More and more of Mickey’s Toontown Fair is vanishing

County Bounty signage still up

Traffic jam on the new Speedway lanes…

No change to the Barnstormer yet either

A look behind the walls…

Time to break some concrete

Minnie seems a little too happy about this

Meanwhile, the first piece of Castle Wall rises next door to the Village Haus

The Be Our Guest restaurant and Enchanted Tales with Belle are now enclosed

Bonjour Village Gifts visible as well

Enjoy this view while you can…

Lines for the Haunted Mansion have been bad, but the interactive queue has not re-opened

Painting still going on in there

Rumors say this will open again by the end of the month

Goofy greeting guests at Pirates of the Caribbean

Nothing to see here…

This sign just popped up outside of the Tiki Room. Very 1971…

This sign only fuels the flame of rumors that the original show is returning for the new opening date July 1st

Adventureland bridge still under construction at the time

This is old news by now…


It was a good day to “Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It!” with the crowds being huge


We decided to take the WDW Railroad around to see more Toontown/Storybook Circus progress

We often forget there are a few things to see from the Railroad

Fake deer! How cute!

Half the route to Toontown has these plain fences

These billboards can be found where the station used to be

The water tower is still in place

Still not sure what Pete’s Silly Sideshow is…

Can I take this home from Art of Disney please?

The Barnstormer no longer obstructed by Donald’s Boat

The tents live on! They will never fall!

It appears the back path to Tomorrowland will remain

Work continues on the Town Square Theater

Not sure what these posts are for

Walls inside

A look at Toontown from the TTA

How oddly specific…

Workers out on the building for “Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid”

Just really like this shot…

It was busy

Nothing new has popped up at Tortuga Tavern recently

There is a hidden reference to the old name though…

Work continues on the portion between Tortuga Tavern and Pecos Bill’s

The new boardwalk by the Swiss Family Treehouse is finished and looks great

Double yikes!

You would not believe how popular Club 626 has become

DJ Elliot really had the crowd going! Maybe that is why this is now extended through the summer…

Tried the new Chicken Parmesan at Village Haus: The chicken was very good, the pasta was as i expected… awful
