Matt Paul’s 7/3/09 Magic Kingdom Report

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

Matt Paul visited the Magic Kingdom on July 3rd to witness the new citizen naturalization ceremony, as well as to see the “Celebrate America” fireworks and he has some photos to share:

The castle forecourt stage was decked out

This logo is begging t0 be made into a pin :)

It was so busy, that they went this far for crowd control

Even though Stitch’s Supersonic Celebration is closed, the video loop plays on

Space Mountain is still closed….

The Small World facade is finally out from behind tarps, the color scheme is radically different

Strange Yellows and Purples now dominate the structures

The change is a little strange….

Especially under the colorful signage

Everything is in the 4th of July spirit

The Frontierland Train Station is finally out from behind tarps

Matt then watched the fireworks from the top of Disney’s Contemporary Resort

Thanks for the report Matt!
