Closer to the gate, the circular structure is taking shape and rebar was added to the perimeter. We can’t wait to see what this becomes! Is it a new landscaping feature?

In the center of the gate area is another scrimmed section, enclosing more improvements.  This existing structure is being used for storage.

Behind the green beams, the walkway between Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and the Magic Kingdom is coming along!

We’re excited to see all of the new changes coming to the entrance of Magic Kingdom. Stay tuned as see more construction reach completion.
