Welcome to the Magic Kingdom

Tarps are down on the right side of Exposition Hall

Some new tarps are up on the left side now

The tarps are finally down on the Disney Clothiers facade, the bottom is still walled off

That’s a big crane!

Work continues on the Fantasyland expansion at a blistering speed

A wall of trees now help to somewhat theme the area

Not much visible change at “Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid”

It appears that the building for “Enchanted Tales with Belle” is also rising along with the “Be Our Guest” restaurant

We’re going to continue to post photos of the new Mad Tea Party roof until it looks normal…

Cats are so lazy…

“Hakuna Matata!”

Over to the Studios fro some Osborne Lights

This fall….

The year’s haven’t been good to Figment


I’m not sure if anything in this case opened after 1983, not 1986…

Tokyo has been taking a lot from the U.S. parks as of late, Fantasmic! will be the next step, although their show will be very different
