Robert Ashburn of Figment’s Media.Net and FTN has provided us with some his trip to the Magic Kingdom on Sunday. Let’s take a look at some newsworthy items using this new gallery option:


Space in Tomorrowland being prepared for Stitch’s Supersonic Dance Celebration that will debut in the Spring


The old Skyway building is also getting some much needed TLC during this time


Haven’t seen these signs in a while, I guess this still is 1994 Tomorrowland


Sign directing guests to the restrooms around the walls during this refurbishment


The entire building is not under tarps


A closer look


Resort-wide sales continue through the holiday season


The refurbishment of the second half of Tinker Bell’s Treasures reveals a new shop, Castle Couture


Some great new decor can be found in the new shop


Aurora’s dress changes colors as Fauna and Merryweather fight over red and blue


This seems to be an extension of the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, selling the princess outfits that parents can purchase


There is a section for each princess


The work on the upper level of Pinnochio’s Village Haus is complete and it looks great


Work on the lower section continues


The exterior of the Hall of Presidents is now being refurbished in preparation for the July 2009 re-opening


The self-service kiosks at Pecos Bill’s have been moved to the center, surprising when the entire restaurant closes for refurbishment in January


It seems people are still afraid to use them


We’ll end this report with a nighttime picture of the new food vendor replacing the Frontierland Fry Wagon
