Brandon Struve took a short trip to the Magic Kingdom on Monday to check out the new audio playing on the TTA and has some photos to share of his day in the park:

A new merchandise location shaped like the tip board has replaced the merchandise cart near the Plaza Ice Cream parlor

In Fantasyland, the facades of Mrs. Potts’ Cupboard, Friar’s Nook, and the Seven Dwarves Mine are behind tarps

All of the locations are open

The back of the castle is still behind tarps

The Pinocchio Village Haus is finally out from behind tarps

The entire facade looks really great!

As noted already, the TTA is running with a new audio spiel

A nice surprise inside Space Mountain….

trains are running, it look’s like they may have a new silver paint scheme as well

Some primer has been applied to the back of the Light and Power Co. arcade

Primer has been applied to most of this side

The Fastpass distribution area and the Space Mountain pylons appear to have been painted silver

A new color scheme has been painted on the Arcade, the black and beige looks quite nice

This shot should give you an idea of the change in colors

A closer look
