WDWNT Reporter Josh Siegel visited the Magic Kingdom yesterday to see what was new at the park (and with the parking), so let’s take a look at the photos from his trip:
The new Villains parking lot is ready to go!
That’s one way to re-label them
New signage for handicap parking
Some remnants remain
The old lot names are history
A tram stop just for Villains lot parking
The heroes side has not been labeled yet
Tram exit stop that was recently built
A look at the signs: Here’s evil Emperor Zurg
The Sea Witch, Ursula
Try not to sing every time you park in the Cruella lot
Hook, not be confused with a movie of a similar name… no, there is no Rufio parking!
We head into the Magic Kingdom to check on Fantasyland construction. Progress on the Castle Walls has been made!
The tower frame is gone, so we took a step back as well
Pavement in front of Village Haus still being worked on
Crane is up behind Cinderella Castle for Dreamlights installation
Two cranes up in Fantasyland
Not much to see here
Always fun to watch this…
The windows on Maurice’s Cottage/Enchanted Tales with Belle were sealed up
The mountain in front of Beast’s Castle looks great
Not much new over at Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid
The roofs are going on Gaston’s Tavern and Bonjour Village Gifts
A look into Storybook Circus
A look into the Mermaid facade shows that the caverns guests will walk through are taking shape
A large hole has been ripped in one of the Circus tents
The Storybook Circus train station is coming along quickly
The steel frame you see should be the entrance for the station, the larger building is the connected Casey Jr. Roundhouse
The Dumbo queue with Goofini in the background
The County Bounty facade still has not been touched
Tigger’s Bounce Area is still closed…
The Enchanted Grove is still behind tarps
A look at the train station and Casey Jr. Roundhouse through the Dumbo queue
Work being done on the futuristic columns in Tomorrowland
That or someone should tell the Peoplemover that it stepped in something… What? Not funny? OK, how about… Nice shoes Tomorrowland Transit Authority! OK, let’s move on…
Despite the fact that it is supposed to be open by now, the Lunching Pad is still not open
Some work being done by the Peoplemover entrance
Is it just me, or is there a lot of work going on in Tomorrowland? More walls by Space Ranger Spin
A lot of the walls seem to be around planters…
The cast entrance next to the Plaza Restaurant is under refurbishment
Mickey Halloween popcorn buckets available
Casey’s Corner did re-open on time
Nothing new to report except that the wallpaper was replaced…
The Swiss Family Treehouse is closed for refurbishment
We usually do…
We will continue to stare at this Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom display until it works…
Anyone have a key?
Tinker Bell recently put on some fall attire at Pixie Hollow
More Treehouse work
Another Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom area by Pirates
I see you camera…
Work continues on the Frontierland/Adventureland awning
Is this a new restrooms sign?
Work continues on the Pecos Bill’s facade
The Shootin’ Arcade is still closed
Work continues on the facades in Frontierland
The Diamond Horseshoe is getting ready to become the 40th Anniversary shop on October 1st
A new Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom window has popped up in Liberty Square
The speakers are very well hidden
The wiring is not so well hidden
Looks like the entire Skyway building is practically gone at this point
EVEN THE FASTPASS LINE IS LONG!
Thanks for the report Josh!
