PHOTOS: Robo-Newz and GCN Phone Booth Interactive Prop Areas Filled-In, Will Not Return to Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom

If you’ve been following our weekly maintenance report, you know that the interactive Robo-Newz and GCN phone booth in Tomorrowland have been broken for some time now. Last week, the two props went missing and the holes left in the ground in their absence were covered with plywood. Sadly, those holes were filled in with concrete as of yesterday…

The GCN phone booth has suffered the same fate.

Here’s what the 1994 New Tomorrowland props looked like, in case you forgot:
