A section of the Confectionary is behind tarps

The crane can still be found behind Cinderella Castle

Legacy FastPass machines being ripped out at Mickey’s Philharmagic

But a FastPass+ kiosk can be found not far away

A queue set up for the initial rush on most days

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is progressing nicely, rumors indicate we may get a March soft-opening

We can now see the first details on Snow White’s cottage

We can now see emergency railings along the track, at least they look themed

Someone forgot their broom


More details have been added to the strange mechanism with the vultures on it

I wonder what is in the basket…

The signage should be installed soon

Smokin’ on the job…

This guy is my favorite…

Hey, “it’s a small world” was built on martinis and cigarettes, so I’m OK with it

We can only imagine what has arrived in these boxes at the work site

The wishing well is closed off until the crane leaves

Work continues on enclosing the patio on Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe

More FastPass+ by Stitch’s Great Escape

The Casey’s Corner seating area is being expanded

Casey’s is also closed right now

This was the Dole Whip line…


Agrabah Bazaar getting some work done

There is an Enchanted Tiki Room tankard cup now available at Sunshine Tree Terrace

It features the tiki faces from inside the Enchanted Tiki Room

We need more stuff like this to buy, right?

Monorail service in the middle of the day has been suspended and will likely be for a few weeks while some maintenance is performed

Honestly I can't believe Disney allows construction workers to spoke or especially smoke where the public can snap your picture.

I love the tiki-tankard cup and must have but really don't need it – its cool. Ironically, I still have a tiki class from one of the Disney Downtown Village restaurants from the 70's. I display it with pride!


Well they do have smoking sections in the park. And this worker works for a construction company, not Disney. I don't think it could hurt anymore than seeing 10 people smoking next to the dole whip area.


that smoker is hilarious! doc's hard at work
