This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Our good friend Robert Ashburn of has provided us with a few photos from his latest trip to the World, so let’s see what’s new and exciting at the Magic Kingdom:

“They’re ripping the top off of Space Mountain!!!” More on that later…

Some Main Street U.S.A. facades are under refurbishment

I like how they made tarps for the Hall of Champions’ awning

There it is, the claw!!!

Actually, it’s just a crane lowering materials into Space Mountain during it’s lengthy refurbishment

The Tomorrowland Transit Authority is getting some TLC during the closure as well, you can see here that they are replacing some of the track lighting

Time for some more “Stitch’s Supersonic Celebration”

Notice the Timekeeper’s head is choice C when Stitch builds a robot

Robo-Mart a division of X-S Tech

Many guests pick out a shaded spot for the show under the TTA track

He’s teleporting

He’s here!

While kids are waiting for the parade, they now have another choice in entertainment besides dancing or playing jumprope

Thanks for the report Robert!!!
