I took a trip to the Magic Kingdom this past weekend to see the new Peter Pan queue in action and managed to take some photos of some other newsworthy things happening around the park right now:

 

The entire back section of Uptown Jewelers is closed, likely Pandora jewelry related

New “it’s a small world” fleece throw

New attraction poster magnets

Island Supply Sunglass Hut opened in Adventureland recently

Even though it has closed yet, some of the new black-light elements coming to Under the Sea have already been installed

The covered extended queue at the Barnstormer was recently completed

There are some cool details on the coverings

Another reference to the original Barnstormer

The back section of the main circle in the hub is now closed off and the Partners statue behind walls

Progress as seen from the Tomorrowland bridge

The old production booths near the Castle are going to be replaced, so a temporary booth is going up

Walls are up around the old booths

Another look at the center

The castle stage shows will go dark for a few weeks as well

Water features now being installed on the Adventureland side

Walls also up in front of the train station for some reason

The entrance arch for the Polynesian Villas and Bungalows has gone up

Those Victorian production booths were/are fantastic. Any idea what will replace these icons?

If you look at some of the renderings it looks as though the booths will be replaced with buildings with match color and even turret style of Cinderella Castle.

exactly – looks like the castle will extend into the hub… similar to the courtyard in the back that leads to new fantasyland. I love the idea

There was a large gap in my WDW visits (between childhood and adulthood). For some reason, those booths were one of the things that really stuck in my mind during my absence.
