Work is wrapping up on the moat and castle refurbishment

We can’t get enough of these Fantasyland construction walls

Walls still up around the old Playful Spot tree

Scuttle’s Landing is still standing

As is some of Ariel’s Grotto

There should be a much bigger sign there…

Walls seem to be popping up all over the park, now in Tomorrowland

The Speedway is still open
