The construction on the new pathway from Liberty Square to Cinderella Castle is moving along pretty quickly right now! Our last update was only a couple of days ago, but today on our park walk around Magic Kingdom, we noticed even more progress!

The scaffolding by the brick wall has gotten a lot higher, going completely past the new red bricks they painted in our last update.

They’re working on leveling the dirt on the new portion of the pathway closest to Liberty Square. This is the widened portion, and as soon as the dirt is filled in, the next step is pavement!

You can still see the new red brick work peeking out from underneath the scaffolding, and the progress to the rock work to the left of the photo.

This looks like they’re working on another decorative aspect of the wall, closer to the water.

But the coolest thing we saw today was all of that freshly poured concrete up towards the Fantasyland side! There was a small section that we saw in our last update, but they had added more today. This is the most exciting progress to keep an eye on, because the more pavement we see, it means we’re that much closer to getting this shortcut back.

I’m sure when it’s finished it will look like it’s always been there!

I love the painted brick idea! I know it’s nothing new, but it fascinates me as a method to pull off the “bricked look.”
