Let’s take the monorail to the Magic Kingdom

Tortuga Tavern made the board

Work continues on the Confectionary facade

The new color scheme

The Town Square Theater building has never looked better

A new stand serving hot dogs and sausage has opened in the hub

The love bugs are back… look closely…

Cool Ship was open


Someone likes Mickey…

That’s right, Space Ranger Spin is spitting out Carousel of Progress “FASTPASS” once again to unsuspecting tourists

The roof of the Barnstormer queue is being replaced in preparation for the Storybook Circus

No visible progress on the track

A ladder leads to Beast’s Castle

The rock-work continues to grow next to Maurice’s Cottage and Enchanted Tales with Belle

Still nothing new over here…

The tarps blocking guest’s views of the construction are still up on the castle

Moving over to Downtown Disney, work is being done on the parking lot of the West Side

A bit unconventional, but whatever you need to use to get to Disney World is allowed ;)

A new sign up on the side of the AMC Theaters that will serve as the Dine-In Theater entrance

The new entrance is done as well

A great shirt…

Harley Davidson is moving into the space occupied by Mickey’s Groove and the former LittleMissMatch

Not for long…

Something will soon fill this grassy patch

Guests get a first glimpse of Hyperion Wharf

The remodeled LEGO Imagination Center has opened, featuring a TON of new Disney inspired display

The exterior is quite different

Snow White and Dopey

Toy Story

My personal favorite: the battle between Maleficent and Prince Phillip

The inside has changed quite a bit as well

Harry Potter at Disney World? Yep… and the shops are bigger here…

A building room

The new LittleMissMatch is across the lagoon

At the Studios, one of the markings inside the Writer’s Stop has finally been changed to reflect the new park name

Luckily, one has survived

Cars 2 banners out in the Animation Courtyard

Cars 2 display inside

Funniest citizen of Hollywood competition

Zach got a photo…

AHHHH! That is some scary Sith….

Moving to Epcot, a new retro shirt is now available

Thanks for reading!
