The path to Storybook Circus

Work on the Dumbo queue continues

Beast’s Castle

The lift hill for The Barnstormer looks great, complete with Goofy’s outline

For the first time since work began, the site actually looks pretty clean

Some Imagineer and construction workers under a tent near “Dumbo Ditch”

Paint going on the silver portion of the Dumbo tent

Too far away to see what they are up to…

If you look closely at the Barnstormer building, you can see a banner Goofy has crashed through right above the doorway

We can make out the words “Fly Again”

Dear guests who contribute to other sites, stop standing on stuff. It is stupid, dangerous, and might get you thrown out of the park…

A look toward Storybook Circus

Still can’t see into the tent…

A column remains in “Dumbo Ditch”

Construction being filmed by Disney
