The Magic Kingdom is ready for the holidays

Decorations at the Exposition Hall

Work continues on the facade, even during park hours

We can see you…

The window is actually a door for maintenance

Disney Clothiers facade still behind tarps

The new roof is up at the Mad Tea Party

Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid is rising quickly

The “Be Our Guest” restaurant is coming along as well
