The path that runs along the side of Cinderella Castle has been closed for a few months, and we’re eagerly awaiting the reopening. We’ve been watching the progress from the bridge during our visits, and today we noticed some interesting changes. You can see a lot more of the outline for the new widened pathway.
Most of the old hand railings and fencing have been removed from the old path. There’s safety tape for the crew at work, but the permanent metal fences and temporary wooden fences have all been removed. You can see the expansion is well underway.
The walls on both sides of the pathway are broken away, and some have exposed framework.
The new pathway size looks like it will help with guest flow during busy times. Hopefully the cute little benches will return so we can sit and enjoy the beautiful views of the castle. This is a great place for sunset castle photos, and the benches add to the scenery.
From the other direction, we can see how much wider the pathway looks.
It’s exciting to see the progress being made to help improve the guest experience. Even though we miss the convenient cut-through to Fantasyland, it’s going to be so much easier to navigate once it reopens.
