Half of the monorail platform walkway at the Grand Floridian Resort is being worked on

Over to the Magic Kingdom, where the exterior of the Exposition Hall is still being worked on

Disney Clothiers is still behind tarps, but construction workers were out in the open during the day as well

Walls up outside Casey’s Corner again, workers visible here as well

Views from Cinderella’s Royal Table will be blocked soon

I guess Disney only wants guests to see construction from everywhere else….

The Beauty and the Beast realm buildings are coming along quickly

More work behind the Village Haus

Beams being lifted into place

A view from above the site

The dirt is still being moved around in front of the “Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid” building

Temporary signage at the Thoughtful spot until it closes with the attraction on October 25th

Tarps down on the tree

The tree looks show ready

Piglet is gone!

Expect to see the finished facade and interactive queue in November

“it’s a small world” is back two days early

The exit is now located at the old entrance from pre-2005, using the queue ramp to now send guests out

The entrance hasn’t moved

But guests are now sent to the left and down the old exit ramp

Guests are invited to use both sides

Nothing has changed in the attraction, but some characters are missing for repair

Walls still up in the Haunted Mansion queue

The tombstones are gone for now….

El Pirata Y El Perico behind tarps in Adventureland

A small merchandise cart has popped up near the Princess and the Frog meet and greet in Liberty Square

They are selling Christmas and Princess and the Frog merchandise

New ornament

The Coca-Cola Cool Ship and Cool Scanner are being repaired

The new roof is up on the Mad Tea Party

They look like they may indeed be glass, but are covered for protection at the moment

A lot of work going on at the ride level as well

The Tangled “play and greet” for Rapunzel and Flynn Rider is racing towards a 10/24 debut

Rapunzel’s tower

A number of small lanterns installed

Time to put up the canopy…

Another look at the lanterns

Wow, that was quick!

This was actually taken a little later in the day, they don’t work THAT fast

Let’s take a ride on Dumbo for fun! Ok, Josh went to get pictures…

The top level of the Little Mermaid show building is closed in

Beauty and the Beast buildings

We believe the new cast member tunnel is under this paved area

Another shot of Mermaid

Back to Beauty and the Beast (we’re going in circles on Dumbo remember)


Beauty and the Beast

I’m dizzy…. but we’ll be seeing a lot more of this
