Time to “Let the Memories Begin”…

Work is wrapping up on Mickey’s new home, the Town Square Theater

Goodbye Exposition Hall, hello Town Square Theater still presented by Kodak

The Confectionary facade is still behind tarps

Welcome foolish mortals to the Haunted Mansion refurbishment

Guests haven’t been able to see much the last few months

They have damaged quite a bit of the exiting area…

I can’t recall such a themed handle on a construction wall…

Rumors are this has something to do with re-routing the handicap loading

Moving over to Fantasyland, despite improper permits, it is the Fantasyland Skyway building that will be demolished

As nice as the building is, it would be difficult to use for something else

Enchanted Tales with Belle and Be Our Guest Restaurant are coming along nicely

Rumors indicate Snow White’s Scary Adventures will not close until Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid is complete in 2012

Speaking of The Little Mermaid, it’s coming up fast

A lot of dead space in the middle means to Mine Train Coaster until mid-to-late 2013 :(

Tigger’s Bounce area still closed…

The walls blocking the former Toontown Fair now have billboards for the Storybook Circus

Still no idea what Pete’s Silly Sideshow is…

Looks like this stuff is staying

The building really needs a coat of paint

Work on the Tomorrowland Speedway is just about finished

It wasn’t all bulldozed

Yep, it still exists…

It was Adam’s first time on the island even though he has lived in Orlando his entire life…

Things are actually looking well-kept

Aunt Polly’s has been shuttered forever, but you can buy a drink from a machine

A bridge is being refurbished

The new portion of the Haunted Mansion queue is now covered

Views of the new graveyard area have been blocked

It actually blends in nicely

Some new recruits for The Pirate’s League

Goofy has gotten a pirate’s themed meet and greet near Pirates of the Caribbean

The Enchanted Tiki Room is still closed, but rumors persist the original show is returning…

The water is drained and props are missing

For how much longer?

Work continues on the new Adventureland bridge

Long lines for Princesses

Always nice to be inside the old Adventureland Veranda

The Club 626 Dance Party is back in Tomorrowland

Seems to be very popular

Stitch dancing with guests

Donald’s Boat is history

The walls have really closed in on the Speedway

Obviously, this back path to Toontown is closed

New food featured on the Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant sign

Angus cheeseburgers and pasta selections are now available

The offerings are quite different but the question is, are they any good?

Another look at the new Town Square Theater sign

It looks like it has been there forever, designed to perfectly match the area
