Next stop: Magic Kingdom

With the tarps down, we can get a good look at the overall changes to the former Exposition Hall, but its really just fresh paint and three news signs

The lines haven’t been too long for Mickey

Mickey FASTPASS still available, Princesses are gone

The Main Street Athletic Club/Hall of Champions has been gone for a long time, but the signage was finally changed to Main Street Fashion Apparel

Not sure if we have mentioned this, but all of the costumes in Dream Along with Mickey were slowly changed over the last few months

A strange wall has popped up behind Dumbo in Fantasyland, perhaps for Castle Wall construction?

Rock-work on and to the side of Beast’s Castle is taking shape

Rock-work about to go up on “Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid”

The posts to hold the rocks are already in place

Old news, but Beast’s Castle is starting to expose it’s exterior wall

Gaston’s Tavern and Bonjour Village Gifts should be next to get walls

Back to Prince Eric’s castle

The rockwork will go above the building, blocking views of those items on the roof

Work continues to turn the Barnstormer in the Great Goofini layover

The upper level and the back side await a fresh coat of paint

Let’s try to take a look from the TTA into Storybook Circus

What is this large wall that has popped up?

No idea…

A look at the area where the Toontown sign once stood

Coming soon…

More of the mystery wall

It’s pretty big…

Have we mentioned how popular the Club 626 Dance Party is?

Well, very…

The Tomorrowland Patio is once again a big empty space now that Mickey has moved

Welcome to the Haunted Mansion

It’s still really cool!

something is not right...

Ummm, someone might want to fix that…

Goodnight Magic Kingdom!
