According to a recent permit filed by Disney, they will be adding a permanent shade structure to the existing security area in the¬†walkway between the Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

A security checkpoint was added to this area back in 2017, but it’s really just a tent/canopy with a heavy tarp, so seeing something more permanent will clean up the look of the walkway as well as add more space as it appears they’ll be expanding into the nearby landscaping. Currently it is just the width of the sidewalk and it can get congested during peak times.

According to permit overviews, light fixtures and additional fencing will also be added.
