It’s a gorgeous day at the Magic Kingdom! The Spring Break masses haven’t quite taken hold of the parks yet. I’ll enjoy it while it lasts. Let’s see what’s happening around the most magical place on Earth.
Is there a better way to start your day?
The Tomorrowland Speedway still has a ways to go until it reopens late this Spring.
They extended the construction walls closer to the path in anticipation of some work on this part of the track.
You get this lovely view when you walk out of the side door from the Tomorrowland Light & Power Co.
Where walls wouldn’t fit, scrim went up. They even embedded the poles for the scrim into the concrete. Maybe they’re planning on redoing this concrete anyway?
The new pathway is slowly making itself apparent as they move dirt around. This area has been flattened out.
This is part of the area where the Tomorrowland Speedway will meet the new Tron coaster. They’ve cleared all the trees and grass out of the way.
They’re doing work on the side of the overpass. The new track will make a much tighter turn than previously, so it had to be entirely re-done.
Quick update on the work going on outside the berm. We’re still not sure what’s happening here, but you can see a lot of dirt being moved. The orange line on the hill is about where the railroad track is.
Bay 3 at Cosmic Ray’s is still closed. It’s one of the larger seating areas, so the re-flooring will probably take a while.
If you ever see concrete all notched and marked up like this in the park, it means one thing: concrete replacement!
This old, worn-out concrete in Adventureland is marked to be replaced. They do this a chunk at a time. They lay it at night so it’s dry by park opening. That way, they don’t have to wall anything off.
The bright, salmon-colored concrete is the fresh stuff. It still has the wood spacers in between the blocks. Those will be removed once it’s 100% set. It’s safe to walk on, though.
Something’s going on over in the courtyard of Pinocchio Village Haus. The staircase that leads to the balcony has been walled off. Not sure what they’re doing, if it’s just stone work or something more elaborate. We’ll keep an eye on it.
New, open-edition pins!
We found this new adult hat in Fantasyland at Fantasy Faire.
Have you noticed that the Sword in the Stone is always under a tarp lately?
Well, here it is! They uncover it only for the “sword removal” ceremony, which takes place midday. The rest of the time, it’s hidden from view.
Come on, guys. At these prices, I think you can do better than that.
With the recent passing of former Disney CEO and Walt Disney’s son-in-law, Ron Miller, I decided to take a minute and check out his window on Main Street, U.S.A. Check it out next time you’re there.
That’s it for today! Check back for more photos and updates from Walt Disney World!
