Work being done to the Japan pavilion once again.

Merchandise for the Beijing Olympics on sale at the China pavilion.

Construction going on at the United Kingdom pavilion.

A couple of Mickey Mouse shirts for sale inside MouseGear.

And here are some shirts in this design for various characters.

Back into Innoventions, the long-running IBM exhibit has been removed.

The lights in the concrete outside MouseGear are covered while being worked on.

The Toy Spring Action Shooters are finally on sale at MouseGear of all places!

Moving over to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, paint is already peeling on a door at Toy Story Midway Mania.

Can you believe that people are putting their feet on this wall at Toy Story Midway Mania!?

Notice the un-painted section & burnt out lights.

Mr. Potato Head was broken down again.

This woman was wearing a Disney-MGM Studios shirt from 1990.

A new piece taking shape on top of the new north wing being constructed at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

Hope you enjoyed the photos!
