The very first step in remodeling the hub in front of Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom is draining the moat…
Interestingly enough, some sections of the drained moat still have the remnants of track from the Plaza Swan Boats, an attraction that closed in the early 1980’s. As you can see in the video, the former loading dock for that attraction is already behind walls and should be demolished shortly.
The hub remodeling is slated to be finished in early 2014.
Thanks to John Corigliano for the video.
