Construction Continues on Tron Coaster

We wanted to check in on the construction for Tron first. It looks like things are starting to come along. We can see and hear the construction vehicles busy at work.

The walkway behind the Tomorrowland Speedway is under construction. We could see the fence removal near the Space Mountain exit.

You can see some fences still standing. For now.

Crowds Everywhere

If you’ve ever visited the parks around the holidays, you know the crowds can be wild. We were told the wait for the Peoplemover was 30 minutes. We had no desire to find out for sure, but we believe it based on the line wrapped around the queue.

The Tomorrowland Speedway also had an extended queue. Get your last rides in before it closes temporarily!

The Haunted Mansion also had a spooky 100 minute wait. The line wrapped down around the water and back up.

Any volunteers?

We saw the new Guest Experience Team wandering around the park as well as at locations with screens that look suspiciously like wait time signs.

Is this… a wait time board?

The Liberty Belle was traveling around the Rivers of America without guests. You’ll be able to take a trip when it reopens this weekend.

Casey’s Corner

We were excited to stop by Casey’s Corner and try the specialty hot dog from the 12 Days of Christmas Dogs. The daily offering was the Philly Cheesesteak Hot Diggity Dog. Unfortunately, it sold out before we could get one. Maybe that was a good thing.
